My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

2 Chronicles 8

Stuff Solomon did

Solomon built up the cities he had and captures some more. He enslaved those of the land who were still around, and he invited the Pharoah's daughter to live in a palace he had built for her. He followed Moses' commands in regards to sacrifice at the tabernacle. Solomon and Hiram's men sailed to Ophir and got lots of gold from there.

Key verse:
11. My wife must not live in the palace of David king of Israel, because the places the ark of the Lord has entered are holy.

My thoughts:
Now that the very large segment focussing on the temple is largely over, we hear of Solomon's other acheivements. Israel was wealth and large in Solomon's day.
