Judah’s King Ahaz

28 Ahaz was 20 years old(A) when he became king and reigned 16 years in Jerusalem. He did not do what was right in the Lord’s sight(B) like his ancestor David, for he walked in the ways of the kings of Israel(C) and made cast images of the Baals.(D) He burned incense in the Valley of Hinnom(E) and burned his children in[a](F) the fire, imitating the detestable practices of the nations the Lord had dispossessed before the Israelites.(G) He sacrificed and burned incense on the high places,(H) on the hills, and under every green tree.
