Ezra 1:10 Meaning and Commentary

Ezra 1:10

Thirty basins of gold
Cups or dishes with covers, as the word seems to signify; but, according to Jarchi and Aben Ezra, they were vessels in which the blood of sacrifices was received, and out of which it was sprinkled on the altar:

silver basins of a second sort four hundred and ten;
perhaps lesser than the other, however not so valuable, being of silver; in the Apocrypha:

``And this was the number of them; A thousand golden cups, and a thousand of silver, censers of silver twenty nine, vials of gold thirty, and of silver two thousand four hundred and ten, and a thousand other vessels.'' (1 Esdras 2:13)

the number is 2410; and in the letter of Cyrus, before referred to, it is 2400:

and other vessels a thousand;
which are not particularly mentioned; Junius and Tremellius render the words,

other vessels by thousands,
there being near 3000 that are not described.
