katapi HOME 1 Kings 7:27-39 - The Bronze carts.  1Kgs.7.27-39

7 27 He also made the ten stands of bronze; each stand was four cubits long, four cubits wide, and three cubits high. 7 28 This was the construction of the stands: they had panels, and the panels were set in the frames 7 29 and on the panels that were set in the frames were lions, oxen, and cherubim. Upon the frames, both above and below the lions and oxen, there were wreaths of beveled work. 7 30 Moreover each stand had four bronze wheels and axles of bronze; and at the four corners were supports for a laver. The supports were cast, with wreaths at the side of each. 7 31 Its opening was within a crown which projected upward one cubit; its opening was round, as a pedestal is made, a cubit and a half deep. At its opening there were carvings; and its panels were square, not round. 7 32 And the four wheels were underneath the panels; the axles of the wheels were of one piece with the stands; and the height of a wheel was a cubit and a half. 7 33 The wheels were made like a chariot wheel; their axles, their rims, their spokes, and their hubs, were all cast. 7 34 There were four supports at the four corners of each stand; the supports were of one piece with the stands. 7 35 And on the top of the stand there was a round band half a cubit high; and on the top of the stand its stays and its panels were of one piece with it. 7 36 And on the surfaces of its stays and on its panels, he carved cherubim, lions, and palm trees, according to the space of each, with wreaths round about. 7 37 After this manner he made the ten stands; all of them were cast alike, of the same measure and the same form.

7 38 And he made ten lavers of bronze; each laver held forty baths, each laver measured four cubits, and there was a laver for each of the ten stands. 7 39 And he set the stands, five on the south side of the house, and five on the north side of the house; and he set the sea on the southeast corner of the house.
