Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 6:24


6:22 Whole house - Not only the oracle, but all the holy place.The altar - the altar of incense, which was set in the holy place close bythe doors of the oracle. With gold - As before he overlaid it with cedar.

6:23 Cherubim - Besides those two made by Moses, #Exod 25:18|,which were of gold, and far less than these. The Heathens set up imagesof their gods, and worshipped them. These were designed to represent theservants and attendants of the God of Israel, the holy angels, not tobe worshipped themselves, but to shew how great he is whom we worship.
