SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:6 Mas Â¿quién será tan poderoso que le edifique Casa? Los cielos y los cielos de los cielos no le pueden comprender; Â¿quién pues soy yo, para que le edifique Casa, sino para quemar incienso delante de él?
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Chronicles 2:6 Verse 6. Seeing the heaven and heaven of heavens] "For the lower heavens, the middle heavens, and the upper heavens cannot contain him, seeing he sustains all things by the arm of his power. Heaven is the throne of his glory, the earth his footstool; the deep, and the whole world, are sustained by the spirit of his Word, [ hyrmym jwrb beruach meqmereih.] Who am I, then, that I should build him a house?" -Targum.
Save only to burn sacrifice] It is not under the hope that the house shall be able to contain him, but merely for the purpose of burning incense to him, and offering him sacrifice, that I have erected it.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 6. But who is able to build him an house , etc.] Suitable to the greatness of his majesty, especially as he dwells not in temples made with hands: seeing the heaven, and heaven of heavens, cannot contain him ? (see Kings 8:27), who am I then, that I should build him an house, save only to burn sacrifice before him ? since God was an immense and infinite Being, be would have Hiram to understand that he had no thought of building an house, in which he could be circumscribed and contained, only a place in which he might be worshipped, and sacrifices offered to him.
Matthew Henry Commentary The building of the temple.
--There is a more particular account of the building of the temple in 1Ki 6. It must be in the place David had prepared, not only which he had purchased, but which he had fixed on by Divine direction.
