1 Kings 8:22 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The promise of God, to choose Jerusalem as the place for the temple and David as prince, is taken freely from 2 Samuel 7:7-8. In 2 Chronicles 6:6, before "I chose David," we find "and I chose Jerusalem, that my name might be there;" so that the affirmation answers more precisely to the preceding negation, whereas in the account before us this middle term is omitted.
