Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 7:22


7:20 The belly - So he calls the middle part of the chapiter, whichjetted farthest out. Two hundred - They are said to be ninety and sixon a side of a pillar; in one row and in all an hundred,#Jer 52:23|, four great pomegranates between the several checker - worksbeing added to the first ninety six. And it must needs be granted, thatthere were as many on the other side of the pillar, or in the other row,which makes them two hundred upon a pillar, as is here said, and fourhundred upon both pillars, as they are numbered, #2Chron 4:13|.

7:21 Jachin - Jachin signifies he; That is, God shallestablish, his temple, and church, and people: and Boaz signifies,in it, or rather, in him (to answer the he in the former name)is strength. So these pillars being eminently strong and stable, weretypes of that strength which was in God, and would be put forth by God forthe defending and establishing of his temple and people, if they werecareful to keep the conditions required by God on their parts.

7:23 A Sea - He melted the brass, and cast it into the form of a greatvessel, for its vastness called a sea, which name is given by theHebrews to all great collections of waters. The use of it was for thepriests to wash their hands and feet, or other things as occasion required,with the water which they drew out of it.

7:24 Knops - Carved or molten figures: for this word signifiesfigures or pictures of all sorts. Ten, &c. - So there were three hundredin all. Cast - Together with the sea; not carved. Two rows - It seemsdoubtful whether the second row had ten in each cubit, and so there werethree hundred more; or, whether the ten were distributed into five in eachrow.
