1 Kings 6:29-30

1 Kings 6:29-30 King James Version (KJV)
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.

30 And the floors of the house he overlaid with gold, within and without.

1 Kings 6:29-30

BBE29And all the walls of the house inside and out were ornamented with forms of winged ones and palm-trees and open flowers.30And the floor of the house was covered with gold, inside and out.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

29 Stone cutting was an art form that was done on the most precious buildings. Angels being put on this wall showed that this was a place of worship, palm trees and flowers shown growth, this building were used to build a relationship with the Lord. We are to build a relationship with the Lord and grow that relationship but we are not limited to do it within one building.

30 Gold was precious for them to walk on gold shows that compared to the Lord it is nothing a relationship with Him more valuable than gold, in heaven the streets are paved with gold.


Solomon with all his wisdom added to the pattern laid down by God in building the Tabernacle .
For only inside the Holy of Holies was there to be any form of a Cherubim.Which would be seen only by the High priest once a year for a very short time and by no one else .
That he added to it and also made such images outside the Holy of Holies he was but sowing the seeds of idolitory even in the building of it .
Which men think they are justified in their graven images even to this day.

in Christ
