Does anyone know the reference used for the Prayer of Manasseh when it is placed at the end of 2 Chronicles? I can find it as part of Odes or as a standalone book. BTW - it appears in the original Luther, Geneva, Matthews, Authorized, and Douay-Rheims - standalone in all IIRC,

Shalom MJ!

I think the default option in Logos is to tag the Prayer of Manasseh as a standalone book.

In my library there are two copies of the Russian Synodal Bible. Only in one of them is the Prayer of Manasseh tagged as 2 Chronicles 37:

(note: verse 2 in the left edition corresponds to verses 2-5 in the edition on the right)

Thank you!! I don't read Russian so it would have taken me forever to find this.
