Divrei Hayamim II (Book of 2 Chronicles), Chapter 3
'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 Then Solomon began to build the house of HaShem at Jerusalem in mount Moriah, where HaShem appeared unto David his father; for which provision had been made in the Place of David, in the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 And he began to build in the second day of the second month, in the fourth year of his reign.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 Now these are the foundations which Solomon laid for the building of the house of G-d. The length by cubits after the ancient measure was threescore cubits, and the breadth twenty cubits.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 And the porch that was before the house, the length of it, according to the breadth of the house, was twenty cubits, and the height a hundred and twenty; and he overlaid it within with pure gold.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 And the greater house he covered with cypress-wood, which he overlaid with fine gold, and wrought thereon palm-trees and chains.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 And he garnished the house with precious stones for beauty; and the gold was gold of Parvaim.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 He overlaid also the house, the beams, the thresholds, and the walls thereof, and the doors thereof, with gold; and graved cherubim on the walls.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 And he made the most holy place; the length thereof, according to the breadth of the house, was twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof twenty cubits; and he overlaid it with fine gold, amounting to six hundred talents.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 And the weight of the nails was fifty shekels of gold. And he overlaid the upper chambers with gold.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 And in the most holy place he made two cherubim of image work; and they overlaid them with gold.
'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 And the wings of the cherubim were twenty cubits long: the 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.
'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 And the 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.
'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 The wings of these cherubim spread themselves forth twenty cubits; and they stood on their feet, and their faces were inward.
'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 And he made the veil of blue, and purple, and crimson, and fine linen, and wrought cherubim thereon.
'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 Also he made before the house two pillars of thirty and five cubits high, and the capital that was on the top of each of them was five cubits.
'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 And he made chains in the Sanctuary, and put them on the tops of the pillars; and he made a hundred pomegranates, and put them on the chains.
'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 And he set 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.
