He then made ten basins1 for washing and placed five on the south side and five on the north. In them the things to be used for the burnt offerings2 were rinsed, but the Sea was to be used by the priests for washing.
He made ten gold lampstands3 according to the specifications4 for them and placed them in the temple, five on the south side and five on the north.
He made ten tables5 and placed them in the temple, five on the south side and five on the north. He also made a hundred gold sprinkling bowls.69
He made the courtyard7 of the priests, and the large court and the doors for the court, and overlaid the doors with bronze.
He placed the Sea on the south side, at the southeast corner.
He also made the pots and shovels and sprinkling bowls. So Huram finished8 the work he had undertaken for King Solomon in the temple of God:
the two pillars; the two bowl-shaped capitals on top of the pillars; the two sets of network decorating the two bowl-shaped capitals on top of the pillars;
the four hundred pomegranates for the two sets of network (two rows of pomegranates for each network, decorating the bowl-shaped capitals on top of the pillars);
the stands9 with their basins;
the Sea and the twelve bulls under it;
the pots, shovels, meat forks and all related articles. All the objects that Huram-Abi10 made for King Solomon for the temple of the LORD were of polished bronze.
The king had them cast in clay molds in the plain of the Jordan between Succoth11 and Zarethan.a18
All these things that Solomon made amounted to so much that the weight of the bronze12 was not determined.
