1 And king Solomon sent, and took Chiram out of Tyre, 2 the son of a widow woman; and he [was] of the tribe of Nephthalim, and his father [was] a Tyrian; a worker in brass, and accomplished in art and skill and knowledge to work every work in brass: and he was brought in to king Solomon, and he wrought all the works. 3 And he cast the two pillars for the porch of the house: eighteen cubits [was] the height of [each] pillar, and a circumference of fourteen cubits encompassed it, even the thickness of the pillar: the flutings [were] four fingers [wide], and thus [was] the other pillar [formed]. 4 And he made two molten chapiters to put on the heads of the pillars: five cubits [was] the height of one chapiter, and five cubits [was] the height of the other chapiter 5 And he made two ornaments of net-work to cover the chapiters of the pillars; even a net for one chapiter, and a net for the other chapiter. 6 And hanging work, two rows of brazen pomegranates, formed with net-work, hanging work, row upon row: and thus he framed [the ornaments] for the second chapiter. 7 And he set up the pillars of the porch of the temple: and he set up the one pillar, and called its name Jachum: and he set up the second pillar, and called its name Baas. 8 And on the heads of the pillars he made lily-work against the porch, of four cubits, 9 and a chamber over both the pillars, and above the sides an addition [equal to] the chamber in width. 10 And he made the sea, ten cubits from one rim to the other, the same was completely circular round about: its height [was] five cubits, and its circumference thirty-three cubits. 11 And stays underneath its rim round about compassed it ten cubits round; 12 and its rim [was] as the work of the rim of a cup, a lily-flower, and the thickness of it [was] a span. 13 And [there were] twelve oxen under the sea: three looking to the north, and three looking to the west, and three looking to the south, and three looking to the east: and all their hinder parts [were] inward, and the sea [was] above upon them. 14 And he made ten brazen bases: five cubits [was] the length of one base, and four cubits the breadth of it, and its height [was] six cubits. 15 And this work of the bases [was] formed with a border and [there was] a border between the ledges. 16 And upon their borders between the projection [were] lions, and oxen, and cherubs: and on the projections, even so above, and also below [were] the places of lions and oxen, hanging work. 17 And [there were] four brazen wheels to one base; and [there were] brazen bases, and their four sides [answering to them], side pieces under the bases. 18 And [there were] axles in the wheels under the base. And the height of one wheel [was] a cubit and a half. 19 And the work of the wheels [was] as the work of chariot wheels: their axles, and their felloes, and [the rest of] their work, [were] all molten. 20 The four side pieces were at the four corners of each base; its shoulders [were formed] of the base. 21 And on the top of the base half a cubit [was] the size of it, [there was] a circle on the top of the base, and [there was] the top of its spaces and its borders: and it was open at the top of its spaces. 22 And its borders [were] cherubs, and lions, and palm-trees, upright, each [was] joined in front [and] within and round about. 23 According to the same form he made all the ten bases, [even] one order and one measure to all. 24 And he made ten brazen lavers, each laver containing forty baths, [and] measuring four cubits, each laver [placed] on a several base throughout the ten bases. 25 And he put five bases on the right side of the house, and five on the left side of the house: and the sea was placed on the right side of the house eastward in the direction of the south. 26 And Chiram made the caldrons, and the pans, and the bowls; and Chiram finished making all the works that he wrought for king Solomon in the house of the Lord: 27 two pillars and the wreathen works of the pillars on the heads of the two pillars; and the two net-works to cover both the wreathen works of the flutings that were upon the pillars. 28 The four hundred pomegranates for both the net-works, two rows of pomegranates for one net-work, to cover both the wreathen works of the bases belonging to both pillars. 29 And the ten bases, and the ten lavers upon the bases. 30 And one sea, and the twelve oxen under the sea. 31 And the caldrons, and pans, and bowls, and all the furniture, which Chiram made for king Solomon for the house of the Lord: and [there were] eight and forty pillars of the house of the king and of the house of the Lord: all the works of the king which Chiram made were entirely of brass. 32 There was no reckoning of the brass of which he made all these works, from the very great abundance, there was no end of the weight of the brass. 33 In the country round about Jordan did he cast them, in the clay land between Socchoth and Sira. 34 And king Solomon took the furniture which [Chiram] made for the house of the Lord, the golden altar, and the golden table of shewbread. 35 And [he put] the five candlesticks on the left, and five on the right in front of the oracle, [being] of pure gold, and the lamp-stands, and the lamps, and the snuffers of gold. 36 And [there were made] the porches, and the nails, and the bowls, and the spoons, and the golden censers, of pure gold: and the panels of the doors of the innermost part of the house, [even] the holy of holies, and the golden doors of the temple. 37 So the work of the house of the Lord which Solomon wrought was finished; and Solomon brought in the holy things of David his father, and all the holy things of Solomon; he put the silver, and the gold, and the furniture, into the treasures of the house of the Lord. 38 [See Appendix] And Solomon built a house for himself in thirteen years. 39 And he built the house with the wood of Libanus; its length [was] a hundred cubits, and its breadth [was] fifty cubits, and its height [was] of thirty cubits, and [it was made] with three rows of cedar pillars, and the pillars had side-pieces of cedar. 40 And he formed the house with chambers above on the sides of the pillars, and the number of the pillars [was each] row forty and five, 41 and [there were] three chambers, and space against space in three rows. 42 And all the doors and spaces formed like chambers [were] square, and from door to door [was a correspondence] in three rows. 43 And [he made] the porch of the pillars, [they were] fifty [cubits] long and fifty broad, the porch joining them in front; and the [other] pillars and the thick beam [were] in front of the house by the porches. 44 And [there was] the Porch of seats where he would judge, the porch of judgment. 45 And their house where he would dwell, [had] one court communicating with these according to this work; and [he built] the house for the daughter of Pharao whom Solomon had taken, according to this porch. 46 All these [were] of costly stones, sculptured at intervals within even from the foundation even to the top, and outward to the great court, 47 founded with large costly stones, stones of ten cubits and eight cubits [long]. 48 And above with costly stones, according to the measure of hewn stones, and with cedars. 49 [There were] three rows of hewn [stones] round about the great hall, and a row of sculptured cedar: and Solomon finished all his house. ΚΑΙ ἀπέστειλεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμὼν καὶ ἔλαβε τὸν Χιρὰμ ἐκ Τύρου, 2 υἱὸν γυναικὸς χήρας, καὶ οὗτος ἀπὸ τῆς φυλῆς τῆς Νεφθαλίμ, καὶ ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ ἀνὴρ Τύριος, τέκτων χαλκοῦ καὶ πεπληρωμένος τῆς τέχνης καὶ συνέσεως καὶ ἐπιγνώσεως τοῦ ποιεῖν πᾶν ἔργον ἐν χαλκῷ· καὶ εἰσηνέχθη πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα Σαλωμὼν καὶ ἐποίησε πάντα τὰ ἔργα. 3 καὶ ἐχώνευσε τοὺς δύο στήλους τῷ αἰλὰμ τοῦ οἴκου, ὀκτωκαίδεκα πήχεις ὕψος τοῦ στύλου, καὶ περίμετρον τεσσαρεσκαίδεκα πήχεις ἐκύκλου αὐτόν, καὶ τὸ πάχος τοῦ στύλου τεσσάρων δακτύλων τὰ κοιλώματα, καὶ οὕτως ὁ στῦλος ὁ δεύτερος. 4 καὶ δύο ἐπιθέματα ἐποίησε δοῦναι ἐπὶ τὰς κεφαλὰς τῶν στύλων, χωνευτὰ χαλκᾶ· πέντε πήχεις τὸ ὕψος τοῦ ἐπιθέματος τοῦ ἑνός, καὶ πέντε πήχεις τὸ ὕψος τοῦ ἐπιθέματος τοῦ δευτέρου. 5 καὶ ἐποίησε δύο δίκτυα περικαλύψαι τὸ ἐπίθεμα τῶν στύλων, καὶ δίκτυον τῷ ἐπιθέματι τῷ ἑνί, καὶ δίκτυον τῷ ἐπιθέματι τῷ δευτέρῳ. 6 καὶ ἔργον κρεμαστόν, δύο στίχοι ῥοῶν χαλκῶν δεδικτυωμένοι, ἔργον κρεμαστόν, στίχος ἐπὶ στίχον· καὶ οὕτως ἐποίησε τῷ ἐπιθέματι τῷ δευτέρῳ. 7 καὶ ἔστησε τοὺς στύλους τοῦ αἰλὰμ τοῦ ναοῦ· καὶ ἔστησε τὸν στῦλον τὸν ἕνα καὶ ἐπεκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ᾿Ιαχούμ· καὶ ἔστησε τὸν στῦλον τὸν δεύτερον καὶ ἐπεκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Βαάς. 8 καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν κεφαλῶν τῶν στύλων ἔργον κρίνου κατὰ τὸ αἰλὰμ τεσσάρων πηχῶν. 9 καὶ μέλαθρον ἐπ᾿ ἀμφοτέρων τῶν στύλων, καὶ ἐπάνωθεν τῶν πλευρῶν ἐπίθεμα τὸ μέλαθρον τῷ πάχει. 10 καὶ ἐποίησε τὴν θάλασσαν δέκα ἐν πήχει ἀπὸ τοῦ χείλους αὐτῆς ἕως τοῦ χείλους αὐτῆς, στρογγύλον κύκλῳ τὸ αὐτό· πέντε ἐν πήχει τὸ ὕψος αὐτῆς, καὶ συνηγμένοι τρεῖς καὶ τριάκοντα ἐν πήχει ἐκύκλουν αὐτήν. 11 καὶ ὑποστηρίγματα ὑποκάτωθεν τοῦ χείλους αὐτῆς κυκλόθεν ἐκύκλουν αὐτήν, δέκα ἐν πήχει κυκλόθεν 12 καὶ τὸ χεῖλος αὐτῆς ὡς ἔργον χείλους ποτηρίου, βλαστὸς κρίνου, καὶ τὸ πάχος αὐτοῦ παλαιστής. 13 καὶ δώδεκα βόες ὑποκάτω τῆς θαλάσσης, οἱ τρεῖς ἐπιβλέποντες βορρᾶν καὶ οἱ τρεῖς ἐπιβλέποντες θάλασσαν καὶ οἱ τρεῖς ἐπιβλέποντες νότον καὶ οἱ τρεῖς ἐπιβλέποντες ἀνατολήν, καὶ πάντα τὰ ὀπίσθια εἰς τὸν οἶκον, καὶ ἡ θάλασσα ἐπ᾿ αὐτῶν ἐπάνωθεν. 14 καὶ ἐποίησε δέκα μεχωνὼθ χαλκᾶς· πέντε πήχεις μῆκος τῆς μεχωνὼθ τῆς μιᾶς, καὶ τέσσαρες πήχεις τὸ πλάτος αὐτῆς, καὶ ἓξ ἐν πήχει τὸ ὕψος αὐτῆς. 15 καὶ τοῦτο τὸ ἔργον τῶν μεχωνὼθ συγκλειστὸν αὐτοῖς, καὶ συγκλειστὸν ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν ἐξεχομένων. 16 καὶ ἐπὶ τὰ συγκλείσματα αὐτῶν ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν ἐξεχομένων λέοντες καὶ βόες καὶ Χερουβίμ, καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν ἐξεχομένων οὕτως· καὶ ἐπάνωθεν καὶ ὑποκάτωθεν τῶν λεόντων καὶ τῶν βοῶν χῶραι, ἔργον καταβάσεως 17 καὶ τέσσαρες τροχοὶ χαλκοῖ τῇ μεχωνὼθ τῇ μιᾷ, καὶ τὰ προσέχοντα χαλκᾶ καὶ τέσσαρα μέρη αὐτῶν, ὠμίαι ὑποκάτω τῶν λουτήρων. 18 καὶ χεῖρες ἐν τοῖς τροχοῖς ἐν τῇ μεχωνώθ, καὶ τὸ ὕψος τοῦ τροχοῦ τοῦ ἑνὸς πήχεος καὶ ἡμίσους. 19 καὶ τὸ ἔργον τῶν τροχῶν ἔργον τροχῶν ἅρματος· αἱ χεῖρες αὐτῶν καὶ οἱ νῶτοι αὐτῶν καὶ ἡ πραγματεία αὐτῶν, τὰ πάντα χωνευτά. 20 αἱ τέσσαρες ὠμίαι ἐπὶ τῶν τεσσάρων γωνιῶν τῆς μεχωνὼθ τῆς μιᾶς, ἐκ τῆς μεχωνὼθ οἱ ὦμοι αὐτῆς. 21 καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς κεφαλῆς τῆς μεχωνὼθ ἥμισυ τοῦ πήχεος μέγεθος αὐτῆς στρογγύλον κύκλῳ ἐπὶ τῆς κεφαλῆς τῆς μεχωνώθ, καὶ ἀρχὴ χειρῶν αὐτῆς καὶ τὰ συγκλείσματα αὐτῆς, καὶ ἠνοίγετο ἐπὶ τὰς ἀρχὰς τῶν χειρῶν αὐτῆς. 22 καὶ τὰ συγκλείσματα αὐτῆς Χερουβὶμ καὶ λέοντες καὶ φοίνικες ἑστῶτα, ἐχόμενον ἕκαστον κατὰ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ ἔσω καὶ τὰ κυκλόθεν. 23 κατ᾿ αὐτὴν ἐποίησε πάσας τὰς δέκα μεχωνώθ, τάξιν μίαν καὶ μέτρον ἐν πάσαις. 24 καὶ ἐποίησε δέκα χυτροκαύλους χαλκοῦς, τεσσαράκοντα χοεῖς χωροῦντα τὸν ἕνα χυτρόκαυλον μετρήσει τεσσάρων πηχῶν· ὁ χυτρόκαυλος ὁ εἷς ἐπὶ τῆς μεχωνὼθ τῆς μιᾶς ταῖς δέκα μεχωνώθ. 25 καὶ ἔθετο τὰς πέντε μεχωνὼθ ἀπὸ τῆς ὠμίας τοῦ οἴκου ἐκ δεξιῶν καὶ πέντε ἀπὸ τῆς ὠμίας τοῦ οἴκου ἐξ ἀριστερῶν· καὶ ἡ θάλασσα ἀπὸ τῆς ὠμίας τοῦ οἴκου ἐκ δεξιῶν κατ᾿ ἀνατολὰς ἀπὸ τοῦ κλίτους τοῦ νότου. 26 καὶ ἐποίησε Χιρὰμ τοὺς λέβητας καὶ τὰς θερμάστρεις καὶ τὰς φιάλας, καὶ συνετέλεσε Χιρὰμ ποιῶν πάντα τὰ ἔργα, ἃ ἐποίησε τῷ βασιλεῖ Σαλωμὼν ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου, 27 στύλους δύο καὶ τὰ στρεπτὰ τῶν στύλων ἐπὶ τῶν κεφαλῶν τῶν στύλων δύο καὶ τὰ δίκτυα δύο τοῦ καλύπτειν ἀμφότερα τὰ στρεπτὰ τῶν γλυφῶν τὰ ὄντα ἐπὶ τῶν στύλων, 28 τὰς ροὰς τετρακοσίας ἀμφοτέροις τοῖς δικτύοις, δύο στίχοι ροῶν τῷ δικτύῳ τῷ ἑνὶ περικαλύπτειν ἀμφότερα τὰ ὄντα τὰ στρεπτὰ τῆς μεχωνὼθ ἐπ᾿ ἀμφοτέροις τοῖς στύλοις, 29 καὶ τὰ μεχωνὼθ δέκα καὶ τοὺς χυτροκαύλους δέκα ἐπὶ τῶν μεχωνὼθ 30 καὶ τὴν θάλασσαν μίαν καὶ τοὺς βόας δώδεκα ὑποκάτω τῆς θαλάσσης 31 καὶ τοὺς λέβητας καὶ τὰς θερμάστρεις καὶ τὰς φιάλας καὶ πάντα τὰ σκεύη, ἃ ἐποίησε Χιρὰμ τῷ βασιλεῖ Σαλωμὼν τῷ οἴκῳ Κυρίου· καὶ οἱ στῦλοι τεσσαράκοντα καὶ ὀκτὼ τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τοῦ οἴκου Κυρίου. πάντα τὰ ἔργα τοῦ βασιλέως, ἃ ἐποίησε Χιράμ, χαλκᾶ ἄρδην· 32 οὐκ ἦν σταθμὸς τοῦ χαλκοῦ, οὗ ἐποίησε πάντα τὰ ἔργα ταῦτα, ἐκ πλήθους σφόδρα· οὐκ ἦν τέρμα τῶν σταθμῶν τοῦ χαλκοῦ. 33 ἐν τῷ περιοίκῳ τοῦ ᾿Ιορδάνου ἐχώνευσεν αὐτὰ ἐν τῷ πάχει τῆς γῆς ἀνὰ μέσον Σοκχὼθ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον Σειρά. 34 καὶ ἔδωκεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμὼν τὰ σκεύη, ἃ ἐποίησεν, ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου, τὸ θυσιαστήριον τὸ χρυσοῦν καὶ τὴν τράπεζαν, ἐφ᾿ ἧς οἱ ἄρτοι τῆς προσφορᾶς, χρυσῆν, 35 καὶ τὰς λυχνίας πέντε ἐξ ἀριστερῶν καὶ πέντε ἐκ δεξιῶν κατὰ πρόσωπον τοῦ δαβίρ, χρυσᾶς συγκλειομένας, καὶ τὰ λαμπάδια καὶ τοὺς λύχνους καὶ τὰς ἐπαρυστρίδας χρυσᾶς 36 καὶ τὰ πρόθυρα καὶ οἱ ἧλοι καὶ αἱ φιάλαι καὶ τὰ τρυβλία καὶ αἱ θυΐσκαι χρυσαῖ, σύγκλειστα, καὶ τὰ θυρώματα τῶν θυρῶν τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ ἐσωτάτου, ἁγίου τῶν ἁγίων, καὶ τὰς θύρας τοῦ ναοῦ χρυσᾶς. 37 καὶ ἀνεπληρώθη πᾶν τὸ ἔργον, ὃ ἐποίησε Σαλωμὼν οἴκου Κυρίου, καὶ εἰσήνεγκε Σαλωμὼν τὰ ἅγια Δαυὶδ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντα τὰ ἅγια Σαλωμών, τὸ ἀργύριον καὶ τὸ χρυσίον καὶ τὰ σκεύη, ἔδωκεν εἰς τοὺς θησαυροὺς οἴκου Κυρίου. 38 Καὶ τὸν οἶκον ἑαυτῷ ᾠκοδόμησε Σαλωμὼν τρισκαίδεκα ἔτεσι. 39 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησε τὸν οἶκον δρυμῷ τοῦ Λιβάνου· ἑκατὸν πήχεις μῆκος αὐτοῦ, καὶ πεντήκοντα πήχεις πλάτος αὐτοῦ, καὶ τριάκοντα πηχῶν ὕψος αὐτοῦ· καὶ τριῶν στίχων στύλων κεδρίνων, καὶ ὠμίαι κέδριναι τοῖς στύλοις. 40 καὶ ἐφάτνωσε τὸν οἶκον ἄνωθεν ἐπὶ τῶν πλευρῶν τῶν στύλων, καὶ ὁ ἀριθμὸς τῶν στύλων τεσσαράκοντα καὶ πέντε ὁ στίχος· 41 καὶ μέλαθρα τρία καὶ χώρα ἐπὶ χώραν τρισσῶς· 42 καὶ πάντα τὰ θυρώματα καὶ αἱ χῶραι τετράγωνοι μεμελαθρωμέναι καὶ ἀπὸ τοῦ θυρώματος ἐπὶ θύραν τρισσῶς. 43 καὶ τὸ αἰλὰμ τῶν στύλων πεντήκοντα μῆκος καὶ πεντήκοντα ἐν πλάτει, ἐζυγωμένα, αἰλὰμ ἐπὶ πρόσωπον αὐτῶν, καὶ στῦλοι καὶ πάχος ἐπὶ πρόσωπον αὐτῆς τοῖς αἰλαμμίμ. 44 καὶ τὸ αἰλὰμ τῶν θρόνων, οὗ κρινεῖ ἐκεῖ, αἰλὰμ τοῦ κριτηρίου. 45 καὶ ὁ οἶκος αὐτῶν, ἐν ᾧ καθήσεται ἐκεῖ, αὐλὴ μία ἐξελισσομένη τούτοις κατὰ τὸ ἔργον τοῦτο· καὶ οἶκον τῇ θυγατρὶ Φαραώ, ἣν ἔλαβε Σαλωμών, κατὰ τὸ αἰλὰμ τοῦτο. 46 πάντα ταῦτα ἐκ λίθων τιμίων κεκολαμμένα ἐκ διαστήματος ἔσωθεν καὶ ἐκ τοῦ θεμελίου ἕως τῶν γεισῶν καὶ ἔξωθεν εἰς τὴν αὐλὴν τὴν μεγάλην 47 τὴν τεθεμελιωμένην ἐν τιμίοις λίθοις μεγάλοις, λίθοις δεκαπήχεσι καὶ τοῖς ὀκταπήχεσι, 48 καὶ ἐπάνωθεν τιμίοις κατὰ τὸ μέτρον ἀπελεκήτων καὶ κέδροις. 49 τῆς αὐλῆς τῆς μεγάλης κύκλῳ τρεῖς στίχοι ἀπελεκήτων καὶ στίχος κεκολαμμένης κέδρου. καὶ συνετέλεσε Σαλωμὼν ὅλον τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ.
