1 Kings 6:2 (King James Version)
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.
- the house
- Ezekiel 40:1-41:26
- the length
- According to Bp. Cumberland's estimation of the cubit, its length was 36 yds
- 1 ft. 5/28 inch; its breadth 12 yds. 5/76 inch; and its height, 18 yds
- 8/64 inch. This constituted what is properly called the temple; but, besides this, there were the courts and colonnades, where the people might assemble to perform their devotions, without being exposed to the open air.
