SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:23 Hizo también en el oratorio dos querubines de madera de oliva, cada uno de altura de diez codos.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 23. And within the oracle he made two cherubim [of] olive tree , etc.] Or of the oil tree, as in ( Isaiah 41:19); (see Nehemiah 8:15); for there are other trees besides olives, out of which oil is pressed, as pine trees, cypress trees, etc. and which some think are here meant; though the Targum interprets it of the olive tree: these cherubim are different from those made by Moses, and were besides them; these were larger than they; these were made of olive wood, they of gold; these stood on the floor of the house, they at the two ends of the mercy seat, and were made out of it, and were with it in this holy place in Solomon’s temple: these two cherubim may be emblems of the angels in their greatness and glory, who are always in the presence of God, behold his face, and wait to do his will; or it may be rather of the two witnesses, said to be the two olive trees standing before the God of the whole earth, ( Revelation 11:3,4); who have boldness to enter into the holiest of all, and have sight and knowledge of the mysteries of the ark and mercy seat; have their commission from heaven, and speak according to the oracles of God; these are said to be of image work, ( 2 Chronicles 3:10); that is, of various forms, as the thee of a man, a lion, an ox, and eagle, ( Ezekiel 1:10). Dr. Lightfoot thinks they resembled the two Testaments, which in their beginning and end reach the two sides of the world, the creation and the last judgment, and in the middle do sweetly join the one to the other: [each] ten cubits high ; half as high as the most holy place; emblems either of the high angels, those thrones, dominions, principalities, and powers, or of men of uncommon size as to their gifts and grace.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 15-38 - See what was typified by this temple. 1. Christ is the true Temple. In him dwells all the fulness of the Godhead; in him meet all God' spiritual Israel; through him we have access with confidence to God. 2 Every believer is a living temple, in whom the Spirit of God dwells 1Co 3:16. This living temple is built upon Christ as its Foundation and will be perfect in due time. 3. The gospel church is the mystica temple. It grows to a holy temple in the Lord, enriched and beautifie with the gifts and graces of the Spirit. This temple is built firm upon a Rock. 4. Heaven is the everlasting temple. There the church wil be fixed. All that shall be stones in that building, must, in the present state of preparation, be fitted and made ready for it. Le sinners come to Jesus as the living Foundation, that they may be buil on him, a part of this spiritual house, consecrated in body and soul to the glory of God __________________________________________________________________
