1 Kings 7:38-51

Hiram is a type of the Holy Spirit, "the divine Workman", occupied in preparing everything down here – and in particular the hearts of believers – in view of the glory of God. The sea, immense bowl some fifteen feet in diameter, would serve for the priests to wash, whilst the ten lavers, resting on their ten bases, were used for washing the offerings (2 Chronicles 4:6).

From v. 48 onwards, we have a list of the articles of gold fashioned by Solomon. But he, afterwards bringing in the holy things of David his father (v. 51), reminds us of Jesus the Son, having the charge of that which belongs to the Father. "The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand" (John 3:35; John 17:10). Notice at the same time that, contrary to what happened for the tabernacle (Exodus 35:21-29), there is no statement here of what the people gave. We understand the reason for this: in heaven, nothing can enter of that which comes from man. Everything there is divine; all is the exclusive and perfect work of the Father, of the Son, of the Holy Spirit. The three Persons who were together engaged in the first creation, are also concerned together with the glory to come and with the new creation.
