View In My Bible
8 The doorway for the alowest side chamber was on the right side of the house; and they would go up by winding stairs to the middle story, and from the middle to the third. 9 So 1he built the house and finished it; and he covered the house with beams and bplanks of cedar. 10 He also built the stories against the whole house, each five ccubits high; and they dwere fastened to the house with timbers of cedar. 11 Now the word of the LORD came to Solomon saying, 12 "Concerning this house which you are building, 2if you will walk in My statutes and execute My ordinances and keep all My commandments by walking in them, then I will carry out My word with you which I spoke to David your father. 13 "3I will dwell among the sons of Israel, and 4will not forsake My people Israel." 14 5So Solomon built the house and finished it. 15 Then he 6built the walls of the house on the inside with boards of cedar; from the floor of the house to the eceiling he overlaid the walls on the inside with wood, and he overlaid the floor of the house with boards of cypress. 16 7He built twenty cubits on the rear part of the house with boards of cedar from the floor to the fceiling; he built them for it on the inside as an inner sanctuary, even as 8the most holy place. 17 The house, that is, the nave in front of the inner sanctuary, was forty gcubits long. 18 There was cedar on the house within, carved in the shape of 9gourds and open flowers; all was cedar, there was no stone seen. 19 Then he prepared an inner sanctuary within the house in order to place there the ark of the covenant of the LORD. 20 hThe inner sanctuary was twenty cubits in length, twenty cubits in width, and twenty cubits in height, and he overlaid it with pure gold. He also overlaid the altar with cedar. 21 So Solomon overlaid the inside of the house with pure gold. And he drew chains of gold across the front of the inner sanctuary, and he overlaid it with gold. 22 He overlaid the whole house with gold, until all the house was finished. Also 10the whole altar which was by the inner sanctuary he overlaid with gold. 23 11Also in the inner sanctuary he made two cherubim of olive wood, each ten cubits high.
