Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 6:11


6:10 Built chambers - The Hebrew words may be properly rendered,He built a roof, a flat and plain roof, over all the house,according to the manner of the Israelitish buildings. The inner roofwas arched, ver.#9|, that it might be the more beautiful, but theoutward roof was flat. Five cubits - Above the walls of the temple: thatit might be a little higher than the arched roof, which it was designed tocover and secure. They rested - Heb. it rested, namely, the roof.Timber of cedar - Which rested upon the top of the wall, as the chambers,ver.#5|, rested upon the sides of the wall.

6:12 If - God expresses the condition upon which his promise andfavour is suspended; and by assuring him thereof in case of obedience, heplainly intimates the contrary upon his disobedience. Thus he was taught,that all the charge he and the people were at, in erecting this temple,would neither excuse them from obedience to the law of God, nor shelterthem from his judgments in case of disobedience.
