1 Chronicles 22:14 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

14 See, with great effort I have laid up for the house of the Lord a hundred thousand talents of gold,[a] a million talents of silver, and bronze and iron in such great quantities that they cannot be weighed. I have also laid up wood and stones, to which you must add.

Footnotes:

  1. 22:14 A hundred thousand talents of gold: about 3,775 tons of gold. A million talents of silver: about 37,750 tons of silver. These highly exaggerated figures are intended to stress the inestimable value of the Temple as the center of Israelite worship. More modest figures are given in 1 Kgs 9:14, 28; 10:10, 14.
