Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Temple
 
There’s nothing ill can dwell in such a temple:
If the ill spirit have so fair a house,
Good things will strive to dwell with ’t.
        Shakespeare.—Tempest, Act I. Scene 2. (Miranda to Prospero.)
  1
All unfit in such a pile to dwell.
        Churchill.—The Rosciad, Line 897.
  2
Then tower’d the palace, then in awful state,
  The temple rear’d its everlasting gate,
No workman’s steel, no ponderous axes rung:
  Like some tall palm the noiseless fabric sprung.
        Heber.—Palestine, Page 45, ed. 1812.
  3
Silently as a dream the fabric rose;
No sound of hammer, or of saw was there.
        Cowper.—The Task, Book 5, Line 144. (The Winter Morning Walk.)
  4
There was neither hammer nor axe, nor any tool of iron heard in the house while it was building.
        Holy Bible.—1 Kings, Chap. vi. Ver. 7.
  5
No man saw the building of the New Jerusalem, the workmen crowded together, the unfinished walls and unpaved streets; no man heard the clink of trowel and pickaxe; it descended out of heaven from God.
        Anonymous.—Ecce Homo, Page 310.
  6
And I John saw the holy city New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven.
        Holy Bible.—Revelation of St. John the Divine, Chap. xxi. Ver. 2.
