Jachin - Jehovah doth establish

Is the right-hand pillar facing eastward, that is, on the south, that stood at the porch of King Solomon's Temple. Dividing this name into syllables, we find the first syllable is Jah, the name of Jehovah in poetry; while the word (iachin), means to establish, therefore linking the two together we have, "With God's help to establish." — ( 1 Kings 7:21 - 2 Chronicles 3:17 )
