1 Kings 6:4-6 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

There were narrow windows in the Temple. These windows were smaller on the inside of the wall than on the outside.[a] Then Solomon built a row of rooms around the main part of the Temple. This row of rooms was three stories tall with the rooms built one above the other. The rooms touched the Temple wall, but their beams were not built into that wall. The Temple wall became thinner at the top, so the rooms on the upper floors were larger than the ones below them. The rooms on the bottom floor were 5 cubits[b] wide. The rooms on the middle floor were 6 cubits[c] wide. The rooms above that were 7 cubits[d] wide.
