Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Chronicles 21:26

_ _ David built there an altar — He went in procession with his leading men from the royal palace, down Mount Zion, and through the intervening city. Although he had plenty of space on his own property, he was commanded, under peremptory direction, to go a considerable distance from his home, up Mount Moriah, to erect an altar on premises which he had to buy. It was on or close to the spot where Abraham had offered up Isaac.

_ _ answered him by fire from heaven — (See Leviticus 9:24; 1 Kings 18:21-23; 2 Kings 1:12; 2 Chronicles 7:1).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Chronicles 21:18-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Chronicles 21:26

By fire — Heb. by fire sent from heaven: which was the sign of God's acceptance. The fire that might justly have fastened on the sinner, fastened upon the sacrifice and consumed it. Thus Christ was made sin and a curse for us, and it pleased the Lord to bruise him, that through him God might be to us, not a consuming fire, but a reconciled Father.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Chronicles 21:26

And David built there an altar unto the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings, and called upon the LORD; and he (n) answered him from heaven by fire upon the altar of burnt offering.

(n) God declared that he heard his request, in that he sent down fire from heaven for they could use no fire in sacrifice but that which was reserved still upon the altar, (Leviticus 6:13) and came down from heaven, (Leviticus 9:24) as appeared by the punishment of Nadab and Abihu, (Leviticus 10:1).
