settings (Rashi; Yad, Kley HaMikdash 9:9). Mishbetzoth in Hebrew. Others translate the word as 'rosettes' or 'gold mesh settings,' because they were made of knitted or braided gold (Saadia; Ibn Janach; Radak, Sherashim; Ralbag). Josephus describes these settings as buttons resembling small shields (Wars 5:5:7), and the Septuagint likewise translates mishbetzoth as aspidiskos, 'small shieldlike discs.' Other ancient Greek sources translate it as sphigkteras, 'bands' or 'straps' (Aquilla).
