Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible

2 Chronicles 5

Verse 1

This chapter contains one important addition only to the narrative of Kings (see the marginal references); namely, the account of the circumstances under which the manifestation of the Divine Presence took place 2 Chronicles 5:11-14.5.13.

Verse 4

The Levites took up the ark - i. e., such of the Levites as were also priests (compare 2 Chronicles 5:7; 1 Kings 8:3).

Verse 9

From the ark - Or, according to a different reading here and according to 1 Kings 8:8, some read, “the ends of the staves were seen from the Holy place.”

There it is unto this day - This should be corrected as in the margin.

Verse 13

Even the house of the Lord - Or, according to another reading (Septuagint), which removes the superfluousness of these words - “The house was filled with a cloud of the glory of the Lord.”
