Thoughtfulness at the Construction Site

1 Kings 6 & 7

”The stones used in the construction of the Temple were finished at the quarry, so there was no sound of hammer, ax, or any other iron tool at the building site.“ 1 Kings‬ ‭6‬:‭7‬ ‭NLT‬‬ This has got to be the definition of utmost respect! No major noise going on around the temple? Very thoughtful, indeed.

And how is this for rich and showy? ”Then Solomon overlaid the rest of the Temple’s interior with solid gold, and he made gold chains to protect the entrance to the Most Holy Place.“ 1 Kings‬ ‭6‬:‭21‬ ‭NLT‬‬ I bet that was a sight to behold.

”The entire building was completed in every detail by midautumn, in the month of Bul, during the eleventh year of [Solomon’s] reign. So it took seven years to build the Temple.“ 1 Kings‬ ‭6‬:‭38‬ ‭NLT‬‬
