Haftara VaYakhel

I Kings 7.40-50

Hiram also made the pots, the shovels and the basins. So Hiram finished all the work that he did for King Solomon in the house of God:

The two pillars, the two bowls of the capitals that were on top of the pillars; and and the two networks to cover the two bowels of the capitals that were on top of the pillars; and the four hundred pomegranates for the two networks, two rows of pomegranates for each network, to cover the two bowls of the capitals on top of the pillars; the ten bases, and the ten lavers on the bases; and the one sea, and the twelve oxen under the sea. The pots, the shovels, and the basins, and all the vessels which Hiram made King Solomon, in the house of God, were burnished brass. In the plain of Jordan the king cast them, in the clay ground between Succoth and Zerethan. Solomon left all the vessels unweighted, because there were so many of them; the weight of brass could not be determined.

So Solomon made all the vessels that were in the house of God; the golden altar, the golden table for the show bread, the candle sticks of pure gold, five on the right side, and five on the left, before the Sanctuary; the flowers, the lamps, the tongs, of gold; the cups, snuffers, basins, spoons, firepans, of pure gold, and the hinges of gold, both for the doors of the inner house, the most holy place, and for the doors of the house, that is of the Temple.
