Discussion for 2 Chronicles 2:1

  • Matty on 2 Chronicles 2:1
    I love this passage. It's interesting that David was only allowed to plan, prepare and purchase the land and the work and completion of building had to be done by Solomon. Solomon was determined and would not be discouraged in his work. I always wonder though, was the duty of building the temple reserved for Solomon before his birth?
