And there were ninety and six pomegranates on a side
Or, "to the wind" F5; to the four winds; towards every corner or wind twenty four, which make up ninety six: [and] all the pomegranates upon the network [were] an hundred round
four, standing upon the four angles, made the ninety six a hundred; in ( 1 Kings 7:20 ) ; they are said to be two hundred; and in ( 2 Chronicles 4:13 ) ; are said to be four hundred upon the two wreaths; which may be accounted for thus, there were two rows of them on each pillar, in every row were a hundred, which made two hundred in one pillar, and four hundred in both. These were the things in the temple carried away in the last captivity.
