2 Chronicles 33:1-13 (King James Version)

1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem:

2 But did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, like unto the abominations of the heathen, whom the LORD had cast out before the children of Israel.

3 For he built again the high places which Hezekiah his father had broken down, and he reared up altars for Baalim, and made groves, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them.

4 Also he built altars in the house of the LORD, whereof the LORD had said, In Jerusalem shall my name be for ever.

5 And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the LORD.

6 And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.

7 And he set a carved image, the idol which he had made, in the house of God, of which God had said to David and to Solomon his son, In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen before all the tribes of Israel, will I put my name for ever:

8 Neither will I any more remove the foot of Israel from out of the land which I have appointed for your fathers; so that they will take heed to do all that I have commanded them, according to the whole law and the statutes and the ordinances by the hand of Moses.

9 So Manasseh made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to err, and to do worse than the heathen, whom the LORD had destroyed before the children of Israel.

10 And the LORD spake to Manasseh, and to his people: but they would not hearken.

11 Wherefore the LORD brought upon them the captains of the host of the king of Assyria, which took Manasseh among the thorns, and bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon.

12 And when he was in affliction, he besought the LORD his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers,

13 And prayed unto him: and he was intreated of him, and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the LORD he was God.

 

2 Chronicles 33:1-13 (New International Version)

1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem fifty-five years.

2 He did evil in the eyes of the LORD, following the detestable practices of the nations the LORD had driven out before the Israelites.

3 He rebuilt the high places his father Hezekiah had demolished; he also erected altars to the Baals and made Asherah poles. He bowed down to all the starry hosts and worshiped them.

4 He built altars in the temple of the LORD, of which the LORD had said, "My Name will remain in Jerusalem forever."

5 In both courts of the temple of the LORD, he built altars to all the starry hosts.

6 He sacrificed his sons in the fire in the Valley of Ben Hinnom, practiced sorcery, divination and witchcraft, and consulted mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the eyes of the LORD, provoking him to anger.

7 He took the carved image he had made and put it in God's temple, of which God had said to David and to his son Solomon, "In this temple and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, I will put my Name forever.

8 I will not again make the feet of the Israelites leave the land I assigned to your forefathers, if only they will be careful to do everything I commanded them concerning all the laws, decrees and ordinances given through Moses."

9 But Manasseh led Judah and the people of Jerusalem astray, so that they did more evil than the nations the LORD had destroyed before the Israelites.

10 The LORD spoke to Manasseh and his people, but they paid no attention.

11 So the LORD brought against them the army commanders of the king of Assyria, who took Manasseh prisoner, put a hook in his nose, bound him with bronze shackles and took him to Babylon.

12 In his distress he sought the favor of the LORD his God and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers.

13 And when he prayed to him, the LORD was moved by his entreaty and listened to his plea; so he brought him back to Jerusalem and to his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the LORD is God.

2 Chronicles 33:1-13 (SDA Clear Word Bible)

1 Manasseh was only twelve years old when he became king of Judah, being born three years after his father Hezekiah was healed.

2 He did evil in the eyes of the Lord and took up idolatrous practices of the people who were in the land before the children of Israel came there.

3 He rebuilt pagan places of worship that his father Hezekiah had destroyed, erected alters to Baal and Asherah the fertility goddess, and worshipped the sun, moon and stars.

4 He even erected alters inside the Temple, the very place the Lord had made holy and declared that only He should be worshipped.

5 In both the outer and inner courts of the Temple he built alters to the constellations of heaven.

6 He sacrificed his infant sons as burnt offerings to pagan gods in the Hinnom Valley just outside Jerusalem. He practiced witchcraft and sorcery and even consulted spirit mediums and listened to the advice of demons. He sinned against the Lord as no other king before him.

7 He took the carved image of fertility goddess, Asherah, and set it up in the very place in the Temple about which the Lord had said to David, "I have chosen this Temple in Jerusalem in the territory of Judah to put my name. Here is where my people are to come to worship me.

8 I will not let my people be driven out of the land that I have given them as long as they keep my commandments, my laws and the ordinances that I gave them through my servant Moses."

9 But Manasseh led his people away from the Lord until they were more evil in His sight than the heathen who had been in the land before the children of Israel came.

10 The Lord sent prophets with messages to Manasseh and to the people, but they paid no attention to them.

11 So the Lord allowed the king of Assyria and his army to come against Judah. They came and captured Manasseh, put a hook in his nose and put him in chains. Then they led him away to the land of Babylon, which was then still part of the Assyrian Empire.

12 In his distress Manasseh humbled himself, turned to the God of his fathers and begged the Lord to help him.

13 The Lord heard his prayer and the king of Assyria unexpectedly released Manasseh and let him return to Jerusalem to rule Judah. This convinced Manasseh that the Lord is real and that He is God.

Our Observation

William Miller's 1843 "Time Proved Fifteen Different Ways" - Proof #1, used 2 Chronicles 33:9 as part of the the basis for its calculations:

ONE:

I prove it by the time given by Moses, in the 26th chapter of Leviticus, being seven times that the people of God are to be in bondage to the kingdoms of this world; or in Babylon, literal and mystical; which seven times cannot be understood less than seven times 360 revolutions of the earth in its orbit, making 2520 years. I believe this began according to Jeremiah 15:4, —

"And I will cause them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth, because of Manasseh, the son of Hezekiah, king of Judah, for that which he did in Jerusalem,"

and Isa. 7:8,

"For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Resin: and within three score and five years shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people,"

– when Manasseh was carried captive to Babylon, and Israel was no more a nation,– see chronology, 2 Chron. 33:9,

"So Manasseh made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to err, and to do worse than the heathen, whom the Lord had destroyed before the children of Israel,"

– the 677th year B.C.

Then take 677 out of 2520, leaves A.D. 1843, when the punishment of the people of God will end.
