who shall be a man of rest, and I will give him rest from all his
enemies round about:
and so should be at leisure for such a work, and his people enjoy great prosperity and riches, and so be capable of contributing largely and liberally to it:
for his name shall be Solomon;
which signifies peace, and is one of the six persons that had their names given them before they were born, as the Jews observe F17:
and I will give peace and quietness unto Israel in his days;
and so a proper time to begin and carry on such a work; of the fulfilment of this prophecy, see ( 1 Kings 4:24 1 Kings 4:25 ) ( 1 Kings 5:3 1 Kings 5:4 ) .
F17 Pirke Eliezer, c. 32.
