“And Solomon made affinity with Pharaoh king of Egypt, and took Pharaoh's daughter, and brought her into the city of David, until he had made an end of building his own house, and the house of the LORD, and the wall of Jerusalem round about.”
King James Version (KJV)
3:1 Pharaoh - As being a powerful neighbour, whose daughter doubtlesswas first instructed in, and proselyted to the Jewish religion. It seems,this was designed by God to be a type of Christ, calling his church tohimself, and to the true religion, not only out of the Jews, but evenout of the Gentile world. City of David - Into David's palacethere. The wall - Which though in some sort built by David, yetSolomon is here said to build, either because he made it higher, andstronger, in which sense Nebuchadnezzar is said to have builtBabylon, #Dan 4:30|, or because he built another wall besides theformer, for after this time Jerusalem was encompassed with more wallsthan one.
