The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire Bible1 Chronicles 28:15
Even the weight for the candlesticks of gold, and for their
lamps of gold, by weight for every candlestick, and for the lamps
These candlesticks were ten, and each had seven lamps,
and were placed five on one side the Mosaic candlestick, and five on
the other, as say the Jews, see (1 Kings 7:49) , and the weight of gold for
each candlestick, according to the above writer F20, was one hundred
pounds; and for both candlesticks and lamps, David, by the Spirit of
God, was directed to give:
and for the candlesticks of silver, by weight, both for the
candlestick, and also for the lamps thereof, according to the use of
the weight of silver for them was fixed; of these
nowhere else read. Kimchi thinks these were for the chambers of the
priests, to give them light when they ate and lay there.
