1 Kings 9:9 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The divine promise to Solomon, that his prayer should be answered, is closely connected with the substance of the prayer; but in our account we have only a brief summary, whereas in the Chronicles it is given more elaborately (vid., 2 Chronicles 7:12-16). "I have sanctified this house which thou hast built, to put my name there." For the expression, see Deuteronomy 12:11. The sanctifying consisted in the fact, that Jehovah put His name in the temple; i.e., that by filling the temple with the cloud which visibly displayed His presence, He consecrated it as the scene of the manifestation of His grace. To Solomon's prayer, "May Thine eyes stand open over this house" (1 Kings 8:29), the Lord replies, giving always more than we ask, "My eyes and my heart shall be there perpetually."
