The Building of the Temple.
- There is a more particular account of the Building of the
Temple in 1Ki 6. It must be in the place David had prepared,
not only which he had purchased, but which he had fixed On By
Divine direction. Full instructions enable us to go about our
work with certainty and to proceed therein with comfort. Blessed
be God, the Scriptures are enough to render the Man of God
thoroughly furnished for every good work. Let us search the
Scriptures daily, beseeching the Lord to enable us to
understand, believe, and obey his Word, that our work and our
way may be made Plain, and that all may be begun, continued, and
ended in him. Beholding God, in Christ, his true Temple, more
glorious than that of Solomon's, may we become a spiritual
House, a Habitation of God through the Spirit.
