Eighteen cubits was the height of one pillar, and a line of twelve cubits measured its circumference; it was hollow, and its thickness was four fingers; the second pillar was the same.[a] 16 He also made two capitals of molten bronze, to set upon the tops of the pillars; the height of the one capital was five cubits, and the height of the other capital was five cubits. 17 Then he made two[b] nets of checker work with wreaths of chain work for the capitals upon the tops of the pillars; a net[c] for the one capital, and a net[d] for the other capital.
