Border is generally the rendering of some form of the Heb. גּבוּלּ, gebul', Gr. ὅρκος, a boundary-line, especially in the plural; also of several other Heb. words in a similar sense; but in Ex 25:25,27; Ex 37:12,14, it represents מַסגֶרֶת, misge'reth, a margin, e.g. ornaments on the brazen stands or pedestals of the lavers, apparently square shields decorated with sculptures on the sides, 1Ki 7:28-36; 2Ki 16:17; and in Nu 15:38, it stands for כָּנָŠ, kanaph', a wing, i.e. hem or fringe of a garment, like κράσπεδον in Mt 23:5; while in Song 1:11, it is תּוֹר, tor, a rowa or string of pearls or golden beads for the headdress.
