THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

1 Kings (Author Compiled by Isaiah and Jeremiah from records of Nathan, Gad, Iddo, Ahijah, Jehu and others.)

6:16And 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.

6:19And the oracle he prepared in the house within, to set there the ark of the covenant of the LORD.

6:20And 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.

6:21So 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.

6:22And 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.

6:23And within the oracle he made two cherubims of olive tree, each ten cubits high.

6:24And 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.

6:25And the other cherub was ten cubits: both the cherubims were of one measure and one size.

6:26The height of the one cherub was ten cubits, and so was it of the other cherub.

6:27And 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.

6:28And he overlaid the cherubims with gold.

6:29And he carved all the walls of the house round about with carved figures of cherubims and palm trees and open flowers, within and without.

6:30And the floor of the house he overlaid with gold, within and without.

6:31And for the entering of the oracle he made doors of olive tree: the lintel and side posts were a fifth part of the wall.

6:32The 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.

6:33So also made he for the door of the temple posts of olive tree, a fourth part of the wall.

6:34And 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.

6:35And he carved thereon cherubims and palm trees and open flowers: and covered them with gold fitted upon the carved work.

2 Chronicles (Author Compiled by Isaiah and Ezra from records of Nathan, Gad, Iddo, Ahijah, Jehu and others.)

3:8And 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.

3:9And the weight of the nails was fifty shekels of gold. And he overlaid the upper chambers with gold.

3:10And in the most holy house he made two cherubims of image work, and overlaid them with gold.

3:11And 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.

3:12And 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.

3:13The wings of these cherubims spread themselves forth twenty cubits: and they stood on their feet, and their faces were inward.

3:14And he made the vail of blue, and purple, and crimson, and fine linen, and wrought cherubims thereon.

4:22And the snuffers, and the basons, and the spoons, and the censers, of pure gold: and the entry of the house, the inner doors thereof for the most holy place, and the doors of the house of the temple, were of gold.
