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>_.
