2 Chronicles 33:9-13

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. 33:12 In his pain 4  Manasseh 5  asked the Lord his God for mercy 6  and truly 7  humbled himself before the God of his ancestors. 8  33:13 When he prayed to the Lord, 9  the Lord 10  responded to him 11  and answered favorably 12  his cry for mercy. The Lord 13  brought him back to Jerusalem to his kingdom. Then Manasseh realized that the Lord is the true God.
