Second Chronicles 3

3:1 Then Solomon began to build the house of the LORD at
 Jerusalem in mount Moriah, where [the LORD] appeared to David
 his father, in the place that David had prepared in the
 threshing-floor of Ornan the Jebusite.
3:2 And he began to build in the second [day] of the second
 month, in the fourth year of his reign.
3:3 Now these [are the things in which] Solomon was instructed
 for the building of the house of God. The length by cubits
 after the first measure [was] sixty cubits, and the breadth
 twenty cubits.
3:4 And the porch that [was] in the front [of the house], the
 length [of it was] according to the breadth of the house,
 twenty cubits, and the hight [was] a hundred and twenty: and he
 overlaid it within with pure gold.
3:5 And the greater house he cieled with fir tree, which he
 overlaid with fine gold, and set on it palm trees and chains.
3:6 And he garnished the house with precious stones for beauty:
 and the gold [was] gold of Parvaim.
3:7 He overlaid also the house, the beams, the posts, and the
 walls of it, and the doors of it, with gold; and engraved
 cherubim on the walls.
3:8 And he made the most holy house, the length of which [was]
 according to the breadth of the house, twenty cubits, and the
 breadth of it twenty cubits: and he overlaid it with fine gold,
 [amounting] to six hundred talents.
3:9 And the weight of the nails [was] fifty shekels of gold. And
 he overlaid the upper chambers with gold.
3:10 And in the most holy house he made two cherubim of image
 work, and overlaid them with gold.
3:11 And the wings of the cherubim [were] twenty cubits long:
 one wing [of the one cherub was] five cubits, reaching to the
 wall of the house: and the other wing [was likewise] five
 cubits, reaching to the wing of the other cherub.
3:12 And [one] wing of the other cherub [was] five cubits,
 reaching to the wall of the house: and the other wing [was]
 five cubits [also], joining to the wing of the other cherub.
3:13 The wings of these cherubim spread themselves forth twenty
 cubits: and they stood on their feet, and their faces [were]
3:14 And he made the vail [of] blue, and purple, and crimson,
 and fine linen, and wrought cherubim upon it.
3:15 Also he made before the house two pillars of thirty and
 five cubits high, and the capital that [was] on the top of each
 of them [was] five cubits.
3:16 And he made chains, [as] in the oracle, and put them on the
 heads of the pillars; and made a hundred pomegranates, and put
 [them] on the chains.
3:17 And he erected the pillars before the temple, one on the
 right hand, and the other on the left; and called the name of
 that on the right hand Jachin, and the name of that on the left
