then hear in heaven and forgive the sin of Your servants and Your people Israel, indeed, teach them the good way in which they should walk. And send rain on Your land which You have given to Your people for an inheritance.

Joseph Benson's Commentary of the Old and New Testaments

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(27) Then hear thou from heaven.—Rather, (to) heaven or (in) heaven, as in Kings. (Comp. Note on 2 Chronicles 6:23.) The versions read “from heaven.”

When thou . . . way.—For thou pointest them to the good way. A construction only found here. Comp. Psalms 27:11, where we see the simple accusation as in Kings, which is probably right here also, ’el (to) being an error for ’eth (so the versions). Making this change, the verse coincides with 1 Kings 8:36.
