And the two olive trees by it
Which are explained in, (See Gill on
Zechariah 4:14): one upon the right [side] of the
bowl, and the other upon the left [side] thereof;
in ( Zechariah 4:11 ) they
are said to be on the right and left sides of the bowl or
candlestick, which is the same; for the situation of them was
alike, with respect to the one and the other: according to
Fortunatus Scacchus, these two olive trees did not arise out of
the earth, and the top of the candlestick; but out of the base of
the candlestick, one on the right hand of the bowl, which hung in
the middle of the candlestick; and the other on the left
F15, of which he has given the figure.
