1 Kings 8:13

8:13 O Lord, 1  truly I have built a lofty temple for you, a place where you can live permanently.”

1 Kings 8:27


8:27 “God does not really live on the earth! 2  Look, if the sky and the highest heaven cannot contain you, how much less this temple I have built!

1 tn The words “O Lord” do not appear in the original text, but they are supplied for clarification; Solomon addresses the Lord in prayer at this point.

2 tn Heb “Indeed, can God really live on the earth?” The rhetorical question expects the answer, “Of course not,” the force of which the translation above seeks to reflect.
