1 Kings 5

1 And Hiram king of Tyre sent his servants unto Solomon; for he had heard that they had anointed him king in the room of his father: for Hiram was ever a lover of David. View Tool
2 And Solomon sent to Hiram, saying, View Tool
3 Thou knowest how that David my father could not build an house unto the name of the Lord his God for the wars which were about him on every side, until the Lord put them under the soles of his feet. View Tool
4 But now the Lord my God hath given me rest on every side, so that there is neither adversary nor evil occurrent. 2 I View Tool
5 And, behold, I purpose to build an house unto the name of the Lord my God, as the Lord spake unto David my father, saying, Thy son, whom I will set upon thy throne in thy room, he shall build an house unto my name. 2 I View Tool
6 Now therefore command thou that they hew me cedar trees out of Lebanon; and my servants shall be with thy servants: and unto thee will I give hire for thy servants according to all that thou shalt appoint: for thou knowest that there is not among us any that can skill to hew timber like unto the Sidonians. View Tool
7 And it came to pass, when Hiram heard the words of Solomon, that he rejoiced greatly, and said, Blessed be the Lord this day, which hath given unto David a wise son over this great people. 2 I View Tool
8 And Hiram sent to Solomon, saying, I have considered the things which thou sentest to me for: and I will do all thy desire concerning timber of cedar, and concerning timber of fir. View Tool
9 My servants shall bring them down from Lebanon unto the sea: and I will convey them by sea in floats unto the place that thou shalt appoint me, and will cause them to be discharged there, and thou shalt receive them: and thou shalt accomplish my desire, in giving food for my household. View Tool
10 So Hiram gave Solomon cedar trees and fir trees according to all his desire. View Tool
11 And Solomon gave Hiram twenty thousand measures of wheat for food to his household, and twenty measures of pure oil: thus gave Solomon to Hiram year by year. View Tool
12 And the Lord gave Solomon wisdom, as he promised him: and there was peace between Hiram and Solomon; and they two made a league together. 2 I View Tool
13 And king Solomon raised a levy out of all Israel; and the levy was thirty thousand men. View Tool
14 And he sent them to Lebanon, ten thousand a month by courses: a month they were in Lebanon, and two months at home: and Adoniram was over the levy. View Tool
15 And Solomon had threescore and ten thousand that bare burdens, and fourscore thousand hewers in the mountains; View Tool
16 Beside the chief of Solomon's officers which were over the work, three thousand and three hundred, which ruled over the people that wrought in the work. View Tool
17 And the king commanded, and they brought great stones, costly stones, and hewed stones, to lay the foundation of the house. View Tool
18 And Solomon's builders and Hiram's builders did hew them, and the stonesquarers: so they prepared timber and stones to build the house. View Tool

 

1 Kings 6

1 And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month Zif, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of the Lord. View Tool
2 And the house which king Solomon built for the Lord, the length thereof was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof twenty cubits, and the height thereof thirty cubits. View Tool
3 And the porch before the temple of the house, twenty cubits was the length thereof, according to the breadth of the house; and ten cubits was the breadth thereof before the house. View Tool
4 And for the house he made windows of narrow lights. View Tool
5 And against the wall of the house he built chambers round about, against the walls of the house round about, both of the temple and of the oracle: and he made chambers round about: View Tool
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. View Tool
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. View Tool
8 The door for the middle chamber was in the right side of the house: and they went up with winding stairs into the middle chamber, and out of the middle into the third. View Tool
9 So he built the house, and finished it; and covered the house with beams and boards of cedar. View Tool
10 And then he built chambers against all the house, five cubits high: and they rested on the house with timber of cedar. View Tool
11 And the word of the Lord came to Solomon, saying, 2 I View Tool
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: 2 I View Tool
13 And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will not forsake my people Israel. View Tool
14 So Solomon built the house, and finished it. View Tool
15 And he built the walls of the house within with boards of cedar, both the floor of the house, and the walls of the ceiling: and he covered them on the inside with wood, and covered the floor of the house with planks of fir. View Tool
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. View Tool
17 And the house, that is, the temple before it, was forty cubits long. View Tool
18 And the cedar of the house within was carved with knops and open flowers: all was cedar; there was no stone seen. View Tool
19 And the oracle he prepared in the house within, to set there the ark of the covenant of the Lord. View Tool
20 And the oracle in the forepart was twenty cubits in length, and twenty cubits in breadth, and twenty cubits in the height thereof: and he overlaid it with pure gold; and so covered the altar which was of cedar. View Tool
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. View Tool
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. View Tool
23 And within the oracle he made two cherubims of olive tree, each ten cubits high. View Tool
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. View Tool
25 And the other cherub was ten cubits: both the cherubims were of one measure and one size. View Tool
26 The height of the one cherub was ten cubits, and so was it of the other cherub. View Tool
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. View Tool
28 And he overlaid the cherubims with gold. View Tool
29 And he carved all the walls of the house round about with carved figures of cherubims and palm trees and open flowers, within and without. View Tool
30 And the floors of the house he overlaid with gold, within and without. View Tool
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. View Tool
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. View Tool
33 So also made he for the door of the temple posts of olive tree, a fourth part of the wall. View Tool
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. View Tool
35 And he carved thereon cherubims and palm trees and open flowers: and covered them with gold fitted upon the carved work. View Tool
36 And he built the inner court with three rows of hewed stone, and a row of cedar beams. View Tool
37 In the fourth year was the foundation of the house of the Lord laid, in the month Zif: View Tool
38 And in the eleventh year, in the month Bul, which is the eighth month, was the house finished throughout all the parts thereof, and according to all the fashion of it. So was he seven years in building it. View Tool

 

1 Kings 7

1 But Solomon was building his own house thirteen years, and he finished all his house. View Tool
2 He built also the house of the forest of Lebanon; the length thereof was an hundred cubits, and the breadth thereof fifty cubits, and the height thereof thirty cubits, upon four rows of cedar pillars, with cedar beams upon the pillars. View Tool
3 And it was covered with cedar above upon the beams, that lay on forty five pillars, fifteen in a row. View Tool
4 And there were windows in three rows, and light was against light in three ranks. View Tool
5 And all the doors and posts were square, with the windows: and light was against light in three ranks. View Tool
6 And he made a porch of pillars; the length thereof was fifty cubits, and the breadth thereof thirty cubits: and the porch was before them: and the other pillars and the thick beam were before them. View Tool
7 Then he made a porch for the throne where he might judge, even the porch of judgment: and it was covered with cedar from one side of the floor to the other. View Tool
8 And his house where he dwelt had another court within the porch, which was of the like work. Solomon made also an house for Pharaoh's daughter, whom he had taken to wife, like unto this porch. View Tool
9 All these were of costly stones, according to the measures of hewed stones, sawed with saws, within and without, even from the foundation unto the coping, and so on the outside toward the great court. View Tool
10 And the foundation was of costly stones, even great stones, stones of ten cubits, and stones of eight cubits. View Tool
11 And above were costly stones, after the measures of hewed stones, and cedars. View Tool
12 And the great court round about was with three rows of hewed stones, and a row of cedar beams, both for the inner court of the house of the Lord, and for the porch of the house. View Tool
13 And king Solomon sent and fetched Hiram out of Tyre. View Tool
14 He was a widow's son of the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man of Tyre, a worker in brass: and he was filled with wisdom, and understanding, and cunning to work all works in brass. And he came to king Solomon, and wrought all his work. View Tool
15 For he cast two pillars of brass, of eighteen cubits high apiece: and a line of twelve cubits did compass either of them about. View Tool
16 And he made two chapiters of molten brass, to set upon the tops of the pillars: the height of the one chapiter was five cubits, and the height of the other chapiter was five cubits: View Tool
17 And nets of checker work, and wreaths of chain work, for the chapiters which were upon the top of the pillars; seven for the one chapiter, and seven for the other chapiter. View Tool
18 And he made the pillars, and two rows round about upon the one network, to cover the chapiters that were upon the top, with pomegranates: and so did he for the other chapiter. View Tool
19 And the chapiters that were upon the top of the pillars were of lily work in the porch, four cubits. View Tool
20 And the chapiters upon the two pillars had pomegranates also above, over against the belly which was by the network: and the pomegranates were two hundred in rows round about upon the other chapiter. View Tool
21 And he set up the pillars in the porch of the temple: and he set up the right pillar, and called the name thereof Jachin: and he set up the left pillar, and called the name thereof Boaz. View Tool
22 And upon the top of the pillars was lily work: so was the work of the pillars finished. View Tool
23 And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about. View Tool
24 And under the brim of it round about there were knops compassing it, ten in a cubit, compassing the sea round about: the knops were cast in two rows, when it was cast. View Tool
25 It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking toward the north, and three looking toward the west, and three looking toward the south, and three looking toward the east: and the sea was set above upon them, and all their hinder parts were inward. View Tool
26 And it was an hand breadth thick, and the brim thereof was wrought like the brim of a cup, with flowers of lilies: it contained two thousand baths. View Tool
27 And he made ten bases of brass; four cubits was the length of one base, and four cubits the breadth thereof, and three cubits the height of it. View Tool
28 And the work of the bases was on this manner: they had borders, and the borders were between the ledges: View Tool
29 And on the borders that were between the ledges were lions, oxen, and cherubims: and upon the ledges there was a base above: and beneath the lions and oxen were certain additions made of thin work. View Tool
30 And every base had four brasen wheels, and plates of brass: and the four corners thereof had undersetters: under the laver were undersetters molten, at the side of every addition. View Tool
31 And the mouth of it within the chapiter and above was a cubit: but the mouth thereof was round after the work of the base, a cubit and an half: and also upon the mouth of it were gravings with their borders, foursquare, not round. View Tool
32 And under the borders were four wheels; and the axletrees of the wheels were joined to the base: and the height of a wheel was a cubit and half a cubit. View Tool
33 And the work of the wheels was like the work of a chariot wheel: their axletrees, and their naves, and their felloes, and their spokes, were all molten. View Tool
34 And there were four undersetters to the four corners of one base: and the undersetters were of the very base itself. View Tool
35 And in the top of the base was there a round compass of half a cubit high: and on the top of the base the ledges thereof and the borders thereof were of the same. View Tool
36 For on the plates of the ledges thereof, and on the borders thereof, he graved cherubims, lions, and palm trees, according to the proportion of every one, and additions round about. View Tool
37 After this manner he made the ten bases: all of them had one casting, one measure, and one size. View Tool
38 Then made he ten lavers of brass: one laver contained forty baths: and every laver was four cubits: and upon every one of the ten bases one laver. View Tool
39 And he put five bases on the right side of the house, and five on the left side of the house: and he set the sea on the right side of the house eastward over against the south. View Tool
40 And Hiram made the lavers, and the shovels, and the basons. So Hiram made an end of doing all the work that he made king Solomon for the house of the Lord: View Tool
41 The two pillars, and the two bowls of the chapiters that were on the top of the two pillars; and the two networks, to cover the two bowls of the chapiters which were upon the top of the pillars; View Tool
42 And four hundred pomegranates for the two networks, even two rows of pomegranates for one network, to cover the two bowls of the chapiters that were upon the pillars; View Tool
43 And the ten bases, and ten lavers on the bases; View Tool
44 And one sea, and twelve oxen under the sea; View Tool
45 And the pots, and the shovels, and the basons: and all these vessels, which Hiram made to king Solomon for the house of the Lord, were of bright brass. View Tool
46 In the plain of Jordan did the king cast them, in the clay ground between Succoth and Zarthan. View Tool
47 And Solomon left all the vessels unweighed, because they were exceeding many: neither was the weight of the brass found out. View Tool
48 And Solomon made all the vessels that pertained unto the house of the Lord: the altar of gold, and the table of gold, whereupon the shewbread was, View Tool
49 And the candlesticks of pure gold, five on the right side, and five on the left, before the oracle, with the flowers, and the lamps, and the tongs of gold, View Tool
50 And the bowls, and the snuffers, and the basons, and the spoons, and the censers of pure gold; and the hinges of gold, both for the doors of the inner house, the most holy place, and for the doors of the house, to wit, of the temple. View Tool
51 So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the Lord. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the Lord. View Tool
