2 Chronicles 6:9

 

 

`Nevertheless you shall not build the house, but your son who will be born to you, he shall build the house for My name.'

Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Notwithstanding thou shalt not build the house; but thy son which shall come forth out of thy loins, he shall build the house for my name.

But thy son, … — Thus one sows, and another reaps. And let not the wisest of men, think it any disparagement to pursue the good designs which those that went before them had laid.

2 Chronicles 6:9. Thy son, he shall build the house, &c. — Thus one sows and another reaps: and one age begins that which the next brings to perfection. And let not the wisest of men think it any disparagement to them to pursue the good designs which those that went before them had formed, and to build on their foundation.

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(9) Notwithstanding thou shalt not build.—Only thou, thou shalt not build; with stress on the pronoun.

But thy son.—Heb., for thy son; so LXX.; Kings, “but;” and so some MSS. and the Syriac, Vulg., and Arabic here. Otherwise the whole verse is as in Kings.
