2 Kings 18:16  --  Pillars, doorpost (in Niv)

Since this word carries with it the concept of support (as well as being the
root behind trust and faithfulness) I was wondering if there might be an
explanation as to why the writer has employed this word instead of the more
frequent word that is used for pillar.  It is the ONLY occurence in the
scripture.  Any suggestions please?

Chris, Ireland.
