And Nathan said to the king, Go, do all that is in your heart; for the LORD is with you.
All Commentaries on 2 Samuel 7:3 Go To 2 Samuel 7
Gregory The Dialogist
The spirit of prophecy does not enlighten the minds of the prophets constantly, Peter. We read in sacred Scripture that the Holy Spirit breathes where he pleases, and we should also realize that he breathes when he pleases. For example, when King David asked whether he could build a temple, the prophet Nathan gave his consent but later had to withdraw it.
