I just finished the life of Solomon, in II Chronicles. Although this was a very brief snapshot of his life, the details of the Lord's Temple were amazing. This scaled drawing, from my new ESV Study Bible, gives us a scaled representation of what this structure must have looked like.
The place was dripping in pure gold. So wealthy, was Solomon, the Bible says that pure silver was as a common, and plentiful as a common stone.
I am finding that my ESV Study Bible Reading Plan is a great tool to make my way through the Bible. This tool has become a treasured resource.
