1 Kings 6:36; 1 Kings 7:8-9; 1 Kings 7:12; 1 Kings 8:64
He built the inner court with three rows of cut stone and a row of cedar beams.
His house where he was to live, the other court inward from the hall, was of the same workmanship. He also made a house like this hall for Pharaoh's daughter, whom Solomon had married.
All these were of costly stones, of stone cut according to measure, sawed with saws, inside and outside ; even from the foundation to the coping, and so on the outside to the great court.
So the great court all around had three rows of cut stone and a row of cedar beams even as the inner court of the house of the LORD , and the porch of the house.
On the same day the king consecrated the middle of the court that was before the house of the LORD , because there he offered the burnt offering and the grain offering and the fat of the peace offerings; for the bronze altar that was before the LORD was too small to hold the burnt offering and the grain offering and the fat of the peace offerings.
