King James Version

1 Kings 7:1-51

1But Solomon was building his own house thirteen years, and he finished all his house.

2¶ He built also the house of the forest of Lebanon; the length thereof was an hundred cubits, and the breadth thereof fifty cubits, and the height thereof thirty cubits, upon four rows of cedar pillars, with cedar beams upon the pillars. 3And it was covered with cedar above upon the beams, that lay on forty five pillars, fifteen in a row.7.3 beams: Heb. ribs 4And there were windows in three rows, and light was against light in three ranks.7.4 light was…: Heb. sight against sight 5And all the doors and posts were square, with the windows: and light was against light in three ranks.7.5 doors…: or, spaces and pillars were square in prospect

6¶ And he made a porch of pillars; the length thereof was fifty cubits, and the breadth thereof thirty cubits: and the porch was before them: and the other pillars and the thick beam were before them.7.6 before them: or, according to them

7¶ Then he made a porch for the throne where he might judge, even the porch of judgment: and it was covered with cedar from one side of the floor to the other.7.7 from…: Heb. from floor to floor

8¶ And his house where he dwelt had another court within the porch, which was of the like work. Solomon made also an house for Pharaoh’s daughter, whom he had taken to wife, like unto this porch. 9All these were of costly stones, according to the measures of hewed stones, sawed with saws, within and without, even from the foundation unto the coping, and so on the outside toward the great court. 10And the foundation was of costly stones, even great stones, stones of ten cubits, and stones of eight cubits. 11And above were costly stones, after the measures of hewed stones, and cedars. 12And the great court round about was with three rows of hewed stones, and a row of cedar beams, both for the inner court of the house of the LORD, and for the porch of the house.

13¶ And king Solomon sent and fetched Hiram out of Tyre.7.13 Hiram: also called, Huram 14He was a widow’s son of the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man of Tyre, a worker in brass: and he was filled with wisdom, and understanding, and cunning to work all works in brass. And he came to king Solomon, and wrought all his work.7.14 a widow’s…: Heb. the son of a widow woman 15For he cast two pillars of brass, of eighteen cubits high apiece: and a line of twelve cubits did compass either of them about.7.15 cast: Heb. fashioned 16And he made two chapiters of molten brass, to set upon the tops of the pillars: the height of the one chapiter was five cubits, and the height of the other chapiter was five cubits: 17And nets of checker work, and wreaths of chain work, for the chapiters which were upon the top of the pillars; seven for the one chapiter, and seven for the other chapiter. 18And he made the pillars, and two rows round about upon the one network, to cover the chapiters that were upon the top, with pomegranates: and so did he for the other chapiter. 19And the chapiters that were upon the top of the pillars were of lily work in the porch, four cubits. 20And the chapiters upon the two pillars had pomegranates also above, over against the belly which was by the network: and the pomegranates were two hundred in rows round about upon the other chapiter. 21And he set up the pillars in the porch of the temple: and he set up the right pillar, and called the name thereof Jachin: and he set up the left pillar, and called the name thereof Boaz.7.21 Jachin: that is, He shall establish7.21 Boaz: that is, In it is strength 22And upon the top of the pillars was lily work: so was the work of the pillars finished.

23¶ And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.7.23 from…: Heb. from his brim to his brim 24And under the brim of it round about there were knops compassing it, ten in a cubit, compassing the sea round about: the knops were cast in two rows, when it was cast. 25It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking toward the north, and three looking toward the west, and three looking toward the south, and three looking toward the east: and the sea was set above upon them, and all their hinder parts were inward. 26And it was an hand breadth thick, and the brim thereof was wrought like the brim of a cup, with flowers of lilies: it contained two thousand baths.

27¶ And he made ten bases of brass; four cubits was the length of one base, and four cubits the breadth thereof, and three cubits the height of it. 28And the work of the bases was on this manner: they had borders, and the borders were between the ledges: 29And on the borders that were between the ledges were lions, oxen, and cherubims: and upon the ledges there was a base above: and beneath the lions and oxen were certain additions made of thin work. 30And every base had four brasen wheels, and plates of brass: and the four corners thereof had undersetters: under the laver were undersetters molten, at the side of every addition. 31And the mouth of it within the chapiter and above was a cubit: but the mouth thereof was round after the work of the base, a cubit and an half: and also upon the mouth of it were gravings with their borders, foursquare, not round. 32And under the borders were four wheels; and the axletrees of the wheels were joined to the base: and the height of a wheel was a cubit and half a cubit.7.32 joined…: Heb. in the base 33And the work of the wheels was like the work of a chariot wheel: their axletrees, and their naves, and their felloes, and their spokes, were all molten. 34And there were four undersetters to the four corners of one base: and the undersetters were of the very base itself. 35And in the top of the base was there a round compass of half a cubit high: and on the top of the base the ledges thereof and the borders thereof were of the same. 36For on the plates of the ledges thereof, and on the borders thereof, he graved cherubims, lions, and palm trees, according to the proportion of every one, and additions round about.7.36 proportion: Heb. nakedness 37After this manner he made the ten bases: all of them had one casting, one measure, and one size.

38¶ Then made he ten lavers of brass: one laver contained forty baths: and every laver was four cubits: and upon every one of the ten bases one laver. 39And he put five bases on the right side of the house, and five on the left side of the house: and he set the sea on the right side of the house eastward over against the south.7.39 side: Heb. shoulder

40¶ And Hiram made the lavers, and the shovels, and the basons. So Hiram made an end of doing all the work that he made king Solomon for the house of the LORD:7.40 And Hiram: Heb. And Hirom 41The two pillars, and the two bowls of the chapiters that were on the top of the two pillars; and the two networks, to cover the two bowls of the chapiters which were upon the top of the pillars; 42And four hundred pomegranates for the two networks, even two rows of pomegranates for one network, to cover the two bowls of the chapiters that were upon the pillars;7.42 upon…: Heb. upon the face of the pillars 43And the ten bases, and ten lavers on the bases; 44And one sea, and twelve oxen under the sea; 45And the pots, and the shovels, and the basons: and all these vessels, which Hiram made to king Solomon for the house of the LORD, were of bright brass.7.45 bright: Heb. made bright or, scoured 46In the plain of Jordan did the king cast them, in the clay ground between Succoth and Zarthan.7.46 in…: Heb. in the thickness of the ground 47And Solomon left all the vessels unweighed, because they were exceeding many: neither was the weight of the brass found out.7.47 because…: Heb. for the exceeding multitude7.47 found: Heb. searched

48And Solomon made all the vessels that pertained unto the house of the LORD: the altar of gold, and the table of gold, whereupon the shewbread was, 49And the candlesticks of pure gold, five on the right side, and five on the left, before the oracle, with the flowers, and the lamps, and the tongs of gold, 50And the bowls, and the snuffers, and the basons, and the spoons, and the censers of pure gold; and the hinges of gold, both for the doors of the inner house, the most holy place, and for the doors of the house, to wit, of the temple.7.50 censers: Heb. ash pans 51So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the LORD. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the LORD.7.51 things…: Heb. holy things of David

Emivule gyavanga Lebanooni, obuwanvu mita amakumi ana mu mukaaga, n’obugazi mita amakumi abiri mu ssatu, n’obugulumivu mita kkumi na ssatu n’ekitundu, nga luwaniriddwa ku mpagi nnya ez’emivule. 3Ne luserekebwa n’emivule ku mikiikiro amakumi ana mu etaano, buli lunyiriri nga lulimu kkumi na ttaano. 4Waaliwo amadirisa agaateekebwa mu nnyiriri ssatu, buli limu nga litunuulidde linnaalyo. 5Buli mulyango gwalina omwango nga gwa nsonda nnya, era nga gitunuuliraganye mu nnyiriri ssatu.

Kiramu yali musajja mugezi, mumanyirivu nnyo era ng’ategeera emirimu egy’ebyebikomo egya buli ngeri. N’agenda eri Kabaka Sulemaani, n’akola emirimu gyonna egya muweebwa. 157:15 2Bk 25:17; 2By 3:15; 4:12; Yer 52:17, 21Kiramu n’akola empagi bbiri ez’ekikomo, buli emu obuwanvu mita munaana n’akatundu kamu, n’okwetooloola buli emu mita ttaano n’obutundu buna. 167:16 2Bk 25:17Waggulu wa buli mpagi n’assaako ebitikkiro ebyalina ebitimba eby’omulimu ogw’ekikomo, n’emigo egy’omulimu ogw’emikuufu egyalukibwa. 17N’akola empagi zombi n’ebitikkiro byakwo nga zitimbiddwa buli emu ng’erina ebiruke ng’amalanga ag’amakomamawanga, musanvu. 18Ebitikkiro ebyali ku mpagi ez’olubalaza zakolebwa ng’amalanga ag’ebimuli eby’amakomamawanga. 19Ebitikkiro eby’empagi byali ng’amalanga nga ziri mita emu n’obutundu munaana obugulumivu. 207:20 2By 3:16; 4:13; Yer 52:23Ku buli nkufiira ey’empagi kwaliko ekifaanana ng’ebakuli okuliraana n’omulimu ogufaanana ng’ekintu ekiruke, era waaliwo amakomamawanga ebikumi bibiri mu mbu okwetooloola ebitikkiro ebyo. 217:21 1Bk 6:3; 2By 3:17N’akola empagi bbiri ku lubalaza lwa yeekaalu, emu n’agizimba ku luuyi olw’obukiikaddyo n’agituuma Yakini, n’eyokubiri n’agizimba ku luuyi olw’obukiikakkono n’agituuma Bowaazi. 22Ebitikkiro byabyo byakolebwako ebimuli eby’amalanga, era bwe gutyo omulimu ogw’okuzimba empagi ne guggwa.

Obwekulungirivu bwali mita kkumi na ssatu n’ekitundu. 24Wansi w’omugo gwayo kwaliko entaabwa okugyetooloola, kkumi buli butundu busatu obwa mita, era nga ziri embu bbiri, ezasaanuusibwa nayo.

Ku kamwa kaagwo kwaliko enjola, n’enkulumbi zaakyo nga si nnekulungirivu naye ng’enjuyi zonna zenkanankana. 32Nnamuziga ennya zaali wansi w’enkulumbi; n’emisingi gya nnamuziga gyali gikomereddwa ku kitebe. Okusala mu bukiika bwa nnamuziga emu bwali obutundu musanvu obwa mita. 33Nnamuziga zaakolebwa nga nnamuziga ez’amagaali, era kwaliko emisingi, n’empanka, n’empagi, n’emisumaali nga byonna by’akolebwa mu kyuma ekisaanuuse.

Byonna yabikola mu kyuma ekisaanuuse kyekimu, era n’abikola byonna nga bya kigero kyekimu, n’okufaanana nga bifaanana.
