1 Kings chapter 6

1
In the four hundred and eightieth year after the Israelites had come out of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month of Ziv, the second month, he began to build the temple of the LORD.
2
The temple that King Solomon built for the LORD was sixty cubits long, twenty wide and thirty high.
3
The portico at the front of the main hall of the temple extended the width of the temple, that is twenty cubits, and projected ten cubits from the front of the temple.
4
He made narrow clerestory windows in the temple.
5
Against the walls of the main hall and inner sanctuary he built a structure around the building, in which there were side rooms.
6
The lowest floor was five cubits wide, the middle floor six cubits and the third floor seven. He made offset ledges around the outside of the temple so that nothing would be inserted into the temple walls.
7
In building the temple, only blocks dressed at the quarry were used, and no hammer, chisel or any other iron tool was heard at the temple site while it was being built.
8
The entrance to the lowest floor was on the south side of the temple; a stairway led up to the middle level and from there to the third.
9
So he built the temple and completed it, roofing it with beams and cedar planks.
10
And he built the side rooms all along the temple. The height of each was five cubits, and they were attached to the temple by beams of cedar.
11
The word of the LORD came to Solomon:
12
"As for this temple you are building, if you follow my decrees, carry out my regulations and keep all my commands and obey them, I will fulfill through you the promise I gave to David your father.
13
And I will live among the Israelites and will not abandon my people Israel."
14
So Solomon built the temple and completed it.
15
He lined its interior walls with cedar boards, paneling them from the floor of the temple to the ceiling, and covered the floor of the temple with planks of pine.
16
He partitioned off twenty cubits at the rear of the temple with cedar boards from floor to ceiling to form within the temple an inner sanctuary, the Most Holy Place.
17
The main hall in front of this room was forty cubits long.
18
The inside of the temple was cedar, carved with gourds and open flowers. Everything was cedar; no stone was to be seen.
19
He prepared the inner sanctuary within the temple to set the ark of the covenant of the LORD there.
20
The inner sanctuary was twenty cubits long, twenty wide and twenty high. He overlaid the inside with pure gold, and he also overlaid the altar of cedar.
21
Solomon covered the inside of the temple with pure gold, and he extended gold chains across the front of the inner sanctuary, which was overlaid with gold.
22
So he overlaid the whole interior with gold. He also overlaid with gold the altar that belonged to the inner sanctuary.
23
In the inner sanctuary he made a pair of cherubim of olive wood, each ten cubits high.
24
One wing of the first cherub was five cubits long, and the other wing five cubits-- ten cubits from wing tip to wing tip.
25
The second cherub also measured ten cubits, for the two cherubim were identical in size and shape.
26
The height of each cherub was ten cubits.
27
He placed the cherubim inside the innermost room of the temple, with their wings spread out. The wing of one cherub touched one wall, while the wing of the other touched the other wall, and their wings touched each other in the middle of the room.
28
He overlaid the cherubim with gold.
29
On the walls all around the temple, in both the inner and outer rooms, he carved cherubim, palm trees and open flowers.
30
He also covered the floors of both the inner and outer rooms of the temple with gold.
31
For the entrance of the inner sanctuary he made doors of olive wood with five-sided jambs.
32
And on the two olive wood doors he carved cherubim, palm trees and open flowers, and overlaid the cherubim and palm trees with beaten gold.
33
In the same way he made four-sided jambs of olive wood for the entrance to the main hall.
34
He also made two pine doors, each having two leaves that turned in sockets.
35
He carved cherubim, palm trees and open flowers on them and overlaid them with gold hammered evenly over the carvings.
36
And he built the inner courtyard of three courses of dressed stone and one course of trimmed cedar beams.
37
The foundation of the temple of the LORD was laid in the fourth year, in the month of Ziv.
38
In the eleventh year in the month of Bul, the eighth month, the temple was finished in all its details according to its specifications. He had spent seven years building it.

2 Chronicles chapter 3

1
Then Solomon began to build the temple of the LORD in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, where the LORD had appeared to his father David. It was on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite, the place provided by David.
2
He began building on the second day of the second month in the fourth year of his reign.
3
The foundation Solomon laid for building the temple of God was sixty cubits long and twenty cubits wide (using the cubit of the old standard).
4
The portico at the front of the temple was twenty cubits long across the width of the building and twenty cubits high. He overlaid the inside with pure gold.
5
He paneled the main hall with pine and covered it with fine gold and decorated it with palm tree and chain designs.
6
He adorned the temple with precious stones. And the gold he used was gold of Parvaim.
7
He overlaid the ceiling beams, doorframes, walls and doors of the temple with gold, and he carved cherubim on the walls.
8
He built the Most Holy Place, its length corresponding to the width of the temple-- twenty cubits long and twenty cubits wide. He overlaid the inside with six hundred talents of fine gold.
9
The gold nails weighed fifty shekels. He also overlaid the upper parts with gold.
10
In the Most Holy Place he made a pair of sculptured cherubim and overlaid them with gold.
11
The total wingspan of the cherubim was twenty cubits. One wing of the first cherub was five cubits long and touched the temple wall, while its other wing, also five cubits long, touched the wing of the other cherub.
12
Similarly one wing of the second cherub was five cubits long and touched the other temple wall, and its other wing, also five cubits long, touched the wing of the first cherub.
13
The wings of these cherubim extended twenty cubits. They stood on their feet, facing the main hall.
14
He made the curtain of blue, purple and crimson yarn and fine linen, with cherubim worked into it.
15
In the front of the temple he made two pillars, which [together] were thirty-five cubits long, each with a capital on top measuring five cubits.
16
He made interwoven chains and put them on top of the pillars. He also made a hundred pomegranates and attached them to the chains.
17
He erected the pillars in the front of the temple, one to the south and one to the north. The one to the south he named Jakin and the one to the north Boaz.

Psalm chapter 97

1
The LORD reigns, let the earth be glad; let the distant shores rejoice.
2
Clouds and thick darkness surround him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
3
Fire goes before him and consumes his foes on every side.
4
His lightning lights up the world; the earth sees and trembles.
5
The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth.
6
The heavens proclaim his righteousness, and all the peoples see his glory.
7
All who worship images are put to shame, those who boast in idols-- worship him, all you gods!
8
Zion hears and rejoices and the villages of Judah are glad because of your judgments, O LORD.
9
For you, O LORD, are the Most High over all the earth; you are exalted far above all gods.
10
Let those who love the LORD hate evil, for he guards the lives of his faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
11
Light is shed upon the righteous and joy on the upright in heart.
12
Rejoice in the LORD, you who are righteous, and praise his holy name.

Romans chapter 1

1
Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God--
2
the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures
3
regarding his Son, who as to his human nature was a descendant of David,
4
and who through the Spirit of holiness was declared with power to be the Son of God by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.
5
Through him and for his name's sake, we received grace and apostleship to call people from among all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith.
6
And you also are among those who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.
7
To all in Rome who are loved by God and called to be saints: Grace and peace to you from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
8
First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is being reported all over the world.
9
God, whom I serve with my whole heart in preaching the gospel of his Son, is my witness how constantly I remember you
10
in my prayers at all times; and I pray that now at last by God's will the way may be opened for me to come to you.
11
I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong--
12
that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other's faith.
13
I do not want you to be unaware, brothers, that I planned many times to come to you (but have been prevented from doing so until now) in order that I might have a harvest among you, just as I have had among the other Gentiles.
14
I am obligated both to Greeks and non-Greeks, both to the wise and the foolish.
15
That is why I am so eager to preach the gospel also to you who are at Rome.
16
I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.
17
For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: "The righteous will live by faith."
18
The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness,
19
since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.
20
For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities-- his eternal power and divine nature-- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
21
For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.
22
Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools
23
and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
24
Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.
25
They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator-- who is forever praised. Amen.
26
Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.
27
In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
28
Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.
29
They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips,
30
slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents;
31
they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless.
32
Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
