The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire Bible1 Kings 7:19
And the chapiters that were upon the top of the pillars were
of lily work in the porch…
Or such as was in the porch of the
temple; the work was like that wrought in the form of the flower of
of the five cubits of which the chapiters consisted, four
of them were of lily work, the two rows of pomegranates taking up the
other; though Dr. Lightfoot F15 thinks, that at the head of the pillar
was a border or circle of lily work, that stood out four cubits under
the chapiter, into and along the porch; a four cubit circle, after the
manner of a spread lily.
F15 Prospect of the Temple, c. 13. sect. 2. p. 1075.
