2 Chronicles 4
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And he makes an altar of bronze: twenty cubits its length, and twenty cubits its breadth, and ten cubits its height. 2And he makes the molten sea; ten by the cubit, from its edge to its edge, round in encompassment, and its height [is] five by the cubit, and a line of thirty by the cubit surrounds it around. And the likeness of oxen [is] under it, encompassing it all around, ten to the cubit, surrounding the sea around; two rows of oxen are cast in its being cast. 4It is standing on twelve oxen, three facing the north, and three facing the west, and three facing the south, and three facing the east, and the sea [is] on them above, and all their back parts [are] within. 5And its thickness [is] a handbreadth, and its lip as the work of the lip of a cup flowered with lilies; holding [within]—it contains three thousand baths.

6And he makes ten lavers, and puts five on the right, and five on the left, to wash with them; they purge the work of the burnt-offering with them; and the sea [is] for priests to wash with.

7And he makes the ten lampstands of gold, according to their ordinance, and places [them] in the temple, five on the right, and five on the left. 8And he makes ten tables, and places [them] in the temple, five on the right, and five on the left; and he makes one hundred bowls of gold.

9And he makes the court of the priests, and the great court, and doors for the court, and he has overlaid their doors with bronze. 10And he has placed the sea on the right shoulder eastward, from toward the south.

And Huram makes the pots, and the shovels, and the bowls, and Huram finishes to make the work that he made for King Solomon in the house of God; two pillars, and the bowls, and the crowns on the heads of the two pillars, and the two networks to cover the two bowls of the crowns that [are] on the heads of the pillars; and the four hundred pomegranates for the two networks, two rows of pomegranates for the one network, to cover the two bowls of the crowns that [are] on the front of the pillars. And he has made the bases; and he has made the lavers on the bases; the one sea, and the twelve oxen under it, and the pots, and the shovels, and the forks, and all their vessels, his father Huram has made for King Solomon, for the house of YHWH, of bronze purified. The king has cast them in the circuit of the Jordan, in the thick soil of the ground, between Succoth and Zeredathah. 18And Solomon makes all these vessels in great abundance, that the weight of the bronze has not been searched out.

And Solomon makes all the vessels that [are for] the house of God, and the altar of gold, and the tables, and on them [is] Bread of the Presentation; and the lampstands, and their lamps, for their burning according to the ordinance, before the oracle, of gold refined; and the flowers, and the lamps, and the tongs of gold—it [is] the perfection of gold; and the snuffers, and the bowls, and the spoons, and the censers, of gold refined, and the opening of the house, its innermost doors to the Holy of Holies, and the doors of the house to the temple, of gold.
