    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:4

    E hizo a la Casa ventanas anchas por dentro , y estrechas por fuera .

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 6:4

    Verse 4.
    Windows of narrow lights.] The Vulgate says, fenestras obliquas, oblique windows; but what sort of windows could such be? The Hebrew is µymfa µypqŤ ynwlj challoney shekuphim atumim, windows to look through, which shut. Probably latticed windows: windows through which a person within could see well; but a person without, nothing. Windows, says the Targum, which were open within and shut without. Does he mean windows with shutters; or, are we to understand, with the Arabic, windows opening wide within, and narrow on the outside; such as we still see in ancient castles? This sense our margin expresses. We hear nothing of glass or any other diaphanous substance.

    Windows, perhaps originally windore, a door to let the wind in, in order to ventilate the building, and through which external objects might be discerned.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 4. And for the house he made windows of narrow lights .] Or “open, shut” f90 , which could be both, having shutters to them, to open or shut at pleasure; windows which they could open, and look through at them, or shut when they pleased; the Targum is, “open within, and shut without;” or, as others understand it, they were wide within, and narrow without; by being narrow without, the house was preserved from bad weather, as well as could not so easily be looked into by those without; and by being broader within, the light that was let in spread itself within the house; which some interpret only of the holy place, the most holy place having, as they suppose, no windows in it, which yet is not certain: now these windows may denote the word and ordinances of the church of God, whereby light is communicated to men; which in the present state is but narrow or small, in comparison of the new Jerusalem church state, and the ultimate glory; and especially so it was under the legal dispensation, which was very obscure; (see Song of Solomon 2:9) ( Isaiah 55:8).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-10 - The
    temple is called the house of the Lord, because it was directed an modelled by him, and was to be employed in his service. This gave in the beauty of holiness, that it was the house of the Lord, which wa far beyond all other beauties. It was to be the temple of the God of peace, therefore no iron tool must be heard; quietness and silence sui and help religious exercises. God's work should be done with much car and little noise. Clamour and violence often hinder, but never furthe the work of God. Thus the kingdom of God in the heart of man grows u in silence, Mr 5:27.
