on the Holy Bible

2 Chronicles 5



Verse 1


The dedicated treasures, 2 Chronicles 5:1. The solemn induction of the ark into the oracle, 2 Chronicles 5:2-10. Glory and praise is sung to God, who appeareth in a cloud, which filled the house, 2 Chronicles 5:11-14.

Or, even (as that particle is oft understood) the silver and the gold, the remainder of those vast sums mentioned 1 Chronicles 22:14.

Verse 2

Of this and the following verses, See Poole "1 Kings 8:1", &c.

Verse 9

When this history was first written: not when it was reviewed by Ezra, who made some additions to it; for after the return from Babylon neither staves nor ark were any more seen or heard of.

Verse 11

According to David’s appointment, 1Ch 24 1Ch 25, which was only for the ordinary service; but in extraordinary solemnities, such as this eminently was they all came together.
