and he took away the treasures of the house of Yahweh and the treasures of the king’s house; he took away everything, and he took away all the shields of gold that Solomon had made. Bible other translations

“of the house of Yahweh and the treasures of the king’s house.” The house of Yahweh is the Temple, and the “king’s house” is the palace. Some of the treasures of the Temple went back to Egypt, which is ironic since some of those treasures may have come from Egypt at the time of the Exodus.

“he took away all the shields of gold that Solomon had made.” Pharaoh Shishak took away the gold weapons that were stored in the Temple, but he must have left the bronze ones because there were weapons from the time of David still in the Temple many years later at the time of Joash (2 Kings 11:10; 2 Chron. 23:9).
