    Definitions for Jeremiah 27:19

    Sea - Large basin.

    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 27:19

    Concerning the pillars - Two brazen columns placed by Solomon in the pronaos or portico of the temple, eighteen cubits high, and twelve in circumference, 1 Kings 7:16-22; Jeremiah 52:11.

    The sea - The brazen sea, ten cubits in diameter, and thirty in circumference. It contained water for different washings in the Divine worship, and was supported on twelve brazen oxen. Perhaps these are what are called the bases here. See the parallel places at 2 Kings 25:13 (note), etc.; Jeremiah 52:17 (note), Jeremiah 52:20-21 (note), and the notes on them.
