2 Chronicles Chapter 3

2 Chronicles 3:1
3:1 Then Solomon began to build the house of the LORD at
    Jerusalem in mount {a} Moriah, where [the LORD] appeared
    unto David his father, in the place that David had prepared
    in the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite.

    (a) Which is the mountain where Abraham was thought to have
        sacrificed his son, Genesis 22:2.

2 Chronicles 3:3
3:3 Now these [are the things wherein] Solomon was instructed
    for the building of the house of God. The length by cubits
    after the first {b} measure [was] threescore cubits, and the
    breadth twenty cubits.

    (b) According to the whole length of the temple,

2 Chronicles 3:4
3:4 And the porch that [was] in the front [of the house], the
    length [of it was] according to the {c} breadth of the
    house, twenty cubits, and the height [was] an {d} hundred
    and twenty: and he overlaid it within with pure gold.

    (c) It contained as much as the breadth of the temple did,
        1 Kings 6:3.
    (d) From the foundation to the top: for in the book of the
        kings mention is made from the foundation to the first

2 Chronicles 3:6
3:6 And he garnished the house with precious stones for beauty:
    and the gold [was] gold of {e} Parvaim.

    (e) Some think it is Peru.

2 Chronicles 3:14
3:14 And he made the {f} vail [of] blue, and purple, and
     crimson, and fine linen, and wrought cherubims thereon.

     (f) Which separated the temple from the most holy place.

2 Chronicles 3:15
3:15 Also he made before the house two pillars of {g} thirty and
     five cubits high, and the chapiter that [was] on the top of
     each of them [was] five cubits.

     (g) Every one was eighteen cubits long, but the half cubit
         could not be seen, for it was hid in the roundness of
         the chapiter, and therefore he gives to every one only
         17 and a half.

2 Chronicles 3:16
3:16 And he made chains, [as] in the oracle, and put [them] on
     the heads of the pillars; and made an {h} hundred
     pomegranates, and put [them] on the chains.

     (h) For every pillar a hundred, read 1 Kings 7:20.
