2 Chron. 33:9‑13,19• 9So Manasseh made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to err, and to do worse than the heathen, whom the Lord had destroyed before the children of Israel.
10And the Lord spake to Manasseh, and to his people: but they would not hearken.

19His prayer also, and how God was entreated of him, and all his sin, and his trespass, and the places wherein he built high places, and set up groves and graven images, before he was humbled: behold, they are written among the sayings of the seers.

But for this reason mercy was shewn me, that in me, the first, Jesus Christ might display the whole long-suffering, for a delineation ofb those about to believe on him to life eternal.

JND Translation Notes

+
b
As "outline," 2 Tim. 1.13. It is a mistake to confine delineation to long-suffering, and so make "of" mean "for." "for those," etc. Paul was a delineation of Christ's ways in their case, even, I doubt not, in the case of the rebellious Jews hereafter. the whole long-suffering was in Paul's case, so as to picture every case. In those who companied with Christ when alive this was not so, though the grace was really the same; but there was not the same showing forth of it.
