1 H1732 Furthermore David H4428 the king H559 said H3605 to all H6951 the congregation, H8010 Solomon H1121 my son, H259 whom alone H430 God H977 has chosen, H5288 is yet young H7390 and tender, H4399 and the work H1419 is great: H1002 for the palace H120 is not for man, H3068 but for the LORD H430 God.
2 H3559 Now I have prepared H3605 with all H3581 my might H1004 for the house H430 of my God H2091 the gold H2091 for things to be made of gold, H3701 and the silver H3701 for things of silver, H5178 and the brass H5178 for things of brass, H1270 the iron H1270 for things of iron, H6086 and wood H6086 for things of wood; H7718 onyx H68 stones, H68 and stones H4394 to be set, H6320 glistering H68 stones, H7553 and of divers H7553 colors, H3605 and all H3368 manner of precious H68 stones, H7893 and marble H68 stones H7230 in abundance.
3 H5750 Moreover, H7521 because I have set my affection H1004 to the house H430 of my God, H3426 I have H5459 of my own proper H2091 good, of gold H3701 and silver, H5414 which I have given H1004 to the house H430 of my God, H5921 over H4605 and above H3605 all H3559 that I have prepared H6944 for the holy H1004 house.
4 H7969 Even three H505 thousand H3603 talents H2091 of gold, H2091 of the gold H211 of Ophir, H7651 and seven H505 thousand H3603 talents H2212 of refined H3701 silver, H2902 to overlay H7023 the walls H1004 of the houses with:
5 H2091 The gold H2091 for things of gold, H3701 and the silver H3701 for things of silver, H3605 and for all H4399 manner of work H3027 to be made by the hands H2796 of artificers. H4310 And who H5068 then is willing H4390 to consecrate H3027 H3027 his service H3117 this day H3068 to the LORD?
6 H8269 Then the chief H1 of the fathers H8269 and princes H7626 of the tribes H3478 of Israel H8269 and the captains H505 of thousands H3967 and of hundreds, H8269 with the rulers H4428 of the king’s H4399 work, H5068 offered willingly,
7 H5414 And gave H5656 for the service H1004 of the house H430 of God H2091 of gold H2568 five H505 thousand H3603 talents H7239 and ten H7239 thousand H150 drams, H3701 and of silver H6235 ten H505 thousand H3603 talents, H5178 and of brass H7239 eighteen H8083 H7239 thousand H505 H3603 talents, H3967 and one hundred H7239 thousand H505 H3603 talents H1270 of iron.
8 H834 And they with whom H68 precious stones H4672 were found H5414 gave H214 them to the treasure H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD, H3027 by the hand H3171 of Jehiel H1649 the Gershonite.
9 H5971 Then the people H8055 rejoiced, H5068 for that they offered willingly, H3588 because H8003 with perfect H3820 heart H5068 they offered willingly H3068 to the LORD: H1732 and David H4428 the king H1571 also H8055 rejoiced H1419 with great H8057 joy.
10 H1732 Why David H1288 blessed H3068 the LORD H5869 before H3605 all H6951 the congregation: H1732 and David H559 said, H1288 Blessed H3068 be you, LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel H25 our father, H5769 for ever H5769 and ever.
11 H3068 Yours, O LORD H1420 is the greatness, H1369 and the power, H8597 and the glory, H5331 and the victory, H1935 and the majesty: H3605 for all H8064 that is in the heaven H776 and in the earth H4467 is yours; your is the kingdom, H3068 O LORD, H5375 and you are exalted H7218 as head H3605 above all.
12 H6239 Both riches H3519 and honor H4910 come of you, and you reign H4605 over H3605 all; H3027 and in your hand H3581 is power H1369 and might; H3027 and in your hand H1431 it is to make great, H2388 and to give strength H3605 to all.
13 H6258 Now H430 therefore, our God, H3034 we thank H1984 you, and praise H8597 your glorious H8034 name.
14 H4310 But who H4310 am I, and what H5971 is my people, H6113 that we should be able H3581 H5068 to offer so willingly H2063 after this H3605 sort? for all H5414 things come of you, and of your own have we given you.
15 H1616 For we are strangers H6440 before H8453 you, and sojourners, H3605 as were all H1 our fathers: H3117 our days H5921 on H776 the earth H6738 are as a shadow, H369 and there is none H4723 abiding.
16 H3068 O LORD H430 our God, H3605 all H2088 this H1995 store H3559 that we have prepared H1129 to build H1004 you an house H6944 for your holy H8034 name H3027 comes of your hand, H3605 and is all your own.
17 H3045 I know H430 also, my God, H974 that you try H3824 the heart, H7521 and have pleasure H3476 in uprightness. H4339 As for me, in the uprightness H3824 of my heart H5068 I have willingly H3605 offered all H428 these H6258 things: and now H7200 have I seen H8057 with joy H5971 your people, H4672 which are present H6311 here, H5068 to offer willingly to you.
18 H3068 O LORD H430 God H85 of Abraham, H3327 Isaac, H3478 and of Israel, H1 our fathers, H8104 keep H2063 this H5769 for ever H3336 in the imagination H4284 of the thoughts H3824 of the heart H5971 of your people, H3559 and prepare H3824 their heart to you:
19 H5414 And give H8010 to Solomon H1121 my son H8003 a perfect H3824 heart, H8104 to keep H4687 your commandments, H5715 your testimonies, H2706 and your statutes, H6213 and to do H3605 all H1129 these things, and to build H1002 the palace, H834 for the which H3559 I have made provision.
20 H1732 And David H559 said H3605 to all H6951 the congregation, H4994 Now H1288 bless H3068 the LORD H430 your God. H3605 And all H6951 the congregation H1288 blessed H3068 the LORD H430 God H1 of their fathers, H6915 and bowed H6915 down H7218 their heads, H7812 and worshipped H3068 the LORD, H4428 and the king.
21 H2076 And they sacrificed H2077 sacrifices H3068 to the LORD, H5927 and offered H5930 burnt H3068 offerings to the LORD, H4283 on the morrow H3117 after that day, H505 even a thousand H6499 bullocks, H505 a thousand H352 rams, H505 and a thousand H3532 lambs, H5262 with their drink H2077 offerings, and sacrifices H7230 in abundance H3605 for all H3478 Israel:
22 H398 And did eat H8354 and drink H6440 before H3068 the LORD H3117 on that day H1419 with great H8057 gladness. H8010 And they made Solomon H1121 the son H1732 of David H4428 king H8145 the second H4886 time, and anointed H3068 him to the LORD H5057 to be the chief H5057 governor, H6659 and Zadok H3548 to be priest.
23 H8010 Then Solomon H3427 sat H5921 on H3678 the throne H3068 of the LORD H4428 as king H8478 instead H1732 of David H25 his father, H6743 and prospered; H3605 and all H3478 Israel H8085 obeyed him.
24 H3605 And all H8269 the princes, H1368 and the mighty H3605 men, and all H1121 the sons H1571 likewise H4428 of king H1732 David, H5414 submitted H3027 H8010 themselves to Solomon H4428 the king.
25 H3068 And the LORD H1431 magnified H8010 Solomon H4605 exceedingly H5869 in the sight H3605 of all H3478 Israel, H5414 and bestowed H4438 on him such royal H1935 majesty H1961 as had H1961 not been H5921 on H3605 any H4428 king H6440 before H3478 him in Israel.
27 H3117 And the time H4427 that he reigned H5921 over H3478 Israel H705 was forty H8141 years; H7651 seven H8141 years H4427 reigned H2275 he in Hebron, H7970 and thirty H7969 and three H8141 years H4427 reigned H3389 he in Jerusalem.
28 H4191 And he died H2896 in a good H7872 old H7872 age, H7646 full H3117 of days, H6239 riches, H3519 and honor: H8010 and Solomon H1121 his son H4427 reigned H8478 in his stead.
29 H1697 Now the acts H1732 of David H4428 the king, H7223 first H314 and last, H2009 behold, H3789 they are written H1697 in the book H8050 of Samuel H7200 the seer, H1697 and in the book H5416 of Nathan H5030 the prophet, H1697 and in the book H1410 of Gad H2374 the seer,
