2 Chronicles 7


1  Now when Solomon8010 had made an end3615 of praying,6419 the fire784 came down3381 from heaven,4480 8064 and consumed398 the burnt offering5930 and the sacrifices;2077 and the glory3519 of the LORD3068 filled4390 853 the house.1004

2  And the priests3548 could3201 not3808 enter935 into413 the house1004 of the LORD,3068 because3588 the glory3519 of the LORD3068 had filled4390 853 the LORD's3068 house.1004

3  And when all3605 the children1121 of Israel3478 saw7200 how the fire784 came down,3381 and the glory3519 of the LORD3068 upon5921 the house,1004 they bowed3766 themselves with their faces639 to the ground776 upon5921 the pavement,7531 and worshiped,7812 and praised3034 the LORD,3068 saying, For3588 he is good;2896 for3588 his mercy2617 endureth forever.5769

4  Then the king4428 and all3605 the people5971 offered2076 sacrifices2077 before6440 the LORD.3068

5  And king4428 Solomon8010 offered2076 853 a sacrifice2077 of twenty6242 and two8147 thousand505 oxen,1241 and a hundred3967 and twenty6242 thousand505 sheep:6629 so the king4428 and all3605 the people5971 dedicated2596 853 the house1004 of God.430

6  And the priests3548 waited5975 on5921 their offices:4931 the Levites3881 also with instruments3627 of music7892 of the LORD,3068 which834 David1732 the king4428 had made6213 to praise3034 the LORD,3068 because3588 his mercy2617 endureth forever,5769 when David1732 praised1984 by their ministry;3027 and the priests3548 sounded2690 trumpets before5048 them, and all3605 Israel3478 stood.5975

7  Moreover Solomon8010 hallowed6942 853 the middle8432 of the court2691 that834 was before6440 the house1004 of the LORD:3068 for3588 there8033 he offered6213 burnt offerings,5930 and the fat2459 of the peace offerings,8002 because3588 the brazen5178 altar4196 which834 Solomon8010 had made6213 was not able3201 3808 to receive3557 853 the burnt offerings,5930 and the meat offerings,4503 and the fat.2459

8  Also at the same1931 time6256 Solomon8010 kept6213 853 the feast2282 seven7651 days,3117 and all3605 Israel3478 with5973 him, a very3966 great1419 congregation,6951 from the entering in4480 935 of Hamath2574 unto5704 the river5158 of Egypt.4714

9  And in the eighth8066 day3117 they made6213 a solemn assembly:6116 for3588 they kept6213 the dedication2598 of the altar4196 seven7651 days,3117 and the feast2282 seven7651 days.3117

10  And on the three7969 and twentieth6242 day3117 of the seventh7637 month2320 he sent7971 853 the people5971 away into their tents,168 glad8056 and merry2896 in heart3820 for5921 the goodness2896 that834 the LORD3068 had showed6213 unto David,1732 and to Solomon,8010 and to Israel3478 his people.5971

11  Thus Solomon8010 finished3615 853 the house1004 of the LORD,3068 and the king's4428 house:1004 and all3605 that came935 into5921 Solomon's8010 heart3820 to make6213 in the house1004 of the LORD,3068 and in his own house,1004 he prosperously effected.6743

12  And the LORD3068 appeared7200 to413 Solomon8010 by night,3915 and said559 unto him, I have heard8085 853 thy prayer,8605 and have chosen977 this2088 place4725 to myself for a house1004 of sacrifice.2077

13  If2005 I shut up6113 heaven8064 that there be1961 no3808 rain,4306 or if2005 I command6680 5921 the locusts2284 to devour398 the land,776 or if518 I send7971 pestilence1698 among my people;5971

14  If my people,5971 which834 are called7121 5921 by my name,8034 shall humble themselves,3665 and pray,6419 and seek1245 my face,6440 and turn7725 from their wicked7451 ways;4480 1870 then will I589 hear8085 from4480 heaven,8064 and will forgive5545 their sin,2403 and will heal7495 853 their land.776

15  Now6258 mine eyes5869 shall be1961 open,6605 and mine ears241 attent7183 unto the prayer8605 that is made in this2088 place.4725

16  For now6258 have I chosen977 and sanctified6942 853 this2088 house,1004 that my name8034 may be1961 there8033 forever:5704 5769 and mine eyes5869 and mine heart3820 shall be1961 there8033 perpetually.3605 3117

17  And as for thee,859 if518 thou wilt walk1980 before6440 me, as834 David1732 thy father1 walked,1980 and do6213 according to all3605 that834 I have commanded6680 thee, and shalt observe8104 my statutes2706 and my judgments;4941

18  Then will I establish6965 853 the throne3678 of thy kingdom,4438 according as834 I have covenanted3772 with David1732 thy father,1 saying,559 There shall not3808 fail3772 thee a man376 to be ruler4910 in Israel.3478

19  But if518 ye859 turn away,7725 and forsake5800 my statutes2708 and my commandments,4687 which834 I have set5414 before6440 you, and shall go1980 and serve5647 other312 gods,430 and worship7812 them;

20  Then will I pluck them up by the roots5428 out of4480 5921 my land127 which834 I have given5414 them; and this2088 house,1004 which834 I have sanctified6942 for my name,8034 will I cast out7993 of4480 5921 my sight,6440 and will make5414 it to be a proverb4912 and a byword8148 among all3605 nations.5971

21  And this2088 house,1004 which834 is1961 high,5945 shall be an astonishment8074 to every one3605 that passeth5674 by5921 it; so that he shall say,559 Why4100 hath the LORD3068 done6213 thus3602 unto this2063 land,776 and unto this2088 house?1004

22  And it shall be answered,559 Because5921 834 they forsook5800 853 the LORD3068 God430 of their fathers,1 which834 brought them forth3318 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt,4714 and laid hold2388 on other312 gods,430 and worshiped7812 them, and served5647 them: therefore5921 3651 hath he brought935 853 all3605 this2063 evil7451 upon5921 them.


1 καὶ ὡς συνετέλεσεν Σαλωμων προσευχόμενος καὶ τὸ πῦρ κατέβη ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ κατέφαγεν τὰ ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ τὰς θυσίας καὶ δόξα κυρίου ἔπλησεν τὸν οἶκον

2 καὶ οὐκ ἠδύναντο οἱ ἱερεῖς εἰσελθεῖν εἰς τὸν οἶκον κυρίου ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ ὅτι ἔπλησεν δόξα κυρίου τὸν οἶκον

3 καὶ πάντες οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ἑώρων καταβαῖνον τὸ πῦρ καὶ ἡ δόξα κυρίου ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον καὶ ἔπεσον ἐπὶ πρόσωπον ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ἐπὶ τὸ λιθόστρωτον καὶ προσεκύνησαν καὶ ᾔνουν τῷ κυρίῳ ὅτι ἀγαθόν ὅτι εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τὸ ἔλεος αὐτοῦ

4 καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς θύοντες θύματα ἔναντι κυρίου

5 καὶ ἐθυσίασεν Σαλωμων τὴν θυσίαν μόσχων εἴκοσι καὶ δύο χιλιάδας καὶ βοσκημάτων ἑκατὸν καὶ εἴκοσι χιλιάδας καὶ ἐνεκαίνισεν τὸν οἶκον τοῦ θεοῦ ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαός

6 καὶ οἱ ἱερεῖς ἐπὶ τὰς φυλακὰς αὐτῶν ἑστηκότες καὶ οἱ Λευῖται ἐν ὀργάνοις ᾠδῶν κυρίου τοῦ Δαυιδ τοῦ βασιλέως τοῦ ἐξομολογεῖσθαι ἔναντι κυρίου ὅτι εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τὸ ἔλεος αὐτοῦ ἐν ὕμνοις Δαυιδ διὰ χειρὸς αὐτῶν καὶ οἱ ἱερεῖς σαλπίζοντες ταῖς σάλπιγξιν ἐναντίον αὐτῶν καὶ πᾶς Ισραηλ ἑστηκώς

7 καὶ ἡγίασεν Σαλωμων τὸ μέσον τῆς αὐλῆς τῆς ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου ὅτι ἐποίησεν ἐκεῖ τὰ ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ τὰ στέατα τῶν σωτηρίων ὅτι τὸ θυσιαστήριον τὸ χαλκοῦν ὃ ἐποίησεν Σαλωμων οὐκ ἐξεποίει δέξασθαι τὰ ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ τὰ μαναα καὶ τὰ στέατα

8 καὶ ἐποίησεν Σαλωμων τὴν ἑορτὴν ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ ἑπτὰ ἡμέραις καὶ πᾶς Ισραηλ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἐκκλησία μεγάλη σφόδρα ἀπὸ εἰσόδου Αιμαθ καὶ ἕως χειμάρρου Αἰγύπτου

9 καὶ ἐποίησεν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ὀγδόῃ ἐξόδιον ὅτι ἐγκαινισμὸν τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου ἐποίησεν ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας ἑορτήν

10 καὶ ἐν τῇ τρίτῃ καὶ εἰκοστῇ τοῦ μηνὸς τοῦ ἑβδόμου ἀπέστειλεν τὸν λαὸν εἰς τὰ σκηνώματα αὐτῶν εὐφραινομένους καὶ ἀγαθῇ καρδίᾳ ἐπὶ τοῖς ἀγαθοῖς οἷς ἐποίησεν κύριος τῷ Δαυιδ καὶ τῷ Σαλωμων καὶ τῷ Ισραηλ λαῷ αὐτοῦ

11 καὶ συνετέλεσεν Σαλωμων τὸν οἶκον κυρίου καὶ τὸν οἶκον τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ πάντα ὅσα ἠθέλησεν ἐν τῇ ψυχῇ Σαλωμων τοῦ ποιῆσαι ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου καὶ ἐν οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ εὐοδώθη

12 καὶ ὤφθη ὁ θεὸς τῷ Σαλωμων τὴν νύκτα καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ἤκουσα τῆς προσευχῆς σου καὶ ἐξελεξάμην ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ ἐμαυτῷ εἰς οἶκον θυσίας

13 ἐὰν συσχῶ τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ μὴ γένηται ὑετός καὶ ἐὰν ἐντείλωμαι τῇ ἀκρίδι καταφαγεῖν τὸ ξύλον καὶ ἐὰν ἀποστείλω θάνατον ἐν τῷ λαῷ μου

14 καὶ ἐὰν ἐντραπῇ ὁ λαός μου ἐφ᾽ οὓς τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐπικέκληται ἐπ᾽ αὐτούς καὶ προσεύξωνται καὶ ζητήσωσιν τὸ πρόσωπόν μου καὶ ἀποστρέψωσιν ἀπὸ τῶν ὁδῶν αὐτῶν τῶν πονηρῶν καὶ ἐγὼ εἰσακούσομαι ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἵλεως ἔσομαι ταῖς ἁμαρτίαις αὐτῶν καὶ ἰάσομαι τὴν γῆν αὐτῶν

15 νῦν οἱ ὀφθαλμοί μου ἔσονται ἀνεῳγμένοι καὶ τὰ ὦτά μου ἐπήκοα τῇ προσευχῇ τοῦ τόπου τούτου

16 καὶ νῦν ἐξελεξάμην καὶ ἡγίακα τὸν οἶκον τοῦτον τοῦ εἶναι ὄνομά μου ἐκεῖ ἕως αἰῶνος καὶ ἔσονται οἱ ὀφθαλμοί μου καὶ ἡ καρδία μου ἐκεῖ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας

17 καὶ σὺ ἐὰν πορευθῇς ἐναντίον μου ὡς Δαυιδ ὁ πατήρ σου καὶ ποιήσῃς κατὰ πάντα ἃ ἐνετειλάμην σοι καὶ τὰ προστάγματά μου καὶ τὰ κρίματά μου φυλάξῃ

18 καὶ ἀναστήσω τὸν θρόνον τῆς βασιλείας σου ὡς διεθέμην Δαυιδ τῷ πατρί σου λέγων οὐκ ἐξαρθήσεταί σοι ἀνὴρ ἡγούμενος ἐν Ισραηλ

19 καὶ ἐὰν ἀποστρέψητε ὑμεῖς καὶ ἐγκαταλίπητε τὰ προστάγματά μου καὶ τὰς ἐντολάς μου ἃς ἔδωκα ἐναντίον ὑμῶν καὶ πορευθῆτε καὶ λατρεύσητε θεοῖς ἑτέροις καὶ προσκυνήσητε αὐτοῖς

20 καὶ ἐξαρῶ ὑμᾶς ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς ἧς ἔδωκα αὐτοῖς καὶ τὸν οἶκον τοῦτον ὃν ἡγίασα τῷ ὀνόματί μου ἀποστρέψω ἐκ προσώπου μου καὶ δώσω αὐτὸν εἰς παραβολὴν καὶ εἰς διήγημα ἐν πᾶσιν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν

21 καὶ ὁ οἶκος οὗτος ὁ ὑψηλός πᾶς ὁ διαπορευόμενος αὐτὸν ἐκστήσεται καὶ ἐρεῖ χάριν τίνος ἐποίησεν κύριος τῇ γῇ ταύτῃ καὶ τῷ οἴκῳ τούτῳ

22 καὶ ἐροῦσιν διότι ἐγκατέλιπον κύριον τὸν θεὸν τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν τὸν ἐξαγαγόντα αὐτοὺς ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἀντελάβοντο θεῶν ἑτέρων καὶ προσεκύνησαν αὐτοῖς καὶ ἐδούλευσαν αὐτοῖς διὰ τοῦτο ἐπήγαγεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς πᾶσαν τὴν κακίαν ταύτην

1 Cumque complesset Salomon fundens preces, ignis descendit de cælo, et devoravit holocausta et victimas: et majestas Domini implevit domum.

2 Nec poterant sacerdotes ingredi templum Domini, eo quod implesset majestas Domini templum Domini.

3 Sed et omnes filii Israël videbant descendentem ignem, et gloriam Domini super domum: et corruentes proni in terram super pavimentum stratum lapide, adoraverunt, et laudaverunt Dominum, quoniam bonus, quoniam in sæculum misericordia ejus.

4 Rex autem et omnis populus immolabant victimas coram Domino.

5 Mactavit igitur rex Salomon hostias, boum viginti duo millia, arietum centum viginti millia: et dedicavit domum Dei rex, et universus populus.

6 Sacerdotes autem stabant in officiis suis, et Levitæ in organis carminum Domini, quæ fecit David rex ad laudandum Dominum: Quoniam in æternum misericordia ejus, hymnos David canentes per manus suas: porro sacerdotes canebant tubis ante eos, cunctusque Israël stabat.

7 Sanctificavit quoque Salomon medium atrii ante templum Domini: obtulerat enim ibi holocausta et adipes pacificorum: quia altare æneum quod fecerat, non poterat sustinere holocausta et sacrificia et adipes.

8 Fecit ergo Salomon solemnitatem in tempore illo septem diebus, et omnis Israël cum eo, ecclesia magna valde, ab introitu Emath usque ad torrentem Ægypti.

9 Fecitque die octavo collectam, eo quod dedicasset altare septem diebus, et solemnitatem celebrasset diebus septem.

10 Igitur in die vigesimo tertio mensis septimi, dimisit populos ad tabernacula sua, lætantes atque gaudentes super bono quod fecerat Dominus Davidi, et Salomoni, et Israëli populo suo.

11 Complevitque Salomon domum Domini, et domum regis, et omnia quæ disposuerat in corde suo ut faceret in domo Domini, et in domo sua, et prosperatus est.

12 Apparuit autem ei Dominus nocte, et ait: Audivi orationem tuam, et elegi locum istum mihi in domum sacrificii.

13 Si clausero cælum, et pluvia non fluxerit, et mandavero et præcepero locustæ ut devoret terram, et misero pestilentiam in populum meum:

14 conversus autem populus meus, super quos invocatum est nomen meum, deprecatus me fuerit, et exquisierit faciem meam, et egerit pœnitentiam a viis suis pessimis: et ego exaudiam de cælo, et propitius ero peccatis eorum, et sanabo terram eorum.

15 Oculi quoque mei erunt aperti, et aures meæ erectæ ad orationem ejus, qui in loco isto oraverit.

16 Elegi enim, et sanctificavi locum istum, ut sit nomen meum ibi in sempiternum, et permaneant oculi mei et cor meum ibi cunctis diebus.

17 Tu quoque si ambulaveris coram me, sicut ambulaverit David pater tuus, et feceris juxta omnia quæ præcepi tibi, et justitias meas judiciaque servaveris:

18 suscitabo thronum regni tui, sicut pollicitus sum David patri tuo, dicens: Non auferetur de stirpe tua vir qui sit princeps in Israël.

19 Si autem aversi fueritis, et dereliqueritis justitias meas, et præcepta mea quæ proposui vobis, et abeuntes servieritis diis alienis, et adoraveritis eos,

20 evellam vos de terra mea quam dedi vobis: et domum hanc, quam sanctificavi nomini meo, projiciam a facie mea, et tradam eam in parabolam, et in exemplum cunctis populis.

21 Et domus ista erit in proverbium universis transeuntibus, et dicent stupentes: Quare fecit Dominus sic terræ huic, et domui huic?

22 Respondebuntque: Quia dereliquerunt Dominum Deum patrum suorum, qui eduxit eos de terra Ægypti, et apprehenderunt deos alienos, et adoraverunt eos, et coluerunt: idcirco venerunt super eos universa hæc mala.
