2 Chronicles 33:22 Commentary - The Treasury of Scripture Knowledgeas did Manasseh: 2Ch 33:1-10, 2Ki 21:1-11, 2Ki 21:20, Eze 20:18
for Amon sacrificed: Amon's conduct is recorded as like his father Manasseh, in sacrificing to graven images; by which some think it is an evidence that Manasseh did not truly repent, but they forget how many good kings had wicked sons. In one point of view Manasseh was defective, although it cannot be supposed that it affected his eternal state; for when he cast out the images, he did not utterly deface and destroy them, according to the law in Deu 7:5, which required, moreover, that the graven images should be burnt with fire. How necessary that law was, this instance shows; for the carved images being only thrown aside, and not burnt, Amon knew where to find them, soon set them up, and sacrificed to them. Isa 44:13-20
Reciprocal: 2Ki 23:37 - all that 2Ch 34:3 - purge 2Ch 34:11 - the kings
