    Barnes' Notes on 1 Kings 7:4

    Either three ranges of windows, one above the other, on either side of the house; or perhaps the three ranges were one in either side wall, and the third in a wall down the middle of the hall, along the course of the midmost row of pillars. The windows were directly opposite one another, giving what we call a through light.

    Wesley's Notes on 1 Kings 7:4

    7:4 Against light - One directly opposite to the other, as is usual in well - contrived buildings. In ranks - One exactly under another.
