2 He built the House of the Forest of Lebanon, a hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide, and thirty cubits high, on four rows of cedar-wood pillars,
1Kgs 10:17 2Chr 9:16 1Kgs 9:19 1Kgs 10:21 Song 7:4
3 with lengths of cedar wood laid horizontally on the pillars. The upper part was panelled with cedar right down to the tie-beams on forty-five pillars, fifteen in each row.
4 There were three rows of window-frames, with the windows corresponding to one another at three levels.
1Kgs 6:4 1Kgs 7:5 Ezek 40:16 Ezek 40:22 Ezek 40:25 Ezek 40:29 Ezek 40:33
5 All the doorways and windows were rectangular, with the windows corresponding to one another at three levels.
6 He also made the Colonnade, fifty cubits long and thirty cubits broad, with a cornice in front.
1Kgs 7:12 Ezek 41:25-26
7 He also made the Hall of the Throne where he used to dispense justice, that is, the Hall of Justice; it was panelled in cedar from floor to beams.

8 His own living quarters, in the other court and inwards from the Hall, were of the same construction. And there was a house similar to this Hall for Pharaoh's daughter whom he had taken in marriage.
1Kgs 3:1 2Chr 8:11 1Kgs 9:24 2Kgs 20:4
9 All these buildings were of special stones cut to measure, trimmed on the inner and outer sides with the saw, from the foundations to the coping-

13 King Solomon sent for Hiram of Tyre;
2Chr 4:11 1Kgs 7:40 2Chr 2:13-14
14 he was the son of a widow of the tribe of Naphtali, but his father had been a Tyrian, a bronzeworker. He was a highly intelligent craftsman, skilled in all types of bronzework. He came to King Solomon and did all this work for him.

2Chr 4:12-13 Exod 36:38 Exod 38:17 Exod 38:19 Exod 38:28

2Chr 3:17 1Kgs 6:3 1Kgs 7:12 2Sam 7:12 Ezek 40:48-49 Gal 2:9 Isa 9:7
22 Thus, the work on the pillars was completed.
23 He made the Sea of cast metal, ten cubits from rim to rim, circular in shape and five cubits high; a cord thirty cubits long gave the measurement of its girth.
2Kgs 25:13 2Chr 4:2 Jer 52:17 1Chr 18:8 Exod 30:18-21 Exod 38:8 Jer 52:20
24 Under its rim and completely encircling it were gourds surrounding the Sea; over a length of thirty cubits the gourds were in two rows, of one and the same casting with the rest.
1Kgs 6:18 2Chr 4:3 Exod 25:31-36 Exod 37:17-22

Jer 52:20 2Chr 4:4-5 1Cor 9:9 Ezek 1:10 Luke 24:47 Mark 16:15-16 Matt 28:19
26 It was a hand's breadth in thickness, and its rim was shaped like the rim of a cup, lily-shaped. It could hold two thousand measures.

27 He made the ten bronze stands; each stand was four cubits long, four cubits wide, and three high.
2Chr 4:14 2Kgs 25:13 Jer 52:17 1Kgs 7:38 2Kgs 25:16 Jer 52:20
28 They were designed as follows; they had an undercarriage and crosspieces to the undercarriage.
29 On the crosspieces of the undercarriage were lions and bulls and winged creatures, and on top of the undercarriage was a support; under the lions and oxen there were scrolls in the style of. . .
1Kgs 6:27 1Kgs 7:25 1Pet 2:5 Exod 25:18 Exod 37:7 Ezek 1:10 Ezek 10:14
30 Each stand had four bronze wheels with bronze axles; its four feet had shoulderings under the basin, and the shoulderings were cast. . .
Ezek 1:15-21 Ezek 3:13 Ezek 10:10-13
31 Its mouth measured one and a half cubits from where the shoulderings met to the top; its mouth was round like a stand for a vessel, and on the mouth there were engravings too; the crosspieces, however, were rectangular and not round.
32 The four wheels were under the crosspieces. The axles of the wheels were inside the stands; the height of the wheels was one and a half cubits.
33 The wheels were designed like chariot wheels: their axles, felloes, spokes and naves had all been cast.
Ezek 1:16 Ezek 1:18
34 There were four shoulderings at the four corners of each stand: the stand and the shoulderings were all of a piece.
35 At the top of the stand there was a support, circular in shape and half a cubit high; and on top of the stand there were lugs. The crosspieces were of a piece with the stand.

Josh 3:16 2Chr 4:17 Gen 33:17 Josh 13:27 1Kgs 4:12
47 There were so many of them, that the weight of the bronze was never calculated.
1Chr 22:14 1Chr 22:3 1Chr 22:16 2Chr 4:18
48 Solomon made all the objects designed for the Temple of Yahweh: the golden altar and the gold table for the loaves of permanent offering;
