1 Kings 7:2-12

2 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.
3 The hall was covered with cedar above the side rooms, which were supported by 45 pillars (15 per row).
4 The windows were in three rows facing each other on opposite sides [of the palace].
5 All the doors and doorframes were square. There were three doors facing each other on opposite sides [of the palace].
6 Solomon made the Hall of Pillars 75 feet long and 45 feet wide. In front of the hall was an entrance hall with pillars.
7 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.
8 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.
9 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.
10 The foundation was made with large, high-grade stones (some 12 feet long, others 15 feet long).
11 Above [the foundation] were cedar beams and high-grade stone blocks, which had been cut to size.
12 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.
