Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Chronicles 6:42

_ _ turn not away the face of thine anointed — that is, of me, who by Thy promise and appointment have been installed as king and ruler of Israel. The words are equivalent in meaning to this: Do not reject my present petitions; do not send me from Thy throne of grace dejected in countenance and disappointed in heart.

_ _ remember the mercies of David thy servant — that is, the mercies promised to David, and in consideration of that promise, hear and answer my prayer (compare Psalms 132:10).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 6:12-42.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Chronicles 6:42

Thine anointed — Of me, who by thy command was anointed the king and ruler of thy people: do not deny my requests, nor send me from the throne of thy grace with a dejected countenance. The mercies — Those which thou hast promised to David and to his house for ever. And thus may we plead, with an eye to Christ, who is called David, Hosea 3:5. Lord, remember his merits, and accept of us, on the account of them. Remember the promises of the everlasting covenant, which are called the sure mercies of David, Isaiah 55:3. This must be all our desire, all our hope, all our prayer, and all our plea; for it is all our salvation.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Chronicles 6:42

O LORD God, turn not away the face of (n) thine anointed: remember the mercies of David thy servant.
