Song of Solomon 1:17, "rafters (galleries margin) of fir"; the crossbeams, the carved ceiling, fretted work: rachit . The Qeri, or Hebrew margin, has rahit , an ambulatory; not probable. In Song of Solomon 7:5 translated "the king is held bound with the flowing ringlets"; compare Song of Solomon 6:5. In Ezekiel 41:15; Ezekiel 42:3, "the galleries" are terrace buildings. Smith's Bible Dictionary identifies the" pillars" and "galleries," Ezekiel 42:3; Ezekiel 42:5-6; "the reason of the upper chambers being shorter is ascribed to the absence of supporting pillars which allowed an extra length to the chambers of the lower story; the space included within the pillars would form an open gallery."
