Chapter 3

Chapter Overview

The place and time of his building the temple, verse 1, 2. The dimension and ornaments of it, verse 3-9.
The cherubim in the most holy place, verse 10-13.
The veil, verse 14.
The two pillars, verse 15-17.

Verse 1
Moriah - It was the belief of the ancient Jews, that the temple was built on that very place, where Abraham offered up Issac.

Verse 3
Instructed - By David, and by the Spirit of God. The measure - According to he measure which was first fixed.

Verse 4
The height - This being a kind of turret to the building.

Verse 5
Greater house - The holy place, which was thrice as large as the holy of holies.

Verse 9
Nails - Each of the nails, screws, or pins, by which the golden plates were fastened to the walls, weighed, or rather was worth, fifty shekels, workmanship and all. Upper chambers - Rather, the roof.

Verse 10
Image work - Or, of moveable work, not fixed to the mercy-seat, as the Mosaical cherubim, but in a moving posture. It seems, they were designed to represent the angels, who attend the Divine Majesty.

Verse 13
Inward - Heb. towards the house, that is, the most holy house.

Verse 14
The veil - The inner veil before the most holy place. This denoted the darkness of that dispensation and the distance at which the worshippers were kept. But at the death of Christ this veil was rent; for thro' him we are brought nigh, and have boldness, or liberty, not only to look, but to enter into the holiest.

Verse 17
Jachin - That is, He shall establish. Boaz - That is, In it is strength.
