2 Chronicles 4:4 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The two brazen pillars before the house, i.e., before the porch, whose form is more accurately described in 1 Kings 7:15-22. The height of it is here given at thirty-five cubits, while, according to 1 Kings 7:15; 2 Kings 25:17; Jeremiah 52:21, it was only eighteen cubits. The number thirty-five has arisen by confounding יח equals 18 with לה equals 35; see on 1 Kings 7:16. הצּפת (ἁπ. λεγ.) from צפה, overlay, cover, is the hood of the pillar, i.e., the capital, called in 1 Kings 7:16. כּתרת, crown, capital, five cubits high, as in 1 Kings 7:16.
