1 Kings 8

Then Solomon
<08010>
assembled
<06950> (8686)
the elders
<02205>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and all the heads
<07218>
of the tribes
<04294>_,
the chief
<05387>
of the fathers
<01>
of the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
unto king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_,
that they might bring up
<05927> (8687)
the ark
<0727>
of the covenant
<01285>
of the LORD
<03068>
out of the city
<05892>
of David
<01732>_,
which [is] Zion
<06726>_.
{chief: Heb. princes}
And all the men
<0376>
of Israel
<03478>
assembled
<06950> (8735)
themselves unto king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>
at the feast
<02282>
in the month
<03391>
Ethanim
<0388>_,
which [is] the seventh
<07637>
month
<02320>_.
And all the elders
<02205>
of Israel
<03478>
came
<0935> (8799)_,
and the priests
<03548>
took up
<05375> (8799)
the ark
<0727>_.
And they brought up
<05927> (8686)
the ark
<0727>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and the tabernacle
<0168>
of the congregation
<04150>_,
and all the holy
<06944>
vessels
<03627>
that [were] in the tabernacle
<0168>_,
even those did the priests
<03548>
and the Levites
<03881>
bring up
<05927> (8686)_.
And king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>_,
and all the congregation
<05712>
of Israel
<03478>_,
that were assembled
<03259> (8737)
unto him, [were] with him before
<06440>
the ark
<0727>_,
sacrificing
<02076> (8764)
sheep
<06629>
and oxen
<01241>_,
that could not be told
<05608> (8735)
nor numbered
<04487> (8735)
for multitude
<07230>_.
And the priests
<03548>
brought in
<0935> (8686)
the ark
<0727>
of the covenant
<01285>
of the LORD
<03068>
unto his place
<04725>_,
into the oracle
<01687>
of the house
<01004>_,
to the most
<06944>
holy
<06944>
[place, even] under the wings
<03671>
of the cherubims
<03742>_.
For the cherubims
<03742>
spread forth
<06566> (8802)
[their] two wings
<03671>
over the place
<04725>
of the ark
<0727>_,
and the cherubims
<03742>
covered
<05526> (8799)
the ark
<0727>
and the staves
<0905>
thereof above
<04605>_.
And they drew out
<0748> (8686)
the staves
<0905>_,
that the ends
<07218>
of the staves
<0905>
were seen out
<07200> (8735)
in the holy
<06944>
[place] before
<06440>
the oracle
<01687>_,
and they were not seen
<07200> (8735)
without
<02351>_:
and there they are unto this day
<03117>_.
{ends: Heb. heads} {holy...: or, ark}
[There was] nothing in the ark
<0727>
save
<07535>
the two
<08147>
tables
<03871>
of stone
<068>_,
which Moses
<04872>
put
<03240> (8689)
there at Horeb
<02722>_,
when the LORD
<03068>
made
<03772> (8804)
[a covenant] with the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
when they came out
<03318> (8800)
of the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_.
{when the: or, where the}
And it came to pass, when the priests
<03548>
were come out
<03318> (8800)
of the holy
<06944>
[place], that the cloud
<06051>
filled
<04390> (8804)
the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
So that the priests
<03548>
could
<03201> (8804)
not stand
<05975> (8800)
to minister
<08334> (8763)
because
<06440>
of the cloud
<06051>_:
for the glory
<03519>
of the LORD
<03068>
had filled
<04390> (8804)
the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
Then spake
<0559> (8804)
Solomon
<08010>_,
The LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8804)
that he would dwell
<07931> (8800)
in the thick darkness
<06205>_.
I have surely
<01129> (8800)
built
<01129> (8804)
thee an house
<01004>
to dwell in
<02073>_,
a settled place
<04349>
for thee to abide in
<03427> (8800)
for ever
<05769>_.
And the king
<04428>
turned
<05437> (0)
his face
<06440>
about
<05437> (8686)_,
and blessed
<01288> (8762)
all the congregation
<06951>
of Israel
<03478>_:
(and all the congregation
<06951>
of Israel
<03478>
stood
<05975> (8802);)
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Blessed
<01288> (8803)
[be] the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
which spake
<01696> (8765)
with his mouth
<06310>
unto David
<01732>
my father
<01>_,
and hath with his hand
<03027>
fulfilled
<04390> (8765)
[it], saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Since the day
<03117>
that I brought forth
<03318> (8689)
my people
<05971>
Israel
<03478>
out of Egypt
<04714>_,
I chose
<0977> (8804)
no city
<05892>
out of all the tribes
<07626>
of Israel
<03478>
to build
<01129> (8800)
an house
<01004>_,
that my name
<08034>
might be therein; but I chose
<0977> (8799)
David
<01732>
to be over my people
<05971>
Israel
<03478>_.
And it was in the heart
<03824>
of David
<01732>
my father
<01>
to build
<01129> (8800)
an house
<01004>
for the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto David
<01732>
my father
<01>_,
Whereas
<03282> <0834>
it was in thine heart
<03824>
to build
<01129> (8800)
an house
<01004>
unto my name
<08034>_,
thou didst well
<02895> (8689)
that it was in thine heart
<03824>_.
Nevertheless
<07535>
thou shalt not build
<01129> (8799)
the house
<01004>_;
but thy son
<01121>
that shall come forth out
<03318> (8802)
of thy loins
<02504>_,
he shall build
<01129> (8799)
the house
<01004>
unto my name
<08034>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
hath performed
<06965> (8686)
his word
<01697>
that he spake
<01696> (8765)_,
and I am risen up
<06965> (8799)
in the room of David
<01732>
my father
<01>_,
and sit
<03427> (8799)
on the throne
<03678>
of Israel
<03478>_,
as the LORD
<03068>
promised
<01696> (8765)_,
and have built
<01129> (8799)
an house
<01004>
for the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_.
And I have set
<07760> (8799)
there a place
<04725>
for the ark
<0727>_,
wherein [is] the covenant
<01285>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
which he made
<03772> (8804)
with our fathers
<01>_,
when he brought them out
<03318> (8687)
of the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_.
And Solomon
<08010>
stood
<05975> (8799)
before
<06440>
the altar
<04196>
of the LORD
<03068>
in the presence of
<05048>
all the congregation
<06951>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and spread forth
<06566> (8799)
his hands
<03709>
toward heaven
<08064>_:
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
[there is] no God
<0430>
like thee, in heaven
<08064>
above
<04605>_,
or on earth
<0776>
beneath, who keepest
<08104> (8802)
covenant
<01285>
and mercy
<02617>
with thy servants
<05650>
that walk
<01980> (8802)
before
<06440>
thee with all their heart
<03820>_:
Who hast kept
<08104> (8804)
with thy servant
<05650>
David
<01732>
my father
<01>
that thou promisedst
<01696> (8765)
him: thou spakest
<01696> (8762)
also with thy mouth
<06310>_,
and hast fulfilled
<04390> (8765)
[it] with thine hand
<03027>_,
as [it is] this day
<03117>_.
Therefore now, LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
keep
<08104> (8798)
with thy servant
<05650>
David
<01732>
my father
<01>
that thou promisedst
<01696> (8765)
him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
There shall not fail
<03772> (8735)
thee a man
<0376>
in my sight
<06440>
to sit
<03427> (8802)
on the throne
<03678>
of Israel
<03478>_;
so
<07535>
that thy children
<01121>
take heed
<08104> (8799)
to their way
<01870>_,
that they walk
<03212> (8800)
before
<06440>
me as thou hast walked
<01980> (8804)
before
<06440>
me. {fail...: Heb. be cut off unto thee a man from my sight} {so that: Heb. only if}
And now, O God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
let thy word
<01697>_,
I pray thee, be verified
<0539> (8735)_,
which thou spakest
<01696> (8765)
unto thy servant
<05650>
David
<01732>
my father
<01>_.
But will God
<0430>
indeed
<0552>
dwell
<03427> (8799)
on the earth
<0776>_?
behold, the heaven
<08064>
and heaven
<08064>
of heavens
<08064>
cannot contain
<03557> (8770)
thee; how much less
<0637>
this house
<01004>
that I have builded
<01129> (8804)_?
Yet have thou respect
<06437> (8804)
unto the prayer
<08605>
of thy servant
<05650>_,
and to his supplication
<08467>_,
O LORD
<03068>
my God
<0430>_,
to hearken
<08085> (8800)
unto the cry
<07440>
and to the prayer
<08605>_,
which thy servant
<05650>
prayeth
<06419> (8693)
before
<06440>
thee to day
<03117>_:
That thine eyes
<05869>
may be open
<06605> (8803)
toward this house
<01004>
night
<03915>
and day
<03117>_,
[even] toward the place
<04725>
of which thou hast said
<0559> (8804)_,
My name
<08034>
shall be there: that thou mayest hearken
<08085> (8800)
unto the prayer
<08605>
which thy servant
<05650>
shall make
<06419> (8691)
toward this place
<04725>_.
{toward this place: or, in this place}
And hearken
<08085> (8804)
thou to the supplication
<08467>
of thy servant
<05650>_,
and of thy people
<05971>
Israel
<03478>_,
when they shall pray
<06419> (8691)
toward this place
<04725>_:
and hear
<08085> (8799)
thou in heaven
<08064>
thy dwelling
<03427> (8800)
place
<04725>_:
and when thou hearest
<08085> (8804)_,
forgive
<05545> (8804)_.
{toward this place: or, in this place}
If any man
<0376>
trespass
<02398> (8799)
against his neighbour
<07453>_,
and an oath
<0423>
be laid
<05375> (8804)
upon him to cause him to swear
<0422> (8687)_,
and the oath
<0423>
come
<0935> (8804)
before
<06440>
thine altar
<04196>
in this house
<01004>_:
{and an oath...: Heb. and he require an oath of him}
Then hear
<08085> (8799)
thou in heaven
<08064>_,
and do
<06213> (8804)_,
and judge
<08199> (8804)
thy servants
<05650>_,
condemning
<07561> (8687)
the wicked
<07563>_,
to bring
<05414> (8800)
his way
<01870>
upon his head
<07218>_;
and justifying
<06663> (8687)
the righteous
<06662>_,
to give
<05414> (8800)
him according to his righteousness
<06666>_.
When thy people
<05971>
Israel
<03478>
be smitten down
<05062> (8736)
before
<06440>
the enemy
<0341> (8802)_,
because they have sinned
<02398> (8799)
against thee, and shall turn again
<07725> (8804)
to thee, and confess
<03034> (8689)
thy name
<08034>_,
and pray
<06419> (8694)_,
and make supplication
<02603> (8694)
unto thee in this house
<01004>_:
{in: or, toward}
Then hear
<08085> (8799)
thou in heaven
<08064>_,
and forgive
<05545> (8804)
the sin
<02403>
of thy people
<05971>
Israel
<03478>_,
and bring them again
<07725> (8689)
unto the land
<0127>
which thou gavest
<05414> (8804)
unto their fathers
<01>_.
When heaven
<08064>
is shut up
<06113> (8736)_,
and there is no rain
<04306>_,
because they have sinned
<02398> (8799)
against thee; if they pray
<06419> (8694)
toward this place
<04725>_,
and confess
<03034> (8689)
thy name
<08034>_,
and turn
<07725> (8799)
from their sin
<02403>_,
when thou afflictest
<06031> (8686)
them:
Then hear
<08085> (8799)
thou in heaven
<08064>_,
and forgive
<05545> (8804)
the sin
<02403>
of thy servants
<05650>_,
and of thy people
<05971>
Israel
<03478>_,
that thou teach
<03384> (8686)
them the good
<02896>
way
<01870>
wherein they should walk
<03212> (8799)_,
and give
<05414> (8804)
rain
<04306>
upon thy land
<0776>_,
which thou hast given
<05414> (8804)
to thy people
<05971>
for an inheritance
<05159>_.
If there be in the land
<0776>
famine
<07458>_,
if there be pestilence
<01698>_,
blasting
<07711>_,
mildew
<03420>_,
locust
<0697>_,
[or] if there be caterpiller
<02625>_;
if their enemy
<0341> (8802)
besiege
<06887> (8686)
them in the land
<0776>
of their cities
<08179>_;
whatsoever plague
<05061>_,
whatsoever sickness
<04245>
[there be]; {cities: or, jurisdiction}
What prayer
<08605>
and supplication
<08467>
soever be [made] by any man
<0120>_,
[or] by all thy people
<05971>
Israel
<03478>_,
which shall know
<03045> (8799)
every man
<0376>
the plague
<05061>
of his own heart
<03824>_,
and spread forth
<06566> (8804)
his hands
<03709>
toward this house
<01004>_:
Then hear
<08085> (8799)
thou in heaven
<08064>
thy dwelling
<03427> (8800)
place
<04349>_,
and forgive
<05545> (8804)_,
and do
<06213> (8804)_,
and give
<05414> (8804)
to every man
<0376>
according to his ways
<01870>_,
whose heart
<03824>
thou knowest
<03045> (8799)_;
(for thou, [even] thou only, knowest
<03045> (8804)
the hearts
<03824>
of all the children
<01121>
of men
<0120>;)
That they may fear
<03372> (8799)
thee all the days
<03117>
that they live
<02416>
in
<06440>
the land
<0127>
which thou gavest
<05414> (8804)
unto our fathers
<01>_.
Moreover concerning a stranger
<05237>_,
that [is] not of thy people
<05971>
Israel
<03478>_,
but cometh out
<0935> (8804)
of a far
<07350>
country
<0776>
for
<04616>
thy name's
<08034>
sake;
(For they shall hear
<08085> (8799)
of thy great
<01419>
name
<08034>_,
and of thy strong
<02389>
hand
<03027>_,
and of thy stretched out
<05186> (8803)
arm
<02220>;)
when he shall come
<0935> (8804)
and pray
<06419> (8694)
toward this house
<01004>_;
Hear
<08085> (8799)
thou in heaven
<08064>
thy dwelling
<03427> (8800)
place
<04349>_,
and do
<06213> (8804)
according to all that the stranger
<05237>
calleth
<07121> (8799)
to thee for: that all people
<05971>
of the earth
<0776>
may know
<03045> (8799)
thy name
<08034>_,
to fear
<03372> (8800)
thee, as [do] thy people
<05971>
Israel
<03478>_;
and that they may know
<03045> (8800)
that this house
<01004>_,
which I have builded
<01129> (8804)_,
is called
<07121> (8738)
by thy name
<08034>_.
{this...: Heb. thy name is called upon this house}
If thy people
<05971>
go out
<03318> (8799)
to battle
<04421>
against their enemy
<0341> (8802)_,
whithersoever
<01870>
thou shalt send
<07971> (8799)
them, and shall pray
<06419> (8694)
unto the LORD
<03068>
toward
<01870>
the city
<05892>
which thou hast chosen
<0977> (8804)_,
and [toward] the house
<01004>
that I have built
<01129> (8804)
for thy name
<08034>_:
{toward the city: Heb. the way of the city}
Then hear
<08085> (8804)
thou in heaven
<08064>
their prayer
<08605>
and their supplication
<08467>_,
and maintain
<06213> (8804)
their cause
<04941>_.
{cause: or, right}
If they sin
<02398> (8799)
against thee, (for [there is] no man
<0120>
that sinneth
<02398> (8799)
not,) and thou be angry
<0599> (8804)
with them, and deliver
<05414> (8804)
them to the enemy
<0341> (8802)_,
so that they carry them away
<07617> (8804)
captives
<07617> (8802)
unto
<06440>
the land
<0776>
of the enemy
<0341> (8802)_,
far
<07350>
or near
<07138>_;
[Yet] if they shall bethink
<07725> (8689)
themselves in the land
<0776>
whither they were carried captives
<07617> (8738)_,
and repent
<07725> (8804) <03820>_,
and make supplication
<02603> (8694)
unto thee in the land
<0776>
of them that carried them captives
<07617> (8802)_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
We have sinned
<02398> (8804)_,
and have done perversely
<05753> (8689)_,
we have committed wickedness
<07561> (8804)_;
{bethink...: Heb. bring back to their heart}
And [so] return
<07725> (8804)
unto thee with all their heart
<03824>_,
and with all their soul
<05315>_,
in the land
<0776>
of their enemies
<0341> (8802)_,
which led them away captive
<07617> (8804)_,
and pray
<06419> (8694)
unto thee toward
<01870>
their land
<0776>_,
which thou gavest
<05414> (8804)
unto their fathers
<01>_,
the city
<05892>
which thou hast chosen
<0977> (8804)_,
and the house
<01004>
which I have built
<01129> (8804)
for thy name
<08034>_:
Then hear
<08085> (8804)
thou their prayer
<08605>
and their supplication
<08467>
in heaven
<08064>
thy dwelling
<03427> (8800)
place
<04349>_,
and maintain
<06213> (8804)
their cause
<04941>_,
{cause: or, right}
And forgive
<05545> (8804)
thy people
<05971>
that have sinned
<02398> (8804)
against thee, and all their transgressions
<06588>
wherein they have transgressed
<06586> (8804)
against thee, and give
<05414> (8804)
them compassion
<07356>
before
<06440>
them who carried them captive
<07617> (8802)_,
that they may have compassion
<07355> (8765)
on them:
For they [be] thy people
<05971>_,
and thine inheritance
<05159>_,
which thou broughtest forth
<03318> (8689)
out of Egypt
<04714>_,
from the midst
<08432>
of the furnace
<03564>
of iron
<01270>_:
That thine eyes
<05869>
may be open
<06605> (8803)
unto the supplication
<08467>
of thy servant
<05650>_,
and unto the supplication
<08467>
of thy people
<05971>
Israel
<03478>_,
to hearken
<08085> (8800)
unto them in all that they call
<07121> (8800)
for unto thee.
For thou didst separate
<0914> (8689)
them from among all the people
<05971>
of the earth
<0776>_,
[to be] thine inheritance
<05159>_,
as thou spakest
<01696> (8765)
by the hand
<03027>
of Moses
<04872>
thy servant
<05650>_,
when thou broughtest
<03318> (8687)
our fathers
<01>
out of Egypt
<04714>_,
O Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_.
And it was [so], that when Solomon
<08010>
had made an end
<03615> (8763)
of praying
<06419> (8692)
all this prayer
<08605>
and supplication
<08467>
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
he arose
<06965> (8804)
from before
<06440>
the altar
<04196>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
from kneeling
<03766> (8800)
on his knees
<01290>
with his hands
<03709>
spread up
<06566> (8803)
to heaven
<08064>_.
And he stood
<05975> (8799)_,
and blessed
<01288> (8762)
all the congregation
<06951>
of Israel
<03478>
with a loud
<01419>
voice
<06963>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Blessed
<01288> (8803)
[be] the LORD
<03068>_,
that hath given
<05414> (8804)
rest
<04496>
unto his people
<05971>
Israel
<03478>_,
according to all that he promised
<01696> (8765)_:
there hath not failed
<05307> (8804)
one
<0259>
word
<01697>
of all his good
<02896>
promise
<01697>_,
which he promised
<01696> (8765)
by the hand
<03027>
of Moses
<04872>
his servant
<05650>_.
{failed: Heb. fallen}
The LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>
be with us, as he was with our fathers
<01>_:
let him not leave
<05800> (8799)
us, nor forsake
<05203> (8799)
us:
That he may incline
<05186> (8687)
our hearts
<03824>
unto him, to walk
<03212> (8800)
in all his ways
<01870>_,
and to keep
<08104> (8800)
his commandments
<04687>_,
and his statutes
<02706>_,
and his judgments
<04941>_,
which he commanded
<06680> (8765)
our fathers
<01>_.
And let these my words
<01697>_,
wherewith I have made supplication
<02603> (8694)
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_,
be nigh
<07138>
unto the LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>
day
<03119>
and night
<03915>_,
that he maintain
<06213> (8800)
the cause
<04941>
of his servant
<05650>_,
and the cause
<04941>
of his people
<05971>
Israel
<03478>
at all times
<03117> <03117>_,
as the matter
<01697>
shall require: {at all...: Heb. the thing of a day in his day}
That all the people
<05971>
of the earth
<0776>
may know
<03045> (8800)
that the LORD
<03068>
[is] God
<0430>_,
[and that there is] none else.
Let your heart
<03824>
therefore be perfect
<08003>
with the LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>_,
to walk
<03212> (8800)
in his statutes
<02706>_,
and to keep
<08104> (8800)
his commandments
<04687>_,
as at this day
<03117>_.
And the king
<04428>_,
and all Israel
<03478>
with him, offered
<02076> (8802)
sacrifice
<02077>
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_.
And Solomon
<08010>
offered
<02076> (8799)
a sacrifice
<02077>
of peace offerings
<08002>_,
which he offered
<02076> (8804)
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
two
<08147>
and twenty
<06242>
thousand
<0505>
oxen
<01241>_,
and an hundred
<03967>
and twenty
<06242>
thousand
<0505>
sheep
<06629>_.
So the king
<04428>
and all the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
dedicated
<02596> (8799)
the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
The same day
<03117>
did the king
<04428>
hallow
<06942> (8765)
the middle
<08432>
of the court
<02691>
that [was] before
<06440>
the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_:
for there he offered
<06213> (8804)
burnt offerings
<05930>_,
and meat offerings
<04503>_,
and the fat
<02459>
of the peace offerings
<08002>_:
because the brasen
<05178>
altar
<04196>
that [was] before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>
[was] too little
<06996>
to receive
<03557> (8687)
the burnt offerings
<05930>_,
and meat offerings
<04503>_,
and the fat
<02459>
of the peace offerings
<08002>_.
And at that time
<06256>
Solomon
<08010>
held
<06213> (8799)
a feast
<02282>_,
and all Israel
<03478>
with him, a great
<01419>
congregation
<06951>_,
from the entering
<0935> (8800)
in of Hamath
<02574>
unto the river
<05158>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>_,
seven
<07651>
days
<03117>
and seven
<07651>
days
<03117>_,
[even] fourteen
<0702> <06240>
days
<03117>_.
On the eighth
<08066>
day
<03117>
he sent
<07971> (0)
the people
<05971>
away
<07971> (8765)_:
and they blessed
<01288> (8762)
the king
<04428>_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
unto their tents
<0168>
joyful
<08056>
and glad
<02896>
of heart
<03820>
for all the goodness
<02896>
that the LORD
<03068>
had done
<06213> (8804)
for David
<01732>
his servant
<05650>_,
and for Israel
<03478>
his people
<05971>_.
{blessed: or, thanked}
