    Chr. 4:11-12, that says:

    . . . And Huram finished the work that he was to make for King Solomon for the house of God; to wit, the two pillars , and the pommels and the chapiters which were on the top of the pillars, and the two wreaths to cover the two pommels of the chapiters which were on top of the pillars.:

    that took a little looking but thanks for the egg hunt I love learning new stuff!

    Globes? What globes? At the time Solomon's Temple was built no one knew the earth was round. There were no globes.

    You should consult the Bible for the answer to this statement. You can locate the specifics in the following chapter/verse:

    2 Chronicles, Chapter 4, Verses 11-14


    {GLOBE} Origin:
    1400–50; late Middle English < Middle French globe < Latin globus round body, ball, sphere
