Knop. A word employed, in the Authorized Version, to translate two terms which refer to some architectural or ornamental object, but which have nothing in common.

1. Caphtor. - This occurs in the description of the candlestick of the sacred tent in Exodus 25:31-36 and Exodus 37:17-22.

2. The second term, Peka'im, is found only in 1 Kings 6:18 and 1 Kings 7:24. The word no doubt signifies some globular thing resembling a small gourd or an egg, though as to the character of the ornament, we are quite in the dark.
