KI1 10:18 Moreover the king made a great throne of ivory, and overlaid
it with the best gold.
KI1 10:19 The throne had six steps, and the top of the throne was round
behind: and there were stays on either side on the place of the seat,
and two lions stood beside the stays.
KI1 10:20 And twelve lions stood there on the one side and on the other
upon the six steps: there was not the like made in any kingdom.
KI1 10:21 And all king Solomon's drinking vessels were of gold, and all
the vessels of the house of the forest of Lebanon were of pure gold;
none were of silver: it was nothing accounted of in the days of Solomon.
