Bible Commentary for Acts 7:47

Wesley's Notes for Acts 7:47


7:45 Which our fathers having received - From their ancestors; brought into the possession of the Gentiles - Into the land which the Gentiles possessed before. So that God's favour is not a necessary consequence of inhabiting this land. All along St. Stephen intimates two things: 1. That God always loved good men in every land: 2. That he never loved bad men even in this. #Josh 3:14|.

7:46 Who petitioned to find a habitation for the God of Jacob - But he did not obtain his petition: for God remained without any temple till Solomon built him a house. Observe how wisely the word is chosen with respect to what follows.

7:48 Yet the Most High inhabiteth not temples made with hands - As Solomon declared at the very dedication of the temple, #1Ki 8:27|. The Most High - Whom as such no building can contain. #Isaiah 66:1|.

7:49 What is the place of my rest? - Have I need to rest?
