SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:9 Labró pues la Casa, y la acabó; y cubrió la Casa de labrados y de maderas de cedro puestas por orden.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 6:9 Verse 9. Covered the house with beams and boards of cedar.] The Eastern custom is very different from ours: we ceil with plaster, and make our floors of wood; they make their floors of plaster or painted tiles, and make their ceilings of wood. But it may not be improper to observe that, in ancient times, our buildings were somewhat similar. Westminster Hall is a proof of this.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 9. So he built the house, and finished it , etc.] The body of it, the walls of the holy and most holy place, with the chambers on the sides of them, and the porch at the end that led into them: and covered the house with beams and boards of cedar ; with hollow boards, as the Targum, which formed an arch ceiling to it, and made it look very grand and beautiful; and then over them were laid beams and planks of cedar, not properly as a flat roof to it, but rather as a flooring for other buildings; for upon this, as in ( 1 Kings 6:10), there were chambers built.
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.
