Knop

  1. Caphtor . --This occurs in the description of the candlestick of the sacred tent in (Exodus 25:31-36) and Exod 37:17-22
  2. The second term, Pekaim , is found only in (1 Kings 6:18) and 1Kin 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.
Easton's Bible Dictionary
