1 Chronicles 26:27

Out of the spoils won in battle did they dedicate to maintain
the house of the Lord.
] When it should be built; for as yet it was not; both to repair it when necessary, and to provide sacrifices for it; or to confirm, strengthen, and animate the heart of the king to build it, so some, and put it into the power of his hands to do it; so the Romans dedicated the best of their spoil, and laid it up in the temple of Jupiter Feretrius, after the example of Romulus, their first king F6; yea, sometimes out of the spoil they erected temples, as Tarquinius Superbus F7 did; or repaired and ornamented them, as the temple at Delphos, and others F8.
