    Definitions for 2 Chronicles 31:2

    Minister - Servants.

    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Chronicles 31:2

    In the gates of the tents of the Lord - That is, in the temple; for this was the house, tabernacle, tent, and camp, of the Most High.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Chronicles 31:2

    The tents - literally, "the camps." The temple is called the "camp of Yahweh" by an apt metaphor: the square enclosure, with its gates and stations, its guards and porters, its reliefs, its orderly arrangement, and the tabernacle, or tent, of the great commander in the midst, very much resembled a camp.

    Wesley's Notes on 2 Chronicles 31:2

    31:2 The tents - Within the gates of the house of the Lord: which is here called tents, because the host of the Lord, the priests and Levites, encamped there. And perhaps to intimate, that it was shortly to be removed.
