2 Chronicles 4:7-22

Context

4:7 He made ten gold lampstands according to specifications and put them in the temple, five on the right and five on the left. 4:8 He made ten tables and set them in the temple, five on the right and five on the left. He also made one hundred gold bowls. 4:9 He made the courtyard of the priests and the large enclosure and its doors; 1  he plated their doors with bronze. 4:10 He put “The Sea” on the south side, in the southeast corner.

4:11 Huram Abi 2  made the pots, shovels, and bowls. He finished all the work on God’s temple he had been assigned by King Solomon. 3  4:12 He made 4  the two pillars, the two bowl-shaped tops of the pillars, the latticework for the bowl-shaped tops of the two pillars, 4:13 the four hundred pomegranate-shaped ornaments for the latticework of the two pillars (each latticework had two rows of these ornaments at the bowl-shaped top of the pillar), 4:14 the ten 5  movable stands with their ten 6  basins, 4:15 the big bronze basin called “The Sea” with its twelve bulls underneath, 4:16 and the pots, shovels, and meat forks. 7  All the items King Solomon assigned Huram Abi to make for the Lord’s temple 8  were made from polished bronze. 4:17 The king had them cast in earthen foundries 9  in the region of the Jordan between Succoth and Zarethan. 4:18 Solomon made so many of these items they did not weigh the bronze. 10 

4:19 Solomon also made these items for God’s temple: the gold altar, the tables on which the Bread of the Presence 11  was kept, 4:20 the pure gold lampstands and their lamps which burned as specified at the entrance to the inner sanctuary, 4:21 the pure gold flower-shaped ornaments, lamps, and tongs, 4:22 the pure gold trimming shears, basins, pans, and censers, and the gold door sockets for the inner sanctuary (the most holy place) and for the doors of the main hall of the temple.

1 tn Heb “and the doors for the enclosure.”

2 tn Heb “Huram,” but here this refers to Huram Abi (2 Chr 2:13). The complete name has been used in the translation to avoid possible confusion with King Huram of Tyre.

3 tn Heb “Huram finished doing all the work which he did for King Solomon [on] the house of God.”

4 tn The words “he made” are added for stylistic reasons.

5 tc The Hebrew text has עָשָׂה (’asah, “he made”), which is probably a corruption of עֶשֶׂר (’eser, “ten”; see 1 Kgs 7:43).

6 tc The Hebrew text has עָשָׂה (’asah, “he made”), which is probably a corruption of עֲשָׂרָה (’asarah, “ten”; see 1 Kgs 7:43).

7 tc Some prefer to read here “bowls,” see v. 11 and 1 Kgs 7:45.

8 tn Heb “Huram Abi made for King Solomon [for] the house of the Lord.”

9 tn Or perhaps, “molds.”

10 tn Heb “Solomon made all these items in great abundance; the weight of the bronze was not sought.”

11 tn Heb “the bread of the face/presence.”

sn This bread offered to God was viewed as a perpetual offering to God. See Lev 24:5-9.
