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 cherubim 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 cherubim of image work, and overlaid them with gold.
11: And the wings of the cherubim 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 cherubim 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 cherubim 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.

1: Moreover he made an altar of brass, twenty cubits the length thereof, and twenty cubits the breadth thereof, and ten cubits the height thereof.
2: Also he made a molten sea of ten cubits from brim to brim, round in compass, and five cubits the height thereof; and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.
3: And under it was the similitude of oxen, which did compass it round about: ten in a cubit, compassing the sea round about. Two rows of oxen were cast, when it was cast.
4: It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking toward the north, and three looking toward the west, and three looking toward the south, and three looking toward the east: and the sea was set above upon them, and all their hinder parts were inward.
5: And the thickness of it was an handbreadth, and the brim of it like the work of the brim of a cup, with flowers of lilies; and it received and held three thousand baths.
6: He made also ten lavers, and put five on the right hand, and five on the left, to wash in them: such things as they offered for the burnt offering they washed in them; but the sea was for the priests to wash in.
7: And he made ten candlesticks of gold according to their form, and set them in the temple, five on the right hand, and five on the left.
8: He made also ten tables, and placed them in the temple, five on the right side, and five on the left. And he made an hundred basins of gold.
9: Furthermore he made the court of the priests, and the great court, and doors for the court, and overlaid the doors of them with brass.
10: And he set the sea on the right side of the east end, over against the south.
11: And Huram made the pots, and the shovels, and the basins. And Huram finished the work that he was to make for king Solomon for the house of God;
12: To wit, the two pillars, and the pommels, and the chapiters which were on the top of the two pillars, and the two wreaths to cover the two pommels of the chapiters which were on the top of the pillars;
13: And four hundred pomegranates on the two wreaths; two rows of pomegranates on each wreath, to cover the two pommels of the chapiters which were upon the pillars.
14: He made also bases, and lavers made he upon the bases;
15: One sea, and twelve oxen under it.
16: The pots also, and the shovels, and the fleshhooks, and all their instruments, did Huram his father make to king Solomon for the house of the LORD of bright brass.
17: In the plain of Jordan did the king cast them, in the clay ground between Succoth and Zeredathah.
18: Thus Solomon made all these vessels in great abundance: for the weight of the brass could not be found out.
19: And Solomon made all the vessels that were for the house of God, the golden altar also, and the tables whereon the shewbread was set;
20: Moreover the candlesticks with their lamps, that they should burn after the manner before the oracle, of pure gold;
21: And the flowers, and the lamps, and the tongs, made he of gold, and that perfect gold;
22: And the snuffers, and the basins, 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.

1: Moreover, brethren, we do you to wit of the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia;
2: How that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded unto the riches of their liberality.
3: For to their power, I bear record, yea, and beyond their power they were willing of themselves;
4: Praying us with much intreaty that we would receive the gift, and take upon us the fellowship of the ministering to the saints.
5: And this they did, not as we hoped, but first gave their own selves to the Lord, and unto us by the will of God.
6: Insomuch that we desired Titus, that as he had begun, so he would also finish in you the same grace also.
7: Therefore, as ye abound in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound in this grace also.
8: I speak not by commandment, but by occasion of the forwardness of others, and to prove the sincerity of your love.
9: For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
10: And herein I give my advice: for this is expedient for you, who have begun before, not only to do, but also to be forward a year ago.
11: Now therefore perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have.
12: For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.
13: For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened:
14: But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality:
15: As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack.
16: But thanks be to God, which put the same earnest care into the heart of Titus for you.
17: For indeed he accepted the exhortation; but being more forward, of his own accord he went unto you.
18: And we have sent with him the brother, whose praise is in the gospel throughout all the churches;
19: And not that only, but who was also chosen of the churches to travel with us with this grace, which is administered by us to the glory of the same Lord, and declaration of your ready mind:
20: Avoiding this, that no man should blame us in this abundance which is administered by us:
21: Providing for honest things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men.
22: And we have sent with them our brother, whom we have oftentimes proved diligent in many things, but now much more diligent, upon the great confidence which I have in you.
23: Whether any do enquire of Titus, he is my partner and fellowhelper concerning you: or our brethren be enquired of, they are the messengers of the churches, and the glory of Christ.
24: Wherefore shew ye to them, and before the churches, the proof of your love, and of our boasting on your behalf.
