1 Kings 9


1  And it came to pass,1961 when Solomon8010 had finished3615 the building1129 of 853 the house1004 of the LORD,3068 and the king's4428 house,1004 and all3605 Solomon's8010 desire2837 which834 he was pleased2654 to do,6213

2  That the LORD3068 appeared7200 to413 Solomon8010 the second time,8145 as834 he had appeared7200 unto413 him at Gibeon.1391

3  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 him, I have heard8085 853 thy prayer8605 and thy supplication,8467 that834 thou hast made2063 before6440 me: I have hallowed6942 853 this2088 house,1004 which834 thou hast built,1129 to put7760 my name8034 there8033 forever;5704 5769 and mine eyes5869 and mine heart3820 shall be1961 there8033 perpetually.3605 3117

4  And if518 thou859 wilt walk1980 before6440 me, as834 David1732 thy father1 walked,1980 in integrity8537 of heart,3824 and in uprightness,3476 to do6213 according to all3605 that834 I have commanded6680 thee, and wilt keep8104 my statutes2706 and my judgments:4941

5  Then I will establish6965 853 the throne3678 of thy kingdom4467 upon5921 Israel3478 forever,5769 as834 I promised1696 to5921 David1732 thy father,1 saying,559 There shall not3808 fail3772 thee a man376 upon4480 5921 the throne3678 of Israel.3478

6  But if518 ye shall at all turn7725 7725 from following4480 310 me, ye859 or your children,1121 and will not3808 keep8104 my commandments4687 and my statutes2708 which834 I have set5414 before6440 you, but go1980 and serve5647 other312 gods,430 and worship7812 them:

7  Then will I cut off3772 853 Israel3478 out of4480 5921 6440 the land127 which834 I have given5414 them; and this house,1004 which834 I have hallowed6942 for my name,8034 will I cast7971 out of4480 5921 my sight;6440 and Israel3478 shall be1961 a proverb4912 and a byword8148 among all3605 people:5971

8  And at this2088 house,1004 which is1961 high,5945 every one3605 that passeth5674 by5921 it shall be astonished,8074 and shall hiss;8319 and they shall say,559 Why4100 hath the LORD3068 done6213 thus3602 unto this2063 land,776 and to this2088 house?1004

9  And they shall answer,559 Because5921 834 they forsook5800 853 the LORD3068 their God,430 who834 brought forth3318 853 their fathers1 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt,4714 and have taken hold2388 upon other312 gods,430 and have worshiped7812 them, and served5647 them: therefore5921 3651 hath the LORD3068 brought935 upon5921 them 853 all3605 this2063 evil.7451

10  And it came to pass1961 at the end4480 7097 of twenty6242 years,8141 when834 Solomon8010 had built1129 853 the two8147 houses,1004 853 the house1004 of the LORD,3068 and the king's4428 house,1004

11  (Now Hiram2438 the king4428 of Tyre6865 had furnished5375 853 Solomon8010 with cedar730 trees6086 and fir1265 trees,6086 and with gold,2091 according to all3605 his desire,)2656 that then227 king4428 Solomon8010 gave5414 Hiram2438 twenty6242 cities5892 in the land776 of Galilee.1551

12  And Hiram2438 came out3318 from Tyre4480 6865 to see7200 853 the cities5892 which834 Solomon8010 had given5414 him; and they pleased3474 5869 him not.3808

13  And he said,559 What4100 cities5892 are these428 which834 thou hast given5414 me, my brother?251 And he called7121 them the land776 of Cabul3521 unto5704 this2088 day.3117

14  And Hiram2438 sent7971 to the king4428 sixscore3967 6242 talents3603 of gold.2091

15  And this2088 is the reason1697 of the levy4522 which834 king4428 Solomon8010 raised;5927 for to build1129 853 the house1004 of the LORD,3068 and his own house,1004 and Millo,4407 and the wall2346 of Jerusalem,3389 and Hazor,2674 and Megiddo,4023 and Gezer.1507

16  For Pharaoh6547 king4428 of Egypt4714 had gone up,5927 and taken3920 853 Gezer,1507 and burnt8313 it with fire,784 and slain2026 the Canaanites3669 that dwelt3427 in the city,5892 and given5414 it for a present7964 unto his daughter,1323 Solomon's8010 wife.802

17  And Solomon8010 built1129 853 Gezer,1507 and Beth-horon1032 the nether,8481

18  And Baalath,1191 and Tadmor8412 in the wilderness,4057 in the land,776

19  And all3605 the cities5892 of store4543 that834 Solomon8010 had,1961 and cities5892 for his chariots,7393 and cities5892 for his horsemen,6571 and that which834 Solomon8010 desired2836 to build1129 in Jerusalem,3389 and in Lebanon,3844 and in all3605 the land776 of his dominion.4475

20  And all3605 the people5971 that were left3498 of4480 the Amorites,567 Hittites,2850 Perizzites,6522 Hivites,2340 and Jebusites,2983 which834 were not3808 of the children4480 1121 of Israel,3478

21  Their children1121 that834 were left3498 after310 them in the land,776 whom834 the children1121 of Israel3478 also were not3808 able3201 utterly to destroy,2763 upon those did Solomon8010 levy5927 a tribute of bondservice4522 5647 unto5704 this2088 day.3117

22  But of the children4480 1121 of Israel3478 did Solomon8010 make5414 no3808 bondmen:5650 but3588 they1992 were men376 of war,4421 and his servants,5650 and his princes,8269 and his captains,7991 and rulers8269 of his chariots,7393 and his horsemen.6571

23  These428 were the chief8269 of the officers5324 that834 were over5921 Solomon's8010 work,4399 five2568 hundred3967 and fifty,2572 which bare rule7287 over the people5971 that wrought6213 in the work.4399

24  But389 Pharaoh's6547 daughter1323 came up5927 out of the city4480 5892 of David1732 unto413 her house1004 which834 Solomon had built1129 for her: then227 did he build1129 853 Millo.4407

25  And three7969 times6471 in a year8141 did Solomon8010 offer5927 burnt offerings5930 and peace offerings8002 upon5921 the altar4196 which834 he built1129 unto the LORD,3068 and he burnt incense6999 upon854 the altar that834 was before6440 the LORD.3068 So he finished7999 853 the house.1004

26  And king4428 Solomon8010 made6213 a navy of ships590 in Ezion-geber,6100 which834 is beside854 Eloth,359 on5921 the shore8193 of the Red5488 sea,3220 in the land776 of Edom.123

27  And Hiram2438 sent7971 in the navy590 853 his servants,5650 shipmen376 591 that had knowledge3045 of the sea,3220 with5973 the servants5650 of Solomon.8010

28  And they came935 to Ophir,211 and fetched3947 from thence4480 8033 gold,2091 four702 hundred3967 and twenty6242 talents,3603 and brought935 it to413 king4428 Solomon.8010


1 καὶ ἐγενήθη ὡς συνετέλεσεν Σαλωμων οἰκοδομεῖν τὸν οἶκον κυρίου καὶ τὸν οἶκον τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν πραγματείαν Σαλωμων ὅσα ἠθέλησεν ποιῆσαι

2 καὶ ὤφθη κύριος τῷ Σαλωμων δεύτερον καθὼς ὤφθη ἐν Γαβαων

3 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτὸν κύριος ἤκουσα τῆς φωνῆς τῆς προσευχῆς σου καὶ τῆς δεήσεώς σου ἧς ἐδεήθης ἐνώπιον ἐμοῦ πεποίηκά σοι κατὰ πᾶσαν τὴν προσευχήν σου ἡγίακα τὸν οἶκον τοῦτον ὃν ᾠκοδόμησας τοῦ θέσθαι τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐκεῖ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα καὶ ἔσονται οἱ ὀφθαλμοί μου ἐκεῖ καὶ ἡ καρδία μου πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας

4 καὶ σὺ ἐὰν πορευθῇς ἐνώπιον ἐμοῦ καθὼς ἐπορεύθη Δαυιδ ὁ πατήρ σου ἐν ὁσιότητι καρδίας καὶ ἐν εὐθύτητι καὶ τοῦ ποιεῖν κατὰ πάντα ἃ ἐνετειλάμην αὐτῷ καὶ τὰ προστάγματά μου καὶ τὰς ἐντολάς μου φυλάξῃς

5 καὶ ἀναστήσω τὸν θρόνον τῆς βασιλείας σου ἐπὶ Ισραηλ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα καθὼς ἐλάλησα τῷ Δαυιδ πατρί σου λέγων οὐκ ἐξαρθήσεταί σοι ἀνὴρ ἡγούμενος ἐν Ισραηλ

6 ἐὰν δὲ ἀποστραφέντες ἀποστραφῆτε ὑμεῖς καὶ τὰ τέκνα ὑμῶν ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ μὴ φυλάξητε τὰς ἐντολάς μου καὶ τὰ προστάγματά μου ἃ ἔδωκεν Μωυσῆς ἐνώπιον ὑμῶν καὶ πορευθῆτε καὶ δουλεύσητε θεοῖς ἑτέροις καὶ προσκυνήσητε αὐτοῖς

7 καὶ ἐξαρῶ τὸν Ισραηλ ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς ἧς ἔδωκα αὐτοῖς καὶ τὸν οἶκον τοῦτον ὃν ἡγίασα τῷ ὀνόματί μου ἀπορρίψω ἐκ προσώπου μου καὶ ἔσται Ισραηλ εἰς ἀφανισμὸν καὶ εἰς λάλημα εἰς πάντας τοὺς λαούς

8 καὶ ὁ οἶκος οὗτος ὁ ὑψηλός πᾶς ὁ διαπορευόμενος δι᾽ αὐτοῦ ἐκστήσεται καὶ συριεῖ καὶ ἐροῦσιν ἕνεκα τίνος ἐποίησεν κύριος οὕτως τῇ γῇ ταύτῃ καὶ τῷ οἴκῳ τούτῳ

9 καὶ ἐροῦσιν ἀνθ᾽ ὧν ἐγκατέλιπον κύριον θεὸν αὐτῶν ὃς ἐξήγαγεν τοὺς πατέρας αὐτῶν ἐξ Αἰγύπτου ἐξ οἴκου δουλείας καὶ ἀντελάβοντο θεῶν ἀλλοτρίων καὶ προσεκύνησαν αὐτοῖς καὶ ἐδούλευσαν αὐτοῖς διὰ τοῦτο ἐπήγαγεν κύριος ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς τὴν κακίαν ταύτην
τότε ἀνήγαγεν Σαλωμων τὴν θυγατέρα Φαραω ἐκ πόλεως Δαυιδ εἰς οἶκον αὐτοῦ ὃν ᾠκοδόμησεν ἑαυτῷ ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις

10 εἴκοσι ἔτη ἐν οἷς ᾠκοδόμησεν Σαλωμων τοὺς δύο οἴκους τὸν οἶκον κυρίου καὶ τὸν οἶκον τοῦ βασιλέως

11 Χιραμ βασιλεὺς Τύρου ἀντελάβετο τοῦ Σαλωμων ἐν ξύλοις κεδρίνοις καὶ ἐν ξύλοις πευκίνοις καὶ ἐν χρυσίῳ καὶ ἐν παντὶ θελήματι αὐτοῦ τότε ἔδωκεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τῷ Χιραμ εἴκοσι πόλεις ἐν τῇ γῇ τῇ Γαλιλαίᾳ

12 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν Χιραμ ἐκ Τύρου καὶ ἐπορεύθη εἰς τὴν Γαλιλαίαν τοῦ ἰδεῖν τὰς πόλεις ἃς ἔδωκεν αὐτῷ Σαλωμων καὶ οὐκ ἤρεσαν αὐτῷ

13 καὶ εἶπεν τί αἱ πόλεις αὗται ἃς ἔδωκάς μοι ἀδελφέ καὶ ἐκάλεσεν αὐτάς ὅριον ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης

14 καὶ ἤνεγκεν Χιραμ τῷ Σαλωμων ἑκατὸν καὶ εἴκοσι τάλαντα χρυσίου

26 καὶ ναῦν ὑπὲρ οὗ ἐποίησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμων ἐν Γασιωνγαβερ τὴν οὖσαν ἐχομένην Αιλαθ ἐπὶ τοῦ χείλους τῆς ἐσχάτης θαλάσσης ἐν γῇ Εδωμ

27 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Χιραμ ἐν τῇ νηὶ τῶν παίδων αὐτοῦ ἄνδρας ναυτικοὺς ἐλαύνειν εἰδότας θάλασσαν μετὰ τῶν παίδων Σαλωμων

28 καὶ ἦλθον εἰς Σωφηρα καὶ ἔλαβον ἐκεῖθεν χρυσίου ἑκατὸν καὶ εἴκοσι τάλαντα καὶ ἤνεγκαν τῷ βασιλεῖ Σαλωμων

1 Factum est autem cum perfecisset Salomon ædificium domus Domini, et ædificium regis, et omne quod optaverat et voluerat facere,

2 apparuit ei Dominus secundo, sicut apparuerat ei in Gabaon.

3 Dixitque Dominus ad eum: Exaudivi orationem tuam et deprecationem tuam, quam deprecatus es coram me: sanctificavi domum hanc quam ædificasti, ut ponerem nomen meum ibi in sempiternum, et erunt oculi mei et cor meum ibi cunctis diebus.

4 Tu quoque si ambulaveris coram me sicut ambulavit pater tuus, in simplicitate cordis et in æquitate, et feceris omnia quæ præcepi tibi, et legitima mea et judicia mea servaveris,

5 ponam thronum regni tui super Israël in sempiternum, sicut locutus sum David patri tuo, dicens: Non auferetur vir de genere tuo de solio Israël.

6 Si autem aversione aversi fueritis vos et filii vestri, non sequentes me, nec custodientes mandata mea et cæremonias meas quas proposui vobis, sed abieritis et colueritis deos alienos, et adoraveritis eos:

7 auferam Israël de superficie terræ quam dedi eis, et templum quod sanctificavi nomini meo, projiciam a conspectu meo: eritque Israël in proverbium, et in fabulam cunctis populis.

8 Et domus hæc erit in exemplum: omnis qui transierit per eam, stupebit, et sibilabit, et dicet: Quare fecit Dominus sic terræ huic, et domui huic?

9 Et respondebunt: Quia dereliquerunt Dominum Deum suum, qui eduxit patres eorum de terra Ægypti, et secuti sunt deos alienos, et adoraverunt eos, et coluerunt eos: idcirco induxit Dominus super eos omne malum hoc.

10 Expletis autem annis viginti postquam ædificaverat Salomon duas domos, id est, domum Domini, et domum regis

11 (Hiram rege Tyri præbente Salomoni ligna cedrina et abiegna, et aurum juxta omne quod opus habuerat), tunc dedit Salomon Hiram viginti oppida in terra Galilææ.

12 Et egressus est Hiram de Tyro ut videret oppida quæ dederat ei Salomon, et non placuerunt ei.

13 Et ait: Hæccine sunt civitates quas dedisti mihi, frater? Et appellavit eas terram Chabul, usque in diem hanc.

14 Misit quoque Hiram ad regem Salomonem centum viginti talenta auri.

15 Hæc est summa expensarum quam obtulit rex Salomon ad ædificandam domum Domini et domum suam, et Mello, et murum Jerusalem, et Heser, et Mageddo, et Gazer.

16 Pharao rex Ægypti ascendit, et cepit Gazar, succenditque eam igni, et Chananæum, qui habitabat in civitate, interfecit: et dedit eam in dotem filiæ suæ uxori Salomonis.

17 Ædificavit ergo Salomon Gazer, et Bethoron inferiorem,

18 et Balaath, et Palmiram in terra solitudinis.

19 Et omnes vicos qui ad se pertinebant et erant absque muro, munivit, et civitates curruum et civitates equitum, et quodcumque ei placuit ut ædificaret in Jerusalem, et in Libano, et in omni terra potestatis suæ.

20 Universum populum qui remanserat de Amorrhæis, et Hethæis, et Pherezæis, et Hevæis, et Jebusæis, qui non sunt de filiis Israël:

21 horum filios qui remanserant in terra, quos scilicet non potuerant filii Israël exterminare, fecit Salomon tributarios usque in diem hanc.

22 De filiis autem Israël non constituit Salomon servire quemquam, sed erant viri bellatores, et ministri ejus, et principes, et duces, et præfecti curruum et equorum.

23 Erant autem principes super omnia opera Salomonis præpositi quingenti quinquaginta, qui habebant subjectum populum, et statutis operibus imperabant.

24 Filia autem Pharaonis ascendit de civitate David in domum suam, quam ædificaverat ei Salomon: tunc ædificavit Mello.

25 Offerebat quoque Salomon, tribus vicibus per annos singulos, holocausta et pacificas victimas super altare quod ædificaverat Domino, et adolebat thymiama coram Domino: perfectumque est templum.

26 Classem quoque fecit rex Salomon in Asiongaber, quæ est juxta Ailath in littore maris Rubri, in terra Idumææ.

27 Misitque Hiram in classe illa servos suos viros nauticos et gnaros maris, cum servis Salomonis.

28 Qui cum venissent in Ophir, sumptum inde aurum quadringentorum viginti talentorum, detulerunt ad regem Salomonem.
