And [then] he built chambers against all the house five cubits
Which some understand of the same chambers in ( 1 Kings 6:5 1 Kings 6:6 ) ; here made mention of again for the sake of giving the height of them, not before given; but they were built against, or upon the wall of the house, these against, or rather upon the whole house itself; and are the chambers referred to, (See Gill on 1 Kings 6:2); which consisting of three stories of ninety cubits, raised the whole house to an equal height with the porch, ( 2 Chronicles 3:4 ) ; as is there intended F24; these are the upper chambers in ( 2 Chronicles 3:9 ) ; and they rested on the house [with] timber of cedar; or on the timber of cedar, the beams of cedar, with which the house was covered, as in ( 1 Kings 6:9 ) ; on these the chambers rested, being built upon them; and in one of these chambers the disciples might be after Christ's ascension, ( Acts 1:13 ) .
