    King James Bible - 2 Chronicles 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 sacrifice before him?

    World English Bible

    But who is able to build him a house, since heaven and the heaven of heavens can't contain him? who am I then, that I should build him a house, except just to burn
    incense before him?

    Douay-Rheims - 2 Chronicles 2:6

    Who then can be able to build him a worthy house? if heaven, and the heavens of heavens cannot contain him: who am I that I should be able to build him a house? but to this end only, that
    incense may be burnt before him.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    But who is able to build him a house, seeing the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain him? who am I then that I should build him a house, save only to burn sacrifice before him?

    Original Hebrew

    ומי
    4310  יעצר 6113  כח 3581  לבנות 1129 לו  בית 1004  כי 3588  השׁמים 8064 ושׁמי 8064 השׁמים 8064 לא 3808 יכלכלהו 3557 ומי 4310 אני 589 אשׁר 834 אבנה 1129 לו  בית 1004  כי 3588  אם 518  להקטיר 6999 לפניו׃ 6440

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:6

    Mas ¿quién será tan poderoso que le edifique Casa? Los cielos y los cielos de los cielos no le pueden comprender; ¿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. Ful instructions enable us to go about our work with certainty and to proceed therein with comfort. Blessed be God, the Scriptures are enoug to render the man of God thoroughly furnished for every good work. Le us search the Scriptures daily, beseeching the Lord to enable us to understand, believe, and obey his word, that our work and our way ma be made plain, and that all may be begun, continued, and ended in him Beholding God, in Christ, his true Temple, more glorious than that of Solomon's, may we become a spiritual house, a habitation of God throug the Spirit __________________________________________________________________
