15 He fashioned the two pillars of bronze; [a]eighteen cubits was the height of [b]each pillar, and a line of [c]twelve cubits [d]measured the circumference of both.16 He also made two capitals of cast bronze to put on the tops of the pillars; the height of the one capital was [e]five cubits and the height of the other capital was [f]five cubits.17 There were lattices of latticework and wreaths of chainwork for the capitals which were on the top of the pillars; seven for the one capital and seven for the other capital.18 So he made the pillars, and two rows around on the one lattice to cover the capitals which were on the top of the pomegranates; and so he did for the other capital.19 The capitals which were on the tops of the pillars in the porch were of lily design, four cubits.20 So there were capitals on the two pillars, also above and close to the [g]rounded projection which was beside the lattice; and the pomegranates totaled two hundred in rows around [h]both capitals.21 And he set up the pillars at the porch of the [i]main room: he set up the right pillar and named it [j]Jachin, and he set up the left pillar and named it [k]Boaz.22 On the top of the pillars was the lily design. So the work of the pillars was finished.
2 Chronicles 3:15-17New American Standard Bible (NASB)
15 He also made two pillars for the front of the house, thirty-five cubits [a]high, and the capital on the top of each was five cubits.16 He made chains in the inner sanctuary and placed them on the tops of the pillars; and he made a hundred pomegranates and placed them on the chains.17 He erected the pillars in front of the temple, one on the right and the other on the left, and named the one on the right Jachin and the one on the left Boaz.
