    Barnes' Notes on 1 Kings 7:30

    Plates of brass - Rather, "brazen axletrees."

    The "undersetters" (literally, "shoulders") are conjectured to have been four brackets, or bars, proceeding from the four upper corners of the bases, and stretching upward to the outer rim of the laver, which thus rested partly upon them.

    At the side of every addition - Rather, "each opposite garlands." The laver was ornamented with a garland at the place where the support reached it.

    Wesley's Notes on 1 Kings 7:30

    7:30 Wheels - Whereby the bases and lavers might be removed from place to place as need required. Under - setters - Heb. shoulders; fitly so called, because they supported the lavers, that they should not fall from their bases, when the bases were removed together with the lavers.
