Bible Commentary for 1 Chronicles 22:6

Wesley's Notes for 1 Chronicles 22:6


22:5 Prepared, &c. - And good reason, because it was intended for thehonour of the great God, and was to be a type of Christ, in whom allfulness dwells, and in whom are hid all treasures.

22:8 Shed blood - Not that wars are simply unlawful, but to teach usthat the church (whereof the temple was an illustrious type) should bebuilt by Christ, the prince of peace, #Isa 9:6|, and that it shouldbe gathered and built up, not by might or power but by God'sspirit, #Zech 4:6|, and by the preaching the Gospel of peace.David therefore was less fit for that service, than one who had not beencalled to such bloody work. Likewise by setting him aside for this reason,God shewed how precious human life is to him.
