John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Chronicles 22:14

Trouble — This he alleges as a reason why he could do no more, because of the many wars, whereby much of his treasures were exhausted. Talents — A talent of Gold in the first constitution was three thousand shekels, as may be gathered from Exodus 38:24-26, and so this amounts to a vast sum, yet not impossible for David to get, considering how many and great conquests he made, and what vast spoils and presents he got; and that he endeavoured by all honourable ways to get as much as he could, out of zeal for God's house. And whereas some object, that this quantity of gold and silver was sufficient, tho' the whole fabrick of the temple had consisted of massy gold and silver, it is to be considered, that all this treasure was not spent upon the materials of the temple, but a great part of it upon the workmen, who were nigh two hundred thousand, whereof a great number were officers, and what was not employed in the building of the temple, was laid up in the sacred treasures.
