1 Kings 7:36

For on the plates of the ledges thereof, and on the borders
thereof
In this, and the preceding verse, a different word is used, translated "ledges", from that in (1 Kings 7:28,29) , the Targum renders it axle trees; as if the axle trees of the wheels, and the borders, circumferences, and rings of them, were meant, in which were the following engravings: it literally signifies hands or handles; and Procopius Gazaeus says, that the bases had, in the upper part of them, forms of hands holding a circle like a crown:

he graved cherubims, lions, and palm trees, according to the proportion
of everyone;
these figures were made as large as the plates of the ledges, and the borders, would allow room for:

and the addition round about;
which were sloping shelves of brass around the base, (1 Kings 7:29) these were ornamented in like manner.
