1 Kings 7:23-45 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.
Below the rim, gourds encircled it--ten to a cubit. The gourds were cast in
two rows in one piece with the Sea. 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. 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. He also made ten movable stands of
bronze; each was four cubits long, four wide and three high.
This is how the stands were made: They had side panels attached to uprights.
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. Each stand had four bronze wheels with bronze axles,
and each had a basin resting on four supports, cast with wreaths on each
side. 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. 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. The wheels were
made like chariot wheels; the axles, rims, spokes and hubs were all of cast
metal. Each stand had four handles, one on each corner, projecting
from the stand. 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. 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. This is the way he made the ten stands.
They were all cast in the same molds and were identical in size and shape.
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. 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. 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:
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; 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); the ten stands with their ten basins;
the Sea and the twelve bulls under it; 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.

of Israel from Lebo Hamath to the Sea of the Arabah, in accordance
with the word of the LORD, the God of Israel, spoken through his servant
Jonah son of Amittai, the prophet from Gath Hepher.

it--ten to a cubit. The bulls were cast in two rows in one piece with the

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.

placed five on the south side and five on the north. In them the things to
be used for the burnt offerings were rinsed, but the Sea was to be
used by the priests for washing.

side, at the southeast corner.
