1 Et coepit Salomon aedificare domum Domini in Ierusalem in monte Moria, qui demonstratus fuerat a David patre eius, in loco, quem paraverat David in area Ornan Iebusaei.
2 Coepit autem aedificare mense secundo anno quarto regni sui.
3 Et hae sunt mensurae, quas statuit Salomon, ut aedificaret domum Dei: longitudinis cubiti in mensura prima sexaginta, latitudinis cubiti viginti.
4 Porticum vero ante frontem, quae tendebatur in longum, iuxta mensuram latitudinis domus, cubitorum viginti; porro altitudo centum viginti cubitorum erat. Et deauravit eam intrinsecus auro mundissimo.
5 Domum quoque maiorem texit tabulis ligneis abiegnis et laminas auri obryzi affixit per totum; scalpsitque in eis palmas et quasi catenulas se invicem complectentes.
6 Stravit quoque pavimentum templi pretiosissimo marmore decore multo.
7 Porro aurum erat de Parvaim, de cuius laminis texit domum, et trabes eius et postes et parietes et ostia; et caelavit cherubim in parietibus.
8 Fecit quoque domum sancti sanctorum: longitudinem iuxta latitudinem domus cubitorum viginti et latitudinem similiter viginti cubitorum; et laminis auri optimi texit eam quasi talentis sescentis.
9 Sed et pro clavis usus est auro ponderis quinquaginta siclorum. Cenacula quoque texit auro.
10 Fecit etiam in domo sancti sanctorum cherubim duos opere statuario et texit eos auro.
11 Alae cherubim viginti cubitis extendebantur, ita ut una ala haberet cubitos quinque et tangeret parietem domus, et altera quinque cubitos habens alam tangeret alterius cherub.
12 Similiter cherub alterius ala quinque habebat cubitos et tangebat parietem, et ala eius altera quinque cubitorum alam cherub alterius contingebat.
13 Igitur alae utriusque cherubim expansae erant et extendebantur per cubitos viginti; ipsi autem stabant erectis pedibus, et facies eorum erant versae ad exteriorem domum.
14 Fecit quoque velum ex hyacintho, purpura, cocco et bysso et intexuit ei cherubim.
15 Ante fores etiam templi duas columnas, quae triginta et quinque cubitos habebant altitudinis; porro capita earum quinque cubitorum.
16 Necnon et quasi catenulas in torque, et superposuit eas capitibus columnarum; malogranata etiam centum, quae catenulis interposuit.
17 Ipsas quoque columnas posuit ante faciem templi, unam a dextris et alteram a sinistris; eam, quae a dextris erat, vocavit Iachin et, quae ad laevam, Booz.
King James Version
1 Then Solomon began to build the house of the LORD at Jerusalem in mount Moriah, where the LORD appeared unto David his father, in the place that David had prepared in the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite.
2 And he began to build in the second day of the second month, in the fourth year of his reign.
3 ¶ Now these are the things wherein Solomon was instructed for the building of the house of God. The length by cubits after the first measure was threescore cubits, and the breadth twenty cubits.
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 height was an hundred and twenty: and he overlaid it within with pure gold.
5 And the greater house he cieled with fir tree, which he overlaid with fine gold, and set thereon palm trees and chains.
6 And he garnished the house with precious stones for beauty: and the gold was gold of Parvaim.
7 He overlaid also the house, the beams, the posts, and the walls thereof, and the doors thereof, with gold; and graved cherubims on the walls.
8 And he made the most holy house, the length whereof was according to the breadth of the house, twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof twenty cubits: and he overlaid it with fine gold, amounting to six hundred talents.
9 And the weight of the nails was fifty shekels of gold. And he overlaid the upper chambers with gold.
10 And in the most holy house he made two cherubims of image work, and overlaid them with gold.
11 ¶ And the wings of the cherubims 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.
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.
13 The wings of these cherubims spread themselves forth twenty cubits: and they stood on their feet, and their faces were inward.
14 ¶ And he made the vail of blue, and purple, and crimson, and fine linen, and wrought cherubims thereon.
15 Also he made before the house two pillars of thirty and five cubits high, and the chapiter that was on the top of each of them was five cubits.
16 And he made chains, as in the oracle, and put them on the heads of the pillars; and made an hundred pomegranates, and put them on the chains.
17 And he reared up 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 Boaz.
