1 Chronicles 22 (WEBP)

[1] Then David said, “This is the house of Yahweh God, and this is the altar of burnt offering for Israel.”
[2] David gave orders to gather together the foreigners who were in the land of Israel; and he set masons to cut dressed stones to build God’s house.
[3] David prepared iron in abundance for the nails for the doors of the gates and for the couplings, and bronze in abundance without weight,
[4] and cedar trees without number, for the Sidonians and the people of Tyre brought cedar trees in abundance to David.
[5] David said, “Solomon my son is young and tender, and the house that is to be built for Yahweh must be exceedingly magnificent, of fame and of glory throughout all countries. I will therefore make preparation for it.” So David prepared abundantly before his death.
[6] Then he called for Solomon his son, and commanded him to build a house for Yahweh, the God of Israel.
[7] David said to Solomon his son, “As for me, it was in my heart to build a house to the name of Yahweh my God.
[8] But Yahweh’s word came to me, saying, ‘You have shed blood abundantly and have made great wars. You shall not build a house to my name, because you have shed much blood on the earth in my sight.
[9] Behold, a son shall be born to you, who shall be a man of peace. I will give him rest from all his enemies all around; for his name shall be Solomon, and I will give peace and quietness to Israel in his days.
[10] He shall build a house for my name; and he will be my son, and I will be his father; and I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever.’
[11] Now, my son, may Yahweh be with you and prosper you, and build the house of Yahweh your God, as he has spoken concerning you.
[12] May Yahweh give you discretion and understanding, and put you in charge of Israel, so that you may keep the law of Yahweh your God.
[13] Then you will prosper, if you observe to do the statutes and the ordinances which Yahweh gave Moses concerning Israel. Be strong and courageous. Don’t be afraid and don’t be dismayed.
[14] Now, behold, in my affliction I have prepared for Yahweh’s house one hundred thousand talents° of gold, one million talents° of silver, and bronze and iron without weight; for it is in abundance. I have also prepared timber and stone; and you may add to them.
[15] There are also workmen with you in abundance—cutters and workers of stone and timber, and all kinds of men who are skillful in every kind of work;
[16] of the gold, the silver, the bronze, and the iron, there is no number. Arise and be doing, and may Yahweh be with you.”
[17] David also commanded all the princes of Israel to help Solomon his son, saying,
[18] “Isn’t Yahweh your God with you? Hasn’t he given you rest on every side? For he has delivered the inhabitants of the land into my hand; and the land is subdued before Yahweh and before his people.
[19] Now set your heart and your soul to follow Yahweh your God. Arise therefore, and build the sanctuary of Yahweh God, to bring the ark of Yahweh’s covenant and the holy vessels of God into the house that is to be built for Yahweh’s name.”

1 Chronicles 22:14a A talent is about 30 kilograms or 66 pounds or 965 Troy ounces, so 100,000 talents is about 3 metric tons
1 Chronicles 22:14b about 30,000 metric tons

1 Chronicles 22 (KJVS)

[1] Then David H1732 said H559 (8799), This [is] the house H1004 of the LORD H3068 God H430, and this [is] the altar H4196 of the burnt offering H5930 for Israel H3478.
[2] And David H1732 commanded H559 (8799) to gather together H3664 (8800) the strangers H1616 that [were] in the land H776 of Israel H3478; and he set H5975 (8686) masons H2672 (8802) to hew H2672 (8800) wrought H1496 stones H68 to build H1129 (8800) the house H1004 of God H430.
[3] And David H1732 prepared H3559 (8689) iron H1270 in abundance H7230 for the nails H4548 for the doors H1817 of the gates H8179, and for the joinings H4226; and brass H5178 in abundance H7230 without weight H4948;
[4] Also cedar H730 trees H6086 in abundance H369 H4557: for the Zidonians H6722 and they of Tyre H6876 brought H935 (8689) much H7230 cedar H730 wood H6086 to David H1732.
[5] And David H1732 said H559 (8799), Solomon H8010 my son H1121 [is] young H5288 and tender H7390, and the house H1004 [that is] to be builded H1129 (8800) for the LORD H3068 [must be] exceeding H4605 magnifical H1431 (8687), of fame H8034 and of glory H8597 throughout all countries H776: I will [therefore] now make preparation H3559 (8686) for it. So David H1732 prepared H3559 (8686) abundantly H7230 before H6440 his death H4194.
[6] Then he called H7121 (8799) for Solomon H8010 his son H1121, and charged H6680 (8762) him to build H1129 (8800) an house H1004 for the LORD H3068 God H430 of Israel H3478.
[7] And David H1732 said H559 (8799) to Solomon H8010, My son H1121, as for me, it was in my mind H3824 to build H1129 (8800) an house H1004 unto the name H8034 of the LORD H3068 my God H430:
[8] But the word H1697 of the LORD H3068 came to me, saying H559 (8800), Thou hast shed H8210 (8804) blood H1818 abundantly H7230, and hast made H6213 (8804) great H1419 wars H4421: thou shalt not build H1129 (8799) an house H1004 unto my name H8034, because thou hast shed H8210 (8804) much H7227 blood H1818 upon the earth H776 in my sight H6440.
[9] Behold, a son H1121 shall be born H3205 (8737) to thee, who shall be a man H376 of rest H4496; and I will give him rest H5117 (8689) from all his enemies H341 (8802) round about H5439: for his name H8034 shall be Solomon H8010, and I will give H5414 (8799) peace H7965 and quietness H8253 unto Israel H3478 in his days H3117.
[10] He shall build H1129 (8799) an house H1004 for my name H8034; and he shall be my son H1121, and I [will be] his father H1; and I will establish H3559 (8689) the throne H3678 of his kingdom H4438 over Israel H3478 for H5704 ever H5769.
[11] Now, my son H1121, the LORD H3068 be with thee; and prosper H6743 (8689) thou, and build H1129 (8804) the house H1004 of the LORD H3068 thy God H430, as he hath said H1696 (8765) of thee.
[12] Only the LORD H3068 give H5414 (8799) thee wisdom H7922 and understanding H998, and give thee charge H6680 (8762) concerning Israel H3478, that thou mayest keep H8104 (8800) the law H8451 of the LORD H3068 thy God H430.
[13] Then shalt thou prosper H6743 (8686), if thou takest heed H8104 (8799) to fulfil H6213 (8800) the statutes H2706 and judgments H4941 which the LORD H3068 charged H6680 (8765) Moses H4872 with concerning Israel H3478: be strong H2388 (8798), and of good courage H553 (8798); dread H3372 (8799) not, nor be dismayed H2865 (8735).
[14] Now, behold, in my trouble H6040 I have prepared H3559 (8689) for the house H1004 of the LORD H3068 an hundred H3967 thousand H505 talents H3603 of gold H2091, and a thousand H505 thousand H505 talents H3603 of silver H3701; and of brass H5178 and iron H1270 without weight H4948; for it is in abundance H7230: timber H6086 also and stone H68 have I prepared H3559 (8689); and thou mayest add H3254 (8686) thereto.
[15] Moreover [there are] workmen H6213 (8802) H4399 with thee in abundance H7230, hewers H2672 (8802) and workers H2796 of stone H68 and timber H6086, and all manner of cunning men H2450 for every manner of work H4399.
[16] Of the gold H2091, the silver H3701, and the brass H5178, and the iron H1270, [there is] no number H4557. Arise H6965 (8798) [therefore], and be doing H6213 (8798), and the LORD H3068 be with thee.
[17] David H1732 also commanded H6680 (8762) all the princes H8269 of Israel H3478 to help H5826 (8800) Solomon H8010 his son H1121, [saying],
[18] [Is] not the LORD H3068 your God H430 with you? and hath he [not] given you rest H5117 (8689) on every side H5439? for he hath given H5414 (8804) the inhabitants H3427 (8802) of the land H776 into mine hand H3027; and the land H776 is subdued H3533 (8738) before H6440 the LORD H3068, and before H6440 his people H5971.
[19] Now set H5414 (8798) your heart H3824 and your soul H5315 to seek H1875 (8800) the LORD H3068 your God H430; arise H6965 (8798) therefore, and build H1129 (8798) ye the sanctuary H4720 of the LORD H3068 God H430, to bring H935 (8687) the ark H727 of the covenant H1285 of the LORD H3068, and the holy H6944 vessels H3627 of God H430, into the house H1004 that is to be built H1129 (8737) to the name H8034 of the LORD H3068.

1 Chronicles 22 (YLT)

[1] And David saith, ‘This is the house of Jehovah God, and this the altar for burnt-offering for Israel.’
[2] And David saith to gather the sojourners who are in the land of Israel, and appointeth hewers to hew hewn-stones to build a house of God.
[3] And iron in abundance for nails for leaves of the gates, and for couplings, hath David prepared, and brass in abundance-there is no weighing.
[4] And cedar-trees even without number, for the Zidonians and the Tyrians brought in cedar-trees in abundance to David.
[5] And David saith, ‘Solomon my son is a youth and tender, and the house to be built to Jehovah is to be made exceedingly great, for name and for beauty to all the lands; let me prepare, I pray Thee, for it;’ and David prepareth in abundance before his death.
[6] And he calleth for Solomon his son, and chargeth him to build a house to Jehovah, God of Israel,
[7] and David saith to Solomon his son, ‘As for me, it hath been with my heart to build a house to the name of Jehovah my God,
[8] and the word of Jehovah is against me, saying, Blood in abundance thou hast shed, and great wars thou hast made: thou dost not build a house to My name, for much blood thou hast shed to the earth before Me.
[9] ‘Lo, a son is born to thee; he is a man of rest, and I have given rest to him from all his enemies round about, for Solomon is his name, and peace and quietness I give unto Israel in his days;
[10] he doth build a house to My name, and he is to Me for a son, and I am to him for a father, and I have established the throne of his kingdom over Israel unto the age.
[11] ‘Now, my son, Jehovah is with thee, and thou hast prospered, and hast built the house of Jehovah thy God, as He spake concerning thee.
[12] Only, Jehovah give to thee wisdom and understanding, and charge thee concerning Israel, even to keep the law of Jehovah thy God;
[13] then thou dost prosper, if thou dost observe to do the statutes and the judgments that Jehovah charged Moses with concerning Israel; be strong and courageous; do not fear, nor be cast down.
[14] ‘And lo, in mine affliction, I have prepared for the house of Jehovah of gold talents a hundred thousand, and of silver a thousand thousand talents; and of brass and of iron there is no weighing, for in abundance it hath been, and wood and stones I have prepared, and to them thou dost add.
[15] ‘And with thee in abundance are workmen, hewers and artificers of stone and of wood, and every skilful man for every work.
[16] To the gold, to the silver, and to the brass, and to the iron, there is no number; arise and do, and Jehovah is with thee.’
[17] And David giveth charge to all heads of Israel to give help to Solomon his son,
[18] ‘Is not Jehovah your God with you? yea, He hath given rest to you round about, for He hath given into my hand the inhabitants of the land, and subdued hath been the land before His people.
[19] ‘Now, give your heart and your soul to seek to Jehovah your God, and rise and build the sanctuary of Jehovah God, to bring in the ark of the covenant of Jehovah, and the holy vessels of God, to the house that is built to the name of Jehovah.’
