Then David gave his son Solomon the plan for the entrance hall, its buildings, treasuries, upper and inner rooms, and the room for the cover.a12
He provided all of the plans he had in mind: for the courtyards of the LORD's temple, and for all its surrounding rooms where the treasures of God's temple and the dedicated gifts would be stored;
for the divisions of the priests and Levites, for all their responsibilities within the LORD's temple, and for all the equipment used in its service;
for the weight of all the gold equipment used for every kind of service, and the weight of all the silver equipment used for every kind of service;
for the weight of the gold lampstands and their gold lamps—the weight of gold for each lampstand with its lamps—and for the weight of each silver lampstand and its lamps depending on how each would be used;
for the weight of gold for each table with the stacks of bread, and the silver for the silver tables;
for the forks, bowls, and cups of pure gold; for the weight of each gold dish and the weight of each silver dish;
for the weight of the incense altar made of refined gold; and for the construction of the chariot—with the gold winged creatures spreading their wings and covering the chest containing the LORD's covenant.
All of this the LORD made clear to Davidb directly in a document, including the plan for all of the work.
