John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And the oracle he prepared in the house within,.... In the innermost part of the house he fitted up the oracle, or speaking place, from whence the Lord spake and gave answer, to receive what was to be put into it: particularly

to set there the ark of the covenant of the Lord; even the very same that Moses made, Exodus 37:1, for which David had pitched a tent in Zion, 1 Chronicles 15:1, and where it now was; for Solomon made no new ark.

Wesley's Explanatory Notes

And the oracle he prepared in the house within, to set there the ark of the covenant of the LORD.

Prepared — That is, adorned and fitted it for the receipt of the ark. Solomon made every thing new, but the ark. That with its mercy seat was still the same that Moses made. This was the token of God's presence, which is with his people, whether they meet in tent or temple, and changes not with their condition.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

1 Kings 6:19 And the oracle he prepared in the house within, to set there the ark of the covenant of the LORD.

Ver. 19. To set there the ark of the covenant of the Lord.] This was a most precious piece. The Palladium at Troy, the Pessinuntium at Rome, the Image at Ephesus, made by Canetias, an ancient craftsman, and said by the covetous priests to have fallen down from Jupiter, [Acts 19:35] are not worthy to be named in the same day with this ark of the covenant; the principle evidence of God’s gracious presence, and, besides, a very lively type of Christ, and therefore kept in the innermost part of God’s house.

Matthew Poole's English Annotations on the Holy Bible

He prepared, i.e. adorned and fitted it for the receipt of the ark.

In the house, Heb. in the middle of the house, or building; not the middle mathematically or exactly, but in general within the house, as that phrase, in the middle, oft signifies; as Deuteronomy 4:11 Joshua 7:21 Daniel 3:26.

Within, or, in the uttermost part of the house; for so this was, the entrance into the house being at the other end.
