1 Sicque completum est omne opus, quod fecit Salomon in do mo Domini. Intulit igitur Salomon omnia, quae voverat David pater suus, argentum et aurum, et universa vasa posuit in thesauris domus Dei.
2 Post quae congregavit maiores natu Israel et cunctos principes tribuum et capita familiarum de filiis Israel in Ierusalem, ut adducerent arcam foederis Domini de civitate David, quae est Sion.
3 Venerunt igitur ad regem omnes viri Israel in die sollemni mensis septimi.
4 Cumque venissent cuncti seniorum Israel, portaverunt Levitae arcam
5 et intulerunt eam et tabernaculum conventus et omnem paraturam tabernaculi. Porro omnia vasa sanctuarii, quae erant in tabernaculo, portaverunt sacerdotes levitici generis.
6 Rex autem Salomon et universus coetus Israel, omnes, qui fuerunt congregati ad eum ante arcam, immolabant oves et boves absque ullo numero: tanta enim erat multitudo victimarum.
7 Et intulerunt sacerdotes arcam foederis Domini in locum suum ad Dabir templi, in sancta sanctorum subter alas cherubim,
8 ita ut cherubim expanderent alas suas super locum, in quo posita erat arca, et ipsam arcam tegerent cum vectibus suis ab alto.
9 Vectium autem, quibus portabatur arca, quia paululum longiores erant, capita parebant ante Dabir; si vero quis erat extrinsecus eos videre non poterat. Fuit itaque arca ibi usque in praesentem diem.
10 Nihilque erat aliud in arca, nisi duae tabulae, quas posuerat Moyses in Horeb, quando fecit Dominus foedus cum filiis Israel egredientibus ex Aegypto.
11 Egressis autem sacerdotibus de sanctuario - omnes enim sacerdotes, qui ibi potuerant inveniri, sanctificati sunt, non observantes vices et ministeriorum ordinem,
12 et Levitae cantores, omnes, qui sub Asaph erant et qui sub Heman et qui sub Idithun, filii et fratres eorum, vestiti byssinis, cymbalis et psalteriis et citharis stabant ad orientalem plagam altaris, et cum eis sacerdotes centum viginti canentes tubis -
13 igitur cunctis pariter et tubis et voce et cymbalis et organis et diversi generis musicorum concinentibus et vocem in sublime tollentibus, cum una voce Dominum laudare coepissent et dicere: "Confitemini Domino quoniam bonus, quoniam in aeternum misericordia eius", impleta est domus Dei nube,
14 nec potuerunt sacerdotes stare et ministrare propter nubem; compleverat enim gloria Domini domum Dei.
King James Version
1 Thus all the work that Solomon made for the house of the LORD was finished: and Solomon brought in all the things that David his father had dedicated; and the silver, and the gold, and all the instruments, put he among the treasures of the house of God.
2 ¶ Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel, and all the heads of the tribes, the chief of the fathers of the children of Israel, unto Jerusalem, to bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD out of the city of David, which is Zion.
3 Wherefore all the men of Israel assembled themselves unto the king in the feast which was in the seventh month.
4 And all the elders of Israel came; and the Levites took up the ark.
5 And they brought up the ark, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and all the holy vessels that were in the tabernacle, these did the priests and the Levites bring up.
6 Also king Solomon, and all the congregation of Israel that were assembled unto him before the ark, sacrificed sheep and oxen, which could not be told nor numbered for multitude.
7 And the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the LORD unto his place, to the oracle of the house, into the most holy place, even under the wings of the cherubims:
8 For the cherubims spread forth their wings over the place of the ark, and the cherubims covered the ark and the staves thereof above.
9 And they drew out the staves of the ark, that the ends of the staves were seen from the ark before the oracle; but they were not seen without. And there it is unto this day.
10 There was nothing in the ark save the two tables which Moses put therein at Horeb, when the LORD made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they came out of Egypt.
11 ¶ And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place: (for all the priests that were present were sanctified, and did not then wait by course:
12 Also the Levites which were the singers, all of them of Asaph, of Heman, of Jeduthun, with their sons and their brethren, being arrayed in white linen, having cymbals and psalteries and harps, stood at the east end of the altar, and with them an hundred and twenty priests sounding with trumpets:)
13 It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD;
14 So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of God.
