bound him with fetters

2 Chronicles 33:11

33:11 bound him with fetters. The word “fetters” is actually the word for “brass” or “bronze.” Whether Manasseh’s brass fetters consisted of chains or hooks is not known. Engravings found by archaeologists show that one of the practices of the cruel Assyrians was to lead captives leaders by means of hooks in their noses. Compare II Kings 19:28, where the Assyrian king himself is threatened with divine judgment analogous to this despicable practice of theirs.
