King Solomon also had gold furnishings made for the Temple: the altar and the tables for the bread offered to God;
the lampstands and the lamps of fine gold that were to burn in front of the Most Holy Place, according to plan;
the flower decorations, the lamps, and the tongs;
the lamp snuffers, the bowls, the dishes for incense, and the pans used for carrying live coals. All these objects were made of pure gold. The outer doors of the Temple and the doors to the Most Holy Place were overlaid with gold.
