Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Borders - Rather, "panels" (so 1 Kings 7:32, 1 Kings 7:35), a set of square compartments between the "ledges" or borders, or mouldings. Below the panelling, with its ornamentation of lions, oxen (the two animal forms which occur most frequently in Assyrian decoration), and cherubim, was a space decorated with "additions of thin work" 1 Kings 7:29.

For hence it is
