16  The pots also, and the shovels, and the flesh-hooks, and all the vessels thereof, did Huram his master craftsman make for king Solomon for the house of YHWH of bright brass.

17  In the plain of the Jordan did the king cast them, in the clay ground between Succoth and Zeredah.

18  Thus Solomon made all these vessels in great abundance; for the weight of the brass could not be found out.

21  And their snuffers, and their lamps were made, and he made the bowls, and the censers, and the fire-pans, of pure gold.

21  and certain flowers, and lamps, and gold tongs. All these were made from the purest gold.

22  and the snuffers, and the basins, and the pans, and the fire-pans, of pure gold. And as for the entry of the house, the inner doors thereof for the most holy place, and the doors of the house, that is, of the temple, were of gold.

22  And there was the inner door of the house opening into the holy of holies, and he made the inner doors of the temple of gold. So all the work which Solomon wrought for the house of the Lord was finished.

22  Also, the vessels for the perfumes, and the censers, and the bowls, and the little mortars were from the purest gold. And he engraved the doors of the inner temple, that is, for the Holy of Holies. And the doors of the outer temple were of gold. And so, every work was completed that Solomon made in the house of the Lord.
