    Barnes' Notes on 1 Kings 7:28

    Borders - Rather, "panels" (so 1 Kings 7:32, 1 Kings 7:35), a set of square compartments between the "ledges" or borders, or mouldings. Below the panelling, with its ornamentation of lions, oxen (the two animal forms which occur most frequently in Assyrian decoration), and cherubim, was a space decorated with "additions of thin work" 1 Kings 7:29.

    Upon the "ledges" 1 Kings 7:29 which surrounded the top of the base there was a stand for the laver, distinct from the upper surface of the base.

    Wesley's Notes on 1 Kings 7:28

    7:28 Borders - Broad brims, possibly for the more secure holding of the lavers.
