Jeremiah 52:19

 

 

The captain of the guard also took away the bowls, the firepans, the basins, the pots, the lampstands, the pans and the drink offering bowls, what was fine gold and what was fine silver.

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And the basins,.... Or "bowls"; these are omitted, 2 Kings 25:15; they were of gold, 1 Kings 7:50;

and the firepans; or "censers"; these were those of gold, which belonged to the golden altar, 1 Kings 7:50;

and the bowls; or "basins"; there were a hundred of them made of gold, 2 Chronicles 4:8;

and the cauldrons; or "pots"; these are not mentioned, 2 Kings 25:15; what they should be, that were either of gold or silver, cannot be said:

and the candlesticks; of which there were ten in number, made of pure gold, five on the right side, and five on the left, before the oracle, 1 Kings 7:49;

and the spoons; which were also of gold, 1 Kings 7:50;

and the cups: the word is rendered "bowls", to cover withal, Exodus 25:29; it was some kind of instrument or vessel used about the shewbread table, made of pure gold; according to Jarchi, these were little golden forks, upon which they placed the shewbread, to keep it from moulding; according to the MisnaF3Menachot, c. 11. sect. 6. , there were four of them:

that which was of gold in gold, and that which was of silver in silver, took the captain of the guard away; that is, everything that was of gold or silver he took away; the golden things by themselves, and the silver things by themselves, as some think.

Matthew Poole's English Annotations on the Holy Bible

Some of these utensils were only of brass; others were some of them brass, some of silver, some of gold: the captain of the guard carried away all, both those of silver, and those of gold, and those of brass.

Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable

Nebuzaradan also took to Babylon the gold and silver utensils that remained in the temple ( 1 Kings 7:49-50).

Jeremiah had predicted that the Babylonians would take the remaining furnishings in the temple to Babylon ( Jeremiah 27:19-22), but the false prophet Hananiah had promised that the furnishings already taken would be returned ( Jeremiah 28:3). Jeremiah was right.
