2 Samuel 7:23 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

"According to all these words ... did Nathan speak unto David," i.e., he related the whole to David, just as God had addressed it to him in the night. The clause in apposition, "according to all this vision," merely introduces a more minute definition of the peculiar form of the revelation. God spoke to Nathan in a vision which he had in the night, i.e., not in a dream, but in a waking condition, and during the night; for חזּיון equals חזון is constantly distinguished from חלום, a revelation in a dream.
