Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
18 and two rows of bronze pomegranates. 18 He made pomegranates in two rows encircling each network to decorate the capitals on top of the pillars. He did the same for each capital.
19 The capitals were shaped like lilies, 6 feet tall, 19 The capitals on top of the pillars in the portico were in the shape of lilies, four cubits high.
20 and were placed on a rounded section which was above the chain design. There were 200 pomegranates in two rows around each capital. 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 Huram placed these two bronze columns in front of the entrance of the Temple: the one on the south side was named Jachin and the one on the north was named Boaz. 21 He erected the pillars at the portico of the temple. The pillar to the south he named Jakin and the one to the north Boaz.
22 The lily-shaped bronze capitals were on top of the columns. And so the work on the columns was completed. 22 The capitals on top were in the shape of lilies. And so the work on the pillars was completed.
23 Huram made a round tank of bronze, 7 1/2 feet deep, 15 feet in diameter, and 45 feet in circumference. 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 cubits to measure around it.
24 All around the outer edge of the rim of the tank were two rows of bronze gourds, which had been cast all in one piece with the rest of the tank. 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 tank rested on the backs of twelve bronze bulls that faced outward, three facing in each direction. 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 The sides of the tank were 3 inches thick. Its rim was like the rim of a cup, curving outward like the petals of a lily. The tank held about 10,000 gallons. 26 It was a handbreadth in thickness, and its rim was like the rim of a cup, like a lily blossom. It held two thousand baths.
27 Huram also made ten bronze carts; each was 6 feet long, 6 feet wide, and 4 1/2 feet high. 27 He also made ten movable stands of bronze; each was four cubits long, four wide and three high.
28 They were made of square panels which were set in frames, 28 This is how the stands were made: They had side panels attached to uprights.
