1 Kings 7:50 Meaning and Commentary

1 Kings 7:50

And the bowls
To keep the oil in:

and the snuffers;
to trim the lamps with; though some interpret the word of musical instruments, as the Targum, of psalteries:

and the basins;
which were to receive the blood of the sacrifices; and, Ben Gersom thinks, particularly the blood of those that were brought into the sanctuary, see ( Hebrews 13:11 ) , there were an hundred of them, ( 2 Chronicles 4:8 )

and the spoons;
which held the incense:

and the censers of pure gold;
with which the coals were carried from one altar to another, on which the incense was burnt; not only those but all the other vessels were of pure gold:

and the hinges of gold, [both] for the doors of the inner house, the
most holy place, and for the doors of the house,
to wit,

of the temple;
the holy of holies and the holy place, the hinges of the doors of each, on which they were hung, and turned, were of gold; so grand and magnificent was this edifice, and so liberal Solomon in the building of it.

1 Kings 7:50 In-Context

48 Solomon also made all the furnishings that were in the LORD’s temple: the golden altar; the golden table on which was the bread of the Presence;
49 the lampstands of pure gold (five on the right and five on the left, in front of the inner sanctuary); the gold floral work and lamps and tongs;
50 the pure gold basins, wick trimmers, sprinkling bowls, dishes and censers; and the gold sockets for the doors of the innermost room, the Most Holy Place, and also for the doors of the main hall of the temple.
51 When all the work King Solomon had done for the temple of the LORD was finished, he brought in the things his father David had dedicated—the silver and gold and the furnishings—and he placed them in the treasuries of the LORD’s temple.
