seven for the one chapiter, and seven for the other chapiter.

18 And he made the pillars, and two rows round about upon the one network, to cover the chapiters that were upon the top, with pomegranates: and so did he for the other chapiter.

19 And the chapiters that were upon the top of the pillars were of lily work in the porch, four cubits.

20 And the chapiters upon the two pillars had pomegranates also above, over against the belly which was by the network : and the pomegranates were two hundred in rows round about upon the other chapiter.

21 - And he set up the pillars in the porch of the temple:

and he set up the right pillar, and called the name thereof That is, Ile * Jachin : and he set up the left pillar, and called the name + That is, in it thereof + Boaz.

22 And upon the top of the pillars was lily work : so was
the work of the pillars finished.

1 Moreover he made an altar of brass, twenty cubits the
length thereof, and twenty cubits the breadth thereof, and
ten cubits the height thereof.

23 | And he made a molten' sea, ten cubits I from the

24 And under the brim of it round about there were knops 1 2 Clır. iv. 3. compassing it, ten in a cubit, i compassing the sea round

about: the knops were cast in two rows, when it was cast.

25 It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking toward the north, and three looking toward the west, and three looking toward the south, and three looking toward the east : and the sea was set above upon them, and all their hinder parts were inward.

26 And it was an handbreadth thick, and the brim thereof was wrought like the brim of a cup, with flowers of lilies : it contained two thousand baths,

27 9 And he made ten bases of brass; -four cubits was the length of one base, and four cubits the breadth thereof, and three cubits the height of it.

28 And the work of the bases was on this manner: they had borders, and the borders were between the ledges :

31 And the mouth of it within the chapiter and above was a cubit: but the mouth thereof was round after the work of the base, a cubit and an half: and also upon

the mouth of it were gravings with their borders, foursquare, not round.

32 And under the borders were four wheels; and the axletrees of the wheels were * joined to the base : and the height and of a wheel was a cubit and half a cubit.

33 And the work of the wheels was like the work of a chariot wheel: their axletrees, and their naves, and their felloes, and their spokes, were all molten.

34 And there were four undersetters to the four corners of one base : and the undersetters were of the very base itself.

35 And in the top of the base was there a round compass of half a cubit high : and on the top of the base the ledges thereof and the borders thereof were of the same.

36 For on the plates of the ledges thereof, and on the borders thereof, he graved cherubims, lions, and palm trees, according to the † proportion of every one, and additions 1.Heb. naked, round about.

37 After this manner he made the ten bases : all of them had one casting, one measure, and one size.
