KI1 7:23 And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the
other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a
line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.
KI1 7:24 And under the brim of it round about there were knops
compassing it, ten in a cubit, compassing the sea round about: the knops
were cast in two rows, when it was cast.
KI1 7:25 It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking toward the north, and
three looking toward the west, and three looking toward the south, and
three looking toward the east: and the sea was set above upon them, and
all their hinder parts were inward.
