1 Chronicles 17:13

Adam Clarke
Bible Commentary

I will not take my mercy away from him - I will not cut off his family from the throne, as I did that of his predecessor Saul.

Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible

My son - The minatory clause which occurs after this in Samuel is here omitted, because the writer is not about to record the sins of Solomon, or the sufferings 1 Kings 11:9-40 which he thereby brought upon himself.
