add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

6 The nethermost chamber was five cubits broad, and the middle was six cubits broad, and the third was seven cubits broad: for without in the wall of the house he made narrowed rests round about, that the beams should not be fastened in the walls of the house.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

7 And the house, when it was in building, was built of stone made ready before it was brought thither: so that there was neither hammer nor axe nor any tool of iron heard in the house, while it was in building.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

12 Concerning this house which thou art in building, if thou wilt walk in my statutes, and execute my judgments, and keep all my commandments to walk in them; then will I perform my word with thee, which I spake unto David thy father:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

16 And he built twenty cubits on the sides of the house, both the floor and the walls with boards of cedar: he even built them for it within, even for the oracle, even for the most holy place.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

17 And the house, that is, the temple before it, was forty cubits long.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

21 So Solomon overlaid the house within with pure gold: and he made a partition by the chains of gold before the oracle; and he overlaid it with gold.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

22 And the whole house he overlaid with gold, until he had finished all the house: also the whole altar that was by the oracle he overlaid with gold.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

23 And within the oracle he made two cherubims of olive tree, each ten cubits high.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

24 And five cubits was the one wing of the cherub, and five cubits the other wing of the cherub: from the uttermost part of the one wing unto the uttermost part of the other were ten cubits.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

25 And the other cherub was ten cubits: both the cherubims were of one measure and one size.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

26 The height of the one cherub was ten cubits, and so was it of the other cherub.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

27 And he set the cherubims within the inner house: and they stretched forth the wings of the cherubims, so that the wing of the one touched the one wall, and the wing of the other cherub touched the other wall; and their wings touched one another in the midst of the house.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

31 And for the entering of the oracle he made doors of olive tree: the lintel and side posts were a fifth part of the wall.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

32 The two doors also were of olive tree; and he carved upon them carvings of cherubims and palm trees and open flowers, and overlaid them with gold, and spread gold upon the cherubims, and upon the palm trees.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

33 So also made he for the door of the temple posts of olive tree, a fourth part of the wall.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

34 And the two doors were of fir tree: the two leaves of the one door were folding, and the two leaves of the other door were folding.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

35 And he carved thereon cherubims and palm trees and open flowers: and covered them with gold fitted upon the carved work.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK
