1 Kgs 7:1-51
In today’s passage, we learnt of what went into the building of Solomon’s own house. The house took thirteen years to built, and we have details of the measurements and composition of different parts of the house described in this seventh chapter.
Notable mention was made of Hiram from Tyre, who we learnt was filled with wisdom in brass related works, he was responsible for the brass works in Solomon’s house and the temple. Much of the whole chapter was filled with the beauty and majesty of his works.
The chapter concludes by telling us that the all the works for the temple were completed, and Solomon brought in the silver and gold vessels that David his father had already dedicated in as parts of the treasures for the temple.
When God promises, he is able to fulfil. Today, we see his promises to David that his son would build the temple come to pass, as Solomon put the treasures of his father into the temple. Though it tarries, it will come to pass – Hold on!
Some verses to remember
vs 14: He was a widow’s son of the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man of Tyre, a worker in brass: and he was filled with wisdom, and understanding, and cunning to work all works in brass. And he came to king Solomon, and wrought all his work.
vs 51: So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the LORD. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the LORD.
