discomfort flag.... We are discussing the 13 Rules of Torah Elucidation. One resolution required us to utilize sefer Shmuel and also Divrei Hayamim, records outside of Torah itself. This troubles me. While these portions of Tanakh do indeed support the elucidation, surely there is a citing within Torah itself that resolves the seeming contradiction of the topic of the site of the Holy Temple.
