1 Factum est igitur quadringente simo et octogesimo anno egres sionis filiorum Israel de terra Aegypti, in anno quarto, mense Ziv - ipse est mensis secundus - regni Salomonis super Israel, aedificare coepit domum Domino.
2 Domus autem, quam aedificabat rex Salomon Domino, habebat sexaginta cubitos in longitudine et viginti cubitos in latitudine et triginta cubitos in altitudine.
3 Et porticus erat ante templum viginti cubitorum longitudinis iuxta mensuram latitudinis templi et habebat decem cubitos latitudinis ante faciem templi.
4 Fecitque in templo fenestras cum marginibus et cancellis.
5 Et aedificavit contra parietem templi tabulata per gyrum in parietibus domus per circuitum templi et Dabir et fecit latera in circuitu.
6 Tabulatum, quod subter erat, quinque cubitos habebat latitudinis et medium tabulatum sex cubitorum latitudinis et tertium tabulatum septem habens cubitos latitudinis; gradus enim posuit in domo per circuitum forinsecus, ut non ingrederentur trabes in muros templi.
7 Domus autem cum aedificaretur, lapidibus dedolatis atque perfectis aedificata est; et malleus et securis et omne ferramentum non sunt audita in domo, cum aedificaretur.
8 Ostium lateris inferioris in parte erat domus dextrae, et per cochleam ascendebant in medium latus et a medio in tertium.
9 Et aedificavit domum et consummavit eam; texit quoque domum laquearibus cedrinis.
10 Aedificavit ergo stratum contra omnem domum quinque cubitis altitudinis et iunxit domui lignis cedrinis.
11 Et factus est sermo Domini ad Salomonem dicens:
6:12" Domus haec, quam aedificas, si ambulaveris in praeceptis meis et iudicia mea feceris et custodieris omnia mandata mea gradiens per ea, firmabo sermonem meum tibi, quem locutus sum ad David patrem tuum;
13 et habitabo in medio filiorum Israel et non derelinquam populum meum Israel".
14 Igitur aedificavit Salomon domum et consummavit eam.
15 Et aedificavit parietes domus intrinsecus tabulis cedrinis; a pavimento domus usque ad summitatem parietum et usque ad laquearia operuit lignis intrinsecus et texit pavimentum domus tabulis abiegnis.
16 Aedificavitque viginti cubitorum a posteriore parte templi tabulis cedrinis a pavimento usque ad superiora; et fecit ei intrinsecus Dabir, id est sancta sanctorum.
17 Porro quadraginta cubitorum erat ipsum templum ante illud.
18 Et cedrus in domo intrinsecus sculptas habebat colocynthidas et calices apertos florum. Omnia cedrinis tabulis vestiebantur, nec omnino lapis apparere poterat in pariete.
19 Dabir autem in medio domus in interiori parte fecerat, ut poneret ibi arcam foederis Domini.
20 Habebat viginti cubitos longitudinis et viginti cubitos latitudinis et viginti cubitos altitudinis; et vestivit illud auro purissimo et fecit altare cedrinum ante Dabir.
21 Domum quoque operuit Salomon intrinsecus auro purissimo et posuit catenas aureas ante Dabir.
22 Nihilque erat in templo, quod non auro tegeretur; sed et totum altare Dabir texit auro.
23 Et fecit in Dabir duos cherubim de lignis oleastri decem cubitorum altitudinis.
24 Quinque cubitorum ala cherub una et quinque cubitorum ala cherub altera, id est decem cubitos habentes a summitate alae unius usque ad alae alterius summitatem.
25 Decem quoque cubitorum erat cherub secundus, mensura par et effigies una erat duobus cherubim;
26 altitudinem habebat unus cherub decem cubitorum et similiter cherub secundus.
27 Posuitque cherubim in medio templi interioris; extendebant autem alas suas cherubim, et tangebat ala una parietem et ala cherub secundi tangebat parietem alterum; alae autem alterae in media parte templi se invicem contingebant.
28 Texit quoque cherubim auro.
29 Et omnes parietes templi per circuitum scalpsit variis caelaturis; et fecit in eis cherubim et palmas et calices apertos florum intrinsecus et foras.
30 Sed et pavimentum domus texit auro intrinsecus et extrinsecus.
31 Et pro ingressu Dabir fecit valvas de lignis oleastri postesque cum marginibus quinque.
32 Et in duabus valvis de lignis oleastri scalpsit cherubim et palmas et calices apertos florum et vestivit ea auro operiens tam cherubim quam palmas et cetera auro.
33 Fecitque eodem modo pro introitu templi postes cum quattuor marginibus de lignis oleastri
34 et duas valvas de lignis abiegnis; et utraque valva duplex erat et versatilis.
35 Et scalpsit cherubim et palmas et calices apertos florum operuitque omnia laminis aureis.
36 Et aedificavit atrium interius tribus ordinibus lapidum politorum et uno ordine lignorum cedri.
37 Anno quarto fundata est domus Domini in mense Ziv;
38 et in anno undecimo, mense Bul - ipse est mensis octavus - perfecta est domus in omni opere suo et in universis utensilibus; aedificavitque eam annis septem.
King James Version
1 And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month Zif, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of the LORD.
2 And the house which king Solomon built for the LORD, the length thereof was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof twenty cubits, and the height thereof thirty cubits.
3 And the porch before the temple of the house, twenty cubits was the length thereof, according to the breadth of the house; and ten cubits was the breadth thereof before the house.
4 And for the house he made windows of narrow lights.
5 ¶ And against the wall of the house he built chambers round about, against the walls of the house round about, both of the temple and of the oracle: and he made chambers round about:
6 The nethermost chamber was five cubits broad, and the middle was six cubits broad, and the third was seven cubits broad: for without in the wall of the house he made narrowed rests round about, that the beams should not be fastened in the walls of the house.
7 And the house, when it was in building, was built of stone made ready before it was brought thither: so that there was neither hammer nor axe nor any tool of iron heard in the house, while it was in building.
8 The door for the middle chamber was in the right side of the house: and they went up with winding stairs into the middle chamber, and out of the middle into the third.
9 So he built the house, and finished it; and covered the house with beams and boards of cedar.
10 And then he built chambers against all the house, five cubits high: and they rested on the house with timber of cedar.
11 ¶ And the word of the LORD came to Solomon, saying,
12 Concerning this house which thou art in building, if thou wilt walk in my statutes, and execute my judgments, and keep all my commandments to walk in them; then will I perform my word with thee, which I spake unto David thy father:
13 And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will not forsake my people Israel.
14 So Solomon built the house, and finished it.
15 And he built the walls of the house within with boards of cedar, both the floor of the house, and the walls of the cieling: and he covered them on the inside with wood, and covered the floor of the house with planks of fir.
16 And he built twenty cubits on the sides of the house, both the floor and the walls with boards of cedar: he even built them for it within, even for the oracle, even for the most holy place.
17 And the house, that is, the temple before it, was forty cubits long.
18 And the cedar of the house within was carved with knops and open flowers: all was cedar; there was no stone seen.
19 And the oracle he prepared in the house within, to set there the ark of the covenant of the LORD.
20 And the oracle in the forepart was twenty cubits in length, and twenty cubits in breadth, and twenty cubits in the height thereof: and he overlaid it with pure gold; and so covered the altar which was of cedar.
21 So Solomon overlaid the house within with pure gold: and he made a partition by the chains of gold before the oracle; and he overlaid it with gold.
22 And the whole house he overlaid with gold, until he had finished all the house: also the whole altar that was by the oracle he overlaid with gold.
23 ¶ And within the oracle he made two cherubims of olive tree, each ten cubits high.
24 And five cubits was the one wing of the cherub, and five cubits the other wing of the cherub: from the uttermost part of the one wing unto the uttermost part of the other were ten cubits.
25 And the other cherub was ten cubits: both the cherubims were of one measure and one size.
26 The height of the one cherub was ten cubits, and so was it of the other cherub.
27 And he set the cherubims within the inner house: and they stretched forth the wings of the cherubims, so that the wing of the one touched the one wall, and the wing of the other cherub touched the other wall; and their wings touched one another in the midst of the house.
28 And he overlaid the cherubims with gold.
29 And he carved all the walls of the house round about with carved figures of cherubims and palm trees and open flowers, within and without.
30 And the floor of the house he overlaid with gold, within and without.
31 ¶ And for the entering of the oracle he made doors of olive tree: the lintel and side posts were a fifth part of the wall.
32 The two doors also were of olive tree; and he carved upon them carvings of cherubims and palm trees and open flowers, and overlaid them with gold, and spread gold upon the cherubims, and upon the palm trees.
33 So also made he for the door of the temple posts of olive tree, a fourth part of the wall.
34 And the two doors were of fir tree: the two leaves of the one door were folding, and the two leaves of the other door were folding.
35 And he carved thereon cherubims and palm trees and open flowers: and covered them with gold fitted upon the carved work.
36 ¶ And he built the inner court with three rows of hewed stone, and a row of cedar beams.
37 ¶ In the fourth year was the foundation of the house of the LORD laid, in the month Zif:
38 And in the eleventh year, in the month Bul, which is the eighth month, was the house finished throughout all the parts thereof, and according to all the fashion of it. So was he seven years in building it.
