Acts 2:41

(36) And Hezekiah rejoiced.--So of David and his people (1Chronicles 29:9; 1Chronicles 29:22). (Comp. also 2Chronicles 7:10.)

That God had prepared.--In the Hebrew the article is used instead of the relative: a construction characteristic of the chronicler (1Chronicles 26:28). Render: "And Hezekiah rejoiced . . . over that which God had set in order for the people," viz., the long-suspended ordinances of the Temple worship (1Chronicles 12:39; 1Chronicles 15:1). Perhaps, however, l?'?m, "for the people," is the mere accusative after the verb, and the sense is "rejoiced because God had prepared the people" (2Samuel 3:30).

For the thing . . . suddenly.--Literally, for on a sudden happened the matter. "On a sudden," be-pith'om, here only; elsewhere simply pith'om. Comp. the synonymous rega' and be-rega' (Psalm 6:10; Job 21:13). The hand of God was seen in the speed with which the revolution was effected, and the sudden turn of the princes and people from indifference to glad alacrity. (Comp. 2Chronicles 30:12.)

Verse 36. - (Comp. Proverbs 16:1.)
