King James Version

1 Kings 6

1And 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.

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.

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.

And for the house he made windows of narrow lights.

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:

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.

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.

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.

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 ceiling: 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 floors 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.

列王紀上 6

建造聖殿

1所羅門在做以色列王的第四年二月,即西弗月,開始為耶和華建殿。那時正是以色列人離開埃及後第四百八十年。 所羅門王為耶和華建造的殿長二十七米,寬九米,高十三米半。 殿前的門廊和殿一樣寬九米,深四米半。 殿有精緻的窗戶。 靠殿牆、圍著外殿和內殿又造了三層廂房, 底層寬二點二五米,中層寬二點七米,上層寬三點一米。廂房的橫樑都搭在殿牆突出的地方,免得插入殿牆。 建殿的石頭都在採石場鑿好了,建殿的時候聽不到錘子、斧頭或其他鐵器的響聲。

底層廂房的進口在殿的南面,沿著一道螺旋樓梯可以通到第二層和第三層。 殿建成後,殿頂裝上香柏木的梁木和木板。 10 靠著殿牆所造的廂房每一層高二點二五米,用香柏木的梁木與殿牆接連起來。

耶和華的約

11 耶和華對所羅門說: 12 「關於你所建的這殿,若你遵行我的律例,順從我的典章,謹守我的一切誡命,我必實現我對你父親大衛的應許。 13 我必住在以色列人當中,不拋棄我的以色列子民。」

14 所羅門建造的殿落成了。 15 殿裡的牆壁和天花板都鋪上了香柏木,地面都鋪上了松木板。 16 在殿的後部,從地面至天花板用香柏木板隔出長九米的內殿,就是至聖所。 17 在至聖所外面是外殿,長十八米。 18 殿內全部鋪上香柏木,不露一點石頭,香柏木上刻著野瓜和花朵的圖案。 19 殿的至聖所用來安放耶和華的約櫃。 20 至聖所長、寬和高都是九米,裡面全貼上純金,香柏木造的祭壇也包上純金。 21 殿內全部貼上純金,至聖所前面有金鏈攔著。 22 殿內都貼上純金,至聖所內的祭壇也都包上純金。

23 至聖所裡面放著兩個橄欖木造的基路伯天使,各高四米半, 24 各有兩個二點二五米長的翅膀,雙翅展開,兩翅尖相距四點五米。 25 兩個基路伯的大小和形狀一模一樣, 26 高度都是四點五米。 27 他將兩個基路伯安在至聖所內,兩個基路伯展開翅膀,各有一個翅膀在至聖所的中央相接,另一個翅膀的尖端觸到牆壁。 28 這兩個基路伯天使也包上金。

29 內殿和外殿的牆壁都刻上基路伯天使、棕樹和花朵的圖案, 30 地板是鋪金的。 31 至聖所的門、門楣和門柱都是橄欖木造的,門柱呈五角形。 32 兩扇用橄欖木造的門上都刻著基路伯天使、棕樹和花朵的圖案,並包上金。 33 外殿的四角形門柱也是用橄欖木造的, 34 兩扇門是松木造的,每一扇門都分為可折疊的兩片, 35 上面刻著基路伯天使、棕樹和花朵的圖案,並包上金。 36 內院的牆是由三層鑿好的石頭和一層香柏木建的。

37 耶和華的殿在所羅門執政第四年的西弗月奠基, 38 在他執政的第十一年的布勒月,即八月全部按規格建成,歷經七年。
