Now in the time of his distress King Ahaz became increasingly unfaithful to the LORD. This is that King Ahaz.
For a he sacrificed to the gods of Damascus which had defeated him, saying, "Because the gods of the kings of Syria help them, I will sacrifice to them b that they may help me." But they were the ruin of him and of all Israel.
So Ahaz gathered the articles of the house of God, cut in pieces the articles of the house of God, c shut up the doors of the house of the LORD, and made for himself altars in every corner of Jerusalem.
And in every single city of Judah he made high places to burn incense to other gods, and provoked to anger the LORD God of his fathers.
d Now the rest of his acts and all his ways, from first to last, indeed they are written in the book of the kings of Judah and Israel.
So Ahaz rested with his fathers, and they buried him in the city, in Jerusalem; but they e did not bring him into the tombs of the kings of Israel. Then Hezekiah his son reigned in his place.

2 Chronicles 25:14
Now it was so, after Amaziah came from the slaughter of the Edomites, that he brought the gods of the people of Seir, set them up to be his gods, and bowed down before them and burned incense to them.
But we will certainly do whatever has gone out of our own mouth, to burn incense to the queen of heaven and pour out drink offerings to her, as we have done, we and our fathers, our kings and our princes, in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem. For then we had plenty of food, were well-off, and saw no trouble.
"But since we stopped burning incense to the queen of heaven and pouring out drink offerings to her, we have lacked everything and have been consumed by the sword and by famine."
