Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 6:1 - In the four hundred and eightieth year after the Israelites left Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, during the month Ziv (the second month), he began building the LORD's temple.

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 6:2 - The temple King Solomon built for the LORD was 90 feet long, 30 feet wide, and 45 feet high.

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 6:3 - The porch in front of the main hall of the temple was 30 feet long, corresponding to the width of the temple. It was 15 feet wide, extending out from the front of the temple.

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 6:5 - He built an extension all around the walls of the temple's main hall and holy place and constructed side rooms in it.

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 6:6 - The bottom floor of the extension was seven and a half feet wide, the middle floor nine feet wide, and the third floor ten and a half feet wide. He made ledges on the temple's outer walls so the beams would not have to be inserted into the walls.
