2 Chronicles 33:9-11

Context
33:9 But Manasseh misled the people of 1  Judah and the residents of Jerusalem so that they sinned more than the nations whom the Lord had destroyed ahead of the Israelites.

33:10 The Lord confronted 2  Manasseh and his people, but they paid no attention. 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, 3  bound him with bronze chains, and carried him away to Babylon.

1 tn Heb “misled Judah.” The words “the people of” are supplied in the translation for clarity. The Hebrew text uses the name “Judah” here by metonymy for the people of Judah.

2 tn Heb “spoke to.”

3 tn Heb “and they seized him with hooks.”
