CAB(i) 5 for you to use the gold for things of gold, and the silver for things of silver, and for every work by the hand of the artificers. And who is willing to dedicate himself in work this day for the Lord? 6 Then the heads of families, and the princes of the children of Israel, and the captains of thousands and captains of hundreds, and the overseers of the works, and the king's builders, offered willingly. 7 And they gave for the works of the house of the Lord five thousand talents of gold, and ten thousand gold pieces, and ten thousand talents of silver, and eighteen thousand talents of bronze, and a hundred thousand talents of iron. 8 And those who had precious stones gave them into the treasuries of the house of the Lord by the hand of Jehiel the Gershonite. 9 And the people rejoiced because of the willingness, for they offered willingly to the Lord with a full heart; and King David rejoiced greatly. 10 And King David blessed the Lord before the congregation, saying, Blessed are You, O Lord God of Israel, our Father, from everlasting and to everlasting. 11 Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the might; for You are Lord of all things that are in heaven and upon the earth; before Your face every king and nation is troubled. 12 From You come wealth and glory. You, O Lord, rule over all, the Lord of all dominion, and in Your hand is strength and rule; and You are almighty with Your hand to increase and establish all things. 13 And now, O Lord, we give thanks to You, and praise Your glorious name. 14 But who am I, and what is my people, that we have been able to be thus forward in offering to You? For all things are Yours, and of Your own have we given You, 15 for we are strangers before You, and sojourners, as all our fathers were; our days upon the earth are as a shadow, and there is no remaining. 16 O Lord our God, as for all this abundance which I have prepared that a house should be built to Your holy name, it is of Your hand, and all is Yours. 17 And I know, O Lord, that You are He that searches the hearts, and You love righteousness. I have willingly offered all these things in simplicity of heart. And now I have seen with joy Your people, who are present here, willingly offering to You.
