Hannukah - 1 Kings 7:40-50

1 Kings 7:40-50

40  And Ḥiram made the pots and the shovels and the bowls. And Ḥiram completed doing all the work that he was to do for Sovereign Shelomoh on the House of יהוה:

41  the two columns, and the bowl-shaped capitals that were on top of the columns, and the two networks covering the two bowl-shaped capitals which were on top of the columns;

42  and the four hundred pomegranates for the two networks, two rows of pomegranates for each network to cover the two bowl-shaped capitals that were on top of the columns;

43  and the ten stands, and the ten basins on the stands;

44  and the one Sea, and twelve oxen under the Sea;

45  and the pots, and the shovels, and the bowls. And all these utensils which Ḥiram made for Sovereign Shelomoh for the House of יהוה were of polished bronze.

46  The sovereign had them cast in clay in the district of Yardĕn between Sukkoth and Tsarethan.

47  And Shelomoh left all the utensils because they were many, nor was the weight of the bronze searched out.

48  So Shelomoh made all the utensils for the House of יהוה: the altar of gold, and the table of gold on which was the showbread;

49  and the lampstands of refined gold, five on the right side and five on the left in front of the Speaking Place, with the flowers and the lamps and the snuffers of gold;

50  and the basins, and the snuffers, and the bowls, and the ladles, and the fire holders of refined gold, and the hinges of gold, both for the doors of the inner house, the Most Qodesh Place, and for the doors of the house of the Hĕyḵal.

51  Thus all the work which Sovereign Shelomoh had done for the House of יהוה was completed. And Shelomoh brought in the qodesh items of his father Dawiḏ: the silver and the gold and the utensils, and he put them in the treasuries of the House of יהוה.
