Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 9:8

_ _ this house, which is high — “high,” either in point of situation, for it was built on a hill, and therefore conspicuous to every beholder; or “high” in respect to privilege, honor, and renown; or this “house of the Most High,” notwithstanding all its beauty and magnificence, shall be destroyed, and remain in such a state of ruin and degradation as to be a striking monument of the just judgment of God. The record of this second vision, in which were rehearsed the conditions of God’s covenant with Solomon and the consequences of breaking them, is inserted here as a proper introduction to the narrative about to be given of this king’s commercial enterprises and ambitious desire for worldly glory; for this king, by encouraging an influx of foreign people and a taste for foreign luxuries, rapidly corrupted his own mind and that of this subjects, so that they turned from following God, they and their children (1 Kings 9:6).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 9:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 9:8

High — Glorious and renowned. Astonished — At its unexpected and wonderful ruin. Hiss — By way of contempt and derision.
