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.
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.
And the greater house he cieled with fir tree, which he overlaid with fine gold, and set thereon palm trees and chains.
And he garnished the house with precious stones for beauty: and the gold was
gold of Parvaim.
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.
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.
And the weight of the nails was
fifty shekels of gold. And he overlaid the upper chambers with gold.
And in the most holy house he made two cherubims of image work, and overlaid them with gold.
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.
