The golden ivory throne of King Solomon (2 Chr 9:17-9:19)

“The king also made a great ivory throne. He overlaid it with the finest gold. The throne had six steps and a footstool of gold which were attached to the throne. The top of the throne was rounded in the back. Each side of the seat had arm rests with two lions standing beside the arm rests. Twelve lions were standing, one on each end of a step on the six steps. The like of it was never made in any kingdom.”

Once again, this is almost word for word from 1 Kings, chapter 10. King Solomon’s throne was made of ivory covered with gold. He had 6 steps to the throne. There is an additional comment here about a gold footstool attached to the throne that was not in 1 Kings. Each step had 2 standing lions on each side. His arm rests had a lion on each side. There is no indication that these were live lions, or else they would be moving around. The assumption is that that these were statues of lions like the one you see outside many museums. Of course, nothing like this was seen in any kingdom in the world.
