The Babylonians took all the valuable precious vessels (Jer 52:18-52:19)

“The captain of the guard

Took away

The pots,

The shovels,

The snuffers,

The basins,

The ladles.

They took away

All the vessels of bronze

Used in the temple service.

The captain of the guard

Took away

The small bowls,

The fire pans,

The basins,

The pots,

The lamp stands,

The ladles,

The bowls for libation.

He took both

Those of gold

With those of silver.”

This is slightly more detailed than the listing found in 2 Kings, chapter 25. The captain of the guard took these Temple vessels that were used in the worship services, although it is not clear whether he did this before he burned the Temple or after the burning. Nevertheless he took pots, shovels, snuffers, basins, ladles, and all the bronze vessels used in the Temple service. He also took away the small bowls, the fire pans, the pots, the lamp stands, and the bowls for libation, whether they were gold or silver.
