Blessings of Sincerely Humbling Ourselves Before God

Manasseh…did what was evil in the LORD’s sight…

He rebuilt the pagan shrines…

constructed altars for the images of Baal

and set up Asherah poles.

He also bowed before all the powers of the heavens

and worshiped them.

He built pagan altars in the Temple of the LORD…

Manasseh also sacrificed his own sons in the fire…

He practiced sorcery, divination, and witchcraft,

and he consulted with mediums and psychics.

He did much that was evil in the LORD’s sight…

Manasseh even took a carved idol he had made

and set it up in God’s Temple…

The LORD spoke to Manasseh and his people,

but they ignored all his warnings.

So the LORD sent the commanders of the Assyrian armies,

and they took Manasseh prisoner…

But while in deep distress,

Manasseh sought the LORD his God

and sincerely humbled himself before the God of his ancestors.

And when he prayed,

the LORD listened to him

and was moved by his request

So the LORD brought Manasseh back…

2 Chronicles 33:1-3, 4-7, 10-13
