3 Then Solomon begann to build the Lord’s temple in Jerusalem on Mount Moriaho where the LordF had appeared to his father David, at the site David had prepared on the threshing floor of Ornan* the Jebusite. 2 He began to build on the second day of the second month in the fourth year of his reign. 3 These are Solomon’s foundationsH for building God’s temple: the lengthI was ninety feet,J and the width thirty feet.* 4 The portico, which was across the front extending across the width of the temple, was thirty feet wide; its height was thirty feet;L he overlaid its inner surface with pure gold. 5 The larger roomM he paneled with cypress wood, overlaid with fine gold, and decorated with palm trees and chains. 6 He adorned the temple with precious stones for beauty, and the gold was the gold of Parvaim. 7 He overlaid the temple—the beams, the thresholds, its walls and doors—with gold,p and he carved cherubim on the walls.q
8 Then he made the most holy place; its length corresponded to the width of the temple, 30 feet, and its width was 30 feet.r He overlaid it with forty-five thousand poundsN of fine gold. 9 The weight of the nails was twenty ouncesO of gold, and he overlaid the ceiling with gold.
10 He mades two cherubim of sculptured work, for the most holy place, and he overlaid them with gold. 11 The overall length of the wings of the cherubim was 30 feet: the wing of one was 7½ feet,* touching the wall of the room; its other wing was 7½ feet, touching the wing of the other cherub. 12 The wing of the otherQ cherub was 7½ feet, touching the wall of the room; its other wing was 7½ feet, reaching the wing of the other cherub. 13 The wingspan of these cherubim was 30 feet. They stood on their feet and faced the larger room.A
14 He made the curtain of blue, purple, and crimson yarn and fine linen, and he wove cherubim into it.a
15 In front of the templeb he made two pillars, each 27 feetB high. The capital on top of each was 7½ feet high. 16 He had made chainwork in the inner sanctuary and also put it on top of the pillars.c He made a hundred pomegranates and fastened them into the chainwork. 17 Then he set up the pillars in front of the sanctuary, one on the right and one on the left. He named the one on the right JachinC and the one on the left Boaz.D
About Christian Standard Bible
The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.
The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.
The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.
The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
