Treasury of Scripture

And Solomon gave Hiram twenty thousand measures of wheat for food to his household, and twenty measures of pure oil: thus gave Solomon to Hiram year by year.

measures [heb] cors.

1 Kings 4:22
And Solomon's provision for one day was thirty measures of fine flour, and threescore measures of meal,

2 Chronicles 2:10
And, behold, I will give to thy servants, the hewers that cut timber, twenty thousand measures of beaten wheat, and twenty thousand measures of barley, and twenty thousand baths of wine, and twenty thousand baths of oil.









(11) Twenty thousand measures of wheat.--This agrees well enough with the calculation in 1Kings 4:22 of ninety measures a day--something over 32,000 a year--for Solomon's Court, presumably greater than that of Hiram. But the "twenty measures of oil "--even of the pure refined oil--is so insignificant in comparison, that it seems best to adopt the Greek reading here (agreeing with 2Chronicles 2:10, and with Josephus) of 20,000 baths, or 2,000 cors, of oil.

Verse 11. - And Solomon gave Hiram twenty thousand measures [Heb. cots. See 1 Kings 4:22] of wheat for food [מכלת for מאכלת] to his household [Rawlinson remarks that this was much less than Solomon's own consumption (1 Kings 4:22). But he did not undertake to feed Hiram's entire court, but merely to make an adequate return for the timber and labour he received. And the consumption of fine flour in Solomon's household was only about 11,000 cors per annum] and twenty measures of pure oil [lit., beaten oil, i.e., such as was obtained by pounding the olives, when not quite ripe, in a mortar. This was both of whiter colour and purer flavour, and also gave a clearer light, than that furnished by the ripe olives in the press. See the authorities quoted in Bahr's Symbolik, 1. p. 419]: thus gave Solomon to Hiram year by year [probably so long as the building lasted or timber was furnished. But the agreement may have been for a still longer period.]
