SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:22 Y la despensa de Salomón era cada día treinta coros de flor de harina, y sesenta coros de harina.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 4:22 Verse 22. Solomon's provision for one day:- Of fine flour . . . . . . 30 measures, or cors.
Of meal . . . . . . . . . . 60 ditto.
Stall-fed oxen. . . . . . 10 Ditto from the pasture. . 20 Sheep . . . . . . . . . . . . 100; with harts, roebucks, fallow deer, and fat fowls.
The rk cor was the same as the homer, and contained nearly seventy-six gallons, wine measure, according to Bishop Cumberland.
Sheep] ax tson, comprehending both sheep and goats.
Harts] lyam meaiyal, the deer.
Roebucks] ybx tsebi, the gazal, antelope, or wild goat.
Fallow deer] rwmjy yachmur, the buffalo. See the notes on Deut. xii. 15; xiv. 5.
Fatted fowl.] µyswba µyrbrb barburim abusim, I suppose, means all the wild fowls in season during each month. Michaelis derives µyrbrb barburim from arb bara, which in Chaldee, Syriac, and Arabic, signifies a field, a desert; all that is without the cities and habitations of men: hence arb twyj cheyvath bara, wild beasts, Dan. ii. 38, rb rwt tor bar, wild bull; and therefore barburim may signify creatures living in the fields, woods, and deserts, which are taken by hunting, and opposed to those which are domesticated; and, consequently, may include beasts as well as fowls. Many have translated the word capons; but, query, was any such thing known among the ancient Jews? Solomon's table, therefore, was spread with all the necessaries and delicacies which the house or the field could afford.
But how immense must the number of men have been who were fed daily at the palace of the Israelitish king! Vilalpandus computes the number to be not less than forty-eight thousand, six hundred; and Calvisius makes, by estimation from the consumption of food, fifty-four thousand! These must have included all his guards, each of whom received a ration from the king's store.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 22. And Solomon’s provision for one day was thirty measures of fine flour , etc.] The measure here used was the “corus”, or “cor”, the same with the homer, which was equal to ten ephahs, and, according to Bishop Cumberland f48 , held seventy five wine gallons and five pints, and somewhat more; by which may be known how many gallons of fine flour these thirty measures held, which were all consumed in one day: and threescore measures of meal : sixty measures of a coarser sort, for the servants, not so finely dressed; the same measure is here used as before; and it is observed by some, that one cor is equivalent to six hundred forty eight Roman pounds, and allowing to one man two pounds a day for his food, there would be food enough for 29,160 men out of 90 times 648, or 58,320 pounds f49 . Others exaggerate the account; Vilalpandus says it would have sufficed 48,600 persons; Seth Calvisius 54,000, and Salianus 70,000 f50 ; the Jews say that he had 60,000 that ate at his table; that is, who were maintained at his court.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 20-28 - Never did the crown of Israel shine so bright, as when Solomon wore it He had peace on all sides. Herein, his kingdom was a type of the Messiah's; for to Him it is promised that he shall have the heathen for his inheritance, and that princes shall worship him. The spiritual peace, and joy, and holy security, of all the faithful subjects of the Lord Jesus, were typified by that of Israel. The kingdom of God is not as Solomon's was, meat and drink, but, what is infinitely better righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. The vast number of his attendants, and the great resort to him, are shown by the provisio daily made. Herein Christ far outdoes Solomon, that he feeds all his subjects, not with the bread that perishes, but with that which endure to eternal life.
