1 Kings 6:1-38

And it came to pass in the four
<0702>
hundred
<03967> <08141>
and eightieth
<08084>
year
<08141>
after the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
were come out
<03318> (8800)
of the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
in the fourth
<07243>
year
<08141>
of Solomon's
<08010>
reign
<04427> (8800)
over Israel
<03478>_,
in the month
<02320>
Zif
<02099>_,
which [is] the second
<08145>
month
<02320>_,
that he began to build
<01129> (8799)
the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
{began...: Heb. built}
And the house
<01004>
which king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>
built
<01129> (8804)
for the LORD
<03068>_,
the length
<0753>
thereof [was] threescore
<08346>
cubits
<0520>_,
and the breadth
<07341>
thereof twenty
<06242>
[cubits], and the height
<06967>
thereof thirty
<07970>
cubits
<0520>_.
And the porch
<0197>
before
<06440>
the temple
<01964>
of the house
<01004>_,
twenty
<06242>
cubits
<0520>
[was] the length
<0753>
thereof, according to the breadth
<07341>
of the house
<01004>_;
[and] ten
<06235>
cubits
<0520>
[was] the breadth
<07341>
thereof before the house
<01004>_.
And for the house
<01004>
he made
<06213> (8799)
windows
<02474>
of narrow
<0331> (8801)
lights
<08261>_.
{of...: or, broad within, and narrow without: or, skewed and closed}
And against the wall
<07023>
of the house
<01004>
he built
<01129> (8799)
chambers
<03326> (8675) <03326>
round about
<05439>_,
[against] the walls
<07023>
of the house
<01004>
round about
<05439>_,
[both] of the temple
<01964>
and of the oracle
<01687>_:
and he made
<06213> (8799)
chambers
<06763>
round about
<05439>_:
{against the wall: or, upon, or, joining to the wall} {built chambers: Heb. built floors} {made chambers: Heb. made ribs}
The nethermost
<08481>
chamber
<03326> (8675) <03326>
[was] five
<02568>
cubits
<0520>
broad
<07341>_,
and the middle
<08484>
[was] six
<08337>
cubits
<0520>
broad
<07341>_,
and the third
<07992>
[was] seven
<07651>
cubits
<0520>
broad
<07341>_:
for without [in the wall] of
<02351>
the house
<01004>
he made
<05414> (8804)
narrowed rests
<04052>
round about
<05439>_,
that [the beams] should not be fastened
<0270> (8800)
in the walls
<07023>
of the house
<01004>_.
{narrowed...: Heb. narrowings, or, rebatements}
And the house
<01004>_,
when it was in building
<01129> (8736)_,
was built
<01129> (8738)
of stone
<068>
made ready
<08003>
before it was brought
<04551>
thither: so that there was neither hammer
<04717>
nor axe
<01631>
[nor] any tool
<03627>
of iron
<01270>
heard
<08085> (8738)
in the house
<01004>_,
while it was in building
<01129> (8736)_.
The door
<06607>
for the middle
<08484>
chamber
<06763>
[was] in the right
<03233>
side
<03802>
of the house
<01004>_:
and they went up
<05927> (8799)
with winding stairs
<03883>
into the middle
<08484>
[chamber], and out of the middle
<08484>
into the third
<07992>_.
{side: Heb. shoulder}
So he built
<01129> (8799)
the house
<01004>_,
and finished
<03615> (8762)
it; and covered
<05603> (8799)
the house
<01004>
with beams
<01356>
and boards
<07713>
of cedar
<0730>_.
{with...: or, the vaultbeams and the panellings with cedar}
And [then] he built
<01129> (8799)
chambers
<03326> (8675) <03326>
against all the house
<01004>_,
five
<02568>
cubits
<0520>
high
<06967>_:
and they rested
<0270> (8799)
on the house
<01004>
[with] timber
<06086>
of cedar
<0730>_.
And the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
came to Solomon
<08010>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
[Concerning] this house
<01004>
which thou art in building
<01129> (8802)_,
if thou wilt walk
<03212> (8799)
in my statutes
<02708>_,
and execute
<06213> (8799)
my judgments
<04941>_,
and keep
<08104> (8804)
all my commandments
<04687>
to walk
<03212> (8800)
in them; then will I perform
<06965> (8689)
my word
<01697>
with thee, which I spake
<01696> (8765)
unto David
<01732>
thy father
<01>_:
And I will dwell
<07931> (8804)
among
<08432>
the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and will not forsake
<05800> (8799)
my people
<05971>
Israel
<03478>_.
So Solomon
<08010>
built
<01129> (8799)
the house
<01004>_,
and finished
<03615> (8762)
it.
And he built
<01129> (8799)
the walls
<07023>
of the house
<01004>
within
<01004>
with boards
<06763>
of cedar
<0730>_,
both the floor
<07172>
of the house
<01004>_,
and the walls
<07023>
of the cieling
<05604>_:
[and] he covered
<06823> (8765)
[them] on the inside
<01004>
with wood
<06086>_,
and covered
<06823> (8762)
the floor
<07172>
of the house
<01004>
with planks
<06763>
of fir
<01265>_.
{both...: or, from the floor of the house unto the walls, etc}
And he built
<01129> (8799)
twenty
<06242>
cubits
<0520>
on the sides
<03411>
of the house
<01004>_,
both
<04480>
the floor
<07172>
and the walls
<07023>
with boards
<06763>
of cedar
<0730>_:
he even built
<01129> (8799)
[them] for it within
<01004>_,
[even] for the oracle
<01687>_,
[even] for the most
<06944>
holy
<06944>
[place].
And the house
<01004>_,
that [is], the temple
<01964>
before
<03942>
it, was forty
<0705>
cubits
<0520>
[long].
And the cedar
<0730>
of the house
<01004>
within
<06441>
[was] carved
<04734>
with knops
<06497>
and open
<06362> (8803)
flowers
<06731>_:
all [was] cedar
<0730>_;
there was no stone
<068>
seen
<07200> (8738)_.
{knops: or, gourds} {open: Heb. openings of}
And the oracle
<01687>
he prepared
<03559> (8689)
in
<08432>
the house
<01004>
within
<06441>_,
to set
<05414> (8800)
there the ark
<0727>
of the covenant
<01285>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
And the oracle
<01687>
in the forepart
<06440>
[was] twenty
<06242>
cubits
<0520>
in length
<0753>_,
and twenty
<06242>
cubits
<0520>
in breadth
<07341>_,
and twenty
<06242>
cubits
<0520>
in the height
<06967>
thereof: and he overlaid
<06823> (8762)
it with pure
<05462> (8803)
gold
<02091>_;
and [so] covered
<06823> (8762)
the altar
<04196>
[which was of] cedar
<0730>_.
{pure: Heb. shut up}
So Solomon
<08010>
overlaid
<06823> (8762)
the house
<01004>
within
<06441>
with pure
<05462> (8803)
gold
<02091>_:
and he made a partition
<05674> (8762)
by the chains
<07572> (8675) <07572>
of gold
<02091>
before
<06440>
the oracle
<01687>_;
and he overlaid
<06823> (8762)
it with gold
<02091>_.
And the whole house
<01004>
he overlaid
<06823> (8765)
with gold
<02091>_,
until he had finished
<08552> (8800)
all the house
<01004>_:
also the whole altar
<04196>
that [was] by the oracle
<01687>
he overlaid
<06823> (8765)
with gold
<02091>_.
And within the oracle
<01687>
he made
<06213> (8799)
two
<08147>
cherubims
<03742>
[of] olive
<08081>
tree
<06086>_,
[each] ten
<06235>
cubits
<0520>
high
<06967>_.
{olive: or, oily: Heb. trees of oil}
And five
<02568>
cubits
<0520>
[was] the one
<0259>
wing
<03671>
of the cherub
<03742>_,
and five
<02568>
cubits
<0520>
the other
<08145>
wing
<03671>
of the cherub
<03742>_:
from the uttermost part
<07098>
of the one wing
<03671>
unto the uttermost part
<07098>
of the other
<03671>
[were] ten
<06235>
cubits
<0520>_.
And the other
<08145>
cherub
<03742>
[was] ten
<06235>
cubits
<0520>_:
both
<08147>
the cherubims
<03742>
[were] of one
<0259>
measure
<04060>
and one
<0259>
size
<07095>_.
The height
<06967>
of the one
<0259>
cherub
<03742>
[was] ten
<06235>
cubits
<0520>_,
and so [was it] of the other
<08145>
cherub
<03742>_.
And he set
<05414> (8799)
the cherubims
<03742>
within
<08432>
the inner
<06442>
house
<01004>_:
and they stretched forth
<06566> (8799)
the wings
<03671>
of the cherubims
<03742>_,
so that the wing
<03671>
of the one
<0259>
touched
<05060> (8799)
the [one] wall
<07023>_,
and the wing
<03671>
of the other
<08145>
cherub
<03742>
touched
<05060> (8802)
the other
<08145>
wall
<07023>_;
and their wings
<03671>
touched
<05060> (8802)
one
<03671>
another
<03671>
in the midst
<08432>
of the house
<01004>_.
{they...: or, the cherubims stretched forth their wings}
And he overlaid
<06823> (8762)
the cherubims
<03742>
with gold
<02091>_.
And he carved
<07049> (8804)
all the walls
<07023>
of the house
<01004>
round about
<04524>
with carved
<06603>
figures
<04734>
of cherubims
<03742>
and palm trees
<08561>
and open
<06362> (8803)
flowers
<06731>_,
within
<06441>
and without
<02435>_.
{open flowers: Heb. openings of flowers}
And the floor
<07172>
of the house
<01004>
he overlaid
<06823> (8765)
with gold
<02091>_,
within
<06441>
and without
<02435>_.
And for the entering
<06607>
of the oracle
<01687>
he made
<06213> (8804)
doors
<01817>
[of] olive
<08081>
tree
<06086>_:
the lintel
<0352>
[and] side posts
<04201>
[were] a fifth part
<02549>
[of the wall]. {a fifth...: or, fivesquare}
The two
<08147>
doors
<01817>
also [were of] olive
<08081>
tree
<06086>_;
and he carved
<07049> (8804)
upon them carvings
<04734>
of cherubims
<03742>
and palm trees
<08561>
and open
<06362> (8803)
flowers
<06731>_,
and overlaid
<06823> (8765)
[them] with gold
<02091>_,
and spread
<07286> (8686)
gold
<02091>
upon the cherubims
<03742>_,
and upon the palm trees
<08561>_.
{two...: or, leaves of the doors} {open flowers: Heb. openings of flowers}
So also made
<06213> (8804)
he for the door
<06607>
of the temple
<01964>
posts
<04201>
[of] olive
<08081>
tree
<06086>_,
a fourth part
<07243>
[of the wall]. {a fourth...: or, foursquare}
And the two
<08147>
doors
<01817>
[were of] fir
<01265>
tree
<06086>_:
the two
<08147>
leaves
<06763>
of the one
<0259>
door
<01817>
[were] folding
<01550>_,
and the two
<08147>
leaves
<07050>
of the other
<08145>
door
<01817>
[were] folding
<01550>_.
And he carved
<07049> (8804)
[thereon] cherubims
<03742>
and palm trees
<08561>
and open
<06362> (8803)
flowers
<06731>_:
and covered
<06823> (8765)
[them] with gold
<02091>
fitted
<03474> (8794)
upon the carved work
<02707> (8794)_.
And he built
<01129> (8799)
the inner
<06442>
court
<02691>
with three
<07969>
rows
<02905>
of hewed stone
<01496>_,
and a row
<02905>
of cedar
<0730>
beams
<03773>_.
In the fourth
<07243>
year
<08141>
was the foundation
<03245> (0)
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>
laid
<03245> (8795)_,
in the month
<03391>
Zif
<02099>_:
And in the eleventh
<0259> <06240>
year
<08141>_,
in the month
<03391>
Bul
<0945>_,
which [is] the eighth
<08066>
month
<02320>_,
was the house
<01004>
finished
<03615> (8804)
throughout all the parts
<01697>
thereof, and according to all the fashion
<04941>
of it. So was he seven
<07651>
years
<08141>
in building
<01129> (8799)
it. {through out...: or, with all the parts thereof, and with all the ordinances thereof}
