    8:1 Then Solomon 8010 assembled 6950 8686 the elders 2205 of Israel 3478, and all the heads 7218 of the tribes 4294, the chief 5387 of the fathers 1 of the children 1121 of Israel 3478, unto king 4428 Solomon 8010 in Jerusalem 3389, that they might bring up 5927 8687 the ark 727 of the covenant 1285 of the LORD 3068 out of the city 5892 of David 1732, which [is] Zion 6726.(chief: Heb. princes)

    8:2 And all the men 376 of Israel 3478 assembled 6950 8735 themselves unto king 4428 Solomon 8010 at the feast 2282 in the month 3391 Ethanim 388, which [is] the seventh 7637 month 2320.

    8:3 And all the elders 2205 of Israel 3478 came 935 8799, and the priests 3548 took up 5375 8799 the ark 727.

    8:4 And they brought up 5927 8686 the ark 727 of the LORD 3068, and the tabernacle 168 of the congregation 4150, and all the holy 6944 vessels 3627 that [were] in the tabernacle 168, even those did the priests 3548 and the Levites 3881 bring up 5927 8686.

    8:5 And king 4428 Solomon 8010, and all the congregation 5712 of Israel 3478, that were assembled 3259 8737 unto him, [were] with him before 6440 the ark 727, sacrificing 2076 8764 sheep 6629 and oxen 1241, that could not be told 5608 8735 nor numbered 4487 8735 for multitude 7230.

    8:6 And the priests 3548 brought in 935 8686 the ark 727 of the covenant 1285 of the LORD 3068 unto his place 4725, into the oracle 1687 of the house 1004, to the most 6944 holy 6944 [place, even] under the wings 3671 of the cherubims 3742.

    8:7 For the cherubims 3742 spread forth 6566 8802 [their] two wings 3671 over the place 4725 of the ark 727, and the cherubims 3742 covered 5526 8799 the ark 727 and the staves 905 thereof above 4605.

    8:8 And they drew out 748 8686 the staves 905, that the ends 7218 of the staves 905 were seen out 7200 8735 in the holy 6944 [place] before 6440 the oracle 1687, and they were not seen 7200 8735 without 2351: and there they are unto this day 3117.(ends: Heb. heads)(holy…: or, ark)

    8:9 [There was] nothing in the ark 727 save 7535 the two 8147 tables 3871 of stone 68, which Moses 4872 put 3240 8689 there at Horeb 2722, when the LORD 3068 made 3772 8804 [a covenant] with the children 1121 of Israel 3478, when they came out 3318 8800 of the land 776 of Egypt 4714.(when the: or, where the)

    8:10 And it came to pass, when the priests 3548 were come out 3318 8800 of the holy 6944 [place], that the cloud 6051 filled 4390 8804 the house 1004 of the LORD 3068,

    8:11 So that the priests 3548 could 3201 8804 not stand 5975 8800 to minister 8334 8763 because 6440 of the cloud 6051: for the glory 3519 of the LORD 3068 had filled 4390 8804 the house 1004 of the LORD 3068.

    8:12 Then spake 559 8804 Solomon 8010, The LORD 3068 said 559 8804 that he would dwell 7931 8800 in the thick darkness 6205.

    8:13 I have surely 1129 8800 built 1129 8804 thee an house 1004 to dwell in 2073, a settled place 4349 for thee to abide in 3427 8800 for ever 5769.

    8:14 And the king 4428 turned 5437 0 his face 6440 about 5437 8686, and blessed 1288 8762 all the congregation 6951 of Israel 3478: (and all the congregation 6951 of Israel 3478 stood 5975 8802;)

    8:15 And he said 559 8799, Blessed 1288 8803 [be] the LORD 3068 God 430 of Israel 3478, which spake 1696 8765 with his mouth 6310 unto David 1732 my father 1, and hath with his hand 3027 fulfilled 4390 8765 [it], saying 559 8800,

    8:16 Since the day 3117 that I brought forth 3318 8689 my people 5971 Israel 3478 out of Egypt 4714, I chose 977 8804 no city 5892 out of all the tribes 7626 of Israel 3478 to build 1129 8800 an house 1004, that my name 8034 might be therein; but I chose 977 8799 David 1732 to be over my people 5971 Israel 3478.

    8:17 And it was in the heart 3824 of David 1732 my father 1 to build 1129 8800 an house 1004 for the name 8034 of the LORD 3068 God 430 of Israel 3478.

    8:18 And the LORD 3068 said 559 8799 unto David 1732 my father 1, Whereas 3282 834 it was in thine heart 3824 to build 1129 8800 an house 1004 unto my name 8034, thou didst well 2895 8689 that it was in thine heart 3824.

    8:19 Nevertheless 7535 thou shalt not build 1129 8799 the house 1004; but thy son 1121 that shall come forth out 3318 8802 of thy loins 2504, he shall build 1129 8799 the house 1004 unto my name 8034.

    8:20 And the LORD 3068 hath performed 6965 8686 his word 1697 that he spake 1696 8765, and I am risen up 6965 8799 in the room of David 1732 my father 1, and sit 3427 8799 on the throne 3678 of Israel 3478, as the LORD 3068 promised 1696 8765, and have built 1129 8799 an house 1004 for the name 8034 of the LORD 3068 God 430 of Israel 3478.

    8:21 And I have set 7760 8799 there a place 4725 for the ark 727, wherein [is] the covenant 1285 of the LORD 3068, which he made 3772 8804 with our fathers 1, when he brought them out 3318 8687 of the land 776 of Egypt 4714.

    8:22 And Solomon 8010 stood 5975 8799 before 6440 the altar 4196 of the LORD 3068 in the presence of 5048 all the congregation 6951 of Israel 3478, and spread forth 6566 8799 his hands 3709 toward heaven 8064:

    8:23 And he said 559 8799, LORD 3068 God 430 of Israel 3478, [there is] no God 430 like thee, in heaven 8064 above 4605, or on earth 776 beneath, who keepest 8104 8802 covenant 1285 and mercy 2617 with thy servants 5650 that walk 1980 8802 before 6440 thee with all their heart 3820:

    8:24 Who hast kept 8104 8804 with thy servant 5650 David 1732 my father 1 that thou promisedst 1696 8765 him: thou spakest 1696 8762 also with thy mouth 6310, and hast fulfilled 4390 8765 [it] with thine hand 3027, as [it is] this day 3117.

    8:25 Therefore now, LORD 3068 God 430 of Israel 3478, keep 8104 8798 with thy servant 5650 David 1732 my father 1 that thou promisedst 1696 8765 him, saying 559 8800, There shall not fail 3772 8735 thee a man 376 in my sight 6440 to sit 3427 8802 on the throne 3678 of Israel 3478; so 7535 that thy children 1121 take heed 8104 8799 to their way 1870, that they walk 3212 8800 before 6440 me as thou hast walked 1980 8804 before 6440 me.(fail…: Heb. be cut off unto thee a man from my sight)(so that: Heb. only if)

    8:26 And now, O God 430 of Israel 3478, let thy word 1697, I pray thee, be verified 539 8735, which thou spakest 1696 8765 unto thy servant 5650 David 1732 my father 1.

    8:27 But will God 430 indeed 552 dwell 3427 8799 on the earth 776? behold, the heaven 8064 and heaven 8064 of heavens 8064 cannot contain 3557 8770 thee; how much less 637 this house 1004 that I have builded 1129 8804?

    8:28 Yet have thou respect 6437 8804 unto the prayer 8605 of thy servant 5650, and to his supplication 8467, O LORD 3068 my God 430, to hearken 8085 8800 unto the cry 7440 and to the prayer 8605, which thy servant 5650 prayeth 6419 8693 before 6440 thee to day 3117:

    8:29 That thine eyes 5869 may be open 6605 8803 toward this house 1004 night 3915 and day 3117, [even] toward the place 4725 of which thou hast said 559 8804, My name 8034 shall be there: that thou mayest hearken 8085 8800 unto the prayer 8605 which thy servant 5650 shall make 6419 8691 toward this place 4725.(toward this place: or, in this place)

    8:30 And hearken 8085 8804 thou to the supplication 8467 of thy servant 5650, and of thy people 5971 Israel 3478, when they shall pray 6419 8691 toward this place 4725: and hear 8085 8799 thou in heaven 8064 thy dwelling 3427 8800 place 4725: and when thou hearest 8085 8804, forgive 5545 8804.(toward this place: or, in this place)

    8:31 If any man 376 trespass 2398 8799 against his neighbour 7453, and an oath 423 be laid 5375 8804 upon him to cause him to swear 422 8687, and the oath 423 come 935 8804 before 6440 thine altar 4196 in this house 1004:(and an oath…: Heb. and he require an oath of him)

    8:32 Then hear 8085 8799 thou in heaven 8064, and do 6213 8804, and judge 8199 8804 thy servants 5650, condemning 7561 8687 the wicked 7563, to bring 5414 8800 his way 1870 upon his head 7218; and justifying 6663 8687 the righteous 6662, to give 5414 8800 him according to his righteousness 6666.

    8:33 When thy people 5971 Israel 3478 be smitten down 5062 8736 before 6440 the enemy 341 8802, because they have sinned 2398 8799 against thee, and shall turn again 7725 8804 to thee, and confess 3034 8689 thy name 8034, and pray 6419 8694, and make supplication 2603 8694 unto thee in this house 1004:(in: or, toward)

    8:34 Then hear 8085 8799 thou in heaven 8064, and forgive 5545 8804 the sin 2403 of thy people 5971 Israel 3478, and bring them again 7725 8689 unto the land 127 which thou gavest 5414 8804 unto their fathers 1.

    8:35 When heaven 8064 is shut up 6113 8736, and there is no rain 4306, because they have sinned 2398 8799 against thee; if they pray 6419 8694 toward this place 4725, and confess 3034 8689 thy name 8034, and turn 7725 8799 from their sin 2403, when thou afflictest 6031 8686 them:

    8:36 Then hear 8085 8799 thou in heaven 8064, and forgive 5545 8804 the sin 2403 of thy servants 5650, and of thy people 5971 Israel 3478, that thou teach 3384 8686 them the good 2896 way 1870 wherein they should walk 3212 8799, and give 5414 8804 rain 4306 upon thy land 776, which thou hast given 5414 8804 to thy people 5971 for an inheritance 5159.

    8:37 If there be in the land 776 famine 7458, if there be pestilence 1698, blasting 7711, mildew 3420, locust 697, [or] if there be caterpiller 2625; if their enemy 341 8802 besiege 6887 8686 them in the land 776 of their cities 8179; whatsoever plague 5061, whatsoever sickness 4245 [there be];(cities: or, jurisdiction)

    8:38 What prayer 8605 and supplication 8467 soever be [made] by any man 120, [or] by all thy people 5971 Israel 3478, which shall know 3045 8799 every man 376 the plague 5061 of his own heart 3824, and spread forth 6566 8804 his hands 3709 toward this house 1004:

    8:39 Then hear 8085 8799 thou in heaven 8064 thy dwelling 3427 8800 place 4349, and forgive 5545 8804, and do 6213 8804, and give 5414 8804 to every man 376 according to his ways 1870, whose heart 3824 thou knowest 3045 8799; (for thou, [even] thou only, knowest 3045 8804 the hearts 3824 of all the children 1121 of men 120;)

    8:40 That they may fear 3372 8799 thee all the days 3117 that they live 2416 in 6440 the land 127 which thou gavest 5414 8804 unto our fathers 1.

    8:41 Moreover concerning a stranger 5237, that [is] not of thy people 5971 Israel 3478, but cometh out 935 8804 of a far 7350 country 776 for 4616 thy name's 8034 sake;

    8:42 (For they shall hear 8085 8799 of thy great 1419 name 8034, and of thy strong 2389 hand 3027, and of thy stretched out 5186 8803 arm 2220;) when he shall come 935 8804 and pray 6419 8694 toward this house 1004;

    8:43 Hear 8085 8799 thou in heaven 8064 thy dwelling 3427 8800 place 4349, and do 6213 8804 according to all that the stranger 5237 calleth 7121 8799 to thee for: that all people 5971 of the earth 776 may know 3045 8799 thy name 8034, to fear 3372 8800 thee, as [do] thy people 5971 Israel 3478; and that they may know 3045 8800 that this house 1004, which I have builded 1129 8804, is called 7121 8738 by thy name 8034.(this…: Heb. thy name is called upon this house)

    8:44 If thy people 5971 go out 3318 8799 to battle 4421 against their enemy 341 8802, whithersoever 1870 thou shalt send 7971 8799 them, and shall pray 6419 8694 unto the LORD 3068 toward 1870 the city 5892 which thou hast chosen 977 8804, and [toward] the house 1004 that I have built 1129 8804 for thy name 8034:(toward the city: Heb. the way of the city)

    8:45 Then hear 8085 8804 thou in heaven 8064 their prayer 8605 and their supplication 8467, and maintain 6213 8804 their cause 4941.(cause: or, right)

    8:46 If they sin 2398 8799 against thee, (for [there is] no man 120 that sinneth 2398 8799 not,) and thou be angry 599 8804 with them, and deliver 5414 8804 them to the enemy 341 8802, so that they carry them away 7617 8804 captives 7617 8802 unto 6440 the land 776 of the enemy 341 8802, far 7350 or near 7138;

    8:47 [Yet] if they shall bethink 7725 8689 themselves in the land 776 whither they were carried captives 7617 8738, and repent 7725 8804 3820, and make supplication 2603 8694 unto thee in the land 776 of them that carried them captives 7617 8802, saying 559 8800, We have sinned 2398 8804, and have done perversely 5753 8689, we have committed wickedness 7561 8804;(bethink…: Heb. bring back to their heart)

    8:48 And [so] return 7725 8804 unto thee with all their heart 3824, and with all their soul 5315, in the land 776 of their enemies 341 8802, which led them away captive 7617 8804, and pray 6419 8694 unto thee toward 1870 their land 776, which thou gavest 5414 8804 unto their fathers 1, the city 5892 which thou hast chosen 977 8804, and the house 1004 which I have built 1129 8804 for thy name 8034:

    8:49 Then hear 8085 8804 thou their prayer 8605 and their supplication 8467 in heaven 8064 thy dwelling 3427 8800 place 4349, and maintain 6213 8804 their cause 4941,(cause: or, right)

    8:50 And forgive 5545 8804 thy people 5971 that have sinned 2398 8804 against thee, and all their transgressions 6588 wherein they have transgressed 6586 8804 against thee, and give 5414 8804 them compassion 7356 before 6440 them who carried them captive 7617 8802, that they may have compassion 7355 8765 on them:

    8:51 For they [be] thy people 5971, and thine inheritance 5159, which thou broughtest forth 3318 8689 out of Egypt 4714, from the midst 8432 of the furnace 3564 of iron 1270:

    8:52 That thine eyes 5869 may be open 6605 8803 unto the supplication 8467 of thy servant 5650, and unto the supplication 8467 of thy people 5971 Israel 3478, to hearken 8085 8800 unto them in all that they call 7121 8800 for unto thee.

    8:53 For thou didst separate 914 8689 them from among all the people 5971 of the earth 776, [to be] thine inheritance 5159, as thou spakest 1696 8765 by the hand 3027 of Moses 4872 thy servant 5650, when thou broughtest 3318 8687 our fathers 1 out of Egypt 4714, O Lord 136 GOD 3069.

    8:54 And it was [so], that when Solomon 8010 had made an end 3615 8763 of praying 6419 8692 all this prayer 8605 and supplication 8467 unto the LORD 3068, he arose 6965 8804 from before 6440 the altar 4196 of the LORD 3068, from kneeling 3766 8800 on his knees 1290 with his hands 3709 spread up 6566 8803 to heaven 8064.

    8:55 And he stood 5975 8799, and blessed 1288 8762 all the congregation 6951 of Israel 3478 with a loud 1419 voice 6963, saying 559 8800,

    8:56 Blessed 1288 8803 [be] the LORD 3068, that hath given 5414 8804 rest 4496 unto his people 5971 Israel 3478, according to all that he promised 1696 8765: there hath not failed 5307 8804 one 259 word 1697 of all his good 2896 promise 1697, which he promised 1696 8765 by the hand 3027 of Moses 4872 his servant 5650.(failed: Heb. fallen)

    8:57 The LORD 3068 our God 430 be with us, as he was with our fathers 1: let him not leave 5800 8799 us, nor forsake 5203 8799 us:

    8:58 That he may incline 5186 8687 our hearts 3824 unto him, to walk 3212 8800 in all his ways 1870, and to keep 8104 8800 his commandments 4687, and his statutes 2706, and his judgments 4941, which he commanded 6680 8765 our fathers 1.

    8:59 And let these my words 1697, wherewith I have made supplication 2603 8694 before 6440 the LORD 3068, be nigh 7138 unto the LORD 3068 our God 430 day 3119 and night 3915, that he maintain 6213 8800 the cause 4941 of his servant 5650, and the cause 4941 of his people 5971 Israel 3478 at all times 3117 3117, as the matter 1697 shall require:(at all…: Heb. the thing of a day in his day)

    8:60 That all the people 5971 of the earth 776 may know 3045 8800 that the LORD 3068 [is] God 430, [and that there is] none else.

    8:61 Let your heart 3824 therefore be perfect 8003 with the LORD 3068 our God 430, to walk 3212 8800 in his statutes 2706, and to keep 8104 8800 his commandments 4687, as at this day 3117.

    8:62 And the king 4428, and all Israel 3478 with him, offered 2076 8802 sacrifice 2077 before 6440 the LORD 3068.

    8:63 And Solomon 8010 offered 2076 8799 a sacrifice 2077 of peace offerings 8002, which he offered 2076 8804 unto the LORD 3068, two 8147 and twenty 6242 thousand 505 oxen 1241, and an hundred 3967 and twenty 6242 thousand 505 sheep 6629. So the king 4428 and all the children 1121 of Israel 3478 dedicated 2596 8799 the house 1004 of the LORD 3068.

    8:64 The same day 3117 did the king 4428 hallow 6942 8765 the middle 8432 of the court 2691 that [was] before 6440 the house 1004 of the LORD 3068: for there he offered 6213 8804 burnt offerings 5930, and meat offerings 4503, and the fat 2459 of the peace offerings 8002: because the brasen 5178 altar 4196 that [was] before 6440 the LORD 3068 [was] too little 6996 to receive 3557 8687 the burnt offerings 5930, and meat offerings 4503, and the fat 2459 of the peace offerings 8002.

    8:65 And at that time 6256 Solomon 8010 held 6213 8799 a feast 2282, and all Israel 3478 with him, a great 1419 congregation 6951, from the entering 935 8800 in of Hamath 2574 unto the river 5158 of Egypt 4714, before 6440 the LORD 3068 our God 430, seven 7651 days 3117 and seven 7651 days 3117, [even] fourteen 702 6240 days 3117.

    8:66 On the eighth 8066 day 3117 he sent 7971 0 the people 5971 away 7971 8765: and they blessed 1288 8762 the king 4428, and went 3212 8799 unto their tents 168 joyful 8056 and glad 2896 of heart 3820 for all the goodness 2896 that the LORD 3068 had done 6213 8804 for David 1732 his servant 5650, and for Israel 3478 his people 5971.(blessed: or, thanked)
