2 Chronicles 6-8

solomons temple dedicationChapter 6

Solomon’s long-winded, self-congratulatory, and very boring temple dedication speech. So glad I didn’t actually have to sit through it!

Chapter 7

The description of the festivities, which include the slaughter of 142,000 animals as a sacrifice, continues in chapter 7, which also contains this verse: “Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.” (v 14 NLT)

The video below shows how it is used by the Christian Right.

 

Chapter 8

More rehash of Solomon’s accomplishments, with a few contradictions compared to Kings.
