Treasury of Scripture

But they gave that to the workmen, and repaired therewith the house of the LORD.









(14) But they gave that to the workmen.--Literally, for to the doers of the work they used to give it, and they used to repair, &c. In Chronicles it is added that, after the repairs were finished, the money that was left was applied to the purpose of making "spoons and vessels of gold and silver" for the house of the Lord. This certainly has the appearance of having been added to the original account, for the purpose of edifying the chronicler's contemporaries. He may, however, have found it in the compilation on which he mainly depended.

Verse 14. - But they gave that - i.e., the whole money contributed - to the workmen - equivalent to "the carpenters, builders, masons, hewers of stone," etc., mentioned in vers. 11, 12 - and repaired therewith the house of the Lord; i.e. expended the money on the repairs.
