Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Samuel 7:7

In all [the places] wherein I have walked with all the children of Israel spake I a (c) word with any of the tribes of Israel, whom I commanded to feed my people Israel, saying, Why build ye not me an house of cedar?

(c) Concerning building a house: meaning without God's express word, nothing should be attempted.

walked:

Leviticus 26:11-12 And I will set my tabernacle among you: and my soul shall not abhor you. ... And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people.

any of the tribes:

1 Chronicles 17:6 Wheresoever I have walked with all Israel, spake I a word to any of the judges of Israel, whom I commanded to feed my people, saying, Why have ye not built me an house of cedars?
, any of the judges, Instead of שׁבטי, shivtey, "tribes," we should probably read, with Houbigant, Drs. Waterland and A. Clarke, and others, שׁפטי, shophtey, "judges;" which is the reading in the parallel passage. Indeed there is but one letter of difference between them, and letters which might be easily mistaken for each other; the apex under the upper stroke of the פ, pay, being the only mark to distinguish it from the ב, baith. Compare with
2 Samuel 7:11 And as since the time that I commanded judges [to be] over my people Israel, and have caused thee to rest from all thine enemies. Also the LORD telleth thee that he will make thee an house.
