2 Chronicles 33:20

Ver. 20-25. So Manasseh slept with his fathers, and they buried him
in his own house
That is, in the garden of his house, (See Gill on 2 Kings 21:18); there; to which may be added, that the Jews F19 in later times buried in a garden; though it was the custom of the ancients, both Greeks F20 and Romans F21, to bury the dead in their own houses; hence sprung the worship of the Lares and Penates, the household gods: from hence to the end of the chapter is the same with ( 2 Kings 21:18-26 ) .
