And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.









(12) He.--The emphatic word.

Build me.--Samuel, "for my name." (See 1Kings 8:29; 1Kings 9:3.)

His throne.--Samuel, "throne of his kingdom"--a characteristic abridgment.

Verses 12-14. - The reference of these promises was also to Solomon, and to him they were faithfully fulfilled. They were early perceived to be prophecies also, and of the highest significance and application (Psalm 89:26-37; Isaiah 9:7; Isaiah 55:3, 4; Jeremiah 23:5, 6; Jeremiah 33:17-21; Zechariah 6:12, 13; Hebrews 1:5; Hebrews 3:6). The alternative of the "son who commits iniquity" (2 Samuel 7:14) is omitted from the middle of our thirteenth verse. The latter half of ver. 13 manifestly purports to say, "I will not take my mercy away from Solomon, as I did take it away from Saul." The close of our fourteenth verse is in the parallel place (2 Samuel 7:16) distinctly referred to David, with the use of the second person possessive pronoun.
