    We should look at the whole chapter where it give preferences of 2 choronicals chapter 7: 13-16 , there's familiar quote where king David Solomon's father was to build the Temple, but since king David had blood on his hands, he left it to Solomon to build the Temple it also the strangers that were not if the chosen but they were the outcast of Israel, meaning gentiles as explained in debut. 7:1-6

    Verse 63, Perhaps the meat offering is symbolic in amount. An average ox weighs 1,500 pounds. 22 thousand ox are 3 million 3 hundred thousand pounds of flesh. An average sheep at time of slaughter is around 125 pounds so 120,000 sheep would be 15 million pounds of flesh. So that would be approximately 18 million, 300 thousand pounds of flesh offered in a day in the middle of the court because the brazen alter was to small to hold it all. This immense amount of flesh makes me think perhaps the sacrifice amount was not literal but symbolic.
  • Insight 777
    Verse 27, Paul mentioned that someone else told him about a 3rd heaven but Paul was unsure if it was true or not since Paul was not given this information directly from God. So a 3rd heaven associated with earth may or may not be true. But verse 27 in this chapter is making the point that God does not reside in one place solely. God does not reside only in a heaven regardless of how many heavens have been established. God resides everywhere in the universe at all times through eternity. God is not limited to residing in one building on one small planet in the universe he created. When Jesus sets up the new Jerusalem on earth where he will live, his father, God, will still reside everywhere in the universe.
  • Insight 777
    Verse 8 is symbolic, an expression of the relation between God and man. The Lord is the light of the world. In physics, Light cannot be absorbed without limit. To absorb the light without limit would be to BE the light. According to the principle of the conservation of Energy, energy cannot be created or destroyed it can only be converted from one type to another. Consequently, most objects that absorb visible light reemit it as heat. So, although an object may appear dark such as the cloud, it is likely bright at a frequency that humans cannot perceive. For more information see thermodynamics. So this verse may be speaking of the Lord dwelling in the intense energy the ark has created which is a dark cloud to the eyes of the priests. They can not perceive the power and energy of God, it is hidden from their eyes represented by the dark cloud.
