3:15 thirty-five cubits high. 1 Kin. 7:15 reads “eighteen cubits” (cf. 2 Kin. 25:17; Jer. 52:21). It has been suggested that “thirty-five” represents the sum of the lengths of the two pillars (eighteen plus eighteen) or the sum of the dimensions given (eighteen in height, twelve around, and five for the capital). It is also possible that a later copyist has introduced an error.
