1Kings 6:1 And 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..(when was this?)

1Kings 6:2-4 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.

1Kings 6:5 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.

1Kings 6:6-18 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. And then he built chambers against all the house, five cubits high and they rested on the house with timber of cedar. And the word of the LORD came to Solomon, saying, Concerning this house which you are in building, if you will walk in my statutes and execute my judgments and keep all my commandments to walk in them, then will I perform my word with you, which I spake unto David thy father. And I will dwell among the children of Israel and will not forsake my people Israel. So Solomon built the house and finished it. 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. 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. And the house, that is, the temple before it, was forty cubits long. And the cedar of the house within was carved with knops.(an ornament resembling a small gourd or an egg, on the cedar wainscot in the temple and on the castings on the brim of the brazen or molten sea).and open flowers. All was cedar. There was no stone seen.

1Kings 6:19-23 And the oracle he prepared in the house within, to set there the ark of the covenant of the LORD. 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. 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. 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. And within the oracle he made two cherubims of olive tree, each ten cubits high.

1Kings 6:38 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.

1Kings 7:1-6 But Solomon was building his own house thirteen years and he finished all his house. 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. And it was covered with cedar above upon the beams, that lay on forty five pillars, fifteen in a row. And there were windows in three rows and light was against light in three ranks. (occurrences or rows of window).And all the doors and posts were square with the windows, where light was against light in three ranks. 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.

1Kings 7:7 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.

1Kings 7:8 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.

1Kings 7:9-12 All 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. And the foundation was of costly stones, even great stones, stones of ten cubits and stones of eight cubits. And above were costly stones, after the measures of hewed stones and cedars. And 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.

1Kings 7:15,16 For he cast two pillars of brass, of eighteen cubits high apiece and a line of twelve cubits did compass either of them about. And he made two chapiters.(the ornamental head or capital of a pillar).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.

1Kings 7:23 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.

1Kings 7:26 And it was an handbreadth thick and the brim thereof was wrought like the brim of a cup, with flowers of lilies. It contained two thousand baths.(original here says two thousand, but original word is a limited word here and means 'thousand'; original is expanded in 2Chronicles 4:5, where it properly states three thousand)

1Kings 7:46 In the plain of Jordan did the king cast them, in the clay ground between Succoth and Zarthan.
