7:3 The roof above the beams supported by the pillars was also made of cedar; there were forty-five beams, fifteen per row.
1 Kings 7:7Context
7:7 He also made a throne room, called “The Hall of Judgment,” where he made judicial decisions. 1 It was paneled with cedar from the floor to the rafters. 2
1 tn Heb “and a porch for the throne, where he was making judicial decisions, the Porch of Judgment, he made.”
2 tc The Hebrew text reads, “from the floor to the floor.” The second occurrence of the term הַקַּרְקָע (haqqarqa’, “the floor”) is probably an error; one should emend to הַקּוֹרוֹת (haqqorot, “the rafters”). See 6:16.
