Verse-by-Verse Bible Commentary

2 Chronicles 6:33

 

 

then hear from heaven, from Your dwelling place, and do according to all for which the foreigner calls to You, in order that all the peoples of the earth may know Your name, and fear You as do Your people Israel, and that they may know that this house which I have built is called by Your name.

Joseph Benson's Commentary of the Old and New Testaments

2 Chronicles 6:33. May know that this house is called by thy name — That it is truly the house of the Almighty Jehovah. Solomon knew that the goodness of God was so immense, that the extending it, how much soever, toward other people, neither would nor could lessen the exercise of it toward Israel.

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(33) Then.—(And) Kings omits; but compare 2 Chronicles 6:30; 2 Chronicles 6:27; 2 Chronicles 6:23, which have the particle. So also some MSS., as well as the LXX., and Syriac, of Kings.

People.—The peoples.

And fear thee.—Better without and; as in Kings, “that they may fear thee.” So Syriac.
