    Breakdown the measurements of gold, talents, shekel, etc.
  • Christ Magnified Glorifying Jesus
    Day 107 of Bible in a Year Reading. Solomon had everything; money, power, wisdom and early on he had faith that seemed lasting. It is sad to note that everything that is depicted here in this chapter and two previous chapters was forfeited by Solomon and his family for what Solomon later called vanity. From the smoke of God's glory filling everything to everything going up in smoke. Tears.
  • A disciple
    "Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred and threescore and six talents of gold;" 666 has a real meaning and is NOT something we should be superstitiously afraid of. Basic research into the archaic meanings of the words in Hebrew and Greek show us that the sixes represent over what's normal, tens and hundreds imply the multiplicative; thus an overflow w/o restraint!
  • A disciple
    Eric; King Solomon in all his wisdom and glory was made to be a type of the glorified Christ reigning over all Israel and the world. It was very terrible betrayal for him to let himself be consumed with going after strange women so that he forsook the LORD when he was old! This is a fearful warning to all of us! NO gifts from God nor yesterday's victories put us above needing to watch and pray!
  • Eric
    It is amazing to me that one of such wisdom could be so foolish. I do not want to speculate on why he did what he did, but it seems evident to me that he was not wise enough to read God's word daily. For if he had, he would have read that God had said NOT to bring in an over abundance of gold, and NOT to buy horses from Egypt. And, isn't it interesting that the amount of gold brought in was 666?
  • Anne
    I am reminded of Proverbs 10:22 which says The blessing of the Lord it maketh rich and He adds no sorrow with it.
