Porch of pillars or throne room? New Reading of 1Kings 7: 6-7: Summary

David Shapira, Porch of pillars or throne room? New Reading of 1Kings 7: 6-7, Beit Mikra vol. 61 (2016), No. 2, The Bialik Institute 

 The Bialik Institute 
Verses 6 and 7 of  1 Kings 7 describe two halls in Solomon's  palace: the porch of pillars and the throne roomThe conventional interpretation of verse 6 is a source of disagreements between commentators and leaves many questions unanswered. Does this verse describe one or two halls?  Was there a second floor? What is the meaning of the word ?"עב" New reading of these two verses solves all questions, particularly when archaeological finds support this new reading.
