And Zadok the priest will take a horn of oil from the tent and will anoint Solomon; and they will strike upon the trumpet, and all the people will say, King Solomon shall live. And all the people will go up after him, and the people piping with pipes and rejoicing with great joy, and the earth will break forth with their voice. And Adonijah will hear, and all being called with him, and they finished eating. And Joab will hear the voice of the trumpet, and say, Wherefore the voice of the city put in motion? read more.
He yet speaking, and behold, Jonathan son of Abiathar the priest came in; and Adonijah will say, Come in, for thou a man of strength, and thou wilt announce good news. And Jonathan will answer and say to Adonijah, Truly our lord king David made Solomon king. And the king will send with him Zadok the priest, and Nathan the prophet, and Benaiah son of Jehoida, and the Cherethites and the Pelethites, and they will cause him to ride upon the kings mule: And Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet will anoint him for king in Gihon: and they will go up from thence rejoicing, and the city will be put in motion: this the voice which ye heard. And also Solomon will sit upon the throne of the kingdom. And also the king's servants came to bless our lord king David, saying. Thy God will do good to the name of Solomon above thy name, and he will magnify his throne above thy throne. And the king will worship upon the bed. And also thus will the king say, Blessed Jehovah the God of Israel who gave this day him sitting upon my throne, and mine eyes seeing. And all the called that were to Adonijah will tremble, and will rise and go, a man to his way. And Adonijah will, be afraid of the face of Solomon, and he will rise and go, and lay hold upon the horns of the altar. And it will be announced to Solomon, saving, Behold, Adonijah was afraid of king Solomon, and behold, he seized upon the horns of the altar, saying, Will king Solomon swear to me according to the day if he will kill his servant with the sword? And Solomon will say, If he will be for a son of strength there shall not fall of his hairs to the earth: and if evil shall be found in him and he shall die. And king Solomon will send and they will bring him down from the altar. And he will come and worship to king Solomon: and Solomon will say to him, Go to thy house. And the days of David will draw near to die; and he will command Solomon his son, saying, I go in the way of all the earth: and be thou strong, and be for a man; And watch the watches of Jehovah thy God, to go in his ways, to watch his laws, his commands and his judgments, and his testimonies, as written in the law of Moses, so that thou shalt consider all that thou shalt do and all Where thou shalt turn there: So that Jehovah shall raise up his word which he spake concerning me, saying, If thy sons shall watch their way to go before me in truth, with all their heart, and with all their soul, saying, There shall not be cut off to thee a man from the throne of Israel. And also thou knewest what Joab on of Zeruiah did to me, what he did to the two chiefs of the armies of Israel, to Abner son of Ner, and to Amasa son of Jether; and he will kill them and put the bloods of war in peace, and give the bloods of war upon his girdle which was upon his loins, and in his shoe upon his feet And do according to thy wisdom, and thou wilt not bring down his gray hairs in peace to hades And to the sons of Barzillai the Gileadite thou shalt do mercy, and they shall be of those eating at thy table: for so they came near to me in my fleeing from the face of Absalom thy brother. And behold, with thee Shimei, son of Gera, a Benjamite, of Bahurim; and he cursed me a strong curse in the day I went to the two camps and he came down to my meeting at Jordan, and I will swear to him by Jehovah, saying, If I shall kill thee with the sword. And now thou shalt not let him go unpunished; for thou a wise man, and thou knowest what thou wilt do to him; and bring down his gray hairs with blood to hades And David will lie down with his fathers, and be buried in the city of David. And the days that David reigned over Israel, forty years: in Hebron he reigned seven years, and in Jerusalem he reigned thirty and three years. And Solomon will sit upon the throne of David his father; and his kingdom will be protected greatly. And Adonijah son of Haggith, will come to Bath-sheba, Solomon's mother: and she will say, Thy coming peace? And he will say, Peace. And he will say, A word to me for thee. And she will say, Speak. And he will say, Thou knewest that to me was the kingdom, and upon me all Israel set their faces for king: and the kingdom will turn about and be for my brother, for from Jehovah it was to him. And now I ask one asking from thee, thou wilt not turn away my face. And she will say to him, Speak And he will say, Speak now to Solomon the king, for he will not turn away thy face, and he will give to me Abishag the Shunamite for wife. And Bathsheba will say, Well I will speak for thee to the king. And Bathsheba will go to king Solomon to speak to him for Adonijah. And the king will rise up to her meeting, and worship to her, and he sat upon his throne, and a throne will be set for the king's mother; and she will sit at his right hand. And she will say, One small asking I ask from thee; thou wilt not turn away my face. And the king will say to her, Ask, my mother, for I will not turn away thy face. And she will say, Give Abishag the Shunamite to Adonijah thy brother for wife. And king Solomon will answer, and say to his mother, And wherefore didst thou ask Abishag the Shunamite for Adonijah? And ask for him the kingdom, for he my brother, the great above me; and for him Abiathar the priest., and Joab son of Zeruiah. And king Solomon will swear by Jehovah, saying, Thus will God do to me, and thus will he add, for Adonijah spoke this word against his soul. And now Jehovah lives who prepared me, and he will set me upon the throne of David my father, and who made for me a house as he spake, for this day Adonijah shall die. And king Solomon will send by the hand of Benaiah, son of Jehoida, and he will strike upon him and he will die. And to Abiathar the priest the king said, Go to Anathoth upon thy field: for thou a man of death: and in this day will not kill thee, for thou didst lift up the ark of the Lord Jehovah before David my father, and because thou wert afflicted in all which my father was afflicted. And Solomon will drive out Abiathar from being priest to Jehovah, to complete the word of Jehovah which he spake concerning the house of Eli in Shiloh. And the report came even to Joab: (for Joab turned after Adonijah, and after Absalom he turned not;) and Joab will flee to the tent of Jehovah and will lay hold upon the horns of the altar. And it will be announced to king Solomon that Joab fled to the tent of Jehovah; and behold, by the altar. And Solomon will send Benaiah son of Jehoida, saying, Go strike upon him. And Benaiah will go to the tent of Jehovah, and say to him, Thus said the king, Come forth. And he will say, Nay; for here will I die. And Benaiah will turn back the king word, saying, Thus said Joab, and thus he answered me. And the king will say to him, Do as he said, and strike upon him, and bury him; and take away the bloods which Joab shed gratuitously, from me and from my father's house. And Jehovah turned back his blood upon his head, who struck upon two just men and good above him, and he will kill them with the sword, and my father David knew not, Abner son of Ner, chief of the army of Israel, and Amasa, son of Jether, chief of the army of Judah. And their bloods shall turn back upon the head of Joab and upon the head of his seed forever: and to David and to his seed and to his house and to his throne shall be peace even forever, from Jehovah. And Benaiah son of Jehoida will go up, and will strike upon him and will kill him: and he will be buried in his house in the desert And the king will give Benaiah son of Jehoida instead of him over the army: and Zadok the priest, the king gave instead of Abiathar. And the king will send and call for Shimei, and say to him, Build for thee a house in Jerusalem, and dwell there, and thou shalt not go forth from thence, whither and whither. For being in the day of thy going forth, and thou didst pass the torrent Kidron, knowing, thou shalt know that dying, thou shalt die: thy blood shall be upon thy head. And Shimei will say, Good the word: according to what my lord the king spake, thus will thy servant do. And Shimei dwelt in Jerusalem many days. And it will be from the end of three years, and two servants to Shimei, will flee to Achish, son of Maachah, king of Gath: and they will announce to Shimci, saying, Behold, thy servants in Gath. And Shimei will rise and saddle his ass, and go to Gath to Achish to seek his servants: and Shimei will go and bring his servants from Gath. And it will be announced to Solomon that Shimei went from Jerusalem to Gath, and he will turn back And the king will send and call for Shimei, and say to him, Did not I cause thee to swear by Jehovah, and attest to thee, saying, In the day of thy going forth, and thou wentest whither and whither, knowing, thou shalt know that dying, thou shalt die? and thou wilt say to me, Good the word I heard. And wherefore didst thou not watch the oath of Jehovah, and the command which I commanded upon thee? And the king will say to Shimei, Thou knewest all the evil which thy heart knew, which thou didst to David my father: and Jehovah turned back thy evil upon thy head. And blessed be kind Solomon, and the throne of David shall be prepared before Jehovah, even forever. And the king will command Benaiah son of Jehoida, and he will go forth and will strike upon him, and he will die. And the kingdom was prepared in the hand of Solomon. And Solomon will contract marriage with Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he will take Pharaoh's daughter and bring her to the city of David till he finished building his house, and the house of Jehovah and the wall of Jerusalem round about Only the people sacrificing in heights, for there was not a house, built to the name of Jehovah even to these days. And Solomon will love Jehovah, going in the laws of David. his father: only he was sacrificing and burning incense upon the heights. And the king will go to the hill to sacrifice there; for it was the great height: a thousand burnt-offerings will Solomon bring up upon that altar. In the hill Jehovah was seen to Solomon in a dream at night: and God will say, Ask what I shall give to thee. And Solomon will say, Thou didst with thy servant David, my father, great mercy, according as he went before thee in the truth and in justice and in uprightness of heart with thee; and thou wilt watch for him this great mercy, and thou wilt give to him a son sitting upon his throne as this day. And now, Jehovah my God, thou madest thy servant king instead of David my father and I a little boy, shall not know to go out and come in. And thy servant in the midst of thy people which thou didst choose, many people which shall not be numbered and counted for multitude. And give to thy servant a heart to hear to judge thy people to discern between good to evil: for who shall be able to judge this thy weighty people? And the word will be good in the eyes of God that Solomon asked this word. And God will say to him, Because thou didst ask this word, and didst not ask for thyself many days; and didst not ask for thyself riches, and didst not ask the soul of thine enemies: and didst ask for thyself to have understanding to hear judgment; Behold, I did according to thy word, I gave to thee a wise and understanding heart; that there was not as thou before thee, and after thee there shall not arise like thee. And also that thou askedst not I gave to thee, also riches, also honor, that there was not a man like thee among kings all thy days. And if thou wilt go in my way to watch my law and my commands, as David thy father went, I prolonged thy days. And Solomon will awake; and behold, a dream. And he will go to Jerusalem and stand before the ark of the covenant of Jehovah, and bring up burnt-offerings, and he will do peace, and make a drinking to all his servants. Then will come two women, harlots, to the king, and they will stand before him. And the one woman will say, With leave, my lord, I and this woman are dwelling in one house; and I shall bring forth with her in the house. And it will be in the third day after I brought forth, and also this woman will bring forth: and we together, and no stranger with us in the house besides we two in the house. And the son of this woman will die in the night when she lay upon him. And she will rise in the middle of the night and take my son from beside me, and thy servant sleeping; and she will lay him in her bosom and her dead son she laid in my bosom. And I shall rise in the morning to suckle my son, and behold, he was dead: and I shall attend to him in the morning, and behold, it was not my son that I brought forth. And the other woman will say, Nay; for my son the living, and thy son the dead. And this said, No; for thy son the dead, and my son the living. And they spake before the king. And the king will say, This says, My son the living, and thy son the dead; and this says, Nay; for thy son the dead, and my son the living. And the king will say, Take to me a sword. And they will bring the sword before the king. And the king will say, Divide the living child in two, and ye shall give the half to the one, and the half to the other. And the woman to whom the living son, will say to the king, for her bowels were warm upon her son, and she will say, With leave, my lord, ye shall give to her the living child, and slaying, ye shall not slay him. And this said, It shall not be even to me, even to thee; divide it And the king will answer and say, Ye shall give to her the living child, and slaying, ye shall not slay it: she is his mother. And all Israel will hear the judgment which the king judged, and they will be afraid of the face of the king, for they saw that the wisdom of Jehovah was in the midst of him to do judgment And Solomon will be reigning, king over all Israel. And these the chiefs which were to him: Azariah, son of Zadok the priest; Elihoreph and Ahiah, sons of Shisha, scribes; Jehoshaphat son of Ahilud, remembering. And Benaiah, son of Jehoida, over the army: and Zadok and Abiathar, priests: And Azariah son of Nathan, over the stations: and Zabud, son of Nathan the priest, the king's friend: And Ahishar over the house: and Adoniram son of Abda over the tribute. And to Solomon, twelve, set over all Israel, and they furnished the king and his house: a month in the year will be for one to furnish. And these their names: the son of Hur in mount Ephraim: The son of Dekar, in Makaz, and in Shaalbim, and the House of the Sun, and the oak of the House of Mercy.: The son of Hesed in Araboth; to him Sochoh, and all the land of Hepher: The son of Abinadab, all the height of Dor: Taphath the daughter of Solomon was to him for wife. Baana son of Ahilud; Taanach and Megiddo, and all the House of Rest, which is by Zartanah from beneath Jezreel, from the House of Rest even to the Meadow of Dancing, even to the other side of Jokneam. The son of Geber in Ramoth-Gilead; to him Havoth-Jair son of Manasseh, which was in Gilead; to him a portion of Ergab which is in Bashan, sixty great cities, with a wall and bars of brass.

Judah and Israel many as the sand which is by the sea for multitude, eating and drinking and rejoicing. And Solomon was ruling over all kingdoms from the river to the land of the rovers, and even to the bound of Egypt: they were bringing a gift and serving Solomon all the days of his life. And the bread of Solomon for one day will be thirty cors of fine flour, and sixty cors of meal, Ten fatted oxen, and twenty oxen of the shepherd, and a hundred sheep, besides from the stag and the roe and the fallow deer, and fowls fattened. For he ruled over all beyond the river, from Tiphsah and even to Azzah, over all the kings beyond the river: and there was peace to him from all his servants from round about And Judah dwelt, and Israel, with confidence, a man under his vine and under his fig tree, from Dan and even to the Well of the Oath, all the days of Solomon. And there will be to Solomon forty thousand stalls of horses for his chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen. And these being set, furnished king Solomon, and all coming near king Solomon's table, each his month: a word will not be wanting. And the barley and the straw for horses, and for coursers, they will bring to the place where a man will be there according to his judgment And God will give wisdom to Solomon, and understanding exceeding much, and breadth of heart as the sand which is upon the lip of the sea. And the wisdom of Solomon will be multiplied above the wisdom of all the sons of the east, and above all the wisdom of Egypt And he will be wise above all men; above Ethan the Ezrahite, and Heman and Chalcol and Darda, sons of Mahol: and his name will be in all the nations round about And he will speak three thousand parables: and his songs will be five and a thousand. And he will speak concerning the woods, from the cedar which is in Lebanon, even to the hyssop which went forth on the wall: and he will speak upon the cattle, and upon the birds, and upon the creeping things, and upon the fishes. And there will come from all peoples to hear the wisdom of Solomon, from all the kings of the earth who heard his wisdom. And Hiram king of Tyre will send his servants to Solomon for he heard that they anointed him for king instead of his father: for Hiram was loving to David all the days. And Solomon will send to Hiram, saying, Thou knewest David my father, that he was not able to build a house for the name of Jehovah his God from the face of wars which surrounded him, until Jehovah will give them under the soles of his feet And now Jehovah my God caused rest to me from round about; not an adversary and not an evil event And behold me saying to build a house for the name of Jehovah my God, as Jehovah spake to David my father, saying, Thy son which I will give upon thy throne instead of thee, he shall build the house to my name. And now command and they shall cut for me cedars from Lebanon; and my servants shall be with thy servants: and the hire of thy servants will I give to thee according to all which thou shalt say: for thou knewest that not among us a man knowing to cut wood as the Sidonians. And it will be when Hiram heard the words of Solomon, and he will rejoice greatly, and say, Blessed Jehovah this day who gave to David a wise son over this great people. And Hiram will send to Solomon, saying, I heard what thou sentest to me: I will do all thy pleasure in woods of cedars and in woods of cypress. My servants shall bring from Lebanon to the sea, and I will put them on rafts upon the sea, even to the place where thou wilt send to me; and I dispersed them there, and thou shalt lift up and thou shalt do my pleasure to give bread to my house. And Hiram will be giving to Solomon woods of cedar and woods of cypress, all his desire. And Solomon gave to Hiram twenty thousand cons of wheat food for his house, and twenty cors of beaten oil: thus Solomon will give to Hiram year by year. And Jehovah gave wisdom to Solomon, as he spake to him: and peace will be between Hiram and between Solomon; and they two will cut out a covenant And king Solomon will bring up a tribute from all Israel; and the tribute will be thirty thousand men. And he will send them to Lebanon, ten thousand by the month; being changed, a month they shall be in Lebanon and two months in his house. And Adoniram over the tribute. And there will be to Solomon seventy thousand lifting up a burden, and eighty thousand hewing in the mountain. Besides from the chiefs set to Solomon which were over the work, three thousand and three hundred ruling over the people doing in the work. The king will command and they will remove great stones, precious stones; to set the house, cut stones. And Solomon's builders and Hiram's builders, and those setting, will cut: and they will prepare the woods and stones to build the house. And it will be in the eightieth year and four hundredth year after the going out of the sons of Israel from the land of Egypt, in the fourth year, in the month of brightness, it the second month to king Solomon over Israel, and he will build the house to Jehovah. And the house which king Solomon built to Jehovah, sixty cubits its length, and twenty its breadth, and thirty cubits its height And the porch upon the face of the temple of the house, twenty cubits its length, upon the face of the breadth of the house; ten by the cubit its breadth upon the face of the house. And he will make for the house windows of closed bars. And he will build upon the wall of the house a floor round about the walls of the house round about for the temple, for the oracle: and he will make ribs round about The floor the lower part, five by the cubit its breadth, and the middle, six by the cubit its breadth, and the third, seven by the cubit its breadth: for he gave offsets to the house round about without, so that it laid not hold upon the walls of the house. And the house in its building was built of stone completed from the quarry: and hammers and the axe, every instrument of iron was not heard in the house in its building. The door of the middle rib to the right shoulder of the house: and they will go up with windings upon the middle, and from the middle to the third. And he will build the house, and he will finish it; and cover the house with arches and rows with cedars. He will build the floor upon all the house, five cubits its height: and it will hold to the house with woods of cedars. And the word of Jehovah will be to Solomon, saying, This house which thou didst build, if thou shalt go in my laws, and my judgment thou wilt do, and watch all my commands to go in them; and I lifted up my word with thee which I spake to David thy father. And I dwelt in the midst of the sons of Israel, and I will not forsake my people Israel And Solomon will build the house and finish it And he will build the walls of the house from within it with ribs of cedars; from the bottom of the house even to the walls of the covering he overlaid with wood from within, and he will overlay the bottom of the house with ribs of cypresses. And he will build twenty cubits from the thighs of the house with ribs of cedars, from the bottom even to the walls: and he will build for it from within for the oracle to the holy of holies. And forty by the cubit was the house; it the temple before. And cedar to the house within carved work with ornaments and opening flower-buds; all cedar: no stone was seen. And the oracle in the midst of the house from within he prepared to give there the ark of the covenant of Jehovah. And to the face of the oracle twenty cubits the length, and twenty cubits the breadth, and twenty cubits its height: and he will overlay it with gold shut up, and he will overlay the altar with cedar. And Solomon will overlay the house from the inside with gold shut up: and he will close up with chains of gold to the face of the oracle; and he will overlay it with gold. And all the house he overlaid with gold even till he completed all the house: and all the altar which was to the oracle he overlaid with gold. And he will make in the oracle two cherubims of woods of oil, ten cubits its height And five cubits the one wing of the cherub, and five cubits the second wing of the cherub: ten cubits from the extremities of its wings and even to the extremities of its wings. And ten by the cubit of the second cherub: one measure and one form to the two cherubs. The height of the one cherub ten by the cubit, and this to the second cherub. And he will give the cherubims in the midst of the house within: and the cherubims will expand the wings, and the wing of the one will touch upon the wall, and the wing of the second cherub touched upon the second wall; and their wings touched wing to wing to the middle of the house. And he will overlay the cherabims with gold. And all the walls of the house round about he carved with engravings of cherubims and palm trees and opening flower-buds from within and to without And the bottom of the house he overlaid with gold from within and to without And the openings of the oracle he made doors of the woods of oil: the projection of door-posts the fifth. And two doors of woods of oil; and he carved upon them carvings of cherubims, and palm-trees, and opening flower-buds, and he overlaid with gold, and he brought down gold upon the cherubims and upon the palm-trees. And thus be made for the door of the temple, door-posts of woods of oil from the fourth. And two doors of the woods of cypresses: two ribs of the one door rolling, and two ribs of the second door rolling. And he carved cherubims,and palm-trees, and opening flower-buds; and he overlaid with gold made even upon the carving. And he will build the enclosure of the insides three rows of cuttings, and a row of cuttings of cedars. In the fourth year was the house of Jehovah founded, in the month of brightness. And in the eleventh year in the month of rain (this the eighth month) was the house finished to all its words and according to all its judgment And he will build it seven years. And Solomon built his house thirteen years, and he will finish his house. And he will build the house of the forest of Lebanon; a hundred cubits its length, and fifty cubits its breadth, and and thirty cubits its height, upon four rows of pillars of cedars, and cuttings of cedars upon the pillars. And it was covered with cedar from above upon the ribs which were upon the forty and five pillars, fifteen to the row. And bars, three rows, and window against window, three steps. And all the doors and door-posts, quadrated with the bar: and the front of the window against the window, three steps. And he made a porch of pillars, fifty cubits its length, and thirty cubits its breadth: and the porch upon the face of them: and the pillars and the threshold upon the face of them. And a porch of the throne upon which he will judge there, a porch of judgment he made: and it was covered with cedar from the bottom even to the bottom. And his house where he dwelt there, another enclosure, from the house to the porch was according to this work And he will make a house for Pharaoh's daughter which Solomon took, according to this porch. All these precious stones according to the measures of cuttings, sawings with a saw, from within and from without, and from the foundation even to the expansions, and from without even to the great enclosure. And the foundation precious stones, great stones; stones of ten cubits and stones of eight cubits. And from above precious stones according to the measure of the cuttings and the cedars. And the great enclosure round about, three rows of cuttings, and a row of cuttings of cedars, and for the enclosure of the house of Jehovah within, and for the porch of the house. And king Solomon will send and take Hiram out of Tyre. Son of a widow woman from the tribe of Naphtali, and his father a Tyrian man, an artificer of brass; and he will be filled with wisdom and understanding, and knowledge to do all the work in brass. And he will come to king Solomon and do all his works. And he formed two pillars of brass, eighteen cubits the height of the one pillar: and a thread of twelve cubits will surround the two pillars. And he made two crowns upon the heads of the pillars, of molten brass: five cubits the height of the one crown, and five cubits the height of the second crown. Lattices of net work, festoons of chain work for the crown which was upon the head of the pillars; seven for the one crown and seven for the second crown. And he will make the pillars, and two rows round about upon the one net for covering the crowns which were upon the head, with pomegranates: and thus he made for the second crown. And the crowns which were upon the head of the, pillars of lily-work in the porch, four cubits. And the crowns upon the two pillars also from above from over against the belly which was beyond the net: the pomegranates two hundred in rows round about upon the second crown. And he will raise up the pillars for the porch of the temple: and he will raise up the right pillar and call its name Jachin: and he will raise up the left pillar and call its name Boaz. And upon the head of the pillars the work of the lily: and the work of the pillars will be completed. And he will make the sea molten, ten by the cubit, from its lip even to its lip, round, round about; and five by the cubit its height; and a rope thirty by the cubit will surround it round about And ornaments from beneath to its lip round about surrounding it, ten by the cubit, folding round the sea round about: two rows of ornaments being cast in its casting. It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking to the north, and three looking to the sea, and three looking to the south, and three looking to the sunrising: and the sea upon them from above, and all their behinds inside: And its thickness a hand breadth, and its lip as the work of the lip of a cup the flower of the lily: it will hold two thousand baths. And he will make ten bases of brass, four by the cubit the length of the one base, and four by the cubit its breadth, and three by the cubit its height And this the work of the base: borders to them, and borders between the joinings: And upon the borders which were between the joinings, lions, oxen, and cherubs: and upon the joinings thus from above: and from beneath to the lions and to the oxen, wreaths, a work of descent And four wheels of brass to the one base, and axles of brass: and its four steps, shoulders to them: from under to the wash basin the shoulders molten from beyond each of the wreaths. And its mouth from within to the crown and from above, by the cubit: and the mouth, round; the work thus a cubit and half a cubit: and also upon the mouth engravings and their borders, quadrated, not round. And four wheels beneath to the borders; and hands of the wheels in the base: and the height of the one wheel a cubit and half of the cubit And the work of the wheels as the work of a wheel of the chariot: their hands and their backs and their joinings and their gatherings all cast And four shoulders to four corners of the one base: from the base its shoulder. And in the head of the base its height, half a cubit rounded round about: and upon the head of the base its hands and its borders from out of it And he will open, upon the cheeks of its hands and upon its borders, cherubs, lions, and palm-trees, according to the nakedness of each, and wreaths round about According to this he made the ten bases, one casting, one measure, one form to all of them. And he will make ten wash-basins of brass: the one wash-basin will hold forty baths, four by the cubit the one wash-basin, the one wash-basin upon the one base to the ten bases And he will give five bases upon the shoulder of the house from the right, and five upon the shoulder of the house from its left: and he gave the sea from the shoulder of the house to the right to the east over against the south. And Hiram will make the washbasins and the shovels and the vases: and Hiram will finish doing all the work which he made for king Solomon in the house of Jehovah. The two pillars and the globes of the crowns which were upon the head of the two pillars and the two nets to cover the two globes of the crowns which were upon the head of the pillars; And four hundred pomegranates to the two nets, two rows of pomegranates to the one net, to cover the two globes of the crowns which were upon the face of the pillars; And the ten ases and the ten wash-basins upon the bases; And the one sea and the twelve oxen under the sea; And the pots and the shovels and the vases: and all these vessels which Hiram made for king Solomon of the house of Jehovah, of polished brass. In the circuit of Jordan the king cast them, in the density of the earth between Succoth and between Zarthan. And Solomon will leave all the vessels, an exceeding great multitude: and the weight of the brass was not searched out And Solomon will make all the vessels which are for the house of Jehovah: the altar of gold, and the table which was upon it the bread of the face, of gold. And the chandeliers, five from the right, and five from the left, before the oracle, of gold shut up; and the flower, and the lamps, and the tongs of gold. And the thresholds, and the snuffers, and the vases, and the pans, and the fire-pans, of gold shut up; and the openings to the doors of the house within to the holy of holies, to the doors of the house to the temple, of gold. And all the work will be completed which king Solomon made for the house of Jehovah. And Solomon will bring in the holy things of David his father: the silver and the gold and the vessels he gave into the treasures of the house of Jehovah. Then Solomon will convoke together the old men of Israel and all the heads of the tribes, chiefs of the fathers to the sons of Israel, to king Solomon at Jerusalem, to bring up the ark of the covenant of Jehovah from the city of David: this is Zion. And every man of Israel will be convoked to king Solomon in the month Ethanim in the festival: this the seventh month. And all the old men of Israel will come, and the priests will lift up the ark And they will bring up the ark of Jehovah, and the tent of appointment, and all the holy vessels which were in the tent, and the priests and the Levites will bring them up. And king Solomon and all the assembly of Israel assembled together to him, with him before the ark sacrificing sheep and oxen which shall not be counted and shall not be numbered for multitude. And the priests will bring up the ark of the covenant of Jehovah to its place to the oracle of the house to the holy of holies, to beneath the wings of the cherubims. For the cherubims spreading out their wings to the place of the ark, and the cherubims will cover over the ark and over the parts from above. And they will prolong the bars and the heads of the bars will be seen from the holies upon the face of the oracle, and they will not be seen without; and they will be there till this day. Nothing in the ark only the two tables of stones that Moses set down there in Horeb which Jehovah cut out with the sons of Israel in their coming out of the land of Egypt And it will be in the priests' coming out of the holy place, and the cloud filled the house of Jehovah. And the priests will not be able to stand to serve from the face of the cloud for the glory of Jehovah filled the house of Jehovah. Then said Solomon, Jehovah spake to dwell in thick clouds. Building, I built a house for thee to dwell, a place for thy resting forever. And thy king will turn his face round and bless all the convocation of Israel; and all the convocation of Israel stood; And he will say, Blessed Jehovah the God of Israel, who spake by his mouth to David my father, and by his hand filled up, saying, From the day which I brought forth my people Israel out of Egypt I chose not a city from all the tribes of Israel to build a house for my name to be there; and I will choose upon David to be over my people Israel And it will be with the heart of David my father to build a house for name of Jehovah the God of Israel And Jehovah will say to David my father, Because it was with thy heart to build a house for my name, it was good it was with thy heart But thou shalt not build a house, but thy son coming forth from thy loins, he shall build the house for my name. And Jehovah will raise up his word which he spake; and I shall rise instead of David my father, and sit upon the throne of Israel, as Jehovah spake; and I will build the house for the name of Jehovah the God of Israel And I will set there a place for the ark, where is there the covenant of Jehovah which he cut out with our fathers in his bringing them out of the land of Egypt And Solomon will stand at the face of the altar of Jehovah before all the convocation of Israel, and he will spread forth his hands to the heavens: And he will say, Jehovah the God of Israel, none like thee, the God in the heavens from above and upon the earth from beneath, watching the covenant and the mercy to thy servants going before thee with all their heart: Which thou didst watch to thy servant David my father what thou spakest to him: and thou wilt speak with thy mouth, and with thy hand thou didst complete as this day. And now Jehovah God of Israel watch to thy servant David my father what thou spakest to him, saying, There shall not be cut off to thee a man from my face sitting upon the throne of Israel; only if thy sons shall watch their way to go before me as thou didst go before me. And now, O God of Israel, thy word now shall be firm which thou spakest to thy servant David my father. For truly shall God dwell upon the earth? Behold the heavens and the heavens of the heavens shall not contain thee; much less this house which I built And look to the supplication of thy servant, and to his prayer, O Jehovah my God, to hear to the cry and to the supplication which thy servant prays before thee this day: For thine eye to be opened to this house night and day, to the place of which thou saidst, My name shall be there; to hear to the supplication which thy servant shall pray to this place. And wilt thou hear to the prayer of thy servant and of thy people Israel which they shall pray to this place? and wilt thou hear to the place of thy dwelling to the heavens? and hear and forgive? Whatever man shall sin against his neighbor, and an oath lifted up upon him to cause him to swear, and the oath come before thine altar in this house, And thou wilt hear in the heavens, and do, and judge thy servants to condemn the unjust, to give his way upon his head, and to acquit the just, to give to him according to his justice. In thy people Israel being struck before the enemy because they will sin against thee, and they turned back to thee, and they confessed thy name and prayed, and made supplication to thee in this house. And wilt thou hear in the heavens and forgive to the sin of thy people Israel, and turn them back to the land which thou gavest to their fathers? In the heavens being shut up and there will be no rain when they shall sin against thee; and they pray to this place and profess thy name, and they turn back from their sin when thou shalt humble them: And wilt thou hear in the heavens and forgive to the sin of thy servants and of thy people Israel? for thou wilt teach them the good way which they shall go in it, and give rain upon thy land which thou gavest to thy people for an inheritance. If famine shall be in the land, if there shall be death, blasting, yellowness, the locust devouring; if his enemy shall press upon him in the land of his gates, every blow, every sickness; Every prayer, every supplication which shall be to every man to all thy people Israel which shall know a man the blow to his heart and spread forth his hands to this house: Wilt thou hear in the heavens thy prepared dwelling, and forgive and do, and give to a man according to all his ways? for thou wilt know his heart; for thou wilt know alone the heart of all the sons of men: So that they will fear thee all the days which they live upon the face of the earth which thou gavest to our fathers. And also for the strangers which are not of thy people Israel, he shall come from a land afar off for sake of thy name; (For they will hear of thy great name and thy strong hand, and thy stretched out arm;) and coming and praying to this house; Wilt thou hear in the heavens thy prepared dwelling, and do according to all the stranger shall call upon thee? so that all the people of the earth shall know thy name to fear thee as thy people Israel; and to know that thy name was called upon this house which I built If thy people shall go forth to war against his enemy in the way which thou shalt send them, and pray to Jehovah the way of the city which thou didst choose in it, and the house which I built for thy name: And hear thou in the heavens their supplication and their prayer, and do their judgment For they will sin against thee (for no man which will not sin) and thou wert angry with them and gave them before the enemy, and they carried them away their captives to the land of the enemy, far off or near; And they turned back to their heart in the land which they were carried captive there, and they turned back and supplicated to thee in the land of their captivity, saying, We sinned and acted perversely, and did evil; And they turned back to thee with all their heart and with all their soul in the land of their enemies who carried them captive, and prayed to thee the way of their land which thou gavest to their fathers, the city which thou didst choose, and the house which I built to thy name: And hear in the heavens thy prepared dwelling, their supplication and their prayer, and do their judgment, And forgive to thy people who sinned against thee, and all their transgressions which they transgressed against thee, and give them for compassion before those carrying them captive, and they compassionated them: For they thy people and thine inheritance which thou broughtest forth out of Egypt from the midst of the furnace of iron: For thine eyes to be opened to the prayer of thy servant and to the prayer of thy people Israel, to hear to them in all their calling to thee. For thou didst separate them to thyself for an inheritance from all the people of the earth as thou spakest by the hand of Moses thy servant, in thy bringing our fathers out of the land of Egypt, O Lord Jehovah. And it will be as Solomon finished praying to Jehovah all this supplication and prayer, he rose from the face of the altar of Jehovah, from bending upon his knees and his hands spread forth to the heavens. And he will stand and bless all the convocation of Israel with a great voice, saying, Blessed Jehovah who gave rest to his people Israel, according to all which he spake: there fell not one word from all his good word which he spake by the hand of Moses his servant Jehovah our God will be with us as he was with our fathers: he will not forsake us, and he will not cast us off. To incline our heart to him, to go in all his ways, and to watch his commands and his laws and his judgments which he commanded our fathers. And these words which I supplicated before Jehovah shall be drawing near to Jehovah our God day and night, to do the judgment of his servant and the judgment of his people Israel, the word of a day in its day. For all the people of the earth to know that Jehovah he is God, none besides. And your hearts be perfect with Jehovah our God to go in his laws, and to watch his commands as this day. And the king and all Israel with him sacrificed a sacrifice before Jehovah. And Solomon will sacrifice a sacrifice of peace which he sacrificed to Jehovah, twenty and two thousand oxen, and a hundred and twenty thousand sheep. And the king and all the sons of Israel will consecrate the house of Jehovah. In that day the king consecrated the middle of the enclosure which was before the house of Jehovah: for he did there the burnt-offering and the gifts and the fat of the peace: for the altar of brass which was before Jehovah was little for containing the burnt-offering and the gifts and the fat of the peace And Solomon will make the festival in that day, and all Israel with him, a great convocation from the going in of Hamath even to the torrent of Egypt, before Jehovah our God seven days and seven days, fourteen days. In the eighth day he sent away the people, and they will bless the king and go to their tents rejoicing and good of heart for all the good which Jehovah did for David his servant and for Israel his people. And it will be when Solomon finished building the house of Jehovah, and the house of the king, and all the pleasure of Solomon which he desired to do, And Jehovah will be seen to Solomon the second time as he was seen to him in the hill. And Jehovah will say to him, I heard thy supplication and thy prayer which thou didst supplicate before me: I consecrated this house which thou didst build to put my name there even to forever; and mine eyes and my heart were there all the days. And thou, if thou shalt go before me as David thy father went with integrity of heart and in uprightness to do according to all that I commanded thee, my law and my judgment thou shalt watch: And I raised up the throne of thv kingdom over Israel forever, as spake to David thy father, saying, There shall not be cut off to thee a man from the throne of Israel. If turning back, ye shall turn back, ye and your sons from after me, and shall not watch my commands, my laws which I gave before you, and ye went and served other gods and worshiped to them: And I cut off Israel from the face of the earth which I gave to them and the house which I consecrated to my name I will cast out from my face; and Israel was for a parable and for a derision among all peoples. And this house shall be high, every one passing by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss: and they said, For what did Jehovah thus to this land and to this house? And they said, Because they forsook Jehovah their God who brought forth their fathers out of the land of Egypt, and they will lay hold upon other gods and worship to them, and serve them: for this, Jehovah brought, upon them all this evil. And it will be from the end of twenty years, when Solomon built the two houses, the house of Jehovah and the house of the king, (Hiram, king of Tyre, aided Solomon in woods of cedars and in woods of cypresses, and in gold to all his desire) then king Solomon will give Hiram twenty cities in the land of Galilee. And Hiram came out from Tyre to see the cities which Solomon gave to him, and they were not right in his eyes. And he will say, What these cities which thou gavest to me, my brother? And he will call them the land Cabul even to this day. And Hiram will send to the king a hundred and twenty talents of gold. And this the word of tribute which king Solomon brought up to build the house of Jehovah, and his house, and the fortress, and the walls of Jerusalem, and the enclosure, and Megiddo, and Gezer. Pharaoh king of Egypt came up, and he will take Gezer and burn it in fire, and he killed the Canaanite dwelling in the city, and he will give it a sending to his daughter, Solomon's And Solomon will build Gezer, and the house of the hollow below, And Baalath and Tadmor in the desert, in the land. And all the cities of stores which were to Solomon, and the cities of chariots, and the cities of horsemen, and the pleasure of Solomon which he pleased to build in Jerusalem, and in Lebanon; and in all the land of his ruling. All the people remaining of the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Hivites and the Jebusites, which were not of the sons of Israel; Their sons which were left after them in the land, which the sons of Israel will not be able to destroy them, and Solomon will bring them up for tribute of work even to this day. And of the sons of Israel, Solomon gave not to serve, for they were men of war, and his servants and his chiefs, and his warriors, and chiefs of chariots, and his horsemen. These the chiefs being stationed which were over the work to Solomon, fifty and five hundred going down among the people working in the work But Pharaoh's daughter went up from the city of David to her house which he built for her: then he built the fortress. And Solomon brought up three times in a year burnt-offerings and peace upon the altar which he built to Jehovah, and he burnt incense upon it that was before Jehovah: and he completed the house. And Solomon made a ship in Ezion-Geber, which is with Eloth, upon the lip of the sea of sedge in the land of Edom. And Hiram will send in the ships his servants, men of ships, knowing the sea with Solomon's servants. And they will come to Ophir, and take gold, four hundred and twenty talents, and bring to king Solomon. And queen Sheba heard the report of Solomon for the name of Jehovah, and she will come to try him in enigmas. And she will come to Jerusalem with very weighty strength, camels lifting up spices, and exceeding much gold and precious stone: and she will come to Solomon and will speak to him all which was in her heart And Solomon will announce to her all her words: there was not a word hid from the king which he announced not to her. And queen Sheba will see all Solomon's wisdom, and the house which he built, And the food of his table, and the seats of his servants, and the standing of his attendants, and their vestments, and his cup-bearers, and his burnt-offerings which he will bring up to the house of Jehovah; and no more spirit was in her. And she will say to the king, The word was truth which I heard in my land concerning thy words, and concerning thy wisdom. And I believed not the words until I came, and mine eyes will see it: and behold, the half was not announced to me: thou didst add wisdom and good to the report which I heard. Happy thy men, happy these thy servants, standing before thee continually, hearing thy wisdom. Jehovah thy God will be blessed, who delighted in thee to give thee upon the throne of Israel: in Jehovah's loving Israel forever, and he will set thee up for king to do judgment and justice. And she will give to the king a hundred and twenty talents of gold, and spices very many, and precious stone; there came no more as this spice for multitude which queen Sheba gave to king Solomon. And also the ship of Hiram which lifted up gold from Ophir, brought from Ophir woods of almugs very many, and precious stone. And the king will make of the almug trees a support for the house of Jehovah, and for the king's house, harps and lyres for songs; there came not such woods of almugs, and were not seen even to this day. And king Solomon gave to queen Sheba all her desire which she asked, besides what he gave to her according to the hand of king Solomon. And she will turn and go to her land, she and her servants And the weight of gold which came to Solomon in one year will be six hundred sixty and six talents of gold, Besides from the men travelling about and from the traffic of the merchants, and all the kings of Arabia and all the prefects of the earth. And king Solomon will make two hundred shields of beaten gold; six hundred of gold will come up upon the one shield. And three hundred shields of beaten gold; three parts of gold will come up upon the one shield: and the king will give them to the house of the forest of Lebanon. And the king will make a great ivory throne, and overlaid it with pure gold. Six steps to the throne, and the head rounded to the throne from its back parts: and hands hence and thence upon the place of the seat, and two lions standing beside the hands. And twelve lions standing there upon the six steps, hence and thence: there was not made thus to all the kingdoms. And all the drinking vessels of king Solomon, gold, and every vessel of the house of the forest of Lebanon, gold shut up; nothing silver: it was not reckoned in the days of Solomon for any thing. for a ship of Tharshish to the king in the sea with the ship of Hiram: one for three years will come, a ship of Tharshish lifting up gold and silver and ivory and apes and peacocks. And king Solomon will be magnified above all the kings of the earth for riches and for wisdom. And all the earth are seeking the face of Solomon to hear his wisdom which God gave in his heart And they were bringing each his gifts, vessels of silver and vessels of gold, and garments and weapons and spices, horses, and mules, the word of a year in a year. And Solomon will gather together chariots and horsemen: and there will be to him a thousand and four hundred chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen; and he will set them down in the cities of chariots and with the king in Jerusalem. And the king will give silver in Jerusalem, as stones, and cedars he gave as sycamores which are in the plain for multitude. And a going forth of horses out of Egypt to Solomon, and a caravan of the king's merchants will take the caravan at a price. And a chariot will go up and come forth out of Egypt with six hundred of silver, and a horse at fifty and a hundred: and thus for all the kings of the Hittites and for the kings of Aram, by their hand they will bring forth. And king Solomon loved many strange women, and the daughter of Pharaoh, Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, Hittites; From the nations which Jehovah said to the sons of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, and they shall not come in to you: surely they will turn your heart after their gods: to these Solomon joined to love. And there will be to him seven hundred chief wives, and three hundred concubines: and his wives will turn his heart And it will be at the time of the old age of Solomon his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with Jehovah his God as the heart of David his father. And Solomon will go after Ashtaroth the god of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites. And Solomon will do evil in the eyes of Jehovah, and he will not fill up after Jehovah as David his father. Then Solomon will build a height for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the mountain which is upon the face of Jerusalem, and for the king, the abomination of the sons of Ammon. And thus he did for all his strange wives, they burning incense and sacrificing to their gods. And Jehovah will be angry with Solomon, for his heart was turned from Jehovah the God of Israel, being seen to him twice. And he commanded him concerning this word not to go after other gods: and he watched not what Jehovah commanded. And Jehovah will say to Solomon, Because this was with thee, and thou didst not watch my covenant and my laws which I commanded upon thee, rending, I will rend the kingdom from thee and give it to thy servant But in thy days I will not do it for sake of David thy father; out of the hand of thy son will I rend it But I will not rend all the kingdom; one tribe I will give to thy son for sake of David my servant, and for sake of Jerusalem which I chose. And Jehovah will raise up an adversary to Solomon, Hadad the Edomite: he from the king's seed in Edom. And it will be in David's being in Edom, and in Joab the chief of the army going up, he came to bury the slain, and he will strike every male in Edom; (For six months Joab dwelt there and all Israel, till he cut off every male in Edom.) And Hahad will flee, he and the men, Edomites, his father's servants, with him to go to Egypt; and Hadad a small boy. And they will rise from Midian and come to Paran: and they will take men with them from Paran, and they will go to Egypt to Pharaoh king of Egypt; and he will give to him a house and spake bread for him, and gave to him land. And Hadad will find favor in the eyes of Pharaoh greatly, and he will give to him a wife, sister of his wife, sister of Tahpenes the mistress. And the sister of Tahpenes will bare to him Genubath his son, and Tahpenes will wean him in the midst of Pharaoh's house: and Genubath will be in Pharaoh's house in the midst of Pharaoh's sons. And Hadad heard in Egypt that David lay down with his fathers, and that Joab chief of the army died, and Hadad will say to Pharaoh, Send me away, and I will go to my land. And Pharaoh will say to him, For what lackest thou with me, and behold thee seeking to go to thy land? and he will say, Naught: but sending, thou shalt send me away. And God will raise up to him an adversary, Rezon, son of Eliadah, who lied from Hadadezer king of Zobah his lord. And he will gather to himself men, and he will be chief of a troop in David's killing them; and they will go to Damascus and dwell in it and reign in Damascus. And he will be an adversary to Israel all the days of Solomon, and the evil which Hadad did: and he will abhor against Israel and he will reign over Aram. And Jeroboam son of Nebat, an Ephrathite of Zereda, and his mother's name Zeruah, a widow woman, servant to Solomon, and he will lift up the hand against the king. And this the word for which he lifted up the hand against the king: Solomon built the fortress and shut up the breaches of the city of David his father. And the man Jeroboam mighty of strength: and Solomon will see the boy that he did work, and he will appoint him for the burden of the house of Joseph. And it will be in that time, and Jeroboam went forth from Jerusalem, and Ahijah the Shilonite will find him going in the way; and he being covered with a new garment; and they two alone in the field. And Ahijah will lay hold upon the new garment which was upon him and will rend it in twelve rents: And he will say to Jeroboam, Take to thee ten rents: for thus said Jehovah God of Israel, Behold me rending the kingdom out of the hand of Solomon, and I gave to thee ten tribes: (And the one tribe shall be to him, for sake of my servant David, and for sake of Jerusalem the city which I chose in it from all the tribes of Israel:) Because they forsook me and worshiped to Ashtaroth the god of Zidon, and to Chemosh, god of Moab, and to Milcom, god of the sons of Ammon, and they went not in my way to do the straight in mine eyes, and my laws and my judgments as David his father. And I will not take all the kingdom from his hand, for I will set him chief all the days of his life for sake of David my servant whom I chose him. because he watched my commands and my laws. And I took the kingdom from the hand of his son and gave it to thee, the ten tribes. And to his son I will give one tribe on account of there being a light to David my servant all the days before me in Jerusalem the city which I chose to me to put my name there. And I will take thee, and thou shalt reign according to all which thy soul shall desire, and be king over Israel. And being if thou shalt hear all that I shall command thee, and go in my way and do the straight in mine eyes to watch my laws and my commands as David my servant did, and I was with thee and built to thee a faithful house as I built to David, and I gave Israel to thee. And I will humble the seed of David for this, but not all the days. And Solomon will seek to kill Jeroboam, and Jeroboam will rise and flee to Egypt to Shishak, king of Egypt, and he will be in Egypt till the death of Solomon. And the remainder of the words of Solomon and all that he did, and his wisdom, are they not written upon the book of the words of Solomon? And the days which Solomon reigned in Jerusalem over all Israel were forty years. And Solomon will lie down with his fathers and be buried in the city of David his father: and Rehoboam his son will reign instead of him.
And he will build upon the wall of the house a floor round about the walls of the house round about for the temple, for the oracle: and he will make ribs round about The floor the lower part, five by the cubit its breadth, and the middle, six by the cubit its breadth, and the third, seven by the cubit its breadth: for he gave offsets to the house round about without, so that it laid not hold upon the walls of the house.

And Jehosheba daughter of king Joram, sister of Ahaziah, will take Joash son of Ahaziah, and steal him from the midst of the king's sons being slain, him and his nurse in the bed-chamber, and they will hide him from the face of Athaliah, and he was not killed. And he will be with her in the house of Jehovah being hid six years. And Athaliah reigned over the land.
