2 Chronicles 33:1. Manasseh was twelve years old, &c. — This and the following verses, to 2 Chronicles 33:11, are taken out of 2 Kings 21:1, &c., where the reader will find them explained.33:1-20 We have seen Manasseh's wickedness; here we have his repentance, and a memorable instance it is of the riches of God's pardoning mercy, and the power of his renewing grace. Deprived of his liberty, separated from his evil counsellors and companions, without any prospect but of ending his days in a wretched prison, Manasseh thought upon what had passed; he began to cry for mercy and deliverance. He confessed his sins, condemned himself, was humbled before God, loathing himself as a monster of impiety and wickedness. Yet he hoped to be pardoned through the abundant mercy of the Lord. Then Manasseh knew that Jehovah was God, able to deliver. He knew him as a God of salvation; he learned to fear, trust in, love, and obey him. From this time he bore a new character, and walked in newness of life. Who can tell what tortures of conscience, what pangs of grief, what fears of wrath, what agonizing remorse he endured, when he looked back on his many years of apostacy and rebellion against God; on his having led thousands into sin and perdition; and on his blood-guiltiness in the persecution of a number of God's children? And who can complain that the way of heaven is blocked up, when he sees such a sinner enter? Say the worst against thyself, here is one as bad who finds the way to repentance. Deny not to thyself that which God hath not denied to thee; it is not thy sin, but thy impenitence, that bars heaven against thee.Compare references and notes. The author of Chronicles differs chiefly from Kings in additions (see the 2 Kings 21:17 note). The central part of this chapter (2 Chronicles 33:11-19) is almost entirely new matter. CHAPTER 33

2Ch 33:1-10. Manasseh's Wicked Reign.

They being slain, Josiah succeedeth him, 2 Chronicles 33:25.

This and the following verses, to ver 11, are taken out of 2 Kings 21:1 &c.

Manasseh was twelve years old,.... From hence to the end of 2 Chronicles 33:9 the same things are recorded, almost word for word, as in 2 Kings 21:1, see the notes there. See Gill on 2 Kings 21:1. Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem:
Ch. 2 Chronicles 33:1-10 (Cp. 2 Kings 21:1-16). Manasseh’s Reign. His Apostasy

1. in Jerusalem] The Chronicler omits here the name of Manasseh’s mother, Hephzi-bah.Verse 1. - The parallel adds the name of Manasseh's mother, the well-omened name Hephzibah, "My delight is in her" (Isaiah 62:4). Storehouses also (magazines) for the agricultural produce, and stalls for all manner of cattle, and stalls for the herds, like David (1 Chronicles 27:25.) and Uzziah (2 Chronicles 26:10). מסכּנות is a transposition of מכנסות, storehouses, from כּנס, to heap up. "Cattle and cattle" equals all kinds of cattle. ארות, synonymous with אריות (2 Chronicles 9:5), stables or stalls for cattle. The word אורות, which occurs only here, must have the same signification, and be held to be a transposed form of that word.
