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.
