6 2 Kings 21 (NIV) [Manasseh] did evil in the eyes of the Lord…he erected altars to Baal and made an Asherah pole…he bowed down to all the starry hosts and worshiped them…he built altars in the temple of the Lord…In both courts of the temple of the Lord, he built altars to all the starry hosts…

7 2 Kings 21 (NIV) he sacrificed his own son in the fire, practiced sorcery and divination, and consulted mediums and spiritists… he took the carved Asherah pole he had made and put it in the temple… moreover, Manasseh also shed so much innocent blood that he filled Jerusalem from end to end.

13 Jeremiah 32:30,35 (NIV) The people of Judah have done nothing but evil in my sight… they built high places for Baal in the Valley of Ben Hinnom to sacrifice their sons and daughters to Molech, though I never commanded, nor did it enter my mind, that they should do such a detestable thing.

14 Jeremiah 2:2-3 (NIV) “I remember the devotion of your youth, how as a bride you loved me and followed me through the desert, through a land not sown. Israel was holy to the Lord, the firstfruits of his harvest; all who devoured her were held guilty, and disaster overtook them,” declares the Lord.

15 Jeremiah 2:20,26,27,32 (NIV) On every high hill and under every spreading tree you lay down as a prostitute…their kings and their officials, their priests and their prophets. They say to wood, 'You are my father,' and to stone, 'You gave me birth.'…my people have forgotten me, days without number.

16 Jeremiah 2:5,11 (NIV) "What fault did your fathers find in me, that they strayed so far from me? They followed worthless idols and became worthless themselves…Has a nation ever changed its gods? (Yet they are not gods at all.) But my people have exchanged their Glory for worthless idols.”

17 Jeremiah 2:13 (NIV) My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.
