First Kings 7:26

This website has been moved to: https://debatemap.live

1 Kings 7:26: It was a handbreadth thick; and its brim was shaped like the brim of a cup, like a lily blossom. It contained two thousand baths.

2 Chronicles 4:5: It was a handbreadth thick; and its brim was shaped like the brim of a cup, like a lily blossom. It contained three thousand baths.

First Kings says that Solomon's molten sea contained 2,000 baths, but Second Chronicles says that Solomon's molten sea contained 3,000 baths.

This is most likely just the result of scribal copying errors.
