1 Kings chapter 6

1
And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month Zif, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of the LORD.
2
And the house which king Solomon built for the LORD, the length thereof was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof twenty cubits, and the height thereof thirty cubits.
3
And the porch before the temple of the house, twenty cubits was the length thereof, according to the breadth of the house; and ten cubits was the breadth thereof before the house.
4
And for the house he made windows of narrow lights.
5
And against the wall of the house he built chambers round about, against the walls of the house round about, both of the temple and of the oracle: and he made chambers round about:
6
The nethermost chamber was five cubits broad, and the middle was six cubits broad, and the third was seven cubits broad: for without in the wall of the house he made narrowed rests round about, that the beams should not be fastened in the walls of the house.
7
And the house, when it was in building, was built of stone made ready before it was brought thither: so that there was neither hammer nor axe nor any tool of iron heard in the house, while it was in building.
8
The door for the middle chamber was in the right side of the house: and they went up with winding stairs into the middle chamber, and out of the middle into the third.
9
So he built the house, and finished it; and covered the house with beams and boards of cedar.
10
And then he built chambers against all the house, five cubits high: and they rested on the house with timber of cedar.
11
And the word of the LORD came to Solomon, saying,
12
Concerning this house which thou art in building, if thou wilt walk in my statutes, and execute my judgments, and keep all my commandments to walk in them; then will I perform my word with thee, which I spake unto David thy father:
13
And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will not forsake my people Israel.
14
So Solomon built the house, and finished it.
15
And he built the walls of the house within with boards of cedar, both the floor of the house, and the walls of the cieling: and he covered them on the inside with wood, and covered the floor of the house with planks of fir.
16
And 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.
17
And the house, that is, the temple before it, was forty cubits long.
18
And the cedar of the house within was carved with knops and open flowers: all was cedar; there was no stone seen.
19
And the oracle he prepared in the house within, to set there the ark of the covenant of the LORD.
20
And 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.
21
So 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.
22
And 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.
23
And within the oracle he made two cherubims of olive tree, each ten cubits high.
24
And 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.
25
And the other cherub was ten cubits: both the cherubims were of one measure and one size.
26
The height of the one cherub was ten cubits, and so was it of the other cherub.
27
And 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.
28
And he overlaid the cherubims with gold.
29
And he carved all the walls of the house round about with carved figures of cherubims and palm trees and open flowers, within and without.
30
And the floor of the house he overlaid with gold, within and without.
31
And for the entering of the oracle he made doors of olive tree: the lintel and side posts were a fifth part of the wall.
32
The 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.
33
So also made he for the door of the temple posts of olive tree, a fourth part of the wall.
34
And 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.
35
And he carved thereon cherubims and palm trees and open flowers: and covered them with gold fitted upon the carved work.
36
And he built the inner court with three rows of hewed stone, and a row of cedar beams.
37
In the fourth year was the foundation of the house of the LORD laid, in the month Zif:
38
And in the eleventh year, in the month Bul, which is the eighth month, was the house finished throughout all the parts thereof, and according to all the fashion of it. So was he seven years in building it.

2 Chronicles chapter 3

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.

Psalm chapter 97

1
The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.
2
Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.
3
A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about.
4
His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.
5
The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
6
The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.
7
Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all ye gods.
8
Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of thy judgments, O LORD.
9
For thou, LORD, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods.
10
Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
11
Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.
12
Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

Romans chapter 1

1
Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,
2
Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)
3
Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;
4
And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:
5
By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:
6
Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ:
7
To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
8
First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.
9
For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers;
10
Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you.
11
For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established;
12
That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.
13
Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles.
14
I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise.
15
So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.
16
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
17
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
18
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19
Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29
Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30
Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31
Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32
Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
