(15) And king Solomon made.--Word for word as 1Kings 10:16.

Beaten gold.--Rather, according to Gesenius, mixed or alloyed gold. But the word (shah-t, i.e., shat-ah) seems to mean gold beaten out, gold-leaf. So LXX., ???????.

Went to.--He put on, i.e., he plated the "targets," which were large oblong shields, with gold. (Comp. Amos 8:10, "And I will put upon all loins sackcloth.") So in 2Chronicles 9:16.

Verses 15, 16. - Targets... shields. The Authorized Version "target" is unfortunate, though it may with somewhat grim truth represent fact. It was a very large solid shield, originally made of some common material, as basketwork or wood, and covered with leather; these with a plate of gold. The absence of the word "shekel" in each clause, both here and in Kings, leaves it open to us to suppose that the beka, or half-shekel, may be the right word. Now, the maneh (see 1 Kings 10:17), or pound, meant 100 bekas, i.e. 50 shekels. Thus the targets, or shields, had six manehs of gold to their plating each, and the lesser bucklers (as we may perhaps call them) three manehs each. On the estimate that the shekel weighed 9 dwt. 3 gr., since the maneh weighed fifty shekels (100 bekas, or half-shekels), the gold to a shield (target) may be put at something over 11 lbs. troy. The house of the forest of Lebanon; i.e. an armoury (see 1 Kings 7:2-5; 2 Samuel 8:7; Song of Solomon 4:4; Isaiah 22:8). Shishak took these when he conquered Jerusalem (1 Kings 14:26).
