    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:2

    La Casa que el rey Salomón edificó al SEÑOR, tuvo sesenta codos de largo y veinte de ancho, y treinta codos de alto.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 6:2

    Verse 2. The length thereof was threescore
    cubits] A cubit, according to Bishop Cumberland, is 21 inches, and 888 decimals, or 1 foot, 9 inches, and 888 decimals. Yds. Ft. Inch. According to this, the length, 60 cubits, was 36 1 5.28 The breadth, 20 cubits, was 12 0 5.76 The height, 30 cubits, was 18 0 8.64 This constituted what was called the temple or house, the house of God, &c. But, besides this, there were courts and colonnades, where the people might assemble to perform their devotions and assist at the sacrifices, without being exposed to the open air. The court surrounded the temple, or holy place, into which the priests alone entered. Sometimes the whole of the building is called the temple; at other times that, the measurement of which is given above. But as no proper account can be given of such a building in notes; and as there is a great variety of opinion concerning the temple, its structure, ornaments, &c., as mentioned in the books of Kings and Chronicles, in Ezekiel, and by Josephus; and as modern writers, such as Vilalpandus, Dr. Lightfoot, and Dr. Prideaux, professing to be guided by the same principles, have produced very different buildings; I think it best to hazard nothing on the subject, but give that description at the end of the chapter which Calmet with great pains and industry has collected: at the same time, pledging myself to no particular form or appearance, as I find I cannot give any thing as the likeness of Solomon's temple which I could say, either in honour or conscience, bears any affinity to it. For other particulars I must refer the reader to the three large volumes of Vilalpandus, Dr. Lightfoot's Works, and to the Connections of Dr. Prideaux.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. And the
    house which King Solomon built for the Lord , etc.] For his worship, honour, and glory: the length thereof [was] threescore cubits ; sixty cubits from east to west, including the holy place and the most holy place; the holy place was forty cubits, and the most holy place twenty; the same measure, as to length, Eupolemus, an Heathen writer f89 , gives of the temple, but is mistaken in the other measures: and the breadth thereof twenty [cubits] ; from north to south: and the height thereof thirty cubits ; this must be understood of the holy place, for the oracle or most holy place was but twenty cubits high, ( Kings 6:20); though the holy place, with the chambers that were over it, which were ninety cubits, three stories high, was in all an hundred twenty cubits, ( 2 Chronicles 3:4); some restrain it to the porch only, which stood at the end, like one of our high steeples, as they think.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-10 - The
    temple is called the house of the Lord, because it was directed an modelled by him, and was to be employed in his service. This gave in the beauty of holiness, that it was the house of the Lord, which wa far beyond all other beauties. It was to be the temple of the God of peace, therefore no iron tool must be heard; quietness and silence sui and help religious exercises. God's work should be done with much car and little noise. Clamour and violence often hinder, but never furthe the work of God. Thus the kingdom of God in the heart of man grows u in silence, Mr 5:27.
