Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Chronicles 8:1 Verse 1. At the end of twenty years] He employed seven years and a half in building the temple, and twelve and a half, or thirteen, in building his own house. - Compare this with 1 Kings vii. 1.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. And it came to pass at the end of twenty years , etc.] (See Gill on “ 1 Kings 9:10”).
Matthew Henry Commentary Solomon's buildings and trade.

The difficulty is increased, when a man has a hinderance instead of a hel meet in the wife of his bosom. Solomon kept up the holy sacrifices according to the law of Moses.
