EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)
8:12-21 Solomon encouraged the priests, who were much astonished at the dark cloud. The dark dispensations of Providence should quicken us in fleeing for refuge to the hope of the gospel. Nothing can more reconcile us to them, than to consider what God has said, and to compare his word and works together. Whatever good we do, we must look on it as the performance of God's promise to us, not of our promises to him.The marginal reference completes the sense of this verse here. The passage is in accordance with archaic modes of speech, and is probably the more verbally accurate of the two. 14. the king turned his face about—From the temple, where he had been watching the movement of the mystic cloud, and while the people were standing, partly as the attitude of devotion, partly out of respect to royalty, the king gave a fervent expression of praise to God for the fulfilment of His promise (2Sa 7:6-16). No text from Poole on this verse.

Nevertheless, thou shall not build the house,.... Which is implied in the question in 2 Samuel 7:5.

but thy son that shall come forth out of thy loins, he shall build the house unto my name; which is expressed in 2 Samuel 7:12.

Nevertheless thou shalt not build the house; but thy son that shall come forth out of thy loins, he shall build the house unto my name.
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)
19. thou shalt not build the house] It was not necessary for Solomon to add the reasons given in 1 Chronicles 22:8, ‘Thou hast shed blood abundantly and hast made great wars.’

Verse 19. - Nevertheless thou shalt not build the house [Wordsworth observes that it was filial reverence prevented Solomon's mentioning the cause of this prohibition which, however, is mentioned with appropriate humility by David himself (1 Chronicles 22:8) ]; but thy son that shall come forth out of thy loins, he shall build the house unto my name. [2 Samuel 7:11, 12. The recurrence of "the name" of the Lord is to be noticed (see vers. 16, 17, 18, 29, 48, etc.) The name of God is the expression to man of Has nature, attributes, etc.] 1 Kings 8:19David's intention to build the temple, and the answer of God that his son was to execute this work, are so far copied from 2 Samuel 7:2, 2 Samuel 7:12-13, that God approves the intention of David as such. הטיבת, "Thou didst well that it was in thy mind."
