He built a hall [named] the Forest of Lebanon. It was 150 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 45 feet high. It had four rows of cedar pillars supporting cedar beams.
The hall was covered with cedar above the side rooms, which were supported by 45 pillars (15 per row).
The windows were in three rows facing each other on opposite sides [of the palace].
All the doors and doorframes were square. There were three doors facing each other on opposite sides [of the palace].
Solomon made the Hall of Pillars 75 feet long and 45 feet wide. In front of the hall was an entrance hall with pillars.
He made the Hall of Justice, where he sat on his throne and served as judge. The hall was covered with cedar from floor to ceiling.
His own private quarters were in a different location than the Hall of Justice, but they were similar in design. Solomon also built private quarters like this for his wife, Pharaoh's daughter.
From the foundation to the roof, all these buildings, including the large courtyard, were built with high-grade stone blocks. The stone blocks were cut to size and trimmed with saws on their inner and outer faces.
The foundation was made with large, high-grade stones (some 12 feet long, others 15 feet long).
Above [the foundation] were cedar beams and high-grade stone blocks, which had been cut to size.
The large courtyard had three layers of cut stone blocks and a layer of cedar beams, like the inner courtyard of the LORD's temple and the entrance hall.
