{2 Chronicles 4:5} And the thickness 5672 of it [was] an handbreadth, 2947 and the brim 8193 of it like the work 4639 of the brim 8193 of a cup, 3563 with flowers 6525 of lilies; 7799 [and] it received 2388 z8688 and held 3557 z8686 three 7969 thousand 505 baths. 1324
with flowers of lilies:
or, like a lily flower
three thousand baths:
In the parallel passage, it is said to hold only two thousand baths; which some think may be reconciled by supposing that the quantity of water which was commonly in it was 2,000 baths, but that, if filled up to the top, it would hold 3,000. But, as we have already seen that the Babylonish cubit was less than that of the ancient Hebrews, it might be the same with measures of capacity; so that 2,000 of the ancient Jewish baths might have been equal to 3,000 of those used after the captivity. The Targum cuts the knot: "It received 3,000 baths of dry measure, and held 2,000 of liquid measure." See note on 1 Kings 7:26. "And it [was] an hand breadth thick, and the brim thereof was wrought like the brim of a cup, with flowers of lilies: it contained two thousand baths." {1Kg 7:26}
