Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 6:9-10.


1 Kings 6:10

_ _ chambers ... five cubits high — The height of the whole three stories was therefore about fifteen cubits.

_ _ they rested on the house with timber of cedar — that is, because the beams of the side stones rested on the ledges of the temple wall. The wing was attached to the house; it was connected with the temple, without, however, interfering injuriously with the sanctuary [Keil].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 6:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 6:10

Built chambers — The Hebrew words may be properly rendered, He built a roof, a flat and plain roof, over all the house, according to the manner of the Israelitish buildings. The inner roof was arched, 1 Kings 6:9, that it might be the more beautiful, but the outward roof was flat. Five cubits — Above the walls of the temple: that it might be a little higher than the arched roof, which it was designed to cover and secure. They rested — Heb. it rested, namely, the roof. Timber of cedar — Which rested upon the top of the wall, as the chambers, 1 Kings 6:5, rested upon the sides of the wall.
