Bible: Jer 52:17-23

52:17 The Babylonians broke the two bronze pillars in the temple of the Lord, as well as the movable stands and the large bronze basin called the “The Sea.” 1  They took all the bronze to Babylon. 52:18 They also took the pots, shovels, 2  trimming shears, 3  basins, pans, and all the bronze utensils used by the priests. 4  52:19 The captain of the royal guard took the gold and silver bowls, censers, 5  basins, pots, lampstands, pans, and vessels. 6  52:20 The bronze of the items that King Solomon made for the Lord’s temple (including the two pillars, the large bronze basin called “The Sea,” the twelve bronze bulls under “The Sea,” and the movable stands 7 ) was too heavy to be weighed. 52:21 Each of the pillars was about 27 feet 8  high, about 18 feet 9  in circumference, three inches 10  thick, and hollow. 52:22 The bronze top of one pillar was about seven and one-half feet 11  high and had bronze latticework and pomegranate-shaped ornaments all around it. The second pillar with its pomegranate-shaped ornaments was like it. 52:23 There were ninety-six pomegranate-shaped ornaments on the sides; in all there were one hundred pomegranate-shaped ornaments over the latticework that went around it.
