1 Kings 7:23-25 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

The Reservoir

23 He made the cast metal reservoir,[a] 15 feet[b] from brim to brim, perfectly round. It was 7½ feet[c] high and 45 feet[d] in circumference. 24 Ornamental gourds encircled it below the brim, 10 every half yard,[e] completely encircling the reservoir. The gourds were cast in two rows when the reservoir was cast. 25 It stood on 12 oxen, three facing north, three facing west, three facing south, and three facing east. The reservoir was on top of them and all their hindquarters were toward the center.
