Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Chronicles 7:3

_ _ all the children of Israel ... bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement — This form of prostration (that of lying on one’s knees with the forehead touching the earth), is the manner in which the Hebrews, and Orientals in general, express the most profound sentiments of reverence and humility. The courts of the temple were densely crowded on the occasion, and the immense multitude threw themselves on the ground. What led the Israelites suddenly to assume that prostrate attitude on the occasion referred to, was the spectacle of the symbolical cloud slowly and majestically descending upon the temple, and then entering it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 7:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Chronicles 7:3

With their faces — Thus expressing their awful dread of the Divine Majesty, their chearful submission to the Divine authority, and the sense they had of their utter unworthiness to enter into his presence. Upon — The cloud first came down upon the house, and then entered into the house, and was seen both within it by the priests, and without it by the people.
