Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 1 Chronicles 28:18


28:18 Refined gold - Purer than any of the rest. For that was typicalof the intercession of Christ, than which nothing can be more pure andperfect. The cherubim - Which Solomon was to make, (for those whichwere fastened to the mercy - seat were made by Moses long before) whichhe fitly compares to a chariot, because within them God is said tosit and to dwell. And because a chariot is made to carry aperson from place to place, this expression may be used to intimate thatGod was not so fixed to them by the building of this temple, but that hewould remove from them if they forsook him. Covered - Not above it, forthat was done by Moses's cherubim, but before it, to keep it from theeyes of the high - priest, when he entered into the most holy place.
