I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT THE TWO PILLARS THAT SOLOMON BUILT: (JACHIN AND BOAZ).

MAINLY, WHY WAS THE PILLARS GIVEN DIFFERENCE MESSUREMENTS ACCORDING TO THE BOOK OF KINGS AND THE BOOK OF CHRONICLES?

IF, INDEED THEY ARE THE SAME PILLARS, IS THERE AND ERRA?

1) The use of all caps you are shouting which is rude and not appreciated.

2) It would be very beneficial if you would give scripture Chapter and verse rather than just saying what you think it says. This way one can more easily reference which specific passages you are referencing, especially if the one reading were to be unlearned in the Word such as yourself.

3) There is no contradiction,(error not erra), as the measurements in Kings is the individual length, and the measurement in Chronicles is the measurement together.

quote:

Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible

For he cast two pillars of brass, eighteen cubits high apiece,.... In 2 Chronicles 3:15 they are said to be thirty five cubits high, which must be understood of the length or height of them both; and whereas that would allow but seventeen cubits and a half to a pillar, either the round number of eighteen is used, or half a cubit in each may be allowed, either for the base or pedestal into which they were put; or the chapiter at the top of them, into which they might go such a length, and so only what was seen is described:

and a line of twelve cubits did compass either of them about; that was the circumference of them, and therefore their diameter must be four cubits. Eupolemus, an Heathen writer (n) speaks of these pillars, but he makes the circuit of them to be but ten cubits; and says they were equal in height with the temple, and stood on the right and left, and were made of brass, and covered with gold, the thickness of a finger.

(n) Apud Euseb, Praepar. Evangel. l. 9. c. 34. p. 450.
