1 Kings 7:13-51

And king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>
sent
<07971> (8799)
and fetched
<03947> (8799)
Hiram
<02438>
out of Tyre
<06865>_.
{Hiram: also called, Huram}
He [was] a widow's
<0802> <0490>
son
<01121>
of the tribe
<04294>
of Naphtali
<05321>_,
and his father
<01>
[was] a man
<0376>
of Tyre
<06876>_,
a worker
<02790> (8802)
in brass
<05178>_:
and he was filled
<04390> (8735)
with wisdom
<02451>_,
and understanding
<08394>_,
and cunning
<01847>
to work
<06213> (8800)
all works
<04399>
in brass
<05178>_.
And he came
<0935> (8799)
to king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>_,
and wrought
<06213> (8799)
all his work
<04399>_.
{a widow's...: Heb. the son of a widow woman}
For he cast
<06696> (8799)
two
<08147>
pillars
<05982>
of brass
<05178>_,
of eighteen
<08083> <06240>
cubits
<0520>
high
<06967>
apiece
<05982> <0259>_:
and a line
<02339>
of twelve
<08147> <06240>
cubits
<0520>
did compass
<05437> (0)
either
<08145>
of them about
<05437> (8799)_.
{cast: Heb. fashioned}
And he made
<06213> (8804)
two
<08147>
chapiters
<03805>
[of] molten
<03332> (8716)
brass
<05178>_,
to set
<05414> (8800)
upon the tops
<07218>
of the pillars
<05982>_:
the height
<06967>
of the one
<0259>
chapiter
<03805>
[was] five
<02568>
cubits
<0520>_,
and the height
<06967>
of the other
<08145>
chapiter
<03805>
[was] five
<02568>
cubits
<0520>_:
[And] nets
<07638>
of checker
<07639>
work
<04639>_,
and wreaths
<01434>
of chain
<08333>
work
<04639>_,
for the chapiters
<03805>
which [were] upon the top
<07218>
of the pillars
<05982>_;
seven
<07651>
for the one
<0259>
chapiter
<03805>_,
and seven
<07651>
for the other
<08145>
chapiter
<03805>_.
And he made
<06213> (8799)
the pillars
<05982>_,
and two
<08147>
rows
<02905>
round about
<05439>
upon the one
<0259>
network
<07639>_,
to cover
<03680> (8763)
the chapiters
<03805>
that [were] upon the top
<07218>_,
with pomegranates
<07416>_:
and so did
<06213> (8804)
he for the other
<08145>
chapiter
<03805>_.
And the chapiters
<03805>
that [were] upon the top
<07218>
of the pillars
<05982>
[were] of lily
<07799>
work
<04639>
in the porch
<0197>_,
four
<0702>
cubits
<0520>_.
And the chapiters
<03805>
upon the two
<08147>
pillars
<05982>
[had pomegranates] also above
<04605>_,
over against
<05980>
the belly
<0990>
which [was] by
<05676>
the network
<07639>_:
and the pomegranates
<07416>
[were] two hundred
<03967>
in rows
<02905>
round about
<05439>
upon the other
<08145>
chapiter
<03805>_.
And he set up
<06965> (8686)
the pillars
<05982>
in the porch
<0197>
of the temple
<01964>_:
and he set up
<06965> (8686)
the right
<03233>
pillar
<05982>_,
and called
<07121> (8799)
the name
<08034>
thereof Jachin
<03199>_:
and he set up
<06965> (8686)
the left
<08042>
pillar
<05982>_,
and called
<07121> (8799)
the name
<08034>
thereof Boaz
<01162>_.
{Jachin: that is, He shall establish} {Boaz: that is, In it is strength}
And upon the top
<07218>
of the pillars
<05982>
[was] lily
<07799>
work
<04639>_:
so was the work
<04399>
of the pillars
<05982>
finished
<08552> (8799)_.
And he made
<06213> (8799)
a molten
<03332> (8716)
sea
<03220>_,
ten
<06235>
cubits
<0520>
from the one brim
<08193>
to the other
<08193>_:
[it was] round
<05696>
all about
<05439>_,
and his height
<06967>
[was] five
<02568>
cubits
<0520>_:
and a line
<06957> (8675) <06961>
of thirty
<07970>
cubits
<0520>
did compass
<05437> (8799)
it round about
<05439>_.
{from...: Heb. from his brim to his brim}
And under the brim
<08193>
of it round about
<05439>
[there were] knops
<06497>
compassing
<05437> (8802)
it, ten
<06235>
in a cubit
<0520>_,
compassing
<05362> (8688)
the sea
<03220>
round about
<05439>_:
the knops
<06497>
[were] cast
<03333>
in two
<08147>
rows
<02905>_,
when it was cast
<03332> (8803)_.
It stood
<05975> (8802)
upon twelve
<08147> <06240>
oxen
<01241>_,
three
<07969>
looking
<06437> (8802)
toward the north
<06828>_,
and three
<07969>
looking
<06437> (8802)
toward the west
<03220>_,
and three
<07969>
looking
<06437> (8802)
toward the south
<05045>_,
and three
<07969>
looking
<06437> (8802)
toward the east
<04217>_:
and the sea
<03220>
[was set] above
<04605>
upon them, and all their hinder parts
<0268>
[were] inward
<01004>_.
And it [was] an hand breadth
<02947>
thick
<05672>_,
and the brim
<08193>
thereof was wrought
<04639>
like the brim
<08193>
of a cup
<03563>_,
with flowers
<06525>
of lilies
<07799>_:
it contained
<03557> (8686)
two thousand
<0505>
baths
<01324>_.
And he made
<06213> (8799)
ten
<06235>
bases
<04350>
of brass
<05178>_;
four
<0702>
cubits
<0520>
[was] the length
<0753>
of one
<0259>
base
<04350>_,
and four
<0702>
cubits
<0520>
the breadth
<07341>
thereof, and three
<07969>
cubits
<0520>
the height
<06967>
of it.
And the work
<04639>
of the bases
<04350>
[was] on this [manner]: they had borders
<04526>_,
and the borders
<04526>
[were] between the ledges
<07948>_:
And on the borders
<04526>
that [were] between the ledges
<07948>
[were] lions
<0738>_,
oxen
<01241>_,
and cherubims
<03742>_:
and upon the ledges
<07948>
[there was] a base
<03653>
above
<04605>_:
and beneath the lions
<0738>
and oxen
<01241>
[were] certain additions
<03914>
made of thin
<04174>
work
<04639>_.
And every
<0259>
base
<04350>
had four
<0702>
brasen
<05178>
wheels
<0212>_,
and plates
<05633>
of brass
<05178>_:
and the four
<0702>
corners
<06471>
thereof had undersetters
<03802>_:
under the laver
<03595>
[were] undersetters
<03802>
molten
<03332> (8803)_,
at the side
<05676>
of every
<0376>
addition
<03914>_.
And the mouth
<06310>
of it within
<01004>
the chapiter
<03805>
and above
<04605>
[was] a cubit
<0520>_:
but the mouth
<06310>
thereof [was] round
<05696>
[after] the work
<04639>
of the base
<03653>_,
a cubit
<0520>
and an half
<02677>_:
and also upon the mouth
<06310>
of it [were] gravings
<04734>
with their borders
<04526>_,
foursquare
<07251> (8794)_,
not round
<05696>_.
And under
<08478>
the borders
<04526>
[were] four
<0702>
wheels
<0212>_;
and the axletrees
<03027>
of the wheels
<0212>
[were joined] to the base
<04350>_:
and the height
<06967>
of a
<0259>
wheel
<0212>
[was] a cubit
<0520>
and half
<02677>
a cubit
<0520>_.
{joined...: Heb. in the base}
And the work
<04639>
of the wheels
<0212>
[was] like the work
<04639>
of a chariot
<04818>
wheel
<0212>_:
their axletrees
<03027>_,
and their naves
<01354>_,
and their felloes
<02839>_,
and their spokes
<02840>_,
[were] all molten
<03332> (8716)_.
And [there were] four
<0702>
undersetters
<03802>
to the four
<0702>
corners
<06438>
of one
<0259>
base
<04350>_:
[and] the undersetters
<03802>
[were] of the very base
<04350>
itself.
And in the top
<07218>
of the base
<04350>
[was there] a round
<05696>
compass
<05439>
of half
<02677>
a cubit
<0520>
high
<06967>_:
and on the top
<07218>
of the base
<04350>
the ledges
<03027>
thereof and the borders
<04526>
thereof [were] of the same.
For on the plates
<03871>
of the ledges
<03027>
thereof, and on the borders
<04526>
thereof, he graved
<06605> (8762)
cherubims
<03742>_,
lions
<0738>_,
and palm trees
<08561>_,
according to the proportion
<04626>
of every one
<0376>_,
and additions
<03914>
round about
<05439>_.
{proportion: Heb. nakedness}
After this [manner] he made
<06213> (8804)
the ten
<06235>
bases
<04350>_:
all of them had one
<0259>
casting
<04165>_,
one
<0259>
measure
<04060>_,
[and] one
<0259>
size
<07095>_.
Then made
<06213> (8799)
he ten
<06235>
lavers
<03595>
of brass
<05178>_:
one
<0259>
laver
<03595>
contained
<03557> (8686)
forty
<0705>
baths
<01324>_:
[and] every
<0259>
laver
<03595>
was four
<0702>
cubits
<0520>_:
[and] upon every one
<0259>
of the ten
<06235>
bases
<04350>
one
<0259>
laver
<03595>_.
And he put
<05414> (8799)
five
<02568>
bases
<04350>
on the right
<03225>
side
<03802>
of the house
<01004>_,
and five
<02568>
on the left
<08040>
side
<03802>
of the house
<01004>_:
and he set
<05414> (8804)
the sea
<03220>
on the right
<03233>
side
<03802>
of the house
<01004>
eastward
<06924>
over against
<04136>
the south
<05045>_.
{side: Heb. shoulder}
And Hiram
<02438>
made
<06213> (8799)
the lavers
<03595>_,
and the shovels
<03257>_,
and the basons
<04219>_.
So Hiram
<02438>
made
<03615> (8762)
an end of doing
<06213> (8800)
all the work
<04399>
that he made
<06213> (8804)
king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>
for the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_:
{And Hiram: Heb. And Hirom}
The two
<08147>
pillars
<05982>_,
and the [two] bowls
<01543>
of the chapiters
<03805>
that [were] on the top
<07218>
of the two
<08147>
pillars
<05982>_;
and the two
<08147>
networks
<07639>_,
to cover
<03680> (8763)
the two
<08147>
bowls
<01543>
of the chapiters
<03805>
which [were] upon the top
<07218>
of the pillars
<05982>_;
And four
<0702>
hundred
<03967>
pomegranates
<07416>
for the two
<08147>
networks
<07639>_,
[even] two
<08147>
rows
<02905>
of pomegranates
<07416>
for one
<0259>
network
<07639>_,
to cover
<03680> (8763)
the two
<08147>
bowls
<01543>
of the chapiters
<03805>
that [were] upon
<06440>
the pillars
<05982>_;
{upon...: Heb. upon the face of the pillars}
And the ten
<06235>
bases
<04350>_,
and ten
<06235>
lavers
<03595>
on the bases
<04350>_;
And one
<0259>
sea
<03220>_,
and twelve
<08147> <06240>
oxen
<01241>
under the sea
<03220>_;
And the pots
<05518>_,
and the shovels
<03257>_,
and the basons
<04219>_:
and all these vessels
<03627>_,
which Hiram
<02438>
made
<06213> (8804)
to king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>
for the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
[were of] bright
<04178> (8794)
brass
<05178>_.
{bright: Heb. made bright or, scoured}
In the plain
<03603>
of Jordan
<03383>
did the king
<04428>
cast
<03332> (8804)
them, in the clay
<04568>
ground
<0127>
between Succoth
<05523>
and Zarthan
<06891>_.
{in...: Heb. in the thickness of the ground}
And Solomon
<08010>
left
<03240> (8686)
all the vessels
<03627>
[unweighed], because they were exceeding
<03966> <03966>
many
<07230>_:
neither was the weight
<04948>
of the brass
<05178>
found out
<02713> (8738)_.
{because...: Heb. for the exceeding multitude} {found: Heb. searched}
And Solomon
<08010>
made
<06213> (8799)
all the vessels
<03627>
that [pertained] unto the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_:
the altar
<04196>
of gold
<02091>_,
and the table
<07979>
of gold
<02091>_,
whereupon the shewbread
<03899> <06440>
[was],
And the candlesticks
<04501>
of pure
<05462> (8803)
gold
<02091>_,
five
<02568>
on the right
<03225>
[side], and five
<02568>
on the left
<08040>_,
before
<06440>
the oracle
<01687>_,
with the flowers
<06525>_,
and the lamps
<05216>_,
and the tongs
<04457>
[of] gold
<02091>_,
And the bowls
<05592>_,
and the snuffers
<04212>_,
and the basons
<04219>_,
and the spoons
<03709>_,
and the censers
<04289>
[of] pure
<05462> (8803)
gold
<02091>_;
and the hinges
<06596>
[of] gold
<02091>_,
[both] for the doors
<01817>
of the inner
<06442>
house
<01004>_,
the most
<06944>
holy
<06944>
[place, and] for the doors
<01817>
of the house
<01004>_,
[to wit], of the temple
<01964>_.
{censers: Heb. ash pans}
So was ended
<07999> (8799)
all the work
<04399>
that king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>
made
<06213> (8804)
for the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
And Solomon
<08010>
brought in
<0935> (8686)
the things which David
<01732>
his father
<01>
had dedicated
<06944>_;
[even] the silver
<03701>_,
and the gold
<02091>_,
and the vessels
<03627>_,
did he put
<05414> (8804)
among the treasures
<0214>
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
{things...: Heb. holy things of David}
