1 Kings 8:12 – 21

2 Chronicles 6:1 – 11



1. Why does God appear as a “dark cloud” (see Exodus 19:16)?

2. Does Solomon say that God lives in the temple? How does he speak about God’s presence there?

3. In Solomon’s speech to the people, what do you learn about . . .

  • God?
  • David?
  • Solomon?

4. What main point do you think Solomon tried to make in this speech?

5. Are you shy of speech-making? Is there something the people around you need to hear? Do they seem open to hearing it?
