1. Exposition

Where else does the spreading out of one's hands appear in Scripture?

Ezra 9:5 (ESV)

5 And at the evening sacrifice I rose from my fasting, with my garment and my cloak torn, and fell upon my knees and spread out my hands to the LORD my God,

Spreading out of the hands was a common posture for prayer in the Bible (1 Kings 18:42; Psalm 88:9; Daniel 6:10; Isaiah 1:15; 1 Timothy 2:8). Solomon assumed this same position when he offered his prayer of dedication for the temple (1 Kings 8:54; 2 Chronicles 6:13).
