2 Chronicles 2


1  And Solomon8010 determined559 to build1129 a house1004 for the name8034 of the LORD,3068 and a house1004 for his kingdom.4438

2  And Solomon8010 told out5608 threescore and ten7657 thousand505 men376 to bear burdens,5449 and fourscore8084 thousand505 376 to hew2672 in the mountain,2022 and three7969 thousand505 and six8337 hundred3967 to oversee5329 5921 them.

3  And Solomon8010 sent7971 to413 Huram2361 the king4428 of Tyre,6865 saying,559 As834 thou didst deal6213 with5973 David1732 my father,1 and didst send7971 him cedars730 to build1129 him a house1004 to dwell3427 therein, even so deal with me.

4  Behold,2009 I589 build1129 a house1004 to the name8034 of the LORD3068 my God,430 to dedicate6942 it to him, and to burn6999 before6440 him sweet5561 incense,7004 and for the continual8548 shewbread,4635 and for the burnt offerings5930 morning1242 and evening,6153 on the sabbaths,7676 and on the new moons,2320 and on the solemn feasts4150 of the LORD3068 our God.430 This2063 is an ordinance forever5769 to5921 Israel.3478

5  And the house1004 which834 I589 build1129 is great:1419 for3588 great1419 is our God430 above all4480 3605 gods.430

6  But who4310 is able6113 3581 to build1129 him a house,1004 seeing3588 the heaven8064 and heaven8064 of heavens8064 cannot3808 contain3557 him? who4310 am I589 then, that834 I should build1129 him a house,1004 save only3588 518 to burn sacrifice6999 before6440 him?

7  Send7971 me now6258 therefore a man376 cunning2450 to work6213 in gold,2091 and in silver,3701 and in brass,5178 and in iron,1270 and in purple,710 and crimson,3758 and blue,8504 and that can skill3045 to grave6605 6603 with5973 the cunning men2450 that834 are with5973 me in Judah3063 and in Jerusalem,3389 whom834 David1732 my father1 did provide.3559

8  Send7971 me also cedar730 trees,6086 fir trees,1265 and algum trees,418 out of Lebanon:4480 3844 for3588 I589 know3045 that834 thy servants5650 can skill3045 to cut3772 timber6086 in Lebanon;3844 and, behold,2009 my servants5650 shall be with5973 thy servants,5650

9  Even to prepare3559 me timber6086 in abundance:7230 for3588 the house1004 which834 I589 am about to build1129 shall be wonderful6381 great.1419

10  And, behold,2009 I will give5414 to thy servants,5650 the hewers2404 that cut3772 timber,6086 twenty6242 thousand505 measures3734 of beaten4347 wheat,2406 and twenty6242 thousand505 measures3734 of barley,8184 and twenty6242 thousand505 baths1324 of wine,3196 and twenty6242 thousand505 baths1324 of oil.8081

11  Then Huram2361 the king4428 of Tyre6865 answered559 in writing,3791 which he sent7971 to413 Solomon,8010 Because the LORD3068 hath loved160 853 his people,5971 he hath made5414 thee king4428 over5921 them.

12  Huram2361 said559 moreover, Blessed1288 be the LORD3068 God430 of Israel,3478 that834 made6213 853 heaven8064 and earth,776 who834 hath given5414 to David1732 the king4428 a wise2450 son,1121 endued3045 with prudence7922 and understanding,998 that834 might build1129 a house1004 for the LORD,3068 and a house1004 for his kingdom.4438

13  And now6258 I have sent7971 a cunning2450 man,376 endued3045 with understanding,998 of Huram2361 my father's,1

14  The son1121 of a woman802 of4480 the daughters1323 of Dan,1835 and his father1 was a man376 of Tyre,6876 skillful3045 to work6213 in gold,2091 and in silver,3701 in brass,5178 in iron,1270 in stone,68 and in timber,6086 in purple,713 in blue,8504 and in fine linen,948 and in crimson;3758 also to grave6605 any manner3605 of graving,6603 and to find out2803 every3605 device4284 which834 shall be put5414 to him, with5973 thy cunning men,2450 and with the cunning men2450 of my lord113 David1732 thy father.1

15  Now6258 therefore the wheat,2406 and the barley,8184 the oil,8081 and the wine,3196 which834 my lord113 hath spoken559 of, let him send7971 unto his servants:5650

16  And we587 will cut3772 wood6086 out of4480 Lebanon,3844 as much as thou3605 shalt need:6878 and we will bring935 it to thee in floats7513 by5921 sea3220 to Joppa;3305 and thou859 shalt carry it up5927 853 to Jerusalem.3389

17  And Solomon8010 numbered5608 all3605 the strangers376 1616 that834 were in the land776 of Israel,3478 after310 the numbering5610 wherewith834 David1732 his father1 had numbered5608 them; and they were found4672 a hundred3967 and fifty2572 thousand505 and three7969 thousand505 and six8337 hundred.3967

18  And he set6213 threescore and ten7657 thousand505 of4480 them to be bearers of burdens,5449 and fourscore8084 thousand505 to be hewers2672 in the mountain,2022 and three7969 thousand505 and six8337 hundred3967 overseers5329 to set5647 853 the people5971 a work.


1 καὶ συνήγαγεν Σαλωμων ἑβδομήκοντα χιλιάδας ἀνδρῶν καὶ ὀγδοήκοντα χιλιάδας λατόμων ἐν τῷ ὄρει καὶ οἱ ἐπιστάται ἐπ᾽ αὐτῶν τρισχίλιοι ἑξακόσιοι

2 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Σαλωμων πρὸς Χιραμ βασιλέα Τύρου λέγων ὡς ἐποίησας μετὰ τοῦ πατρός μου Δαυιδ καὶ ἀπέστειλας αὐτῷ κέδρους τοῦ οἰκοδομῆσαι ἑαυτῷ οἶκον κατοικῆσαι ἐν αὐτῷ

3 καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ὁ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ οἰκοδομῶ οἶκον τῷ ὀνόματι κυρίου θεοῦ μου ἁγιάσαι αὐτὸν αὐτῷ τοῦ θυμιᾶν ἀπέναντι αὐτοῦ θυμίαμα καὶ πρόθεσιν διὰ παντὸς καὶ τοῦ ἀναφέρειν ὁλοκαυτώματα διὰ παντὸς τὸ πρωὶ καὶ τὸ δείλης καὶ ἐν τοῖς σαββάτοις καὶ ἐν ταῖς νουμηνίαις καὶ ἐν ταῖς ἑορταῖς τοῦ κυρίου θεοῦ ἡμῶν εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τοῦτο ἐπὶ τὸν Ισραηλ

4 καὶ ὁ οἶκος ὃν ἐγὼ οἰκοδομῶ μέγας ὅτι μέγας ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν παρὰ πάντας τοὺς θεούς

5 καὶ τίς ἰσχύσει οἰκοδομῆσαι αὐτῷ οἶκον ὅτι ὁ οὐρανὸς καὶ ὁ οὐρανὸς τοῦ οὐρανοῦ οὐ φέρουσιν αὐτοῦ τὴν δόξαν καὶ τίς ἐγὼ οἰκοδομῶν αὐτῷ οἶκον ὅτι ἀλλ᾽ ἢ τοῦ θυμιᾶν κατέναντι αὐτοῦ

6 καὶ νῦν ἀπόστειλόν μοι ἄνδρα σοφὸν καὶ εἰδότα τοῦ ποιῆσαι ἐν τῷ χρυσίῳ καὶ ἐν τῷ ἀργυρίῳ καὶ ἐν τῷ χαλκῷ καὶ ἐν τῷ σιδήρῳ καὶ ἐν τῇ πορφύρᾳ καὶ ἐν τῷ κοκκίνῳ καὶ ἐν τῇ ὑακίνθῳ καὶ ἐπιστάμενον γλύψαι γλυφὴν μετὰ τῶν σοφῶν τῶν μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ ἐν Ιουδα καὶ ἐν Ιερουσαλημ ὧν ἡτοίμασεν Δαυιδ ὁ πατήρ μου

7 καὶ ἀπόστειλόν μοι ξύλα κέδρινα καὶ ἀρκεύθινα καὶ πεύκινα ἐκ τοῦ Λιβάνου ὅτι ἐγὼ οἶδα ὡς οἱ δοῦλοί σου οἴδασιν κόπτειν ξύλα ἐκ τοῦ Λιβάνου καὶ ἰδοὺ οἱ παῖδές σου μετὰ τῶν παίδων μου

8 πορεύσονται ἑτοιμάσαι μοι ξύλα εἰς πλῆθος ὅτι ὁ οἶκος ὃν ἐγὼ οἰκοδομῶ μέγας καὶ ἔνδοξος

9 καὶ ἰδοὺ τοῖς ἐργαζομένοις τοῖς κόπτουσιν ξύλα εἰς βρώματα δέδωκα σῖτον εἰς δόματα τοῖς παισίν σου κόρων εἴκοσι χιλιάδας καὶ κριθῶν κόρων εἴκοσι χιλιάδας καὶ οἴνου μέτρων εἴκοσι χιλιάδας καὶ ἐλαίου μέτρων εἴκοσι χιλιάδας

10 καὶ εἶπεν Χιραμ βασιλεὺς Τύρου ἐν γραφῇ καὶ ἀπέστειλεν πρὸς Σαλωμων ἐν τῷ ἀγαπῆσαι κύριον τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ ἔδωκέν σε ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς εἰς βασιλέα

11 καὶ εἶπεν Χιραμ εὐλογητὸς κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ ὃς ἐποίησεν τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν ὃς ἔδωκεν τῷ Δαυιδ τῷ βασιλεῖ υἱὸν σοφὸν καὶ ἐπιστάμενον σύνεσιν καὶ ἐπιστήμην ὃς οἰκοδομήσει οἶκον τῷ κυρίῳ καὶ οἶκον τῇ βασιλείᾳ αὐτοῦ

12 καὶ νῦν ἀπέσταλκά σοι ἄνδρα σοφὸν καὶ εἰδότα σύνεσιν τὸν Χιραμ τὸν πατέρα μου

13 ἡ μήτηρ αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ θυγατέρων Δαν καὶ ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ ἀνὴρ Τύριος εἰδότα ποιῆσαι ἐν χρυσίῳ καὶ ἐν ἀργυρίῳ καὶ ἐν χαλκῷ καὶ ἐν σιδήρῳ ἐν λίθοις καὶ ξύλοις καὶ ὑφαίνειν ἐν τῇ πορφύρᾳ καὶ ἐν τῇ ὑακίνθῳ καὶ ἐν τῇ βύσσῳ καὶ ἐν τῷ κοκκίνῳ καὶ γλύψαι γλυφὰς καὶ διανοεῖσθαι πᾶσαν διανόησιν ὅσα ἂν δῷς αὐτῷ μετὰ τῶν σοφῶν σου καὶ σοφῶν Δαυιδ κυρίου μου πατρός σου

14 καὶ νῦν τὸν σῖτον καὶ τὴν κριθὴν καὶ τὸ ἔλαιον καὶ τὸν οἶνον ἃ εἶπεν ὁ κύριός μου ἀποστειλάτω τοῖς παισὶν αὐτοῦ

15 καὶ ἡμεῖς κόψομεν ξύλα ἐκ τοῦ Λιβάνου κατὰ πᾶσαν τὴν χρείαν σου καὶ ἄξομεν αὐτὰ σχεδίαις ἐπὶ θάλασσαν Ιόππης καὶ σὺ ἄξεις αὐτὰ εἰς Ιερουσαλημ

16 καὶ συνήγαγεν Σαλωμων πάντας τοὺς ἄνδρας τοὺς προσηλύτους ἐν γῇ Ισραηλ μετὰ τὸν ἀριθμόν ὃν ἠρίθμησεν αὐτοὺς Δαυιδ ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ καὶ εὑρέθησαν ἑκατὸν πεντήκοντα χιλιάδες καὶ τρισχίλιοι ἑξακόσιοι

17 καὶ ἐποίησεν ἐξ αὐτῶν ἑβδομήκοντα χιλιάδας νωτοφόρων καὶ ὀγδοήκοντα χιλιάδας λατόμων καὶ τρισχιλίους ἑξακοσίους ἐργοδιώκτας ἐπὶ τὸν λαόν

1 Decrevit autem Salomon ædificare domum nomini Domini, et palatium sibi.

2 Et numeravit septuaginta millia virorum portantium humeris, et octoginta millia qui cæderent lapides in montibus, præpositosque eorum tria millia sexcentos.

3 Misit quoque ad Hiram regem Tyri, dicens: Sicut egisti cum David patre meo, et misisti ei ligna cedrina ut ædificaret sibi domum, in qua et habitavit:

4 sic fac mecum ut ædificem domum nomini Domini Dei mei, ut consecrem eam ad adolendum incensum coram illo, et fumiganda aromata, et ad propositionem panum sempiternam, et ad holocautomata mane, et vespere, sabbatis quoque, et neomeniis, et solemnitatibus Domini Dei nostri in sempiternum, quæ mandata sunt Israëli.

5 Domus enim quam ædificare cupio, magna est: magnus est enim Deus noster super omnes deos.

6 Quis ergo poterit prævalere, ut ædificet ei dignam domum? si cælum, et cæli cælorum, capere eum nequeunt, quantus ego sum, ut possim ædificare ei domum? sed ad hoc tantum, ut adoleatur incensum coram illo.

7 Mitte ergo mihi virum eruditum, qui noverit operari in auro, et argento, ære, et ferro, purpura, coccino, et hyacintho: et qui sciat sculpere cælaturas cum his artificibus quos mecum habeo in Judæa, et Jerusalem, quos præparavit David pater meus.

8 Sed et ligna cedrina mitte mihi, et arceuthina, et pinea de Libano: scio enim quod servi tui noverint cædere ligna de Libano: et erunt servi mei cum servis tuis,

9 ut parentur mihi ligna plurima. Domus enim quam cupio ædificare, magna est nimis, et inclyta.

10 Præterea operariis qui cæsuri sunt ligna, servis tuis, dabo in cibaria tritici coros viginti millia, et hordei coros totidem, et vini viginti millia metretas, olei quoque sata viginti millia.

11 Dixit autem Hiram rex Tyri per litteras quas miserat Salomoni: Quia dilexit Dominus populum suum, idcirco te regnare fecit super eum.

12 Et addidit, dicens: Benedictus Dominus Deus Israël, qui fecit cælum et terram: qui dedit David regi filium sapientem et eruditum et sensatum atque prudentem, ut ædificaret domum Domino, et palatium sibi.

13 Misi ergo tibi virum prudentem et scientissimum Hiram patrem meum,

14 filium mulieris de filiabus Dan, cujus pater fuit Tyrius, qui novit operari in auro, et argento, ære, et ferro, et marmore, et lignis, in purpura quoque, et hyacintho, et bysso, et coccino: et qui scit cælare omnem sculpturam, et adinvenire prudenter quodcumque in opere necessarium est cum artificibus tuis, et cum artificibus domini mei David patris tui.

15 Triticum ergo, et hordeum, et oleum, et vinum, quæ pollicitus es, domine mi, mitte servis tuis.

16 Nos autem cædemus ligna de Libano, quot necessaria habueris, et applicabimus ea ratibus per mare in Joppe: tuum autem erit transferre ea in Jerusalem.

17 Numeravit igitur Salomon omnes viros proselytos qui erant in terra Israël, post dinumerationem quam dinumeravit David pater ejus, et inventi sunt centum quinquaginta millia, et tria millia sexcenti.

18 Fecitque ex eis septuaginta millia qui humeris onera portarent, et octoginta millia qui lapides in montibus cæderent: tria autem millia et sexcentos præpositos operum populi.
