Verse of the Day (May 4, 2020)

Verse of the Day (May 4, 2020) #BMSeminary – This statement is situated within particulars related to the God’s covenant with Israel and David and the temple sacrificial system (vv. 15-16). These details regarding the hope of the restoration of the Davidic dynasty apply only to the nation of Israel within the specific geographic area of the promised land. Furthermore, the Chronicler is retelling something that had been told to Solomon about four centuries earlier. While there is a secondary line of significance to the Chronicler’s time, this verse is not a promissory statement for countries around the globe. Nevertheless, God may choose to be gracious to peoples and nations according to his own sovereign will (see Jer 18:1-10). (Zondervan Study Bible)
