The First Book of the Kings
列王記上 第7章

7-1 And Solomon was building his own house thirteen years, and he finished all his house. またソロモンは自分の家を建てたが、十三年かかってその家を全部建て終った。
7-2 For he built the house of the forest of Lebanon; the length thereof was a 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. 彼はレバノンの森の家を建てた。長さ百キュビト、幅五十キュビト、高さ三十キュビトで、三列の香柏の柱があり、その柱の上に香柏の梁があった。
7-3 And it was covered with cedar above over the forty and five beams, that were upon the pillars; fifteen in a row. 四十五本の柱の上にある室は香柏の板でおおった。柱は各列十五本あった。
7-4 And there were beams in three rows, and window was over against window in three ranks. また窓わくが三列あって、窓と窓と三段に向かい合っていた。
7-5 And all the doors and posts were made square with beams: and window was over against window in three ranks. 戸口と窓はみな四角の枠をもち、窓と窓と三段に向かい合った。
7-6 And he made the porch of pillars; the length thereof was fifty cubits, and the breadth thereof thirty cubits; and a porch before them; and pillars and a threshold before them. また柱の広間を造った。長さ五十キュビト、幅三十キュビトであった。柱の前に一つの広間があり、その玄関に柱とひさしがあった。
7-7 And he made the porch of the throne where he was to judge, even the porch of judgment: and it was covered with cedar from floor to floor. またソロモンはみずから審判をするために玉座の広間、すなわち審判の広間を造った。床からたるきまで香柏をもっておおった。
7-8 And his house where he was to dwell, the other court within the porch, was of the like work. He made also a house for Pharaoh’s daughter (whom Solomon had taken to wife), like unto this porch. ソロモンが住んだ宮殿はその広間のうしろの他の庭にあって、その造作は同じであった。ソロモンはまた彼がめとったパロの娘のために家を建てたが、その広間と同じであった。
7-9 All these were of costly stones, even of hewn stone, according to measure, sawed with saws, within and without, even from the foundation unto the coping, and so on the outside unto the great court. これらはみな内外とも、土台から軒まで、また主の宮の庭から大庭まで、寸法に合わせて切った石、すなわち、のこぎりでひいた高価な石で造られた。
7-10 And the foundation was of costly stones, even great stones, stones of ten cubits, and stones of eight cubits. また土台は高価な石、大きな石、すなわち八キュビトの石、十キュビトの石であった。
7-11 And above were costly stones, even hewn stone, according to measure, and cedar-wood. その上には寸法に合わせて切った高価な石と香柏とがあった。
7-12 And the great court round about had three courses of hewn stone, and a course of cedar beams; like as the inner court of the house of Jehovah, and the porch of the house. また大庭の周囲には三かさねの切り石と、一かさねの香柏の角材があった。主の宮の内庭と宮殿の広間の庭の場合と同じである。
7-13 And king Solomon sent and fetched Hiram out of Tyre. ソロモン王は人をつかわしてツロからヒラムを呼んできた。
7-14 He was the son of a widow 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 skill, to work all works in brass. And he came to king Solomon, and wrought all his work. 彼はナフタリの部族の寡婦の子であって、その父はツロの人で、青銅の細工人であった。ヒラムは青銅のいろいろな細工をする知恵と悟りと知識に満ちた者であったが、ソロモン王のところにきて、そのすべての細工をした。
7-15 For he fashioned the two pillars of brass, eighteen cubits high apiece: and a line of twelve cubits compassed either of them about. 彼は青銅の柱二本を鋳た。一本の柱の高さは十八キュビト、そのまわりは綱をもって測ると十二キュビトあり、指四本の厚さで空洞であった。他の柱も同じである。
7-16 And he made two capitals of molten brass, to set upon the tops of the pillars: the height of the one capital was five cubits, and the height of the other capital was five cubits. また青銅を溶かして柱頭二つを造り、柱の頂にすえた。その一つの柱頭の高さは五キュビト、他の柱頭の高さも五キュビトであった。
7-17 There were nets of checker-work, and wreaths of chain-work, for the capitals which were upon the top of the pillars; seven for the one capital, and seven for the other capital. 柱の頂にある柱頭のために鎖に編んだ飾りひもで市松模様の網細工二つを造った。すなわちこの柱頭のために一つ、かの柱頭のために一つを造った。
7-18 So he made the pillars; and there were two rows round about upon the one network, to cover the capitals that were upon the top of the pillars: and so did he for the other capital. またざくろを造った。すなわち二並びのざくろを一つの網細工の上のまわりに造って、柱の頂にある柱頭を巻いた。他の柱頭にも同じようにした。
7-19 And the capitals that were upon the top of the pillars in the porch were of lily-work, four cubits. この廊の柱の頂にある柱頭の上に四キュビトのゆりの花の細工があった。
7-20 And there were capitals above also upon the two pillars, close by the belly which was beside the network: and the pomegranates were two hundred, in rows round about upon the other capital. 二つの柱の上端の丸い突出部の上にある網細工の柱頭の周囲には、おのおの二百のざくろが二並びになっていた。
7-21 And he set up the pillars at 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. この柱を神殿の廊に立てた。すなわち南に柱を立てて、その名をヤキンと名づけ、北に柱を立てて、その名をボアズと名づけた。
7-22 And upon the top of the pillars was lily-work: so was the work of the pillars finished. その柱の頂にはゆりの花の細工があった。こうしてその柱の造作ができあがった。
7-23 And he made the molten sea of ten cubits from brim to brim, round in compass, and the height thereof was five cubits; and a line of thirty cubits compassed it round about. また海を鋳て造った。縁から縁まで十キュビトであって、周囲は円形をなし、高さ五キュビトで、その周囲は綱をもって測ると三十キュビトであった。
7-24 And under the brim of it round about there were knops which did compass it, for ten cubits, compassing the sea round about: the knops were in two rows, cast when it was cast. その縁の下には三十キュビトの周囲をめぐるひさごがあって、海の周囲を囲んでいた。そのひさごは二並びで、海を鋳る時に鋳たものである。
7-25 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 upon them above, and all their hinder parts were inward. その海は十二の牛の上に置かれ、その三つは北に向かい、三つは西に向かい、三つは南に向かい、三つは東に向かっていた。海はその上に置かれ、牛のうしろは皆内に向かっていた。
7-26 And it was a handbreadth thick: and the brim thereof was wrought like the brim of a cup, like the flower of a lily: it held two thousand baths. 海の厚さは手の幅で、その縁は杯の縁のように、ゆりの花に似せて造られた。海には水が二千バテはいった。
7-27 And he made the 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. また青銅の台を十個造った。台は長さ四キュビト、幅四キュビト、高さ三キュビトであった。
7-28 And the work of the bases was on this manner: they had panels; and there were panels between the ledges; その台の構造は次のとおりである。台には鏡板があり、鏡板は枠の中にあった。
7-29 and on the panels that were between the ledges were lions, oxen, and cherubim; and upon the ledges there was a pedestal above; and beneath the lions and oxen were wreaths of hanging work. 枠の中にある鏡板には、ししと牛とケルビムとがあり、また、ししと牛の上と下にある枠の斜面には花飾りが細工してあった。
7-30 And every base had four brazen wheels, and axles of brass; and the four feet thereof had undersetters: beneath the laver were the undersetters molten, with wreaths at the side of each. また台にはおのおの四つの青銅の車輪と、青銅の車軸があり、その四すみには洗盤のささえがあった。そのささえは、おのおの花飾りのかたわらに鋳て造りつけてあった。
7-31 And the mouth of it within the capital and above was a cubit: and the mouth thereof was round after the work of a pedestal, a cubit and a half; and also upon the mouth of it were gravings, and their panels were foursquare, not round. その口は一キュビト上に突き出て、台の頂の内にあり、その口は丸く、台座のように造られ、深さ一キュビト半であった。またその口には彫り物があった。その鏡板は四角で、丸くなかった。
7-32 And the four wheels were underneath the panels; and the axletrees of the wheels were in the base: and the height of a wheel was a cubit and half a cubit. 四つの車輪は鏡板の下にあり、車軸は台に取り付けてあり、車輪の高さはおのおの一キュビト半であった。
7-33 And the work of the wheels was like the work of a chariot wheel: their axletrees, and their felloes, and their spokes, and their naves, were all molten. 車輪の構造は戦車の車輪の構造と同じで、その車軸と縁と輻と轂とはみな鋳物であった。
7-34 And there were four undersetters at the four corners of each base: the undersetters thereof were of the base itself. おのおのの台の四すみに四つのささえがあり、そのささえは台の一部をなしていた。
7-35 And in the top of the base was there a round compass half a cubit high; and on the top of the base the stays thereof and the panels thereof were of the same. 台の上には高さ半キュビトの丸い帯輪があった。そして台の上にあるその支柱と鏡板とはその一部をなしていた。
7-36 And on the plates of the stays thereof, and on the panels thereof, he graved cherubim, lions, and palm-trees, according to the space of each, with wreaths round about. その支柱の表面と鏡板にはそれぞれの場所に、ケルビムと、ししと、しゅろを刻み、またその周囲に花飾りを施した。
7-37 After this manner he made the ten bases: all of them had one casting, one measure, and one form. このようにして十個の台を造った。それはみな同じ鋳方、同じ寸法、同じ形であった。
7-38 And he made ten lavers of brass: one laver contained forty baths; and every laver was four cubits; and upon very one of the ten bases one laver. また青銅の洗盤を十個造った。洗盤はおのおの四十バテの水がはいり、洗盤はおのおの四キュビトであった。十個の台の上にはおのおの一つずつの洗盤があった。
7-39 And he set the bases, five 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, toward the south. その台の五個を宮の南の方に、五個を宮の北の方に置き、宮の東南の方に海をすえた。
7-40 And Hiram made the lavers, and the shovels, and the basins. So Hiram made an end of doing all the work that he wrought for king Solomon in the house of Jehovah: ヒラムはまたつぼと十能と鉢を造った。こうしてヒラムはソロモン王のために主の宮のすべての細工をなし終えた。
7-41 the two pillars, and the two bowls of the capitals that were on the top of the pillars; and the two networks to cover the two bowls of the capitals that were on the top of the pillars; すなわち二本の柱と、その柱の頂にある柱頭の二つの玉と、柱の頂にある柱頭の二つの玉をおおう二つの網細工と、
7-42 and the four hundred pomegranates for the two networks; two rows of pomegranates for each network, to cover the two bowls of the capitals that were upon the pillars; その二つの網細工のためのざくろ四百。このざくろは一つの網細工に、二並びにつけて、柱の頂にある柱頭の二つの玉を巻いた。
7-43 and the ten bases, and the ten lavers on the bases; また十個の台と、その台の上の十個の洗盤と、
7-44 and the one sea, and the twelve oxen under the sea; 一つの海と、その海の下の十二の牛とであった。
7-45 and the pots, and the shovels, and the basins: even all these vessels, which Hiram made for king Solomon, in the house of Jehovah, were of burnished brass. さてつぼと十能と鉢、すなわちヒラムがソロモン王のために造った主の宮のこれらの器はみな光のある青銅であった。
7-46 In the plain of the Jordan did the king cast them, in the clay ground between Succoth and Zarethan. 王はヨルダンの低地で、スコテとザレタンの間の粘土の地でこれらを鋳た。
7-47 And Solomon left all the vessels unweighed, because they were exceeding many: the weight of the brass could not be found out. ソロモンはその器が非常に多かったので、皆それをはからずにおいた。その青銅の重さは、はかり得なかった。
7-48 And Solomon made all the vessels that were in the house of Jehovah: the golden altar, and the table whereupon the showbread was, of gold; またソロモンは主の宮にあるもろもろの器を造った。すなわち金の祭壇と、供えのパンを載せる金の机、
7-49 and the candlesticks, five on the right side, and five on the left, before the oracle, of pure gold; and the flowers, and the lamps, and the tongs, of gold; および純金の燭台。この燭台は本殿の前に、五つは南に、五つは北にあった。また金の花と、ともしび皿と、心かきと、
7-50 and the cups, and the snuffers, and the basins, and the spoons, and the firepans, of pure gold; and the hinges, both for the doors of the inner house, the most holy place, and for the doors of the house, to wit, of the temple, of gold. 純金の皿と、心切りばさみと、鉢と、香の杯と、心取り皿と、至聖所である宮の奥のとびらのためおよび、宮の拝殿のとびらのために、金のひじつぼを造った。
7-51 Thus all the work that king Solomon wrought in the house of Jehovah was finished. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated, even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, and put them in the treasuries of the house of Jehovah. こうしてソロモン王が主の宮のために造るすべての細工は終った。そしてソロモンは父ダビデがささげた物、すなわち金銀および器物を携え入り、主の宮の宝蔵の中にたくわえた。
