The Bronze Altar and Molten Sea
(1 Kings 7:13-22)
1And he made a brazen altar: its length was twenty cubits, and its breadth twenty cubits, and its height ten cubits.
2And he made the sea, molten, ten cubits from brim to brim, round all about; and its height was five cubits; and a line of thirty cubits encompassed it round about.
3And under it was the similitude of oxen, encompassing it round about, ten in a cubit enclosing the sea round about, two rows of oxen, cast when it was cast.
4It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking toward the north, and three looking toward the west, and three looking toward the south, and three looking toward the east; and the sea was above upon them, and all their hinder parts were inward.
5And its thickness was a hand-breadth, and its brim like the work of the brim of a cup, with lily-blossoms; in capacity it held three thousand baths.
The Ten Lavers, Candlesticks, and Tables
(1 Kings 7:38-39)
6And he made ten lavers, and put five on the right and five on the left, to wash in them: they rinsed in them what they prepared for the burnt-offering; and the sea was for the priests to wash in.
7And he made ten candlesticks of gold according to the ordinance respecting them, and set them in the temple, five on the right hand and five on the left.
8And he made ten tables, and placed them in the temple, five on the right hand and five on the left. And he made a hundred golden bowls.
9And he made the court of the priests, and the great court, and doors for the court, and overlaid the doors thereof with bronze.
10And he set the sea on the right side eastward, over against the south.
The Instruments of Brass
(1 Kings 7:40-51)
11And Huram made the pots and the shovels and the bowls. So Huram ended doing the work that he made for king Solomon in the house of God:
12two pillars, and the globes and the capitals on the top of the pillars, two; and the two networks, to cover the two globes of the capitals which were on the top of the pillars;
13and the four hundred pomegranates for the two networks, two rows of pomegranates for one network, to cover the two globes of the capitals which were upon the pillars.
14And he made the bases, and he made the lavers on the bases;
15one sea, and the twelve oxen under it.
16And the pots, and the shovels, and the forks, and all their instruments did Huram Abiv make king Solomon for the house of Jehovah, of bright brass.
17In the plain of the Jordan did the king cast them, in the clay-ground between Succoth and Zeredathah.
18And Solomon made all these vessels in great number; for the weight of the brass was not ascertained.
The Instruments of Gold
19And Solomon made all the vessels that were in the house of God: the golden altar; and the tables whereon was the shewbread;
20and the candlesticks with their lamps to burn according to the ordinance before the oracle, of pure gold;
21and the flowers, and the lamps, and the tongs, of gold (it was perfect gold);
22and the knives, and the bowls, and the cups, and the censers, of pure gold; and the entrance of the house, the inner folding-doors thereof for the most holy place, and the doors of the house, of the temple, of gold.
