17 A network of interwoven chains adorned the capitals on top of the pillars, seven for each capital.
18 He made pomegranates in two rowsa encircling each network to decorate the capitals on top of the pillars.b He did the same for each capital.
19 The capitals on top of the pillars in the portico were in the shape of lilies, four cubitsc high.
20 On the capitals of both pillars, above the bowl-shaped part next to the network, were the two hundred pomegranates in rows all around.
21 He erected the pillars at the portico of the temple. The pillar to the south he named Jakind and the one to the north Boaz.e
22 The capitals on top were in the shape of lilies. And so the work on the pillars was completed.
23 He made the Sea of cast metal, circular in shape, measuring ten cubits from rim to rim and five cubits high. It took a line of thirty cubitsf to measure around it.
24 Below the rim, gourds encircled it—ten to a cubit. The gourds were cast in two rows in one piece with the Sea.
25 The Sea stood on twelve bulls, three facing north, three facing west, three facing south and three facing east. The Sea rested on top of them, and their hindquarters were toward the center.
26 It was a handbreadthg in thickness, and its rim was like the rim of a cup, like a lily blossom. It held two thousand baths.h
27 He also made ten movable stands of bronze; each was four cubits long, four wide and three high.i
