2 Chronicles 2

ECB(i) 1
And Shelomoh says to build a house for the name of Yah Veh and a house for his sovereigndom: 2 and Shelomoh scribes seventy thousand men - burdenbearers and eighty thousand men to hew in the mountain and three thousand and six hundred to oversee them. 3 And Shelomoh sends to Hiram the sovereign of Sor, saying, When you worked with David my father you sent him cedars to build a house to settle in: 4 behold, I build a house to the name of Yah Veh my Elohim to hallow to him and to incense incense of aromatics at his face and for the continual arrangement and for the holocausts morning and evening on the shabbaths and on the new moons and on the festivals of Yah Veh our Elohim: this is eternally to Yisra El: 5 and the house I build is great: for great is our Elohim above all elohim. 6 But who obtains force to build him a house, seeing the heavens and the heavens of the heavens contain him not? Who am I to build him a house, except to incense at his face? 7 And now, send me a wise man to work in gold and in silver and in copper and in iron and in purple and crimson and blue - who percieves to engrave engravings with the wise who are with me in Yah Hudah and in Yeru Shalem - whom David my father prepared: 8 and send me cedar trees, cypress trees and algumim trees from Lebanon: for I know that your servants perceive to cut timber in Lebanon; and behold, my servants are with your servants; 9 even to prepare me timber in abundance: for the house I build is marvellous and great. 10 And behold, I give your servants - the choppers who cut timber twenty thousand kors of struck wheat and twenty thousand kors of barley and twenty thousand baths of wine and twenty thousand baths of oil. 11 And Hiram the sovereign of Sor says in inscribings he sends to Shelomoh, Because Yah Veh loves his people he gives you sovereign over them. 12 Hiram says, Blessed - Yah Veh Elohim of Yisra El who works the heavens and earth; who gave David the sovereign a wise son knowing comprehension and discernment to build a house for Yah Veh and a house for his sovereigndom. 13 And now I send a wise man of Hiram my father who knows discernment; 14 the son of a woman of the daughters of Dan and his father is a Soriy; who perceives to work in gold and in silver, in copper, in iron, in stone and in timber, in purple, in blue and in bleached linen and in crimson; and to engrave any engraving and to fabricate any fabrication given him; with your wise and with the wise of my adoni David your father. 15 And now, the wheat and the barley, the oil and the wine, of which my adoni says, Have him send to his servants: 16 and we - we cut timber from Lebanon - as much as you need: and we bring it to you in rafts by sea to Yapho; and you ascend it to Yeru Shalem. 17 And Shelomoh scribes all the men sojourners in the land of Yisra El, after the scribing David his father scribed them; and they find a hundred and fifty thousand and three thousand and six hundred. 18 And he works seventy thousand burdenbearers and eighty thousand hewers in the mountain and three thousand and six hundred overseers to serve the people who serve.
