1 Kings chapter 7

Flash Needs to be Turned On
1
But Solomon was building his own house thirteen years, and he finished all his house.
2
He built also the house of the forest of Lebanon; the length thereof was an hundred cubits, and the breadth thereof fifty cubits, and the height thereof thirty cubits, upon four rows of cedar pillars, with cedar beams upon the pillars.
3
And it was covered with cedar above upon the beams, that lay on forty five pillars, fifteen in a row.
4
And there were windows in three rows, and light was against light in three ranks.
5
And all the doors and posts were square, with the windows: and light was against light in three ranks.
6
And he made a porch of pillars; the length thereof was fifty cubits, and the breadth thereof thirty cubits: and the porch was before them: and the other pillars and the thick beam were before them.
7
Then he made a porch for the throne where he might judge, even the porch of judgment: and it was covered with cedar from one side of the floor to the other.
8
And his house where he dwelt had another court within the porch, which was of the like work. Solomon made also an house for Pharaoh's daughter, whom he had taken to wife, like unto this porch.
9
All these were of costly stones, according to the measures of hewed stones, sawed with saws, within and without, even from the foundation unto the coping, and so on the outside toward the great court.
10
And the foundation was of costly stones, even great stones, stones of ten cubits, and stones of eight cubits.
11
And above were costly stones, after the measures of hewed stones, and cedars.
12
And the great court round about was with three rows of hewed stones, and a row of cedar beams, both for the inner court of the house of the LORD, and for the porch of the house.
13
And king Solomon sent and fetched Hiram out of Tyre.
14
He was a widow's son of the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man of Tyre, a worker in brass: and he was filled with wisdom, and understanding, and cunning to work all works in brass. And he came to king Solomon, and wrought all his work.
15
For he cast two pillars of brass, of eighteen cubits high apiece: and a line of twelve cubits did compass either of them about.
16
And he made two chapiters of molten brass, to set upon the tops of the pillars: the height of the one chapiter was five cubits, and the height of the other chapiter was five cubits:
17
And nets of checker work, and wreaths of chain work, for the chapiters which were upon the top of the pillars; seven for the one chapiter, and seven for the other chapiter.
18
And he made the pillars, and two rows round about upon the one network, to cover the chapiters that were upon the top, with pomegranates: and so did he for the other chapiter.
19
And the chapiters that were upon the top of the pillars were of lily work in the porch, four cubits.
20
And the chapiters upon the two pillars had pomegranates also above, over against the belly which was by the network: and the pomegranates were two hundred in rows round about upon the other chapiter.
21
And he set up the pillars in the porch of the temple: and he set up the right pillar, and called the name thereof Jachin: and he set up the left pillar, and called the name thereof Boaz.
22
And upon the top of the pillars was lily work: so was the work of the pillars finished.
23
And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.
24
And under the brim of it round about there were knops compassing it, ten in a cubit, compassing the sea round about: the knops were cast in two rows, when it was cast.
25
It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking toward the north, and three looking toward the west, and three looking toward the south, and three looking toward the east: and the sea was set above upon them, and all their hinder parts were inward.
26
And it was an hand breadth thick, and the brim thereof was wrought like the brim of a cup, with flowers of lilies: it contained two thousand baths.
27
And he made ten bases of brass; four cubits was the length of one base, and four cubits the breadth thereof, and three cubits the height of it.
28
And the work of the bases was on this manner: they had borders, and the borders were between the ledges:
29
And on the borders that were between the ledges were lions, oxen, and cherubims: and upon the ledges there was a base above: and beneath the lions and oxen were certain additions made of thin work.
30
And every base had four brasen wheels, and plates of brass: and the four corners thereof had undersetters: under the laver were undersetters molten, at the side of every addition.
31
And the mouth of it within the chapiter and above was a cubit: but the mouth thereof was round after the work of the base, a cubit and an half: and also upon the mouth of it were gravings with their borders, foursquare, not round.
32
And under the borders were four wheels; and the axletrees of the wheels were joined to the base: and the height of a wheel was a cubit and half a cubit.
33
And the work of the wheels was like the work of a chariot wheel: their axletrees, and their naves, and their felloes, and their spokes, were all molten.
34
And there were four undersetters to the four corners of one base: and the undersetters were of the very base itself.
35
And in the top of the base was there a round compass of half a cubit high: and on the top of the base the ledges thereof and the borders thereof were of the same.
36
For on the plates of the ledges thereof, and on the borders thereof, he graved cherubims, lions, and palm trees, according to the proportion of every one, and additions round about.
37
After this manner he made the ten bases: all of them had one casting, one measure, and one size.
38
Then made he ten lavers of brass: one laver contained forty baths: and every laver was four cubits: and upon every one of the ten bases one laver.
39
And he put five bases on the right side of the house, and five on the left side of the house: and he set the sea on the right side of the house eastward over against the south.
40
And Hiram made the lavers, and the shovels, and the basons. So Hiram made an end of doing all the work that he made king Solomon for the house of the LORD:
41
The two pillars, and the two bowls of the chapiters that were on the top of the two pillars; and the two networks, to cover the two bowls of the chapiters which were upon the top of the pillars;
42
And four hundred pomegranates for the two networks, even two rows of pomegranates for one network, to cover the two bowls of the chapiters that were upon the pillars;
43
And the ten bases, and ten lavers on the bases;
44
And one sea, and twelve oxen under the sea;
45
And the pots, and the shovels, and the basons: and all these vessels, which Hiram made to king Solomon for the house of the LORD, were of bright brass.
46
In the plain of Jordan did the king cast them, in the clay ground between Succoth and Zarthan.
47
And Solomon left all the vessels unweighed, because they were exceeding many: neither was the weight of the brass found out.
48
And Solomon made all the vessels that pertained unto the house of the LORD: the altar of gold, and the table of gold, whereupon the shewbread was,
49
And the candlesticks of pure gold, five on the right side, and five on the left, before the oracle, with the flowers, and the lamps, and the tongs of gold,
50
And the bowls, and the snuffers, and the basons, and the spoons, and the censers of pure gold; and the hinges of gold, both for the doors of the inner house, the most holy place, and for the doors of the house, to wit, of the temple.
51
So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of the LORD. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of the LORD.

1
Moreover he made an altar of brass, twenty cubits the length thereof, and twenty cubits the breadth thereof, and ten cubits the height thereof.
2
Also he made a molten sea of ten cubits from brim to brim, round in compass, and five cubits the height thereof; and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.
3
And under it was the similitude of oxen, which did compass it round about: ten in a cubit, compassing the sea round about. Two rows of oxen were cast, when it was cast.
4
It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking toward the north, and three looking toward the west, and three looking toward the south, and three looking toward the east: and the sea was set above upon them, and all their hinder parts were inward.
5
And the thickness of it was an handbreadth, and the brim of it like the work of the brim of a cup, with flowers of lilies; and it received and held three thousand baths.
6
He made also ten lavers, and put five on the right hand, and five on the left, to wash in them: such things as they offered for the burnt offering they washed in them; but the sea was for the priests to wash in.
7
And he made ten candlesticks of gold according to their form, and set them in the temple, five on the right hand, and five on the left.
8
He made also ten tables, and placed them in the temple, five on the right side, and five on the left. And he made an hundred basons of gold.
9
Furthermore he made the court of the priests, and the great court, and doors for the court, and overlaid the doors of them with brass.
10
And he set the sea on the right side of the east end, over against the south.
11
And Huram made the pots, and the shovels, and the basons. And Huram finished the work that he was to make for king Solomon for the house of God;
12
To wit, the two pillars, and the pommels, and the chapiters which were on the top of the two pillars, and the two wreaths to cover the two pommels of the chapiters which were on the top of the pillars;
13
And four hundred pomegranates on the two wreaths; two rows of pomegranates on each wreath, to cover the two pommels of the chapiters which were upon the pillars.
14
He made also bases, and lavers made he upon the bases;
15
One sea, and twelve oxen under it.
16
The pots also, and the shovels, and the fleshhooks, and all their instruments, did Huram his father make to king Solomon for the house of the LORD of bright brass.
17
In the plain of Jordan did the king cast them, in the clay ground between Succoth and Zeredathah.
18
Thus Solomon made all these vessels in great abundance: for the weight of the brass could not be found out.
19
And Solomon made all the vessels that were for the house of God, the golden altar also, and the tables whereon the shewbread was set;
20
Moreover the candlesticks with their lamps, that they should burn after the manner before the oracle, of pure gold;
21
And the flowers, and the lamps, and the tongs, made he of gold, and that perfect gold;
22
And the snuffers, and the basons, and the spoons, and the censers, of pure gold: and the entry of the house, the inner doors thereof for the most holy place, and the doors of the house of the temple, were of gold.

Psalm chapter 98

1
O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.
2
The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.
3
He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
4
Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
5
Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.
6
With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.
7
Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
8
Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together
9
Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.

Romans chapter 2

Flash Needs to be Turned On
1
Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.
2
But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.
3
And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?
4
Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?
5
But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;
6
Who will render to every man according to his deeds:
7
To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:
8
But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,
9
Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;
10
But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:
11
For there is no respect of persons with God.
12
For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;
13
For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
14
For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
15
Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)
16
In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
17
Behold, thou art called a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast of God,
18
And knowest his will, and approvest the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law;
19
And art confident that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness,
20
An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law.
21
Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal?
22
Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?
23
Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God?
24
For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written.
25
For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keep the law: but if thou be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision.
26
Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision?
27
And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the law, judge thee, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the law?
28
For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
29
But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
