Chapter 6

How To Build A Temple

  • In the fourth year of his reign, in the month of Ziv (a.k.a. May), ground is broken on the temple.
  • 6:2-10 and 15-36 give the specs (hop on over to "Best of the Web" for more on this), in case you want to build Solomon's Temple in your backyard.
  • During construction, "the word of the Lord came to Solomon" (6:11), promising him that so long as he keeps God's statutes and obeys his commandments, God will dwell with Israel (in the temple) and won't forsake them. Sounds good, God.
  • After 7 years, the temple is finally built.
