|Phrase from KJV (Help)
||Heb. cors. 1Ki 4:22; *marg:; 2Ch 2:10|
||"""Twenty thousand baths of oil"" are mentioned in Chronicles; and the Syriac, Arabic, and Septuagint also have here ""twenty thousand measures."" But as barley and wine are also spoken of there, it is probable that the wheat mentioned here, and the small quantity of fine oil, were intended for the use of Hiram's own family, while that in Chronicles was for his workmen."|
