The Bible in Its Traditions

2 Chronicles 3:15–17


15  Also he made before the house two pillars of thirty and five cubits high, and the capital that was on the top of each of them was five cubits.

15  Also he made in front of the house two pillars, in height thirty-five cubits, and their chapters of five cubits.

15  And also, before the doors of the temple, there were two pillars, having a height of thirty-five cubits. But their heads were of five cubits.


16  And he made chains in the Sanctuary, and put them on the tops of the pillars; and he made a hundred pomegranates, and put them on the chains.

16  Then too, there were something like little chains on the oracle, and he placed these upon the heads of the pillars. And there were one hundred pomegranates, which he placed between the little chains.

17  And he set up the pillars before the temple, one on the right hand, and the other on the left; and called the name of that on the right hand Jachin, and the name of that on the left Boaz.

17  Also, he placed these pillars in the vestibule of the temple, one to the right, and the other to the left. The one that was on the right, he called Jachin; and the one that was on the left, Boaz.
