gold in the Bible
Many tons of it were used in connection with the temple (2 Chronicles 1:15).
In Daniel 2:38, the Babylonian Empire is spoken of as a “head of gold” because of its great riches; and Babylon was called by Isaiah (Daniel 14:4) the “golden city” (Revised King James Version marginal note, “exactress,” adopting the reading marhebah, instead of the usual word madhebah).
