Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible

Have gathered - Rather, “have poured out” or “emptied out.” The allusion probably is to the emptying of the chest in which all the money collected had been placed 2 Kings 12:9.

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And Shaphan the scribe came to the king, and brought the king word again,.... Of the delivery of his message to the high priest, and of what had been done upon it:

and said, thy servants have gathered the money that was found in the house; meaning Hilkiah and himself, who had examined the chest in the temple, into which the money was put for the repairs of it, and had taken it out, and told it:

and have delivered it into the hand of them that do the work, that have the oversight of the house of the Lord; according to the king's orders.

Ver. 9. Thy servants have gathered.] Heb., Melted. (a) Hence Vatablus inferreth, that much of the silver gathered was yet uncoined. See 2 Kings 22:4.

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(9) Thy servants.—Hilkiah and I.

Have gathered.—Rather, have poured out—i.e., from the alms-chest into the bags.

In the house.—In the wider sense of the word, as including the outer court (2 Kings 12:9). Chronicles reads “in the house of the Lord,” which is probably right. So LXX., Vulg., Arabic here.
