    Oracle - A declaration; something uttered.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Chronicles 3:16

    As in the oracle - This passage is probably corrupt. Our translators supposing that a single letter had fallen out at the beginning of the word translated "in the oracle," supplied "as." But we have no reason to suppose there were any "chains" or "festoons" in the "oracle" or most holy place.
