Bible Commentary for 2 Chronicles 1:10

Wesley's Notes for 2 Chronicles 1:10


1:8 To reign, &c. - Give me the spirit of my father David, that Israel may not suffer by the change. The eminency of those that went before us, and the obligation that lies upon us, to keep and carry on the good work they were engaged in, should quicken our prayers for wisdom and grace, that we may do the work of God in our day, as faithful as they did in theirs.

1:12 Neither &c. - Those that make this world their end, come short of the other, and frequently of this too. But those who make the other world their end, shall not only obtain that, but shalt have as much as is convenient of this world in their way.


Discussion for 2 Chronicles 1:10

  • Judith Ann Crouch on 2 Chronicles 1:10
    In my Life Application version of the Bible the notes express Wisdom is the ability to make good decisions based on proper discernment and judgment. Knowledge, in this verse, refers to the practical know how necessary for handling everyday matters. Wisdom applies knowledge!
  • Dannette Wright on 2 Chronicles 1:10
    According to II Chron. 1:10-12,
    Was King Shalomah the wises man in Yashar'al, He asked for wisdom and knowledge to rule over the people not for himself, because if we are teahing others we must apply the same rules to ourselves as we will do for others.
    Shalom,
    Dannette
