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 guests H6440 before H8453 thee, and resident aliens, 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 to the age 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,
