1 Kings 6:25 Meaning and Commentary

1 Kings 6:25

And the other cherub [was] ten cubits
That is, its wings stretched out measured so many cubits, as did those of the other:

both the cherubim [were] of one measure, and of one size;
of the same height and stature, of the same breadth of their wings, and of the same bulk of their bodies; they were of "image work"; ( 2 Chronicles 3:10 ) ; very probably in the form of men: and this uniformity may denote the perfect agreement of angels; or else the consent of the true faithful witnesses of Christ in all ages, who have all agreed in the person, office, and grace of Christ, as represented by the mercy seat and ark, which these cherubim covered with their wings.

1 Kings 6:25 In-Context

23 In the inner sanctuary he made two cherubim 15 feet high out of olive wood.
24 One wing of the [first] cherub was seven and a half feet long, and the other wing was seven and a half feet long. The wingspan was 15 feet from tip to tip.
25 The second cherub also was 15 feet; both cherubim had the same size and shape.
26 The first cherub's height was 15 feet and so was the second cherub's.
27 Then he put the cherubim inside the inner temple. Since their wings were spread out, the first one's wing touched [one] wall while the second cherub's wing touched the other wall, and in the middle of the temple their wings were touching wing to wing.
