2 Chronicles 1:13 Meaning and Commentary

2 Chronicles 1:13

Then Solomon came from his journey to the high place that was
at Gibeon
Or rather without the supplement, the words may be read as in the Septuagint and Vulgate Latin versions,

Solomon came from the high places;
having sacrificed there, so Vatablus; (l) being put for (m) , as R. Jonah observes F2; but the Targum agrees with us, he

``came to the high place which is in Gibeon, and from thence to Jerusalem;''

and to the same purpose Kimchi; having been there, he came to Jerusalem:

from before the tabernacle of the congregation;
which was at Gibeon, where he had been sacrificing:

and reigned over Israel
in great splendour and prosperity. From hence, to the end of the chapter, the same things are said as in ( 1 Kings 10:26-29 ) . (See Gill on 1 Kings 10:26) (See Gill on 1 Kings 10:27) (See Gill on 1 Kings 10:28) (See Gill on 1 Kings 10:29)


F2 Apud Kimchium. in loc.

2 Chronicles 1:13 In-Context

11 God answered Solomon, "Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked possessions, wealth, honor, or the life of those who hate you, and have not even asked long life, but have asked wisdom and knowledge for yourself that you may govern my people over whom I have made you king,
12 wisdom and knowledge are granted to you. I will also give you riches, possessions, and honor, such as none of the kings had who were before you, and none after you shall have the like."
13 So Solomon came from the high place at Gibeon, from before the tent of meeting, to Jerusalem. And he reigned over Israel.
14 Solomon gathered together chariots and horsemen. He had 1,400 chariots and 12,000 horsemen, whom he stationed in the chariot cities and with the king in Jerusalem.
15 And the king made silver and gold as common in Jerusalem as stone, and he made cedar as plentiful as the sycamore of the Shephelah.
