1 Factum est autem cum perfecisset Salomon aedificium domus Domini et aedificium regis et omne, quod optaverat et voluerat facere,
2 apparuit ei Dominus secundo, sicut apparuerat ei in Gabaon.
3 Dixitque Dominus ad eum: "Exaudivi orationem tuam et deprecationem tuam, quam deprecatus es coram me; sanctificavi domum hanc, quam aedificasti, ut ponerem nomen meum ibi in sempiternum; et erunt oculi mei et cor meum ibi cunctis diebus.
4 Tu quoque, si ambulaveris coram me, sicut ambulavit David pater tuus in simplicitate cordis et in aequitate, et feceris omnia, quae praecepi tibi, et legitima mea et iudicia mea servaveris,
5 ponam thronum regni tui super Israel in sempiternum, sicut locutus sum David patri tuo dicens: Non auferetur de genere tuo vir de solio Israel.
6 Si autem aversione aversi fueritis vos et filii vestri non sequentes me nec custodientes mandata mea et decreta mea, quae proposui vobis, sed abieritis et colueritis deos alienos et adoraveritis eos,
7 auferam Israel de superficie terrae, quam dedi eis, et templum, quod sanctificavi nomini meo, proiciam a conspectu meo; eritque Israel in proverbium et in fabulam cunctis populis,
8 et domus haec erit in ruinas. Omnis, qui transierit per eam, stupebit et sibilabit et dicet: "Quare fecit Dominus sic terrae huic et domui huic?".
9 Et respondebunt: "Quia dereliquerunt Dominum Deum suum, qui eduxit patres eorum de terra Aegypti, et secuti sunt deos alienos et adoraverunt eos et coluerunt eos; idcirco induxit Dominus super eos omne malum hoc" ".
10 Expletis autem annis viginti, postquam aedificaverat Salomon duas domos, id est domum Domini et domum regis
11 - Hiram rege Tyri praebente Salomoni ligna cedrina et abiegna et aurum iuxta omne quod opus habuerat - tunc dedit Salomon Hiram viginti oppida in terra Galilaeae.
12 Et egressus est Hiram de Tyro, ut videret oppida, quae dederat ei Salomon, et non placuerunt ei;
13 et ait: "Haeccine sunt civitates, quas dedisti mihi, frater?". Et appellavit eas terram Chabul usque in diem hanc.
14 Misit quoque Hiram ad regem centum viginti talenta auri.
15 Haec est summa indictionis, quam constituit rex Salomon ad aedificandam domum Domini et domum suam et Mello et murum Ierusalem et Asor et Mageddo et Gazer.
16 Pharao rex Aegypti ascendit et cepit Gazer succenditque eam igni et Chananaeum, qui habitabat in civitate, interfecit; et dedit eam in dotem filiae suae uxori Salomonis.
17 Aedificavit ergo Salomon Gazer et Bethoron inferiorem
18 et Baalath et Thamar in terra solitudinis
19 et omnes civitates horreorum, quae ad se pertinebant, et civitates curruum et civitates equorum et quodcumque ei placuit, ut aedificaret in Ierusalem et in Libano et in omni terra potestatis suae.
20 Universum populum, qui remanserat de Amorraeis et Hetthaeis et Pherezaeis et Hevaeis et Iebusaeis, qui non erant de filiis Israel,
21 horum filios, qui remanserant post eos in terra, quos scilicet non potuerant filii Israel exterminare, fecit Salomon tributarios usque in diem hanc.
22 De filiis autem Israel non constituit Salomon servire quemquam, sed erant viri bellatores et ministri eius et principes et pugnatores eius et praefecti curruum et equitum.
23 Erant autem principes eorum, qui super omnia opera Salomonis praepositi erant, quingenti quinquaginta; qui habebant subiectum populum et statutis operibus imperabant.
24 Filia autem pharaonis ascendit de civitate David in domum suam, quam aedificaverat ei; tunc aedificavit Mello.
25 Offerebat quoque Salomon tribus vicibus per annos singulos holocausta et pacificas victimas super altare, quod aedificaverat Domino, et adolebat coram Domino; perfectumque est templum.
26 Classem quoque fecit rex Salomon in Asiongaber, quae est iuxta Ailath in litore maris Rubri in terra Idumaea.
27 Misitque Hiram in classe illa servos suos viros nauticos gnaros maris cum servis Salomonis.
28 Qui, cum venissent in Ophir, sumptum inde aurum quadringentorum viginti talentorum detulerunt ad regem Salomonem.
King James Version
1 And it came to pass, when Solomon had finished the building of the house of the LORD, and the king's house, and all Solomon's desire which he was pleased to do,
2 That the LORD appeared to Solomon the second time, as he had appeared unto him at Gibeon.
3 And the LORD said unto him, I have heard thy prayer and thy supplication, that thou hast made before me: I have hallowed this house, which thou hast built, to put my name there for ever; and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.
4 And if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, in integrity of heart, and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my statutes and my judgments:
5 Then I will establish the throne of thy kingdom upon Israel for ever, as I promised to David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man upon the throne of Israel.
6 But if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your children, and will not keep my commandments and my statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods, and worship them:
7 Then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this house, which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of my sight; and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people:
8 And at this house, which is high, every one that passeth by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss; and they shall say, Why hath the LORD done thus unto this land, and to this house?
9 And they shall answer, Because they forsook the LORD their God, who brought forth their fathers out of the land of Egypt, and have taken hold upon other gods, and have worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath the LORD brought upon them all this evil.
10 ¶ And it came to pass at the end of twenty years, when Solomon had built the two houses, the house of the LORD, and the king's house,
11 (Now Hiram the king of Tyre had furnished Solomon with cedar trees and fir trees, and with gold, according to all his desire,) that then king Solomon gave Hiram twenty cities in the land of Galilee.
12 And Hiram came out from Tyre to see the cities which Solomon had given him; and they pleased him not.
13 And he said, What cities are these which thou hast given me, my brother? And he called them the land of Cabul unto this day.
14 And Hiram sent to the king sixscore talents of gold.
15 ¶ And this is the reason of the levy which king Solomon raised; for to build the house of the LORD, and his own house, and Millo, and the wall of Jerusalem, and Hazor, and Megiddo, and Gezer.
16 For Pharaoh king of Egypt had gone up, and taken Gezer, and burnt it with fire, and slain the Canaanites that dwelt in the city, and given it for a present unto his daughter, Solomon's wife.
17 And Solomon built Gezer, and Beth-horon the nether,
18 And Baalath, and Tadmor in the wilderness, in the land,
19 And all the cities of store that Solomon had, and cities for his chariots, and cities for his horsemen, and that which Solomon desired to build in Jerusalem, and in Lebanon, and in all the land of his dominion.
20 And all the people that were left of the Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites, which were not of the children of Israel,
21 Their children that were left after them in the land, whom the children of Israel also were not able utterly to destroy, upon those did Solomon levy a tribute of bondservice unto this day.
22 But of the children of Israel did Solomon make no bondmen: but they were men of war, and his servants, and his princes, and his captains, and rulers of his chariots, and his horsemen.
23 These were the chief of the officers that were over Solomon's work, five hundred and fifty, which bare rule over the people that wrought in the work.
24 ¶ But Pharaoh's daughter came up out of the city of David unto her house which Solomon had built for her: then did he build Millo.
25 ¶ And three times in a year did Solomon offer burnt offerings and peace offerings upon the altar which he built unto the LORD, and he burnt incense upon the altar that was before the LORD. So he finished the house.
26 ¶ And king Solomon made a navy of ships in Ezion-geber, which is beside Eloth, on the shore of the Red sea, in the land of Edom.
27 And Hiram sent in the navy his servants, shipmen that had knowledge of the sea, with the servants of Solomon.
28 And they came to Ophir, and fetched from thence gold, four hundred and twenty talents, and brought it to king Solomon.
