Solomon builds temple. Temple dimensions, design and method of construction are described. David covenant (with telling conditional clauses) reaffirmed.
Solomon builds his and his wife’s house, taking thirteen years to do so. It included pillars, bevelled windows, a hall of judgment, and much splendour. Huram – half Israelite, half from Tyre – makes the furnishings for the temple.
Solomon calls Israel to Jerusalem, where the ark of covenant brought into the Holy of Holies in the new temple. The cloud of the Lord’s presence (shekinah) enters the temple, so that the preists cannot continue ministering. The temple dedicated, and the Davidic covenant is reaffirmed (with conditional clauses). Solomon expresses the hope that the Lord shall say of the temple, ‘My name shall be there’. God begged to hear supplications when Israelites are making oaths, have been defeated, are suffering from famine or plague, or have been taken captive in a foreign land. Solomon ends by enjoining loyalty, and walking in the way of the Lord’s statues. There is a huge feast with thousands of offerings made.
