Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Chronicles 33:17

_ _ the people did sacrifice still in the high places, yet unto the Lord their God only — Here it appears that the worship on high places, though it originated in a great measure from the practice of heathenism, and too often led to it, did not necessarily imply idolatry.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 33:11-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Chronicles 33:17

Still — Manasseh could not carry the reformation so far as he had carried the corruption. It is an easy thing to debauch men's manners; but not so easy to reform them again.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Chronicles 33:17

Nevertheless the people did sacrifice still in the high places, [yet] unto the (h) LORD their God only.

(h) Thus by ignorance they were deceived, thinking it nothing to keep the altars, so that they worshipped God: but it is idolatry to worship God any other way than he has appointed.
