    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:1

    ¶ Y comenzó Salomón a edificar la Casa en Jerusalén, en el monte Moriah que había sido mostrado a David su padre, en el lugar que David había preparado en la era de Ornán jebuseo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Chronicles 3:1

    Verse 1. In Mount
    Moriah] Supposed to be the same place where Abraham was about to offer his son Isaac; so the Targum: "Solomon began to build the house of the sanctuary of the Lord at Jerusalem, in the place where Abraham had prayed and worshipped in the name of the Lord. This is the place of the earth where all generations shall worship the Lord. Here Abraham was about to offer his son Isaac for a burnt- offering; but he was snatched away by the WORD of the Lord, and a ram placed in his stead.

    Here Jacob prayed when he fled from the face of Esau his brother; and here the angel of the Lord appeared to David, at which time David built an altar unto the Lord in the threshing-floor which he bought from Araunah the Jebusite."


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. These two chapters give an account of the building of the temple, of the materials, parts, and form of it, and of things belonging to it, and which agrees with ( 1 Kings 6:1-7:51) see the notes there; only here, ( <130301> Chronicles 3:1), mention is made of the particular place where it was built, Mount Moriah; of which see the notes on ( Genesis 22:2 <132201> Chronicles 22:1). The dimensions of the house, as the Targum rightly explains, ( 2 Chronicles 3:3), are said to be after the first measure, either of that of the tabernacle by Moses, or rather of that of the pattern David gave to Solomon, ( 1 Chronicles 28:11), though some understand it of the greater cubit: the holy place is called the greater house, ( Chronicles 3:5), being twice as long as the holy of holies; in ( Chronicles 3:6), we are informed what the precious stones were for, which David and his princes gave for the temple, ( 1 Chronicles 29:2,8), that they were to decorate the house; and also what sort of gold was used in overlaying it, gold of Parvaim, which some interpret of Peru f8 , in America; but it is a question whether that was then known, or, if it was, must go by another name, since Peru is a late name given by the Spaniards, at their conquest of it. Bochart takes it to be Taprobane, an island in the Indian sea, as if it was Taph Parvan or Provan, the shore of Parvan. Kircher is of opinion it is the same with Javaim, the isles of Java in the same sea, from whence was gold, which is not very likely. Waserus thinks Parvaim is the name of a town which is by Pliny corruptly called Parbacia, which was in the land of Havilah, or the kingdom of the Charazenes, where was the best gold, ( Genesis 2:11,12) though others suppose it to be the same with Ophir, by removing the first letter of the word, to which Pfeiffer inclines, and is as probable as any; and much more probable than what the Jews f14 say, that this gold was so called, because it was red like the blood of “parim”, oxen: in ( 2 Chronicles 3:8), the quantity of gold, with which the most holy place was overlaid, is given, six hundred talents: of which (see Gill on “ 1 Kings 6:21”), In ( 2 Chronicles 3:9) we read of the nails with which the plates of gold were fastened to the boards, nowhere else mentioned, except in the Vulgate Latin version of ( 1 Kings 6:21), “he fastened the plates with golden nails”; which version perhaps is most correct; the weight of which were fifty shekels of gold; that is, according to the Septuagint and Vulgate Latin versions, each nail weighed so much, which amounted to seventy five pounds of our money f15 . Eupolemus, an Heathen writer speaks of these nails, which he makes to be silver ones; and says they were of the weight of a talent, in the form of a woman’s breast, and in number four, with which the plates of gold were fastened, which were of five cubits; I suppose he means there were four of these nails in every plate of five cubits: in ( 2 Chronicles 4:1) an account is given of an “altar of brass”, made by Solomon, we have not elsewhere, only referred to ( 1 Kings 8:64 9:25) whether this was only covered with brass, as that made by Moses was, as some think; or whether of massy brass, as Dr. Lightfoot because not to be removed as that was, is not certain; the altar of the second temple was of stones unpolished, according to the Misnah f19 , with which agrees “46 And laid up the stones in the mountain of the temple in a convenient place, until there should come a prophet to shew what should be done with them. 47 Then they took whole stones according to the law, and built a new altar according to the former;” (1 Maccabees 4) and so Philo f20 : “twenty cubits was the length thereof, and twenty cubits the breadth thereof, and ten cubits the height thereof”; it was four times as big in its square as that of Moses, and three times higher, and a cubit over, (see Gill on “ Exodus 27:1”). Hecataeus f21 , an Heathen writer, speaks of this altar as four square, and made of whole and unpolished stones, each side of which was twenty cubits, but the height of it he makes to be twelve cubits, in which he mistakes. It weighed, according to Jacob Leon arobas of brass, each aroba containing twenty five pounds. The rest of the chapter agrees with the account in the book of Kings.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    The
    furniture of the temple.

    --Here is a further account of the furniture of God's house. Bot without doors and within, there was that which typified the grace of the gospel, and shadowed out good things to come, of which the substance is Christ. There was the brazen altar. The making of this wa not mentioned in the book of Kings. On this all the sacrifices wer offered, and it sanctified the gift. The people who worshipped in the courts might see the sacrifices burned. They might thus be led to consider the great Sacrifice, to be offered in the fulness of time, to take away sin, and put an end to death, which the blood of bulls an goats could not possibly do. And, with the smoke of the sacrifices their hearts might ascend to heaven, in holy desires towards God an his favour. In all our devotions we must keep the eye of faith fixe upon Christ. The furniture of the temple, compared with that of the tabernacle, showed that God's church would be enlarged, and his worshippers multiplied. Blessed be God, there is enough in Christ for all __________________________________________________________________
