2 Chronicles 41And he made a bronze altar, the length of it twenty cubits, and the breadth twenty cubits, and the height ten cubits. 2And he made the molten sea, in diameter ten cubits, entirely round, and the height of it five cubits, and the circumference thirty cubits. 3And beneath it the likeness of calves, they compassed it round about: ten cubits compass the laver round about, they cast the calves two rows in their casting, 4wherein they made them twelve calves-three looking northwards, three westwards, three southwards, and three eastwards; and the sea was upon them above, and their hind parts were inward. 5And its thickness was a handbreadth, and its brim as the brim of a cup, graven with flowers of lilies, holding three thousand measures; and he finished it. 6And he made ten lavers, and set five on the right hand, and five on the left, to wash in them the instruments of the whole burnt offerings, and to rinse the vessels in them; and the sea was for the priests to wash in. 7And he made the ten golden lampstands according to their pattern, and he put them in the temple, five on the right hand, and five on the left. 8And he made ten tables, and put them in the temple, five on the right hand, and five on the left. And he made a hundred golden bowls. 9Also he made the priests' court, and the great court, and doors to the court, and their panels were overlaid with bronze. 10And he set the sea at the corner of the house on the right, as it were, facing the east. 11And Huram made the fleshhooks and the firepans, and the grate of the altar, and all its instruments. And Hiram finished doing all the work which he wrought for King Solomon in the house of God: 12two pillars, and upon them an embossed work for the chapiters on the heads of the two pillars, and two nets to cover the heads of the chapiters which are on the heads of the pillars; 13and four hundred golden bells for the two nets, and two rows of pomegranates in each net, to cover the two embossed rims of the chapiters which are upon the pillars. 14And he made the ten bases, and he made the lavers upon the bases; 15and the one sea, and the twelve calves under it; 16and the foot-baths, and the buckets, and the caldrons, and the fleshhooks, and all their furniture (which Hiram made, and brought to King Solomon in the house of the Lord) of pure bronze. 17In the country round about the Jordan the king cast them, in the clay ground in the house of Succoth, and between that and Zeredah. 18So Solomon made all these vessels in great abundance, for the quantity of bronze failed not. 19And Solomon made all the vessels of the house of the Lord, and the golden altar, and the tables, and upon them were to be the loaves of showbread; 20also the lampstands, and the lamps to give light according to the pattern, and in front of the oracle, of pure gold. 21And their snuffers, and their lamps were made, and he made the bowls, and the censers, and the fire-pans, of pure gold. 22And there was the inner door of the house opening into the Holy of Holies, and he made the inner doors of the temple of gold. So all the work which Solomon wrought for the house of the Lord was finished.
