Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 6:3

_ _ the porch — or portico, extended across the whole front (see on 2 Chronicles 3:4).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 6:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 6:3

The porch — In the front of, or entrance into the house, 2 Chronicles 3:4, being a portico, a walk or gallery, at one end of the building (from side to side.) And the measures of this were harmonious also. For twenty to ten (the length of the portico to the breadth of it) is double, or as two to one. And, if the height within, be the same with that of the house, that is thirty; it will be to the length of it, as three to two; and to its breadth, as three to one. Or, if we take in the whole height mentioned, 2 Chronicles 3:4, which is one hundred and twenty; there is in this no disproportion: being to its length as six to one; and to its breadth as twelve to one; especially when this height was conveniently divided into several galleries, one over another, each of which had their due proportions.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
