15 Huram cast two bronze columns, each one 27 feet tall and 18 feet in circumference,[a] and placed them at the entrance of the Temple. 16 He also made two bronze capitals, each one 7½ feet tall, to be placed on top of the columns. 17 The top of each column was decorated with a design of interwoven chains[b]18 and two rows of bronze pomegranates.
19 The capitals were shaped like lilies, 6 feet tall, 20 and were placed on a rounded section which was above the chain design. There were 200 pomegranates in two rows around each[c] capital.
21 Huram placed these two bronze columns in front of the entrance of the Temple: the one on the south side was named Jachin[d] and the one on the north was named Boaz.[e]22 The lily-shaped bronze capitals were on top of the columns.
And so the work on the columns was completed.
1 Kings 7:15Some ancient translations each one … circumference; Hebrew the first column was 27 feet tall and the second column was 18 feet in circumference.
