Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

In the valley of Hinnom, south of Jerusalem. The place had an evil reputation because children had been sacrificed there to the gods Baal and Molech (Jer. 7: 31) and King Ahaz and Manasseh are alleged to have so offered their own sons (2 Chron. 28: 3; 33: 6). King Josiah forbade the practice (2 Kgs. 23: 10).
