SEV Biblia, Chapter 20:7 Dios nuestro, Â¿no echaste tú los moradores de esta tierra delante de tu pueblo Israel, y la diste a la simiente de Abraham tu amigo para siempre?
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Chronicles 20:7 Verse 7. Art not thou our God] "Hast not thou, by thy WORD, driven out." -Targum.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 7. Art not thou our God , etc.] In a peculiar sense, not merely as the Creator and Governor of men, but in a covenant relation their covenant God and Father: who didst drive out the inhabitants of the land before thy people Israel ; the seven nations of Canaan, to make way and room for Israel: and gavest it to the seed of Abraham thy friend for ever ? made a deed of gift of it to them, and settled it on them till the coming of the Messiah, and that as an instance of love and friendship to Abraham; and wilt thou therefore suffer it to be taken from his seed?
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-13 - In all dangers, public or personal, our first business should be to seek help from God. Hence the advantage of days for national fastin and prayer. From the first to the last of our seeking the Lord, we mus approach him with humiliation for our sins, trusting only in his merc and power. Jehoshaphat acknowledges the sovereign dominion of the Divine Providence. Lord, exert it on our behalf. Whom should we see to, whom should we trust to for relief, but the God we have chosen an served. Those that use what they have for God, may comfortably hope he will secure it to them. Every true believer is a son of Abraham, friend of God; with such the everlasting covenant is established, to such every promise belongs. We are assured of God's love, by his dwelling in human nature in the person of the Saviour. Jehoshapha mentions the temple, as a token of God's favourable presence. He plead the injustice of his enemies. We may well appeal to God against thos that render us evil for good. Though he had a great army, he said, We have no might without thee; we rely upon thee.
