He shall build an house for my name
For the honour of it, for the worship and service of God, as it is well known Solomon did; and so his antitype the Messiah, ( Zechariah 6:12 Zechariah 6:13 ) ;
and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever;
that is, for a long time. Solomon's reign was forty years, and the kingdom of Judah continued in his posterity until the Babylonish captivity, and a prince that descended from him was the ruler of the people when they returned: this has its fulfilment more eminently in Christ, who was of his seed, to whom God has given "the throne of his father David", and who "shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever", ( Luke 1:32 Luke 1:33 ) .
