How Ancient Taxes Were Collected Under King Manasseh

When April 15 rolls around this year, taxpayers may take some small comfort in the fact that taxes are by no means a modern invention. Benjamin Franklin and Mark Twain both famously remarked about the certainty of death and taxes, and a recent archaeological discovery concerning ancient taxes in Jerusalem has added to scholars’ certainty about a tax system in ancient Israel, especially during the reign of Judah’s King Manasseh.

King Manasseh was not popular with the Biblical authors (as Barkay puts it, ‚Äúthey hated his guts‚ÄĚ), but Assyrian records suggest that he implemented heavy taxes on his people in order to pay tribute to King Esarhaddon and then King Ashurbanipal, Sennacherib‚Äôs successors in Assyria. These ancient taxes thus helped King Manasseh maintain relative peace in Judah during his 55-year reign. ...

As we have seen, the two primary duties of authority are to punish evildoers and to reward those who do right. Yet government also has a third function ‚ÄĒ collecting taxes:

"For because of this you also pay taxes, for rulers are servants of God, devoting themselves to this very thing. Render to all what is due them: tax to whom tax is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor" (Romans 13:6-7). NASB

excerpt from, Rendering To Caesar---A Biblical Perspective On Government

2 Kings 21
16 Moreover, Manasseh shed very much innocent blood until he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another; besides his sin with which he made Judah sin, in doing evil in the sight of the LORD.---NASB

This is an interesting article, which doesn't mention why God didn't like the sayings that Manasseh did.
