Moreover he made an altar of brass,twentycubits the length thereof, and twentycubits the breadth thereof, and tencubits the height thereof.
Also he made a moltensea of tencubits from brim to brim,round in compass, and fivecubits the height thereof; and a line of thirtycubits did compass it round about.3
And under it was the similitude of oxen, which did compass it round about:ten in a cubit,compassing the sea round about.Tworows of oxen were cast , when it was cast.4
It stood upon twelveoxen,threelooking toward the north, and threelooking toward the west, and threelooking toward the south, and threelooking toward the east: and the sea was set above upon them, and all their hinder parts were inward.5
And the thickness of it was an handbreadth, and the brim of it like the work of the brim of a cup, with flowersa of lilies; and it received and heldthreethousandbaths.6
He made also tenlavers, and putfive 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 .
And he madetencandlesticks of gold according to their form, and set them in the temple,five on the right hand, and five on the left.8
He made also tentables, and placed them in the temple,five on the right side, and five on the left. And he made an hundredbasonsb of gold.9
Furthermore he made the court of the priests, and the greatcourt, and doors for the court, and overlaid the doors of them with brass.10

And Hurammade the pots, and the shovels, and the basons.c And Huramfinished the work that he was to make for kingSolomon for the house of God;12
To wit, the twopillars, and the pommels, and the chapiters which were on the top of the two pillars, and the twowreaths to cover the twopommels of the chapiters which were on the top of the pillars;13
And fourhundredpomegranates on the twowreaths;tworows of pomegranates on eachwreath, to cover the twopommels of the chapiters which were upond the pillars.14
