PARALEIPOMENON 1 (CHRONICLES 1)
ΚΑΙ ἔστη διάβολος ἐν τῷ ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ἐπέσεισε τὸν Δαυὶδ τοῦ ἀριθμῆσαι τὸν ᾿Ισραήλ.
2 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυὶδ πρὸς ᾿Ιωὰβ καὶ πρὸς τοὺς ἄρχοντας τῆς δυνάμεως· πορεύθητε, ἀριθμήσατε τὸν ᾿Ισραὴλ ἀπὸ Βηρσαβεὲ καὶ ἕως Δὰν καὶ ἐνέγκατε πρός με, καὶ γνώσομαι τὸν ἀριθμὸν αὐτῶν.
3 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Ιωάβ· προσθείη Κύριος ἐπὶ τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ, ὡς αὐτοὶ ἑκατονταπλασίως, καὶ οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ τοῦ κυρίου μου τοῦ βασιλέως βλέποντες· πάντες τῷ κυρίῳ μου παῖδες· ἱνατί ζητεῖ κύριός μου τοῦτο; ἵνα μὴ γένηται εἰς ἁμαρτίαν τῷ ᾿Ισραήλ.
4 τὸ δὲ ρῆμα τοῦ βασιλέως ἴσχυσεν ἐπὶ ᾿Ιωάβ, καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ᾿Ιωὰβ καὶ διῆλθεν ἐν παντὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ἦλθεν εἰς ῾Ιερουσαλήμ.
5 καὶ ἔδωκεν ᾿Ιωὰβ τὸν ἀριθμὸν τῆς ἐπισκέψεως τοῦ λαοῦ τῷ Δαυίδ, καὶ ἦν πᾶς ᾿Ισραὴλ χίλιαι χιλιάδες καὶ ἑκατὸν χιλιάδες ἀνδρῶν ἐσπασμένων μάχαιραν καὶ υἱοὶ ᾿Ιούδα τετρακόσιαι καὶ ἑβδομήκοντα χιλιάδες ἀνδρῶν ἐσπασμένων μάχαιραν.
6 καὶ τὸν Λευὶ καὶ τὸν Βενιαμὶν οὐκ ἠρίθμησεν ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν, ὅτι κατίσχυσε λόγος τοῦ βασιλέως τὸν ᾿Ιωάβ.
7 καὶ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον τοῦ Θεοῦ περὶ τοῦ πράγματος τούτου, καὶ ἐπάταξε τὸν ᾿Ισραήλ.
8 καὶ εἶπε Δαυὶδ πρὸς τὸν Θεόν· ἡμάρτηκα σφόδρα, ὅτι ἐποίησα τὸ πρᾶγμα τοῦτο· καὶ νῦν περίελε δὴ τὴν κακίαν παιδός σου, ὅτι ἐματαιώθην σφόδρα.
9 καὶ ἐλάλησε Κύριος πρὸς Γὰδ τὸν ὁρῶντα λέγων·
10 πορεύου καὶ λάλησον πρὸς Δαυὶδ λέγων· οὕτω λέγει Κύριος· τρία αἱρῶ ἐγὼ ἐπὶ σέ, ἔκλεξαι σεαυτῷ ἓν ἐξ αὐτῶν καὶ ποιήσω σοι.
11 καὶ ἦλθε Γὰδ πρὸς Δαυὶδ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· οὕτως λέγει Κύριος· ἔκλεξαι σεαυτῷ
12 ἢ τρία ἔτη λιμοῦ, ἢ τρεῖς μῆνας φεύγειν σε ἐκ προσώπου ἐχθρῶν σου καὶ μάχαιραν ἐχθρῶν σου τοῦ ἐξολοθρεῦσαι, ἢ τρεῖς ἡμέρας ρομφαίαν Κυρίου καὶ θάνατον ἐν τῇ γῇ καὶ ἄγγελος Κυρίου ἐξολοθρεύων ἐν πάσῃ κληρονομίᾳ ᾿Ισραήλ· καὶ νῦν ἰδὲ τί ἀποκριθῶ τῷ ἀποστείλαντί με λόγον.
13 καὶ εἶπε Δαυὶδ πρὸς Γάδ· στενά μοι καὶ τὰ τρία σφόδρα· ἐμπεσοῦμαι δὴ εἰς χεῖρας Κυρίου, ὅτι πολλοὶ οἱ οἰκτιρμοὶ αὐτοῦ σφόδρα, καὶ εἰς χεῖρας ἀνθρώπων οὐ μὴ ἐμπέσω.
14 καὶ ἔδωκε Κύριος θάνατον ἐν ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἔπεσον ἐξ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἑβδομήκοντα χιλιάδες ἀνδρῶν.
15 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ὁ Θεὸς ἄγγελον εἰς ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ τοῦ ἐξολοθρεῦσαι αὐτήν. καὶ ὡς ἐξωλόθρευσεν, εἶδε Κύριος καὶ μετεμελήθη ἐπὶ τῇ κακίᾳ καὶ εἶπε τῷ ἀγγέλῳ τῷ ἐξολοθρεύοντι· ἱκανούσθω σοι, ἄνες τὴν χεῖρά σου· καὶ ὁ ἄγγελος Κυρίου ἑστὼς ἐν τῷ ἅλῳ ᾿Ορνὰ τοῦ ᾿Ιεβουσαίου.
16 καὶ ἐπῇρε Δαυὶδ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶδε τὸν ἄγγελον Κυρίου ἑστῶτα ἀνὰ μέσον τῆς γῆς καὶ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, καὶ ἡ ρομφαία αὐτοῦ ἐσπασμένη ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ ἐκτεταμένη ἐπὶ ῾Ιερουσαλήμ· καὶ ἔπεσε Δαυὶδ καὶ οἱ πρεσβύτεροι περιβεβλημένοι ἐν σάκκοις ἐπὶ πρόσωπον αὐτῶν.
17 καὶ εἶπε Δαυὶδ πρὸς τὸν Θεόν· οὐκ ἐγὼ εἶπα τοῦ ἀριθμῆσαι ἐν τῷ λαῷ; καὶ ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ ἁμαρτών, κακοποιῶν ἐκακοποίησα, καὶ ταῦτα τὰ πρόβατα τί ἐποίησαν; Κύριε ὁ Θεός, γενηθήτω ἡ χείρ σου ἐν ἐμοὶ καὶ ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τοῦ πατρός μου καὶ μὴ ἐν τῷ λαῷ σου εἰς ἀπώλειαν, Κύριε.
18 καὶ ἄγγελος Κυρίου εἶπε τῷ Γὰδ τοῦ εἰπεῖν πρὸς Δαυίδ, ἵνα ἀναβῇ τοῦ στῆσαι θυσιαστήριον Κυρίῳ ἐν ἅλῳ ᾿Ορνὰ τοῦ ᾿Ιεβουσαίου.
19 καὶ ἀνέβη Δαυὶδ κατὰ τὸν λόγον Γάδ, ὃν ἐλάλησεν ἐν ὀνόματι Κυρίου.
20 καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν ᾿Ορνὰ καὶ εἶδε τὸν βασιλέα καὶ τέσσαρας υἱοὺς αὐτοῦ μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ μεθαχαβίν· καὶ ᾿Ορνὰ ἦν ἁλοῶν πυρούς.
21 καὶ ἦλθε Δαυὶδ πρὸς ᾿Ορνά, καὶ ᾿Ορνὰ ἐξῆλθεν ἐκ τῆς ἅλω καὶ προσεκύνησε τῷ Δαυὶδ τῷ προσώπῳ ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν.
22 καὶ εἶπε Δαυὶδ πρὸς ᾿Ορνά· δός μοι τὸν τόπον σου τῆς ἅλω, καὶ οἰκοδομήσω ἐπ᾿ αὐτῷ θυσιαστήριον τῷ Κυρίῳ· ἐν ἀργυρίῳ ἀξίῳ δός μοι αὐτόν, καὶ παύσεται ἡ πληγὴ ἐκ τοῦ λαοῦ.
23 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Ορνὰ πρὸς Δαυίδ· λαβὲ σεαυτῷ, καὶ ποιησάτω ὁ κύριός μου ὁ βασιλεὺς τὸ ἀγαθὸν ἐναντίον ἑαυτοῦ· ἰδὲ δέδωκα τοὺς μόσχους εἰς ὁλοκαύτωσιν καὶ τὸ ἄροτρον εἰς ξύλα καὶ τὸν σῖτον εἰς θυσίαν, τὰ πάντα δέδωκα.
24 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυὶδ τῷ ᾿Ορνά· οὐχί, ὅτι ἀγοράζων ἀγοράσω ἐν ἀργυρίῳ ἀξίῳ, ὅτι οὐ μὴ λάβω ἅ ἐστί σοι Κυρίῳ τοῦ ἀνανέγκαι ὁλοκαύτωσιν δωρεὰν Κυρίῳ.
25 καὶ ἔδωκε Δαυὶδ τῷ ᾿Ορνὰ ἐν τῷ τόπῳ αὐτοῦ σίκλους χρυσίου ὁλκῆς ἑξακοσίους.
26 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν ἐκεῖ Δαυὶδ θυσιαστήριον Κυρίῳ καὶ ἀνήνεγκεν ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ σωτηρίου· καὶ ἐβόησε πρὸς Κύριον, καὶ ἐπήκουσεν αὐτῷ ἐν πυρὶ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον τῆς ὁλοκαυτώσεως καὶ κατηνάλωσε τὴν ὁλοκαύτωσιν.
27 καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρὸς τὸν ἄγγελον, καὶ κατέθηκε τὴν ρομφαίαν εἰς τὸν κολεὸν αὐτῆς.
28 ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ ἐν τῷ ἰδεῖν τὸν Δαυὶδ ὅτι ἐπήκουσεν αὐτῷ Κύριος ἐν ἅλῳ ᾿Ορνὰ τοῦ ᾿Ιεβουσαίου, καὶ ἐθυσίασεν ἐκεῖ.
29 καὶ σκηνὴ Κυρίου, ἣν ἐποίησε Μωυσῆς ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ, καὶ θυσιαστήριον τῶν ὁλοκαυτωμάτων ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ ἐν Βαμὰ ἐν Γαβαών·
30 καὶ οὐκ ἐδύνατο Δαυὶδ τοῦ πορευθῆναι ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ τοῦ ζητῆσαι τὸν Θεόν, ὅτι οὐ κατέσπευσεν ἀπὸ προσώπου τῆς ρομφαίας ἀγγέλου Κυρίου.
ΚΑΙ εἶπε Δαυίδ· οὗτός ἐστιν ὁ οἶκος Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ καὶ τοῦτο τὸ θυσιαστήριον εἰς ὁλοκαύτωσιν τῷ ᾿Ισραήλ.
2 καὶ εἶπε Δαυὶδ συναγαγεῖν πάντας τοὺς προσηλύτους τοὺς ἐν γῇ ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ κατέστησε λατόμους λατομῆσαι λίθους ξυστοὺς τοῦ οἰκοδομῆσαι οἶκον τῷ Θεῷ.
3 καὶ σίδηρον πολὺν εἰς τοὺς ἥλους τῶν θυρωμάτων καὶ τῶν πυλῶν καὶ τοὺς στροφεῖς ἡτοίμασε Δαυὶδ καὶ χαλκὸν εἰς πλῆθος, οὐκ ἦν σταθμός·
4 καὶ ξύλα κέδρινα, οὐκ ἦν ἀριθμός, ὅτι ἐφέροσαν οἱ Σιδώνιοι καὶ οἱ Τύριοι ξύλα κέδρινα εἰς πλῆθος τῷ Δαυίδ.
5 καὶ εἶπε Δαυίδ· Σαλωμὼν ὁ υἱός μου παιδάριον ἁπαλόν, καὶ ὁ οἶκος τοῦ οἰκοδομῆσαι τῷ Κυρίῳ εἰς μεγαλωσύνην ἄνω, εἰς ὄνομα καὶ εἰς δόξαν εἰς πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν ἑτοιμάσω αὐτῷ· καὶ ἡτοίμασε Δαυὶδ εἰς πλῆθος ἔμπροσθεν τῆς τελευτῆς αὐτοῦ.
6 καὶ ἐκάλεσε Σαλωμὼν τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐνετείλατο αὐτῷ τοῦ οἰκοδομῆσαι τὸν οἶκον τῷ Κυρίῳ Θεῷ ᾿Ισραήλ.
7 καὶ εἶπε Δαυὶδ Σαλωμών· τέκνον, ἐμοὶ ἐγένετο ἐπὶ ψυχῇ τοῦ οἰκοδομῆσαι οἶκον τῷ ὀνόματι Κυρίου Θεοῦ.
8 καὶ ἐγένετό μοι λόγος Κυρίου λέγων· αἷμα εἰς πλῆθος ἐξέχεας καὶ πολέμους μεγάλους ἐποίησας· οὐκ οἰκοδομήσεις οἶκον τῷ ὀνόματί μου, ὅτι αἵματα πολλὰ ἐξέχεας ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ἐναντίον μου.
9 ἰδοὺ υἱὸς τίκτεταί σοι, οὗτος ἔσται ἀνὴρ ἀναπαύσεως, καὶ ἀναπαύσω αὐτὸν ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν ἐχθρῶν αὐτοῦ κυκλόθεν, ὅτι Σαλωμὼν ὄνομα αὐτῷ, καὶ εἰρήνην καὶ ἡσυχίαν δώσω ἐπὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις αὐτοῦ.
10 οὗτος οἰκοδομήσει οἶκον τῷ ὀνόματί μου, καὶ οὗτος ἔσται μοι εἰς υἱὸν κἀγὼ αὐτῷ εἰς πατέρα, καὶ ἀνορθώσω θρόνον βασιλείας αὐτοῦ ἐν ᾿Ισραὴλ ἕως αἰῶνος.
11 καὶ νῦν, υἱέ μου, ἔσται μετὰ σοῦ Κύριος, καὶ εὐοδώσει, καὶ οἰκοδομήσεις οἶκον τῷ Κυρίῳ Θεῷ σου, ὡς ἐλάλησε περὶ σοῦ.
12 ἀλλ᾿ ἢ δῴη σοι σοφίαν καὶ σύνεσιν Κύριος καὶ κατισχύσαι σε ἐπὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ τοῦ φυλάσσεσθαι καὶ τοῦ ποιεῖν τὸν νόμον Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ σου.
13 τότε εὐοδώσει, ἐὰν φυλάξῃς τοῦ ποιεῖν τὰ προστάγματα καὶ τὰ κρίματα, ἃ ἐνετείλατο Κύριος τῷ Μωυσῇ ἐπὶ ᾿Ισραήλ· ἀνδρίζου καὶ ἴσχυε, μὴ φοβοῦ μηδὲ πτοηθῇς.
14 καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ κατὰ τὴν πτωχείαν μου ἡτοίμασα εἰς οἶκον Κυρίου χρυσίου ταλάντων ἑκατὸν χιλιάδας καὶ ἀργυρίου ταλάντων χιλίας χιλιάδας καὶ χαλκὸν καὶ σίδηρον, οὗ οὐκ ἔστι σταθμός, ὅτι εἰς πλῆθός ἐστι· καὶ ξύλα καὶ λίθους ἡτοίμασα, καὶ πρὸς ταῦτα πρόσθες.
15 καὶ μετὰ σοῦ εἰς πλῆθος ποιούντων ἔργα, τεχνῖται καὶ οἰκοδόμοι λίθων καὶ τέκτονες ξύλων καὶ πᾶς σοφὸς ἐν παντὶ ἔργῳ,
16 ἐν χρυσίῳ καὶ ἀργυρίῳ, ἐν χαλκῷ καὶ ἐν σιδήρῳ οὐκ ἔστιν ἀριθμός. ἀνάστηθι καὶ ποίει, καὶ Κύριος μετὰ σοῦ.
17 καὶ ἐνετείλατο Δαυὶδ τοῖς πᾶσιν ἄρχουσιν ᾿Ισραὴλ ἀντιλαβέσθαι τῷ Σαλωμὼν υἱῷ αὐτοῦ·
18 οὐχὶ Κύριος μεθ᾿ ὑμῶν; καὶ ἀνέπαυσεν ὑμᾶς κυκλόθεν, ὅτι ἔδωκεν ἐν χερσὶν ὑμῶν τοὺς κατοικοῦντας τὴν γῆν, καὶ ὑπετάγη ἡ γῆ ἐναντίον Κυρίου καὶ ἐναντίον λαοῦ αὐτοῦ.
19 νῦν δότε καρδίας ὑμῶν καὶ ψυχὰς ὑμῶν τοῦ ζητῆσαι τῷ Κυρίῳ Θεῷ ὑμῶν καὶ ἐγέρθητε καὶ οἰκοδομήσατε ἁγίασμα τῷ Θεῷ ὑμῶν τοῦ εἰσενέγκαι τὴν κιβωτὸν διαθήκης Κυρίου καὶ σκεύη τὰ ἅγια τοῦ Θεοῦ εἰς οἶκον τὸν οἰκοδομούμενον τῷ ὀνόματι Κυρίου.
ΚΑΙ Δαυὶδ πρεσβύτης καὶ πλήρης ἡμερῶν καὶ ἐβασίλευσε Σαλωμὼν τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾿ αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ ᾿Ισραήλ.
2 καὶ συνήγαγε τοὺς πάντας ἄρχοντας ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ τοὺς ἱερεῖς καὶ τοὺς Λευίτας.
3 καὶ ἠρίθμησαν οἱ Λευῖται ἀπὸ τριακονταετοῦς καὶ ἐπάνω, καὶ ἐγένετο ὁ ἀριθμὸς αὐτῶν κατὰ κεφαλὴν αὐτῶν εἰς ἄνδρας τριάκοντα καὶ ὀκτὼ χιλιάδας.
4 ἀπὸ τῶν ἐργοδιωκτῶν ἐπὶ τὰ ἔργα οἴκου Κυρίου εἰκοσιτέσσαρες χιλιάδες καὶ γραμματεῖς καὶ κριταὶ ἑξακισχίλιοι
5 καὶ τέσσαρες χιλιάδες πυλωροὶ καὶ τέσσαρες χιλιάδες αἰνοῦντες τῷ Κυρίῳ ἐν ὀργάνοις, οἷς ἐποίησε τοῦ αἰνεῖν τῷ Κυρίῳ.
6 καὶ διεῖλεν αὐτοὺς Δαυὶδ ἐφημερίας τοῖς υἱοῖς Λευί, τῷ Γεδσών, Καὰθ καὶ Μεραρί.
7 καὶ τῷ Γεδσών· ᾿Εδὰν καὶ Σεμεΐ.
8 υἱοὶ τῷ ᾿Εδάν· ἄρχων ᾿Ιεϊὴλ καὶ Ζηθὰν καὶ ᾿Ιωήλ, τρεῖς.
9 υἱοὶ Σεμεΐ· Σαλωμίθ, ᾿Ιεϊὴλ καὶ Δάν, τρεῖς. οὗτοι ἄρχοντες πατριῶν τῶν ᾿Εδάν.
10 καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς Σεμεΐ· ᾿Ιὲθ καὶ Ζιζὰ καὶ ᾿Ιωὰς καὶ Βεριά· οὗτοι υἱοὶ Σεμεΐ τέσσαρες.
11 καὶ ἦν ᾿Ιὲθ ὁ ἄρχων καὶ Ζιζὰ ὁ δεύτερος· καὶ ᾿Ιωὰς καὶ Βεριὰ οὐκ ἐπλήθυναν υἱοὺς καὶ ἐγένοντο εἰς οἶκον πατριᾶς εἰς ἐπίσκεψιν μίαν.
12 υἱοὶ Καάθ· ᾿Αμβράμ, ᾿Ισαάρ, Χεβρών, ᾿Οζιήλ, τέσσαρες.
13 υἱοὶ ᾿Αμβράμ, ᾿Ααρὼν καὶ Μωυσῆς. καὶ διεστάλη ᾿Ααρὼν τοῦ ἁγιασθῆναι ἅγια ἁγίων, αὐτὸς καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ ἕως αἰῶνος, τοῦ θυμιᾶν ἐναντίον τοῦ Κυρίου, λειτουργεῖν καὶ ἐπεύχεσθαι ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματι αὐτοῦ ἕως αἰῶνος.
14 καὶ Μωυσῆς ἄνθρωπος τοῦ Θεοῦ, υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ ἐκλήθησαν εἰς φυλὴν τοῦ Λευί.
15 υἱοὶ Μωυσῆ· Γηρσὰμ καὶ ᾿Ελιέζερ.
16 υἱοὶ Γηρσάμ· Σουβαὴλ ὁ ἄρχων.
17 καὶ ἦσαν υἱοὶ τῷ ᾿Ελιέζερ· Ραβιὰ ὁ ἄρχων· καὶ οὐκ ἦσαν τῷ ᾿Ελιέζερ υἱοὶ ἕτεροι. καὶ υἱοὶ Ραβιὰ ηὐξήθησαν εἰς ὕψος.
18 υἱοὶ ᾿Ισαάρ· Σαλωμὼθ ὁ ἄρχων.
19 υἱοὶ Χεβρών· ῾Ιεριὰ ὁ ἄρχων, ᾿Αμαδιὰ ὁ δεύτερος, ῾Ιεζιὴλ ὁ τρίτος, ᾿Ιεκεμίας ὁ τέταρτος.
20 υἱοὶ ᾿Οζιήλ· Μιχὰ ὁ ἄρχων καὶ ᾿Ισιὰ ὁ δεύτερος.
21 υἱοὶ Μεραρί· Μοολὶ καὶ Μουσί. υἱοὶ Μοολί· ᾿Ελεάζαρ καὶ Κίς.
22 καὶ ἀπέθανεν ᾿Ελεάζαρ, καὶ οὐκ ἦσαν αὐτῷ υἱοί, ἀλλ᾿ ἢ θυγατέρες, καὶ ἔλαβον αὐτὰς υἱοὶ Κὶς ἀδελφοὶ αὐτῶν.
23 υἱοὶ Μουσί· Μοολὶ καὶ ᾿Εδὲρ καὶ ᾿Ιαριμώθ, τρεῖς.
24 οὗτοι υἱοὶ Λευὶ κατ᾿ οἴκους πατριῶν αὐτῶν, ἄρχοντες τῶν πατριῶν αὐτῶν κατὰ τὴν ἐπίσκεψιν αὐτῶν, κατὰ τὸν ἀριθμὸν ὀνομάτων αὐτῶν, κατὰ κεφαλὴν αὐτῶν, ποιοῦντες τὰ ἔργα λειτουργίας οἴκου Κυρίου ἀπὸ εἰκοσαετοῦς καὶ ἐπάνω.
25 ὅτι εἶπε Δαυίδ· κατέπαυσε Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ᾿Ισραὴλ τῷ λαῷ αὐτοῦ καὶ κατεσκήνωσεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ ἕως αἰῶνος.
26 καὶ οἱ Λευῖται οὐκ ἦσαν αἴροντες τὴν σκηνὴν καὶ τὰ πάντα σκεύη αὐτῆς εἰς τὴν λειτουργίαν αὐτῆς·
27 ὅτι ἐν τοῖς λόγοις Δαυὶδ τοῖς ἐσχάτοις ἐστὶν ὁ ἀριθμὸς υἱῶν Λευὶ ἀπὸ εἰκοσαετοῦς καὶ ἐπάνω·
28 ὅτι ἔστησεν αὐτοὺς ἐπὶ χειρὶ ᾿Ααρὼν τοῦ λειτουργεῖν ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου ἐπὶ τὰς αὐλὰς καὶ ἐπὶ τὰ παστοφόρια καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν καθαρισμὸν τῶν πάντων ἁγίων καὶ ἐπὶ τὰ ἔργα λειτουργίας οἴκου τοῦ Θεοῦ
29 καὶ εἰς τοὺς ἄρτους τῆς προθέσεως καὶ εἰς τὴν σεμίδαλιν τῆς θυσίας καὶ εἰς τὰ λάγανα τὰ ἄζυμα καὶ εἰς τήγανον καὶ εἰς τὴν πεφυραμένην καὶ εἰς πᾶν μέτρον
30 καὶ τοῦ στῆναι πρωΐ τοῦ αἰνεῖν καὶ ἐξομολογεῖσθαι τῷ Κυρίῳ καὶ οὕτω τὸ ἑσπέρας
31 καὶ ἐπὶ πάντων τῶν ἀναφερομένων ὁλοκαυτωμάτων τῷ Κυρίῳ ἐν τοῖς σαββάτοις καὶ ἐν ταῖς νουμηνίαις καὶ ἐν ταῖς ἑορταῖς, κατὰ ἀριθμόν, κατὰ τὴν κρίσιν ἐπ᾿ αὐτοῖς διαπαντὸς τῷ Κυρίῳ.
32 καὶ φυλάξουσι τὰς φυλακὰς σκηνῆς τοῦ μαρτυρίου καὶ τὴν φυλακὴν τοῦ ἁγίου καὶ τὰς φυλακὰς υἱῶν ᾿Ααρὼν ἀδελφῶν αὐτῶν τοῦ λειτουργεῖν ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου.
ΚΑΙ τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Ααρὼν διαιρέσεις· Ναδὰβ καὶ ᾿Αβιοὺδ καὶ ᾿Ελεάζαρ καὶ ᾿Ιθάμαρ.
2 καὶ ἀπέθανε Ναδὰβ καὶ ᾿Αβιοὺδ ἐναντίον τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῶν, καὶ υἱοὶ οὐκ ἦσαν αὐτοῖς· καὶ ἱεράτευσεν ᾿Ελεάζαρ καὶ ᾿Ιθάμαρ υἱοὶ ᾿Ααρών.
3 καὶ διεῖλεν αὐτοὺς Δαυὶδ καὶ Σαδὼκ ἐκ τῶν υἱῶν ᾿Ελεάζαρ καὶ ᾿Αχιμέλεχ ἐκ τῶν υἱῶν ᾿Ιθάμαρ κατὰ τὴν ἐπίσκεψιν αὐτῶν, κατὰ τὴν λειτουργίαν αὐτῶν, κατ᾿ οἴκους πατριῶν αὐτῶν.
4 καὶ εὑρέθησαν οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ελεάζαρ πλείους εἰς ἄρχοντας τῶν δυνατῶν παρὰ τοὺς υἱοὺς ᾿Ιθάμαρ, καὶ διεῖλεν αὐτούς, τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Ελεάζαρ ἄρχοντας εἰς οἴκους πατριῶν ἑκκαίδεκα, καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Ιθάμαρ κατ᾿ οἴκους πατριῶν ὀκτώ.
5 καὶ διεῖλεν αὐτοὺς κατὰ κλήρους τούτους πρὸς τούτους, ὅτι ἦσαν ἄρχοντες τῶν ἁγίων καὶ ἄρχοντες Κυρίου ἐν τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Ελεάζαρ καὶ ἐν τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Ιθάμαρ.
6 καὶ ἔγραψεν αὐτοὺς Σαμαΐας υἱὸς Ναθαναὴλ ὁ γραμματεὺς ἐκ τοῦ Λευὶ κατέναντι τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τῶν ἀρχόντων καὶ Σαδὼκ ὁ ἱερεὺς καὶ ᾿Αχιμέλεχ υἱὸς ᾿Αβιάθαρ καὶ ἄρχοντες τῶν πατριῶν τῶν ἱερέων καὶ τῶν Λευιτῶν, οἴκου πατριᾶς εἷς εἷς τῷ ᾿Ελεάζαρ καὶ εἷς εἷς τῷ ᾿Ιθάμαρ.
7 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ὁ κλῆρος ὁ πρῶτος τῷ ᾿Ιωαρίμ, τῷ ᾿Ιεδίᾳ ὁ δεύτερος,
8 τῷ Χαρὶβ ὁ τρίτος, τῷ Σεωρὶμ ὁ τέταρτος,

19 αὕτη ἡ ἐπίσκεψις αὐτῶν κατὰ τὴν λειτουργίαν αὐτῶν τοῦ εἰσπορεύεσθαι εἰς οἶκον Κυρίου κατὰ τὴν κρίσιν αὐτῶν διὰ χειρὸς ᾿Ααρὼν πατρὸς αὐτῶν, ὡς ἐνετείλατο Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ᾿Ισραήλ.
20 Καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς Λευὶ τοῖς καταλοίποις· τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Αμβρὰμ Σωβαήλ· τοῖς υἱοῖς Σωβαὴλ ᾿Ιεδία.

27 υἱοὶ Μεραρὶ τῷ ᾿Οζίᾳ, υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ ᾿Ισοὰμ καὶ Σακχοὺρ καὶ ᾿Αβαΐ,
28 τῷ Μοολὶ ᾿Ελεάζαρ καὶ ᾿Ιθάμαρ· καὶ ἀπέθανεν ᾿Ελεάζαρ καὶ οὐκ ἦσαν αὐτῷ υἱοί.
29 τῷ Κίς· υἱοὶ τοῦ Κὶς ῾Ιεραμεήλ.
30 καὶ υἱοὶ τοῦ Μουσὶ Μοολὶ καὶ ᾿Εδὲρ καὶ ᾿Ιαριμώθ. οὗτοι υἱοὶ τῶν Λευιτῶν κατ᾿ οἴκους πατριῶν αὐτῶν.
31 καὶ ἔλαβον καὶ αὐτοὶ κλήρους καθὼς οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτῶν υἱοὶ ᾿Ααρὼν ἐναντίον τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ Σαδὼκ καὶ ᾿Αχιμέλεχ καὶ οἱ ἄρχοντες τῶν πατριῶν τῶν ἱερέων καὶ τῶν Λευιτῶν, πατριάρχαι ἀραὰβ καθὼς οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ οἱ νεώτεροι.
ΚΑΙ ἔστησε Δαυὶδ ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ οἱ ἄρχοντες τῆς δυνάμεως εἰς τὰ ἔργα τοὺς υἱοὺς ᾿Ασὰφ καὶ Αἰμὰν καὶ ᾿Ιδιθοὺν τοὺς ἀποφθεγγομένους ἐν κινύραις καὶ ἐν νάβλαις καὶ ἐν κυμβάλοις. καὶ ἐγένετο ὁ ἀριθμὸς αὐτῶν κατὰ κεφαλὴν αὐτῶν ἐργαζομένων ἐν τοῖς ἔργοις αὐτῶν.
2 υἱοὶ ᾿Ασάφ, Σακχοὺρ ᾿Ιωσὴφ καὶ Ναθανίας καὶ ᾿Εραήλ, υἱοὶ ᾿Ασὰφ ἐχόμενοι τοῦ βασιλέως.
3 τῷ ᾿Ιδιθοὺν υἱοὶ ᾿Ιδιθούν· Γοδολίας καὶ Σουρὶ καὶ ᾿Ισέας καὶ Σεμεΐ καὶ ᾿Ασαβίας καὶ Ματταθίας, ἓξ μετὰ τὸν πατέρα αὐτῶν ᾿Ιδιθούν, ἐν κινύρᾳ ἀνακρουόμενοι ἐξομολόγησιν καὶ αἴνεσιν τῷ Κυρίῳ.
4 τῷ Αἰμὰν υἱοὶ Αἰμάν· Βουκίας καὶ Ματθανίας καὶ ᾿Οζιὴλ καὶ Σουβαὴλ καὶ ᾿Ιεριμὼθ καὶ ᾿Ανανίας καὶ ᾿Ανὰν καὶ ῾Ελιαθὰ καὶ Γοδολλαθὶ καὶ Ρωμετθιέζερ καὶ ᾿Ιεσβασακὰ καὶ Μαλλιθὶ καὶ ᾿Ωθηρὶ καὶ Μεαζώθ·
5 πάντες οὗτοι υἱοὶ τῷ Αἰμὰν τῷ ἀνακρουομένῳ τῷ βασιλεῖ ἐν λόγοις Θεοῦ ὑψῶσαι κέρας. καὶ ἔδωκεν ὁ Θεὸς τῷ Αἰμὰν υἱοὺς τεσσαρεσκαίδεκα, καὶ θυγατέρας τρεῖς.
6 πάντες οὗτοι μετὰ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῶν ὑμνῳδοῦντες ἐν οἴκῳ Θεοῦ, ἐν κυμβάλοις καὶ νάβλαις καὶ ἐν κινύραις εἰς τὴν δουλείαν οἴκου τοῦ Θεοῦ, ἐχόμενα τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ᾿Ασάφ, καὶ ᾿Ιδιθοὺν καὶ Αἰμάν.
7 καὶ ἐγένετο ὁ ἀριθμὸς αὐτῶν μετὰ τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτῶν, δεδιδαγμένοι ᾄδειν Κυρίῳ, πᾶς συνιών, διακόσιοι ὀγδοήκοντα καὶ ὀκτώ.
8 καὶ ἔλαβον καὶ αὐτοὶ κλήρους ἐφημεριῶν κατὰ τὸν μικρὸν καὶ κατὰ τὸν μέγαν, τελείων καὶ μανθανόντων.

2 καὶ ἔστη Δαυὶδ ἐν μέσῳ τῆς ἐκκλησίας καὶ εἶπεν· ἀκούσατέ μου, ἀδελφοί μου καὶ λαός μου. ἐμοὶ ἐγένετο ἐπὶ καρδίαν οἰκοδομῆσαι οἶκον ἀναπαύσεως τῆς κιβωτοῦ διαθήκης Κυρίου καὶ στάσιν ποδῶν Κυρίου ἡμῶν, καὶ ἡτοίμασα τὰ εἰς τὴν κατασκήνωσιν ἐπιτήδεια·
3 καὶ ὁ Θεὸς εἶπεν· οὐκ οἰκοδομήσεις ἐμοὶ οἶκον τοῦ ἐπονομάσαι τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐπ᾿ αὐτῷ, ὅτι ἄνθρωπος πολεμιστὴς εἶ σὺ καὶ αἷμα ἐξέχεας.
4 καὶ ἐξελέξατο Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν ἐμοὶ ἀπὸ παντὸς οἴκου πατρός μου εἶναι βασιλέα ἐπὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα· καὶ ἐν ᾿Ιούδᾳ ᾑρέτικε τὸ βασίλειον καὶ ἐξ οἴκου ᾿Ιούδα τὸν οἶκον τοῦ πατρός μου, καὶ ἐν τοῖς υἱοῖς τοῦ πατρός μου ἐν ἐμοὶ ἠθέλησε τοῦ γενέσθαι με εἰς βασιλέα ἐπὶ παντὶ ᾿Ισραήλ.
5 καὶ ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν υἱῶν μου (ὅτι πολλοὺς υἱοὺς ἔδωκέ μοι Κύριος) ἐξελέξατο ἐν Σαλωμὼν τῷ υἱῷ μου καθίσαι αὐτὸν ἐπὶ θρόνου βασιλείας Κυρίου ἐπὶ τὸν ᾿Ισραήλ·
6 καὶ εἶπέ μοι ὁ Θεός· Σαλωμὼν ὁ υἱός σου οἰκοδομήσει τὸν οἶκόν μου καὶ τὴν αὐλήν μου, ὅτι ᾑρέτικα ἐν αὐτῷ εἶναί μου υἱόν, κἀγὼ ἔσομαι αὐτῷ εἰς πατέρα
7 καὶ κατορθώσω τὴν βασιλείαν αὐτοῦ ἕως αἰῶνος, ἐὰν ἰσχύσῃ τοῦ φυλάξασθαι τὰς ἐντολάς μου καὶ τὰ κρίματά μου ὡς ἡ ἡμέρα αὕτη.
8 καὶ νῦν κατὰ πρόσωπον πάσης ἐκκλησίας Κυρίου καὶ ἐν ὠσὶ Θεοῦ ἡμῶν φυλάξασθε καὶ ζητήσατε πάσας τὰς ἐντολὰς Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ ἡμῶν, ἵνα κληρονομήσητε τὴν γῆν τὴν ἀγαθὴν καὶ κατακληρονομήσητε τοῖς υἱοῖς ὑμῶν μεθ᾿ ὑμᾶς ἕως αἰῶνος.
9 καὶ νῦν, Σαλωμὼν υἱέ μου, γνῶθι τὸν Θεὸν τῶν πατέρων σου καὶ δούλευε αὐτῷ ἐν καρδίᾳ τελείᾳ καὶ ψυχῇ θελούσῃ, ὅτι πάσας καρδίας ἐτάζει Κύριος καὶ πᾶν ἐνθύμημα γινώσκει· ἐὰν ζητήσῃς αὐτόν, εὑρεθήσεταί σοι, καὶ ἐὰν καταλείψῃς αὐτόν, καταλείψει σε εἰς τέλος.
10 ἰδὲ νῦν ὅτι Κύριος ᾑρέτικέ σε οἰκοδομῆσαι αὐτῷ οἶκον εἰς ἁγίασμα· ἴσχυε καὶ ποίει.
11 καὶ ἔδωκε Δαυὶδ Σαλωμὼν τῷ υἱῷ αὐτοῦ τὸ παράδειγμα τοῦ ναοῦ καὶ τῶν οἴκων αὐτοῦ καὶ τῶν ζακχῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ τῶν ὑπερῴων καὶ τῶν ἀποθηκῶν τῶν ἐσωτέρων καὶ τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ ἐξιλασμοῦ.
12 καὶ τὸ παράδειγμα, ὃ εἶχεν ἐν πνεύματι αὐτοῦ, τῶν αὐλῶν οἴκου Κυρίου καὶ πάντων τῶν παστοφορίων τῶν κύκλῳ τῶν εἰς τὰς ἀποθήκας οἴκου Κυρίου καὶ τῶν ἀποθηκῶν τῶν ἁγίων καὶ τῶν καταλυμάτων
13 καὶ τῶν ἐφημεριῶν τῶν ἱερέων καὶ τῶν Λευιτῶν εἰς πᾶσαν ἐργασίαν λειτουργίας οἴκου Κυρίου καὶ τῶν ἀποθηκῶν τῶν λειτουργησίμων σκευῶν τῆς λατρείας οἴκου Κυρίου,
14 καὶ τὸν σταθμὸν τῆς ὁλκῆς αὐτῶν τῶν τε χρυσῶν καὶ ἀργυρῶν,
15 λυχνιῶν τὴν ὁλκὴν ἔδωκεν αὐτῷ καὶ τῶν λύχνων.
16 ἔδωκεν αὐτῷ ὁμοίως τὸν σταθμὸν τῶν τραπεζῶν τῆς προθέσεως, ἑκάστης τραπέζης χρυσῆς καὶ ὡσαύτως τῶν ἀργυρῶν,
17 καὶ τῶν κρεαγρῶν καὶ σπονδείων καὶ τῶν φιαλῶν τῶν χρυσῶν καὶ τὸν σταθμὸν τῶν χρυσῶν καὶ ἀργυρῶν, καὶ θυΐσκων κεφφουρὲ ἑκάστου σταθμοῦ.
18 καὶ τὸν τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου τῶν θυμιαμάτων ἐκ χρυσίου δοκίμου σταθμὸν ὑπέδειξεν αὐτῷ καὶ τὸ παράδειγμα τοῦ ἅρματος τῶν Χερουβὶμ τῶν διαπεπετασμένων ταῖς πτέρυξι καὶ σκιαζόντων ἐπὶ τῆς κιβωτοῦ διαθήκης Κυρίου.
19 πάντα ἐν γραφῇ χειρὸς Κυρίου ἔδωκε Δαυὶδ Σαλωμὼν κατὰ τὴν περιγενηθεῖσαν αὐτῷ σύνεσιν τῆς κατεργασίας τοῦ παραδείγματος.
20 καὶ εἶπε Δαυὶδ Σαλωμὼν τῷ υἱῷ αὐτοῦ· ἴσχυε καὶ ἀνδρίζου καὶ ποίει, μὴ φοβοῦ μηδὲ πτοηθῇς, ὅτι Κύριος ὁ Θεός μου μετὰ σοῦ, οὐ ἀνήσει σε καὶ οὐ μή σε ἐγκαταλίπῃ ἕως τοῦ συντελέσαι σε πᾶσαν ἐργασίαν λειτουργίας οἴκου Κυρίου. καὶ ἰδοὺ τὸ παράδειγμα τοῦ ναοῦ καὶ τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ καὶ ζακχὼ αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ ὑπερῷα καὶ τὰς ἀποθήκας τὰς ἐσωτέρας καὶ τὸν οἶκον τοῦ ἱλασμοῦ καὶ τὸ παράδειγμα οἴκου Κυρίου.
21 καὶ ἰδοὺ αἱ ἐφημερίαι τῶν ἱερέων καὶ τῶν Λευιτῶν εἰς πᾶσαν λειτουργίαν οἴκου Κυρίου καὶ μετὰ σοῦ ἐν πάσῃ πραγματείᾳ καὶ πᾶς πρόθυμος ἐν σοφίᾳ κατὰ πᾶσαν τέχνην καὶ οἱ ἄρχοντες καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς εἰς πάντας τοὺς λόγους σου.
ΚΑΙ εἶπε Δαυὶδ ὁ βασιλεὺς πάσῃ τῇ ἐκκλησίᾳ· Σαλωμὼν ὁ υἱός μου, εἰς ὃν ᾑρέτικεν ἐν αὐτῷ Κύριος, νέος καὶ ἁπαλός, καὶ τὸ ἔργον μέγα, ὅτι οὐκ ἀνθρώπῳ, ἀλλ᾿ ἢ Κυρίῳ Θεῷ.
2 κατὰ πᾶσαν τὴν δύναμιν ἡτοίμακα εἰς οἶκον Θεοῦ μου χρυσίον, ἀργύριον, χαλκόν, σίδηρον, ξύλα, λίθους σοόμ, καὶ πληρώσεως λίθους πολυτελεῖς καὶ ποικίλους καὶ πάντα λίθον τίμιον καὶ Πάριον πολύν.
3 καὶ ἔτι ἐν τῷ εὐδοκῆσαί με ἐν οἴκῳ Θεοῦ μου ἔστι μοι ὃ περιπεποίημαι χρυσίον καὶ ἀργύριον, καὶ ἰδοὺ δέδωκα εἰς οἶκον Θεοῦ μου εἰς ὕψος, ἐκτὸς ὧν ἡτοίμακα εἰς τὸν οἶκον τῶν ἁγίων,
4 τρισχίλια τάλαντα χρυσίου τοῦ ἐκ Σουφὶρ καὶ ἑπτακισχίλια τάλαντα ἀργυρίου δοκίμου ἐξαλειφῆναι ἐν αὐτοῖς τοὺς τοίχους τοῦ ἱεροῦ,
5 εἰς τὸ χρυσίον τῷ χρυσίῳ καὶ εἰς τὸ ἀργύριον τῷ ἀργυρίῳ, καὶ εἰς πᾶν ἔργον διὰ χειρὸς τῶν τεχνιτῶν. καὶ τίς ὁ προθυμούμενος πληρῶσαι τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ σήμερον Κυρίῳ;
6 καὶ προεθυμήθησαν ἄρχοντες πατριῶν καὶ οἱ ἄρχοντες τῶν υἱῶν ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ οἱ χιλίαρχοι καὶ οἱ ἑκατόνταρχοι, καὶ οἱ προστάται τῶν ἔργων καὶ οἱ οἰκοδόμοι τοῦ βασιλέως
7 καὶ ἔδωκαν εἰς τὰ ἔργα τοῦ οἴκου Κυρίου χρυσίου τάλαντα πεντακισχίλια καὶ χρυσοῦς μυρίους καὶ ἀργυρίου ταλάντων δέκα χιλιάδας καὶ χαλκοῦ τάλαντα μύρια ὀκτακισχίλια καὶ σιδήρου ταλάντων χιλιάδας ἑκατόν.
8 καὶ οἷς εὑρέθη παρ᾿ αὐτοῖς λίθος, ἔδωκαν εἰς τὰς ἀποθήκας οἴκου Κυρίου διὰ χειρὸς ᾿Ιεϊὴλ τοῦ Γεδσωνί.
9 καὶ εὐφράνθη ὁ λαὸς ὑπὲρ τοῦ προθυμηθῆναι, ὅτι ἐν καρδίᾳ πλήρει προεθυμήθησαν τῷ Κυρίῳ, καὶ Δαυὶδ ὁ βασιλεὺς εὐφράνθη μεγάλως.
10 καὶ εὐλόγησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυὶδ τὸν Κύριον ἐνώπιον τῆς ἐκκλησίας λέγων· εὐλογητὸς εἶ, Κύριε ὁ Θεὸς ᾿Ισραήλ, ὁ πατὴρ ἡμῶν ἀπὸ τοῦ αἰῶνος καὶ ἕως τοῦ αἰῶνος.
11 σοί, Κύριε, ἡ μεγαλωσύνη καὶ ἡ δύναμις καὶ τὸ καύχημα καὶ ἡ νίκη καὶ ἡ ἰσχύς, ὅτι σὺ πάντων τῶν ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς δεσπόζεις, ἀπὸ προσώπου σου ταράσσεται πᾶς βασιλεὺς καὶ ἔθνος.
12 παρὰ σοῦ ὁ πλοῦτος καὶ ἡ δόξα, σὺ πάντων ἄρχεις, Κύριε, ὁ ἄρχων πάσης ἀρχῆς, καὶ ἐν χειρί σου ἰσχὺς καὶ δυναστεία, καὶ ἐν χειρί σου, παντοκράτωρ, μεγαλῦναι καὶ κατισχῦσαι τὰ πάντα.
13 καὶ νῦν, Κύριε, ἐξομολογούμεθά σοι καὶ αἰνοῦμεν τὸ ὄνομα τῆς καυχήσεώς σου.
14 καὶ τίς εἰμι ἐγὼ καὶ τίς ὁ λαός μου, ὅτι ἰσχύσαμεν προθυμηθῆναί σοι κατὰ ταῦτα; ὅτι σὰ τὰ πάντα, καὶ ἐκ τῶν σῶν δεδώκαμέν σοι.
15 ὅτι πάροικοί ἐσμεν ἐναντίον σου καὶ παροικοῦντες ὡς πάντες οἱ πατέρες ἡμῶν· ὡς σκιὰ αἱ ἡμέραι ἡμῶν ἐπὶ γῆς, καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ὑπομονή.
16 Κύριε ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν, πρὸς πᾶν τὸ πλῆθος τοῦτο, ὃ ἡτοίμακα οἰκοδομηθῆναι οἶκον τῷ ὀνόματι τῷ ἁγίῳ σου, ἐκ χειρός σού ἐστι, καὶ σοὶ τὰ πάντα.
17 καὶ ἔγνων, Κύριε, ὅτι σὺ εἶ ὁ ἐτάζων καρδίας καὶ δικαιοσύνην ἀγαπᾶς· ἐν ἁπλότητι καρδίας προεθυμήθην ταῦτα πάντα, καὶ νῦν τὸν λαόν σου τὸν εὑρεθέντα ὧδε εἶδον ἐν εὐφροσύνῃ προθυμηθέντα σοι.
18 Κύριε ὁ Θεὸς ῾Αβραὰμ καὶ ᾿Ισαὰκ καὶ ᾿Ισραήλ, τῶν πατέρων ἡμῶν, φύλαξον ταῦτα ἐν διανοίᾳ καρδίας λαοῦ σου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα καὶ κατεύθυνον τὰς καρδίας αὐτῶν πρός σε.
19 καὶ Σαλωμὼν τῷ υἱῷ μου δὸς καρδίαν ἀγαθὴν ποιεῖν τὰς ἐντολάς σου καὶ τὰ μαρτύριά σου καὶ τὰ προστάγματά σου καὶ τοῦ ἐπὶ τέλους ἀγαγεῖν τὴν κατασκευὴν τοῦ οἴκου σου.
20 καὶ εἶπε Δαυὶδ πάσῃ τῇ ἐκκλησίᾳ· εὐλογήσατε Κύριον τὸν Θεὸν ἡμῶν· καὶ εὐλόγησε πᾶσα ἡ ἐκκλησία Κύριον τὸν Θεὸν τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν, καὶ κάμψαντες τὰ γόνατα προσεκύνησαν τῷ Κυρίῳ, καὶ τῷ βασιλεῖ.
21 καὶ ἔθυσε Δαυὶδ τῷ Κυρίῳ θυσίας καὶ ἀνήνεγκεν ὁλοκαυτώματα τῷ Θεῷ τῇ ἐπαύριον τῆς πρώτης ἡμέρας μόσχους χιλίους, κριοὺς χιλίους, ἄρνας χιλίους καὶ τὰς σπονδὰς αὐτῶν καὶ θυσίας εἰς πλῆθος παντὶ τῷ ᾿Ισραήλ.
22 καὶ ἔφαγον καὶ ἔπιον ἐναντίον τοῦ Κυρίου ἐν ἐκείνῃ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ μετὰ χαρᾶς καὶ ἐβασίλευσαν ἐκ δευτέρου τὸν Σαλωμὼν υἱὸν Δαυὶδ καὶ ἔχρισαν αὐτὸν τῷ Κυρίῳ εἰς βασιλέα καὶ Σαδὼκ εἰς ἱερωσύνην.
23 καὶ ἐκάθισε Σαλωμὼν ἐπὶ θρόνου Δαυὶδ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ εὐδοκήθη, καὶ ὑπήκουσαν αὐτοῦ πᾶς ᾿Ισραήλ·
24 οἱ ἄρχοντες καὶ οἱ δυνάσται καὶ πάντες υἱοὶ Δαυὶδ τοῦ βασιλέως τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ὑπετάγησαν αὐτῷ.
25 καὶ ἐμεγάλυνε Κύριος τὸν Σαλωμὼν ἐπάνωθεν παντὸς ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτῷ δόξαν βασιλέως, ὃ οὐκ ἐγένετο ἐπὶ παντὸς βασιλέως ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ.
26 καὶ Δαυὶδ υἱὸς ᾿Ιεσσαὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ἐπὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ
27 ἔτη τεσσαράκοντα, ἐν Χεβρὼν ἔτη ἑπτὰ καὶ ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ ἔτη τριακοντατρία.
28 καὶ ἐτελεύτησεν ἐν γήρᾳ καλῷ, πλήρης ἡμερῶν, πλούτῳ καὶ δόξῃ, καὶ ἐβασίλευσε Σαλωμὼν υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾿ αὐτοῦ.
29 οἱ δὲ λοιποὶ λόγοι τοῦ βασιλέως Δαυίδ, οἱ πρότεροι καὶ οἱ ὕστεροι, γεγραμμένοι εἰσὶν ἐν λόγοις Σαμουὴλ τοῦ βλέποντος καὶ ἐπὶ λόγων Νάθαν τοῦ προφήτου καὶ ἐπὶ λόγων Γὰδ τοῦ βλέποντος
30 περὶ πάσης τῆς βασιλείας αὐτοῦ καὶ τῆς δυναστείας αὐτοῦ, καὶ οἱ καιροί, οἳ ἐγένοντο ἐπ᾿ αὐτῷ, καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ἐπὶ πάσας βασιλείας τῆς γῆς.
And the devil stood up against Israel, and moved David to number Israel.
2 And king David said to Joab and to the captains of the forces, Go, number Israel from Bersabee even to Dan, and bring me the account, and I shall know their number.
3 And Joab said, May the Lord add to his people, a hundred-fold as many as they are, and let the eyes of my lord the king see it: all are the servants of my lord. Why does my lord seek this thing? do it not, lest it become a sin to Israel.
4 Nevertheless the king’s word prevailed against Joab; and Joab went out and passed through all Israel, and came to Jerusalem.
5 And Joab gave the number of the mustering of the people to David: and all Israel was a million and a hundred thousand men that drew sword: and the sons of Juda were four hundred and seventy thousand men that drew sword.
6 But he numbered not Levi and Benjamin among them; for the word of the king was painful to Joab.
7 And there was evil in the sight of the Lord respecting this thing; and he smote Israel.
8 And David said to God, I have sinned exceedingly, in that I have done this thing: and now, I pray thee, remove the sin of thy servant; for I have been exceedingly foolish.
9 And the Lord spoke to Gad the seer, saying,
10 Go and speak to David, saying, Thus saith the Lord, I bring three things upon thee: choose one of them for thyself, and I will do it to thee.
11 And Gad came to David, and said to him, Thus saith the Lord, Choose for thyself,
12 either three years of famine, or that thou shouldest flee three months from the face of thine enemies, and the sword of thine enemies shall be employed to destroy thee, or that the sword of the Lord and pestilence should be three days in the land, and the angel of the Lord shall be destroying in all the inheritance of Israel. And now consider what I shall answer to him that sent the message.
13 And David said to Gad, They are very hard for me, even all the three: let me fall now into the hands of the Lord, for his mercies are very abundant, and let me not fall by any means into the hands of man.
14 So the Lord brought pestilence upon Israel: and there fell of Israel seventy thousand men.
15 And God sent an angel to Jerusalem to destroy it: and as he was destroying, the Lord saw, and repented for the evil, and said to the angel that was destroying, Let it suffice thee; withhold thine hand. And the angel of the Lord stood by the threshing-floor of Orna the Jebusite.
16 And David lifted up his eyes, and saw the angel of the Lord, standing between the earth and the heaven, and his sword drawn in his hand, stretched out over Jerusalem: and David and the elders clothed in sackcloth, fell upon their faces.
17 And David said to God, Was it not I that gave orders to number the people? and I am the guilty one; I have greatly sinned: but these sheep, what have they done? O Lord God, let thy hand be upon me, and upon my father’s house, and not on thy people for destruction, O Lord!
18 And the angel of the Lord told Gad to tell David, that he should go up to erect an altar to the Lord, in the threshing-floor of Orna the Jebusite.
19 And David went up according to the word of Gad, which he spoke in the name of the Lord.
20 And Orna turned and saw the king; and he hid himself and his four sons with him. Now Orna was threshing wheat.
21 And David came to Orna; and Orna came forth from the threshing-floor, and did obeisance to David with his face to the ground.
22 And David said to Orna, Give me thy place of the threshing-floor, and I will build upon it an altar to the Lord: give it me for its worth in money, and the plague shall cease from among the people.
23 And Orna said to David, Take it to thyself, and let my lord the king do what is right in his eyes: see, I have given the calves for a whole-burnt-offering, and the plough for wood, and the corn for a meat-offering; I have given all.
24 And king David said to Orna, Nay; for I will surely buy it for its worth in money: for I will not take thy property for the Lord, to offer a whole-burnt-offering to the Lord without cost to myself.
25 And David gave to Orna for his place six hundred shekels of gold by weight.
26 And David built there an altar to the Lord, and offered up whole-burnt-offerings and peace-offerings: and he cried to the Lord, and he answered him by fire out of heaven on the altar of whole-burnt-offerings, and it consumed the whole-burnt-offering.
27 And the Lord spoke to the angel; and he put up the sword into its sheath.
28 At that time when David saw that the Lord answered him in the threshing-floor of Orna the Jebusite, he also sacrificed there.
29 And the tabernacle of the Lord which Moses made in the wilderness, and the altar of whole-burnt-offerings, were at that time in the high place at Gabaon.
30 And David could not go before it to enquire of God; for he hasted not because of the sword of the angel of the Lord.
And David said, This is the house of the Lord God, and this is the altar for whole-burnt-offering for Israel.
2 And David gave orders to gather all the strangers that were in the land of Israel; and he appointed stone-hewers to hew polished stones to build the house to God.
3 And David prepared much iron for the nails of the doors and the gate; the hinges also and brass in abundance, there was no weighing of it.
4 And cedar threes without number: for the Sidonians and the Tyrians brought cedar trees in abundance to David.
5 And David said, My son Solomon is a tender child, and the house for me to build to the Lord is for superior magnificence for a name and for a glory through all the earth: I will make preparation for it. And David prepared abundantly before his death.
6 And he called Solomon his son, and commanded him to build the house for the Lord God of Israel.
7 And David said to Solomon, My child, it was in my heart to build a house to the name of the Lord God.
8 But the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Thou hast shed blood abundantly, and hast carried on great wars: thou shalt not build a house to my name, because thou hast shed much blood upon the earth before me.
9 Behold, a son shall be born to thee, he shall be a man of rest; and I will give him rest from all his enemies round about: for his name shall be Solomon, and I will give peace and quietness to Israel in his days.
10 He shall build a house to my name; and he shall be a son to me, and I will be a father to him; and I will establish the throne of his kingdom in Israel for ever.
11 And now, my son, the Lord shall be with thee, and prosper thee; and thou shalt build a house to the Lord thy God, as he spoke concerning thee.
12 Only may the Lord give thee wisdom and prudence, and strengthen thee over Israel, both to keep and to do the law of the Lord thy God.
13 Then will he prosper thee, if thou take heed to do the commandments and judgments which the Lord commanded Moses for Israel: be courageous and strong; fear not, nor be terrified.
14 And, behold, I according to my poverty have prepared for the house of the Lord a hundred thousand talents of gold, and a million talents of silver, and brass and iron without measure; for it is abundant; and I have prepared timber and stones; and do thou add to these.
15 And of them that are with thee do thou add to the multitude of workmen; let there be artificers and masons, and carpenters, and every skilful workman in every work;
16 in gold and silver, brass and iron, of which there is no number. Arise and do, and the Lord be with thee.
17 And David charged all the chief men of Israel to help Solomon his son, saying,
18 Is not the Lord with you? and he has given you rest round about, for he has given into your hands the inhabitants of the land; and the land is subdued before the Lord, and before his people.
19 Now set your hearts and souls to seek after the Lord your God: and rise, and build a sanctuary to your God to carry in the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and the holy vessels of God, into the house that is to be built to the name of the Lord.
And David was old and full of days; and he made Solomon his son king over Israel in his stead.
2 And he assembled all the chief men of Israel, and the priests, and the Levites.
3 And the Levites numbered themselves from thirty years old and upward; and their number by their polls amounted to thirty and eight thousand men.
4 Of the overseers over the works of the house of the Lord there were twenty-four thousand, and there were six thousand scribes and judges;
5 and four thousand door-keepers, and four thousand to praise the Lord with instruments which he made to praise the Lord.
6 And David divided them into daily courses, for the sons of Levi, for Gedson, Caath, and Merari.
7 And for the family of Gedson, Edan, and Semei.
8 The sons of Edan were Jeiel, the chief, and Zethan, and Joel, three.
9 The sons of Semei; Salomith, Jeiel, and Dan, three: these were the chiefs of the families of Edan.
10 And to the sons of Semei, Jeth, and Ziza, and Joas, and Beria: these were the four sons of Semei.
11 And Jeth was the chief, and Ziza the second: and Joas and Beria did not multiply sons, and they became only one reckoning according to the house of their father.
12 The sons of Caath; Ambram, Isaar, Chebron, Oziel, four.
13 The sons of Ambram; Aaron and Moses: and Aaron was appointed for the consecration of the most holy things, he and his sons for ever, to burn incense before the Lord, to minister and bless in his name for ever.
14 And as for Moses the man of God, his sons were reckoned to the tribe of Levi.
15 The sons of Moses; Gersam, and Eliezer.
16 The sons of Gersam; Subael the chief.
17 And the sons of Eliezer were, Rabia the chief: and Eliezer had no other sons; but the sons of Rabia were very greatly multiplied.
18 The sons of Isaar; Salomoth the chief.
19 The sons of Chebron; Jeria the chief, Amaria the second, Jeziel the third, Jekemias the fourth.
20 The sons of Oziel; Micha the chief, and Isia the second.
21 The sons of Merari; Mooli, and Musi: the sons of Mooli; Eleazar, and Kis.
22 And Eleazar died, and he had no sons, but daughters: and the sons of Kis, their brethren, took them.
23 The sons of Musi; Mooli, and Eder, and Jarimoth, three.
24 These are the sons of Levi according to the houses of their fathers; chiefs of their families according to their numbering, according to the number of their names, according to their polls, doing the works of service of the house of the Lord, from twenty years old and upward.
25 For David said, The Lord God of Israel has given rest to his people, and has taken up his abode in Jerusalem for ever.
26 And the Levites bore not the tabernacle, and all the vessels of it for its service.
27 For by the last words of David was the number of the Levites taken from twenty years old and upward.
28 For he appointed them to wait on Aaron, to minister in the house of the Lord, over the courts, and over the chambers, and over the purification of all the holy things, and over the works of the service of the house of God;
29 and for the shew-bread, and for the fine flour of the meat-offering, and for the unleavened cakes, and for the fried cake, and for the dough, and for every measure;
30 and to stand in the morning to praise and give thanks to the Lord, and so in the evening;
31 and to be over all the whole-burnt-offerings that were offered up to the Lord on the sabbaths, and at the new moons, and at the feasts, by number, according to the order given to them, continually before the Lord.
32 And they are to keep the charge of the tabernacle of witness, and the charge of the holy place, and the charges of the sons of Aaron their brethren, to minister in the house of the Lord.
And they number the sons of Aaron in their division, Nadab, and Abiud, and Eleazar, and Ithamar.
2 And Nadab and Abiud died before their father, and they had no sons: so Eleazar and Ithamar the sons of Aaron ministered as priests.
3 And David distributed them, even Sadoc of the sons of Eleazar, and Achimelech of the sons of Ithamar, according to their numbering, according to their service, according to the houses of their fathers.
4 And there were found among the sons of Eleazar more chiefs of the mighty ones, than of the sons of Ithamar: and he divided them, sixteen heads of families to the sons of Eleazar, eight according to their families to the sons of Ithamar.
5 And he divided them according to their lots, one with the other; for there were those who had charge of the holy things, and those who had charge of the house of the Lord among the sons of Eleazar, and among the sons of Ithamar.
6 And Samaias the son of Nathanael, the scribe, of the family of Levi, wrote them down before the king, and the princes, and Sadoc the priest, and Achimelech the son of Abiathar were present; and the heads of the families of the priests and the Levites, each of a household were assigned one to Eleazar, and one to Ithamar.
7 And the first lot came out to Joarim, the second to Jedia,
8 the third to Charib, the fourth to Seorim,
9 the fifth to Melchias, the sixth to Meiamin,
10 the seventh to Cos, the eighth to Abia,

16 the nineteenth to Phetaea, the twentieth to Ezekel,
17 the twenty-first to Achim, the twenty-second to Gamul,
18 the twenty-third to Adallai, the twenty-fourth to Maasai.
19 This is their numbering according to their service to go into the house of the Lord, according to their appointment by the hand of Aaron their father, as the Lord God of Israel commanded.
20 And for the sons of Levi that were left, even for the sons of Ambram, Sobael: for the sons of Sobael, Jedia.
21 For Raabia, the chief was Isaari,
22 and for Isaari, Salomoth: for the sons of Salomoth, Jath.
23 The sons of Ecdiu; Amadia the second, Jaziel the third, Jecmoam the fourth.
24 For the sons of Oziel, Micha: the sons of Micha; Samer.
25 The brother of Micha; Isia, the son of Isia; Zacharia.
26 The sons of Merari, Mooli, and Musi: the sons of Ozia, the sond of Bonni.
27 That is, the sons of Merari by Ozia, —his sons were Isoam, and Sacchur, and Abai.
28 To Mooli were born Eleazar, and Ithamar; and Eleazar died, and had no sons.
29 For Kis; the sons of Kis; Jerameel.
30 And the sons of Musi; Mooli, and Eder, and Jerimoth. These were the sons of the Levites according to the houses of their families.
31 And they also received lots as their brethren the sons of Aaron before the king; Sadoc also, and Achimelech, and the chiefs of the families of the priests and of the Levites, principal heads of families, even as their younger brethren.
And king David and the captains of the host appointed to their services the sons of Asaph, and of Æman, and of Idithun, prophesiers with harps, and lutes, and cymbals: and their number was according to their polls serving in their ministrations.
2 The sons of Asaph; Sacchur, Joseph, and Nathanias, and Erael: the sons of Asaph were next the king.
3 To Idithun were reckoned the sons of Idithun, Godolias, and Suri, and Iseas, and Asabias, and Matthathias, six after their father Idithun, sounding loudly on the harp thanksgiving and praise to the Lord.
4 To Æman were reckoned the sons of Æman, Bukias, and Matthanias, and Oziel, and Subael, and Jerimoth, and Ananias, and Anan, and Heliatha, and Godollathi, and Rometthiezer, and Jesbasaca, and Mallithi, and Otheri, and Meazoth.
5 All these were the sons of Æman the king’s chief player in the praises of God, to lift up the horn. And God gave to Æman fourteen sons, and three daughters.
6 All these sang hymns with their father in the house of God, with cymbals, and lutes, and harps, for the service of the house of God, near the king, and Asaph, and Idithun, and Æman.
7 And the number of them after their brethren, those instructed to sing to God, every one that understood singing was two hundred and eighty-eight.
8 And they also cast lots for the daily courses, for the great and the small of them, of the perfect ones and the learners.

2 And Mosellemia’s first-born son was Zacharias, the second Jadiel, the third Zabadia, the fourth Jenuel,

4 And to Abdedom there were born sons, Samaias the first-born, Jozabath the second, Joath the third, Sachar the fourth, Nathanael the fifth,

8 All these were of the sons of Abdedom, they and their sons and their brethren, doing mightily in service: in all sixty-two born to Abdedom.
9 And Mosellemia had eighteen sons and brethren, mighty men.

11 Chelcias the second, Tablai the third, Zacharias the fourth: all these were the sons and brethren of Osa, thirteen.
12 To these were assigned the divisions of the gates, to the chiefs of the mighty men the daily courses, even their brethren, to minister in the house of the Lord.
13 And they cast lots for the small as well as for the great, for the several gates, according to their families.
14 And the lot of the east gates fell to Selemias, and Zacharias: the sons of Soaz cast lots for Melchias, and the lot came out northward.
15 To Abdedom they gave by lot the south, opposite the house of Esephim.
16 They gave the lot for the second to Osa westward, after the gate of the chamber by the ascent, watch against watch.
17 Eastward were six watchmen in the day; northward four by the day; southward four by the day; and two at the Esephim,
18 to relieve guard, and four by the west, and two to relieve guard at the pathway.
19 These are the divisions of the porters for the sons of Core, and to the sons of Merari.
20 And the Levites their brethren were over the treasures of the house of the Lord, and over the treasures of the hallowed things.
21 These were the sons of Ladan, the sons of the Gersonite: to Ladan belonged the heads of the families: the son of Ladan the Gersonite was Jeiel.
22 The sons of Jeiel were Zethom, and Joel; brethren who were over the treasures of the house of the Lord.
23 To Ambram and Issaar belonged Chebron, and Oziel.
24 And Subael the son of Gersam, the son of Moses, was over the treasures.
25 And Rabias was son to his brother Eliezer, and so was Josias, and Joram, and Zechri, and Salomoth.
26 This Salomoth and his brethren were over all the sacred treasures, which David the king and the heads of families consecrated, and the captains of thousands and captains of hundreds, and princes of the host,
27 things which he took out of cities and from the spoils, and consecrated some of them, so that the building of the house of God should not want supplies;
28 and over all the holy things of God dedicated by Samuel the prophet, and Saul the son of Kis, and Abenner the son of Ner, and Joab the son of Saruia, whatsoever they sanctified was by the hand of Salomoth and his brethren.
29 For the Issaarites, Chonenia, and his sons were over the outward ministration over Israel, to record and to judge.
30 For the Chebronites, Asabias and his brethren, a thousand and seven hundred mighty men, were over the charge of Israel beyond Jordan westward, for all the service of the Lord and work of the king.
31 Of the family of Chebron Urias was chief, even of the Chebronites according to their generations, according to their families. In the fortieth year of his reign they were numbered, and there were found mighty men among them in Jazer of Galaad.
32 And his brethren were two thousand seven hundred mighty men, chiefs of their families, and king David set them over the Rubenites, and the Gaddites, and the half-tribe of Manasse, for every ordinance of the Lord, and business of the king.
Now the sons of Israel according to their number, heads of families, captains of thousands and captains of hundreds, and scribes ministering to the king, and for every affair of the king according to their divisions, for every ordinance of coming in and going out monthly, for all the months of the year, one division of them was twenty-four thousand.

23 But David took not their number from twenty years old and under: because the Lord said that he would multiply Israel as the stars of the heaven.
24 And Joab the son of Saruia began to number the people, and did not finish the work, for there was hereupon wrath on Israel; and the number was not recorded in the book of the chronicles of king David.
25 And over the king’s treasures was Asmoth the son of Odiel; and over the treasures in the country, and in the towns, and in the villages, and in the towers, was Jonathan the son of Ozia.
26 And over the husbandmen who tilled the ground was Esdri the son of Chelub.
27 And over the fields was Semei of Rael; and over the treasures of wine in the fields was Zabdi the son of Sephni.
28 And over the oliveyards, and over the sycamores in the plain country was Ballanan the Gedorite; and over the stores of oil was Joas.
29 And over the oxen pasturing in Saron was Satrai the Saronite; and over the oxen in the valleys was Sophat the son of Adli.
30 And over the camels was Abias the Ismaelite; and over the asses was Jadias of Merathon.
31 And over the sheep was Jaziz the Agarite. All these were superintendents of the substance of king David.
32 And Jonathan, David’s uncle by the father’s side, was a counsellor, a wise man: and Jeel the son of Achami was with the king’s sons.
33 Achitophel was the king’s counsellor: and Chusi the chief friend of the king.
34 And after this Achitophel Jodae the son of Banaeas came next, and Abiathar: and Joab was the king’s commander-in-chief.
And David assembled all the chief men of Israel, the chief of the judges, and all the chief men of the courses of attendance on the person of the king, and the captains of thousands and hundreds, and the treasurers, and the lords of his substance, and of all the king’s property, and of his sons, together with the eunuchs, and the mighty men, and the warriors of the army, at Jerusalem.
2 And David stood in the midst of the assembly, and said, Hear me, my brethren, and my people: it was in my heart to build a house of rest for the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and a place for the feet of our Lord, and I prepared materials suitable for the building:
3 but God said, Thou shalt not build me a house to call my name upon it, for thou art a man of war, and hast shed blood.
4 Yet the Lord God of Israel chose me out of the whole house of my father to be king over Israel for ever; and he chose Juda as the kingly house, and out of the house of Juda he chose the house of my father; and among the sons of my father he preferred me, that I should be king over all Israel.
5 And of all my sons, (for the Lord has given me many sons,) he has chosen Solomon my son, to set him on the throne of the kingdom of the Lord over Israel.
6 And God said to me, Solomon thy son shall build my house and my court: for I have chosen him to be my son, and I will be to him a father.
7 And I will establish his kingdom for ever, if he continue to keep my commandments, and my judgments, as at this day.
8 And now I charge you before the whole assembly of the Lord, and in the audience of our God, keep and seek all the commandments of the Lord our God, that ye may inherit the good land, and leave it for your sons to inherit after you for ever.
9 And now, my son Solomon, know the God of thy fathers, and serve him with a perfect heart and willing soul: for the Lord searches all hearts, and knows every thought: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou shouldest forsake him, he will forsake thee for ever.
10 See now, for the Lord has chosen thee to build him a house for a sanctuary, be strong and do it.
11 And David gave Solomon his son the plan of the temple, and its buildings, and its treasuries, and its upper chambers, and the inner store-rooms, and the place of the atonement,
12 and the plan which he had in his mind of the courts of the house of the Lord, and of all the chambers round about, designed for the treasuries of the house of God, and of the treasuries of the holy things, and of the chambers for resting:
13 and the plan of the courses of the priests and Levites, for all the work of the service of the house of the Lord, and of the stores of vessels for ministration of the service of the house of the Lord.
14 And he gave him the account of their weight, both of gold and silver vessels.
15 He gave him the weight of the candlesticks, and of the lamps.
16 He gave him likewise the weight of the tables of shewbread, of each table of gold, and likewise of the tables of silver:
17 also of the flesh-hooks, and vessels for drink-offering, and golden bowls: and the weight of the gold and silver articles, and censers, and bowls, according to the weight of each.
18 And he shewed him the weight of the utensils of the altar of incense, which was of pure gold, and the plan of the chariot of the cherubs that spread out their wings, and overshadowed the ark of the covenant of the Lord.
19 David gave all to Solomon in the Lord’s handwriting, according to the knowledge given him of the work of the pattern.
20 And David said to Solomon his son, Be strong, and play the man, and do: fear not, neither be terrified; for the Lord my God is with thee; he will not forsake thee, and will not fail thee, until thou hast finished all the work of the service of the house of the Lord. And behold the pattern of the temple, even his house, and its treasury, and the upper chambers, and the inner store-rooms, and the place of propitiation, and the plan of the house of the Lord.
21 And see, here are the courses of the priests and Levites for all the service of the house of the Lord, and there shall be with thee men for every workmanship, and every one of ready skill in every art: also the chief men and all the people, ready for all thy commands.
And David the king said to all the congregation, Solomon my son, whom the Lord has chosen, is young and tender, and the work is great; for it is not for man, but for the Lord God.
2 I have prepared according to all my might for the house of my God gold, silver, brass, iron, wood, onyx stones, and costly and variegated stones for setting, and every precious stone, and much Parian marble.
3 And still farther, because I took pleasure in the house of my God, I have gold and silver which I have procured for myself, and, behold, I have given them to the house of my God over and above, beyond what I have prepared for the holy house.
4 Three thousand talents of gold of Suphir, and seven thousand talents of fine silver, for the overlaying of the walls of the sanctuary:
5 for thee to use the gold for things of gold, and the silver for things of silver, and for every work by the hand of the artificers. And who is willing to dedicate himself in work this day for the Lord?
6 Then the heads of families, and the princes of the children of Israel, and the captains of thousands and captains of hundreds, and the overseers of the works, and the king’s builders, offered willingly.
7 And they gave for the works of the house of the Lord five thousand talents of gold, and ten thousand gold pieces, and ten thousand talents of silver, and eighteen thousand talents of brass, and a hundred thousand talents of iron.
8 And they who had precious stone, gave it into the treasuries of the house of the Lord by the hand of Jeiel the Gedsonite.
9 And the people rejoiced because of the willingness, for they offered willingly to the Lord with a full heart: and king David rejoiced greatly.
10 And king David blessed the Lord before the congregation, saying, Blessed art thou, O Lord God of Israel, our Father, from everlasting and to everlasting.
11 Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the might: for thou art Lord of all things that are in heaven and upon the earth: before thy face every king and nation is troubled.
12 From thee come wealth and glory: thou, O Lord, rulest over all, the Lord of all dominion, and in thy hand is strength and rule; and thou art almighty with thy hand to increase and establish all things.
13 And now, Lord, we give thanks to thee, and praise thy glorious name.
14 But who am I, and what is my people, that we have been able to be thus forward in offering to thee? for all things are thine, and of thine own have we given thee,
15 for we are strangers before thee, and sojourners, as all our fathers were: our days upon the earth are as a shadow, and there is no remaining.
16 O Lord our God, as for all this abundance which I have prepared that a house should be built to thy holy name, it is of thy hand, and all is thine.
17 And I know, Lord, that thou art he that searches the hearts, and thou lovest righteousness. I have willingly offered all these things in simplicity of heart; and now I have seen with joy thy people here present, willingly offering to thee.
18 O Lord God of Abraham, and Isaac, and Israel, our fathers, preserve these things in the thought of the heart of thy people for ever, and direct their hearts to thee.
19 And to Solomon my son give a good heart, to perform thy commandments, and to observe thy testimonies, and thine ordinances, and to accomplish the building of thy house.
20 And David said to the whole congregation, Bless ye the Lord our God. And all the congregation blessed the Lord God of their fathers, and they bowed the knee and worshipped the Lord, and did obeisance to the king.
21 And David sacrificed to the Lord, and offered up whole-burnt-offerings to the Lord on the morrow after the first day, a thousand calves, a thousand rams, a thousand lambs, and their drink-offerings, and sacrifices in abundance for all Israel.
22 And they ate and drank joyfully that day before the Lord: and they made Solomon the son of David king a second time, and anointed him king before the Lord, and Sadoc to the priesthood.
23 And Solomon sat upon the throne of his father David, and was highly honoured; and all Israel obeyed him.
24 The princes, and the mighty men, and all the sons of king David his father, were subject to him.
25 And the Lord magnified Solomon over all Israel, and gave him royal glory, such as was not upon any king before him.
26 And David the son of Jessae reigned over Israel
27 forty years; seven years in Chebron, and thirty-three years in Jerusalem.
28 And he died in a good old age, full of days, in wealth, and glory: and Solomon his son reigned in his stead.
29 And the rest of the acts of David, the former and the latter, are written in the history of Samuel the seer, and in the history of Nathan the prophet, and in the history of Gad the seer,
30 concerning all his reign, and his power, and the
times which went over him, and over Israel, and over all the kingdoms of
