2 Chronicles 33:11-13

Context
33:11 So the Lord brought against them the commanders of the army of the king of Assyria. They seized Manasseh, put hooks in his nose, 1  bound him with bronze chains, and carried him away to Babylon. 33:12 In his pain 2  Manasseh 3  asked the Lord his God for mercy 4  and truly 5  humbled himself before the God of his ancestors. 6  33:13 When he prayed to the Lord, 7  the Lord 8  responded to him 9  and answered favorably 10  his cry for mercy. The Lord 11  brought him back to Jerusalem to his kingdom. Then Manasseh realized that the Lord is the true God.
