23 He also he made the [a]Sea of cast metal[b]ten cubits from brim to brim, circular in shape, and its height was five cubits, and [c]it was [d]thirty cubits in circumference.24 Under its brim gourds went around encircling it ten to a cubit, completely surrounding the Sea; the gourds were in two rows, cast [e]with the rest.25 It was standing on twelve oxen, three facing north, three facing west, three facing south, and three facing east; and the Sea was set on top of them, and all their rear parts turned inward.26 And it was a [f]hand width thick, and its brim was made like the brim of a cup, like a lily blossom; it could hold [g]two thousand baths.

The oxen were in two rows, cast [g]in one piece.4 It was standing on twelve oxen, three facing north, three facing west, three facing south, and three facing east; and the Sea was set on top of them and all their hindquarters turned inward.
