1 Kings 7:48Context
1 tn Heb “twenty cubits” (this measurement occurs three times in this verse).
2 tn Heb “with plated gold” (or perhaps, “with pure gold”).
3 tn Heb “he plated [the] altar of cedar.”
4 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.
