Bench
BENCH — the rowing bench of a ship (Ezek. 27:6, KJV). The same word is used for the “boards” of acacia wood in the tabernacle (Ex. 26:15).

Benches
BENCHES KJV translation for the planks of a ship’s deck (Ezek. 27:6). Modern translations give the wood of the deck variously: boxwood (NASB), pine (NRSV, TEV), or cypress (NIV, REB). These translations understand the deck to be inlaid with ivory rather than made of ivory as the KJV suggests.
