David told his leaders and priests that Solomon would take the responsibility of constructing the Temple of the LORD. This was something that David wanted to do, but was not allowed. David had collected and set aside as much of the building materials as he could. He was a godly king of Israel despite his flaws, and he lived his life to an impressive age, especially for a warrior. Never would there be another king who would experience so much foundational history as David did. Solomon was the second child of David and Bathsheba. Their first child was the result of adultery, and died because of David’s sin. Now, in 2 Chronicles 3, we begin to read about the details of the Temple, and about the incredible riches it took to complete it.
