1 H1732 Furthermore David H4428 the king H559 [H8799] said H6951 to all the congregation H8010 , Solomon H1121 my son H259 , whom alone H430 God H977 [H8804] hath 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 [H8689] Now I have prepared H3581 with all 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 H4394 , and stones to be set H6320 , glittering H68 stones H7553 , and of various colours H3368 , and all manner of precious H68 stones H7893 , and marble H68 stones H7230 in abundance.
3 H7521 [H8800] Moreover, because I have set my affection H1004 to the house H430 of my God H3426 , I have H5459 of my own possessions H2091 , of gold H3701 and silver H5414 [H8804] , which I have given H1004 to the house H430 of my God H4605 , over and above H3559 [H8689] all 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 [H8794] of refined H3701 silver H2902 [H8800] , to overlay H7023 the walls H1004 of the houses:
5 H2091 The gold H2091 for things of gold H3701 , and the silver H3701 for things of silver H4399 , and for all manner of work H3027 to be made by the hands H2796 of craftsmen H5068 [H8693] . And who then is willing H4390 [H8763] to consecrate H3027 his service H3117 this day H3068 to the LORD?
6 H8269 Then the heads 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 over the king's H4399 work H5068 [H8691] , offered willingly,
7 H5414 [H8799] 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 thousand H150 drams H3701 , and of silver H6235 ten H505 thousand H3603 talents H5178 , and of brass H8083 H7239 eighteen H505 thousand H3603 talents H3967 , and one hundred H505 thousand H3603 talents H1270 of iron.
8 H68 And they with whom precious stones H4672 [H8737] were found H5414 [H8804] gave H214 them to the treasury H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD H3027 , by the hand H3171 of Jehiel H1649 the Gershonite.
9 H5971 Then the people H8055 [H8799] rejoiced H5068 [H8692] , for that they offered willingly H8003 , because with perfect H3820 heart H5068 [H8694] they offered willingly H3068 to the LORD H1732 : and David H4428 the king H8055 [H8804] also rejoiced H1419 with great H8057 joy.
10 H1732 Therefore David H1288 [H8762] blessed H3068 the LORD H5869 before H6951 all the congregation H1732 : and David H559 [H8799] said H1288 [H8803] , Blessed H3068 be thou, LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel H1 our father H5704 , for H5769 ever H5769 and ever.
11 H3068 Thine, O LORD H1420 , is the greatness H1369 , and the power H8597 , and the glory H5331 , and the victory H1935 , and the majesty H8064 : for all that is in the heaven H776 and on the earth H4467 is thine; thine is the kingdom H3068 , O LORD H4984 [H8693] , and thou art exalted H7218 as head above all.
12 H6239 Both riches H3519 and honour H6440 come from thee H4910 [H8802] , and thou reignest H3027 over all; and in thy hand H3581 is power H1369 and might H3027 ; and in thy hand H1431 [H8763] it is to make great H2388 [H8763] , and to give strength to all.
13 H430 Now therefore, our God H3034 [H8688] , we thank H1984 [H8764] thee, and praise H8597 thy glorious H8034 name.
14 H5971 But who am I, and what is my people H6113 [H8799] , that we should be H3581 able H5068 [H8692] to offer so willingly H3027 after this sort? for all things come from thee, and of thy own H5414 [H8804] have we given thee.
15 H1616 For we are strangers H6440 before H8453 thee, and sojourners H1 , as were all our fathers H3117 : our days H776 on the earth H6738 are as a shadow H4723 , and there is no abiding.
16 H3068 O LORD H430 our God H1995 , all this abundance H3559 [H8689] that we have prepared H1129 [H8800] to build H1004 thee an house H6944 for thy holy H8034 name H3027 cometh from thy hand, and is all thy own.
17 H3045 [H8804] I know H430 also, my God H974 [H8802] , that thou triest H3824 the heart H7521 [H8799] , and hast pleasure H3476 in uprightness H4339 . As for me, in the uprightness H3824 of my heart H5068 [H8694] I have willingly offered H7200 [H8804] all these things: and now have I seen H8057 with joy H5971 thy people H4672 [H8738] , who are present H5068 [H8692] here, to offer willingly to thee.
18 H3068 O LORD H430 God H85 of Abraham H3327 , Isaac H3478 , and of Israel H1 , our fathers H8104 [H8798] , keep H5769 this for ever H3336 in the imagination H4284 of the thoughts H3824 of the heart H5971 of thy people H3559 [H8685] , and prepare H3824 their heart to thee:
19 H5414 [H8798] And give H8010 to Solomon H1121 my son H8003 a perfect H3824 heart H8104 [H8800] , to keep H4687 thy commandments H5715 , thy testimonies H2706 , and thy statutes H6213 [H8800] , and to do H1129 [H8800] all these things, and to build H1002 the palace H3559 [H8689] , for which I have made provision.
20 H1732 And David H559 [H8799] said H6951 to all the congregation H1288 [H8761] , Now bless H3068 the LORD H430 your God H6951 . And all the congregation H1288 [H8762] blessed H3068 the LORD H430 God H1 of their fathers H6915 [H8799] , and bowed their heads H7812 [H8691] , and worshipped H3068 the LORD H4428 , and the king.
21 H2076 [H8799] And they sacrificed H2077 sacrifices H3068 to the LORD H5927 [H8686] , and offered H5930 burnt offerings H3068 to the LORD H4283 , on the day H3117 following that day H505 , even a thousand H6499 bulls H505 , a thousand H352 rams H505 , and a thousand H3532 lambs H5262 , with their drink offerings H2077 , and sacrifices H7230 in abundance H3478 for all Israel:
22 H398 [H8799] And ate H8354 [H8799] and drank 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 H4427 [H8686] king H8145 the second time H4886 [H8799] , and anointed H3068 him to the LORD H5057 to be the chief governor H6659 , and Zadok H3548 to be priest.
23 H8010 Then Solomon H3427 [H8799] sat on H3678 the throne H3068 of the LORD H4428 as king H1732 instead of David H1 his father H6743 [H8686] , and prospered H3478 ; and all Israel H8085 [H8799] obeyed him.
24 H8269 And all the princes H1368 , and the mighty men H1121 , and all the sons H4428 likewise of king H1732 David H5414 H3027 H8478 [H8804] , submitted themselves H8010 to Solomon H4428 the king.
25 H3068 And the LORD H1431 [H8762] magnified H8010 Solomon H4605 exceedingly H5869 in the sight H3478 of all Israel H5414 [H8799] , and bestowed H4438 upon him such royal H1935 majesty H4428 as had not been on any king H6440 before H3478 him in Israel.
27 H3117 And the time H4427 [H8804] that he reigned H3478 over Israel H705 was forty H8141 years H7651 ; seven H8141 years H4427 [H8804] he reigned H2275 in Hebron H7970 , and thirty H7969 and three H4427 [H8804] years he reigned H3389 in Jerusalem.
28 H4191 [H8799] And he died H2896 in a good H7872 old age H7649 , full H3117 of days H6239 , riches H3519 , and honour H8010 : and Solomon H1121 his son H4427 [H8799] reigned in his stead.
29 H1697 Now the acts H1732 of David H4428 the king H7223 , first H314 and last H3789 [H8803] , behold, they are written H1697 in the book H8050 of Samuel H7200 [H8802] the seer H1697 , and in the book H5416 of Nathan H5030 the prophet H1697 , and in the book H1410 of Gad H2374 the seer,
