David’s 5.6 Billion Dollars in Gold to Build the Temple

David gave 3,000 talents of his own gold to the temple building project in Jerusalem before he died. Did you know that 3,000 talents of gold is worth 5.6 billion dollars today. That’s quite a lot, and it was and is all God’s. Consider that the very gold that David gave to the building of the temple is still somewhere on this planet today? Made into something else most likely, but still around. $5,625,000,000 worth of gold plus the close to 10 billion given by the people. And to think, when Jesus returns, our streets are going to be paved with gold. It is nothing compared to the glory of God!

Read 1 Chronicles 29 to see the context.
