The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire Bible1 Chronicles 28:14
He gave of gold by weight for things of gold, for all
instruments of all manner of service…
Whatever was to be made of
gold, David was directed by the Spirit of God what weight or quantity
of gold should be made use of in making it, as appears from some
following instances: silver also
for all instruments of silver by weight, for all instruments of every
kind of service;
so likewise whatever instruments or vessels, for the
service of the temple, were to be made of silver, he had a direction
from the Spirit of God what weight each was to be of, or what quantity
of silver was to be used in it, and this he gave; according to Jacob
Jehudah Leon F19, the vessels of gold were 340,000, the vessels of
silver 470,000, in all 810,000.
