    Barnes' Notes on 2 Chronicles 33:11

    The Assyrian monuments contain no record of this expedition; but there can be little doubt that it fell into the reign of Esarhaddon (2 Kings 19:37 note), who reigned at least thirteen years. Esarhaddon mentions Manasseh among his tributaries; and he was the only king of Assyria who, from time to time, held his court at Babylon.

    Among the thorns - Translate - " with rings;" and see 2 Kings 19:28 note.
