1 Kings 6:4-6 Living Bible (TLB)
4 Narrow windows were used throughout.
5 An annex of rooms was built along the full length of both sides of the Temple against the outer walls. 6 These rooms were three stories high, the lower floor being 7½ feet wide, the second floor 9 feet wide, and the upper floor 10½ feet wide. The rooms were connected to the walls of the Temple by beams resting on blocks built out from the wall—so the beams were not inserted into the walls themselves.
