"And he made chains, as in the oracle, and put them on the heads of the pillars; and made an hundred pomegranates, and put them on the chains." (NIV)
This was a massive project. Solomon hired 30,000 men to assist in the forests of Lebanon, 80,000 who quarried stone in the mountains, and 70,000 who carried the products from their origin to the temple site. He had 3,300 men hires just to supervise the laborers.
But, even more amazing is the temple that God created by creating mankind. I Corinthians 3:16 (another 3:16!) states: "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit if God dwelleth in you?" (KJV)
Even more than Solomon's temple is our body- our temple- a wonderful, beautiful, and detail-oriented creation.
Let us give thanks to The Creator.
