Bible Commentary for 1 Kings 6:15

Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 6:15


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|.
