Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:1 - Solomon[fn] also made a bronze altar 30 feet long, 30 feet wide, and 15 feet high.[fn]

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:2 - Then he cast a great round basin, 15 feet across from rim to rim, called the Sea. It was 7½ feet deep and about 45 feet in circumference.[fn]

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:3 - It was encircled just below its rim by two rows of figures that resembled oxen. There were about six oxen per foot[fn] all the way around, and they were cast as part of the basin.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:4 - The Sea was placed on a base of twelve bronze oxen, all facing outward. Three faced north, three faced west, three faced south, and three faced east, and the Sea rested on them.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:5 - The walls of the Sea were about three inches[fn] thick, and its rim flared out like a cup and resembled a water lily blossom. It could hold about 16,500 gallons[fn] of water.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:6 - He also made ten smaller basins for washing the utensils for the burnt offerings. He set five on the south side and five on the north. But the priests washed themselves in the Sea.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:7 - He then cast ten gold lampstands according to the specifications that had been given, and he put them in the Temple. Five were placed against the south wall, and five were placed against the north wall.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:8 - He also built ten tables and placed them in the Temple, five along the south wall and five along the north wall. Then he molded 100 gold basins.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:9 - He then built a courtyard for the priests, and also the large outer courtyard. He made doors for the courtyard entrances and overlaid them with bronze.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:10 - The great bronze basin called the Sea was placed near the southeast corner of the Temple.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:11 - Huram-abi also made the necessary washbasins, shovels, and bowls. So at last Huram-abi completed everything King Solomon had assigned him to make for the Temple of God:

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:12 - the two pillars; the two bowl-shaped capitals on top of the pillars; the two networks of interwoven chains that decorated the capitals;

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:13 - the 400 pomegranates that hung from the chains on the capitals (two rows of pomegranates for each of the chain networks that decorated the capitals on top of the pillars);

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:14 - the water carts holding the basins;

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:15 - the Sea and the twelve oxen under it;

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:16 - the ash buckets, the shovels, the meat hooks, and all the related articles. Huram-abi made all these things of burnished bronze for the Temple of the LORD, just as King Solomon had directed.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:17 - The king had them cast in clay molds in the Jordan Valley between Succoth and Zarethan.[fn]

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:18 - Solomon used such great quantities of bronze that its weight could not be determined.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:19 - Solomon also made all the furnishings for the Temple of God: the gold altar; the tables for the Bread of the Presence;

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:20 - the lampstands and their lamps of solid gold, to burn in front of the Most Holy Place as prescribed;

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:21 - the flower decorations, lamps, and tongs—all of the purest gold;

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 4:22 - the lamp snuffers, bowls, dishes, and incense burners—all of solid gold; the doors for the entrances to the Most Holy Place and the main room of the Temple, overlaid with gold.
