Gourd References

(1 Ki 6:18 NIV) The inside of the temple was cedar, carved with gourds and open flowers. Everything was cedar; no stone was to be seen.

(1 Ki 7:24 NIV) Below the rim, gourds encircled it--ten to a cubit. The gourds were cast in two rows in one piece with the Sea.

(2 Ki 4:39 NIV) One of them went out into the fields to gather herbs and found a wild vine. He gathered some of its gourds and filled the fold of his cloak. When he returned, he cut them up into the pot of stew, though no one knew what they were.
