1 Kings 7:47-48

Context
7:47 Solomon left all these items unweighed; there were so many of them they did not weigh the bronze. 1 

7:48 Solomon also made all these items for the Lord’s temple: the gold altar, the gold table on which was kept the Bread of the Presence, 2 

1 tn Heb “Solomon left all the items, due to their very great abundance; the weight of the bronze was not sought.”

2 tn Heb “the bread of the face [or presence].” Many recent English versions employ “the bread of the Presence,” although this does not convey much to the modern reader.

sn This bread was viewed as a perpetual offering to God and was regarded as holy. See Lev 24:5-9.
