Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 4:22-23

_ _ Solomon’s provision for one day — not for the king’s table only, but for all connected with the court, including, besides the royal establishment, those of his royal consorts, his principal officers, his bodyguards, his foreign visitors, etc. The quantity of fine floor used is estimated at two hundred forty bushels; that of meal or common flour at four hundred eighty. The number of cattle required for consumption, besides poultry and several kinds of game (which were abundant on the mountains) did not exceed in proportion what is needed in other courts of the East.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 4:20-28.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 4:22

Measures — Heb. Cors: each of which contained ten ephahs. So this provision was sufficient for near three thousand persons. Meal — Of a coarser sort for common use.
