SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:11 Y Salomón daba a Hiram veinte mil coros de trigo para el sustento de su familia, y veinte mil coros de aceite limpio; esto daba Salomón a Hiram cada año.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 5:11 Verse 11. And Solomon gave Hiram, &c.] The information in this verse of the annual stipend paid to Hiram, is deficient, and must be supplied out of 2 Chron. ii. 10. Here twenty thousand measures of wheat, and twenty measures of pure oil, is all that is promised: there, twenty thousand measures of beaten wheat, twenty thousand measures of barley, twenty thousand baths of wine, and twenty thousand baths of oil, is the stipulation; unless we suppose the first to be for Hiram's own family, the latter for his workmen. Instead of twenty measures of oil, the Syriac, Arabic, and Septuagint, have twenty thousand measures, as in Chronicles.
In 2 Chron., instead of cors of oil, it is baths. The bath was a measure much less than the cor.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 11. And Solomon gave Hiram twenty thousand measures of wheat [for] food to his household , etc.] This measure was the Hebrew measure “cor”, or “corus”, and, according to Bishop Cumberland f80 , its contents were 17,477 solid inches; it was equal to ten ephahs, each of which held two gallons and an half, and the cor held seventy five wine gallons five pints, and somewhat more; according to some f81 , what it held was equal to six hundred forty eight Roman pounds; so that twenty thousand of them contained 12,960,000 pounds of wheat: and twenty measures of pure oil ; squeezed out of the olives without breaking them; the same kind of measure is here expressed as before, and the quantity answered to 12,960 Roman pounds; another writer reckons a cor to contain 1080 Roman pounds; so that Hiram had every year 21,600 pounds of oil. In ( 2 Chronicles 2:10), it is twenty thousand baths of oil now not to take notice that the measures are different, a bath was but the tenth part of a cor, reference is had to different things; here the writer relates what was given to Hiram for his own family, there what was given to the workmen, where several other things are mentioned besides these: thus gave Solomon to Hiram year by year : so long as the building lasted, and the workmen were employed; but Abarbinel thinks that he gave it to him as long as he lived, out of his great munificence and liberality.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 10-18 - The temple was chiefly built by the riches and labour of Gentiles which typified their being called into the church. Solomon commanded and they brought costly stones for the foundation. Christ, who is lai for a Foundation, is a chosen and precious Stone. We should lay ou foundation firm, and bestow most pains on that part of our religio which lies out of the sight of men. And happy those who, as livel stones, are built up a spiritual house, for a habitation of God throug the Spirit. Who among us will build in the house of the Lord __________________________________________________________________
