Carved Work

This was much used in the Temple. "He carved all the walls of the house round about with carved figures of cherubim, and palm-trees, and open flowers." They were then overlaid with gold. 1 Kings 6:18,29-35 . The Psalmist prophetically laments its being broken down by the enemy with axes and hammers. Psalm 74:6 . For the 'carved images' of idolatry, Judges 18:18; 2 Chronicles 33:7,22; 2 Chronicles 34:3,4 , another word is used, which is elsewhere translated 'graven image.'
