2 Chronicles 4
King James Bible: Purple Letter Edition
1Moreover, he made an altar of bronze; twenty cubits its length {thereof}, and twenty cubits its breadth {thereof}, and ten cubits its height {thereof}.

2Also he made a melted and cast {molten} sea of ten cubits from brim to brim, round in compass, and five cubits its height {thereof}; and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about. 3And under it was the similitude of oxen, which did compass it round about; ten in a cubit, compassing the sea round about. Two rows of oxen were 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 set {above} upon them, and all their rear sections {hinder parts} were inward. 5And the thickness of it was an handbreadth, and the brim of it like the work of the brim of a cup, like the flower of a lily {with flowers of lilies}; and it received and held three thousand baths.

6He made also ten lavers, and put five on the right hand, and five on the left, to wash in them. Such things as they offered for the burnt offering they washed in them; but the sea was for the priests to wash in.

7And he made ten lampstands of gold according to their form, and set them in the temple, five on the right hand, and five on the left.

8He made also ten tables, and placed them in the temple, five on the right side, and five on the left. And he made an hundred basins of gold.

9Furthermore, he made the court of the priests, and the great court, and doors for the court, and overlaid the doors of them with bronze. 10And he set the sea on the right side of the east end, toward {over against} the south.

11And Huram made the pots, and the shovels, and the basins. And Huram finished the work that he was to make for King Solomon for the house of God, 12To wit, the two pillars, and the bowls {pommels}, and the capitals which were on the top of the two pillars, and the two networks {wreaths} to cover the two bowls {pommels} of the capitals which were on the top of the pillars; 13And four hundred pomegranates on the two networks {wreaths}; two rows of pomegranates on each network {wreath}, to cover the two bowls {pommels} of the capitals which were upon the pillars. 14He made also bases, and lavers made he upon the bases; 15One sea, and twelve oxen under it. 16The pots also, and the shovels, and the fleshhooks, and all their instruments, did Huram, his father, make for {to} King Solomon for the house of the LORD of polished {bright} bronze. 17In the plain of Jordan did the king cast them, in the clay ground between Succoth and Zeredah. 18Thus Solomon made all these vessels in great abundance; for the weight of the bronze could not be found out.

19And Solomon made all the vessels that were for the house of God, the golden altar also, and the tables on which {whereon} the showbread was set; 20Moreover, the lampstands with their lamps, that they should burn, according to the ordinance, {after the manner} before the inner sanctuary {oracle}, of pure gold; 21And the flowers, and the lamps, and the tongs, made he of gold, and that perfect gold; 22And the snuffers, and the basins, and the spoons, and the censers, of pure gold. And the entrance {entry} of the house, its inner doors {thereof} for the most holy place, and the doors of the house of the temple, were of gold.
