John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Chronicles 20:9

If when evil cometh upon us
Any calamity, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine,
God's four sore judgments, if by "judgment" is meant wild beasts: we stand before this house;
in the court before the holy place, and holy of holies: and in thy presence, for thy name is in this house;
called upon in it, and it was called by his name, and in which he dwelt: and cry unto thee in our affliction;
as Solomon prayed at the dedication of it: then thou wilt hear and help;
as the Lord promised, see ( 1 Kings 8:33 1 Kings 8:37 ) ( 9:3 ) .
