1 Kings 7:18 Meaning and Commentary

1 Kings 7:18

And he made the pillars
Or adorned them in this manner:

and two rows round about upon the one network, to cover the chapiters
that were upon the top, with pomegranates;
that is, there were two rows of figures like pomegranates upon the net or branch work that covered the chapiters that were on the top of the pillars; and Kimchi owns, that some copies so read, on the top of the pillars, instead of pomegranates, though he thinks it a mistake:

and so did he for the other chapiter;
put two rows about that also.

1 Kings 7:18 In-Context

16 He also made two capitals of cast bronze to set on top of the pillars; seven and a half feet was the height of the first capital, and seven and a half feet was also the height of the second capital.
17 The capitals on top of the pillars had gratings of latticework, wreaths made of chainwork-seven for the first capital and seven for the second.
18 He made the pillars with two encircling rows of pomegranates on the one grating to cover the capital on top; he did the same for the second capital.
19 And the capitals on top of the pillars in the portico were shaped like lilies, six feet [high].
20 The capitals on the two pillars were also immediately above the rounded surface next to the grating, and 200 pomegranates were in rows encircling each capital.
