Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 3:1 - So Solomon began to build the Temple of the LORD in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, where the LORD had appeared to David, his father. The Temple was built on the threshing floor of Araunah[fn] the Jebusite, the site that David had selected.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 3:3 - These are the dimensions Solomon used for the foundation of the Temple of God (using the old standard of measurement).[fn] It was 90 feet long and 30 feet wide.[fn]

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 3:4 - The entry room at the front of the Temple was 30 feet[fn] wide, running across the entire width of the Temple, and 30 feet[fn] high. He overlaid the inside with pure gold.

NLT Footnotes
Hebrew reads Ornan, a variant spelling of Araunah; compare 2 Sam 24:16.
Hebrew on the second day of the second month. This day of the ancient Hebrew lunar calendar occurred in April or May.
The “old standard of measurement” was a cubit equal to 18 inches [46 centimeters]. The new standard was a cubit of approximately 21 inches [53 centimeters].
Hebrew 60 cubits [27.6 meters] long and 20 cubits [9.2 meters] wide.
Hebrew 20 cubits [9.2 meters]; also in 3:8, 11, 13.
As in some Greek and Syriac manuscripts, which read 20 cubits [9.2 meters]; Hebrew reads 120 [cubits], which is 180 feet or 55 meters.
Hebrew 600 talents [20.4 metric tons].
Hebrew 50 shekels [570 grams].
Hebrew 5 cubits [2.3 meters]; also in 3:11b, 12, 15.
As in Syriac version (see also 1 Kgs 7:15; 2 Kgs 25:17; Jer 52:21), which reads 18 cubits [8.3 meters]; Hebrew reads 35 cubits, which is 52.5 feet or 16.5 meters.
Jakin probably means “he establishes”; Boaz probably means “in him is strength.”
