SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:1 Â¶ Y cuando Salomón acabó de orar, el fuego descendió de los cielos, y consumió el holocausto y las víctimas; y la gloria del SEÑOR llenó la Casa.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Chronicles 7:1 Verse 1. The fire came down] The cloud had come down before, now the fire consumes the sacrifice, showing that both the house and the sacrifices were accepted by the Lord.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. Now when Solomon had made an end of praying , etc.] The prayer recorded in the preceding chapter: the fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices ; which was the token God gave of his acceptance of them, of which there had been several instances before, ( Leviticus 9:24), ( Kings 18:38 1 Chronicles 21:26), and the glory of the Lord filled the house ; the glory of the Shechinah of the Lord, as the Targum, (see 1 Kings 8:11).
Matthew Henry Commentary God's answer to Solomon's prayer.
--God gave a gracious answer to Solomon's prayer. The mercies of God to sinners are made known in a manner well suited to impress all wh receive them, with his majesty and holiness. The people worshipped an praised God. When he manifests himself as a consuming Fire to sinners his people can rejoice in him as their Light. Nay, they had reason to say, that God was good in this. It is of the Lord's mercies we are no consumed, but the sacrifice in our stead, for which we should be very thankful. And whoever beholds with true faith, the Saviour agonizin and dying for man's sin, will, by that view, find his godly sorro enlarged, his hatred of sin increased, his soul made more watchful, an his life more holy. Solomon prosperously effected all he designed, for adorning both God's house and his own. Those who begin with the servic of God, are likely to go on successfully in their own affairs. It wa Solomon's praise, that what he undertook, he went through with; it wa by the grace of God that he prospered in it. Let us then stand in awe and sin not. Let us fear the Lord's displeasure, hope in his mercy, an walk in his commandments __________________________________________________________________
