“Jerusalem is the most sacred city on Earth, a holy place for the three largest religions of Judaism, Islam and Christian-ity. Its most hallowed spot, Mount Moriah, is nowadays dominated by the Dome of the Rock, with its
striking golden cupola, erected by the Muslims. The ‘Rock’ of Mount Moriah is in fact a large horizontal platform known as Temple Mount. The Muslims identify it with El Akasa, the location from which the prophet  
Muhammad was taken aloft by the angel Gabriel through ‘seven heavens’ to meet God
      According to Jewish legend, Jerusalem is the ‘navel of the Earth’ and Mount Moriah the place where Abraham saw ‘a pillar of fire reaching from the Earth to Heaven, and a heavy cloud in which the Glory of God was seen’. The Bible reports that it was here, on the rock of Mount Moriah, that Abraham prepared to sacrifice his son Isaac to God over 4,000 years ago. It was also at this same exact location that the Lord directed Solomon to build the first ‘temple’ to the Lord 3,000 years ago. That temple was destroyed, rebuilt, then destroyed again, and it is now marked by the site of the Muslims’ golden cupola. What could possibly have trig-gered all of these legends to be associated with Jerusalem, and why has it becomes a place of such widespread religious veneration”

                                                               David prepares material for the temple.
First Verse                    
“THEN David said, This is the house of the LORD God, and this is the altar of the burnt-offer-ing for Israel.
2       And David commanded to gather together the strangers that were in the land of Israel; and he set masons to
hew wrought stones to build the house of God.
3       And David prepared iron in abundance for the nails for the doors of the gates, and for the joinings; and brass
          in abundance with-out weight;
4       Also cedar trees in abundance: for the Zidonites and they of Tyre brought much cedar wood to David.
5       And David said, Solomon my son is young and tender, and the house that is to be builded for the LORD
         must be exceeding magnifi-cal, of fame and of glory throughout all countries: I will therefore now make
         preparation for it. So David prepared abundantly before his death.

                                He instructs Solomon in God’s promises, and his duty in building the temple.

6       Then he called for Solomon his son, and charged him to build an house unto the name of the LORD my God
7       And David said to Solomon, My son as for me, it was in my mind to build an house unto the name of the LORD
         my God:
8       But the word of the LORD came to me saying, Thou hast shed blood abundantly, and has made great wars: thou
         shalt not build an house in my name, because thou hast shed much blood upon the earth in my sight.
9       Behold, a son shall be born to thee, who shall be a man of rest; and I will give him rest from all his enemies
         round about: for his name shall be Solomon, and I will give peace and quietness unto Israel in his days.
10     He shall build an house for my name; and he shall be my son, and I will be his father; and I will establish the
         throne of his kingdom over Israel forever.                      
11     Now my son, the LORD be with thee; and prosper thou, and build the house of the LORD thy God, as he
         hath said of thee.
12     Only the LORD give thee wis-dom and understanding, and give thee charge concerning Israel, that thou
         mayest keep the law of the LORD thy God.
13     Then shalt thou prosper, if thou takest heed to fulfil the statutes and judgements which the LORD charged
         Moses with concerning Is-rael be strong and of good courage; dread not or be dismayed.
14     Now behold, in my trouble I have prepared for the house of the LORD an hundred thousand talents of gold
         and a thousand thousand talents of silver; and of brass and iron without weight; for it is in abundance:
         timber also and stone have I prepared; and thou mayest add thereto.
15     Moreover there are workmen with thee in abundance, hewers and workers of stone and timber,

and all manner of cunning men for every manner of work.
16     Of the gold, the silver, and the brass, and the iron, there is no number. Arise therefore, and be doing, and the

         LORD be with thee.

The princes are charged to as-sist Solomon.

17     David also commanded all the princes of Israel to help Solomon his son, saying
18     Is not the LORD your God with you? and hath he not given you rest on every side? for he hath given the
inhabitants of the land into mine hand; and the land is subdued before the LORD, and be-fore his people.
 19   “
Now set your heart and your soul to seek the LORD your God; arise therefore, and build ye the sanctuary

          that is to be built to the name of the LORD.”

Vision of the man with the measuring reed

First Verse                    
       “IN the five and twentieth year of our captivity, in the beginning of the year, in the tenth day of the month,
         in the fourteenth year after that the city was smitten, in the selfsame day the hand of the LORD was upon
         me, and brought me thither
2      In the visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel, and set me upon a very high mountain, by which
was as the frame of a city on the south.
3      And he brought me thither, and, behold, there was a man whose appearance was like the appearance of
        brass, with a line of flax in his hand, and a measuring reed: and he stood in the gate
4      And the man said to me, Son of man, behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears, and set thine heart
        upon all that I shall shew thee; for to the intent that I might shew them unto thee art thou brought hither:
        declare all that thou seest to the house of Israel.

Vision of the future temple.


5      And behold a wall on the out-side of the house round about, and in the man’s hand a measuring reed of six
        cubits long by the cubit and an hand breadth: so he measured the breadth of the building, one reed; and      
        the height, one reed              
6      Then came he unto the gate which looked toward the east. and went up the stairs thereof, and measured the
        threshold of the gate, which was one reed broad; and the other threshold of the gate, which was one     .
        reed broad
7      And every little chamber was one reed long, and one reed broad; and between the little chambers were
cubits; and the threshold of the gate by the porch of the gate within was one reed.

9      Then measured he the porch of the gate, eight cubits; and the posts thereof, two cubits; and the porch of
        the gate was inward.

10    And the little chambers of the gate eastward were three on this side, and three on that side; they three
        were of one measure: and the posts had one measure on this side and on that side.

12    The space also before the little chambers was one cubit on this side, and the space was one cubit on that

13     He measured then the gate from the roof of one little chamber to the roof of another: the breadth was
and twenty cubits, door against door.

15     And from the face of the gate of the entrance unto the face of the porch of the inner gate were fifty

         court round about: thirty chambers were upon the pavement.
18     And the pavement by the side of the gates over against the length of the gates was the lower pave-ment
19     Then he measured the breadth from the forefront of the lower gate unto the forefront of the inner court
         without, an hundred cubits east-ward and northward.
20     And the gate of the outward court that looked toward the north, he measured the length thereof
21     And the little chambers thereof were three on this side and three on that side; and the posts thereof and
         the arches thereof. were after the measure of the first gate: the length thereof was fifty cubits, and the
         breadth five and twenty cubits.
22     And their windows, and their arches, and their palm trees, were after the measure of the gate that    
         looketh toward the east; and they went up to it by seven steps; and the arches thereof were before them.
23     And the gate of the inner court was over against the gate towards the north, and towards the east; and

         these measures;

         measures: and
there were win-dows in it and in the arches there-of round about: it was fifty cubits

35     And he brought me to the

          north gate, and measured it ac-cording to these measures;
36     The little chambers therof, the posts thereof, and the arches thereof, and the windows to it round about:

Alizzed and the scribe, at this juxtoposition of  irrepressible moments, and presently within that temple of temples, could not but help laughing, on the other side of a straight face.
     Am I seeing like a cross eyed cyclops said the bedazzled scribe, constantly repeating repeats.
Time to leave well alone said Zed Aliz, with nary a glance at the remaining sand, and time to make your own judgements scribe.
     So the scribe, never one to blacken the character of all and sundry without good reason, did, in manner bold,  stick, in the main, well more or less, give or take a few, emphasise references to numbers.  
You are a one scribe said Alizzed, ascending once more into the depths.

39      And in the porch of the gate were two tables on this side, and two tables on that side, to slay there-on
          the burnt-offering and the sin-offering and the trespass-offering.
40      And at the side without, as one goeth up to the entry of the north gate, were two tables; and on the other
          side, which was at the porch of the gate, were two tables.
41      Four tables were on this side. and four tables on that side, by the side of the gate; eight tables where-
          upon they slew their sacrifices.
42      And the four tables were of hewn stone for the burnt-offering, of a cubit and an half long, and
          a cubit
and an half broad, and one cubit high: whereupon also they laid the instruments wherewith
          they slew the burnt-offering and the sacrifice”
At this another of those quite essential moments, of that quintessential moment. Alizzed had the scribe, that other

; and their prospect was toward the south: one at the side of the east gate having the prospect
         toward the north.
45     And he said unto me, This chamber, whose prospect is toward the south, is for the priests, the keepers of

46     And the chamber whose pros-pect is toward the north is for the priests, the keepers of the charge of the

49     The length of the porch was twenty cubits, and the breadth eleven cubits; and he brought me by the steps

Description of the temple.

First verse
         “AFTERWARD he brought me to the temple, and measured the posts, six cubits broad on the one side, and
cubits broad on the one side, which was the breadth of the tabernacle.
2       And the breadth of the door was ten cubits; and the sides of the door were five cubits on the one side, and
cubits on the other side: and he measured the length thereof, forty cubits: and the breadth, twenty
3       Then went he inward, and measured the post of the door, two cubits; and the door six cubits; and the
         breadth of the door, seven cubits.
4       So he measured the length thereof, twenty cubits; and the breadth, twenty cubits, before the temple: and he
         said unto me, This is the most holy place.
5       After he measured the wall of the house, six cubits; and the breadth of every side chamber, four cubits,
         round about the house on every side.
       And the side chambers were three, one over another, and thirty in order; and they entered into the wall
         which was of the house for the side chambers round about, that they might have hold, but they had not    
         hold in the wall of the house.
7       And there was an enlarging, and a winding about still upward to the side chambers: for the wind-ing about
         of the house went still upward round about the house: therefore the breadth of the house  

/ Page 888   /  

         was still upward, and so increased from the lowest chamber to the highest by the midst.
8       I saw also the height of the house round about: the foundations of the side chambers were a full reed of six
         great cubits.
9       The thickness of the wall, which was for the side chamber with-out, was five cubits: and that which was
         left was the place of the side chambers that were within
10     And between the chambers was the wideness of twenty cubits round about the house on every side.
11     And the doors of the side chambers were toward the place that was left, one door toward the north, and
         another door toward the south: and the breadth of the place that was left was five cubits round about.
12     Now the building that was be-fore the separate place at the end toward the west was seventy cubits broad:
and the wall of the building was five cubits thick round about. and the length thereof ninety cubits.
13     So he measured the house, an hundred cubits long; and the sep-arate place, and the building, with the    
         walls thereof, an hundred cubits long;
14     Also the breadth of the face of the house, and of the separate place toward the east, an hundred cubits.
15     And he measured the length of the building over against the sep-arate place which was behind it,
         and the galleries thereof on the one side and on the other side, an hun-dred cubits, with the inner temple,
         and the porches of the court;
16     The door posts, and the narrow windows, and the galleries round about on their three stories, over against
         the door, cieled with wood round about, and from the ground up to the windows, and the windows were
17     To that above the door, even unto the inner house, and without, and by all the wall round about within
         and without by measure.
18    And it was made with cher-ubims and palm trees, so that a palm tree, was between a cherub and a cherub;
        and every cherub had two faces;
19    So that the face of a man was toward the palm tree on the one side, and the face of a young lion toward
        the palm tree on the other side: it was made through all the house round about.
20    From the ground unto above the door were cherubims and palm trees made, and on the wall of the temple.
21    The posts of the temple were squared, and the face of the sanc-tuary; the appearance of the one as
        the appearance of the other.”
Once again the Alizzed had the scribe count the number of letters in the echo of repeated words
the appearance of the
one as
  3           10         2   3
appearance of the other   3 + 10 + 2 + 3 = 18 x 2 = 36  3 + 6 = 9
  3           10         2   3
The scribe also recorded that number of letters contained in the words
9 and cherub 6
then writ,
      cherubims  9    cherub  6  x 3 = 18 x and every cherub had two faces
20      cherubims  9
