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

1 Reis 7:1-51

A Construção do Palácio de Salomão

1Salomão levou treze anos para terminar a construção do seu palácio. 2Ele construiu o Palácio da Floresta do Líbano com quarenta e cinco metros de comprimento, vinte e dois metros e meio de largura e treze metros e meio de altura7.2 Hebraico: 100 côvados de comprimento, 50 de largura e 30 de altura. O côvado era uma medida linear de cerca de 45 centímetros., sustentado por quatro fileiras de colunas de cedro sobre as quais apoiavam-se vigas de cedro aparelhadas. 3O forro, de cedro, ficava sobre as quarenta e cinco vigas, quinze por fileira, que se apoiavam nas colunas. 4Havia janelas dispostas de três em três, uma em frente da outra. 5Todas as portas tinham estrutura retangular; ficavam na parte da frente, dispostas de três em três, uma em frente da outra.

6Fez um pórtico de colunas de vinte e dois metros e meio de comprimento e treze metros e meio de largura. Em frente havia outro pórtico com colunas e uma cobertura que se estendia além das colunas.

7Construiu a Sala do Trono, isto é, a Sala da Justiça, onde iria julgar, e revestiu-a de cedro desde o chão até o teto7.7 Conforme a Vulgata e a Versão Siríaca. O Texto Massorético diz de cedro desde o chão.. 8E o palácio para sua moradia, no outro pátio, tinha um formato semelhante. Salomão fez também um palácio como esse para a filha do faraó, com quem tinha se casado.

9Todas essas construções, desde o lado externo até o grande pátio e do alicerce até o beiral, foram feitas de pedra de qualidade superior, cortadas sob medida e desbastadas com uma serra nos lados interno e externo. 10Os alicerces foram lançados com pedras grandes de qualidade superior, algumas medindo quatro metros e meio e outras três metros e sessenta centímetros. 11Na parte de cima havia pedras de qualidade superior, cortadas sob medida, e vigas de cedro. 12O grande pátio era cercado por um muro de três camadas de pedras lavradas e uma camada de vigas de cedro aparelhadas, da mesma maneira que o pátio interior do templo do Senhor, com o seu pórtico.

Os Utensílios do Templo

13O rei Salomão enviara mensageiros a Tiro e trouxera Hurão7.13 Hebraico: Hirão, variante de Hurão; também nos versículos 40 e 45., 14filho de uma viúva da tribo de Naftali e de um cidadão de Tiro, artífice em bronze. Hurão era extremamente hábil e experiente e sabia fazer todo tipo de trabalho em bronze. Apresentou-se ao rei Salomão e fez depois todo o trabalho que lhe foi designado.

15Ele fundiu duas colunas de bronze, cada uma com oito metros e dez centímetros de altura e cinco metros e quarenta centímetros de circunferência, medidas pelo fio apropriado. 16Também fez dois capitéis de bronze fundido para colocar no alto das colunas; cada capitel tinha dois metros e vinte e cinco centímetros de altura. 17Conjuntos de correntes entrelaçadas ornamentavam os capitéis no alto das colunas, sete em cada capitel. 18Fez também romãs em duas fileiras7.18 Muitos manuscritos dizem Fez as colunas, e havia duas fileiras. que circundavam cada conjunto de correntes para cobrir os capitéis no alto das colunas7.18 Muitos manuscritos dizem das romãs.. Fez o mesmo com cada capitel. 19Os capitéis no alto das colunas do pórtico tinham o formato de lírios, com um metro e oitenta centímetros de altura. 20Nos capitéis das duas colunas, acima da parte que tinha formato de taça, perto do conjunto de correntes, havia duzentas romãs enfileiradas ao redor. 21Ele levantou as colunas na frente do pórtico do templo. Deu o nome de Jaquim7.21 Jaquim provavelmente significa ele firma. à coluna ao sul e de Boaz7.21 Boaz provavelmente significa nele há força. à coluna ao norte. 22Os capitéis no alto tinham a forma de lírios. E assim completou-se o trabalho das colunas.

23Fez o tanque de metal fundido, redondo, medindo quatro metros e meio de diâmetro e dois metros e vinte e cinco centímetros de altura. Era preciso um fio de treze metros e meio para medir a sua circunferência. 24Abaixo da borda e ao seu redor havia duas fileiras de frutos, de cinco em cinco centímetros, fundidas numa só peça com o tanque.

25O tanque ficava sobre doze touros, três voltados para o norte, três para o oeste, três para o sul e três para o leste. Ficava em cima deles, e as pernas traseiras dos touros eram voltadas para o centro. 26A espessura do tanque era de quatro dedos, e sua borda era como a borda de um cálice, como uma flor de lírio. Sua capacidade era de quarenta mil litros7.26 Hebraico: 2.000 batos. O bato era uma medida de capacidade para líquidos. As estimativas variam entre 20 e 40 litros. A Septuaginta não traz esta frase..

27Também fez dez carrinhos de bronze; cada um tinha um metro e oitenta centímetros de comprimento e de largura, e um metro e trinta e cinco centímetros de altura. 28Os carrinhos eram feitos assim: tinham placas laterais presas a armações. 29Nas placas, entre as armações, havia figuras de leões, bois e querubins; sobre as armações, acima e abaixo dos leões e bois, havia grinaldas de metal batido. 30Em cada carrinho havia quatro rodas de bronze com eixos de bronze, cada um com uma bacia apoiada em quatro pés e fundida ao lado de cada grinalda. 31No lado de dentro do carrinho havia uma abertura circular com quarenta e cinco centímetros de profundidade. Essa abertura era redonda e, com sua base, media setenta centímetros. Havia esculturas em torno da abertura. As placas dos carrinhos eram quadradas, e não redondas. 32As quatro rodas ficavam sob as placas, e os eixos das rodas ficavam presos ao estrado. O diâmetro de cada roda era de setenta centímetros. 33As rodas eram feitas como rodas de carros; os eixos, os aros, os raios e os cubos eram todos de metal fundido.

34Havia quatro cabos que se projetavam do carrinho, um em cada canto. 35No alto do carrinho havia uma lâmina circular de vinte e dois centímetros de altura. Os apoios e as placas estavam fixados no alto do carrinho. 36Ele esculpiu figuras de querubins, leões e tamareiras na superfície dos apoios e nas placas, em cada espaço disponível, com grinaldas ao redor. 37Foi assim que fez os dez carrinhos. Foram todos fundidos nos mesmos moldes e eram idênticos no tamanho e na forma.

38Depois ele fez dez pias de bronze, cada uma com capacidade de oitocentos litros, medindo um metro e oitenta centímetros de diâmetro; uma pia para cada um dos dez carrinhos. 39Ele pôs cinco carrinhos no lado sul do templo e cinco no lado norte. Pôs o tanque no lado sul, no canto sudeste do templo. 40Também fez os jarros, as pás e as bacias para aspersão.

Assim, Hurão completou todo o trabalho de que fora encarregado pelo rei Salomão, no templo do Senhor:

41as duas colunas;

os dois capitéis em forma de taça no alto das colunas;

os dois conjuntos de correntes que decoravam os dois capitéis;

42as quatrocentas romãs para os dois conjuntos de correntes; duas fileiras de romãs para cada conjunto;

43os dez carrinhos com as suas dez pias;

44o tanque e os doze touros debaixo dele;

45e os jarros, as pás e as bacias de aspersão.

Todos esses utensílios que Hurão fez a pedido do rei Salomão para o templo do Senhor eram de bronze polido. 46Foi na planície do Jordão, entre Sucote e Zaretã, que o rei os mandou fundir, em moldes de barro. 47Salomão não mandou pesar esses utensílios; eram tantos que o peso do bronze não foi determinado.

48Além desses, Salomão mandou fazer também estes outros utensílios para o templo do Senhor:

O altar de ouro;

a mesa de ouro sobre a qual ficavam os pães da Presença;

49os candelabros de ouro puro, cinco à direita e cinco à esquerda, em frente do santuário interno;

as flores, as lâmpadas e as tenazes de ouro;

50as bacias, os cortadores de pavio, as bacias para aspersão, as tigelas e os incensários;

e as dobradiças de ouro para as portas da sala interna, isto é, o Lugar Santíssimo, e também para as portas do átrio principal.

51Terminada toda a obra que Salomão realizou para o templo do Senhor, ele trouxe tudo o que seu pai havia consagrado e colocou-o com os tesouros do templo do Senhor: a prata, o ouro e os utensílios.
