Bible Commentary for 1 Kings 3:17

Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 3:17


3:15 A dream - Not a vain dream, wherewith men are commonly deluded;but a divine dream, assuring him of the thing: which he knew, by a divineimpression after he was awakened: and by the vast alteration which hepresently found within himself in point of wisdom and knowledge.The ark - Which was there in the city of David, #2Sam 6:17|,before which he presented himself in a way of holy adoration.Burnt offerings - Chiefly for the expiation of his and his peoples sin,through the blood of Christ, manifestly signified in these sacrifices.Peace offerings - Solemnly to praise God for all his mercies, andespecially for giving him quiet possession of the kingdom, and for hisglorious appearance to him in the dream, and for the promise therein madeto him, and the actual accomplishment of it.

3:16 Harlots - Or, victuallers: for the Hebrew words signifiesboth. Yet that they are unmarried persons, seems probable, both becausethere is no mention of any husbands, whose office it was, if there wereany such, to contest for their wives; and because they lived a solitarylife in one house.

3:19 Overlaid it - And so smothered it: which she justly conjectures,because there were evidences of that kind of death, but no appearance ofany other cause thereof.
