2 Chronicles 35:4 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

And now, as all appears to be well established, the ark is ordered to be put into its own place.

I will suppose, dear friends, that in the providence of God you are in your place, and that by the direction of God's Spirit you have also sought and found the precise form of usefulness in which you ought to exercise yourself. To-night it shall not be my business to arrange you; but assuming that it is well for you to keep where you are,

Importance in Luke's History of the Story of the Birth of Christ
IT needs no proof that Luke attached the highest importance to this part of his narrative.

The elaboration and detail of the first two chapters of the Gospel form a sufficient proof that Luke recognized
