Wesley's Explanatory Notes

And said, O LORD God of Israel, there is no God like thee in the heaven, nor in the earth; which keepest covenant, and shewest mercy unto thy servants, that walk before thee with all their hearts:

O Lord, … — By this prayer the temple of Solomon is made a figure of Christ, the great Mediator thro' whom we are to offer up all our prayers, and to expect all God's favours, and to whom we are to have an eye in everything wherein we have to do with God.

Joseph Benson's Commentary of the Old and New Testaments

2 Chronicles 6:14. O Lord God of Israel, &c. — Solomon, in the foregoing verses, had signed and sealed, so to speak, the deed of dedication, by which the temple was appropriated to the honour and service of God. Now here in the prayer by which it was, as it were, consecrated, it is made a figure of Christ, the great Mediator, through whom we are to offer up all our prayers, and to expect all God’s favours, and to whom we are to have an eye in every thing wherein we have to do with God.

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(14) In the heaven nor in the earth.—Abridged from “in the heaven above, and upon the earth beneath” (Kings). Syriac, “Thou art the Lord that sittest in heaven above, and Thy will (pl.) is done on earth beneath;” apparently a curious reminiscence of the Lord’s Prayer. The Assyrians also spoke of their gods as “without an equal” (sânina la isû, “a rival he has not”).

Which keepest covenant and shewest mercy.—Literally, keeping the covenant and the mercy; i.e., the covenanted mercy. (Comp. Isaiah 55:3.)

With thy servant.—Heb., for; so in 2 Chronicles 6:16. (The verse is word for word as in Kings.)

And spakest with thy mouth. . . .—2 Chronicles 6:4.
