Manasseh was twelve years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem fifty-five years. His mother’s name was Hephzibah. He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, following the detestable practices of the nations the Lord had driven out before the Israelites.
2 Kings 21:1-2//
Fifty-five years is such a long time for the Lord to be patient with an evil-doer. I praise Him for being patient with me.
