(13) For Solomon had made a brasen scaffold.--This verse is not in Kings. But it may once have followed 1Kings 8:22. At least, marks of the chronicler's individual style are not apparent in it.

Scaffold.--Literally, pan (kiyor; see 2Chronicles 4:6). The "scaffold" looked like a "laver" turned upside down, and was doubtless hollow underneath. (Comp. Nehemiah 9:4 for an analogous structure.)

Kneeled down upon his knees, and spread forth his hands.--An attitude of prayer which may be seen figured upon the monuments of ancient Egypt.

Toward heaven (ha-sh?m??y'm?h).--The chronicler has used the exact form for the less precise hash?m??ayim of 1Kings 8:22.

Verse 13. - A brazen scaffold. The Hebrew word is כִּיּור. The word occurs twenty-one times. It is translated, in the Authorized Version, "laver" eighteen times, once "pan" (1 Samuel 2:14), once "hearth" (Zechariah 12:6), and once "scaffold," here. The meaning evidently is that the stand was in some sort basin-shaped. 6:1-42 Solomon's prayer at the dedication of the temple. - The order of Solomon's prayer is to be observed. First and chiefly, he prays for repentance and forgiveness, which is the chief blessing, and the only solid foundation of other mercies: he then prays for temporal mercies; thereby teaching us what things to mind and desire most in our prayers. This also Christ hath taught us in his perfect pattern and form of prayer, where there is but one prayer for outward, and all the rest are for spiritual blessings. The temple typified the human nature of Christ, in whom dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. The ark typified his obedience and sufferings, by which repenting sinners have access to a reconciled God, and communion with him. Jehovah has made our nature his resting-place for ever, in the person of Emmanuel, and through him he dwells with, and delights in his church of redeemed sinners. May our hearts become his resting-place; may Christ dwell therein by faith, consecrating them as his temples, and shedding abroad his love therein. May the Father look upon us in and through his Anointed; and may he remember and bless us in all things, according to his mercy to sinners, in and through Christ.
