1 Kings 7:18-28

NLT 18 He also encircled the latticework with two rows of pomegranates to decorate the capitals over the pillars. 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. NLT 19 The capitals on the columns inside the entry room were shaped like water lilies, and they were six feet tall. NIV 19 The capitals on top of the pillars in the portico were in the shape of lilies, four cubits high. NLT 20 The capitals on the two pillars had 200 pomegranates in two rows around them, beside the rounded surface next to the latticework. 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. NLT 21 Huram set the pillars at the entrance of the Temple, one toward the south and one toward the north. He named the one on the south Jakin, and the one on the north 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. NLT 22 The capitals on the pillars were shaped like water lilies. And so the work on 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. NLT 23 Then Huram cast a great round basin, 15 feet across from rim to rim, called the Sea. It was 7 feet deep and about 45 feet in circumference. 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. NLT 24 It was encircled just below its rim by two rows of decorative gourds. There were about six gourds per foot all the way around, and they were cast as part of the basin. 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. NLT 25 The Sea was placed on a base of twelve bronze oxen, all facing outward. Three faced north, three faced west, three faced south, and three faced east, and the Sea rested on them. 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. NLT 26 The walls of the Sea were about three inches thick, and its rim flared out like a cup and resembled a water lily blossom. It could hold about 11,000 gallons of water. 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. NLT 27 Huram also made ten bronze water carts, each 6 feet long, 6 feet wide, and 4 feet tall. NIV 27 He also made ten movable stands of bronze; each was four cubits long, four wide and three high. NLT 28 They were constructed with side panels braced with crossbars. NIV 28 This is how the stands were made: They had side panels attached to uprights.
