Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 6:5

_ _ 1 Kings 6:5-10. The chambers thereof.

_ _ against the wall of the house he built chambers — On three sides, there were chambers in three stories, each story wider than the one beneath it, as the walls were narrowed or made thinner as they ascended, by a rebate being made, on which the beams of the side floor rested, without penetrating the wall. These chambers were approached from the right-hand side, in the interior of the under story, by a winding staircase of stone, which led to the middle and upper stories.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 6:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 6:5

Against the wall — The beams of the chambers were not fastened into the wall, but leaned upon the buttresses of the wall. Chambers — For the laying the priests garments, and other utensils belonging to the temple, therein. Round about — On all the sides except the east, where the porch was; and except some very small passages for the light. And yet these lights might be in the five uppermost cubits of the wall, which were above all these chambers, for these were only fifteen cubits high, and the wall was twenty cubits high. Chambers — Galleries which encompassed all the chambers; and which were necessary for passage to them.
