1 Kings 8:31 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The expression "and now" (ועתּה) introduces the prayer for the further fulfilment of the promise, never to allow a successor upon the throne to be wanting to David, in the same conditional form in which David had uttered the hope in 1 Kings 2:4, and in which the Lord had renewed the promise to Solomon during the building of the temple (1 Kings 6:12-13). In על־כּסּא ישׁב מלּפני, instead of כּסּא מעל in 1 Kings 2:4, the divine rejection is more distinctly indicated.
