1 Kings 7:13-51

NRS 13 Now King Solomon invited and received Hiram from Tyre. NIV 13 King Solomon sent to Tyre and brought Huram, NRS 14 He was the son of a widow of the tribe of Naphtali, whose father, a man of Tyre, had been an artisan in bronze; he was full of skill, intelligence, and knowledge in working bronze. He came to King Solomon, and did all his work. NIV 14 whose mother was a widow from the tribe of Naphtali and whose father was a man of Tyre and a craftsman in bronze. Huram was highly skilled and experienced in all kinds of bronze work. He came to King Solomon and did all the work assigned to him. NRS 15 He cast two pillars of bronze. Eighteen cubits was the height of the one, and a cord of twelve cubits would encircle it; the second pillar was the same. NIV 15 He cast two bronze pillars, each eighteen cubits high and twelve cubits around, by line. NRS 16 He also made two capitals of molten bronze, to set on the tops of the pillars; the height of the one capital was five cubits, and the height of the other capital was five cubits. NIV 16 He also made two capitals of cast bronze to set on the tops of the pillars; each capital was five cubits high. NRS 17 There were nets of checker work with wreaths of chain work for the capitals on the tops of the pillars; seven for the one capital, and seven for the other capital. NIV 17 A network of interwoven chains festooned the capitals on top of the pillars, seven for each capital. NRS 18 He made the columns with two rows around each latticework to cover the capitals that were above the pomegranates; he did the same with the other capital. NIV 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. NRS 19 Now the capitals that were on the tops of the pillars in the vestibule were of lily-work, four cubits high. NIV 19 The capitals on top of the pillars in the portico were in the shape of lilies, four cubits high. NRS 20 The capitals were on the two pillars and also above the rounded projection that was beside the latticework; there were two hundred pomegranates in rows all around; and so with the other capital. NIV 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. NRS 21 He set up the pillars at the vestibule of the temple; he set up the pillar on the south and called it Jachin; and he set up the pillar on the north and called it Boaz. NIV 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. NRS 22 On the tops of the pillars was lily-work. Thus the work of the pillars was finished. NIV 22 The capitals on top were in the shape of lilies. And so the work on the pillars was completed. NRS 23 Then he made the molten sea; it was round, ten cubits from brim to brim, and five cubits high. A line of thirty cubits would encircle it completely. NIV 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. NRS 24 Under its brim were panels all around it, each of ten cubits, surrounding the sea; there were two rows of panels, cast when it was cast. NIV 24 Below the rim, gourds encircled it--ten to a cubit. The gourds were cast in two rows in one piece with the Sea. NRS 25 It stood on twelve oxen, three facing north, three facing west, three facing south, and three facing east; the sea was set on them. The hindquarters of each were toward the inside. NIV 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. NRS 26 Its thickness was a handbreadth; its brim was made like the brim of a cup, like the flower of a lily; it held two thousand baths. NIV 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. NRS 27 He also made the ten stands of bronze; each stand was four cubits long, four cubits wide, and three cubits high. NIV 27 He also made ten movable stands of bronze; each was four cubits long, four wide and three high. NRS 28 This was the construction of the stands: they had borders; the borders were within the frames; NIV 28 This is how the stands were made: They had side panels attached to uprights. NRS 29 on the borders that were set in the frames were lions, oxen, and cherubim. On the frames, both above and below the lions and oxen, there were wreaths of beveled work. NIV 29 On the panels between the uprights were lions, bulls and cherubim--and on the uprights as well. Above and below the lions and bulls were wreaths of hammered work. NRS 30 Each stand had four bronze wheels and axles of bronze; at the four corners were supports for a basin. The supports were cast with wreaths at the side of each. NIV 30 Each stand had four bronze wheels with bronze axles, and each had a basin resting on four supports, cast with wreaths on each side. NRS 31 Its opening was within the crown whose height was one cubit; its opening was round, as a pedestal is made; it was a cubit and a half wide. At its opening there were carvings; its borders were four-sided, not round. NIV 31 On the inside of the stand there was an opening that had a circular frame one cubit deep. This opening was round, and with its basework it measured a cubit and a half. Around its opening there was engraving. The panels of the stands were square, not round. NRS 32 The four wheels were underneath the borders; the axles of the wheels were in the stands; and the height of a wheel was a cubit and a half. NIV 32 The four wheels were under the panels, and the axles of the wheels were attached to the stand. The diameter of each wheel was a cubit and a half. NRS 33 The wheels were made like a chariot wheel; their axles, their rims, their spokes, and their hubs were all cast. NIV 33 The wheels were made like chariot wheels; the axles, rims, spokes and hubs were all of cast metal. NRS 34 There were four supports at the four corners of each stand; the supports were of one piece with the stands. NIV 34 Each stand had four handles, one on each corner, projecting from the stand. NRS 35 On the top of the stand there was a round band half a cubit high; on the top of the stand, its stays and its borders were of one piece with it. NIV 35 At the top of the stand there was a circular band half a cubit deep. The supports and panels were attached to the top of the stand. NRS 36 On the surfaces of its stays and on its borders he carved cherubim, lions, and palm trees, where each had space, with wreaths all around. NIV 36 He engraved cherubim, lions and palm trees on the surfaces of the supports and on the panels, in every available space, with wreaths all around. NRS 37 In this way he made the ten stands; all of them were cast alike, with the same size and the same form. NIV 37 This is the way he made the ten stands. They were all cast in the same molds and were identical in size and shape. NRS 38 He made ten basins of bronze; each basin held forty baths, each basin measured four cubits; there was a basin for each of the ten stands. NIV 38 He then made ten bronze basins, each holding forty baths and measuring four cubits across, one basin to go on each of the ten stands. NRS 39 He set five of the stands on the south side of the house, and five on the north side of the house; he set the sea on the southeast corner of the house. NIV 39 He placed five of the stands on the south side of the temple and five on the north. He placed the Sea on the south side, at the southeast corner of the temple. NRS 40 Hiram also made the pots, the shovels, and the basins. So Hiram finished all the work that he did for King Solomon on the house of the Lord: NIV 40 He also made the basins and shovels and sprinkling bowls. So Huram finished all the work he had undertaken for King Solomon in the temple of the LORD: NRS 41 the two pillars, the two bowls of the capitals that were on the tops of the pillars, the two latticeworks to cover the two bowls of the capitals that were on the tops of the pillars; NIV 41 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; NRS 42 the four hundred pomegranates for the two latticeworks, two rows of pomegranates for each latticework, to cover the two bowls of the capitals that were on the pillars; NIV 42 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); NRS 43 the ten stands, the ten basins on the stands; NIV 43 the ten stands with their ten basins; NRS 44 the one sea, and the twelve oxen underneath the sea. NIV 44 the Sea and the twelve bulls under it; NRS 45 The pots, the shovels, and the basins, all these vessels that Hiram made for King Solomon for the house of the Lord were of burnished bronze. NIV 45 the pots, shovels and sprinkling bowls. All these objects that Huram made for King Solomon for the temple of the LORD were of burnished bronze. NRS 46 In the plain of the Jordan the king cast them, in the clay ground between Succoth and Zarethan. NIV 46 The king had them cast in clay molds in the plain of the Jordan between Succoth and Zarethan. NRS 47 Solomon left all the vessels unweighed, because there were so many of them; the weight of the bronze was not determined. NIV 47 Solomon left all these things unweighed, because there were so many; the weight of the bronze was not determined. NRS 48 So Solomon made all the vessels that were in the house of the Lord: the golden altar, the golden table for the bread of the Presence, NIV 48 Solomon also made all the furnishings that were in the LORD's temple: the golden altar; the golden table on which was the bread of the Presence; NRS 49 the lampstands of pure gold, five on the south side and five on the north, in front of the inner sanctuary; the flowers, the lamps, and the tongs, of gold; NIV 49 the lampstands of pure gold (five on the right and five on the left, in front of the inner sanctuary); the gold floral work and lamps and tongs; NRS 50 the cups, snuffers, basins, dishes for incense, and firepans, of pure gold; the sockets for the doors of the innermost part of the house, the most holy place, and for the doors of the nave of the temple, of gold. NIV 50 the pure gold basins, wick trimmers, sprinkling bowls, dishes and censers; and the gold sockets for the doors of the innermost room, the Most Holy Place, and also for the doors of the main hall of the temple. NRS 51 Thus all the work that King Solomon did on the house of the Lord was finished. Solomon brought in the things that his father David had dedicated, the silver, the gold, and the vessels, and stored them in the treasuries of the house of the Lord. NIV 51 When all the work King Solomon had done for the temple of the LORD was finished, he brought in the things his father David had dedicated--the silver and gold and the furnishings--and he placed them in the treasuries of the LORD's temple.
