NAS 1 Now it came about in the four hundred and eightieth year after the sons of Israel came out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month of 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. NAS 2 As for the house which King Solomon built for the LORD , its length was sixty cubits and its width twenty cubits and its height thirty cubits. NIV 2 The temple that King Solomon built for the LORD was sixty cubits long, twenty wide and thirty high. NAS 3 The porch in front of the nave of the house was twenty cubits in length, corresponding to the width of the house, and its depth along the front of the house was ten cubits. 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. NAS 4 Also for the house he made windows with artistic frames. NIV 4 He made narrow clerestory windows in the temple. NAS 5 Against the wall of the house he built stories encompassing the walls of the house around both the nave and the inner sanctuary; thus he made side chambers all around. 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. NAS 6 The lowest story was five cubits wide, and the middle was six cubits wide, and the third was seven cubits wide; for on the outside he made offsets in the wall of the house all around in order that the beams would not be inserted 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. NAS 7 The house, while it was being built, was built of stone prepared at the quarry, and there was neither hammer nor axe nor any iron tool heard in the house while it was being built. 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. NAS 8 The doorway for the lowest side chamber was on the right side of the house; and they would go up by winding stairs to the middle story, and from the middle to 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. NAS 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. NAS 10 He also built the stories against the whole house, each five cubits high; and they were fastened to the house with timbers 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. NAS 11 Now the word of the LORD came to Solomon saying, NIV 11 The word of the LORD came to Solomon: NAS 12 "Concerning this house which you are building, if you will walk in My statutes and execute My ordinances and keep all My commandments by walking in them, then I will carry out 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. NAS 13 "I will dwell among the sons of Israel, and will not forsake My people Israel." NIV 13 And I will live among the Israelites and will not abandon my people Israel."

NAS 27 He placed the cherubim in the midst of the inner house, and the wings of the cherubim were spread out, so that the wing of the one was touching the one wall, and the wing of the other cherub was touching the other wall. So their wings were touching each other in the center of the house. NIV 27 He placed the cherubim inside the innermost room of the temple, with their wings spread out.
