Sutcliffe's Commentary on the Old and New Testaments

2 Chronicles 8

Verses 1-18

2 Chronicles 8:4 . Tadmor, Palmyra. 1 Kings 9:18. This city rose to be capital of a province, which sent eighty thousand men to join the Assyrian army. Its ruins exhibit a wall eleven miles in circumference.

2 Chronicles 8:11 . My wife shall not dwell in the house of David because the places are holy. The Targum calls this princess Bithiah, daughter of Pharaoh. She was a heathen, and appears to have retained her superstitions. She wanted the heart of Ruth, to say, “Thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God!” No idolatrous person, however exalted, could be suffered to dwell in the holy places.
