Wesley's Notes for 1 Chronicles 22:12


22:14 Trouble - This he alleges as a reason why he could do no more,because of the many wars, whereby much of his treasures were exhausted.Talents - A talent of Gold in the first constitution was three thousandshekels, as may be gathered from #Exod 38:24|,25,26, and so this amountsto a vast sum, yet not impossible for David to get, considering how manyand great conquests he made, and what vast spoils and presents he got; andthat he endeavoured by all honourable ways to get as much as he could, outof zeal for God's house. And whereas some object, that this quantity ofgold and silver was sufficient, tho' the whole fabrick of the temple hadconsisted of massy gold and silver, it is to be considered, that all thistreasure was not spent upon the materials of the temple, but a great partof it upon the workmen, who were nigh two hundred thousand, whereof a greatnumber were officers, and what was not employed in the building of thetemple, was laid up in the sacred treasures.
