The doorway for the alowestsidechamber was on the rightside of the house; and they would go up by windingstairs to the middle story, and from the middle to the third.
So 1he built the house and finished it; and he covered the house with beams and bplanks of cedar.
He also built the storiesagainst the wholehouse, each fiveccubitshigh; and they dwere fastened to the house with timbers of cedar.
Now the word of the LORDcame to Solomonsaying,
"Concerning thishousewhich you are building, 2if you will walk in My statutes and execute My ordinances and keepall My commandments by walking in them, then I will carry out My word with you which I spoke to David your father.
"3I will dwellamong the sons of Israel, and 4will not forsake My peopleIsrael."

The house, that is, the nave in front of the inner sanctuary, was fortygcubits long.
There was cedar on the housewithin, carved in the shape of 9gourds and openflowers; all was cedar, there was nostoneseen.
Then he prepared an innersanctuarywithin the house in order to placethere the ark of the covenant of the LORD.
