1 Kings 7:22-24 Living Bible (TLB)

16-22 At the tops of the pillars he made two lily-shaped capitals from molten bronze, each 7½ feet high. The upper part of each capital was shaped like a lily, six feet high. Each capital was decorated with seven sets of bronze, chain-designed lattices and four hundred pomegranates in two rows. Hiram set these pillars at the entrance of the Temple. The one on the south was named the Jachin Pillar,[a] and the one on the north, the Boaz Pillar.*

23 Then Hiram cast a round bronze tank, 7½ feet high and 15 feet from brim to brim; 45 feet in circumference. 24 On the underside of the rim were two rows of ornaments an inch or two apart,[b] which were cast along with the tank.


  1. 1 Kings 7:16 Jachin Pillar and Boaz Pillar. Jachin means “to establish,” and Boaz means “strength.”
  2. 1 Kings 7:24 an inch or two apart, literally, “ten in a cubit.”
