Setting

SETTING

set'-ing (millu'ah, literally, "a filling"):

The word is used in the description of the manufacture of the breastplate of judgment (Exodus 28:17). The instruction runs: "Thou shalt set in it settings of stones," namely, four rows of precious stones. The same word is rendered "inclosings" in Exodus 28:20, and in 39:13 the King James Version.
