John Trapp Complete Commentary

2 Kings 12:14 But they gave that to the workmen, and repaired therewith the house of the LORD.

Ver. 14. But they gave that to the workmen.] Who both bought the materials, and wrought them: providing both for their credit and their work, that it might go on end, as they say, and have nothing to hinder it.

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(14) But they gave that to the workmen.—Literally, for to the doers of the work they used to give it, and they used to repair, &c. In Chronicles it is added that, after the repairs were finished, the money that was left was applied to the purpose of making “spoons and vessels of gold and silver” for the house of the Lord. This certainly has the appearance of having been added to the original account, for the purpose of edifying the chronicler’s contemporaries. He may, however, have found it in the compilation on which he mainly depended.
