Sutcliffe's Commentary on the Old and New Testaments

2 Chronicles 5



Verses 1-14

2 Chronicles 5:10. Nothing in the ark save the two tables. We hear nothing now of the golden pot of manna, nor of Aaron’s rod which budded. See note on 1 Kings 8:9.

2 Chronicles 5:13. When they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals, then the temple was filled with the cloud of the divine presence, and when the prophet Iddo had invoked the Lord with sacred song, aided by the sweet notes of the minstrel, the Lord gave water to the perishing army. Music in the hands of holy men, aids the soul in its elevation to God.

2 Chronicles 5:14. The priests could not stand to minister. So Moses “was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.” Exodus 40:35.
