Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Chronicles 29:3-4

_ _ Moreover ... I have of mine own proper good, etc. — In addition to the immense amount of gold and silver treasure which David had already bequeathed for various uses in the service of the temple, he now made an additional contribution destined to a specific purpose — that of overlaying the walls of the house. This voluntary gift was from the private fortune of the royal donor, and had been selected with the greatest care. The gold was “the gold of Ophir,” then esteemed the purest and finest in the world (Job 22:24; Job 28:16; Isaiah 13:12). The amount was three thousand talents of gold and seven thousand talents of refined silver.
