16 He also made two capitals(A) of cast bronze to set on top of the pillars; 7½ feet[a] was the height of the first capital, and 7½ feet[b] was also the height of the second capital. 17 The capitals on top of the pillars had gratings of latticework, wreaths[c] made of chainwork—seven for the first capital and seven for the second.

18 He made the pillars with two encircling rows of pomegranates on the one grating to cover the capital on top; he did the same for the second capital. 19 And the capitals on top of the pillars in the portico were shaped like lilies, six feet[d] high. 20 The capitals on the two pillars were also immediately above the rounded surface next to the grating, and 200 pomegranates(B) were in rows encircling each[e] capital.
