Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 7:15-22.


1 Kings 7:21

_ _ Jachin and ... Boaz — These names were symbolical, and indicated the strength and stability — not so much of the material temple, for they were destroyed along with it (Jeremiah 52:17), as of the spiritual kingdom of God, which was embodied in the temple.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 7:13-47.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 7:21

Jachin — Jachin signifies he; That is, God shall establish, his temple, and church, and people: and Boaz signifies, in it, or rather, in him (to answer the he in the former name) is strength. So these pillars being eminently strong and stable, were types of that strength which was in God, and would be put forth by God for the defending and establishing of his temple and people, if they were careful to keep the conditions required by God on their parts.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Kings 7:21

And he set up the pillars in the (l) porch of the temple: and he set up the right pillar, and called the name thereof (m) Jachin: and he set up the left pillar, and called the name thereof (n) Boaz.

(l) Which was in the inner court between the temple and the oracle.

(m) That is, he will stablish, that is, his promise toward this house.

(n) That is, in strength: meaning the power of it will continue.
