    Barnes' Notes on 1 Kings 8:42

    Great name - A somewhat rare expression. It does not occur at all in the Pentateuch; though "mighty hand" and the "stretched out arm" are so frequent Exodus 6:6; Exodus 13:9; Deuteronomy 9:29 : only once in Joshua Jos 7:9; and twice in the Psalms Psa 76:1; Psalm 99:3. About the time of the captivity the use of the phrase became more common Ezekiel 36:23; Jeremiah 10:6; Jeremiah 44:26.
