Verse-by-Verse Bible Commentary

2 Chronicles 6:40

 

 

"Now, O my God, I pray, let Your eyes be open and Your ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place.

Joseph Benson's Commentary of the Old and New Testaments

2 Chronicles 6:40. Now, my God, &c. — Solomon sums up all in beseeching God, that the prayers which should be presented there, for any blessing, of what sort soever it was, might be graciously accepted and answered by him.

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(40-42) THE PERORATION.

(40) Let, I beseech thee, thine eyes be open.—Comp. 2 Chronicles 6:20, supr., and 2 Chronicles 7:15; also 1 Kings 8:52.

And let thine ears be attent.—Attentive, listening (qas‘s‘ûbôth). The same phrase recurs (2 Chronicles 7:15), which is, in fact, a repetition of the whole verse in the shape of a Divine promise, Qas‘s‘ûbôth occurs, besides, only in the late Psalms 130:2.

The prayer that is made in this place.—See margin. “The prayer of this place” is a strange phrase, only occurring here and in 2 Chronicles 7:15.
