Chapter 8

  1. 1. Then Solomon
    H8010
    assembled
    H6950
    the elders
    H2205
    of Israel,
    H3478
    and all the heads
    H7218
    of the tribes,
    H4294
    the chief
    H5387
    of the fathers
    H1
    of the children
    H1121
    of Israel,
    H3478
    unto king
    H4428
    Solomon
    H8010
    in Jerusalem,
    H3389
    that they might bring up
    H5927
    the ark
    H727
    of the covenant
    H1285
    of the LORD
    H3068
    out of the city
    H5892
    of David,
    H1732
    which is Zion.
    H6726
  2. 2. And all the men
    H376
    of Israel
    H3478
    assembled
    H6950
    themselves unto king
    H4428
    Solomon
    H8010
    at the feast
    H2282
    in the month
    H3391
    Ethanim,
    H388
    which is the seventh
    H7637
    month.
    H2320
  3. 3. And all the elders
    H2205
    of Israel
    H3478
    came,
    H935
    and the priests
    H3548
    took up
    H5375
    the ark.
    H727
  4. 4. And they brought up
    H5927
    the ark
    H727
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    and the tabernacle
    H168
    of the congregation,
    H4150
    and all the holy
    H6944
    vessels
    H3627
    that were in the tabernacle,
    H168
    even those did the priests
    H3548
    and the Levites
    H3881
    bring up.
    H5927
  5. 5. And king
    H4428
    Solomon,
    H8010
    and all the congregation
    H5712
    of Israel,
    H3478
    that were assembled
    H3259
    unto him, were with him before
    H6440
    the ark,
    H727
    sacrificing
    H2076
    sheep
    H6629
    and oxen,
    H1241
    that could not be told
    H5608
    nor numbered
    H4487
    for multitude.
    H7230
  6. 6. And the priests
    H3548
    brought in
    H935
    the ark
    H727
    of the covenant
    H1285
    of the LORD
    H3068
    unto his place,
    H4725
    into the oracle
    H1687
    of the house,
    H1004
    to the most
    H6944
    holy
    H6944
    place, even under the wings
    H3671
    of the cherubims.
    H3742
  7. 7. For the cherubims
    H3742
    spread forth
    H6566
    their two wings
    H3671
    over the place
    H4725
    of the ark,
    H727
    and the cherubims
    H3742
    covered
    H5526
    the ark
    H727
    and the staves
    H905
    thereof above.
    H4605
  8. 8. And they drew out
    H748
    the staves,
    H905
    that the ends
    H7218
    of the staves
    H905
    were seen out
    H7200
    in the holy
    H6944
    place before
    H6440
    the oracle,
    H1687
    and they were not seen
    H7200
    without:
    H2351
    and there they are unto this day.
    H3117
  9. 9. There was nothing in the ark
    H727
    save
    H7535
    the two
    H8147
    tables
    H3871
    of stone,
    H68
    which Moses
    H4872
    put
    H3240
    there at Horeb,
    H2722
    when the LORD
    H3068
    made
    H3772
    a covenant with the children
    H1121
    of Israel,
    H3478
    when they came out
    H3318
    of the land
    H776
    of Egypt.
    H4714
  10. 10. And it came to pass, when the priests
    H3548
    were come out
    H3318
    of the holy
    H6944
    place, that the cloud
    H6051
    filled
    H4390
    the house
    H1004
    of the LORD,
    H3068
  11. 11. So that the priests
    H3548
    could
    H3201
    not stand
    H5975
    to minister
    H8334
    because
    H6440
    of the cloud:
    H6051
    for the glory
    H3519
    of the LORD
    H3068
    had filled
    H4390
    the house
    H1004
    of the LORD.
    H3068
  12. 12. Then spake
    H559
    Solomon,
    H8010
    The LORD
    H3068
    said
    H559
    that he would dwell
    H7931
    in the thick darkness.
    H6205
  13. 13. I have surely
    H1129
    built
    H1129
    thee an house
    H1004
    to dwell in,
    H2073
    a settled place
    H4349
    for thee to abide in
    H3427
    for ever.
    H5769
  14. 14. And the king
    H4428
    turned
    H5437
    his face
    H6440
    about,
    H5437
    and blessed
    H1288
    all the congregation
    H6951
    of Israel:
    H3478
    (and all the congregation
    H6951
    of Israel
    H3478
    stood;)
    H5975
  15. 15. And he said,
    H559
    Blessed
    H1288
    be the LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Israel,
    H3478
    which spake
    H1696
    with his mouth
    H6310
    unto David
    H1732
    my father,
    H1
    and hath with his hand
    H3027
    fulfilled
    H4390
    it, saying,
    H559
  16. 16. Since the day
    H3117
    that I brought forth
    H3318
    my people
    H5971
    Israel
    H3478
    out of Egypt,
    H4714
    I chose
    H977
    no city
    H5892
    out of all the tribes
    H7626
    of Israel
    H3478
    to build
    H1129
    an house,
    H1004
    that my name
    H8034
    might be therein; but I chose
    H977
    David
    H1732
    to be over my people
    H5971
    Israel.
    H3478
  17. 17. And it was in the heart
    H3824
    of David
    H1732
    my father
    H1
    to build
    H1129
    an house
    H1004
    for the name
    H8034
    of the LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Israel.
    H3478
  18. 18. And the LORD
    H3068
    said
    H559
    unto David
    H1732
    my father,
    H1
    Whereas
    H834
    it
    H3282
    was in thine heart
    H3824
    to build
    H1129
    an house
    H1004
    unto my name,
    H8034
    thou didst well
    H2895
    that it was in thine heart.
    H3824
  19. 19. Nevertheless
    H7535
    thou shalt not build
    H1129
    the house;
    H1004
    but thy son
    H1121
    that shall come forth out
    H3318
    of thy loins,
    H2504
    he shall build
    H1129
    the house
    H1004
    unto my name.
    H8034
  20. 20. And the LORD
    H3068
    hath performed
    H6965
    his word
    H1697
    that he spake,
    H1696
    and I am risen up
    H6965
    in the room of David
    H1732
    my father,
    H1
    and sit
    H3427
    on the throne
    H3678
    of Israel,
    H3478
    as the LORD
    H3068
    promised,
    H1696
    and have built
    H1129
    an house
    H1004
    for the name
    H8034
    of the LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Israel.
    H3478
  21. 21. And I have set
    H7760
    there a place
    H4725
    for the ark,
    H727
    wherein is the covenant
    H1285
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    which he made
    H3772
    with our fathers,
    H1
    when he brought them out
    H3318
    of the land
    H776
    of Egypt.
    H4714
  22. 22. And Solomon
    H8010
    stood
    H5975
    before
    H6440
    the altar
    H4196
    of the LORD
    H3068
    in the presence of
    H5048
    all the congregation
    H6951
    of Israel,
    H3478
    and spread forth
    H6566
    his hands
    H3709
    toward heaven:
    H8064
  23. 23. And he said,
    H559
    LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Israel,
    H3478
    there is no God
    H430
    like thee, in heaven
    H8064
    above,
    H4605
    or on earth
    H776
    beneath, who keepest
    H8104
    covenant
    H1285
    and mercy
    H2617
    with thy servants
    H5650
    that walk
    H1980
    before
    H6440
    thee with all their heart:
    H3820
  24. 24. Who hast kept
    H8104
    with thy servant
    H5650
    David
    H1732
    my father
    H1
    that thou promisedst
    H1696
    him: thou spakest
    H1696
    also with thy mouth,
    H6310
    and hast fulfilled
    H4390
    it with thine hand,
    H3027
    as it is this day.
    H3117
  25. 25. Therefore now, LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Israel,
    H3478
    keep
    H8104
    with thy servant
    H5650
    David
    H1732
    my father
    H1
    that thou promisedst
    H1696
    him, saying,
    H559
    There shall not fail
    H3772
    thee a man
    H376
    in my sight
    H6440
    to sit
    H3427
    on the throne
    H3678
    of Israel;
    H3478
    so
    H7535
    that thy children
    H1121
    take heed
    H8104
    to their way,
    H1870
    that they walk
    H3212
    before
    H6440
    me as thou hast walked
    H1980
    before
    H6440
    me.
  26. 26. And now, O God
    H430
    of Israel,
    H3478
    let thy word,
    H1697
    I pray thee, be verified,
    H539
    which thou spakest
    H1696
    unto thy servant
    H5650
    David
    H1732
    my father.
    H1
  27. 27. But will God
    H430
    indeed
    H552
    dwell
    H3427
    on the earth?
    H776
    behold, the heaven
    H8064
    and heaven
    H8064
    of heavens
    H8064
    cannot contain
    H3557
    thee; how much less
    H637
    this house
    H1004
    that I have builded?
    H1129
  28. 28. Yet have thou respect
    H6437
    unto the prayer
    H8605
    of thy servant,
    H5650
    and to his supplication,
    H8467
    O LORD
    H3068
    my God,
    H430
    to hearken
    H8085
    unto the cry
    H7440
    and to the prayer,
    H8605
    which thy servant
    H5650
    prayeth
    H6419
    before
    H6440
    thee to day:
    H3117
  29. 29. That thine eyes
    H5869
    may be open
    H6605
    toward this house
    H1004
    night
    H3915
    and day,
    H3117
    even toward the place
    H4725
    of which thou hast said,
    H559
    My name
    H8034
    shall be there: that thou mayest hearken
    H8085
    unto the prayer
    H8605
    which thy servant
    H5650
    shall make
    H6419
    toward this place.
    H4725
  30. 30. And hearken
    H8085
    thou to the supplication
    H8467
    of thy servant,
    H5650
    and of thy people
    H5971
    Israel,
    H3478
    when they shall pray
    H6419
    toward this place:
    H4725
    and hear
    H8085
    thou in heaven
    H8064
    thy dwelling
    H3427
    place:
    H4725
    and when thou hearest,
    H8085
    forgive.
    H5545
  31. 31. If any man
    H376
    trespass
    H2398
    against his neighbour,
    H7453
    and an oath
    H423
    be laid
    H5375
    upon him to cause him to swear,
    H422
    and the oath
    H423
    come
    H935
    before
    H6440
    thine altar
    H4196
    in this house:
    H1004
  32. 32. Then hear
    H8085
    thou in heaven,
    H8064
    and do,
    H6213
    and judge
    H8199
    thy servants,
    H5650
    condemning
    H7561
    the wicked,
    H7563
    to bring
    H5414
    his way
    H1870
    upon his head;
    H7218
    and justifying
    H6663
    the righteous,
    H6662
    to give
    H5414
    him according to his righteousness.
    H6666
  33. 33. When thy people
    H5971
    Israel
    H3478
    be smitten down
    H5062
    before
    H6440
    the enemy,
    H341
    because they have sinned
    H2398
    against thee, and shall turn again
    H7725
    to thee, and confess
    H3034
    thy name,
    H8034
    and pray,
    H6419
    and make supplication
    H2603
    unto thee in this house:
    H1004
  34. 34. Then hear
    H8085
    thou in heaven,
    H8064
    and forgive
    H5545
    the sin
    H2403
    of thy people
    H5971
    Israel,
    H3478
    and bring them again
    H7725
    unto the land
    H127
    which thou gavest
    H5414
    unto their fathers.
    H1
  35. 35. When heaven
    H8064
    is shut up,
    H6113
    and there is no rain,
    H4306
    because they have sinned
    H2398
    against thee; if they pray
    H6419
    toward this place,
    H4725
    and confess
    H3034
    thy name,
    H8034
    and turn
    H7725
    from their sin,
    H2403
    when thou afflictest
    H6031
    them:
  36. 36. Then hear
    H8085
    thou in heaven,
    H8064
    and forgive
    H5545
    the sin
    H2403
    of thy servants,
    H5650
    and of thy people
    H5971
    Israel,
    H3478
    that thou teach
    H3384
    them the good
    H2896
    way
    H1870
    wherein they should walk,
    H3212
    and give
    H5414
    rain
    H4306
    upon thy land,
    H776
    which thou hast given
    H5414
    to thy people
    H5971
    for an inheritance.
    H5159
  37. 37. If there be in the land
    H776
    famine,
    H7458
    if there be pestilence,
    H1698
    blasting,
    H7711
    mildew,
    H3420
    locust,
    H697
    or if there be caterpiller;
    H2625
    if their enemy
    H341
    besiege
    H6887
    them in the land
    H776
    of their cities;
    H8179
    whatsoever plague,
    H5061
    whatsoever sickness
    H4245
    there be;
  38. 38. What prayer
    H8605
    and supplication
    H8467
    soever be made by any man,
    H120
    or by all thy people
    H5971
    Israel,
    H3478
    which shall know
    H3045
    every man
    H376
    the plague
    H5061
    of his own heart,
    H3824
    and spread forth
    H6566
    his hands
    H3709
    toward this house:
    H1004
  39. 39. Then hear
    H8085
    thou in heaven
    H8064
    thy dwelling
    H3427
    place,
    H4349
    and forgive,
    H5545
    and do,
    H6213
    and give
    H5414
    to every man
    H376
    according to his ways,
    H1870
    whose heart
    H3824
    thou knowest;
    H3045
    (for thou, even thou only, knowest
    H3045
    the hearts
    H3824
    of all the children
    H1121
    of men;)
    H120
  40. 40. That they may fear
    H3372
    thee all the days
    H3117
    that they live
    H2416
    in
    H6440
    the land
    H127
    which thou gavest
    H5414
    unto our fathers.
    H1
  41. 41. Moreover concerning a stranger,
    H5237
    that is not of thy people
    H5971
    Israel,
    H3478
    but cometh out
    H935
    of a far
    H7350
    country
    H776
    for
    H4616
    thy name's
    H8034
    sake;
  42. 42. (For they shall hear
    H8085
    of thy great
    H1419
    name,
    H8034
    and of thy strong
    H2389
    hand,
    H3027
    and of thy stretched out
    H5186
    arm;)
    H2220
    when he shall come
    H935
    and pray
    H6419
    toward this house;
    H1004
  43. 43. Hear
    H8085
    thou in heaven
    H8064
    thy dwelling
    H3427
    place,
    H4349
    and do
    H6213
    according to all that the stranger
    H5237
    calleth
    H7121
    to thee for: that all people
    H5971
    of the earth
    H776
    may know
    H3045
    thy name,
    H8034
    to fear
    H3372
    thee, as do thy people
    H5971
    Israel;
    H3478
    and that they may know
    H3045
    that this house,
    H1004
    which I have builded,
    H1129
    is called
    H7121
    by thy name.
    H8034
  44. 44. If thy people
    H5971
    go out
    H3318
    to battle
    H4421
    against their enemy,
    H341
    whithersoever
    H1870
    thou shalt send
    H7971
    them, and shall pray
    H6419
    unto the LORD
    H3068
    toward
    H1870
    the city
    H5892
    which thou hast chosen,
    H977
    and toward the house
    H1004
    that I have built
    H1129
    for thy name:
    H8034
  45. 45. Then hear
    H8085
    thou in heaven
    H8064
    their prayer
    H8605
    and their supplication,
    H8467
    and maintain
    H6213
    their cause.
    H4941
  46. 46. If they sin
    H2398
    against thee, (for there is no man
    H120
    that sinneth
    H2398
    not,) and thou be angry
    H599
    with them, and deliver
    H5414
    them to the enemy,
    H341
    so that they carry them away
    H7617
    captives
    H7617
    unto
    H6440
    the land
    H776
    of the enemy,
    H341
    far
    H7350
    or near;
    H7138
  47. 47. Yet if they shall bethink
    H7725
    themselves in the land
    H776
    whither they were carried captives,
    H7617
    and repent,
    H7725
    H3820
    and make supplication
    H2603
    unto thee in the land
    H776
    of them that carried them captives,
    H7617
    saying,
    H559
    We have sinned,
    H2398
    and have done perversely,
    H5753
    we have committed wickedness;
    H7561
  48. 48. And so return
    H7725
    unto thee with all their heart,
    H3824
    and with all their soul,
    H5315
    in the land
    H776
    of their enemies,
    H341
    which led them away captive,
    H7617
    and pray
    H6419
    unto thee toward
    H1870
    their land,
    H776
    which thou gavest
    H5414
    unto their fathers,
    H1
    the city
    H5892
    which thou hast chosen,
    H977
    and the house
    H1004
    which I have built
    H1129
    for thy name:
    H8034
  49. 49. Then hear
    H8085
    thou their prayer
    H8605
    and their supplication
    H8467
    in heaven
    H8064
    thy dwelling
    H3427
    place,
    H4349
    and maintain
    H6213
    their cause,
    H4941
  50. 50. And forgive
    H5545
    thy people
    H5971
    that have sinned
    H2398
    against thee, and all their transgressions
    H6588
    wherein they have transgressed
    H6586
    against thee, and give
    H5414
    them compassion
    H7356
    before
    H6440
    them who carried them captive,
    H7617
    that they may have compassion
    H7355
    on them:
  51. 51. For they be thy people,
    H5971
    and thine inheritance,
    H5159
    which thou broughtest forth
    H3318
    out of Egypt,
    H4714
    from the midst
    H8432
    of the furnace
    H3564
    of iron:
    H1270
  52. 52. That thine eyes
    H5869
    may be open
    H6605
    unto the supplication
    H8467
    of thy servant,
    H5650
    and unto the supplication
    H8467
    of thy people
    H5971
    Israel,
    H3478
    to hearken
    H8085
    unto them in all that they call
    H7121
    for unto thee.
  53. 53. For thou didst separate
    H914
    them from among all the people
    H5971
    of the earth,
    H776
    to be thine inheritance,
    H5159
    as thou spakest
    H1696
    by the hand
    H3027
    of Moses
    H4872
    thy servant,
    H5650
    when thou broughtest
    H3318
    our fathers
    H1
    out of Egypt,
    H4714
    O Lord
    H136
    GOD.
    H3069
  54. 54. And it was so, that when Solomon
    H8010
    had made an end
    H3615
    of praying
    H6419
    all this prayer
    H8605
    and supplication
    H8467
    unto the LORD,
    H3068
    he arose
    H6965
    from before
    H6440
    the altar
    H4196
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    from kneeling
    H3766
    on his knees
    H1290
    with his hands
    H3709
    spread up
    H6566
    to heaven.
    H8064
  55. 55. And he stood,
    H5975
    and blessed
    H1288
    all the congregation
    H6951
    of Israel
    H3478
    with a loud
    H1419
    voice,
    H6963
    saying,
    H559
  56. 56. Blessed
    H1288
    be the LORD,
    H3068
    that hath given
    H5414
    rest
    H4496
    unto his people
    H5971
    Israel,
    H3478
    according to all that he promised:
    H1696
    there hath not failed
    H5307
    one
    H259
    word
    H1697
    of all his good
    H2896
    promise,
    H1697
    which he promised
    H1696
    by the hand
    H3027
    of Moses
    H4872
    his servant.
    H5650
  57. 57. The LORD
    H3068
    our God
    H430
    be with us, as he was with our fathers:
    H1
    let him not leave
    H5800
    us, nor forsake
    H5203
    us:
  58. 58. That he may incline
    H5186
    our hearts
    H3824
    unto him, to walk
    H3212
    in all his ways,
    H1870
    and to keep
    H8104
    his commandments,
    H4687
    and his statutes,
    H2706
    and his judgments,
    H4941
    which he commanded
    H6680
    our fathers.
    H1
  59. 59. And let these my words,
    H1697
    wherewith I have made supplication
    H2603
    before
    H6440
    the LORD,
    H3068
    be nigh
    H7138
    unto the LORD
    H3068
    our God
    H430
    day
    H3119
    and night,
    H3915
    that he maintain
    H6213
    the cause
    H4941
    of his servant,
    H5650
    and the cause
    H4941
    of his people
    H5971
    Israel
    H3478
    at all times,
    H3117
    H3117
    as the matter
    H1697
    shall require:
  60. 60. That all the people
    H5971
    of the earth
    H776
    may know
    H3045
    that the LORD
    H3068
    is God,
    H430
    and that there is none else.
  61. 61. Let your heart
    H3824
    therefore be perfect
    H8003
    with the LORD
    H3068
    our God,
    H430
    to walk
    H3212
    in his statutes,
    H2706
    and to keep
    H8104
    his commandments,
    H4687
    as at this day.
    H3117
  62. 62. And the king,
    H4428
    and all Israel
    H3478
    with him, offered
    H2076
    sacrifice
    H2077
    before
    H6440
    the LORD.
    H3068
  63. 63. And Solomon
    H8010
    offered
    H2076
    a sacrifice
    H2077
    of peace offerings,
    H8002
    which he offered
    H2076
    unto the LORD,
    H3068
    two
    H8147
    and twenty
    H6242
    thousand
    H505
    oxen,
    H1241
    and an hundred
    H3967
    and twenty
    H6242
    thousand
    H505
    sheep.
    H6629
    So the king
    H4428
    and all the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    dedicated
    H2596
    the house
    H1004
    of the LORD.
    H3068
  64. 64. The same day
    H3117
    did the king
    H4428
    hallow
    H6942
    the middle
    H8432
    of the court
    H2691
    that was before
    H6440
    the house
    H1004
    of the LORD:
    H3068
    for there he offered
    H6213
    burnt offerings,
    H5930
    and meat offerings,
    H4503
    and the fat
    H2459
    of the peace offerings:
    H8002
    because the brasen
    H5178
    altar
    H4196
    that was before
    H6440
    the LORD
    H3068
    was too little
    H6996
    to receive
    H3557
    the burnt offerings,
    H5930
    and meat offerings,
    H4503
    and the fat
    H2459
    of the peace offerings.
    H8002
  65. 65. And at that time
    H6256
    Solomon
    H8010
    held
    H6213
    a feast,
    H2282
    and all Israel
    H3478
    with him, a great
    H1419
    congregation,
    H6951
    from the entering
    H935
    in of Hamath
    H2574
    unto the river
    H5158
    of Egypt,
    H4714
    before
    H6440
    the LORD
    H3068
    our God,
    H430
    seven
    H7651
    days
    H3117
    and seven
    H7651
    days,
    H3117
    even fourteen
    H6240
    H702
    days.
    H3117
  66. 66. On the eighth
    H8066
    day
    H3117
    he sent
    H7971
    the people
    H5971
    away:
    H7971
    and they blessed
    H1288
    the king,
    H4428
    and went
    H3212
    unto their tents
    H168
    joyful
    H8056
    and glad
    H2896
    of heart
    H3820
    for all the goodness
    H2896
    that the LORD
    H3068
    had done
    H6213
    for David
    H1732
    his servant,
    H5650
    and for Israel
    H3478
    his people.
