2 Chronicles 6:32-33


6:32 “Foreigners, who do not belong to your people Israel, will come from a distant land because of your great reputation 1  and your ability to accomplish mighty deeds; 2  they will come and direct their prayers toward this temple. 6:33 Then listen from your heavenly dwelling place and answer all the prayers of the foreigners. 3  Then all the nations of the earth will acknowledge your reputation, 4  obey 5  you like your people Israel do, and recognize that this temple I built belongs to you. 6

2 tn Heb “and your strong hand and your outstretched arm.”

3 tn Heb “and do all which the foreigner calls to [i.e., “requests of”] you.”

4 tn Heb “name.” See the note on “reputation” in v. 32.

5 tn Heb “fear.”

6 tn Heb “that your name is called over this house which I built.” The Hebrew idiom “call the name over” indicates ownership. See 2 Sam 12:28.
