Our "knob" (Exodus 25:31 - 36-37; Exodus 17-22).
(1) Κaphtor , pomegranate-like knops or balls, associated with flowers in architectural ornamentation, also a boss from which, as crowning the stem, branches spring out. In Amos 9:1 instead of "lintel" (kaphtor ), and Zephaniah 2:14 translated "the sphere-like capital of the column." The Hebrew implies something crowning a work and at its top.
(2) Ρeqaiym (1 Kings 6:18; 1 Kings 7:24), gourd-like oval ornaments running in straight rows, carved in the cedar wainscot of the temple interior, and an ornament cast round the great" sea" below the brim; in double row, ten to a cubit, two inches from center to center (1 Kings 6:18; 1 Kings 7:24). Ρaqowt means "wild gourds".
