I'm a beginning exegete and I'm trying to determine, are the prayer requests of 1 Kings 8:31-52 grammatically subordinate to the "requests" of 1 Kings 1:25-26?
Verses 25-26 where Solomon asks God to "keep" and "confirm" are Qal Imperatives. However, all the specific requests of the rest of the prayer are in the Qal Qatal (Perfect) 2nd-person. Does this mean the requests in Qal Qatal 2ms are ways by which God fulfills the imperative prayer requests?
Its very possible I could be reading too far into something that is just incidental and has no exegetical significance whatsoever.
