Jachin and Boaz

These were the names of 2 huge bronze columns set up in Solomon’s temple (1 Kings 7:15-22). The bronze came from Tibhath and Cun, cities of Hadadezer.

Each was 18 cubits (over 3 stories—33 feet) high and 12 cubits (22 feet) in circumference (Jeremiah 52:21, 23; 1 Kings 7:17-21).

Their names doubtlessly had some symbolic importance.

The top of each pillar was very decorative.
