 katapi NEW STUDY BIBLE<< 2 Chronicles:3 >>Biblia Hebraica (Stuttgartensia) | BHS (pdf - 3.5mb)  

1 Then Solomon began to build the house of Yahweh in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, where Yahweh had appeared to David his father, at the place that David had appointed, on the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite.  וַיָּחֶל שְׁלֹמֹה לִבְנֹות אֶת־בֵּית־יְהוָה בִּירוּשָׁלִַם בְּהַר הַמֹּורִיָּה אֲשֶׁר נִרְאָה לְדָוִיד אָבִיהוּ אֲשֶׁר הֵכִין בִּמְקֹום דָּוִיד בְּגֹרֶן אָרְןָן הַיְבוּסִי׃
2 He began to build in the second month of the fourth year of his reign.  וַיָּחֶל לִבְנֹות בַּחֹדֶשׁ הַשֵּׁנִי בַּשֵּׁנִי בִּשְׁנַת אַרְבַּע לְמַלְכוּתֹו׃
3 These are Solomon's measurements for building the house of God: the length, in cubits of the old standard, was sixty cubits, and the breadth twenty cubits.  וְאֵלֶּה הוּסַד שְׁלֹמֹה לִבְנֹות אֶת־בֵּית הָאֱלֹהִים הָאֹרֶךְ אַמֹּות בַּמִּדָּה הָרִאשֹׁונָה אַמֹּות שִׁשִּׁים וְרֹחַב אַמֹּות עֶשְׂרִים׃
4 The vestibule in front of the nave of the house was twenty cubits long, equal to the width of the house; and its height was a hundred and twenty cubits. He overlaid it on the inside with pure gold.  וְהָאוּלָם אֲשֶׁר עַל־פְּנֵי הָאֹרֶךְ עַל־פְּנֵי רֹחַב־הַבַּיִת אַמֹּות עֶשְׂרִים וְהַגֹּבַהּ מֵאָה וְעֶשְׂרִים וַיְצַפֵּהוּ מִפְּנִימָה זָהָב טָהֹור׃
5 The nave he lined with cypress, and covered it with fine gold, and made palms and chains on it.  וְאֵת הַבַּיִת הַגָּדֹול חִפָּה עֵץ בְּרֹושִׁים וַיְחַפֵּהוּ זָהָב טֹוב וַיַּעַל עָלָיו תִּמֹרִים וְשַׁרְשְׁרֹות׃
6 He adorned the house with settings of precious stones. The gold was gold of Parvaim.  וַיְצַף אֶת־הַבַּיִת אֶבֶן יְקָרָה לְתִפְאָרֶת וְהַזָּהָב זְהַב פַּרְוָיִם׃
7 So he lined the house with gold - its beams, its thresholds, its walls, and its doors; and he carved cherubim on the walls.  וַיְחַף אֶת־הַבַּיִת הַקֹּרֹות הַסִּפִּים וְקִירֹותָיו וְדַלְתֹותָיו זָהָב וּפִתַּח כְּרוּבִים עַל־הַקִּירֹות׃ ס
8 And he made the most holy place; its length, corresponding to the breadth of the house, was twenty cubits, and its breadth was twenty cubits; he overlaid it with six hundred talents of fine gold.  וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת־בֵּית־קֹדֶשׁ הַקֳּדָשִׁים אָרְכֹּו עַל־פְּנֵי רֹחַב־הַבַּיִת אַמֹּות עֶשְׂרִים וְרָחְבֹּו אַמֹּות עֶשְׂרִים וַיְחַפֵּהוּ זָהָב טֹוב לְכִכָּרִים שֵׁשׁ מֵאֹות׃
9 The weight of the nails was one shekel to fifty shekels of gold. And he overlaid the upper chambers with gold.  וּמִשְׁקָל לְמִסְמְרֹות לִשְׁקָלִים חֲמִשִּׁים זָהָב וְהָעֲלִיֹּות חִפָּה זָהָב׃
10 In the most holy place he made two cherubim of wood and overlaid them with gold.  וַיַּעַשׂ בְּבֵית־קֹדֶשׁ הַקֳּדָשִׁים כְּרוּבִים שְׁנַיִם מַעֲשֵׂה צַעֲצֻעִים וַיְצַפּוּ אֹתָם זָהָב׃
11 The wings of the cherubim together extended twenty cubits: one wing of the one, of five cubits, touched the wall of the house, and its other wing, of five cubits, touched the wing of the other cherub;  וְכַנְפֵי הַכְּרוּבִים אָרְכָּם אַמֹּות עֶשְׂרִים כְּנַף הָאֶחָד לְאַמֹּות חָמֵשׁ מַגַּעַת לְקִיר הַבַּיִת וְהַכָּנָף הָאַחֶרֶת אַמֹּות חָמֵשׁ מַגִּיעַ לִכְנַף הַכְּרוּב הָאַחֵר׃
12 and of this cherub, one wing, of five cubits, touched the wall of the house, and the other wing, also of five cubits, was joined to the wing of the first cherub.  וּכְנַף הַכְּרוּב הָאֶחָד אַמֹּות חָמֵשׁ מַגִּיעַ לְקִיר הַבָּיִת וְהַכָּנָף הָאַחֶרֶת אַמֹּות חָמֵשׁ דְּבֵקָה לִכְנַף הַכְּרוּב הָאַחֵר׃
13 The wings of these cherubim extended twenty cubits; the cherubim stood on their feet, facing the nave.  כַּנְפֵי הַכְּרוּבִים הָאֵלֶּה פֹּרְשִׂים אַמֹּות עֶשְׂרִים וְהֵם עֹמְדִים עַל־רַגְלֵיהֶם וּפְנֵיהֶם לַבָּיִת׃ ס
14 And he made the veil of blue and purple and crimson fabrics and fine linen, and worked cherubim on it.  וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת־הַפָּרֹכֶת תְּכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְכַרְמִיל וּבוּץ וַיַּעַל עָלָיו כְּרוּבִים׃ ס
15 In front of the house he made two pillars thirty-five cubits high, with a capital of five cubits on the top of each. The two bronze columns. 2Chr.3.15-17 | 1Kgs.7.15-22וַיַּעַשׂ לִפְנֵי הַבַּיִת עַמּוּדִים שְׁנַיִם אַמֹּות שְׁלֹשִׁים וְחָמֵשׁ אֹרֶךְ וְהַצֶּפֶת אֲשֶׁר־עַל־רֹאשֹׁו אַמֹּות חָמֵשׁ׃ ס
16 He made chains like a necklace and put them on the tops of the pillars; and he made a hundred pomegranates, and put them on the chains.  וַיַּעַשׂ שַׁרְשְׁרֹות בַּדְּבִיר וַיִּתֵּן עַל־רֹאשׁ הָעַמֻּדִים וַיַּעַשׂ רִמֹּונִים מֵאָה וַיִּתֵּן בַּשַּׁרְשְׁרֹות׃
17 He set up the pillars in front of the temple, one on the south, the other on the north; that on the south he called Jachin, and that on the north Boaz.  וַיָּקֶם אֶת־הָעַמּוּדִים עַל־פְּנֵי הַהֵיכָל אֶחָד מִיָּמִין וְאֶחָד מֵהַשְּׂמֹאול וַיִּקְרָא שֵׁם־{כ= הַיְמִינִי} {ק= הַיְמָנִי} יָכִין וְשֵׁם הַשְּׂמָאלִי בֹּעַז׃ ס

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
The katapi NEW STUDY BIBLE is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have printed 'YHWH' in black. The later vowel sounds I have shown in the colour gray;
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.

The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background.
