1 Kings 8


1  Then227 Solomon8010 assembled6950 853 the elders2205 of Israel,3478 and 853 all3605 the heads7218 of the tribes,4294 the chief5387 of the fathers1 of the children1121 of Israel,3478 unto413 king4428 Solomon8010 in Jerusalem,3389 that they might bring up5927 853 the ark727 of the covenant1285 of the LORD3068 out of the city4480 5892 of David,1732 which1931 is Zion.6726

2  And all3605 the men376 of Israel3478 assembled themselves6950 unto413 king4428 Solomon8010 at the feast2282 in the month3391 Ethanim,388 which1931 is the seventh7637 month.2320

3  And all3605 the elders2205 of Israel3478 came,935 and the priests3548 took up5375 853 the ark.727

4  And they brought up5927 853 the ark727 of the LORD,3068 and the tabernacle168 of the congregation,4150 and all3605 the holy6944 vessels3627 that834 were in the tabernacle,168 even those did the priests3548 and the Levites3881 bring up.5927

5  And king4428 Solomon,8010 and all3605 the congregation5712 of Israel,3478 that were assembled3259 unto5921 him, were with854 him before6440 the ark,727 sacrificing2076 sheep6629 and oxen,1241 that834 could not3808 be told5608 nor3808 numbered4487 for multitude.4480 7230

6  And the priests3548 brought in935 853 the ark727 of the covenant1285 of the LORD3068 unto413 his place,4725 into413 the oracle1687 of the house,1004 to413 the most6944 holy6944 place, even under413 8478 the wings3671 of the cherubims.3742

7  For3588 the cherubims3742 spread forth6566 their two wings3671 over413 the place4725 of the ark,727 and the cherubims3742 covered5526 5921 the ark727 and the staves905 thereof above.4480 4605

8  And they drew out748 the staves,905 that the ends7218 of the staves905 were seen7200 out4480 in the holy6944 place before5921 6440 the oracle,1687 and they were not3808 seen7200 without:2351 and there8033 they are1961 unto5704 this2088 day.3117

9  There was nothing369 in the ark727 save7535 the two8147 tables3871 of stone,68 which834 Moses4872 put5117 there8033 at Horeb,2722 when834 the LORD3068 made3772 a covenant with5973 the children1121 of Israel,3478 when they came out3318 of the land4480 776 of Egypt.4714

10  And it came to pass,1961 when the priests3548 were come out3318 of4480 the holy6944 place, that the cloud6051 filled4390 853 the house1004 of the LORD,3068

11  So that the priests3548 could3201 not3808 stand5975 to minister8334 because4480 6440 of the cloud:6051 for3588 the glory3519 of the LORD3068 had filled4390 853 the house1004 of the LORD.3068

12  Then227 spoke559 Solomon,8010 The LORD3068 said559 that he would dwell7931 in the thick darkness.6205

13  I have surely built1129 1129 thee a house1004 to dwell in,2073 a settled place4349 for thee to abide in3427 forever.5769

14  And the king4428 turned5437 853 his face6440 about, and blessed1288 853 all3605 the congregation6951 of Israel:3478 (and all3605 the congregation6951 of Israel3478 stood;)5975

15  And he said,559 Blessed1288 be the LORD3068 God430 of Israel,3478 which834 spoke1696 with his mouth6310 unto854 David1732 my father,1 and hath with his hand3027 fulfilled4390 it, saying,559

16  Since4480 the day3117 that834 I brought forth3318 853 my people5971 853 Israel3478 out of Egypt,4480 4714 I chose977 no3808 city5892 out of all4480 3605 the tribes7626 of Israel3478 to build1129 a house,1004 that my name8034 might be1961 therein;8033 but I chose977 David1732 to be1961 over5921 my people5971 Israel.3478

17  And it was1961 in5973 the heart3824 of David1732 my father1 to build1129 a house1004 for the name8034 of the LORD3068 God430 of Israel.3478

18  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 David1732 my father,1 Whereas3282 834 it was1961 in5973 thine heart3824 to build1129 a house1004 unto my name,8034 thou didst well2895 that3588 it was1961 in5973 thine heart.3824

19  Nevertheless7535 thou859 shalt not3808 build1129 the house;1004 but3588 518 thy son1121 that shall come forth3318 out of thy loins,4480 2504 he1931 shall build1129 the house1004 unto my name.8034

20  And the LORD3068 hath performed6965 853 his word1697 that834 he spoke,1696 and I am risen up6965 in the room8478 of David1732 my father,1 and sit3427 on5921 the throne3678 of Israel,3478 as834 the LORD3068 promised,1696 and have built1129 a house1004 for the name8034 of the LORD3068 God430 of Israel.3478

21  And I have set7760 there8033 a place4725 for the ark,727 wherein834 8033 is the covenant1285 of the LORD,3068 which834 he made3772 with5973 our fathers,1 when he brought them out3318 853 of the land4480 776 of Egypt.4714

22  And Solomon8010 stood5975 before6440 the altar4196 of the LORD3068 in the presence5048 of all3605 the congregation6951 of Israel,3478 and spread forth6566 his hands3709 toward heaven:8064

23  And he said,559 LORD3068 God430 of Israel,3478 there is no369 God430 like thee,3644 in heaven8064 above,4480 4605 or on5921 earth776 beneath,4480 8478 who keepest8104 covenant1285 and mercy2617 with thy servants5650 that walk1980 before6440 thee with all3605 their heart:3820

24  Who834 hast kept8104 with thy servant5650 David1732 my father1 853 that834 thou promisedst1696 him: thou spakest1696 also with thy mouth,6310 and hast fulfilled4390 it with thine hand,3027 as it is this2088 day.3117

25  Therefore now,6258 LORD3068 God430 of Israel,3478 keep8104 with thy servant5650 David1732 my father1 853 that834 thou promisedst1696 him, saying,559 There shall not3808 fail3772 thee a man376 in my sight4480 6440 to sit3427 on5921 the throne3678 of Israel;3478 so7535 that518 thy children1121 take heed to8104 853 their way,1870 that they walk1980 before6440 me as834 thou hast walked1980 before6440 me.

26  And now,6258 O God430 of Israel,3478 let thy word,1697 I pray thee,4994 be verified,539 which834 thou spakest1696 unto thy servant5650 David1732 my father.1

27  But3588 will God430 indeed552 dwell3427 on5921 the earth?776 behold,2009 the heaven8064 and heaven8064 of heavens8064 cannot3808 contain3557 thee; how much less637 3588 this2088 house1004 that834 I have built?1129

28  Yet have thou respect6437 unto413 the prayer8605 of thy servant,5650 and to413 his supplication,8467 O LORD3068 my God,430 to hearken8085 unto413 the cry7440 and to413 the prayer,8605 which834 thy servant5650 prayeth6419 before6440 thee today:3117

29  That thine eyes5869 may be1961 open6605 toward413 this2088 house1004 night3915 and day,3117 even toward413 the place4725 of which834 thou hast said,559 My name8034 shall be1961 there:8033 that thou mayest hearken8085 unto413 the prayer8605 which834 thy servant5650 shall make6419 toward413 this2088 place.4725

30  And hearken8085 thou to413 the supplication8467 of thy servant,5650 and of thy people5971 Israel,3478 when834 they shall pray6419 toward413 this2088 place:4725 and hear8085 thou859 in413 heaven8064 thy dwelling3427 place:4725 and when thou hearest,8085 forgive.5545

31  853 If834 any man376 trespass2398 against his neighbor,7453 and an oath423 be laid5377 upon him to cause him to swear,422 and the oath422 come935 before6440 thine altar4196 in this2088 house:1004

32  Then hear8085 thou859 in heaven,8064 and do,6213 and judge8199 853 thy servants,5650 condemning7561 the wicked,7563 to bring5414 his way1870 upon his head;7218 and justifying6663 the righteous,6662 to give5414 him according to his righteousness.6666

33  When thy people5971 Israel3478 be smitten down5062 before6440 the enemy,341 because834 they have sinned2398 against thee, and shall turn again7725 to413 thee, and confess3034 853 thy name,8034 and pray,6419 and make supplication2603 unto413 thee in this2088 house:1004

34  Then hear8085 thou859 in heaven,8064 and forgive5545 the sin2403 of thy people5971 Israel,3478 and bring them again7725 unto413 the land127 which834 thou gavest5414 unto their fathers.1

35  When heaven8064 is shut up,6113 and there is1961 no3808 rain,4306 because3588 they have sinned2398 against thee; if they pray6419 toward413 this2088 place,4725 and confess3034 853 thy name,8034 and turn7725 from their sin,4480 2403 when3588 thou afflictest6031 them:

36  Then hear8085 thou859 in heaven,8064 and forgive5545 the sin2403 of thy servants,5650 and of thy people5971 Israel,3478 that3588 thou teach3384 them 853 the834 good2896 way1870 wherein they should walk,1980 and give5414 rain4306 upon5921 thy land,776 which834 thou hast given5414 to thy people5971 for an inheritance.5159

37  If3588 there be1961 in the land776 famine,7458 if3588 there be1961 pestilence,1698 blasting,7711 mildew,3420 locust,697 or if3588 there be1961 caterpillar;2625 if3588 their enemy341 besiege6887 them in the land776 of their cities;8179 whatsoever3605 plague,5061 whatsoever3605 sickness4245 there be;

38  What3605 prayer8605 and supplication8467 soever3605 834 be1961 made by any3605 man,120 or by all3605 thy people5971 Israel,3478 which834 shall know3045 every man376 the plague5061 of his own heart,3824 and spread forth6566 his hands3709 toward413 this2088 house:1004

39  Then hear8085 thou859 in heaven8064 thy dwelling3427 place,4349 and forgive,5545 and do,6213 and give5414 to every man376 according to3605 his ways,1870 whose834 853 heart3824 thou knowest;3045 (for3588 thou,859 even thou only,905 knowest3045 853 the hearts3824 of all3605 the children1121 of men;)120

40  That4616 they may fear3372 thee all3605 the days3117 that834 they1992 live2416 in5921 6440 the land127 which834 thou gavest5414 unto our fathers.1

41  Moreover1571 concerning413 a stranger,5237 that834 is not3808 of thy people4480 5971 Israel,3478 but cometh935 out of a far country4480 776 7350 for thy name's sake;4616 8034

42  (For3588 they shall hear of8085 853 thy great1419 name,8034 and of thy strong2389 hand,3027 and of thy stretched out5186 arm;)2220 when he shall come935 and pray6419 toward413 this2088 house;1004

43  Hear8085 thou859 in heaven8064 thy dwelling3427 place,4349 and do6213 according to all3605 that834 the stranger5237 calleth7121 to413 thee for: that4616 all3605 people5971 of the earth776 may know3045 853 thy name,8034 to fear3372 thee, as do thy people5971 Israel;3478 and that they may know3045 that3588 this2088 house,1004 which834 I have built,1129 is called7121 by5921 thy name.8034

44  If3588 thy people5971 go out3318 to battle4421 against5921 their enemy,341 whithersoever1870 834 thou shalt send7971 them, and shall pray6419 unto413 the LORD3068 toward1870 the city5892 which834 thou hast chosen,977 and toward the house1004 that834 I have built1129 for thy name:8034

45  Then hear8085 thou in heaven8064 853 their prayer8605 and their supplication,8467 and maintain6213 their cause.4941

46  If3588 they sin2398 against thee, (for3588 there is no369 man120 that834 sinneth2398 not,)3808 and thou be angry599 with them, and deliver5414 them to6440 the enemy,341 so that they carry them away7617 captives7617 unto413 the land776 of the enemy,341 far7350 or176 near;7138

47  Yet if they shall bethink themselves7725 413 3820 in the land776 whither834 8033 they were carried captives,7617 and repent,7725 and make supplication2603 unto413 thee in the land776 of them that carried them captives,7617 saying,559 We have sinned,2398 and have done perversely,5753 we have committed wickedness;7561

48  And so return7725 unto413 thee with all3605 their heart,3824 and with all3605 their soul,5315 in the land776 of their enemies,341 which834 led them away captive,7617 853 and pray6419 unto413 thee toward1870 their land,776 which834 thou gavest5414 unto their fathers,1 the city5892 which834 thou hast chosen,977 and the house1004 which834 I have built1129 for thy name:8034

49  Then hear8085 thou 853 their prayer8605 and their supplication8467 in heaven8064 thy dwelling3427 place,4349 and maintain6213 their cause,4941

50  And forgive5545 thy people5971 that834 have sinned2398 against thee, and all3605 their transgressions6588 wherein834 they have transgressed6586 against thee, and give5414 them compassion7356 before6440 them who carried them captive,7617 that they may have compassion on7355 them:

51  For3588 they1992 be thy people,5971 and thine inheritance,5159 which834 thou broughtest forth3318 out of Egypt,4480 4714 from the midst4480 8432 of the furnace3564 of iron:1270

52  That thine eyes5869 may be1961 open6605 unto413 the supplication8467 of thy servant,5650 and unto413 the supplication8467 of thy people5971 Israel,3478 to hearken8085 unto413 them in all3605 that they call7121 for unto413 thee.

53  For3588 thou859 didst separate914 them from among all4480 3605 the people5971 of the earth,776 to be thine inheritance,5159 as834 thou spakest1696 by the hand3027 of Moses4872 thy servant,5650 when thou broughtest3318 853 our fathers1 out of Egypt,4480 4714 O Lord136 GOD.3068

54  And it was1961 so, that when Solomon8010 had made an end3615 of praying6419 853 all3605 this2063 prayer8605 and supplication8467 unto413 the LORD,3068 he arose6965 from before4480 6440 the altar4196 of the LORD,3068 from kneeling4480 3766 on5921 his knees1290 with his hands3709 spread up6566 to heaven.8064

55  And he stood,5975 and blessed1288 853 all3605 the congregation6951 of Israel3478 with a loud1419 voice,6963 saying,559

56  Blessed1288 be the LORD,3068 that834 hath given5414 rest4496 unto his people5971 Israel,3478 according to all3605 that834 he promised:1696 there hath not3808 failed5307 one259 word1697 of all4480 3605 his good2896 promise,1697 which834 he promised1696 by the hand3027 of Moses4872 his servant.5650

57  The LORD3068 our God430 be1961 with5973 us, as834 he was1961 with5973 our fathers:1 let him not408 leave5800 us, nor408 forsake5203 us:

58  That he may incline5186 our hearts3824 unto413 him, to walk1980 in all3605 his ways,1870 and to keep8104 his commandments,4687 and his statutes,2706 and his judgments,4941 which834 he commanded6680 853 our fathers.1

59  And let these428 my words,1697 wherewith834 I have made supplication2603 before6440 the LORD,3068 be1961 nigh7138 unto413 the LORD3068 our God430 day3119 and night,3915 that he maintain6213 the cause4941 of his servant,5650 and the cause4941 of his people5971 Israel3478 at all times,3117 as the matter1697 shall require:3117

60  That4616 all3605 the people5971 of the earth776 may know3045 that3588 the LORD3068 is God,430 and that there is none369 else.5750

61  Let your heart3824 therefore be1961 perfect8003 with5973 the LORD3068 our God,430 to walk1980 in his statutes,2706 and to keep8104 his commandments,4687 as at this2088 day.3117

62  And the king,4428 and all3605 Israel3478 with5973 him, offered2076 sacrifice2077 before6440 the LORD.3068

63  And Solomon8010 offered2076 853 a sacrifice2077 of peace offerings,8002 which834 he offered2076 unto the LORD,3068 two8147 and twenty6242 thousand505 oxen,1241 and a hundred3967 and twenty6242 thousand505 sheep.6629 So the king4428 and all3605 the children1121 of Israel3478 dedicated2596 853 the house1004 of the LORD.3068

64  The same1931 day3117 did the king4428 hallow6942 853 the middle8432 of the court2691 that834 was before6440 the house1004 of the LORD:3068 for3588 there8033 he offered6213 853 burnt offerings,5930 and meat offerings,4503 and the fat2459 of the peace offerings:8002 because3588 the brazen5178 altar4196 that834 was before6440 the LORD3068 was too little6996 to receive4480 3557 853 the burnt offerings,5930 and meat offerings,4503 and the fat2459 of the peace offerings.8002

65  And at that1931 time6256 Solomon8010 held6213 853 a feast,2282 and all3605 Israel3478 with5973 him, a great1419 congregation,6951 from the entering in4480 935 of Hamath2574 unto5704 the river5158 of Egypt,4714 before6440 the LORD3068 our God,430 seven7651 days3117 and seven7651 days,3117 even fourteen702 6240 days.3117

66  On the eighth8066 day3117 he sent7971 853 the people5971 away: and they blessed1288 853 the king,4428 and went1980 unto their tents168 joyful8056 and glad2896 of heart3820 for5921 all3605 the goodness2896 that834 the LORD3068 had done6213 for David1732 his servant,5650 and for Israel3478 his people.5971


1 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ συντελέσαι Σαλωμων τοῦ οἰκοδομῆσαι τὸν οἶκον κυρίου καὶ τὸν οἶκον ἑαυτοῦ μετὰ εἴκοσι ἔτη τότε ἐξεκκλησίασεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμων πάντας τοὺς πρεσβυτέρους Ισραηλ ἐν Σιων τοῦ ἀνενεγκεῖν τὴν κιβωτὸν διαθήκης κυρίου ἐκ πόλεως Δαυιδ αὕτη ἐστὶν Σιων

2 ἐν μηνὶ Αθανιν

3 καὶ ἦραν οἱ ἱερεῖς τὴν κιβωτὸν

4 καὶ τὸ σκήνωμα τοῦ μαρτυρίου καὶ πάντα τὰ σκεύη τὰ ἅγια τὰ ἐν τῷ σκηνώματι τοῦ μαρτυρίου

5 καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ πᾶς Ισραηλ ἔμπροσθεν τῆς κιβωτοῦ θύοντες πρόβατα καὶ βόας ἀναρίθμητα

6 καὶ εἰσφέρουσιν οἱ ἱερεῖς τὴν κιβωτὸν εἰς τὸν τόπον αὐτῆς εἰς τὸ δαβιρ τοῦ οἴκου εἰς τὰ ἅγια τῶν ἁγίων ὑπὸ τὰς πτέρυγας τῶν χερουβιν

7 ὅτι τὰ χερουβιν διαπεπετασμένα ταῖς πτέρυξιν ἐπὶ τὸν τόπον τῆς κιβωτοῦ καὶ περιεκάλυπτον τὰ χερουβιν ἐπὶ τὴν κιβωτὸν καὶ ἐπὶ τὰ ἅγια αὐτῆς ἐπάνωθεν

8 καὶ ὑπερεῖχον τὰ ἡγιασμένα καὶ ἐνεβλέποντο αἱ κεφαλαὶ τῶν ἡγιασμένων ἐκ τῶν ἁγίων εἰς πρόσωπον τοῦ δαβιρ καὶ οὐκ ὠπτάνοντο ἔξω

9 οὐκ ἦν ἐν τῇ κιβωτῷ πλὴν δύο πλάκες λίθιναι πλάκες τῆς διαθήκης ἃς ἔθηκεν ἐκεῖ Μωυσῆς ἐν Χωρηβ ἃ διέθετο κύριος μετὰ τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ ἐν τῷ ἐκπορεύεσθαι αὐτοὺς ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου

10 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς ἐξῆλθον οἱ ἱερεῖς ἐκ τοῦ ἁγίου καὶ ἡ νεφέλη ἔπλησεν τὸν οἶκον

11 καὶ οὐκ ἠδύναντο οἱ ἱερεῖς στῆναι λειτουργεῖν ἀπὸ προσώπου τῆς νεφέλης ὅτι ἔπλησεν δόξα κυρίου τὸν οἶκον

14 καὶ ἀπέστρεψεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ καὶ εὐλόγησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς πάντα Ισραηλ καὶ πᾶσα ἐκκλησία Ισραηλ εἱστήκει

15 καὶ εἶπεν εὐλογητὸς κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ σήμερον ὃς ἐλάλησεν ἐν τῷ στόματι αὐτοῦ περὶ Δαυιδ τοῦ πατρός μου καὶ ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτοῦ ἐπλήρωσεν λέγων

16 ἀφ᾽ ἧς ἡμέρας ἐξήγαγον τὸν λαόν μου τὸν Ισραηλ ἐξ Αἰγύπτου οὐκ ἐξελεξάμην ἐν πόλει ἐν ἑνὶ σκήπτρῳ Ισραηλ τοῦ οἰκοδομῆσαι οἶκον τοῦ εἶναι τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐκεῖ καὶ ἐξελεξάμην ἐν Ιερουσαλημ εἶναι τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐκεῖ καὶ ἐξελεξάμην τὸν Δαυιδ τοῦ εἶναι ἐπὶ τὸν λαόν μου τὸν Ισραηλ

17 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐπὶ τῆς καρδίας Δαυιδ τοῦ πατρός μου οἰκοδομῆσαι οἶκον τῷ ὀνόματι κυρίου θεοῦ Ισραηλ

18 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Δαυιδ τὸν πατέρα μου ἀνθ᾽ ὧν ἦλθεν ἐπὶ τὴν καρδίαν σου τοῦ οἰκοδομῆσαι οἶκον τῷ ὀνόματί μου καλῶς ἐποίησας ὅτι ἐγενήθη ἐπὶ τὴν καρδίαν σου

19 πλὴν σὺ οὐκ οἰκοδομήσεις τὸν οἶκον ἀλλ᾽ ἣ ὁ υἱός σου ὁ ἐξελθὼν ἐκ τῶν πλευρῶν σου οὗτος οἰκοδομήσει τὸν οἶκον τῷ ὀνόματί μου

20 καὶ ἀνέστησεν κύριος τὸ ῥῆμα αὐτοῦ ὃ ἐλάλησεν καὶ ἀνέστην ἀντὶ Δαυιδ τοῦ πατρός μου καὶ ἐκάθισα ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου Ισραηλ καθὼς ἐλάλησεν κύριος καὶ ᾠκοδόμησα τὸν οἶκον τῷ ὀνόματι κυρίου θεοῦ Ισραηλ

21 καὶ ἐθέμην ἐκεῖ τόπον τῇ κιβωτῷ ἐν ᾗ ἐστιν ἐκεῖ διαθήκη κυρίου ἣν διέθετο κύριος μετὰ τῶν πατέρων ἡμῶν ἐν τῷ ἐξαγαγεῖν αὐτὸν αὐτοὺς ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου

22 καὶ ἔστη Σαλωμων κατὰ πρόσωπον τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου κυρίου ἐνώπιον πάσης ἐκκλησίας Ισραηλ καὶ διεπέτασεν τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸν οὐρανὸν

23 καὶ εἶπεν κύριε ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ οὐκ ἔστιν ὡς σὺ θεὸς ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ ἄνω καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς κάτω φυλάσσων διαθήκην καὶ ἔλεος τῷ δούλῳ σου τῷ πορευομένῳ ἐνώπιόν σου ἐν ὅλῃ τῇ καρδίᾳ αὐτοῦ

24 ἃ ἐφύλαξας τῷ δούλῳ σου Δαυιδ τῷ πατρί μου καὶ ἐλάλησας ἐν τῷ στόματί σου καὶ ἐν χερσίν σου ἐπλήρωσας ὡς ἡ ἡμέρα αὕτη

25 καὶ νῦν κύριε ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ φύλαξον τῷ δούλῳ σου τῷ Δαυιδ τῷ πατρί μου ἃ ἐλάλησας αὐτῷ λέγων οὐκ ἐξαρθήσεταί σου ἀνὴρ ἐκ προσώπου μου καθήμενος ἐπὶ θρόνου Ισραηλ πλὴν ἐὰν φυλάξωνται τὰ τέκνα σου τὰς ὁδοὺς αὐτῶν τοῦ πορεύεσθαι ἐνώπιον ἐμοῦ καθὼς ἐπορεύθης ἐνώπιον ἐμοῦ

26 καὶ νῦν κύριε ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ πιστωθήτω δὴ τὸ ῥῆμά σου τῷ Δαυιδ τῷ πατρί μου

27 ὅτι εἰ ἀληθῶς κατοικήσει ὁ θεὸς μετὰ ἀνθρώπων ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς εἰ ὁ οὐρανὸς καὶ ὁ οὐρανὸς τοῦ οὐρανοῦ οὐκ ἀρκέσουσίν σοι πλὴν καὶ ὁ οἶκος οὗτος ὃν ᾠκοδόμησα τῷ ὀνόματί σου

28 καὶ ἐπιβλέψῃ ἐπὶ τὴν δέησίν μου κύριε ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ ἀκούειν τῆς τέρψεως ἧς ὁ δοῦλός σου προσεύχεται ἐνώπιόν σου πρὸς σὲ σήμερον

29 τοῦ εἶναι ὀφθαλμούς σου ἠνεῳγμένους εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦτον ἡμέρας καὶ νυκτός εἰς τὸν τόπον ὃν εἶπας ἔσται τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐκεῖ τοῦ εἰσακούειν τῆς προσευχῆς ἧς προσεύχεται ὁ δοῦλός σου εἰς τὸν τόπον τοῦτον ἡμέρας καὶ νυκτός

30 καὶ εἰσακούσῃ τῆς δεήσεως τοῦ δούλου σου καὶ τοῦ λαοῦ σου Ισραηλ ἃ ἂν προσεύξωνται εἰς τὸν τόπον τοῦτον καὶ σὺ εἰσακούσῃ ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τῆς κατοικήσεώς σου ἐν οὐρανῷ καὶ ποιήσεις καὶ ἵλεως ἔσῃ

31 ὅσα ἂν ἁμάρτῃ ἕκαστος τῷ πλησίον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐὰν λάβῃ ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν ἀρὰν τοῦ ἀρᾶσθαι αὐτόν καὶ ἔλθῃ καὶ ἐξαγορεύσῃ κατὰ πρόσωπον τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου σου ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τούτῳ

32 καὶ σὺ εἰσακούσει ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ποιήσεις καὶ κρινεῖς τὸν λαόν σου Ισραηλ ἀνομηθῆναι ἄνομον δοῦναι τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτοῦ εἰς κεφαλὴν αὐτοῦ καὶ τοῦ δικαιῶσαι δίκαιον δοῦναι αὐτῷ κατὰ τὴν δικαιοσύνην αὐτοῦ

33 ἐν τῷ πταῖσαι τὸν λαόν σου Ισραηλ ἐνώπιον ἐχθρῶν ὅτι ἁμαρτήσονταί σοι καὶ ἐπιστρέψουσιν καὶ ἐξομολογήσονται τῷ ὀνόματί σου καὶ προσεύξονται καὶ δεηθήσονται ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τούτῳ

34 καὶ σὺ εἰσακούσῃ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἵλεως ἔσῃ ταῖς ἁμαρτίαις τοῦ λαοῦ σου Ισραηλ καὶ ἀποστρέψεις αὐτοὺς εἰς τὴν γῆν ἣν ἔδωκας τοῖς πατράσιν αὐτῶν

35 ἐν τῷ συσχεθῆναι τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ μὴ γενέσθαι ὑετόν ὅτι ἁμαρτήσονταί σοι καὶ προσεύξονται εἰς τὸν τόπον τοῦτον καὶ ἐξομολογήσονται τῷ ὀνόματί σου καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν αὐτῶν ἀποστρέψουσιν ὅταν ταπεινώσῃς αὐτούς

36 καὶ εἰσακούσῃ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἵλεως ἔσῃ ταῖς ἁμαρτίαις τοῦ δούλου σου καὶ τοῦ λαοῦ σου Ισραηλ ὅτι δηλώσεις αὐτοῖς τὴν ὁδὸν τὴν ἀγαθὴν πορεύεσθαι ἐν αὐτῇ καὶ δώσεις ὑετὸν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ἣν ἔδωκας τῷ λαῷ σου ἐν κληρονομίᾳ

37 λιμὸς ἐὰν γένηται θάνατος ἐὰν γένηται ὅτι ἔσται ἐμπυρισμός βροῦχος ἐρυσίβη ἐὰν γένηται καὶ ἐὰν θλίψῃ αὐτὸν ἐχθρὸς αὐτοῦ ἐν μιᾷ τῶν πόλεων αὐτοῦ πᾶν συνάντημα πᾶν πόνον

38 πᾶσαν προσευχήν πᾶσαν δέησιν ἐὰν γένηται παντὶ ἀνθρώπῳ ὡς ἂν γνῶσιν ἕκαστος ἁφὴν καρδίας αὐτοῦ καὶ διαπετάσῃ τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦτον

39 καὶ σὺ εἰσακούσῃ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἐξ ἑτοίμου κατοικητηρίου σου καὶ ἵλεως ἔσῃ καὶ ποιήσεις καὶ δώσεις ἀνδρὶ κατὰ τὰς ὁδοὺς αὐτοῦ καθὼς ἂν γνῷς τὴν καρδίαν αὐτοῦ ὅτι σὺ μονώτατος οἶδας τὴν καρδίαν πάντων υἱῶν ἀνθρώπων

40 ὅπως φοβῶνταί σε πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας ἃς αὐτοὶ ζῶσιν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ἧς ἔδωκας τοῖς πατράσιν ἡμῶν

41 καὶ τῷ ἀλλοτρίῳ ὃς οὐκ ἔστιν ἀπὸ λαοῦ σου οὗτος

42 καὶ ἥξουσιν καὶ προσεύξονται εἰς τὸν τόπον τοῦτον

43 καὶ σὺ εἰσακούσῃ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἐξ ἑτοίμου κατοικητηρίου σου καὶ ποιήσεις κατὰ πάντα ὅσα ἂν ἐπικαλέσηταί σε ὁ ἀλλότριος ὅπως γνῶσιν πάντες οἱ λαοὶ τὸ ὄνομά σου καὶ φοβῶνταί σε καθὼς ὁ λαός σου Ισραηλ καὶ γνῶσιν ὅτι τὸ ὄνομά σου ἐπικέκληται ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον τοῦτον ὃν ᾠκοδόμησα

44 ὅτι ἐξελεύσεται ὁ λαός σου εἰς πόλεμον ἐπὶ τοὺς ἐχθροὺς αὐτοῦ ἐν ὁδῷ ᾗ ἐπιστρέψεις αὐτούς καὶ προσεύξονται ἐν ὀνόματι κυρίου ὁδὸν τῆς πόλεως ἧς ἐξελέξω ἐν αὐτῇ καὶ τοῦ οἴκου οὗ ᾠκοδόμησα τῷ ὀνόματί σου

45 καὶ εἰσακούσει ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ τῆς δεήσεως αὐτῶν καὶ τῆς προσευχῆς αὐτῶν καὶ ποιήσεις τὸ δικαίωμα αὐτοῖς

46 ὅτι ἁμαρτήσονταί σοι ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν ἄνθρωπος ὃς οὐχ ἁμαρτήσεται καὶ ἐπάξεις ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς καὶ παραδώσεις αὐτοὺς ἐνώπιον ἐχθρῶν καὶ αἰχμαλωτιοῦσιν αὐτοὺς οἱ αἰχμαλωτίζοντες εἰς γῆν μακρὰν καὶ ἐγγύς

47 καὶ ἐπιστρέψουσιν καρδίας αὐτῶν ἐν τῇ γῇ οὗ μετήχθησαν ἐκεῖ καὶ ἐπιστρέψωσιν καὶ δεηθῶσίν σου ἐν γῇ μετοικίας αὐτῶν λέγοντες ἡμάρτομεν ἠνομήσαμεν ἠδικήσαμεν

48 καὶ ἐπιστρέψωσιν πρὸς σὲ ἐν ὅλῃ καρδίᾳ αὐτῶν καὶ ἐν ὅλῃ ψυχῇ αὐτῶν ἐν τῇ γῇ ἐχθρῶν αὐτῶν οὗ μετήγαγες αὐτούς καὶ προσεύξονται πρὸς σὲ ὁδὸν γῆς αὐτῶν ἧς ἔδωκας τοῖς πατράσιν αὐτῶν τῆς πόλεως ἧς ἐξελέξω καὶ τοῦ οἴκου οὗ ᾠκοδόμηκα τῷ ὀνόματί σου

49 καὶ εἰσακούσῃ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἐξ ἑτοίμου κατοικητηρίου σου

50 καὶ ἵλεως ἔσῃ ταῖς ἀδικίαις αὐτῶν αἷς ἥμαρτόν σοι καὶ κατὰ πάντα τὰ ἀθετήματα αὐτῶν ἃ ἠθέτησάν σοι καὶ δώσεις αὐτοὺς εἰς οἰκτιρμοὺς ἐνώπιον αἰχμαλωτευόντων αὐτούς καὶ οἰκτιρήσουσιν αὐτούς

51 ὅτι λαός σου καὶ κληρονομία σου οὓς ἐξήγαγες ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου ἐκ μέσου χωνευτηρίου σιδήρου

52 καὶ ἔστωσαν οἱ ὀφθαλμοί σου καὶ τὰ ὦτά σου ἠνεῳγμένα εἰς τὴν δέησιν τοῦ δούλου σου καὶ εἰς τὴν δέησιν τοῦ λαοῦ σου Ισραηλ εἰσακούειν αὐτῶν ἐν πᾶσιν οἷς ἂν ἐπικαλέσωνταί σε

53 ὅτι σὺ διέστειλας αὐτοὺς σαυτῷ εἰς κληρονομίαν ἐκ πάντων τῶν λαῶν τῆς γῆς καθὼς ἐλάλησας ἐν χειρὶ δούλου σου Μωυσῆ ἐν τῷ ἐξαγαγεῖν σε τοὺς πατέρας ἡμῶν ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου κύριε κύριε
τότε ἐλάλησεν Σαλωμων ὑπὲρ τοῦ οἴκου ὡς συνετέλεσεν τοῦ οἰκοδομῆσαι αὐτόν ἥλιον ἐγνώρισεν ἐν οὐρανῷ κύριος εἶπεν τοῦ κατοικεῖν ἐν γνόφῳ οἰκοδόμησον οἶκόν μου οἶκον ἐκπρεπῆ σαυτῷ τοῦ κατοικεῖν ἐπὶ καινότητος οὐκ ἰδοὺ αὕτη γέγραπται ἐν βιβλίῳ τῆς ᾠδῆς

54 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς συνετέλεσεν Σαλωμων προσευχόμενος πρὸς κύριον ὅλην τὴν προσευχὴν καὶ τὴν δέησιν ταύτην καὶ ἀνέστη ἀπὸ προσώπου τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου κυρίου ὀκλακὼς ἐπὶ τὰ γόνατα αὐτοῦ καὶ αἱ χεῖρες αὐτοῦ διαπεπετασμέναι εἰς τὸν οὐρανόν

55 καὶ ἔστη καὶ εὐλόγησεν πᾶσαν ἐκκλησίαν Ισραηλ φωνῇ μεγάλῃ λέγων

56 εὐλογητὸς κύριος σήμερον ὃς ἔδωκεν κατάπαυσιν τῷ λαῷ αὐτοῦ Ισραηλ κατὰ πάντα ὅσα ἐλάλησεν οὐ διεφώνησεν λόγος εἷς ἐν πᾶσιν τοῖς λόγοις αὐτοῦ τοῖς ἀγαθοῖς οἷς ἐλάλησεν ἐν χειρὶ Μωυσῆ δούλου αὐτοῦ

57 γένοιτο κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν καθὼς ἦν μετὰ τῶν πατέρων ἡμῶν μὴ ἐγκαταλίποιτο ἡμᾶς μηδὲ ἀποστρέψοιτο ἡμᾶς

58 ἐπικλῖναι καρδίας ἡμῶν πρὸς αὐτὸν τοῦ πορεύεσθαι ἐν πάσαις ὁδοῖς αὐτοῦ καὶ φυλάσσειν πάσας τὰς ἐντολὰς αὐτοῦ καὶ προστάγματα αὐτοῦ ἃ ἐνετείλατο τοῖς πατράσιν ἡμῶν

59 καὶ ἔστωσαν οἱ λόγοι οὗτοι οὓς δεδέημαι ἐνώπιον κυρίου θεοῦ ἡμῶν ἐγγίζοντες πρὸς κύριον θεὸν ἡμῶν ἡμέρας καὶ νυκτὸς τοῦ ποιεῖν τὸ δικαίωμα τοῦ δούλου σου καὶ τὸ δικαίωμα λαοῦ σου Ισραηλ ῥῆμα ἡμέρας ἐν ἡμέρᾳ αὐτοῦ

60 ὅπως γνῶσιν πάντες οἱ λαοὶ τῆς γῆς ὅτι κύριος ὁ θεός αὐτὸς θεὸς καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι

61 καὶ ἔστωσαν αἱ καρδίαι ἡμῶν τέλειαι πρὸς κύριον θεὸν ἡμῶν καὶ ὁσίως πορεύεσθαι ἐν τοῖς προστάγμασιν αὐτοῦ καὶ φυλάσσειν ἐντολὰς αὐτοῦ ὡς ἡ ἡμέρα αὕτη

62 καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ πάντες οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ἔθυσαν θυσίαν ἐνώπιον κυρίου

63 καὶ ἔθυσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμων τὰς θυσίας τῶν εἰρηνικῶν ἃς ἔθυσεν τῷ κυρίῳ βοῶν δύο καὶ εἴκοσι χιλιάδας καὶ προβάτων ἑκατὸν εἴκοσι χιλιάδας καὶ ἐνεκαίνισεν τὸν οἶκον κυρίου ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ πάντες οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ

64 τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἡγίασεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τὸ μέσον τῆς αὐλῆς τὸ κατὰ πρόσωπον τοῦ οἴκου κυρίου ὅτι ἐποίησεν ἐκεῖ τὴν ὁλοκαύτωσιν καὶ τὰς θυσίας καὶ τὰ στέατα τῶν εἰρηνικῶν ὅτι τὸ θυσιαστήριον τὸ χαλκοῦν τὸ ἐνώπιον κυρίου μικρὸν τοῦ μὴ δύνασθαι τὴν ὁλοκαύτωσιν καὶ τὰς θυσίας τῶν εἰρηνικῶν ὑπενεγκεῖν

65 καὶ ἐποίησεν Σαλωμων τὴν ἑορτὴν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ καὶ πᾶς Ισραηλ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἐκκλησία μεγάλη ἀπὸ τῆς εἰσόδου Ημαθ ἕως ποταμοῦ Αἰγύπτου ἐνώπιον κυρίου θεοῦ ἡμῶν ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ ᾧ ᾠκοδόμησεν ἐσθίων καὶ πίνων καὶ εὐφραινόμενος ἐνώπιον κυρίου θεοῦ ἡμῶν ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας

66 καὶ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ὀγδόῃ ἐξαπέστειλεν τὸν λαὸν καὶ εὐλόγησεν αὐτόν καὶ ἀπῆλθον ἕκαστος εἰς τὰ σκηνώματα αὐτοῦ χαίροντες καὶ ἀγαθῇ καρδίᾳ ἐπὶ τοῖς ἀγαθοῖς οἷς ἐποίησεν κύριος τῷ Δαυιδ δούλῳ αὐτοῦ καὶ τῷ Ισραηλ λαῷ αὐτοῦ

1 Tunc congregati sunt omnes majores natu Israël cum principibus tribuum, et duces familiarum filiorum Israël, ad regem Salomonem in Jerusalem, ut deferrent arcam fœderis Domini de civitate David, id est, de Sion.

2 Convenitque ad regem Salomonem universus Israël in mense Ethanim, in solemni die: ipse est mensis septimus.

3 Veneruntque cuncti senes de Israël, et tulerunt arcam sacerdotes,

4 et portaverunt arcam Domini, et tabernaculum fœderis, et omnia vasa sanctuarii quæ erant in tabernaculo: et ferebant ea sacerdotes et Levitæ.

5 Rex autem Salomon, et omnis multitudo Israël quæ convenerat ad eum, gradiebatur cum illo ante arcam, et immolabant oves et boves absque æstimatione et numero.

6 Et intulerunt sacerdotes arcam fœderis Domini in locum suum, in oraculum templi, in Sanctum sanctorum, subter alas cherubim.

7 Siquidem cherubim expandebant alas super locum arcæ, et protegebant arcam, et vectes ejus desuper.

8 Cumque eminerent vectes, et apparerent summitates eorum foris sanctuarium ante oraculum, non apparebant ultra extrinsecus, qui et fuerunt ibi usque in præsentem diem.

9 In arca autem non erat aliud nisi duæ tabulæ lapideæ quas posuerat in ea Moyses in Horeb, quando pepigit Dominus fœdus cum filiis Israël, cum egrederentur de terra Ægypti.

10 Factum est autem cum exissent sacerdotes de sanctuario, nebula implevit domum Domini,

11 et non poterant sacerdotes stare et ministrare propter nebulam: impleverat enim gloria Domini domum Domini.

12 Tunc ait Salomon: Dominus dixit ut habitaret in nebula.

13 Ædificans ædificavi domum in habitaculum tuum: firmissimum solium tuum in sempiternum.

14 Convertitque rex faciem suam, et benedixit omni ecclesiæ Israël: omnia enim ecclesia Israël stabat.

15 Et ait Salomon: Benedictus Dominus Deus Israël, qui locutus est ore suo ad David patrem meum, et in manibus ejus perfecit, dicens:

16 A die qua eduxi populum meum Israël de Ægypto, non elegi civitatem de universis tribubus Israël, ut ædificaretur domus, et esset nomen meum ibi: sed elegi David ut esset super populum meum Israël.

17 Voluitque David pater meus ædificare domum nomini Domini Dei Israël:

18 et ait Dominus ad David patrem meum: Quod cogitasti in corde tuo ædificare domum nomini meo, bene fecisti, hoc ipsum mente tractans.

19 Verumtamen tu non ædificabis mihi domum, sed filius tuus, qui egredietur de renibus tuis, ipse ædificabit domum nomini meo.

20 Confirmavit Dominus sermonem suum quem locutus est: stetique pro David patre meo, et sedi super thronum Israël, sicut locutus est Dominus: et ædificavi domum nomini Domini Dei Israël.

21 Et constitui ibi locum arcæ in qua fœdus Domini est, quod percussit cum patribus nostris quando egressi sunt de terra Ægypti.

22 Stetit autem Salomon ante altare Domini in conspectu ecclesiæ Israël, et expandit manus suas in cælum,

23 et ait: Domine Deus Israël, non est similis tui deus in cælo desuper, et super terram deorsum: qui custodis pactum et misericordiam servis tuis qui ambulant coram te in toto corde suo.

24 Qui custodisti servo tuo David patri meo quæ locutus es ei: ore locutus es, et manibus perfecisti, ut hæc dies probat.

25 Nunc igitur Domine Deus Israël, conserva famulo tuo David patri meo quæ locutus es ei, dicens: Non auferetur de te vir coram me, qui sedeat super thronum Israël: ita tamen si custodierint filii tui viam suam, ut ambulent coram me sicut tu ambulasti in conspectu meo.

26 Et nunc Domine Deus Israël, firmentur verba tua quæ locutus es servo tuo David patri meo.

27 Ergone putandum est quod vere Deus habitet super terram? si enim cælum, et cæli cælorum, te capere non possunt, quanto magis domus hæc, quam ædificavi?

28 Sed respice ad orationem servi tui, et ad preces ejus, Domine Deus meus: audi hymnum et orationem quam servus tuus orat coram te hodie:

29 ut sint oculi tui aperti super domum hanc nocte ac die: super domum, de qua dixisti: Erit nomen meum ibi: ut exaudias orationem quam orat in loco isto ad te servus tuus:

30 ut exaudias deprecationem servi tui et populi tui Israël, quodcumque oraverint in loco isto, et exaudies in loco habitaculi tui in cælo: et cum exaudieris, propitius eris.

31 Si peccaverit homo in proximum suum, et habuerit aliquod juramentum quo teneatur astrictus, et venerit propter juramentum coram altari tuo in domum tuam,

32 tu exaudies in cælo: et facies, et judicabis servos tuos, condemnans impium, et reddens viam suam super caput ejus, justificansque justum, et retribuens ei secundum justitiam suam.

33 Si fugerit populus tuus Israël inimicos suos (quia peccaturus est tibi), et agentes pœnitentiam, et confitentes nomini tuo, venerint, et oraverint, et deprecati te fuerint in domo hac:

34 exaudi in cælo, et dimitte peccatum populi tui Israël, et reduces eos in terram quam dedisti patribus eorum.

35 Si clausum fuerit cælum, et non pluerit propter peccata eorum, et orantes in loco isto, pœnitentiam egerint nomini tuo, et a peccatis suis conversi fuerint propter afflictionem suam:

36 exaudi eos in cælo, et dimitte peccata servorum tuorum, et populi tui Israël: et ostende eis viam bonam per quam ambulent, et da pluviam super terram tuam, quam dedisti populo tuo in possessionem.

37 Fames si oborta fuerit in terra, aut pestilentia, aut corruptus aër, aut ærugo, aut locusta, vel rubigo, et afflixerit eum inimicus ejus portas obsidens: omnis plaga, universa infirmitas,

38 cuncta devotatio, et imprecatio quæ acciderit omni homini de populo tuo Israël: si quis cognoverit plagam cordis sui, et expanderit manus suas in domo hac,

39 tu exaudies in cælo in loco habitationis tuæ, et repropitiaberis, et facies ut des unicuique secundum omnes vias suas, sicut videris cor ejus (quia tu nosti solus cor omnium filiorum hominum),

40 ut timeant te cunctis diebus quibus vivunt super faciem terræ quam dedisti patribus nostris.

41 Insuper et alienigena, qui non est de populo tuo Israël, cum venerit de terra longinqua propter nomen tuum (audietur enim nomen tuum magnum, et manus tua fortis, et brachium tuum

42 extentum ubique), cum venerit ergo, et oraverit in hoc loco,

43 tu exaudies in cælo, in firmamento habitaculi tui, et facies omnia pro quibus invocaverit te alienigena: ut discant universi populi terrarum nomen tuum timere, sicut populus tuus Israël, et probent quia nomen tuum invocatum est super domum hanc quam ædificavi.

44 Si egressus fuerit populus tuus ad bellum contra inimicos suos per viam, quocumque miseris eos, orabunt te contra viam civitatis quam elegisti, et contra domum quam ædificavi nomini tuo,

45 et exaudies in cælo orationes eorum et preces eorum, et facies judicium eorum.

46 Quod si peccaverint tibi (non est enim homo qui non peccet) et iratus tradideris eos inimicis suis, et captivi ducti fuerint in terram inimicorum longe vel prope,

47 et egerint pœnitentiam in corde suo in loco captivitatis, et conversi deprecati te fuerint in captivitate sua, dicentes: Peccavimus: inique egimus, impie gessimus:

48 et reversi fuerint ad te in universo corde suo et tota anima sua in terra inimicorum suorum, ad quam captivi ducti fuerint: et oraverint te contra viam terræ suæ, quam dedisti patribus eorum, et civitatis quam elegisti, et templi quod ædificavi nomini tuo:

49 exaudies in cælo, in firmamento solii tui, orationes eorum et preces eorum, et facies judicium eorum:

50 et propitiaberis populo tuo qui peccavit tibi, et omnibus iniquitatibus eorum quibus prævaricati sunt in te: et dabis misericordiam coram eis qui eos captivos habuerint, ut misereantur eis.

51 Populus enim tuus est, et hæreditas tua, quos eduxisti de terra Ægypti, de medio fornacis ferreæ.

52 Ut sint oculi tui aperti ad deprecationem servi tui, et populi tui Israël, et exaudias eos in universis pro quibus invocaverint te.

53 Tu enim separasti eos tibi in hæreditatem de universis populis terræ, sicut locutus es per Moysen servum tuum quando eduxisti patres nostros de Ægypto, Domine Deus.

54 Factum est autem, cum complesset Salomon orans Dominum omnem orationem et deprecationem hanc, surrexit de conspectu altaris Domini: utrumque enim genu in terram fixerat, et manus expanderat in cælum.

55 Stetit ergo, et benedixit omni ecclesiæ Israël voce magna, dicens:

56 Benedictus Dominus, qui dedit requiem populo suo Israël, juxta omnia quæ locutus est: non cecidit ne unus quidem sermo ex omnibus bonis quæ locutus est per Moysen servum suum.

57 Sit Dominus Deus noster nobiscum, sicut fuit cum patribus nostris, non derelinquens nos, neque projiciens.

58 Sed inclinet corda nostra ad se, ut ambulemus in universis viis ejus, et custodiamus mandata ejus, et cæremonias ejus, et judicia quæcumque mandavit patribus nostris.

59 Et sint sermones mei isti, quibus deprecatus sum coram Domino, appropinquantes Domino Deo nostro die ac nocte, ut faciat judicium servo suo, et populo suo Israël per singulos dies:

60 ut sciant omnes populi terræ quia Dominus ipse est Deus, et non est ultra absque eo.

61 Sit quoque cor nostrum perfectum cum Domino Deo nostro, ut ambulemus in decretis ejus, et custodiamus mandata ejus, sicut et hodie.

62 Igitur rex, et omnis Israël cum eo, immolabant victimas coram Domino.

63 Mactavitque Salomon hostias pacificas, quas immolavit Domino, boum viginti duo millia, et ovium centum viginti millia: et dedicaverunt templum Domini rex et filii Israël.

64 In die illa sanctificavit rex medium atrii quod erat ante domum Domini: fecit quippe holocaustum ibi, et sacrificium, et adipem pacificorum: quoniam altare æreum quod erat coram Domino, minus erat, et capere non poterat holocaustum, et sacrificium, et adipem pacificorum.

65 Fecit ergo Salomon in tempore illo festivitatem celebrem, et omnis Israël cum eo, multitudo magna ab introitu Emath usque ad rivum Ægypti, coram Domino Deo nostro, septem diebus et septem diebus, id est, quatuordecim diebus.

66 Et in die octava dimisit populos: qui benedicentes regi, profecti sunt in tabernacula sua lætantes, et alacri corde super omnibus bonis quæ fecerat Dominus David servo suo, et Israël populo suo.
