Asked (hthsato). Aorist middle (indirect) indicative, asked for himself (as a favour to himself). Cf. 2 Samuel 7:2 . A habitation (skhnwma). Like Psalms 132:5 , but it was a house that David proposed to build ( 2 Samuel 7:2 ), not a tent (skhnh) which already existed. Skhnwma here means a more permanent abode (oikon, house, in verse 2 Samuel 47 ), though from the same root as skhnh.
