the thresholds, the beveled windows, and the balconies all around with their three levels opposite the threshold-were overlaid with wood on all sides.a [They were paneled] from the ground to the windows (but the windows were covered),
reaching to the top of the entrance, and as far as the inner temple and on the outside. On every wall all around, on the inside and outside, was a pattern
carved with cherubim and palm trees.b There was a palm tree between each pair of cherubim. Each cherub had two faces:
a human face turned toward the palm tree on one side, and a lion's face turned toward it on the other. They were carved throughout the temple on all sides.
Cherubim and palm trees were carved from the ground to the top of the entrance and on the wall of the great hall.
The doorposts of the great hall were square,c and the front of the sanctuary had the same appearance.
The altar wasd made of wood, five and a quarter feete high and three and a half feetf long.g It had corners, and its lengthh and sides were of wood. The man told me, "This is the table that stands before the Lord."i23
The great hall and the sanctuary each had a double door,
and each of the doors had two swinging panels.j There were two panels for one door and two for the other.
Cherubim and palm trees were carved on the doors of the great hall like those carved on the walls.k There was a wooden canopylmoutside, in front of the portico.
There were beveled windows and palm trees on both sides, on the sidewalls of the portico, the side rooms of the temple, and the canopies.n
