Construction According to 1 Chronicles 22:14, David had bequeathed to Solomon an accumulated wealth of 100,000 talents of gold and 1,000,000 talents of silver as financial resources towards the construction of the temple. He also gave him plans for many parts of the Temple and the articles used in it. (1 Chronicles 28:11-19) The construction of the Temple is described in the Book of Kings: The preparatory undertakings for the construction took about three years.

David provides Solomon with a fantastically large amount of gold and silver with which to build the temple: 100,000 talents of gold and 1,000,000 talents of silver. Since a talent was about 34 kilograms, this would be 3.4 million kg of gold -- or about 120 million ounces, which nearly as much as is currently in the United States depository in Fort Knox. Not bad for a small tribe in 1000

There were 2,000,000 Hebrews in 1450 B.C.E. during the Exodus and many more during the days of Solomon in 950 B.C.E. 34Kilos per talent is only speculative at best as one king in the the middle east wore a crown of gold weighing 1 talent - surely not 34 Kilos in weight.
