Bible Commentary for 1 Kings 6:14

Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 6:14


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.

6:15 Walls - The name of a wall is not appropriated to stoneor brick, because we read of a brazen wall, #Jer 15:20|, anda wall of iron, #Ezek 4:3|.And that wall into which Saul smote his javelin, #1Sam 19:10|,seems more probably to be understood of wood, than of stone; especially,considering that it was the room where the king used to dine. By thisperiphrasis, from the floor of the house, unto the walls of the ceiling,he designs all the side - walls of the house. Them - The side - walls of thehouse. Wood - With other kind of wood, even with fir; as appears from#2Chron 3:5|, wherewith the floor is here said to be covered.Floor - This is spoken only concerning the floor, because there wasnothing but planks of fir; whereas there was both cedar and fir in thesides of the house, the fir being either put above, or upon the cedar; orintermixed with, or put between the boards or ribs of cedar: as may begathered from, #2Chron 3:5|.

6:16 House - That is, the most holy place, which contained in lengthtwenty cubits, which may be said to be on the sides Of the house,because this part took off twenty cubits in length from each side of thehouse, and was also twenty cubits from side to side, so it was twenty cubitsevery way. The oracle - the most holy place - The last words are added, toexplain what he means by the word oracle, which he had not used before.
