1 Kings 8:59

1 Kings 8:59

And let these my words, wherewith I have made supplication
before the Lord
At this time:

be nigh unto the Lord our God day and night;
be continually remembered and regarded by him, that so gracious answers might always be returned to those who supplicated in this place:

that he maintain the cause of his servant;
of himself and his successors in the throne, that they may continue to possess it in peace, to the glory of God, and the good of the people:

and the cause of his people Israel at all times:
that their rights and privileges might be continued, and they supported in them; and both his cause and theirs be regarded:

as the matter shall require;
as they should stand in need of assistance, direction, and protection.
