Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 6:23


6:23 Cherubim - Besides those two made by Moses, #Exod 25:18|,which were of gold, and far less than these. The Heathens set up imagesof their gods, and worshipped them. These were designed to represent theservants and attendants of the God of Israel, the holy angels, not tobe worshipped themselves, but to shew how great he is whom we worship.

    Verses 12,13~Jehovah God promised to be with his people if they kept his laws and obeyed his commandments.
  • Christ Magnified Glorifying Jesus
    I have heard that presently and somewhere are all the finished, prefabricated materials and ornaments necessary to build a new temple in Jerusalem. Those behind this task are waiting for a relevant time to set it all in motion. If this is true, than it adheres to this particular chapter concerning the construction of the original temple, but the new one will be built very very quickly.
