Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 10:16-17

_ _ two hundred targets, six hundred shekels — These defensive arms were anciently made of wood and covered with leather; those were covered with fine gold. 600 shekels (about $6,000) were used in the gilding of each target — 300 (about $1800) for each shield. They were intended for the state armory of the palace (see 1 Kings 14:26).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 10:14-29.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 10:16

Targets — For pomp and magnificence, and to be carried before him, by his guard, when he went abroad. The Roman magistrates had rods and axes carried before them, in token of their power to correct the bad: but Solomon shields and targets, to shew he took more pleasure in his power to defend and protect the good.
