1 Kings 9:3

9:3 The Lord said to him, “I have answered 1  your prayer and your request for help that you made to me. I have consecrated this temple you built by making it my permanent home; 2  I will be constantly present there. 3 

1 Kings 9:7

9:7 then I will remove Israel from the land 4  I have given them, I will abandon this temple I have consecrated with my presence, 5  and Israel will be mocked and ridiculed 6  among all the nations.

1 tn Heb “I have heard.”

2 tn Heb “by placing my name there perpetually” (or perhaps, “forever”).

3 tn Heb “and my eyes and my heart will be there all the days.”

4 tn Heb “I will cut off Israel from upon the surface of the land.”

5 tn Heb “and the temple which I consecrated for my name I will send away from before my face.”

sn Instead of “I will send away,” the parallel text in 2 Chr 7:20 has “I will throw away.” The two verbs sound very similar in Hebrew, so the discrepancy is likely due to an oral transmissional error.

6 tn Heb “will become a proverb and a taunt,” that is, a proverbial example of destruction and an object of reproach.
