Default Day 97. 1 Kings 4-6 - 12-17-2007, 10:28 PM

1 Kings 4-6

Today we get:
  • Solomon's provision
  • Solomon starts building
  • He keeps building

1 Kings 4

1 So king Solomon was king over all Israel.

That's just a reminder that nobody was trying to usurp Solomon's kingdom.

20 Judah and Israel were many, as the sand which is by the sea in multitude, eating and drinking, and making merry.

Solomon is apparently wise enough to not number them; as he learned from his father that numbering the people really pisses off God.

21 And Solomon reigned over all kingdoms from the river unto the land of the Philistines, and unto the border of Egypt: they brought presents, and served Solomon all the days of his life.

What a glorious job to be the wisest king known to mankind. Everyday, from all around the world people would show up and bring him stuff.

22 And Solomon's provision for one day was thirty measures of fine flour, and threescore measures of meal,

23 Ten fat oxen, and twenty oxen out of the pastures, and an hundred sheep, beside harts, and roebucks, and fallowdeer, and fatted fowl.


Each day, he would go through that shopping list. 30 measures of flower, 60 of meal; 30 total oxen; 100 sheep; and unlimited deer and clean birds.

25 And Judah and Israel dwelt safely, every man under his vine and under his fig tree, from Dan even to Beersheba, all the days of Solomon.

When Solomon was king, nobody attacked. Everyone was living in peace with each other. There were no suicide bombers; no roving rape gangs; no heavy metal music.

26 And Solomon had forty thousand stalls of horses for his chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen.


This was the standing army, people just waiting to fight, every other man was draftable.

29 And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore.

He had the wisdom about the same size as the amount of Israelites.

30 And Solomon's wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the children of the east country, and all the wisdom of Egypt.

He was modest too.

31 For he was wiser than all men; than Ethan the Ezrahite, and Heman, and Chalcol, and Darda, the sons of Mahol: and his fame was in all nations round about.

Ethan the Ezrahite may have been a cymbal player in David's court, he was the (supposed) author of Pslam 89.

Heman wrote Psalm 88.

Chalcol, we don't know anything about him.

Darda, we also don't know much about him.

Well, this is interesting, according to some Jews, they claim that Ethan represents Abraham; Heman is Moses; Chalcol is Joseph; and Darda is the entirety of knowledge in the wilderness. Thus saying that Solomon is wiser than ALL the major biblical people before him.

32 And he spake three thousand proverbs: and his songs were a thousand and five.

That's a vast catalog of both wisdom and sonnets.

34 And there came of all people to hear the wisdom of Solomon, from all kings of the earth, which had heard of his wisdom.

If you heard about his wisdom, you went to see him.

1 Kings 5

1 And Hiram king of Tyre sent his servants unto Solomon; for he had heard that they had anointed him king in the room of his father: for Hiram was ever a lover of David.

Not THAT kind of lover!

David replied back.

3 Thou knowest how that David my father could not build an house unto the name of the LORD his God for the wars which were about him on every side, until the LORD put them under the soles of his feet.

Solomon claims that the reason David couldn't build the temple was because David was always at war.

4 But now the LORD my God hath given me rest on every side, so that there is neither adversary nor evil occurrent.

5 And, behold, I purpose to build an house unto the name of the LORD my God, as the LORD spake unto David my father, saying, Thy son, whom I will set upon thy throne in thy room, he shall build an house unto my name.


So, Solomon is going to start building.

6 Now therefore command thou that they hew me cedar trees out of Lebanon; and my servants shall be with thy servants: and unto thee will I give hire for thy servants according to all that thou shalt appoint: for thou knowest that there is not among us any that can skill to hew timber like unto the Sidonians.

That's a smart man, knowing that his people can't cut wood.

So, Hiram agrees to help Solomon with the project.

10 So Hiram gave Solomon cedar trees and fir trees according to all his desire.

To pay for it, Solomon sent 20,000 measures of wheat, and 20 measures of oil, each year.

13 And king Solomon raised a levy out of all Israel; and the levy was thirty thousand men.


Solomon instituted a draft.

14 And he sent them to Lebanon, ten thousand a month by courses: a month they were in Lebanon, and two months at home: and Adoniram was over the levy.

They were on a rotating schedule, for one month they were guarding Lebanon, then spent two months at home.

18 And Solomon's builders and Hiram's builders did hew them, and the stonesquarers: so they prepared timber and stones to build the house.


The house of the LORD is about to be built.

1 Kings 6

1 And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month Zif, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of the LORD.

This was approximately the year 1000 BC.

2 And the house which king Solomon built for the LORD, the length thereof was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof twenty cubits, and the height thereof thirty cubits.

It had a lovely master suite, walk in closets and a great room.

7 And the house, when it was in building, was built of stone made ready before it was brought thither: so that there was neither hammer nor axe nor any tool of iron heard in the house, while it was in building.

This is the first example of a "prefab home" or "modular house".

God then talks to Solomon, saying keep His statutes and commandments, and He won't depart the people.

14 So Solomon built the house, and finished it.

Finished as in decorated, not as in; he was done with it.

21 So Solomon overlaid the house within with pure gold: and he made a partition by the chains of gold before the oracle; and he overlaid it with gold.

Doesn't get "finished" much better than being covered in gold.

23 And within the oracle he made two cherubims of olive tree, each ten cubits high.


There's gonna be lots of cherubims in there, with the two covering the mercy seat.

29 And he carved all the walls of the house round about with carved figures of cherubims and palm trees and open flowers, within and without.

Even more cherubims.

Palm trees DEFINITELY did not represent penises. Open flowers DID NOT represent vaginas!

This was the house of the LORD, not a friggin Georgia O'keeffe painting!

38 And in the eleventh year, in the month Bul, which is the eighth month, was the house finished throughout all the parts thereof, and according to all the fashion of it. So was he seven years in building it.

It took four years for the foundation to settle, and seven more years to end construction on the rest.

So what have we learned today?

1. Solomon was wiser than Adam, Abraham, Joseph and Moses, and YOU TOO!
2. People would come from all over the world just to give Solomon more stuff.
3. You might be able to find the little man in the boat on the walls of the temple.

There's a novel called the King David Report, that covers roughly this period of the Bible, and actually takes Ethan the Ezrahite as its main character. But it was written by a commie Joo, so it's probably a deliberate attempt to attack America and Jesus, meaning that you're better off just sticking with the Bible.


O Lord our God, help us to tear their soldiers to bloody shreds with our shells; help us to cover their smiling fields with the pale forms of their patriot dead; help us to drown the thunder of the guns with the shrieks of their wounded, writhing in pain; help us to lay waste their humble homes with a hurricane of fire; help us to wring the hearts of their unoffending widows with unavailing grief; help us to turn them out roofless with little children to wander unfriended the wastes of their desolated land in rags and hunger and thirst, sports of the sun flames of summer and the icy winds of winter, broken in spirit, worn with travail, imploring Thee for the refuge of the grave and denied it--for our sakes who adore Thee, Lord, blast their hopes, blight their lives, protract their bitter pilgrimage, make heavy their steps, water their way with their tears, stain the white snow with the blood of their wounded feet! We ask it, in the spirit of love, of Him Who is the Source of Love, and Who is the ever-faithful refuge and friend of all that are sore beset and seek His aid with humble and contrite hearts. Amen.


God being truth, justice, goodness, beauty, power, and life, man is falsehood, iniquity, evil, ugliness, impotence, and death. God being master, man is the slave. Incapable of finding justice, truth, and eternal life by his own effort, he can attain them only through a divine revelation... he who desires to worship God must harbor no childish illusions about the matter, but bravely renounce his liberty and humanity.

All The King's Horses and All The King's Men

And Solomon had forty thousand stalls of horses for his chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen. 1 Kings 4:26

And Solomon had four thousand stalls for horses and chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen; whom he bestowed in the chariot cities, and with the king at Jerusalem. 2 Chronicles 9:25

Many a day, and many a sleepless night, I did try to puzzle out how many stalls were in the stables of Solomon the King. Then it dawned on me--he had enough chariot horses to fill forty thousand stalls (it's forty thousand stalls of horses, not forty thousand stalls for horses, in 4 Kings), but only kept one tenth of this equine multitude in stalls (four thousand stalls for horses in 1 Chronicles), leaving the rest exposed to the elements. Why did he do this? I don't have a clue. But Solomon was far wiser than I am, so he must have had a good reason.

Beside the chief of Solomon's officers which were over the work, three thousand and three hundred, which ruled over the people that wrought in the work. 1 Kings 5:16

And he set threescore and ten thousand of them to be bearers of burdens, and fourscore thousand to be hewers in the mountain, and three thousand and six hundred overseers to set the people a work. 2 Chronicles 2:18

Here's another passage where athiests just don't get it. There were 3,600 overseers. Of those 3,600 overseers, there were 300 who were the chief officers (like the brigadier generals and above). Outside the 300 chief overseers, there were another 3,300 overseers (corporals and sergeants and whatnot) which ruled over the people that wrought in the work.

The Bible: The Lost Episodes

And he spake three thousand proverbs: and his songs were a thousand and five. 1 Kings 4:32

Just imagine how much more joyous our Bible study (and our lives) would be if we had today all of the missing proverbs that Solomon spake! Perhaps we, too, could have approached the wisdom of Solomon (the only persons who even come close to that these days is our great President, George W. Bush and Pastor Deacon Fred of the Landover Baptist Church). And, based on what we see in the one surviving song, just imagine the wonders that Solomon must have described in the 1,004 songs that didn't survive!

I can't believe the Jews didn't bother to put all this stuff in a safe place, if not for the love of God, then for the sake of the residuals that would have been paid every time one of the songs of Solomon was sung. Once again the Bible tells us, you cannot trust a Jew.

Is there any doubt (about Psalm 89, I mean--I don't know about the cymbals)? It says right in the KJV1611 Bible, Maschil of Ethan the Ezrahite. Surely the translators of the one true version of God's living Word would not have lied about the authorship of one of only 13 maschils in the Bible. It was also, notably, the only Psalm in which our Heavenly Father spake onto us directly:

If his [i.e., David's] children [i.e., the Jews] forsake My Law, and walk not in My judgments; If they break My statutes, and keep not My Commandments; Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes. Nevertheless My lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail. My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of My lips. Once have I sworn by My holiness that I will not lie unto David. His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before Me. It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah. Psalm 89:30-37

Quote:

That's just like the Jews, twisting God's Word to suit their atheistic gay-socialist agenda. I mean, who even heard of the wisdom of the wilderness? It sounds like something that Al Gore or another environmental terrorist would think up. Anyway, Solomon was the wisest (as we've already seen in 1 Kings 3:12), but it's not as though Solomon and Abraham and Moses were competing during Jew Week on Jeopardy ("I'll take Laws Governing Ritual Purity for 1,000 silver shekels, Alex").

I know exactly what's going on here, the Jews are so desperate to draw attention away from Psalm 89, in which God spells out that the Jews will be damned if they reject God's Word (see above for the text) that they made up some ridiculous story that rejected God's Word. Time to get out the transgression rod and visit some Jews, if you ask me.

Don't say that too loudly. We might get some Catholic in here trying to claim that the works of fan-fiction titled Wisdom of Solomon and Ecclesiasticus/Sirach are those missing proverbs and songs. Those fake books were no more written by King Solomon than was Aleister Crowley's The Lesser Key of Solomon.


Upon request I will cite scripture for all these facts in God's Holy Word.

✝ This is a Christian community and we worship GOD of the Holy bible, the only Living GOD. We worship Jesus Christ, Son of GOD and Savior. Anything else is absurd. ✝
