1 Kings 7:22-24 New Life Version (NLV)

22 The top pieces on the pillars were made to look like lily flowers. So the work of the pillars was finished.

The Brass Pool

23 Now he made a large brass water pool. It was round, and as wide as five long steps. It was as tall as a man can raise his hand. And the length around it was as far as fifteen long steps. 24 Gourds went around the top of the pool. There were ten of them for every cubit. The gourds were in two rows, and made right in with the pool.

1 Kings 7:22-24 New International Version (NIV)

22 The capitals on top were in the shape of lilies. And so the work on the pillars was completed.

23 He made the Sea of cast metal, circular in shape, measuring ten cubits from rim to rim and five cubits high. It took a line of thirty cubits[a] to measure around it. 24 Below the rim, gourds encircled it—ten to a cubit. The gourds were cast in two rows in one piece with the Sea.
