Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Chronicles 28:2

_ _ Hear me, my brethren, and my people — This was the style of address becoming a constitutional king of Israel (Deuteronomy 17:20; 1 Samuel 30:23; 2 Samuel 5:1).

_ _ I had in mine heart — I proposed, or designed.

_ _ to build an house of rest — a solid and permanent temple.

_ _ for the footstool of our God — God seated between the cherubim, at the two extremities of the ark, might be said to be enthroned in His glory, and the coverlet of the ark to be His footstool.

_ _ and had made ready for the building — The immense treasures which David had amassed and the elaborate preparations he had made, would have been amply sufficient for the erection of the temple of which he presented the model to Solomon.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Chronicles 28:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Chronicles 28:2

Stood — Out of reverence to God and respect to this great and honourable assembly. Brethren — So he calls the princes and chief rulers, both because they had a share with him, though under him in the government; and in compliance with the Divine command, that the king should not be lifted up above his brethren; Deuteronomy 17:20. Of rest — A place where it might be fixed, and no more removed from place to place, as it had been. Foot — stool — An house for the ark is here styled an house for the foot — stool of our God. Heaven is his throne: the earth and the most magnificent temples thereon are but his foot — stool. So much difference is there between the manifestations of his glory, in the upper and in the lower world!
