Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Chronicles 2:10

_ _ behold, I will give to thy servants ... beaten wheat — Wheat, stripped of the husk, boiled, and saturated with butter, forms a frequent meal with the laboring people in the East (compare 1 Kings 5:11). There is no discrepancy between that passage and this. The yearly supplies of wine and oil, mentioned in the former, were intended for Huram’s court in return for the cedars sent him; while the articles of meat and drink specified here were for the workmen on Lebanon.

(d) Of "bath" read (1 Kings 7:26). It is also called ephah, but an ephah measures dry things as a bath is a measure for liquids.
