laver

laver (Lay´vuhr)

A large copper or bronze vessel used for priestly ablutions in the tabernacle (Exod 30:17-21) and the Temple. It stood near the altar (Exod 40:7), and, according to (Exod 38:8), was fashioned from the mirrors of women ministering at the door of the tent of meeting. Solomon’s Temple had ten lavers (1Kgs 7:30; 1Kgs 7:38; 1Kgs 7:40) made by Hiram of Tyre.
