lintels in the Bible

  1. Hebrew: mashkoph, a projecting cover (Exodus 12:22-23; ver. 7, “upper door post,” but Revised King James Version “lintel”); the head-piece of a door, which the Israelites were commanded to mark with the blood of the paschal lamb.

  2. Hebrew: kaphtar

    Amos 9:1; Zeph. 2:14 (Revised King James Version correctly “chapiters,” as in King James Version marginal note).
