HAYDOCK CATHOLIC BIBLE COMMENTARY ON THE OLD TESTAMENT



2 PARALIPOMENON 5

 

CHAPTER V.

 

Ver. 1.  God, under the care of Selemith.  See 1 Par. xxvi. 26.  C.

 

Ver. 2.  Ark.  Another was not made, as that was most sacred and excellent.  W.

 

Ver. 3.  Day, the eighth.  3 K. viii. 2.

 

Ver. 4.  Levites, with the priests alternately; (ibid.) or the latter were all Levites, (C.) though higher in dignity, in the same manner as our bishops are priests.

 

Ver. 5.  With the.  "And" is omitted in Heb. but supplied by Prot. &c. from 3 K.  H.

 

Ver. 9.  Oracle, pushing out the veil, (H.) in the tabernacle of Moses, but not in the temple, which was of larger dimensions.  C. --- But if.  Heb. "but they were not seen without.  And there it is till this day."

 

Ver. 10.  Ark.  See 3 K. viii. 9.  H. --- The other things which had been placed in, or at least on the side of the ark, were now removed to the treasury rooms.  T.

 

Ver. 11.  Sanctified; free from all legal impediments to offer sacrifice.  H. --- Divided.  Heb. "observed."  T. --- Prot. "and they did not then wait by course," which was the case also with the singers, &c. on this solemn occasion; as the number regulated by David for each week, would  not have been sufficient.  H. --- The regulation had not yet been reduced to practice.  M.  C. --- As yet (D.) at that time, is omitted (H.) by the Sept. (D.) and Heb.

 

Ver. 12.  Linen, or "robes of silk."  Prot. "white linen."  H.

 

Ver. 14.  Cloud.  See 3 K. viii. 10.  M. --- It is called the glory of the Lord, because its appearance was luminous and awful, being a symbol of the divine presence.  H.
