    Definitions for 1 Kings 7:17

    Chapiter - Capital of a column.

    Barnes' Notes on 1 Kings 7:17

    Nets ... - Rather "Nets chequerwise, and festoons chainwise," - probably a fine network over the whole, and chainwork hanging in festoons outside.

    Seven for the one chapiter - The Septuagint reading is preferable. "A net for the one chapiter and a net for the other chapiter." Compare 1 Kings 7:41.

    Wesley's Notes on 1 Kings 7:17

    7:17 The chapiters - Which those nets and wreathes encompass, either covering, and as it were receiving and holding the pomegranates, or being mixed with them.
