Forsooth Solomon builded his own house in thirteen years, and brought it till to perfection, or (a) perfect end (or unto completion).
He builded an house (made) of the forest, (or out of the wood,) of Lebanon, of an hundred cubits of length, and of fifty cubits of breadth, and of thirty cubits of height; and he builded four alleys betwixt the pillars of cedars (and he built four rows of cedar pillars); for he had hewn down [the] trees of cedars into pillars.
And he clothed all the chamber(s) with walls of cedar; the which chamber was sustained, or borne up, with five and forty pillars. And one order had fifteen pillars, set against themselves together, (And he covered all the walls of the chambers, or of the rooms, with cedar; and the roof was sustained, or borne up, by forty-five pillars. And each row had fifteen pillars, set in line with each other,)
and beholding themselves each even against (the) other by even space betwixt the pillars; (and there were three rows of windows, one row on each floor, each window in line with the one above, or below;)
and on the pillars were foursquare posts, even in all things. (and the pillars were square posts, even in all things.)
And he made a porch of pillars of fifty cubits of length, and of thirty cubits of breadth; and he made another porch in the face of the greater porch; and he made (the) pillars, and [the] pommels on the pillars. (And he made a colonnade of pillars which was fifty cubits in length, and thirty cubits in breadth; and he made another colonnade in front of the greater colonnade; and so he made the pillars, and the capitals on the pillars.)
Also he made a porch of the king's seat, in which the seat of doom was; and he covered it with wood of cedar, from the pavement unto the highness. (And he made a hall for the king's throne, in which was the throne of judgement; and he covered all the hall with cedar wood, from the floor to the ceiling.)
And a little house, in which he sat to deem, was in the middle porch, by like work. Also Solomon made an house to the daughter of Pharaoh, whom he had wedded, by such work, by what manner work he made and this porch. (And his own house, where he would live, had another hall within a colonnade, by like work. And Solomon made a house for Pharaoh's daughter, whom he had wedded, in the same manner of work with which he had made this hall.)
He made all things of precious stones, that were sawed at a rule and measure, both within and withoutforth, from the foundament unto the highness of [the] walls (from the foundation to the top of the walls), and within and till to the great street, either court(yard).
And the foundaments were of precious stones, great stones of ten, either of eight cubits; (And the foundations were made out of precious stones, great stones of eight or ten cubits;)
and precious stones hewn of even measure were above; in like manner and of cedar. (and above were precious stones, hewn, or cut, of equal measure; and cedar, in like manner.)
