He did not humble himself before the Lord as his father Manasseh had done.
The sacrifices God desires are a humble spirit
The Lord said to me,
One friend deceives another and no one tells the truth. These people have trained themselves
Maybe they will pay attention and each of them will stop living the evil way they do.
But if you warn the wicked man to change his behavior,
When they return to you with all their heart and being
The Lord regretted
Then the Lord relented over the evil that he had said he would do to his people.
The people regretted what had happened to
The leaders of Israel and the king humbled themselves and said, “The Lord is just.”
Tremble with fear and do not sin!
Turn back toward us, O Lord! How long must this suffering last?
He remembered his covenant with them, and relented
The Lord makes this promise on oath
For the Lord vindicates
The people did not return to the one who struck them, they did not seek reconciliation
You Israelites! Return to the one against whom you have so blatantly rebelled!
