Imagined ancient scene during a sacrifice at the Court of the Priests in Solomon's Temple, on mount Moriah in Jerusalem. According to the Bible, it contained the Altar of burnt-offering (2 Chr. 15:8), the Brazen Sea laver (a basin for ceremonial ablution, 4:2-5, 10) and ten other lavers (1 Kings 7:38, 39). A brazen altar stood before the Temple (2 Kings 16:14), its dimensions 20 cubits square and 10 cubits high (2 Chr. 4:1). The Great Court surrounded the whole Temple (2 Chr. 4:9). It was here that people assembled to worship. (Jeremiah 19:14; 26:2).
