2 Chronicles 5:1

Thus all the work that Solomon made for the house of the Lord was finished.

Dedicated things

I. David before his death dedicated certain treasures to God.

II. Solomon most scrupulous in carrying out his father’s wish.

III. Solomon’s example worthy of our imitation. (J. Wolfendale.)

The joy of the finished work

I. The accomplishment of finished work is the cause of joy.

II. The power to accomplish this work should be ascribed to God.

III. Hence in every undertaking we should ask for god’s direction. (J. Wolfendale)

Things that are never finished

There are some buildings that are never finished. We never finish our life-building; the life-temple goes up evermore--let every man take heed how he buildeth. Do not suppose that you can finish your education. In the higher education you only finish that you may begin; you close one book as a pledge of your qualification to open another. How, as boys at school, we used to be discouraged by this process of advancement! Having closed the arithmetic, who was willing with his whole heart to open his algebra? Many persons could have comfortably left school without beginning it at all. But there is always a higher aspect of things to apprehend and apply. The table ends at twelve times twelve, but not multiplication. So we can never finish reading the Word of God. Solomon could finish his temple, but he could not finish the written record; it never ends, or it ends as the days end. How do the days close? To begin again. Each day the sun says as he westers in the golden clouds, not “Farewell,” but only “Goodbye: we meet again presently; meanwhile, sleep well! “So with the Bible; when we have read it we want to read it. You can never finish love. If you can finish it, you never began it. Love grows. There are some persons who have run out of that passion and sunk into earthliness and coldness. Then they never knew the inspiration of love. (J. Parker, D.D.)

2 Chronicles 5:1 contains the conclusion of the account of the preparation of the sacred utensils as in 1 Kings 7:51, and with it also the whole account of the building of the temple is brought to an end. The ו before את־הכּסף and את־הזּהב corresponds to the Lat. et - et , both - and also.

Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary

CONTENTS

The temple being finished, the vessels and dedicated treasures are brought into the temple, and the Lord giveth a token of his favour and acceptance.

2 Chronicles 5:1

I refer the Reader for the observations on this subject to the parallel account given of it, 1 Kings 8:2. How delightful is it to see Solomon bringing in his treasures into the Lord's house. But, Reader! how much more lovely to behold Jesus bringing in his treasures, even his redeemed, into the house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens?

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

V.

(1) Thus.—And. This verse is identical with 1 Kings 7:51. (The chronicler has made three slight corrections of the older text.)

Brought in all the things . . . dedicated.—Brought in the holy (or hallowed) things of David his father. (Comp. 1 Chronicles 18:11; 1 Chronicles 26:26-28.)

The implements.—Or, vessels. The word all is omitted by some MSS., and by the LXX., Syriac, and Arabic. “The holy things of David” are identical with “the silver and the gold and the vessels.”

THE DEDICATION OF THE TEMPLE (2 Chronicles 5:2 to 2 Chronicles 7:22).

1. 2 Chronicles 5:2-14.

NATIONAL CEREMONY OF THE TRANSFER OF THE ARK INTO THE TEMPLE.
(Comp. 1 Kings 8:1-11.)

The chapter is an almost literal duplicate of the parallel text. The desire to explain and abridge accounts for such variations as are not due to the transcribers.
