Bible Commentary for 1 Chronicles 28:3

Wesley's Notes for 1 Chronicles 28:3


28:1 And David assembled, &c. - A great deal of business David haddone in his day. And the nearer he comes to his end, the more busy he is,still endeavouring to do his work with all his might. He is now recoveredfrom the weakness mentioned #1Kings 1:1|. He therefore improves hisrecovery, as giving him an opportunity of doing God and his country alittle more service.

28:2 Stood - Out of reverence to God and respect to this great andhonourable assembly. Brethren - So he calls the princes and chiefrulers, both because they had a share with him, though under him in thegovernment; and in compliance with the Divine command, that the kingshould not be lifted up above his brethren; #Deut 17:20|.Of rest - A place where it might be fixed, and no more removed from placeto place, as it had been. Foot - stool - An house for the ark is herestyled an house for the foot - stool of our God. Heaven is his throne:the earth and the most magnificent temples thereon are but his foot - stool.So much difference is there between the manifestations of his glory, in theupper and in the lower world!
