2 Chronicles 2

Solomon begins building the Lord’s temple and his house, and hiring laborers and craftsmen from Israel and Tyre.

  • What was the temple built for (v. 4)?
  • The expression “burn incense” (v. 5) refers to prayer (compare Rev 5:8; 8:3, 4). The temple was to be a place of prayer (Isa 56:7; Matt 21:13)
