SEV Biblia, Chapter 33:12 Mas luego que fue puesto en angustias, orķ ante el SEŅOR su Dios, humillado grandemente en la presencia del Dios de sus padres.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Chronicles 33:12 Verse 12. And when he was in affliction] Here is a very large addition in the Chaldee: "For the Chaldeans made a brazen mule, pierced full of small holes, and put him within it, and kindled fires all around it; and when he was in this misery, he sought help of all the idols which he had made, but obtained none, for their were of no use. He therefore repented, and prayed before the Lord his God, and was greatly humbled in the sight of the Lord God of his fathers."
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 12. And when he was in affliction , etc.] In prison; however, in fetters; according to the Targum, the Chaldeans made an instrument of brass with holes in it, and put him in it, and fire about it, something like the brasen bull of Perillus; and the above Arabian writer calls it a tower of brass: he besought the Lord his God ; by prayer and supplication: and humbled himself greatly before the Lord God of his fathers ; confessing his sins, expressing great sorrow and repentance for them.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-20 - We have seen Manasseh's wickedness; here we have his repentance, and memorable instance it is of the riches of God's pardoning mercy, an the power of his renewing grace. Deprived of his liberty, separate from his evil counsellors and companions, without any prospect but of ending his days in a wretched prison, Manasseh thought upon what ha passed; he began to cry for mercy and deliverance. He confessed his sins, condemned himself, was humbled before God, loathing himself as monster of impiety and wickedness. Yet he hoped to be pardoned throug the abundant mercy of the Lord. Then Manasseh knew that Jehovah wa 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 ne character, and walked in newness of life. Who can tell what tortures of conscience, what pangs of grief, what fears of wrath, what agonizin remorse he endured, when he looked back on his many years of apostac and rebellion against God; on his having led thousands into sin an perdition; and on his blood-guiltiness in the persecution of a numbe of God's children? And who can complain that the way of heaven i blocked up, when he sees such a sinner enter? Say the worst agains thyself, here is one as bad who finds the way to repentance. Deny no to thyself that which God hath not denied to thee; it is not thy sin but thy impenitence, that bars heaven against thee. (2Ch 33:21-25)
