Obelisk

OBELISK

ob'-e-lisk, ob'-el-isk:

A sacred stone or matstsebhah. For matstsebhah the Revised Version (British and American) has used "pillar" in the text, with "obelisk" in the margin in many instances (Exodus 23:24; Leviticus 26:1; Deuteronomy 12:3; 1 Kings 14:23; Hosea 3:4; 10:1,2, etc.), but not consistently (e.g. Genesis 28:18).

See PILLAR.
