(16) The pots also, and the shovels, and the fleshhooks.--"Fleshhooks" (mizl?goth) should apparently be "bowls" (mizr?qoth). (Comp. 2Chronicles 4:1, and 1Kings 7:45.) But in Exodus 27:3, pots and shovels and bowls and fleshhooks are mentioned in succession as utensils of the altar. Perhaps, therefore, both words should be read here and in Kings. LXX., ??? ???? ?????????? ??? ???? ???????????? ??? ???? ??????? ??? ??? ???????? . The Vulg. merely repeats 2Chronicles 4:11 (et lebetes et creagras et phialas). A stop should follow the last; "And all their instruments," &c., being a new sentence.

And all their instruments.--1Kings 7:45, and all these instruments, which appears correct, though the LXX. supports our present reading (????? ?? ????? ??????). "Their instruments" could hardly mean the moulds in which they were cast, as Z?ckler suggests. The moulds would not be made in "polished brass." . . .

Verse 16. - Flesh-hooks. Hebrew, מִזְלָגוח, occurring twice in Exodus (Exodus 27:3; Exodus 38:3), once in Numbers, and twice in Chronicles. Another form of the same root, מַזְלֵג occurs twice in Samuel, in the same sense of "flesh-hook" (1 Samuel 2:13, 14), where also its use is made dramatically plain. Huram his father; i.e. his chief artist.
