In the close of the foregoing book we read how God magnified Solomon and Israel obeyed him; God and Israel concurred to honour him. Now here we have an account, I. How he honoured God by sacrifice (2 Chron. 1:1-6) and by prayer, 2 Chron. 1:7-12. II. How he honoured Israel by increasing their strength, wealth, and trade, 2 Chron. 1:13-17.
