2 Chronicles 4


1  Moreover he made6213 an altar4196 of brass,5178 twenty6242 cubits520 the length753 thereof, and twenty6242 cubits520 the breadth7341 thereof, and ten6235 cubits520 the height6967 thereof.

2  Also he made6213 853 a molten3332 sea3220 of ten6235 cubits520 from brim4480 8193 to413 brim,8193 round5696 in compass,5439 and five2568 cubits520 the height6967 thereof; and a line6957 of thirty7970 cubits520 did compass5437 it round about.5439

3  And under8478 it was the similitude1823 of oxen,1241 which did compass5437 it round about:5439 5439 ten6235 in a cubit,520 compassing5362 853 the sea3220 round about.5439 Two8147 rows2905 of oxen1241 were cast,3332 when it was cast.4166

4  It stood5975 upon5921 twelve8147 6240 oxen,1241 three7969 looking6437 toward the north,6828 and three7969 looking6437 toward the west,3220 and three7969 looking6437 toward the south,5045 and three7969 looking6437 toward the east:4217 and the sea3220 was set above4480 4605 upon5921 them, and all3605 their hinder parts268 were inward.1004

5  And the thickness5672 of it was a handbreadth,2947 and the brim8193 of it like the work4639 of the brim8193 of a cup,3563 with flowers6525 of lilies;7799 and it received2388 and held3557 three7969 thousand505 baths.1324

6  He made6213 also ten6235 lavers,3595 and put5414 five2568 on the right hand,4480 3225 and five2568 on the left,4480 8040 to wash7364 in them: 853 such things as they offered4639 for the burnt offering5930 they washed1740 in them; but the sea3220 was for the priests3548 to wash7364 in.

7  And he made6213 853 ten6235 candlesticks4501 of gold2091 according to their form,4941 and set5414 them in the temple,1964 five2568 on the right hand,4480 3225 and five2568 on the left.4480 8040

8  He made6213 also ten6235 tables,7979 and placed5117 them in the temple,1964 five2568 on the right side,4480 3225 and five2568 on the left.4480 8040 And he made6213 a hundred3967 basins4219 of gold.2091

9  Furthermore he made6213 the court2691 of the priests,3548 and the great1419 court,5835 and doors1817 for the court,5835 and overlaid6823 the doors1817 of them with brass.5178

10  And he set5414 the sea3220 on the right3233 side4480 3802 of the east end,6924 over against4480 4136 the south.5045

11  And Huram2361 made6213 853 the pots,5518 and the shovels,3257 and the basins.4219 And Huram2361 finished the work3615 6213 853 4399 that834 he was to make6213 for king4428 Solomon8010 for the house1004 of God;430

12  To wit, the two8147 pillars,5982 and the pommels,1543 and the chapiters3805 which were on5921 the top7218 of the two8147 pillars,5982 and the two8147 wreaths7639 to cover3680 853 the two8147 pommels1543 of the chapiters3805 which834 were on5921 the top7218 of the pillars;5982

13  And four702 hundred3967 pomegranates7416 on the two8147 wreaths;7639 two8147 rows2905 of pomegranates7416 on each259 wreath,7639 to cover3680 853 the two8147 pommels1543 of the chapiters3805 which834 were upon5921 6440 the pillars.5982

14  He made6213 also bases,4350 and lavers3595 made6213 he upon5921 the bases;4350

15  853 One259 sea,3220 and twelve8147 6240 oxen1241 under8478 it.

16  The pots5518 also, and the shovels,3257 and the fleshhooks,4207 and all3605 their instruments,3627 did Huram2361 his father1 make6213 to king4428 Solomon8010 for the house1004 of the LORD3068 of bright4838 brass.5178

17  In the plain3603 of Jordan3383 did the king4428 cast3332 them, in the clay4568 ground127 between996 Succoth5523 and Zeredathah.6868

18  Thus Solomon8010 made6213 all3605 these428 vessels3627 in great3966 abundance:7230 for3588 the weight4948 of the brass5178 could not3808 be found out.2713

19  And Solomon8010 made6213 853 all3605 the vessels3627 that834 were for the house1004 of God,430 the golden2091 altar4196 also, and the tables7979 whereon5921 the shewbread3899 6440 was set;

20  Moreover the candlesticks4501 with their lamps,5216 that they should burn1197 after the manner4941 before6440 the oracle,1687 of pure5462 gold;2091

21  And the flowers,6525 and the lamps,5216 and the tongs,4457 made he of gold,2091 and that1931 perfect4357 gold;2091

22  And the snuffers,4212 and the basins,4219 and the spoons,3709 and the censers,4289 of pure5462 gold:2091 and the entry6607 of the house,1004 the inner6442 doors1817 thereof for the most holy6944 6944 place, and the doors1817 of the house1004 of the temple,1964 were of gold.2091


1 καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ θυσιαστήριον χαλκοῦν πήχεων εἴκοσι μῆκος καὶ τὸ εὖρος πήχεων εἴκοσι ὕψος πήχεων δέκα

2 καὶ ἐποίησεν τὴν θάλασσαν χυτήν πήχεων δέκα τὴν διαμέτρησιν στρογγύλην κυκλόθεν καὶ πήχεων πέντε τὸ ὕψος καὶ τὸ κύκλωμα πήχεων τριάκοντα

3 καὶ ὁμοίωμα μόσχων ὑποκάτωθεν αὐτῆς κύκλῳ κυκλοῦσιν αὐτήν πήχεις δέκα περιέχουσιν τὸν λουτῆρα κυκλόθεν δύο γένη ἐχώνευσαν τοὺς μόσχους ἐν τῇ χωνεύσει αὐτῶν

4 ᾗ ἐποίησαν αὐτούς δώδεκα μόσχους οἱ τρεῖς βλέποντες βορρᾶν καὶ οἱ τρεῖς βλέποντες δυσμὰς καὶ οἱ τρεῖς βλέποντες νότον καὶ οἱ τρεῖς βλέποντες κατ᾽ ἀνατολάς καὶ ἡ θάλασσα ἐπ᾽ αὐτῶν ἄνω ἦσαν τὰ ὀπίσθια αὐτῶν ἔσω

5 καὶ τὸ πάχος αὐτῆς παλαιστής καὶ τὸ χεῖλος αὐτῆς ὡς χεῖλος ποτηρίου διαγεγλυμμένα βλαστοὺς κρίνου χωροῦσαν μετρητὰς τρισχιλίους καὶ ἐξετέλεσεν

6 καὶ ἐποίησεν λουτῆρας δέκα καὶ ἔθηκεν τοὺς πέντε ἐκ δεξιῶν καὶ τοὺς πέντε ἐξ ἀριστερῶν τοῦ πλύνειν ἐν αὐτοῖς τὰ ἔργα τῶν ὁλοκαυτωμάτων καὶ ἀποκλύζειν ἐν αὐτοῖς καὶ ἡ θάλασσα εἰς τὸ νίπτεσθαι τοὺς ἱερεῖς ἐν αὐτῇ

7 καὶ ἐποίησεν τὰς λυχνίας τὰς χρυσᾶς δέκα κατὰ τὸ κρίμα αὐτῶν καὶ ἔθηκεν ἐν τῷ ναῷ πέντε ἐκ δεξιῶν καὶ πέντε ἐξ ἀριστερῶν

8 καὶ ἐποίησεν τραπέζας δέκα καὶ ἔθηκεν ἐν τῷ ναῷ πέντε ἐκ δεξιῶν καὶ πέντε ἐξ εὐωνύμων καὶ ἐποίησεν φιάλας χρυσᾶς ἑκατόν

9 καὶ ἐποίησεν τὴν αὐλὴν τῶν ἱερέων καὶ τὴν αὐλὴν τὴν μεγάλην καὶ θύρας τῇ αὐλῇ καὶ θυρώματα αὐτῶν κατακεχαλκωμένα χαλκῷ

10 καὶ τὴν θάλασσαν ἔθηκεν ἀπὸ γωνίας τοῦ οἴκου ἐκ δεξιῶν ὡς πρὸς ἀνατολὰς κατέναντι

11 καὶ ἐποίησεν Χιραμ τὰς κρεάγρας καὶ τὰ πυρεῖα καὶ τὴν ἐσχάραν τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου καὶ πάντα τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ καὶ συνετέλεσεν Χιραμ ποιῆσαι πᾶσαν τὴν ἐργασίαν ἣν ἐποίησεν Σαλωμων τῷ βασιλεῖ ἐν οἴκῳ τοῦ θεοῦ

12 στύλους δύο καὶ ἐπ᾽ αὐτῶν γωλαθ τῇ χωθαρεθ ἐπὶ τῶν κεφαλῶν τῶν στύλων δύο καὶ δίκτυα δύο συγκαλύψαι τὰς κεφαλὰς τῶν χωθαρεθ ἅ ἐστιν ἐπὶ τῶν κεφαλῶν τῶν στύλων

13 καὶ κώδωνας χρυσοῦς τετρακοσίους εἰς τὰ δύο δίκτυα καὶ δύο γένη ῥοΐσκων ἐν τῷ δικτύῳ τῷ ἑνὶ τοῦ συγκαλύψαι τὰς δύο γωλαθ τῶν χωθαρεθ ἅ ἐστιν ἐπάνω τῶν στύλων

14 καὶ τὰς μεχωνωθ ἐποίησεν δέκα καὶ τοὺς λουτῆρας ἐποίησεν ἐπὶ τῶν μεχωνωθ

15 καὶ τὴν θάλασσαν μίαν καὶ τοὺς μόσχους τοὺς δώδεκα ὑποκάτω αὐτῆς

16 καὶ τοὺς ποδιστῆρας καὶ τοὺς ἀναλημπτῆρας καὶ τοὺς λέβητας καὶ τὰς κρεάγρας καὶ πάντα τὰ σκεύη αὐτῶν ἃ ἐποίησεν Χιραμ καὶ ἀνήνεγκεν τῷ βασιλεῖ Σαλωμων ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου χαλκοῦ καθαροῦ

17 ἐν τῷ περιχώρῳ τοῦ Ιορδάνου ἐχώνευσεν αὐτὰ ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐν τῷ πάχει τῆς γῆς ἐν οἴκῳ Σοκχωθ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον Σιρδαθα

18 καὶ ἐποίησεν Σαλωμων πάντα τὰ σκεύη ταῦτα εἰς πλῆθος σφόδρα ὅτι οὐκ ἐξέλιπεν ὁλκὴ τοῦ χαλκοῦ

19 καὶ ἐποίησεν Σαλωμων πάντα τὰ σκεύη οἴκου κυρίου καὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον τὸ χρυσοῦν καὶ τὰς τραπέζας καὶ ἐπ᾽ αὐτῶν ἄρτοι προθέσεως

20 καὶ τὰς λυχνίας καὶ τοὺς λύχνους τοῦ φωτὸς κατὰ τὸ κρίμα καὶ κατὰ πρόσωπον τοῦ δαβιρ χρυσίου καθαροῦ

21 καὶ λαβίδες αὐτῶν καὶ οἱ λύχνοι αὐτῶν καὶ τὰς φιάλας καὶ τὰς θυΐσκας καὶ τὰ πυρεῖα χρυσίου καθαροῦ

22 καὶ ἡ θύρα τοῦ οἴκου ἡ ἐσωτέρα εἰς τὰ ἅγια τῶν ἁγίων εἰς τὰς θύρας τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ ναοῦ χρυσᾶς

1 Fecit quoque altare æneum viginti cubitorum longitudinis, et viginti cubitorum latitudinis, et decem cubitorum altitudinis.

2 Mare etiam fusile decem cubitis a labio usque ad labium, rotundum per circuitum: quinque cubitos habebat altitudinis, et funiculus triginta cubitorum ambiebat gyrum ejus.

3 Similitudo quoque boum erat subter illud, et decem cubitis quædam extrinsecus cælaturæ, quasi duobus versibus alvum maris circuibant. Boves autem erant fusiles:

4 et ipsum mare super duodecim boves impositum erat, quorum tres respiciebant ad aquilonem, et alii tres ad occidentem: porro tres alii meridiem, et tres qui reliqui erant, orientem, habentes mare superpositum: posteriora autem boum erant intrinsecus sub mari.

5 Porro vastitas ejus habebat mensuram palmi, et labium illius erat quasi labium calicis, vel repandi lilii: capiebatque tria millia metretas.

6 Fecit quoque conchas decem: et posuit quinque a dextris, et quinque a sinistris, ut lavarent in eis omnia quæ in holocaustum oblaturi erant: porro in mari sacerdotes lavabantur.

7 Fecit autem et candelabra aurea decem secundum speciem qua jussa erant fieri: et posuit ea in templo, quinque a dextris, et quinque a sinistris.

8 Necnon et mensas decem: et posuit eas in templo, quinque a dextris, et quinque a sinistris: phialas quoque aureas centum.

9 Fecit etiam atrium sacerdotum, et basilicam grandem: et ostia in basilica, quæ texit ære.

10 Porro mare posuit in latere dextro contra orientem ad meridiem.

11 Fecit autem Hiram lebetes, et creagras, et phialas: et complevit omne opus regis in domo Dei:

12 hoc est, columnas duas, et epistylia, et capita, et quasi quædam retiacula, quæ capita tegerent super epistylia.

13 Malogranata quoque quadringenta, et retiacula duo ita ut bini ordines malogranatorum singulis retiaculis jungerentur, quæ protegerent epistylia, et capita columnarum.

14 Bases etiam fecit, et conchas, quas superposuit basibus:

15 mare unum, boves quoque duodecim sub mari,

16 et lebetes, et creagras, et phialas. Omnia vasa fecit Salomoni Hiram pater ejus in domo Domini ex ære mundissimo.

17 In regione Jordanis, fudit ea rex in argillosa terra inter Sochot et Saredatha.

18 Erat autem multitudo vasorum innumerabilis, ita ut ignoraretur pondus æris.

19 Fecitque Salomon omnia vasa domus Dei, et altare aureum, et mensas, et super eas panes propositionis:

20 candelabra quoque cum lucernis suis ut lucerent ante oraculum juxta ritum ex auro purissimo:

21 et florentia quædam, et lucernas, et forcipes aureos: omnia de auro mundissimo facta sunt.

22 Thymiateria quoque, et thuribula, et phialas, et mortariola ex auro purissimo. Et ostia cælavit templi interioris, id est, in Sancta sanctorum: et ostia templi forinsecus aurea. Sicque completum est omne opus quod fecit Salomon in domo Domini.
