and I shall make steadfast his realm into without end, if he shall continue to do my behests and [my] dooms, as and today. (and I shall establish his kingdom forevermore, if he shall continue to do my commands and my judgements/if he shall continue to obey my commands and my laws, as in this day.)

also and he gave him (the) ensample of all (the) things which he thought, of the large places, and of [the] chambers by compass, into the treasures of the house of the Lord, and into the treasures of [the] holy things, (and he also gave him the example for all the things which he had in mind, for the courtyards, and the rooms around them, and the treasuries of the House of the Lord, and the treasuries of the holy things,)
and of the partings of [the] priests and deacons, into all the works of the house of the Lord, and all [the] vessels of service of the temple of the Lord.

Of gold in weight by each vessel of service, and of silver, for [the] diversity of vessels, and of works; (And he told him the weight of the gold for each gold vessel used in its service, and the weight of the silver for the other vessels used for diverse services;)
but also to [the] golden candlesticks, and to their lanterns, he gave gold, for the measure of each candlestick, and of (its) lanterns; also and in [the] silveren candlesticks, and in their lanterns, he betook to them the weight of silver, for the diversity of (the) measure of those.

And he gave gold into the board[s] of setting forth, for the diversity of measure, also and he gave silver into other silveren boards; (And he told him the weight of the gold for the tables for the loaves of proposition, or the loaves of setting forth, and the weight of the silver for the other silver tables;)
