1 Now aSolomon° was building° his own house° thirteen°° years°, and he finished° all° his house°. 2 aHe built° the house° of the forest° of Lebanon°; its length° was 100° Icubits° and its width° 50° cubits° and its height° 30° cubits°, on four° rows° of cedar° pillars° with cedar° beams° on the pillars°. 3 It was paneled° with cedar° above°° the side° chambers° which° were on the 45°° pillars°, 15°° in each row°. 4 [There were artistic window] frames° in three° rows°, and window° was opposite° window° in three° ranks°. 5 All° the doorways° and doorposts° [had] squared° [artistic] frames°, and window° was opposite°° window° in three° ranks°.
8 ¶ His house° where°° he was to live°, the other° court° inward°° from the hall°, was of the same° workmanship°. aHe also made° a house° like this° hall° for Pharaoh’s° daughter°, bwhom° Solomon° had married°.
9 ¶ All° these° were of costly° stones°, of stone° cut° according to measure°, sawed° with saws°, inside°° and outside°°; even from the foundation° to the coping°, and so on the outside° to the great° court°.
10 ¶ The foundation° was of costly° stones°, [even] large° stones°, stones° of ten° cubits° and stones° of eight° cubits°. 11 And above°° were costly° stones°, stone° cut° according to measure°, and cedar°. 12 So athe great° court° all° around° [had] three° rows° of cut° stone° and a row° of cedar° beams° even as the inner° court° of the house° of the LORD°, and bthe porch° of the house°.
Hiram’s Work in the Temple
13 ¶ Now aKing° Solomon° sent° and brought° Hiram° from Tyre°. 14 aHe was a widow’s° son° from the tribe° of Naphtali°, and his father° was a man° of Tyre°, a worker° in bronze°; and bhe was filled° with wisdom° and understanding° and skill° for doing° any° work° in bronze°. So he came° to King° Solomon° and cperformed° all° his work°.
15 ¶ He fashioned° athe two° pillars° of bronze°; beighteen°° cubits° was the height° of one° pillar°, and a line° of twelve°° cubits° Imeasured° the circumference° of both°. 16 He also made° two° capitals° of molten° bronze° to set° on the tops° of the pillars°; the height° of the one° capital° was five° Icubits° and the height° of the other° capital° was five° cubits°. 17 [There were] nets° of network° and twisted° threads° of chainwork°° for the capitals° which° were on the top° of the pillars°; seven° for the one° capital° and seven° for the other° capital°. 18 So he made° the pillars°, and two° rows° around° on the one° network° to cover° the capitals° which° were on the top° of the pomegranates°; and so° he did° for the other° capital°. 19 The capitals° which° [were] on the top° of the pillars° in the porch° were of lily° design°, four° cubits°. 20 [There were] capitals° on the two° pillars°, even° above°° [and] close°° to the Irounded° projection° which° was beside° the network°; and athe pomegranates° [numbered] two hundred° in rows° around° IIboth° capitals°. 21 aThus he set° up the pillars° at the bporch° of the nave°; and he set° up the right° pillar° and named°° it IJachin°, and he set° up the left° pillar° and named°° it IIBoaz°. 22 On the top° of the pillars° was lily° design°.
