weight of gold
2 Chronicles 9:13
9:13 weight of gold. The annual income of gold to King Solomon is here said to be 666 talents (see also I Kings 10:14). This would be about 25 US tons of gold, every year! Solomon’s temple and palace, with their furnishings (his throne was made of ivory overlaid with gold—II Chronicles 9:17) were lavishly decorated and overlaid with gold. However, comparable abundances of gold are also mentioned in Egypt, Assyria and other ancient lands.
