40 Extra-Jerusalem sacriﬁce is also included in the account of Ahaz, although here again the report diﬀers from that found in Kings. ” The Chronicler adds a notice that Ahaz encouraged oﬀerings outside Jerusalem: “In every city of Judah he made high places to make oﬀerings (r+ql) to other gods” (2 Chr 28:25).

A problem remains in identifying the “there” where the sacriﬁce takes place.
