1 Chronicles 29:2 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Before וגו והמּזלגות we should probably supply from 1 Chronicles 28:11 : "he gave him the pattern of the forks...ולכפורי, and for the golden tankards, according to the weight of each tankard." For מזלנות and מזרקות, see on 2 Chronicles 4:22. קשׂוה, σπονδεῖα, cups for the libations, occur only in Exodus 25:29; Exodus 37:16, and Numbers 4:7. טהור זהב, in free subordination: of pure gold. כּפורים from כּפר, to cover, are vessels provided with covers, tankards; only mentioned here and in Ezra 1:10; Ezra 8:27.
