2 Kings 25:16
25:16 The bronze of the items that King Solomon made for the Lord’s temple—including the two pillars, the big bronze basin called “The Sea,” the twelve bronze bulls under “The Sea,”26 and the movable stands—was too heavy to be weighed.
tc The MT lacks “the twelve bronze bulls under ‘the Sea,’ ” but these words have probably been accidentally omitted by homoioarcton. The scribe’s eye may have jumped from the וְהָ (véha-) on וְהַבָּקָר (véhabbaqar), “and the bulls,” to the וְהָ on וְהַמְּכֹנוֹת (véhammékhonot), “and the movable stands,” causing him to leave out the intervening words. See the parallel passage in Jer 52:20.
