And the house, that is, the temple before (the oracle), was forty cubits (long).
And within the oracle was (a space of) twenty cubits in length, and twenty cubits in breadth, and twenty cubits in the height thereof; and he overlaid it with pure gold: and he covered the altar with cedar.
So Solomon overlaid the house within with pure gold: and he drew chains of gold across before the oracle; and he overlaid it with gold.
And the whole house he overlaid with gold, until all the house was finished: also the whole altar that belonged to the oracle he overlaid with gold.
And he carved all the walls of the house round about with carved figures of cherubim and palm-trees and open flowers, within and without.
And the floor of the house he overlaid with gold, within and without.
And for the entrance of the oracle he made doors of olive-wood: the lintel (and) door-posts were a fifth part (of the wall).
So (he made) two doors of olive-wood; and he carved upon them carvings of cherubim and palm-trees and open flowers, and overlaid them with gold; and he spread the gold upon the cherubim, and upon the palm-trees.
So also made he for the entrance of the temple door-posts of olive-wood, out of a fourth part (of the wall);
and two doors of fir-wood: the two leaves of the one door were folding, and the two leaves of the other door were folding.
And he carved (thereon) cherubim and palm-trees and open flowers; and he overlaid them with gold fitted upon the graven work.
