By the help of God and the assistance of the square, the entered apprentice hopes to become a fellowcraft.

The name Jachin probably means he establishes and was given to the pillar at the right (or south) of the entrance to the Temple built by Solomon. 1 Kings 7:21 , 2 Chronicles 3:17

The square teaches morality, the level equality and the plumb rule uprightness of life and action. By square conduct, level steps and upright intentions the fellowcraft will merit being raised to the third degree.
