1Kgs 6:15-20

15He lined the walls of the house on the inside with boards of cedar; from the floor of the house to the rafters of the ceiling, he covered them on the inside with wood; and he covered the floor of the house with boards of cypress.16He built twenty cubits of the rear of the house with boards of cedar from the floor to the rafters, and he built this within as an inner sanctuary, as the most holy place.17The house, that is, the nave in front of the inner sanctuary, was forty cubits long.18The cedar within the house had carvings of gourds and open flowers; all was cedar, no stone was seen.19The inner sanctuary he prepared in the innermost part of the house, to set there the ark of the covenant of the Lord.20The interior of the inner sanctuary was twenty cubits long, twenty cubits wide, and twenty cubits high; he overlaid it with pure gold. He also overlaid the altar with cedar.
