2 Chronicles 3

NIRV 1 Then Solomon began to build the temple of the Lord. He built it on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem. That's where the LORD had appeared to Solomon's father David. He had appeared at the threshing floor of Araunah. Araunah was from Jebus. David had provided the threshing floor. NIV 1 Then Solomon began to build the temple of the LORD in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, where the LORD had appeared to his father David. It was on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite, the place provided by David. NIRV 2 Solomon began building the temple on the second day of the second month. It was in the fourth year of his rule. NIV 2 He began building on the second day of the second month in the fourth year of his reign. NIRV 3 Solomon laid the foundation for God's temple. It was 90 feet long and 30 feet wide. Solomon's men followed the standard measure that was used at that time. NIV 3 The foundation Solomon laid for building the temple of God was sixty cubits long and twenty cubits wide (using the cubit of the old standard). NIRV 4 The porch in front of the temple was 30 feet across and 30 feet high. Solomon covered the inside of the temple with pure gold. NIV 4 The portico at the front of the temple was twenty cubits long across the width of the building and twenty cubits high. He overlaid the inside with pure gold. NIRV 5 He covered the inside of the main hall with pine boards. Then he covered the boards with fine gold. He decorated the hall with palm tree patterns and chain patterns. NIV 5 He paneled the main hall with juniper and covered it with fine gold and decorated it with palm tree and chain designs. NIRV 6 He decorated the temple with valuable jewels. The gold he used came from Parvaim. NIV 6 He adorned the temple with precious stones. And the gold he used was gold of Parvaim. NIRV 7 He covered the ceiling beams, doorframes, walls and doors of the temple with gold. He carved cherubim on the walls. NIV 7 He overlaid the ceiling beams, doorframes, walls and doors of the temple with gold, and he carved cherubim on the walls. NIRV 8 He built the Most Holy Room. It was as long as the temple was wide. It was 30 feet long and 30 feet wide. He covered the inside of the Most Holy Room with 23 tons of fine gold. NIV 8 He built the Most Holy Place, its length corresponding to the width of the temple—twenty cubits long and twenty cubits wide. He overlaid the inside with six hundred talents of fine gold. NIRV 9 He also covered the upper parts with gold. The gold on the nails weighed 20 ounces. NIV 9 The gold nails weighed fifty shekels. He also overlaid the upper parts with gold. NIRV 10 For the Most Holy Room, Solomon made a pair of carved cherubim. He covered them with gold. NIV 10 For the Most Holy Place he made a pair of sculptured cherubim and overlaid them with gold. NIRV 11 The total length of the cherubim's wings from tip to tip was 30 feet. One wing of the first cherub was seven and a half feet long. Its tip touched the temple wall. The other wing was also seven and a half feet long. Its tip touched the wing tip of the other cherub. NIV 11 The total wingspan of the cherubim was twenty cubits. One wing of the first cherub was five cubits long and touched the temple wall, while its other wing, also five cubits long, touched the wing of the other cherub. NIRV 12 In the same way one wing of the second cherub was seven and a half feet long. Its tip touched the other temple wall. The other wing was also seven and a half feet long. Its tip touched the wing tip of the first cherub. NIV 12 Similarly one wing of the second cherub was five cubits long and touched the other temple wall, and its other wing, also five cubits long, touched the wing of the first cherub. NIRV 13 So the total length of the wings of the two cherubim was 30 feet from tip to tip. The cherubim stood facing the main hall. NIV 13 The wings of these cherubim extended twenty cubits. They stood on their feet, facing the main hall. NIRV 14 Solomon made the curtain out of blue, purple and bright red yarn and fine linen. A skilled worker sewed cherubim into its pattern. NIV 14 He made the curtain of blue, purple and crimson yarn and fine linen, with cherubim worked into it. NIRV 15 In front of the temple, Solomon made two pillars. Each pillar was 26 feet tall. Each had a decorated top that was seven and a half feet high. NIV 15 For the front of the temple he made two pillars, which together were thirty-five cubits long, each with a capital five cubits high. NIRV 16 Solomon made chains that were linked together. He put them on top of the pillars. He also made 100 pomegranates. He fastened them to the chains. NIV 16 He made interwoven chains and put them on top of the pillars. He also made a hundred pomegranates and attached them to the chains. NIRV 17 Solomon set the pillars up in front of the temple. One was on the south. The other was on the north. He named the one on the south Jakin. The one on the north he named Boaz. NIV 17 He erected the pillars in the front of the temple, one to the south and one to the north. The one to the south he named Jakin and the one to the north Boaz.
