Easton's Bible Dictionary
The arts of engraving and carving were much practised among the Jews. They were practised in connection with the construction of the tabernacle and the temple (Exodus 31:2,5
; 1 Kings 6:18,35
; Psalm 74:6
), as well as in the ornamentation of the priestly dresses (Exodus 28:9-36
; Zechariah 3:9
; 2 Chronicles 2:7,14
). (Isaiah 44:13-17
) gives a minute description of the process of carving idols of wood.
