King James Version (KJV)
2 Kings 23:26
23. But in the eighteenth yeere of king Iosiah, wherein this Passeouer was holden to the Lord in Ierusalem. 24. ¶ Moreouer the workers with familiar spirits, and the wizards, and the images, and the idoles, and all the abominations that were spied in the land of Iudah, and in Ierusalem, did Iosiah put away, that he might performe the wordes of the lawe, which were written in the booke that Hilkiah the priest found in the house of the Lord. 25. And like vnto him was there no king before him, that turned to the Lord with all his heart, and with all his soule, and with all his might, according to all the Law of Moses, neither after him arose there any like him. 26. ¶ Notwithstanding, the Lord turned not from the fiercenesse of his great wrath, wherwith his anger was kindled against Iudah, because of all the prouocations that Manasseh had prouoked him withall. 27. And the Lord said, I will remoue Iudah also out of my sight, as I haue remoued Israel, and will cast off this citie Ierusalem, which I haue chosen, and the house of which I sayd, My name shall be there. 28. Now the rest of the actes of Iosiah, and all that hee did, are they not written in the booke of the chronicles of the kings of Iudah? 29. ¶ In his dayes, Pharaoh Nechoh king of Egypt, went vp against the king of Assyria to the riuer Euphrates: and king Iosiah went against him, and hee slew him at Megiddo, when he had seene him.
