1 Kings 7:21 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The brazen pillars of the porch (compare 2 Chronicles 3:15-17). - He formed the two brazen pillars, which were erected, according to 2 Chronicles 3:15, "before the (temple) house, i.e., in front of the hall of the temple. One was eighteen cubits high, and a thread of twelve cubits surrounded (spanned) the other pillar." The statement of the height of the one pillar and that of the circumference of the other is to be understood as an abbreviated expression, signifying that the height and thickness mentioned applied to the one as well as to the other, or that they were alike in height and circumference. According to the Chronicles, they were thirty-five cubits long; which many expositors understand as signifying that the length of the two together was thirty-five cubits, so that each one was only 17 1/2 cubits long, for which the full number 18 is substituted in our text. But this mode of reconciling the discrepancy is very improbable, and is hardly in harmony with the words of the Chronicles. The number 35 evidently arose from confounding the numeral letters יח equals 18 with לה equals 35. The correctness of the number 18 is confirmed by 2 Kings 25:17 and Jeremiah 52:21. The pillars were hollow, the brass being four finger-breadths in thickness (Jeremiah 52:21); and they were cast in the Jordan valley (1 Kings 7:46).
