       * Ex 20:24,25 Nu 28:3-31 De 12:5-7 2Ch 6:6 Ps 78:68
      Bp. Patrick observes, that before the temple was built, there
      seems to have been a tabernacle pitched for Divine service, as
      was in David's time, not on mount Moriah, but mount Sion, to
      be used while the temple was building.  Let us learn hence to
      begin with God, and to do what we can in the worship of God,
      when we cannot do what we would.  They could not immediately
      have a temple, but they would not be without an altar.
      Wherever a Christian goes, if he carry not with him the
      sacrifices of prayer and praise, he is wanting in his duty;
      for he has an altar ever ready that sanctifies both the gift
      and the giver.

      north, 150 stadia from Antipatris, according to Josephus, 30
      miles south of Caesarea, 12 miles north of Ashdod, 9 miles
      west of Ramla, and 40 miles west of Jerusalem, according to

      equal interest.  The prophet Haggai (ch 1 2:1-9) comforted them
      on this occasion, by assuring them that the glory of this
      latter house should exceed that of the former, because the
      Lord would come to this temple, and fill it with His glory.
