full from one end to another.

Now the house was full of men and women; and all the lords of the Philistines were there; and there were upon the roof about three thousand men and women, that beheld while Samson made sport.









(21) Sent through all Israel.--The Vatican LXX. adds, "saying: And now all his servants, and all his priests, and all his prophets, let none be wanting; because I make a great sacrifice. Whoever shall be wanting he shall not live." This is another instance (comp. 2Kings 9:16) of the insertion in the text of a marginal note belonging to another place. The note preserves the reading of the first half of 2Kings 10:19 according to another MS. (See Thenius ad loc.)

Was full from one end to another.--Right as to the sense. The figure is taken from a full vessel; as if we were to say, "The house was brimful." The rim of a vessel was its mouth. The rim of the contents reached the rim of the vessel. Schulz explains "head to head" (comp. the margin); Gesenius, "from corner to corner" (comp. 2Kings 21:16); LXX. literally, ????? ??? ????? "mouth to mouth."

Verse 21. - And Jehu sent through all Israel; i.e. through the whole of his own kingdom, from Dan on the north to Bethel on the south. And all the worshippers of Baal came, so that there was not a man left that came not. Duty and inclination for once coincided. The king's command made it incumbent on them, they would argue, to attend; and attendance would, they supposed, result in a time of excitement and enjoyment, which they were not disposed to miss. The death-penalty threatened for non-attendance (ver. 19) was scarcely needed to induce them all to come. And they came into the house of Baal. Ahab had erected a temple to Baal in Samaria shortly after his marriage with Jezebel (1 Kings 16:22). Like the other temples of the time, in Judaea, in Egypt, and in Phoenicia, it was not a mere "house," but contained vast courts and corridors fitted for the reception of immense numbers. And the house of Baal was full from one end to another; literally, from brim to brim; i.e. brimful - "metaphora sumpta a vasibus humore aliquo plenis."
