      1  The altar of brass.
     2  The molten sea upon twelve oxen.
     6  The ten lavers, candlesticks, and tables.
     9  The courts, and the instruments of brass.
    19  The instruments of gold.
    
    
    VERSE 1
    - an altar.
       * 2Ch 1:5 Ex 27:1-8 1Ki 8:22,64; 9:25 2Ki 16:14,15 Eze 43:13-17
    
    
    VERSE 2 
     - a molten sea.
       * Ex 30:18-21 1Ki 7:23 Zec 13:1 Tit 3:5 Re 7:14
    - brim to brim.  Heb. his brim to his brim.
    
    
    VERSE 3 
     - And under.
       * 1Ki 7:24-26 Eze 1:10; 10:14 1Co 9:9,10 Re 4:7
    - oxen.
      In the parallel passage of Kings, instead of {bekarim,}
      "oxen," we have {peka‹m,} "knops," in the form of colocynths.
      (See on 1 Ki 18 6:18, and 2 Ki 39 4:39;) which last is supposed by
      able critics to be the reading which ought to received be
      here; {bekarim,} "oxen," being a mistake for {peka‹m,}
      "knops."  Houbigant, however, contends that the words in both
      places are right; but that {bakar} does not signify an ox
      here, but a large kind of grape, according to its meaning in
      Arabic.  But Dr. A. Clarke states that {bakar,} or {bakarat,}
      has no such meaning in Arabic, though the phrase {aino
      'lbikri,} or "ox-eye," signifies a species of black grape,
      very large, and of incredible sweetness; that consequently the
      criticism of this great man is not solid; and that the
      likeliest method of reconciling the two places is to suppose a
      change in the letters as above.
    
    
    VERSE 4 
     - It stood.
       * Mt 16:18 Eph 2:20 Re 21:14
    - three.
       * Mt 28:19,20 Mr 16:15 Lu 24:46,47 Ac 9:15
    
    
    VERSE 5 
     - with flowers of lilies.  or, like a lily flower.  three
      thousand baths.
      In the parallel passage, it is said to hold only two thousand
      baths;  which some think may be reconciled by supposing that
      the quantity of water which was commonly in it was 2,000
      baths, but that, if filled up to the top, it would hold 3,000.
      But, as we have already seen that the Babylonish cubit was
      less than that of the ancient Hebrews, it might be the same
      with measures of capacity; so that 2,000 of the ancient Jewish
      baths might have been equal to 3,000 of those used after the
      captivity.  The Targum cuts the knot:  "It received 3,000
      baths of dry measure, and held 2,000 of liquid measure."  See
      1 Ki 26 7:26.
    
       * 1Ki 7:26

      50 7:50, "The hinges also of the doors of the inner house," etc.;
      the word {pothoth,} "hinges," being mistaken for {paithach,}
      "an entry" or "door-way."
