1 Kings 6

HNV 1 It happened in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Yisra'el were come out of the land of Mitzrayim, in the fourth year of Shlomo's reign over Yisra'el, in the month Ziv, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of the LORD. NIV 1 In the four hundred and eightieth year after the Israelites had come out of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month of Ziv, the second month, he began to build the temple of the LORD. HNV 2 The house which king Shlomo built for the LORD, the length of it was sixty cubits, and the breadth of it twenty [cubits], and the height of it thirty cubits. NIV 2 The temple that King Solomon built for the LORD was sixty cubits long, twenty wide and thirty high. HNV 3 The porch before the temple of the house, twenty cubits was the length of it, according to the breadth of the house; [and] ten cubits was the breadth of it before the house. NIV 3 The portico at the front of the main hall of the temple extended the width of the temple, that is twenty cubits, and projected ten cubits from the front of the temple. HNV 4 For the house he made windows of fixed lattice-work. NIV 4 He made narrow clerestory windows in the temple. HNV 5 Against the wall of the house he built stories round about, against the walls of the house round about, both of the temple and of the oracle; and he made side-chambers round about. NIV 5 Against the walls of the main hall and inner sanctuary he built a structure around the building, in which there were side rooms. HNV 6 The nethermost story was five cubits broad, and the middle was six cubits broad, and the third was seven cubits broad; for on the outside he made offsets [in the wall] of the house round about, that [the beams] should not have hold in the walls of the house. NIV 6 The lowest floor was five cubits wide, the middle floor six cubits and the third floor seven. He made offset ledges around the outside of the temple so that nothing would be inserted into the temple walls. HNV 7 The house, when it was in building, was built of stone made ready at the quarry; and there was neither hammer nor ax nor any tool of iron heard in the house, while it was in building. NIV 7 In building the temple, only blocks dressed at the quarry were used, and no hammer, chisel or any other iron tool was heard at the temple site while it was being built. HNV 8 The door for the middle side- chambers was in the right side of the house: and they went up by winding stairs into the middle [story], and out of the middle into the third. NIV 8 The entrance to the lowest floor was on the south side of the temple; a stairway led up to the middle level and from there to the third. HNV 9 So he built the house, and finished it; and he covered the house with beams and planks of cedar. NIV 9 So he built the temple and completed it, roofing it with beams and cedar planks. HNV 10 He built the stories against all the house, each five cubits high: and they rested on the house with timber of cedar. NIV 10 And he built the side rooms all along the temple. The height of each was five cubits, and they were attached to the temple by beams of cedar. HNV 11 The word of the LORD came to Shlomo, saying, NIV 11 The word of the LORD came to Solomon: HNV 12 Concerning this house which you are building, if you will walk in my statutes, and execute my ordinances, and keep all my mitzvot to walk in them; then will I establish my word with you, which I spoke to David your father. NIV 12 "As for this temple you are building, if you follow my decrees, carry out my regulations and keep all my commands and obey them, I will fulfill through you the promise I gave to David your father. HNV 13 I will dwell among the children of Yisra'el, and will not forsake my people Yisra'el. NIV 13 And I will live among the Israelites and will not abandon my people Israel." HNV 14 So Shlomo built the house, and finished it. NIV 14 So Solomon built the temple and completed it. HNV 15 He built the walls of the house within with boards of cedar: from the floor of the house to the walls of the ceiling, he covered them on the inside with wood; and he covered the floor of the house with boards of fir. NIV 15 He lined its interior walls with cedar boards, paneling them from the floor of the temple to the ceiling, and covered the floor of the temple with planks of pine. HNV 16 He built twenty cubits on the hinder part of the house with boards of cedar from the floor to the walls [of the ceiling]: he built [them] for it within, for an oracle, even for the most holy place. NIV 16 He partitioned off twenty cubits at the rear of the temple with cedar boards from floor to ceiling to form within the temple an inner sanctuary, the Most Holy Place. HNV 17 The house, that is, the temple before [the oracle], was forty cubits [long]. NIV 17 The main hall in front of this room was forty cubits long. HNV 18 There was cedar on the house within, carved with buds and open flowers: all was cedar; there was no stone seen. NIV 18 The inside of the temple was cedar, carved with gourds and open flowers. Everything was cedar; no stone was to be seen. HNV 19 He prepared an oracle in the midst of the house within, to set there the ark of the covenant of the LORD. NIV 19 He prepared the inner sanctuary within the temple to set the ark of the covenant of the LORD there. HNV 20 Within the oracle was [a space of] twenty cubits in length, and twenty cubits in breadth, and twenty cubits in the height of it; and he overlaid it with pure gold: and he covered the altar with cedar. NIV 20 The inner sanctuary was twenty cubits long, twenty wide and twenty high. He overlaid the inside with pure gold, and he also overlaid the altar of cedar. HNV 21 So Shlomo overlaid the house within with pure gold: and he drew chains of gold across before the oracle; and he overlaid it with gold. NIV 21 Solomon covered the inside of the temple with pure gold, and he extended gold chains across the front of the inner sanctuary, which was overlaid with gold. HNV 22 The whole house he overlaid with gold, until all the house was finished: also the whole altar that belonged to the oracle he overlaid with gold. NIV 22 So he overlaid the whole interior with gold. He also overlaid with gold the altar that belonged to the inner sanctuary. HNV 23 In the oracle he made two Keruvim of olive-wood, each ten cubits high. NIV 23 In the inner sanctuary he made a pair of cherubim of olive wood, each ten cubits high. HNV 24 Five cubits was the one wing of the Keruv, and five cubits the other wing of the Keruv: from the uttermost part of the one wing to the uttermost part of the other were ten cubits. NIV 24 One wing of the first cherub was five cubits long, and the other wing five cubits--ten cubits from wing tip to wing tip. HNV 25 The other Keruv was ten cubits: both the Keruvim were of one measure and one form. NIV 25 The second cherub also measured ten cubits, for the two cherubim were identical in size and shape. HNV 26 The height of the one Keruv was ten cubits, and so was it of the other Keruv. NIV 26 The height of each cherub was ten cubits. HNV 27 He set the Keruvim within the inner house; and the wings of the Keruvim were stretched forth, so that the wing of the one touched the one wall, and the wing of the other Keruv touched the other wall; and their wings touched one another in the midst of the house. NIV 27 He placed the cherubim inside the innermost room of the temple, with their wings spread out. The wing of one cherub touched one wall, while the wing of the other touched the other wall, and their wings touched each other in the middle of the room. HNV 28 He overlaid the Keruvim with gold. NIV 28 He overlaid the cherubim with gold. HNV 29 He carved all the walls of the house round about with carved figures of Keruvim and palm trees and open flowers, inside and outside. NIV 29 On the walls all around the temple, in both the inner and outer rooms, he carved cherubim, palm trees and open flowers. HNV 30 The floor of the house he overlaid with gold, inside and outside. NIV 30 He also covered the floors of both the inner and outer rooms of the temple with gold. HNV 31 For the entrance of the oracle he made doors of olive-wood: the lintel [and] door-posts were a fifth part [of the wall]. NIV 31 For the entrance of the inner sanctuary he made doors of olive wood with five-sided jambs. HNV 32 So [he made] two doors of olive-wood; and he carved on them carvings of Keruvim and palm trees and open flowers, and overlaid them with gold; and he spread the gold on the Keruvim, and on the palm trees. NIV 32 And on the two olive wood doors he carved cherubim, palm trees and open flowers, and overlaid the cherubim and palm trees with beaten gold. HNV 33 So also made he for the entrance of the temple door-posts of olive-wood, out of a fourth part [of the wall]; NIV 33 In the same way he made four-sided jambs of olive wood for the entrance to the main hall. HNV 34 and two doors of fir-wood: the two leaves of the one door were folding, and the two leaves of the other door were folding. NIV 34 He also made two pine doors, each having two leaves that turned in sockets. HNV 35 He carved [thereon] Keruvim and palm trees and open flowers; and he overlaid them with gold fitted on the engraved work. NIV 35 He carved cherubim, palm trees and open flowers on them and overlaid them with gold hammered evenly over the carvings. HNV 36 He built the inner court with three courses of hewn stone, and a course of cedar beams. NIV 36 And he built the inner courtyard of three courses of dressed stone and one course of trimmed cedar beams. HNV 37 In the fourth year was the foundation of the house of the LORD laid, in the month Ziv. NIV 37 The foundation of the temple of the LORD was laid in the fourth year, in the month of Ziv. HNV 38 In the eleventh year, in the month Bul, which is the eighth month, was the house finished throughout all the parts of it, and according to all the fashion of it. So was he seven years in building it. NIV 38 In the eleventh year in the month of Bul, the eighth month, the temple was finished in all its details according to its specifications. He had spent seven years building it.
