Then Solomon
<08010>
began
<02490> (8686)
to build
<01129> (8800)
the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>
at Jerusalem
<03389>
in mount
<02022>
Moriah
<04179>_,
where [the LORD] appeared
<07200> (8738)
unto David
<01732>
his father
<01>_,
in the place
<04725>
that David
<01732>
had prepared
<03559> (8689)
in the threshingfloor
<01637>
of Ornan
<0771>
the Jebusite
<02983>_.
{where...: or, which was seen of David his father} {Ornan: also called, Araunah}
And he began
<02490> (8686)
to build
<01129> (8800)
in the second
<08145>
[day] of the second
<08145>
month
<02320>_,
in the fourth
<0702>
year
<08141>
of his reign
<04438>_.
Now these [are the things wherein] Solomon
<08010>
was instructed
<03245> (8717)
for the building
<01129> (8800)
of the house
<01004>
of God
<0430>_.
The length
<0753>
by cubits
<0520>
after the first
<07223>
measure
<04060>
[was] threescore
<08346>
cubits
<0520>_,
and the breadth
<07341>
twenty
<06242>
cubits
<0520>_.
{instructed: Heb. founded}
And the porch
<0197>
that [was] in the front
<06440>
[of the house], the length
<0753>
[of it was] according to the breadth
<07341>
of the house
<01004>_,
twenty
<06242>
cubits
<0520>_,
and the height
<01363>
[was] an hundred
<03967>
and twenty
<06242>_:
and he overlaid
<06823> (8762)
it within
<06441>
with pure
<02889>
gold
<02091>_.
And the greater
<01419>
house
<01004>
he cieled
<02645> (8765)
with fir
<01265>
tree
<06086>_,
which he overlaid
<02645> (8762)
with fine
<02896>
gold
<02091>_,
and set
<05927> (8686)
thereon palm trees
<08561>
and chains
<08333>_.
And he garnished
<06823> (8762)
the house
<01004>
with precious
<03368>
stones
<068>
for beauty
<08597>_:
and the gold
<02091>
[was] gold
<02091>
of Parvaim
<06516>_.
{garnished: Heb. covered}
He overlaid
<02645> (8762)
also the house
<01004>_,
the beams
<06982>_,
the posts
<05592>_,
and the walls
<07023>
thereof, and the doors
<01817>
thereof, with gold
<02091>_;
and graved
<06605> (8765)
cherubims
<03742>
on the walls
<07023>_.
And he made
<06213> (8799)
the most
<06944>
holy
<06944>
house
<01004>_,
the length
<0753>
whereof [was] according to
<06440>
the breadth
<07341>
of the house
<01004>_,
twenty
<06242>
cubits
<0520>_,
and the breadth
<07341>
thereof twenty
<06242>
cubits
<0520>_:
and he overlaid
<02645> (8762)
it with fine
<02896>
gold
<02091>_,
[amounting] to six
<08337>
hundred
<03967>
talents
<03603>_.
And the weight
<04948>
of the nails
<04548>
[was] fifty
<02572>
shekels
<08255>
of gold
<02091>_.
And he overlaid
<02645> (8765)
the upper chambers
<05944>
with gold
<02091>_.
And in the most
<06944>
holy
<06944>
house
<01004>
he made
<06213> (8799)
two
<08147>
cherubims
<03742>
of image
<06816>
work
<04639>_,
and overlaid
<06823> (8762)
them with gold
<02091>_.
{image...: or, (as some think) of moveable work}
And the wings
<03671>
of the cherubims
<03742>
[were] twenty
<06242>
cubits
<0520>
long
<0753>_:
one
<0259>
wing
<03671>
[of the one cherub was] five
<02568>
cubits
<0520>_,
reaching
<05060> (8688)
to the wall
<07023>
of the house
<01004>_:
and the other
<0312>
wing
<03671>
[was likewise] five
<02568>
cubits
<0520>_,
reaching
<05060> (8688)
to the wing
<03671>
of the other
<0312>
cherub
<03742>_.
And [one] wing
<03671>
of the other
<0259>
cherub
<03742>
[was] five
<02568>
cubits
<0520>_,
reaching
<05060> (8688)
to the wall
<07023>
of the house
<01004>_:
and the other
<0312>
wing
<03671>
[was] five
<02568>
cubits
<0520>
[also], joining
<01695>
to the wing
<03671>
of the other
<0312>
cherub
<03742>_.
The wings
<03671>
of these cherubims
<03742>
spread themselves forth
<06566> (8802)
twenty
<06242>
cubits
<0520>_:
and they stood
<05975> (8802)
on their feet
<07272>_,
and their faces
<06440>
[were] inward
<01004>_.
{inward: or, toward the house}
And he made
<06213> (8799)
the vail
<06532>
[of] blue
<08504>_,
and purple
<0713>_,
and crimson
<03758>_,
and fine linen
<0948>_,
and wrought
<05927> (8686)
cherubims
<03742>
thereon. {wrought: Heb. caused to ascend}
Also he made
<06213> (8799)
before
<06440>
the house
<01004>
two
<08147>
pillars
<05982>
of thirty
<07970>
and five
<02568>
cubits
<0520>
high
<0753>_,
and the chapiter
<06858>
that [was] on the top
<07218>
of each of them [was] five
<02568>
cubits
<0520>_.
{high: Heb. long}
And he made
<06213> (8799)
chains
<08333>_,
[as] in the oracle
<01687>_,
and put
<05414> (8799)
[them] on the heads
<07218>
of the pillars
<05982>_;
and made
<06213> (8799)
an hundred
<03967>
pomegranates
<07416>_,
and put
<05414> (8799)
[them] on the chains
<08333>_.
And he reared up
<06965> (8686)
the pillars
<05982>
before
<06440>
the temple
<01964>_,
one
<0259>
on the right hand
<03225>_,
and the other
<0259>
on the left
<08040>_;
and called
<07121> (8799)
the name
<08034>
of that on the right hand
<03233> (8675) <03227>
Jachin
<03199>_,
and the name
<08034>
of that on the left
<08042>
Boaz
<01162>_.
{Jachin: that is, He shall establish} {Boaz: that is, In it is strength}
Moreover he made
<06213> (8799)
an altar
<04196>
of brass
<05178>_,
twenty
<06242>
cubits
<0520>
the length
<0753>
thereof, and twenty
<06242>
cubits
<0520>
the breadth
<07341>
thereof, and ten
<06235>
cubits
<0520>
the height
<06967>
thereof.
Also he made
<06213> (8799)
a molten
<03332> (8716)
sea
<03220>
of ten
<06235>
cubits
<0520>
from brim
<08193>
to brim
<08193>_,
round
<05696>
in compass
<05439>_,
and five
<02568>
cubits
<0520>
the height
<06967>
thereof; and a line
<06957>
of thirty
<07970>
cubits
<0520>
did compass
<05437> (8799)
it round about
<05439>_.
{from...: Heb. from his brim to his brim}
And under it [was] the similitude
<01823>
of oxen
<01241>_,
which did compass
<05437> (8802)
it round about
<05439>_:
ten
<06235>
in a cubit
<0520>_,
compassing
<05362> (8688)
the sea
<03220>
round about
<05439>_.
Two
<08147>
rows
<02905>
of oxen
<01241>
[were] cast
<03332> (8803)_,
when it was cast
<04166>_.
It stood
<05975> (8802)
upon twelve
<08147> <06240>
oxen
<01241>_,
three
<07969>
looking
<06437> (8802)
toward the north
<06828>_,
and three
<07969>
looking
<06437> (8802)

<06437> (8802)
toward the south
<05045>_,
and three
<07969>
looking
<06437> (8802)
toward the east
<04217>_:
and the sea
<03220>
[was set] above
<04605>
upon them, and all their hinder parts
<0268>
[were] inward
<01004>_.
And the thickness
<05672>
of it [was] an handbreadth
<02947>_,
and the brim
<08193>
of it like the work
<04639>
of the brim
<08193>
of a cup
<03563>_,
with flowers
<06525>
of lilies
<07799>_;
[and] it received
<02388> (8688)
and held
<03557> (8686)
three
<07969>
thousand
<0505>
baths
<01324>_.
{with flowers...: or, like a lilyflower}
He made
<06213> (8799)
also ten
<06235>
lavers
<03595>_,
and put
<05414> (8799)
five
<02568>
on the right hand
<03225>_,
and five
<02568>
on the left
<08040>_,
to wash
<07364> (8800)
in them: such things as they offered
<04639>
for the burnt offering
<05930>
they washed
<01740> (8686)
in them; but the sea
<03220>
[was] for the priests
<03548>
to wash in
<07364> (8800)_.
{such...: Heb. the work of burnt offering}
And he made
<06213> (8799)
ten
<06235>
candlesticks
<04501>
of gold
<02091>
according to their form
<04941>_,
and set
<05414> (8799)
[them] in the temple
<01964>_,
five
<02568>
on the right hand
<03225>_,
and five
<02568>
on the left
<08040>_.
He made
<06213> (8799)
also ten
<06235>
tables
<07979>_,
and placed
<03240> (8686)
[them] in the temple
<01964>_,
five
<02568>
on the right side
<03225>_,

<08040>_.
And he made
<06213> (8799)
an hundred
<03967>

<02091>_.
{basons: or, bowls}
Furthermore he made
<06213> (8799)
the court
<02691>
of the priests
<03548>_,
and the great
<01419>
court
<05835>_,
and doors
<01817>
for the court
<05835>_,
and overlaid
<06823> (8765)
the doors
<01817>
of them with brass
<05178>_.
And he set
<05414> (8804)
the sea
<03220>
on the right
<03233>
side
<03802>
of the east end
<06924>_,
over against
<04136>
the south
<05045>_.
And Huram
<02361>
made
<06213> (8799)
the pots
<05518>_,
and the shovels
<03257>_,
and the basons
<04219>_.
And Huram
<02361> (8676) <02438>
finished
<03615> (8762) <06213> (8800)
the work
<04399>
that he was to make
<06213> (8804)
for king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>
for the house
<01004>
of God
<0430>_;
{basons: or, bowls} {finished: Heb. finished to make}
[To wit], the two
<08147>
pillars
<05982>_,
and the pommels
<01543>_,
and the chapiters
<03805>
[which were] on the top
<07218>
of the two pillars
<05982>_,
and the two
<08147>
wreaths
<07639>
to cover
<03680> (8763)
the two
<08147>
pommels
<01543>
of the chapiters
<03805>
which [were] on the top
<07218>
of the pillars
<05982>_;
And four
<0702>
hundred
<03967>
pomegranates
<07416>
on the two
<08147>
wreaths
<07639>_;
two
<08147>
rows
<02905>
of pomegranates
<07416>
on each
<0259>
wreath
<07639>_,
to cover
<03680> (8763)
the two
<08147>
pommels
<01543>
of the chapiters
<03805>
which [were] upon
<06440>
the pillars
<05982>_.
{upon: Heb. upon the face of}
He made
<06213> (8804)
also bases
<04350>_,
and lavers
<03595>

<01241>
under it.
The pots
<05518>
also, and the shovels
<03257>_,
and the fleshhooks
<04207>_,
and all their instruments
<03627>_,
did Huram
<02361>
his father
<01>
make
<06213> (8804)
to king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>

of the LORD
<03068>
of bright
<04838> (8803)
brass
<05178>_.
{bright: Heb. made bright, or, scoured}
In the plain
<03603>
of Jordan
<03383>
did the king
<04428>
cast
<03332> (8804)
them, in the clay
<05645>
ground
<0127>
between Succoth
<05523>
and Zeredathah
<06868>_.
{clay...: Heb. thicknesses of the ground}
Thus Solomon
<08010>
made
<06213> (8799)
all these vessels
<03627>
in great
<03966>
abundance
<07230>_:
for the weight
<04948>
of the brass
<05178>
could not be found out
<02713> (8738)_.
And Solomon
<08010>
made
<06213> (8799)
all the vessels
<03627>
that [were for] the house
<01004>
of God
<0430>_,
the golden
<02091>
altar
<04196>
also, and the tables
<07979>
whereon the shewbread
<03899> <06440>
[was set];
Moreover the candlesticks
<04501>
with their lamps
<05216>_,
that they should burn

<01817>
thereof for the most

holy
<06944>
[place], and the doors
<01817>
of the house
<01004>
of the temple
<01964>_,
[were of] gold
<02091>_.
{basons: or, bowls}
Thus all the work
<04399>
that Solomon
<08010>
made
<06213> (8804)
for the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>
was finished
<07999> (8799)_:
and Solomon
<08010>
brought
<0935> (8686)
in [all] the things
<06944> (0)
that David
<01732>
his father
<01>
had dedicated
<06944>_;
and the silver
<03701>_,
and the gold
<02091>_,
and all the instruments
<03627>_,
put
<05414> (8804)
he among the treasures
<0214>
of the house
<01004>
of God
<0430>_.
