And the basins
Or "bowls"; these are omitted, ( 2 Kings 25:15 ) ; they were of gold, ( 1 Kings 7:50 ) ; and the firepans;
or "censers"; these were those of gold, which belonged to the golden altar, ( 1 Kings 7:50 ) ; and the bowls;
or "basins"; there were a hundred of them made of gold, ( 2 Chronicles 4:8 ) ; and the cauldrons;
or "pots"; these are not mentioned, ( 2 Kings 25:15 ) ; what they should be, that were either of gold or silver, cannot be said: and the candlesticks;
of which there were ten in number, made of pure gold, five on the right side, and five on the left, before the oracle, ( 1 Kings 7:49 ) ; and the spoons;
which were also of gold, ( 1 Kings 7:50 ) ; and the cups:
the word is rendered "bowls", to cover withal, ( Exodus 25:29 ) ; it was some kind of instrument or vessel used about the shewbread table, made of pure gold; according to Jarchi, these were little golden forks, upon which they placed the shewbread, to keep it from moulding; according to the Misna F3, there were four of them: [that] which [was] of gold [in] gold, and [that] which [was] of silver
[in] silver, took the captain of the guard away;
that is, everything that was of gold or silver he took away; the golden things by themselves, and the silver things by themselves, as some think.
