HAYDOCK CATHOLIC BIBLE COMMENTARY ON THE OLD TESTAMENT



2 PARALIPOMENON 1

 

CHAPTER I.

 

Ver. 5.  Sought it: went (M.) to offer sacrifice, (T.) in the second year of his reign, A.C. 1013.

 

Ver. 6.  Victims.  Heb. "holocausts," either with his own hand, or by the ministry of the priests.  See 1 K. xiii. 12.  C.

 

Ver. 7.  Night, after the victims had been offered.  On this occasion, Solomon made this prayer, and was heard.  3 K. iii. 5.  C.

 

Ver. 10.  People, as a king ought to do.  M.

 

Ver. 13.  Before.  Heb. and Sept. "from before the tabernacle," which was at Gabaon.  there was another at Jerusalem, where (H.) Solomon rendered homage to the Lord.  C.

 

Ver. 14.  Chariots.  See 3 K. iv. 26.  No king of Israel kept such a multitude of horses.  C.

 

Ver. 15.  Sycamores are trees of small value, and not good for building.  T.

 

Ver. 16.  Coa may signify either some city, (Mariana) or an "exporium," where things are sold, as kuch means "a collection."  T.  3 K. x. 28.  Neglecting the points of the Masorets, we may well understand Coa, a city of Egypt, or an island of the Mediterranean.  The Masorets read Mikve, instead of Micoa.  D.
