New Defender's Study Bible Notes
6:23 hear thou from heaven. Eight times in Solomon’s prayer, he beseeches God to “hear from heaven” (II Chronicles 6:21,23,25,27,30,33,35,39) when His people confess their sins and pray for deliverance. It is another great mystery that God, whose “dwelling place” is in heaven (II Chronicles 6:21,30,33,39), can actually hear the prayers (even the prayers uttered silently) of people here on Earth. Yet, though He dwells in heaven, He is also omnipresent, by His Holy Spirit, and He is also omniscient—so He hears and knows!
