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 lilies open:
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.
