International Standard Bible EncyclopediaFILLET
fil'-et (chuT, chashuq):
(1) Chut, from a root not used, meaning probably "to sew," therefore a string or a measuring rod or cord, and so a line, tape, thread, fillet. Jeremiah 52:21 translated "line" (the King James Version "fillet"), measuring 12 cubits long, encircling brass pillars standing 18 cubits high, part of the temple treasure plundered by the Chaldeans; and many other things "that were in the house of Yahweh, did the Chaldeans break in pieces." Translated "thread," used by Rahab, in Joshua 2:18, and "cord," "three fold. is not quickly broken," in Ecclesiastes 4:12.
(2) Chashuq, from a root meaning "to join" and therefore something joined or attached, and so a rail or rod between pillars, i.e. a fillet. The hangings of the court of the tabernacle were supported by brass pillars set in brass sockets, "The hooks of the pillars and their fillets shall be of silver" (Exodus 27:10, 11). The embroidered screen for the door of the Tent was supported by five pillars socketed in brass: "And he overlaid their capitals and their fillets with gold" (Exodus 36:38). The pillars for the court and the gate of the court had fillets of silver (Exodus 38:10). The verb is used in Exodus 27:17; Exodus 38:17, "All the pillars of the court were filleted with silver."
