And a chapiter of brass [was] upon it
Or a coronet of brass, of molten brass, was set upon the top of the pillar: and the height of one chapiter [was] five cubits;
as in ( 1 Kings 7:16 ) ; but in ( 2 Kings 25:17 ) ; the height is said to be but three cubits; which is reconciled by the Jewish Rabbins thus, the three superior cubits of it were with ornaments, the two inferior without any; the whole together was five cubits; but, as ornamented, only three: with network and pomegranates upon the chapiters round about, all [of]
the nets were of chequer work, and wreaths of chain work, and there were seven of them to each chapiter, ( 1 Kings 7:17 ) ; the second pillar also, and the pomegranates, [were] like unto these;
one pillar was exactly like the other, and the ornaments of it the same.
