Chapter Overview

Solomon appoints men to build the temple and his own house, verse 1-2.
His message to Huram, verse 3-10.
Huram's obliging answer, verse 11-16.

Verse 1
His kingdom - A royal palace for himself and his successors.

Verse 5
Great - For though the temple strictly so called, was but small, yet the buildings belonging to it, were large and numerous.

Verse 6
Contain - When I speak of building an house for our great God, let none think I mean to comprehend God within it, for he is infinite. To sacrifice - To worship him there where he is graciously present.

Verse 12
Made heaven and earth - It seems Huram was not only a friend to the Jewish nation, but a proselyte to their religion, and that he worshipped Jehovah, the God of Israel, (who was now known by that name to the neighbour-nations) as the God that made heaven and earth, and the fountain of power as well as of being.

Verse 14
Of Dan, &c. - A good omen of uniting Jew and Gentile in the gospel-temple.

Verse 17
The strangers - For David had not only numbered his own people, but afterward the strangers, that Solomon might have a true account of them, and employ them about his buildings. Yet Solomon numbered them again, because death might have made a considerable alteration among them since David's numbering.

Verse 18
Hewers in the mountains - He would not employ the free-born Israelites in this drudgery, but the strangers that were proselytes, who having no lands, applied themselves to trades, and got their living by their industry or ingenuity.
