twenty ounces of gold were used for making nails, and the walls of the upper rooms were also covered with gold.
The king also had his workers make two winged creatures out of metal, cover them with gold, and place them in the Most Holy Place, 1
where they stood side by side facing the entrance. Each had two wings, each wing 7 1/2 feet long, which were spread out so that they touched each other in the center of the room and reached to the wall on either side of the room, stretching across the full width of 30 feet.
A curtain for the Most Holy Place was made of linen and of other material, which was dyed blue, purple, and red, with designs of the winged creatures worked into it. 2
The king had two columns made, each one 52 feet tall, and placed them in front of the Temple. Each one had a capital 7 1/2 feet tall.
