Chapiter. There are three Hebrew words translated "chapiter," the first signifying something which surrounds; the second an ornament; the third is the ordinary word for head or top. It is the upper part of a pillar, answering to what is now called the capital, or a kind of moulding round the top of a column or utensil, probably carved into the representation of flowers or fruits. Exodus 36:38; Exodus 38:17; Exodus 38:19; Exodus 38:28; 1 Kings 7:16-20; 2 Kings 25:17; 2 Chronicles 3:15; 2 Chronicles 4:12-13. The "pommels" of the chapiters were convex projections or mouldings.
