King Solomon finishes the Temple (2 Chr 4:7-4:10)

“King Solomon made ten golden lamp stands as prescribed. He set them in the temple, five on the south side and five on the north side. He also made ten tables. He placed them in the temple, five on the right side and five on the left side. He made a hundred basins of gold. He made the court of the priests, and the great court, and doors for the court. He overlaid their doors with bronze. He set the sea at the southeast corner of the house.”

This is a summary of the work in 1 Kings, chapter 7, about furnishing the Temple. The 10 golden lamp stands are the same with 5 on the south side and 5 on the north side. The 10 other tables are to the right and left rather than south and north. However, there was no mention of 100 golden basins since most of the basins were made of bronze in 1 Kings. The court of the priests was in the interior of the Temple reserved for priests only. The doors were overlaid with bronze. The bronze sea with its 12 bulls holding it up was on the southeast corner of the Temple.
