SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:15 Este hizo dos columnas de bronce, la altura de cada cual era de dieciocho codos; y rodeaba a una y a otra columna un hilo de doce codos.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 7:15 Verse 15. He cast two pillars-eighteen cubits high] That is, about thirty feet in English measure.
A line of twelve cubits] In circumference. It would be difficult even now to procure a founder who could cast such massive pillars, whether solid or hollow.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 15. For he cast two pillars of brass, eighteen cubits high apiece , etc.] In ( 2 Chronicles 3:15) they are said to be thirty five cubits high, which must be understood of the length or height of them both; and whereas that would allow but seventeen cubits and a half to a pillar, either the round number of eighteen is used, or half a cubit in each may be allowed, either for the base or pedestal into which they were put; or the chapiter at the top of them, into which they might go such a length, and so only what was seen is described: and a line of twelve cubits did compass either of them about ; that was the circumference of them, and therefore their diameter must be four cubits.
Eupolemus, an Heathen writer speaks of these pillars, but he makes the circuit of them to be but ten cubits; and says they were equal in height with the temple, and stood on the right and left, and were made of brass, and covered with gold, the thickness of a finger.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 13-47 - The two brazen pillars in the porch of the temple, some think, were to teach those that came to worship, to depend upon God only, for strengt and establishment in all their religious exercises. "Jachin," God wil fix this roving mind. It is good that the heart be established with grace. "Boaz," In him is our strength, who works in us both to will an to do. Spiritual strength and stability are found at the door of God' temple, where we must wait for the gifts of grace, in use of the mean of grace. Spiritual priests and spiritual sacrifices must be washed in the laver of Christ's blood, and of regeneration. We must wash often for we daily contract pollution. There are full means provided for ou cleansing; so that if we have our lot for ever among the unclean it will be our own fault. Let us bless God for the fountain opened by the sacrifice of Christ for sin and for uncleanness.
