Pillars of the Porch


 Boaz was the name of the left-hand pillar that stood at the porch of King Solomon's Temple.  It is derived from the Hebrew and signifies "in strength."  Jachin was the name of the right-hand pillar.  It is derived from two Hebrew words, jah, "God," and iachin, "will establish."  It signifies "he that strengthens," or "will establish."  The two words used together signify "in strength shall this my house be established."
