    (b) Meaning, under the brim of the sea, 1 Kings 7:24.
    (c) In the length of every cubit were ten heads or knops
        which in all are 300.

    lilies; [and] it received and held {d} three thousand baths.

    (d) In the first book of the kings, 1 Kings 7:26, mention

         given him, as a father; he had the same name as Huram

         father a Tyrian. Some read, for his father, the author
         of this work.

     of God, the golden altar also, and the tables whereon the

     doors of the house of the temple, [were {i} of] gold.

     (i) That is, covered with plates of gold.
