The square bronze altar (2 Chr 4:1-4:1)

“King Solomon made an altar of bronze that was twenty cubits long, twenty cubits wide, and ten cubits high.”

Although the bronze altar was not mentioned in 1 Kings, chapter 7, there was as allusion to it in chapter 8 of that same book. This square bronze altar is quite long and wide, 20 x 20 cubits or 30 feet x 30 feet, which would make it difficult to get to the center of it. It was also 10 cubits high or 15 feet high. The only way to reach it would be with a ladder. This is quite an odd large square bronze altar.
