Bible Commentary for 1 Kings 8:7

Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 8:7


8:5 Sacrificing - When the ark was seated in its place: for althoughthey might in the way offer some sacrifices, as David did; yet that wasnot a proper season to offer so many sacrifices as could not be numbered.This is more particularly related below, ver.#62|,63,64, which is heresignified by way of anticipation.

8:6 Cherubim - Of Solomon's new made cherubim, not of theMosaic cherubim, which were far less, and unmovably fixed to the ark,#Exod 37:7|,8, and therefore together with the ark, were put underthe wings of these cherubim.

8:8 Drew out - Not wholly, which was expressly forbidden,#Exod 25:15|, Numb 4:6, but in part.Seen out - In the most holy place, which is oft called by way of eminency,the holy place, and the Hebrew words rendered before the oracle,may be as well rendered, within the oracle. And these staves were leftin this posture, that the high - priest might hereby be certainly guided tothat very place where he, was one day in a year to sprinkle blood, and tooffer incense before the ark, which otherwise he might mistake in thatdark place, where the ark was wholly covered with the wings of the greatcherubim, which stood between him and the ark when he entered in.

8:9 Nothing - Strictly and properly: but in a more large sense,the pot of manna, and Aaron's rod were also in it, #Heb 9:4|,that is, by it, in the most holy place, before the ark of thetestimony, where God commanded Moses to put them.
