2 Chronicles 4
The Temple`s Furnishings...
And he made an altar of bronze, twenty cubits long, and twenty cubits wide, and ten cubits high.
And he made the Sea of cast metal, ten cubits from one rim to the other, round all about. And its height was five cubits, and a line of thirty cubits measured around it.
And figures like oxen were under it, all around it, ten to a cubit, all the way around the Sea. Two rows of oxen were cast when it was cast.
It stood on twelve oxen, three facing north, and three facing west, and three facing south, and three facing east. And the Sea was set upon them, and all their back parts were inward.
And it was a handbreadth thick, and its rim was shaped like the rim of a cup, like a lily blossom. It held three thousand baths.
And he made ten basins, and put five on the right side and five on the left, to wash in them. In them they rinsed off what pertains to the burnt offering, but the Sea was for the priests to wash in.
And he made ten lampstands of gold according to their ruling, and set them in the Hekal, five on the right side and five on the left.
And he made ten tables, and placed them in the Hekal, five on the right side and five on the left. And he made one hundred bowls of gold.
And he made the courtyard of the priests, and the great court and doors for the court. And he overlaid these doors with bronze.
And he placed the Sea on the right side, eastward over against the south.
And Huram made the pots and the shovels and the bowls. So Huram completed doing the work that he was to do for Sovereign Shelomoh for the House of Elohim:
the two columns and the bowl-shaped capitals that were on top of the two columns, and the two networks to cover the two bowl-shaped capitals which were on top of the columns;
and four hundred pomegranates for the two networks, two rows of pomegranates for each network, to cover the two bowl-shaped capitals that were on the columns.
And he made stands and the basins on the stands,
one Sea and twelve oxen under it;
and the pots, and the shovels, and the forks. And all their vessels Huram his master craftsman made of polished bronze for Sovereign Shelomoh for the House of YHWH.
On the plain of Yarden the sovereign had them cast in clay moulds, between Sukkoth and Tseredathah.
And Shelomoh made so large a number of all these vessels that the weight of the bronze was not searched out.
And Shelomoh had all the furnishings made for the House of Elohim, and the altar of gold and the tables on which was the showbread,
and the lampstands with their lamps of refined gold, to burn according to right-ruling in front of the Speaking Place,
and the blossoms and the lamps and the snuffers of gold, of perfect gold,
and the snuffers, and the bowls, and the ladles, and the fire holders of refined gold. And the entrance to the House, its inner doors to the Most Set-apart Place, and the doors of the hekal of the House, were of gold.
