Coverdale(i) 1 And wha Salomo had ended his praier, there fell a fyre from heauen, and cosumed the burntofferynge and the other offeringes. And the glory of the LORDE fylled the house, 2 so that ye prestes coulde not go in to the house of the LORDE, while ye glory of the LORDE filled ye LORDES house. 3 And all the children of Israel sawe the fyre fall downe, and the glory of the LORDE ouer the house: and they fell on their knees wt their faces to the grounde vpon the pauement, and worshipped, and gaue thankes vnto the LORDE, because he is gracious, and because his mercy endureth for euer. 4 As for the kynge and all the people, they offred before the LORDE. 5 For kynge Salomon offred two and twetye thousande bullockes, and an hundreth thousande and twentye thousande shepe, & so both the kynge and all the people dedicated the house of God. 6 But the prestes stode in their watches, & the Leuites with the musicall instrumentes of the LORDE, which kynge Dauid had caused to make for to geue thankes vnto the LORDE, (because his mercy endureth for euer) wt psalmes of Dauid thorow their hande. And the prestes blewe trompettes ouer agaynst them, and all Israel stode. 7 And Salomon halowed the myddelmost courte, which was before the house of the LORDE, for there prepared he the burntofferynges and the fat of the slayne offeringes: for the brasen altare that Salomon made, might not conteyne all the burntofferinges, meatofferynges, and the fat. 8 And at the same tyme helde Salomon a feast seuen daies longe, and all Israel with him a very greate congregacion, from Hemath vnto the ryuer of Egipte, 9 and on the eight daye helde he a conuocacion. For the dedicacion of the altare helde they seuen daies, and the feast seuen dayes also. 10 But on the thre and twentyeth daye of the seuenth moneth he let the people go vnto their tentes ioyfull and with mery hertes because of all the good, that the LORDE had done vnto Dauid, vnto Salomo, and to his people of Israel. 11 Thus fynished Salomo the house of ye LORDE, and the kinges house, and all yt came in his hert to make in the house of the LORDE, and in his awne house, prosperously. 12 And the LORDE appeared vnto Salomon in the nighte season, and sayde vnto him: I haue herde thy prayer and chosen this place vnto my selfe for an house of sacrifyce. 13 Beholde, whan I shut the heaue so yt it raine not, or commaunde the greshopper to cosume the londe, or cause a pestilence to come amonge my people, 14 to humble my people, which is named after my name: and yf they praye, and seke my face, and turne from their euell wayes, the wyl I heare them from heauen, and wyll forgeue their sinne, and heale their londe. 15 So shal myne eyes now be open, and myne eares shal be attente vnto prayer in this place. 16 Thus haue I now chosen this house, and sanctifyed it, that my name maye be there for euer: and myne eyes and my hert shal allwaye be there. 17 And yf thou walke before me, as thy father Dauid walked, so that thou do all that I commaunde the, and kepe myne ordinauces and lawes, 18 then wyll I stablishe the seate of thy kyngdome, acordynge as I promysed thy father Dauid, and sayde: Thou shalt not wante a man to be lorde ouer Israel. 19 But yf ye turne backe, and forsake myne ordynaunces and commaundemetes which I haue layed before you, and so go youre waye, and serue other goddes, and worshippe them, 20 the wyll I rote you out of my londe that I haue geuen you: and this house which I haue sanctifyed vnto my name, wil I cast awaye out of my presence, and geue it ouer to be a byworde and fabell amoge all nacions. 21 And euery one that goeth by, shall be astonnyed at this hye house, and shall hysse at it, and saye: Wherfore hath the LORDE dealte thus with this londe and with this house? 22 Then shall it be sayde: Euen because they haue forsaken the LORDE God of their fathers (which brought them out of the londe of Egipte) & haue cleued vnto other goddes, & worshipped them, and serued the: therfore hath he brought all this euell vpon the.
