Why is Prayer of Manasseh shown with the King James Bible?

1 O Lord, Almighty God of our fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and of their righteous seed; who hast made heaven and earth, with all the ornament thereof; who hast bound the sea by the word of thy commandment; who hast shut up the deep, and sealed it by thy terrible and glorious name; whom all men fear, and tremble before thy power; for the majesty of thy glory cannot be borne, and thine angry threatening toward sinners is importable: but thy merciful promise is unmeasurable and unsearchable; for thou art the most high Lord, of great compassion, longsuffering, very merciful, and repentest of the evils of men. Thou, O Lord, according to thy great goodness hast promised repentance and forgiveness to them that have sinned against thee: and of thine infinite mercies hast appointed repentance unto sinners, that they may be saved. Thou therefore, O Lord, that art the God of the just, hast not appointed repentance to the just, as to Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, which have not sinned against thee; but thou hast appointed repentance unto me that am a sinner: for I have sinned above the number of the sands of the sea. My transgressions, O Lord, are multiplied: my transgressions are multiplied, and I am not worthy to behold and see the height of heaven for the multitude of mine iniquities. I am bowed down with many iron bands, that I cannot lift up mine head, neither have any release: for I have provoked thy wrath, and done evil before thee: I did not thy will, neither kept I thy commandments: I have set up abominations, and have multiplied offences. Now therefore I bow the knee of mine heart, beseeching thee of grace. I have sinned, O Lord, I have sinned, and I acknowledge mine iniquities: wherefore, I humbly beseech thee, forgive me, O Lord, forgive me, and destroy me not with mine iniquites. Be not angry with me for ever, by reserving evil for me; neither condemn me to the lower parts of the earth. For thou art the God, even the God of them that repent; and in me thou wilt shew all thy goodness: for thou wilt save me, that am unworthy, according to thy great mercy. Therefore I will praise thee for ever all the days of my life: for all the powers of the heavens do praise thee, and thine is the glory for ever and ever. Amen.

    The prayer of Manasseh is very powerful ,this tells us that nobody is beyond Gods Grace, not even King Manasseh!
  • Darlene
    I think it shouldn't have been removed, as all the Books letters all play a part in teaching mankind to be more like Jesus, 2Tim 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. Put all Books Letters Back!

    Clearly YAH is a god of mercy, love, longsuffering, patience, because I should of been tossed into the everlasting fires of gehenna Ages ago. But by YAHUAH'S grace, mercy and love am I still here in the flesh to be able to praise the one and only Creator and righteous judge of all. To all ends of the Earth shall his name be esteemed and his loving kindness be acknowledged by all for ever and ever.

    My thoughts about Manasseh 's prayer is that the most high purposefully allowed this prayer into the scriptural body, that we may Offer it unto him when we have truly acknowledged that our own idea of our own righteousness is as Filthy Rags to him! But he is merciful to those of us whom admit our transgressions, and repent! Therefore, Oh Most High Power, whom is above everything that calls itself a power, I humbly offer my own repentant heart to you, asking your forgiveness for my own sins which are without number. And I earnestly seek your tender loving kindness and mercy upon me, even me your lowly servant. Oh, Power of Powers please blot out all of my Transgressions, yes even my own self-righteous prideful heart, according to your will, oh Most High Power. Let it be so.

    It is an excellent self-exposition which reflects the mind of most people. If only we can be this honest today to each other and with God. I see myself in this payer and I pray it as regularly as I can.

    This Is A Very Much Sincere Prayer From The Heart. No Wonder, God Forgave Him Even Though He Had Sinned Greatly.
