(17) Also pure gold for the fleshhooks, and the bowls, and the cups.--Rather, and the forks, and the bowls, and the flagons were (in the schedule or inventory) pure gold. (See Exodus 27:3; 1Samuel 2:13-14.) The bowls were used in lustral sprinkling, the golden flagons in libations (Exodus 25:29; Exodus 37:16; Numbers 4:7 only).

The golden basons.--Tankards, or lidded pitchers (k?phorim): a word only found here and in Ezra 1:10; Ezra 8:27 (among the sacred vessels restored by Cyrus).

By weight.--By the (required) weight. The altar of incense stood within the Holiest (the D?bir, or Adytum; Exodus 40:5).

And gold for the pattern of the chariot of the cherubims, that spread out their wings.--Rather, and for the model of the chariot, that is, the cherubim (he assigned) gold; to wit, for beings out-spreading (their wings) and overshadowing the Ark of the Covenant of Jehovah. The two cherubs lying on the (kapporeth) above the Ark are here called "the chariot," with obvious reference to such passages as Psalm 18:11, where it is said of God, "He charioted on a cherub." (Comp. also Psalm 99:1.) The rest of the verse describes the purpose of the symbolical cherubic figures, in terms borrowed from Exodus 25:20. (Comp. also Ezekiel's vision, called by the Jews "The Chariot," Ezekiel 1)

Verse 17. - It is to be observed that the term basons (פְורִים), which appear to have been covered goblets, is only found here and in Ezra 1:10; Ezra 8:27. 28:11-21 The temple must be a sacred thing, and a type of Christ; it must be framed by Divine teaching. Christ is the true temple, the church is the gospel temple, and heaven the everlasting temple; all are framed according to the Divine counsels, and the plan laid in the Divine wisdom, ordained before the world, for God's glory and our good. David gave this pattern to Solomon, that he might go by rule. Materials were provided for the most costly utensils of the temple. Directions were given which way to look for help in this great undertaking. Be not dismayed; God will help thee, and thou must look up to him in the first place. We may be sure that God, who owned our fathers, and carried them through the services of their day, will, in like manner, never leave us, while he has any work to do in us, or by us. Good work is likely to go on, when all concerned are hearty in furthering it. Let us hope in God's mercy; if we seek him, he will be found of us.
