John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 6:21

House — Or, that house, the oracle. Partition — He made a veil, which was a farther partition between the holy, and the most holy; which veil did hang upon these golden chains. Before the oracle — In the outward part of the wall, or partition, which was erected between the oracle and the holy place; which is properly said to be before the oracle, there the veil was hung; and there the chains or bars, or whatsoever it was which fastened the doors of the oracle, were placed. It — The partition; which he here distinguisheth from the house, or the main walls of the house, which he had in the former part of this verse told us were overlaid with gold; and now he affirms much as of the partition.
