2 Chronicles Chapter 3

1So Solomon began to build the house of the Lord in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, where the Lord had appeared to David his father, who had made preparations on David's site at the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite. 2And he began to build in the second month, on the second day, in the fourth year of his reign. 3So by these things Solomon was moved to initiate building the house of God. The length in cubits by the former system was sixty cubits, and the width was twenty cubits. 4And the porch which was in front had a length corresponding to the width of the house – twenty cubits. And its height was one hundred and twenty cubits. And he overlaid it on the inside with pure gold. 5And he panelled the great house with cypress wood, and he overlaid it with fine gold, and he set palm tree figures and chains on it. 6And he overlaid the house with expensive stone for its splendour. And the gold was Parvaim gold. 7And he overlaid the house – the beams and the thresholds and its walls and its doors with gold, and he engraved cherubim on the walls. 8And he made the room of the holy of holies, whose length was in accordance with the width of the house – twenty cubits – and its width was twenty cubits, and he overlaid it with fine gold, amounting to six hundred talents. 9And the weight of the nails was equal to that of fifty shekels of gold. And he overlaid the upper rooms with gold. 10And in the room of the holy of holies he made two cherubim – carved work – and the gilders overlaid them with gold. 11As for the wings of the cherubim, their length was twenty cubits. One wing had a length of five cubits, touching the wall of the room, while the other wing of five cubits touched the wing of the other cherub. 12And the wing of the other cherub was five cubits in length, touching the wall of the room, and the other wing was five cubits, adjoining the wing of the other cherub. 13The wings of these cherubim extended to twenty cubits, and they stood on their feet with their faces directed inwards. 14And he made the veil of cerulean blue and purple and crimson material, and byssus, and he set up cherubim on it. 15And in front of the house he made two columns, thirty-five cubits in height, and the capital which was on top of them was five cubits high. 16And he made a work in chains in the place of address, and he put it on top of the columns, and he made one hundred pomegranates and put them on the work in chains. 17And he erected the columns alongside the temple, one on the right and one on the left, and he called the right hand one Jachin, and the left hand one Boaz.
