Barnes' Notes on the Whole BibleBarnes' Notes

Verse 1

Compare throughout 2 Samuel 7:0 and the notes found there.

Verse 13

My son - The minatory clause which occurs after this in Samuel is here omitted, because the writer is not about to record the sins of Solomon, or the sufferings 1 Kings 11:9-40 which he thereby brought upon himself.

Verse 17

Hast regarded me ... - i. e., “Thou hast elevated me above other men, by making my kingdom perpetual, regarding me as if I were a man of high degree.” Compare the 2 Samuel 7:19 note.

Verse 18

For the honor of thy servant - i. e., “for the honor which Thou hast done for Thy servant.” The Septuagint omits “Thy servant,” and renders it: “What can David say more to Thee to glorify Thee? For Thou knowest,” etc.

Verse 24

Some prefer, “And let Thy name be established and magnified forever:” i. e., “Let not only Thy promise stand firm, but let Thy Name also stand firm (continue to be held in honor) and be magnified,” etc.

Verse 27

The marginal rendering is preferable.
