1 Kings chapter 7

1
It took Solomon thirteen years, however, to complete the construction of his palace.
2
He built the Palace of the Forest of Lebanon a hundred cubits long, fifty wide and thirty high, with four rows of cedar columns supporting trimmed cedar beams.
3
It was roofed with cedar above the beams that rested on the columns-- forty-five beams, fifteen to a row.
4
Its windows were placed high in sets of three, facing each other.
5
All the doorways had rectangular frames; they were in the front part in sets of three, facing each other.
6
He made a colonnade fifty cubits long and thirty wide. In front of it was a portico, and in front of that were pillars and an overhanging roof.
7
He built the throne hall, the Hall of Justice, where he was to judge, and he covered it with cedar from floor to ceiling.
8
And the palace in which he was to live, set farther back, was similar in design. Solomon also made a palace like this hall for Pharaoh's daughter, whom he had married.
9
All these structures, from the outside to the great courtyard and from foundation to eaves, were made of blocks of high-grade stone cut to size and trimmed with a saw on their inner and outer faces.
10
The foundations were laid with large stones of good quality, some measuring ten cubits and some eight.
11
Above were high-grade stones, cut to size, and cedar beams.
12
The great courtyard was surrounded by a wall of three courses of dressed stone and one course of trimmed cedar beams, as was the inner courtyard of the temple of the LORD with its portico.
13
King Solomon sent to Tyre and brought Huram,
14
whose mother was a widow from the tribe of Naphtali and whose father was a man of Tyre and a craftsman in bronze. Huram was highly skilled and experienced in all kinds of bronze work. He came to King Solomon and did all the work assigned to him.
15
He cast two bronze pillars, each eighteen cubits high and twelve cubits around, by line.
16
He also made two capitals of cast bronze to set on the tops of the pillars; each capital was five cubits high.
17
A network of interwoven chains festooned the capitals on top of the pillars, seven for each capital.
18
He made pomegranates in two rows encircling each network to decorate the capitals on top of the pillars. He did the same for each capital.
19
The capitals on top of the pillars in the portico were in the shape of lilies, four cubits high.
20
On the capitals of both pillars, above the bowl-shaped part next to the network, were the two hundred pomegranates in rows all around.
21
He erected the pillars at the portico of the temple. The pillar to the south he named Jakin and the one to the north Boaz.
22
The capitals on top were in the shape of lilies. And so the work on the pillars was completed.
23
He made the Sea of cast metal, circular in shape, measuring ten cubits from rim to rim and five cubits high. It took a line of thirty cubits to measure around it.
24
Below the rim, gourds encircled it-- ten to a cubit. The gourds were cast in two rows in one piece with the Sea.
25
The Sea stood on twelve bulls, three facing north, three facing west, three facing south and three facing east. The Sea rested on top of them, and their hindquarters were toward the center.
26
It was a handbreadth in thickness, and its rim was like the rim of a cup, like a lily blossom. It held two thousand baths.
27
He also made ten movable stands of bronze; each was four cubits long, four wide and three high.
28
This is how the stands were made: They had side panels attached to uprights.
29
On the panels between the uprights were lions, bulls and cherubim-- and on the uprights as well. Above and below the lions and bulls were wreaths of hammered work.
30
Each stand had four bronze wheels with bronze axles, and each had a basin resting on four supports, cast with wreaths on each side.
31
On the inside of the stand there was an opening that had a circular frame one cubit deep. This opening was round, and with its basework it measured a cubit and a half. Around its opening there was engraving. The panels of the stands were square, not round.
32
The four wheels were under the panels, and the axles of the wheels were attached to the stand. The diameter of each wheel was a cubit and a half.
33
The wheels were made like chariot wheels; the axles, rims, spokes and hubs were all of cast metal.
34
Each stand had four handles, one on each corner, projecting from the stand.
35
At the top of the stand there was a circular band half a cubit deep. The supports and panels were attached to the top of the stand.
36
He engraved cherubim, lions and palm trees on the surfaces of the supports and on the panels, in every available space, with wreaths all around.
37
This is the way he made the ten stands. They were all cast in the same molds and were identical in size and shape.
38
He then made ten bronze basins, each holding forty baths and measuring four cubits across, one basin to go on each of the ten stands.
39
He placed five of the stands on the south side of the temple and five on the north. He placed the Sea on the south side, at the southeast corner of the temple.
40
He also made the basins and shovels and sprinkling bowls. So Huram finished all the work he had undertaken for King Solomon in the temple of the LORD:
41
the two pillars; the two bowl-shaped capitals on top of the pillars; the two sets of network decorating the two bowl-shaped capitals on top of the pillars;
42
the four hundred pomegranates for the two sets of network (two rows of pomegranates for each network, decorating the bowl-shaped capitals on top of the pillars);
43
the ten stands with their ten basins;
44
the Sea and the twelve bulls under it;
45
the pots, shovels and sprinkling bowls. All these objects that Huram made for King Solomon for the temple of the LORD were of burnished bronze.
46
The king had them cast in clay molds in the plain of the Jordan between Succoth and Zarethan.
47
Solomon left all these things unweighed, because there were so many; the weight of the bronze was not determined.
48
Solomon also made all the furnishings that were in the LORD's temple: the golden altar; the golden table on which was the bread of the Presence;
49
the lampstands of pure gold (five on the right and five on the left, in front of the inner sanctuary); the gold floral work and lamps and tongs;
50
the pure gold basins, wick trimmers, sprinkling bowls, dishes and censers; and the gold sockets for the doors of the innermost room, the Most Holy Place, and also for the doors of the main hall of the temple.
51
When all the work King Solomon had done for the temple of the LORD was finished, he brought in the things his father David had dedicated-- the silver and gold and the furnishings-- and he placed them in the treasuries of the LORD's temple.

2 Chronicles chapter 4

1
He made a bronze altar twenty cubits long, twenty cubits wide and ten cubits high.
2
He made the Sea of cast metal, circular in shape, measuring ten cubits from rim to rim and five cubits high. It took a line of thirty cubits to measure around it.
3
Below the rim, figures of bulls encircled it-- ten to a cubit. The bulls were cast in two rows in one piece with the Sea.
4
The Sea stood on twelve bulls, three facing north, three facing west, three facing south and three facing east. The Sea rested on top of them, and their hindquarters were toward the center.
5
It was a handbreadth in thickness, and its rim was like the rim of a cup, like a lily blossom. It held three thousand baths.
6
He then made ten basins for washing and placed five on the south side and five on the north. In them the things to be used for the burnt offerings were rinsed, but the Sea was to be used by the priests for washing.
7
He made ten gold lampstands according to the specifications for them and placed them in the temple, five on the south side and five on the north.
8
He made ten tables and placed them in the temple, five on the south side and five on the north. He also made a hundred gold sprinkling bowls.
9
He made the courtyard of the priests, and the large court and the doors for the court, and overlaid the doors with bronze.
10
He placed the Sea on the south side, at the southeast corner.
11
He also made the pots and shovels and sprinkling bowls. So Huram finished the work he had undertaken for King Solomon in the temple of God:
12
the two pillars; the two bowl-shaped capitals on top of the pillars; the two sets of network decorating the two bowl-shaped capitals on top of the pillars;
13
the four hundred pomegranates for the two sets of network (two rows of pomegranates for each network, decorating the bowl-shaped capitals on top of the pillars);
14
the stands with their basins;
15
the Sea and the twelve bulls under it;
16
the pots, shovels, meat forks and all related articles. All the objects that Huram-Abi made for King Solomon for the temple of the LORD were of polished bronze.
17
The king had them cast in clay molds in the plain of the Jordan between Succoth and Zarethan.
18
All these things that Solomon made amounted to so much that the weight of the bronze was not determined.
19
Solomon also made all the furnishings that were in God's temple: the golden altar; the tables on which was the bread of the Presence;
20
the lampstands of pure gold with their lamps, to burn in front of the inner sanctuary as prescribed;
21
the gold floral work and lamps and tongs (they were solid gold);
22
the pure gold wick trimmers, sprinkling bowls, dishes and censers; and the gold doors of the temple: the inner doors to the Most Holy Place and the doors of the main hall.

Psalm chapter 98

1
A psalm. Sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things; his right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him.
2
The LORD has made his salvation known and revealed his righteousness to the nations.
3
He has remembered his love and his faithfulness to the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
4
Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music;
5
make music to the LORD with the harp, with the harp and the sound of singing,
6
with trumpets and the blast of the ram's horn-- shout for joy before the LORD, the King.
7
Let the sea resound, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.
8
Let the rivers clap their hands, let the mountains sing together for joy;
9
let them sing before the LORD, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples with equity.

Romans chapter 2

1
You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things.
2
Now we know that God's judgment against those who do such things is based on truth.
3
So when you, a mere man, pass judgment on them and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God's judgment?
4
Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, tolerance and patience, not realizing that God's kindness leads you toward repentance?
5
But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God's wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed.
6
God "will give to each person according to what he has done."
7
To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life.
8
But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger.
9
There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile;
10
but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.
11
For God does not show favoritism.
12
All who sin apart from the law will also perish apart from the law, and all who sin under the law will be judged by the law.
13
For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God's sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous.
14
(Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law,
15
since they show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts now accusing, now even defending them.)
16
This will take place on the day when God will judge men's secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares.
17
Now you, if you call yourself a Jew; if you rely on the law and brag about your relationship to God;
18
if you know his will and approve of what is superior because you are instructed by the law;
19
if you are convinced that you are a guide for the blind, a light for those who are in the dark,
20
an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of infants, because you have in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth--
21
you, then, who teach others, do you not teach yourself? You who preach against stealing, do you steal?
22
You who say that people should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples?
23
You who brag about the law, do you dishonor God by breaking the law?
24
As it is written: "God's name is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you."
25
Circumcision has value if you observe the law, but if you break the law, you have become as though you had not been circumcised.
26
If those who are not circumcised keep the law's requirements, will they not be regarded as though they were circumcised?
27
The one who is not circumcised physically and yet obeys the law will condemn you who, even though you have the written code and circumcision, are a lawbreaker.
28
A man is not a Jew if he is only one outwardly, nor is circumcision merely outward and physical.
29
No, a man is a Jew if he is one inwardly; and circumcision is circumcision of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code. Such a man's praise is not from men, but from God.
