Daniel 9:5 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible

1 Kings 8:48
if they return to You with all their heart and with all their soul in the land of their enemies who have taken them captive, and pray to You toward their land which You have given to their fathers, the city which You have chosen, and the house which I have built for Your name;
"We have acted very corruptly against You and have not kept the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the ordinances which You commanded Your servant Moses.
"However, You are just in all that has come upon us; For You have dealt faithfully, but we have acted wickedly.
We have sinned like our fathers, We have committed iniquity, we have behaved wickedly.
I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek Your servant, For I do not forget Your commandments.
All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him.
