Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Chronicles 4

 

 

Verse 7

And he made ten candlesticks of gold according to their form, and set them in the temple, five on the right hand, and five on the left.

Their form — The old form which God prescribed to Moses.


Verse 8

He made also ten tables, and placed them in the temple, five on the right side, and five on the left. And he made an hundred basons of gold.

Ten tables — Whereon the shew-bread was set, verse19. Perhaps each of these had twelve loaves on it. As the house was enlarged, so was the provision.


Verse 16

The pots also, and the shovels, and the fleshhooks, and all their instruments, did Huram his father make to king Solomon for the house of the LORD of bright brass.

His father — He is so called because Solomon usually called him by that name out of that great respect which he bare to him for his excellent art and service which he did for him: it being usual to call great artists and inventors of things by this name.


Verse 20

Moreover the candlesticks with their lamps, that they should burn after the manner before the oracle, of pure gold;

The manner — According to the prescription of God to Moses.


Verse 22

And the snuffers, and the basons, and the spoons, and the censers, of pure gold: and the entry of the house, the inner doors thereof for the most holy place, and the doors of the house of the temple, were of gold.

Of gold — In part; they were made of wood, but covered with golden plates.
