tribes, the chief of the fathers of the children of Israel, unto Jerusalem, to bring up the ark of the covenant of the LoRd out jo. city of David, which is Zion. 3 Wherefore all the men of Israel assembled themselves unto the king in the feast which was in the seventh month. 4 And all the elders of Israel came; and the Levites took up the ark. 5 And they brought up the ark, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and all the holy vessels that were in the tabernacle, these did the priests and the Levites bring up. 6. Also king Solomon, and all the congregation of Israel that were assembled unto him before the ark, sacrificed sheep and oxen, which could not be told nor numbered for multitude. 7 And the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the Lord unto his place, to the oracle of the house, into the most holy place, even under the wings of the cherubims: 8 For the cherubims spread forth their wings over the place of the ark, and the cherubims covered the ark, and the staves thereof above. 9 And they drew out the staves of the ork, that the ends of the staves were seen from the ark before the oracle; but the were not seen without. And there it is unto this day. 10 These was nothing in the ark save the two tables which Moses put therein at Horeb, when the Lord made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they came out of Egypt. 11 || And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place: (for all the priests that were present were sanctified, and did not then wait by course: 12. Also the Levites which were the singers, all of them of Asaph, of Heman, of Jeduthun, with their sons and their brethren ; being arrayed in white linen, having cymbals and psalteries and harps, stood at the east end of the altar, and with them a hundred and twentypriests sounding with trumpets :) 13. It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lorn; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpetsand cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the Lord, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the Load; 14.

CHAP. VI. HEN said Solomon, The Lond hath said that he would dwell in the thick darkness. 2. But I have built a house of habitation for thee, and a place for thy dwelling for ever. 3 And the king turned his face, and blessed the whole congregation of Israel: and all the congregation of Israel stood. 4 And he said, Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, who hath with his hands fulfilled that which he spake with his mouth to my father David, saying, 5 Since the day àti brought forth my people out of the land of Egypt I chose no city among all the tribes of Israel to build a house in, that my name might be there; neither chose I any man to be a ruler over my people Israel: 6 But I have chosen Jerusalem, that my name might be there; and have chosen David to be over my people Israel. 7 Now it was in the heart of David my father to build a house for the name of the Lord God of Israel; 8 But the Lord said to David my father,Forasmuch as it was in thine heart to build a house for my name, thou didst well in that it was in thine heart: 9 Notwithstanding thou shalt not build the house ; but thy son which shall come forth out of thy loins, he shall build the. house for my name. 10 The Lond therefore hath performed his word that he hath spoken : for I am risen up in the room of David my father, and am set on the throne of Israel, as the LoRD promised, and have built the house for the name of the Lord God of Israel. 11 And in it have I put the ark, wherein is the covenant of the Lord, that he made with the children of Israel. 12 || And he stood before the altar of the LoRD in the presence of all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands: 13 (For Solomon had made a brazen scaffold, of five cubits long, and five cur bits broad, and three cubits high, and had set it in the midst of the court; and upon it he stood, and kneeled down upon his knees before all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven,) 14 And said, O Lord God of Israel, there is no God like thee in the heaven, nor in the earth; which keepest covenant, and shewest mercy unto thy servants, that walk before thee with all their hearts: 15 Thou which hast kept with thy servant David my father that which thou host promised him; and spakest with, thy mouth, and hast fulfilled it with thine hand, as it is this day. 16 Now thereo,9 LoRD God of Isr

rael, keep with thy servant David my father that which thou hast promised him, saying, There shall not fail thee a man in my sight to sit upon the throne of Israel; yet so that thy children take heed to their !. to walk in my law, as thou hast walked before me. 17 Now then, O Lord God of Israel, let thy word be verified, which thou hast spoken unto thy servant David. 18 But will God in very deed dwell with men on the earth? Behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house which I have built 1 19 Have respect therefore to the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O Lord my God, to hearken unto the c and the prayer which thy servant prayet before thee: 20 That thine eyes may be open upon this house day an o upon the place whereof thou #. said, that thou wouldest put thy name there; to hearken unto the prayer which thy servant prayeth toWa §. *::: 21 Hearken therefore unto the supplications of thy servant, and of thy people Israel, which they shall make toward, this place: hear thou from thy dwelling-place, even from heaven; and when thou hearest, forgive. 2 T If a mansin against his neighbour, and an oath be laid upon him to make him swear, and the oath come before thine allar in this house; 23 Then hear thou from heaven, and do, and judge thy servants, by requiting the wicked, by recompensing his way upon his own head; and by justifying the righteous, by giving him according to his righteous

Then hear thou from the heavens, even from thy dwelling-place, their prayer and their supplications, and maintain their cause, and forgive thy people which have sinned against thee. . . 40.

VII. OW when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt-offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the LoRD filled the house. 2 And the priests could not enter into the house of the Lord, because the glory of the Lond had filled the Lord's house; 3. And when all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the Lond upon the house, they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshipped, and raised the Lord, saying, For he is good; or his mercy endureth for ever. 4 I. Then the king and all the people offered sacrifices before the Lord. 5 And king Solomon offered a sacrifice of twenty and two thousand oxen, and a hundred and twenty thousand sheep. So the king and all the people dedicated the bouse of God. 6 And the priests waited on their offices: the Levites also with instruments of music of the Lord, which David the king had made to praise the LoRD,becausehis mercy endureth for ever, when David praised by their ministry; and the priests sounded trumpets before them, and all Israel stood. 7 Moreover Solomon hallowed the middle of the court that was before the house of the Lord ; for there he offered burnt9fferings, and the fat of the peace-offerings, because the brazen altar which Solomon had made was not able to receive the burnt-offerings, and the meat-offerings, and the fat. 8. Also at the same time Solomon kept the feast seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great congregation, from the entering in of Hamath unto the river of
9 And in the eighth day they made a solemn assembly: for they kept the dedication of the altar seven days, and the feast seven days.
10 And on the three and twentieth day of the seventh month he sent the people away into their tents, glad and merry in heart for the o: that the lo shewed unto David, and to Solomon, and to Israel his people.
1. Thus Solomon finished the house of
the Lord, and the king's house; and aii
the house of the Lord, and in his own house, he prosperously effected. 12 T And the Lond appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard thy o; and have chosen this place to myself for an house of sacrifice. 13 If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; 14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 15 Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place. 16 For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually. 17And as for thee, if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, and do according to all that I have commanded thee, and shalt observe my statutes and my judgments: 18 Then will I establish the throne of thy kingdom according as I have covenanted with David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man to be ruler in Israel. 19 But if ye turn away, and forsake m statutes and my commandments, which have set before you, and shall go and serve other #. and worship them; 20 Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for my name, will I cast out of ny sight, and will make it to be a proverb and ..., among all nations. . . 31 And this house, which is high, shall be an astonishment to every one that passeth by it; so that he shall say, Why, hath the Lord done thus unto this land, and unto this house 7 22 And it shall be answered, Because they forsook the Lord God of their fathers, which brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, and laid hold on other gods, and worshipped them, and served them: therefore hatshebrought all thisevil upon them §§ VIII, ND it came topass at the end of twent years, wherein Solomon had built the house of the Lond, and his own house, 2 That the cities which Huram had restored to Solomon, Solomon built "...i and caused the children of Israel to dwe there. 3 And Solomon went to Hamath-zobab, and prevailed against it.

ness, and all the store-cities, which he built in Hamath. 5 Also he built Beth-horon the upper, and Beth-horon the nether, fenced-cities, with walls, gates, and bars; 6 And Baalath, and all the store-cities that Solomon had, and all the chariotcities, and the cities of the horsemen, and all that Solomon desired to build in Jerusalem, and in Lebanon, and throughout all the land of his dominion. 7 s.1s for all the people that were left of the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, which were not of Israel, 8 But of their children, who were left after them in the land, whom the children of Israel consumed not, them did Solomon make to pay tribute until this day. 9 But of the children of Israel did Solomon make no servants for his work; but they were men of war, and chief of his captains, and captains of his chariots and rsemen. 10 And these were the chief of king So
, lomon’s officers, even two hundred and
fifty, that bare rule over the people. i i And Solomon brought up the daughter of Pharaoh out of the city of David unto the house that he had built for her: for he said, My wife shall not dwell in the house of David king of Israel, because the §: are holy, whereunto the ark of the RD hath come. . 12 T Then Solomon offered burnt-offerings unto the Loop on the altar of the LoRD, which he had built before the porch, 13. Even after a certain rate every day, offering according to the commandment of Moses, on the sabbaths, and on the new moons, and on the solemn feasts, three times in the year, even in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles. 14 || And he o'. according to the order of David'his father, the courses of the priests to their service, and the LeVites to their charges, to praise and minister before the priests, as the duty of eve day required: the porters also by their Sourses at every gate: for so ...?David the man of God commanded. 15 And they departed not from the cominandment of the king unto the priests and vites concerning any matter, or concerning the treasures. 16 Now all the work of Solomon was Prepared unto the day of the foundation of the house of the Lord, and until it was finished. So the house of the iono was perfected. 17 " Then went Solomon to Ezion-geber, and to Eloth, at the sea-side in É. of Edom. 18 And Huram sent him by the hands
of his servants, ships, and servants that had knowledge of the sea ; and they went with the servants of Solomon to Ophir, and took thence four hundred and fifty talents of gold, and brought them to king Solomon. CHAP. IX.” . A” when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame ..] Solomon, she came to prove Solomon with hard questions at Jerusalem, with a very great company, and camels that bare spices, and gold in abundance, and precious stones: and when she was come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart. 2 And Solomon told her all her questions: and there was nothing hid from Solomon which he told her not. 3 And when the queen of Sheba had seen the wisdom of Solomon, and the house that he had built, 4 And the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel; his cupbearers also, and their apparel; and his ascent by which he went up into the house : the Lord ; there was no more spirit in er. 5 And she said to the king, It was a true report which I heard in mine own land of thine acts, and of thy wisdom: 6 Howbeit, I believed not their words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it: and behold, the one half of the greatness of thy wisdom was not told me: for thou exceedest the fame that I heard. 7 Happy are thy men, and happy are these thy servants, which stand continually before thee, and hearthy wisdom. 8. Blessed be the Lorp thy God, which delighted in thee to set thee on his throne, to be king for the Lord thy God; because thy Godloved Israel, to establish them for ever, therefore made he, thee king over them, to do judgment and justice. 9 And she gave the king a hundred and twenty talents of gold, and of spices great abundance, and precious stones: neither was there any such spice as the queen of Sheba gave king Solomon. 10 Ånd the servants also of Huram, and the servants of Solomon, which brought gold from Ophir, brought algum-trees and precious stones. 11 And the king made of the algum-trees terraces to the house of the Lord, and to the king's palace, and harps and psalteries for singers: and there were none such seen before in the land of Judah. 12 And king Solomon gave to the queen of Sheba all her desire, whatsoever she asked, besides that which she had brought untotheking. Sosheturned, and went away to her own i. she and her servants. 13 T Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one or was six hundred 36:
The riches of Solomon,
and threescore and six talents of gold; 14 Besides that which chapmen and merchants brought. And all the kings of Arabia and governors of the country brought gold and silver to Solomon. 15 TT And king Solomon made two hundred targets of beaten gold: six hundred shekels of beaten gold went to one target. 16 And three hundred shields made he of beaten gold: three hundred shekels of gold went to one shield. And the king É. them in the house of the forest of Lebanon. 17 T Moreover, the king made a great throne of ivory, and overlaid it with pure OICl. 18 And there were six steps to the throne, with a footstool of gold, which were fastened to the throne, and stays on each side of the sittingsplace, and two lions standing by the is: 19 And twelve lions stood there on the one side and on the other upon the six steps. There was not the like made in any kingdom. of Andall the o vessels of king Solomon were of gold, and all the vessels of the house of the forest of Lebanon were of pure gold: none ...s. silver; it was not anything accounted of in the days of Solomon. 21 For the king's ships went to Tarshish with the servants of Huram: every three years once came the ships of Tarshish bringing gold, and silver, ivory, and * apes, and peacocks. 22 And king Solomon passed all the kings of the earth in riches and wisdom. 23 T And all the kings of the earth sought the presence of Solomon, to hear his wisdom, that God had put in his heart. 24 And o brought every man his present, vessels of silver, j','o', of old, and raiment, harness, and spices, orses, and mules, a rate year by year. 25 || And Solomon had four thousand stalls for horses and chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen; whom he bestowed in the chariot-cities, and with the king at Jerusalem. 26 And he reigned over all the kings from the river even unto the land of the Philistines, and to the border of Egypt. 27 And the king made silver in #. lem as stones, and cedar-trees made he as the sycamore-trees that are in the low plains in abundance. 28 And they brought unto Solomon horses out of Egypt, and out of all lands. 29 || Now the rest of the acts of Solomon, first and last, are they not written in the book of Nathan the prophet, and in the prophecy of Ahijab to: ji. and in the visions of Iddo the seer against Je

31 And Solomon slept with his fathers, and he was buried in the city of David his father: and Rehoboam his son reigned in his stead.
CHAP. X. ND Rehoboam went to Shechem: for to Shechem were all Israel come to make him king. 2 And it came to pass, when Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who was in Egypt, whither he had fled from the presence of Solomon the .# heard it, that Jeroboam returned out of Egypt. 3 And they sent and called him. So Jeroboam and all Israel came and spake to Rehoboam, saying, 4 Thy father made our yoke grievous: now therefore ease thou somewhat the o servitude of thy father, and his heavy yoke that he put upon us, and we will serve thee. - 5 And he said unto them, Come again unto me after three days. And the people departed. 6. T. And king Rehoboam took counsel with the old men that had stood before Solomon his father while he yet lived, saying, What counsel give ye me to return answer to this people? 7 And they spake unto him, saying, If thou be kind to this people, and please them, and speak good words to them, they will be thy servants for ever, 8 But he forsook the counsel which the old men gave him, and took counsel with the young men that were brought up with him, that stood before him. 9 And he said unto them, What advice give ye, that we may return answer to this people, which have spoken to me, saying, ase somewhat the yoke that thy father did put upon us? 10, And the young men that were brought up with him, spake unto him, saying, Thus shalt thou answer the Pool. that spake unto thee, saying, Thy father made our yoke heavy, but make thou it somewhat lighter for us; thus shalt thou say unto them, My littlé finger shall bes thicker than my father's loins. 11 For whereas my father put a heavy yoke upon you, I will put more to your oke: my father chastised you with whips, ut I will chastise you with scorpions. 12 So Jeroboam and all the people came to Rehoboam on the third day, as the king bade, saying, Come again to me on the ă. o; 13 And the king answered them roughby; and king Rehoboam forsook the counsel of the old men, 14 And answered them after the advice
