SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:19 Seis gradas tenía el trono, y lo alto de él era redondo por el respaldo; y por un lado y por la otra tenía apoyos cerca del asiento, junto a los cuales estaban colocados dos leones.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 10:19 Verse 19. The throne was round behind: and there were stays on either side] This description seems to indicate that the throne was in the form of one of our ancient round-topped, two-armed chairs. This throne or chair of state was raised on a platform, the ascent to which consisted of six steps.
What we call stays is in the Hebrew tdy yadoth, hands, which serves to confirm the conjecture above.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 19. The throne had six steps , etc.] Up to the footstool of the throne, which was of gold, ( 2 Chronicles 9:18) and was high, that everyone in court might see him, and the better hear the sentence he gave: and the top of the throne was round behind ; had a semicircle at the top of it, like an alcove: and there were stays on either side on the place of the seat ; or “hands” f244 , such as the arms of a chair, to lean and rest upon: and two lions stood beside the stays ; which were not only ornamental, and for support of the stays, but expressive of majesty, and of undaunted courage and resolution to do justice, and of the danger such expose themselves to, who oppose magistrates in the discharge of their office; and in which Solomon was a type of Christ, the lion of the tribe of Judah; and for the same reasons were the like portraits on the steps, as follows.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 14-29 - Solomon increased his wealth. Silver was nothing accounted of. Such is the nature of worldly wealth, plenty of it makes it the less valuable much more should the enjoyment of spiritual riches lessen our esteem of all earthly possessions. If gold in abundance makes silver to be despised, shall not wisdom, and grace, and the foretastes of heaven which are far better than gold, make gold to be lightly esteemed? Se in Solomon's greatness the performance of God's promise, and let it encourage us to seek first the righteousness of God's kingdom. This wa he, who, having tasted all earthly enjoyments, wrote a book, to sho the vanity of all worldly things, the vexation of spirit that attend them, and the folly of setting our hearts upon them: and to recommen serious godliness, as that which will do unspeakably more to make u happy, that all the wealth and power he was master of; and, through the grace of God, it is within our reach __________________________________________________________________
