(25) The silver . . . was an hundred talents.--The silver talent contained 3,000 shekels, as all allow, and as appears from the present passage.

It was contributed by "them that were numbered of the congregation," each of whom paid a bekah, or half a shekel. (See above, Exodus 30:12-16.)

Verse 25. - The silver. The silver seems to have amounted to about four times the weight of the gold; but the value of it was very much less, not exceeding £40,000 of our money (Cook).

And it is certainly much more suitable for ornaments. Of them that were numbered. See above, Exodus 30:12-16.

It has been suggested that they were returned to the donors as superfluous, which is certainly possible,
