Treasury of Scripture

And he set all the people, every man having his weapon in his hand, from the right side of the temple to the left side of the temple, along by the altar and the temple, by the king round about.

2 Kings 11:11
And the guard stood, every man with his weapons in his hand, round about the king, from the right corner of the temple to the left corner of the temple, along by the altar and the temple.

along by

2 Chronicles 6:12
And he stood before the altar of the LORD in the presence of all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands:

Exodus 40:6
And thou shalt set the altar of the burnt offering before the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.









(10) And he set all the people.--2Kings 9:11 : "And the Couriers stood." By "the people," the chronicler obviously means, not the mass of the congregation, but the armed body who were to "compass the king round about, every man with his weapons in his hand" (2Chronicles 23:7).

His weapon.--Or, his missiles, arms. LXX., ?????. (Comp. 2Chronicles 32:5.) Kings has a commoner word. The remainder of the verse is identical with its parallel.

Along by.--Towards the altar.

Verse 10. - All the people; i.e., again, all those, not being Levites and priests, who had been trusted to assist. The parallel (ver. 11) summarizes them under the name the guard. It may be just noted, in passing, that, while the Hebrew text has in both places "shoulder," i.e. for the "side" of this verse, and the "corner" of the parallel, the Revised Version has harmonized the rendering, electing the rendering side. From the right side of the temple to the left side. This is equivalent to saying, those composing the guard were placed on the south and north sides. Along by the altar. This was the altar of burnt offerings in front of the perch, and close by which the young "king stood at his pillar," or on his pedestal (ver. 13), the rows of the guard bristling with weapons before and behind and round about him.
