A critical commentary and paraphrase on the Old and New Testament and the Apocrypha, Volume 2

1 Chronicles 28:15: “Even the weight for the candlesticks of gold, and for the lamps of gold, by weight for every candlestick, and for the lamps thereof: and for the candlesticks of silver by weight, both for the candlestick, and also for the lamps thereof, according to the use of every candlestick.” By this we learn that there were candlesticks of silver, as well as of gold. The former of which were lesser, to be carried in their hands, from place to place, as there was occasion. But the latter were fixed in the sanctuary, and in Solomon’s House were ten in number.
