Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
KNOP . Another form of ‘knob,’ is used to render two different words in EV [Note: English Version.] . 1 . The knops of the stem and arms of the golden candlestick, or rather lampstand, of the Tabernacle ( Exodus 25:31 etc.) were the spheroidal ornaments still recognizable in the representation on the Arch of Titus 2:1-15 . Knops also denote certain ornaments, probably egg- or gourd-shaped, carved on the cedar lining of the walls of Solomon’s Temple ( 1 Kings 6:18 note RVm [Note: Revised Version margin.] ), and similar ornaments on the ‘brazen sea’ ( 1 Kings 7:24 ).
