2 Chronicles Chapter 2

2 Chronicles 2:2
2:2 And Solomon told out threescore and ten thousand men to bear
    burdens, and fourscore thousand to hew in the mountain, and
    three thousand and {a} six hundred to oversee them.

    (a) Which is to be understood of all sorts of officers and
        overseers: for else the chief officers were but 3300 as
        in 1 Kings 5:16.

2 Chronicles 2:6
2:6 But who is able to build him an house, seeing the heaven and
    heaven of heavens cannot contain him? who [am] I then, that
    I should build him an house, save only to burn {b} sacrifice
    before him?

    (b) That is, to do the service which he has commanded,
        signifying that no one is able to honour and serve God
        in the perfection his majesty deserves.

2 Chronicles 2:8
2:8 Send me also cedar trees, fir trees, and {c} algum trees,
    out of Lebanon: for I know that thy servants can skill to
    cut timber in Lebanon; and, behold, my servants [shall be]
    with thy servants,

    (c) Some take it for Brazil, or the wood called Ebenum,
        others for coral.

2 Chronicles 2:10
2:10 And, behold, I will give to thy servants, the hewers that
     cut timber, twenty thousand measures of beaten wheat, and
     twenty thousand measures of barley, and twenty thousand
     baths of wine, and twenty {d} thousand baths of oil.

     (d) Of "bath" read 1 Kings 7:26. It is also called ephah,
         but an ephah measures dry things as a bath is a measure
         for liquids.

2 Chronicles 2:12
2:12 Huram said moreover, Blessed [be] the LORD God of Israel,
     that made heaven and earth, who hath given to David the
     king a {e} wise son, endued with prudence and
     understanding, that might build an house for the LORD, and
     an house for his kingdom.

     (e) The very heavens confessed that it was a singular gift
         of God when he gave to any nation a king that was wise
         and of understanding, though it appears that this Hiram
         had the true knowledge of God.

2 Chronicles 2:14
2:14 The son of a woman of the {f} daughters of Dan, and his
     father [was] a man of Tyre, skilful to work in gold, and in
     silver, in brass, in iron, in stone, and in timber, in
     purple, in blue, and in fine linen, and in crimson; also to
     grave any manner of graving, and to find out every device
     which shall be put to him, with thy cunning men, and with
     the cunning men of my lord David thy father.

     (f) It is also written that she was of the tribe of
         Naphtali, 1 Kings 7:14 which may be understood that
         by reason of the confusion of tribes which then began
         to be, they married in various tribes so that by her
         father she might be of Dan and by her mother of
         Naphtali.
