Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Samuel 7:19

_ _ is this the manner of man, O Lord God? — that is, is it customary for men to show such condescension to persons so humble as I am? (See 1 Chronicles 17:17.)

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Samuel 7:19

This — Which thou hast already done for me, that thou hast brought me hitherto, to that pitch of honour, and peace, and prosperity, in which through thy favour I now stand. Was small — Though it was more than I deserved, or could expect, yet thou didst not think it enough for thee to give to me. A great while — For many future ages, and indeed to all eternity. Is this, &c. — Do men use to deal so kindly with their inferiors, as thou hast done with me? No: this is the prerogative of divine grace.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Samuel 7:19

And this was yet a small thing in thy sight, O Lord GOD; but thou hast spoken also of thy servant's house for a great while to come. And [is] this the manner of (h) man, O Lord GOD?

(h) Does this not come rather from your free mercy, than from any worthiness that can be in man?
