Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate.  Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach.  For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.

10. Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I might go out and come in before this people, for who can judge this nation of yours, which is so great?”

11. And God said to Solomon, “Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked for riches, possessions, or glory, nor for the life of your enemies, nor yet did you ask for long life, but you have asked for yourself wisdom and knowledge that you might judge my people over whom I have made you king,

12.that wisdom and that knowledge are granted to you, and I will give you riches, and possessions, and glory such as none of the kings had who were before you, and after you, there shall not be the like.”

1. And Solomon was intent to build a house for the name of Jehovah and a house for his kingdom.

2. And Solomon numbered seventy thousand men to bear burdens, and eighty thousand men to hew in the mountain, and three thousand six hundred to oversee them.

3. And Solomon sent to Huram, King of Tyre, saying, “Deal with me as you dealt with my father David when you sent him cedars to build a house for him to dwell in.

4.Behold, I am building a house for the name of Jehovah my God, to consecrate it to Him, to offer before Him fragrant incense, and continual showbread, and burnt offerings morning and evening, for sabbaths, and for new moons, and for appointed feasts of Jehovah our God. Forever shall this be an ordinance for Israel.

5.Moreover, the house that I am building will be great, for our God is greater than all the gods.

6.But who is able to build Him a house? Indeed, the heavens, even the heavens of heavens, cannot contain Him! And who am I that I should build Him a house, except to offer incense before Him?

7.So, send me now a man skilled to work in gold, and silver, and bronze, and iron, and purple, and crimson, and blue, and who knows how to engrave engravings with the skillful men who are with me in Judah and in Jerusalem whom David my father has provided.

8.Send me also cedar, cypress, and algum trees from Lebanon, for I know that your servants know how to cut the trees of Lebanon, and behold, my servants will be with your servants.

9.And provide for me timber in abundance because the house that I am building is great and will cause wonder.

10.And behold, I will give to your servants, the hewers who cut timber, twenty thousand cors of beaten wheat, twenty thousand cors of barley, and twenty thousand baths of wine, and twenty thousand baths of oil.”

11. And Huram, King of Tyre, answered in writing that he sent to Solomon, “Because Jehovah loves His people, He has made you king over them.”

12. Huram also said, “Blessed be Jehovah, God of Israel, who made the heavens and the earth, who has given to David the King a wise son endowed with discretion and understanding, who will build a house for Jehovah and a house for his kingdom.

13.So, I have now sent a wise man endowed with understanding, Huram-Abi,

14.the son of a woman from the daughters of Dan, and his father was a man of Tyre, skilled to work with gold, and with silver, with bronze, with iron, with stone, and with wood, with purple, with blue, and with fine linen, and with crimson, and to engrave any engraving, and to execute any plan that is given to him, with your wise men and the wise men of my lord David, your father.

15.And the wheat and barley, the oil and the wine that my lord has spoken of, let him now send them to his servants.

16.And we will cut trees from Lebanon as much as you need, and we will bring them to you by sea on rafts to Joppa. Then you will take them up to Jerusalem.”

17. Then Solomon numbered all the men who were sojourners in the land of Israel, after the numbering by which his father David had numbered them, and one hundred fifty-three thousand six hundred were found.

18. Of them, he made seventy thousand burden bearers, and eighty thousand hewers in the mountain, and three thousand six hundred overseers to make the people work.

2Chronicles 3

1. And Solomon began to build the house of the Lord in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, where He appeared to 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 month, on the second day, in the fourth year of his reign.

3. Now these are the measurements of the foundation laid by Solomon for building the house of God: the length in cubits (by the former measure) was sixty cubits, and the width was twenty cubits.

4. And the porch that was in front was twenty cubits long, corresponding to the width of the house, and the height was one hundred and twenty, and he overlaid it within with pure gold.

5. And the greater house, he overlaid with cypress boards, and he overlaid them with pure gold and wrought on them palms and chains.

6. And he adorned the house with costly stone for beauty, and the gold was gold of Parvaim,

7.and he overlaid the house — the beams, the thresholds, and its walls, and its doors — with gold, and he engraved cherubim on the walls.

8. And he made the place of the Most Holy. Its length was according to the width of the house, twenty cubits, and its width was twenty cubits, and he overlaid it with six hundred talents of pure gold.

9. And the weight of the nails was fifty shekels of gold, and he overlaid the upper chambers with gold.

10. And he made within the Most Holy place two cherubim of carved work, and he overlaid them with gold.

11. As for the wings of the cherubim, their length was twenty cubits. The one wing was five cubits, touching a wall of the house, and the other wing was five cubits touching the wing of the other cherub.

12. And the wing of the other cherub was five cubits, touching a wall of the house, and the other wing was five cubits, joined to the wing of the other cherub.

13. The wings of these cherubim spread out twenty cubits, and they stood upon their feet, and their faces were toward the house.[1]

14. And he made the veil of blue, and purple, and crimson, and fine linen, and he wrought cherubim upon it.

15. He also made in front of the house two pillars thirty-five cubits in length, with an overlaid chapiter of five cubits on top of each.

16. He also made chains before the oracle and put them on top of the pillars, and he made a hundred pomegranates and put them on the chains.

17. And he raised the pillars in front of the temple, one on the right and one on the left, and he called the name of the one on the right, Jachin, and the name of the one on the left, Boaz.

1. And he made a bronze altar. Its length was twenty cubits, and its width was twenty cubits, and its height was ten cubits.

2. And he made the molten sea, circular, ten cubits from its brim to its brim all around. And its height was five cubits, and a line of thirty cubits compassed it about.

3. And under it was the likeness of oxen surrounding it round about, ten cubits encompassing the sea all around. Two rows of oxen were cast when it was cast.

4. It stood on twelve oxen, three facing north, and three facing west, and three facing south, and three facing east. And the sea was above them, and all their back parts were inward.

5. And its thickness was a handbreadth, and its rim was made like the rim of a cup, like a lily flower. It was able to contain three-thousand baths.

6. He also made ten lavers, and he put five on the right and five on the left to wash in them: they rinsed the work of the burnt offering in them. And the sea was for the priests to wash in.

7. And he made ten menorahs of gold according to their specification, and he put them in the temple, five on the right and five on the left.

8. And he made ten tables, and he placed them in the temple, five on the right and five on the left. And he made a hundred basins of gold.

9. He also made the court of the priests, and the great court, and gates for the court, and he overlaid their gates with bronze.

10. And he placed the sea on the right side of the house, toward the southeast.

11. And Huram made the pans, and the shovels, and the basins. And Huram finished doing all the work that he made for King Solomon for the house of God:

12.two pillars, and two bowls of the chapiters were on the top of the two pillars, and the two lattice-works for covering the two bowls of the chapiters that were on the top of the pillars;

13.and four hundred pomegranates for the two lattice-works, two rows of pomegranates for one lattice-work for covering the two bowls of the chapiters that were on the faces of the pillars;

14.and he made bases, and he made lavers on the bases;

15.the one sea and the twelve oxen underneath it;

16.and the pans, and the shovels, and the meathooks. And all the vessels Huram-Abi made for King Solomon for the house of the Lord were polished bronze.

17. The King cast them in the area of the Jordan, in the clayey ground between Succoth and Zeredathah.

18. And Solomon made all these vessels, so very many that the weight of the bronze could not be ascertained.

19. And Solomon made all the vessels that were in the house of God: even the altar of gold; and the tables; and the Bread of the Presence on them;

20.and the menorahs; and their lamps of pure gold, to burn according to the ordinance before the oracle;

21.and the flowers, and the lamps, and the tongs, of gold (it was purest gold);

22.and the snuffers, and the basins, and the spoons, and the fire-pans, of pure gold; the entrance of the house, its innermost doors to the Holy of Holies; and doors of the house for the temple, of gold.

3. And the King turned his face and blessed all the congregation of Israel, and all the congregation of Israel was standing.

4. And he said, “Blessed be Jehovah, God of Israel, who with His hands has fulfilled that which He spoke with His mouth to my father David, saying,

5.‘From the day I brought my people out of the land of Egypt, I chose no city of all the tribes of Israel to build a house, that my name may be there, and I chose no man to be leader over my people Israel.

6.Yet, I have chosen Jerusalem, that my name might be there, and I have chosen David to be over my people Israel.’
