    Barnes' Notes on 2 Chronicles 3:13

    Their faces were inward - literally, as in the margin. Instead of looking toward one another, with heads bent downward over the mercy Seat, like the cherubim of Moses Exodus 37:9, these of Solomon looked out from the sanctuary into the great chamber ("the house"). The cherubim thus stood upright on either side of the ark, like two sentinels guarding it.

    Wesley's Notes on 2 Chronicles 3:13

    3:13 Inward - Heb. towards the house, that is, the most holy house.
