He also made windows with beveled frames[a] for the temple.(A)

He then built a chambered structure[b] along the temple wall, encircling the walls of the temple, that is, the sanctuary and the inner sanctuary.(B) And he made side chambers[c] all around.(C) The lowest chamber was 7½ feet[d] wide, the middle was nine feet[e] wide, and the third was 10½ feet[f] wide. He also provided offset ledges for the temple all around the outside so that nothing would be inserted into the temple walls.
