Now all the work of Solomon was prepared unto the day of the
foundation of the house of the Lord, and until it was finished
The materials were prepared, and the money for the expenses; and even the very stones and timber were made fit for the building, so that there was nothing to retard the completion of it:
so the house of God was perfected;
in the space of seven years, in all the parts, and according to the form and pattern of it, see ( 1 Kings 6:38 ) .
