Dear Liz,

You ask:

>How do you translate this verse? Does it imply
>that all the temple vessels were brought out as bouillon,
>or ingots or something, not as vessels???
>There's no particle  k there.

HH: Please see GKC 123e, which speaks of "repetition to express an
exceptional or at least superfine quality; e.g. 2 K 25:15 'which were of
gold, gold, of silver, silver,' i.e. made of pure gold and pure silver."
