    Definitions for 2 Chronicles 1:9

    Let - To hinder or obstruct.

    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Chronicles 1:9

    Let thy promise - דברך debarcha, thy word; פתגמך pithgamach, Targum. It is very remarkable that when either God or man is represented as having spoken a word then the noun פתגם pithgam is used by the Targumist; but when word is used personally, then he employs the noun מימרא meymera, which appears to answer to the Λογος of St. John, John 1:1, etc.
