Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 7:49

_ _ candlesticks of pure gold — made, probably, according to the model of that in the tabernacle, which, along with the other articles of furniture, were deposited with due honor, as sacred relics, in the temple. But these seem not to have been used in the temple service; for Solomon made new lavers, tables, and candlesticks, ten of each. (See further regarding the dimensions and furniture of the temple, in 2 Chronicles 3:1-5:14).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 7:48-51.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 7:49

Candlesticks — Which were ten, according to the number of the tables, whereas Moses made but one: whereby might be signified the progress of the light of sacred truth, which was now grown clearer than it was in Moses's time, and should shine brighter and brighter until the perfect day of gospel light. Pure gold — Of massy and fine gold. The oracle — In the holy place. Flowers — Wrought upon the candlesticks, as it had formerly been.
