Acts 7:46 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Desired (ᾐτήσατο)

More correctly, asked: through Nathan. See 2 Samuel 7:2.

Tabernacle (σκήνωμα)

It was not a tabernacle or tent which David proposed to build, but a house. See 2 Samuel 7:2. Rev., rightly, habitation. Compare οἶκον, a house, Acts 7:47, and 2 Chronicles 6:18.
