New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
5 The nave he lined with cypress, covered it with fine gold, and made palms and chains on it. 5 He paneled the main hall with pine and covered it with fine gold and decorated it with palm tree and chain designs.
6 He adorned the house with settings of precious stones. The gold was gold from Parvaim. 6 He adorned the temple with precious stones. And the gold he used was gold of Parvaim.
7 So he lined the house with gold—its beams, its thresholds, its walls, and its doors; and he carved cherubim on the walls. 7 He overlaid the ceiling beams, doorframes, walls and doors of the temple with gold, and he carved cherubim on the walls.
8 He made the most holy place; its length, corresponding to the width of the house, was twenty cubits, and its width was twenty cubits; he overlaid it with six hundred talents of fine gold. 8 He built the Most Holy Place, its length corresponding to the width of the temple--twenty cubits long and twenty cubits wide. He overlaid the inside with six hundred talents of fine gold.
9 The weight of the nails was fifty shekels of gold. He overlaid the upper chambers with gold. 9 The gold nails weighed fifty shekels. He also overlaid the upper parts with gold.
10 In the most holy place he made two carved cherubim and overlaid them with gold. 10 In the Most Holy Place he made a pair of sculptured cherubim and overlaid them with gold.
11 The wings of the cherubim together extended twenty cubits: one wing of the one, five cubits long, touched the wall of the house, and its other wing, five cubits long, touched the wing of the other cherub; 11 The total wingspan of the cherubim was twenty cubits. One wing of the first cherub was five cubits long and touched the temple wall, while its other wing, also five cubits long, touched the wing of the other cherub.
12 and of this cherub, one wing, five cubits long, touched the wall of the house, and the other wing, also five cubits long, was joined to the wing of the first cherub. 12 Similarly one wing of the second cherub was five cubits long and touched the other temple wall, and its other wing, also five cubits long, touched the wing of the first cherub.
13 The wings of these cherubim extended twenty cubits; the cherubim stood on their feet, facing the nave. 13 The wings of these cherubim extended twenty cubits. They stood on their feet, facing the main hall.
14 And Solomon made the curtain of blue and purple and crimson fabrics and fine linen, and worked cherubim into it. 14 He made the curtain of blue, purple and crimson yarn and fine linen, with cherubim worked into it.
15 In front of the house he made two pillars thirty-five cubits high, with a capital of five cubits on the top of each. 15 In the front of the temple he made two pillars, which [together] were thirty-five cubits long, each with a capital on top measuring five cubits.
