John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 7:20

The belly — So he calls the middle part of the chapiter, which jetted farthest out. Two hundred — They are said to be ninety and six on a side of a pillar; in one row and in all an hundred, Jeremiah 52:23, four great pomegranates between the several checker — works being added to the first ninety six. And it must needs be granted, that there were as many on the other side of the pillar, or in the other row, which makes them two hundred upon a pillar, as is here said, and four hundred upon both pillars, as they are numbered, 2 Chronicles 4:13.
