The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire Bible1 Kings 6:14
So Solomon built the house, and finished it.
] He went on with
it until he had completed it, animated and encouraged by the promise of
the divine Presence in it, provided a proper regard was had to the will
and ways of God. Abarbinel thinks the above message was sent him in the
midst of his work, to strengthen and caution him from a dependence on
the continuance of the fabric, because of the strength of it; since its
perpetuity depended on his, his successors', and the people's conduct
and behaviour; wherefore conscious to himself of his own integrity, and
hoping well of posterity, he was not discouraged, but proceeded in his
undertaking until he had brought it to perfection.
