SEV Biblia, Chapter 33:19 Su oración también, y cómo fue oído, todos sus pecados, y su prevaricación, los lugares donde edificó altos y había puesto bosques e ídolos antes que se humillase, he aquí estas cosas están escritas en las palabras de los videntes.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Chronicles 33:19 Verse 19. His prayer also] What is called the Prayer of Manasseh, king of Judah, when he was holden captive in Babylon, being found among our apocryphal books, I have inserted it at the end of the chapter, without either asserting or thinking that it is the identical prayer which this penitent king used when a captive in Babylon. But, as I have observed in another place, there are many good sentiments in it; and some sinners may find it a proper echo of the distresses of their hearts; I therefore insert it.
Written among the sayings of the seers.] "They are written in the words of Chozai." -Targum. So says the Vulgate. The Syriac has Hunan the prophet; and the Arabic has Saphan the prophet.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 19. His prayer also , etc.] Was not only recorded in the above annals, but in the writings of another person after mentioned: and how God was entreated of him ; heard his prayer, and showed him favour both in a temporal and spiritual way; for though the Jews would not allow that he was saved, or had a part in the world to come, eternal life f151 , yet there appears no just reason why it should be so thought: and all his sin, and his trespass ; his impieties, idolatries, and murders: and the places wherein he built high places; (see 2 Chronicles 33:3) and set up groves ; statues in groves: and graven images, before he was humbled ; (see 2 Chronicles 33:7,22), behold, they are written among the sayings of the seers ; or of Hosea, the name of a prophet who wrote the history of his own times; so the Targrim and Vulgate Latin version; and, according to the Jewish chronology f152 , there was a prophet of this name in the times of Amon the son of Manasseh.
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)
