The altar of brass, the molten sea upon twelve oxen, the ten loaves, the candlesticks and other vessels and ornaments of the temple.

[1] He made also an altar of brass twenty cubits long, and twenty cubits broad, and ten cubits high.
Fecit quoque altare aeneum viginti cubitorum longitudinis, et viginti cubitorum latitudinis, et decem cubitorum altitudinis.

[2] Also a molten sea of ten cubits from brim to brim, round in compass: it was five cubits high, and a line of thirty cubits compassed it round about.
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] And under it there was the likeness of oxen, and certain engravings on the outside of ten cubits compassed the belly of the sea, as it were with two rows.
Similitudo quoque boum erat subter illud, et decem cubitis quaedam extrinsecus caelaturae, quasi duobus versibus alvum maris circuibant. Boves autem erant fusiles :

[4] And the oxen were cast: and the sea itself was set upon the twelve oxen, three of which looked toward the north, and other three toward the west: and other three toward the south, and the other three that remained toward the east, and the sea stood upon them: and the hinder parts of the oxen were inward under the sea.
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, oritentem, habentes mare superpositum : posteriora autem boum erant intrinsecus sub mari.

[5] Now the thickness of it was a handbreadth, and the brim of it was like the brim of a cup, or of a crisped lily: and it held three thousand measures.
Porro vastitas ejus habebat mensuram palmi, et labium illius erat quasi labium calicis, vel repandi lilii : capiebatque tria millia metretas.

[6] He made also ten lavers: and he see five on the right hand, and five on the left, to wash in them all such things as they mere to offer for holocausts: but the sea was for the priests to wash in.
Fecit quoque conchas decem : et posuit quinque a dextris, et quinque a sinistris, ut lavarent in eis omnia, quae in holocaustum oblaturi erant : porro in mari sacerdotes lavabuntur.

[7] And he made ten golden candlesticks, according to the form which they were commanded to be made by: and he set them in the temple, five on the right hand, and five on the left.
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] Moreover also ten tables: and he set them in the temple, five on the right side, and five on the left. Also a hundred bowls of gold.
Necnon et mensas decem : et posuit eas in templo, quinque a dextris, et quinque a sinistris : phialas quoque aureas centum.

[9] He made also the court of the priests, and a great hall, and doors in the hall, which he covered with brass.
Fecit etiam atrium sacerdotum, et basilicam grandem : et ostia in basilica, quae texit aere.

[10] And he set the sea on the right side over against the east toward the south.
Porro mare posuit in latere dextro contra orientem ad meridiem.

[11] And Hiram made caldrons, and fleshhooks, and bowls: and finished all the king's work in the house of God:
Fecit autem Hiram lebetes, et creagras, et phialas : et complevit omne opus regis in domo Dei :

[12] That is to say, the two pillars, and the pommels, and the chapiters, and the network, to cover the chapiters over the pommels.
hoc est, columnas duas, et epistylia, et capita, et quasi quaedam retiacula, quae capita tegerent super epistylia.

[13] And four hundred pomegranates, and two wreaths of network, so that two rows of pomegranates were joined to each wreath, to cover the pommels, and the chapiters of the pillars.
Malogranata quoque quadringenta, et retiacula duo ita ut bini ordines malogranatorum singulis retiaculis jungerentur, quae protegerent epistylia, et capita columnarum.

[14] He made also bases, and lavers, which he set upon the bases:
Bases etiam fecit, et conchas, quas superposuit basibus :

[15] One sea, and twelve oxen under the sea;
mare unum, boves quoque duodecim sub mari,

[16] And the caldrons, and fleshhooks, and bowls. All the vessels did Hiram his father make for Solomon in the house of the Lord of the finest brass.
et lebetes, et creagras, et phialas. Omnia vasa fecit Salomoni Hiram pater ejus in domo Domini ex aere mundissimo.

[17] In the country near the Jordan did the king cast them, in a clay ground between Sochot and Saredatha.
In regione Jordanis, fudit ea rex in argillosa terra inter Sochot et Saredatha.

[18] And the multitude of vessels was innumerable, so that the weight of the brass was not known.
Erat autem multitudo vasorum innumerabilis, ita ut ignoraretur pondus aeris.

[19] And Solomon made all the vessels for the house of God, and the golden altar, and the tables, upon which were the leaves of proposition,
Fecitque Salomon omnia vasa domus Dei, et altare aureum, et mensas, et super eas panes propositionis :

[20] The candlesticks also of most pure gold with their lamps to give light before the oracle, according to the manner.
candelabra quoque cum lucernis suis ut lucerent ante oraculum juxta ritum ex auro purissimo :

[21] And certain flowers, and lamps, and golden tongs: all were made of the finest gold.
et florentia quaedam, et lucernas, et forcipes aureos : omnia de auro mundissimo facta sunt.

[22] The vessels also for the perfumes, and the censers, and the bowls, and the mortars, of pure gold. And he graved the doors of the inner temple, that is, for the holy of holies: and the doors of the temple without were of gold. And thus all the work was finished which Solomon made in the house of the Lord.
Thymiateria quoque, et thuribula, et phialas, et mortariola ex auro purissimo. Et ostia caelavit templi interioris, id est, in Sancta sanctorum : et ostia templi forinsecus aurea. Sicque completum est omne opus, quod fecit Salomon in domo Domini.
