|King Solomon sent to Tyre and brought Huram,
|whose mother was a widow from the tribe of Naphtali and whose father was a man of Tyre and a craftsman in bronze. Huram was highly skilled and experienced in all kinds of bronze work. He came to King Solomon and did all the work assigned to him.
|He cast two bronze pillars, each eighteen cubits high and twelve cubits around, by line.
|He also made two capitals of cast bronze to set on the tops of the pillars; each capital was five cubits high.
|A network of interwoven chains festooned the capitals on top of the pillars, seven for each capital.
|He made pomegranates in two rows encircling each network to decorate the capitals on top of the pillars. He did the same for each capital.
|The capitals on top of the pillars in the portico were in the shape of lilies, four cubits high.
|On the capitals of both pillars, above the bowl-shaped part next to the network, were the two hundred pomegranates in rows all around.
|He erected the pillars at the portico of the temple. The pillar to the south he named Jakin and the one to the north Boaz.
|The capitals on top were in the shape of lilies. And so the work on the pillars was completed.
