Bible: 1 Kings 6:23-29

6:23 In the inner sanctuary he made two cherubs of olive wood; each stood 15 feet 1  high. 6:24 Each of the first cherub’s wings was seven and a half feet long; its entire wingspan was 15 feet. 2  6:25 The second cherub also had a wingspan of 15 feet; it was identical to the first in measurements and shape. 3  6:26 Each cherub stood 15 feet high. 4  6:27 He put the cherubs in the inner sanctuary of the temple. 5  Their wings were spread out. One of the first cherub’s wings touched one wall and one of the other cherub’s wings touched the opposite wall. The first cherub’s other wing touched the second cherub’s other wing in the middle of the room. 6  6:28 He plated the cherubs with gold.

6:29 On all the walls around the temple, inside and out, 7  he carved 8  cherubs, palm trees, and flowers in bloom.
