from the Fore-word in my NKJV: -
"Second book of Chronicles parallels 1+2 Kings but virtually ignores the northern kingdom of Israel, because of it's false worship and refusal to acknowledge the Temple in Jerusalem . . . it focuses on those kings who pattern their lives and reigns (on) Godly king David. It gives extended treatment to such zealous reformers as Asa, Jehoshaphat, Hezekiah and Josiah.
2 Chronicles 1
What did I learn of God? - He was with Solomon and Blessed him greatly. He offered to give Solomon what he asked for. As the desire of for wisdom and knowledge were in Solomon's heart God also gave him riches, wealth and honour.
What did I learn of myself? - Do I ask God for wisdom and knowledge to do His Will? or for riches, wealth, honour, victory over enemies and/or long life? Whatever I offer God should be the best that I am able to.
What did I praise God for? - that He knows what is my heart's desire and treats me accordingly. (with either encouragement or discipline)
What did I pray for? - wisdom and knowledge to Glorify the Lord in all I do.
What is this saying in one sentence? - Solomon's heart's desire also military and economic power.
Quote:- (Lawrence O. Richards) "2 Chronicles goes into great detail about Solomon's concern regarding the Temple. To this commentator on history, the spiritual is far more important than material splendor
