(only in the plural שְׁלִבַּים, shelobbim', from שָׁלִב, to mortice together; Sent. ἐξεχόμενα, Vulg.juncturie), prop.joints, e. . at the corners of a base or pedestal; hence perhaps an ornament overlaying these angles to hide the juncture (1 Kings 7:28-29). In 1 Kings 7:35-36, the term thus rendered is different, namely יָד , yacd, lit. a hand, i.e. a lateral projection, probably referring to side-borders to the same pedestals. The description is too brief and the terms too vague to allow a more definite idea of these appendages to the bases in question. (See LAVER).
