1 Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel and all the heads of the tribes, the leaders of the fathers' houses of the people of Israel, before King Solomon in Jerusalem, to bring up the ark of the covenant of Yahweh out of the city of David, which is Zion. The Ark is brought into the temple. 1Kgs.8.1-13 | 2Chr.5.2-6.2אָז יַקְהֵל שְׁלֹמֹה אֶת־זִקְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל אֶת־כָּל־רָאשֵׁי הַמַּטֹּות נְשִׂיאֵי הָאָבֹות לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל אֶל־הַמֶּלֶךְ שְׁלֹמֹה יְרוּשָׁלִָם לְהַעֲלֹות אֶת־אֲרֹון בְּרִית־יְהוָה מֵעִיר דָּוִד הִיא צִיֹּון׃
2 And all the men of Israel assembled to King Solomon at the feast in the month Ethanim, which is the seventh month.  וַיִּקָּהֲלוּ אֶל־הַמֶּלֶךְ שְׁלֹמֹה כָּל־אִישׁ יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּיֶרַח הָאֵתָנִים בֶּחָג הוּא הַחֹדֶשׁ הַשְּׁבִיעִי׃
3 And all the elders of Israel came, and the priests took up the ark.  וַיָּבֹאוּ כֹּל זִקְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וַיִּשְׂאוּ הַכֹּהֲנִים אֶת־הָאָרֹון׃
4 And they brought up the ark of Yahweh, the tent of meeting, and all the holy vessels that were in the tent; the priests and the Levites brought them up.  וַיַּעֲלוּ אֶת־אֲרֹון יְהוָה וְאֶת־אֹהֶל מֹועֵד וְאֶת־כָּל־כְּלֵי הַקֹּדֶשׁ אֲשֶׁר בָּאֹהֶל וַיַּעֲלוּ אֹתָם הַכֹּהֲנִים וְהַלְוִיִּם׃
5 And King Solomon and all the congregation of Israel, who had assembled before him, were with him before the ark, sacrificing so many sheep and oxen that they could not be counted or numbered.  וְהַמֶּלֶךְ שְׁלֹמֹה וְכָל־עֲדַת יִשְׂרָאֵל הַנֹּועָדִים עָלָיו אִתֹּו לִפְנֵי הָאָרֹון מְזַבְּחִים צֹאן וּבָקָר אֲשֶׁר לֹא־יִסָּפְרוּ וְלֹא יִמָּנוּ מֵרֹב׃
6 Then the priests brought the ark of the covenant of Yahweh to its place, in the inner sanctuary of the house, in the most holy place, underneath the wings of the cherubim.  וַיָּבִאוּ הַכֹּהֲנִים אֶת־אֲרֹון בְּרִית־יְהוָה אֶל־מְקֹומֹו אֶל־דְּבִיר הַבַּיִת אֶל־קֹדֶשׁ הַקֳּדָשִׁים אֶל־תַּחַת כַּנְפֵי הַכְּרוּבִים׃
7 For the cherubim spread out their wings over the place of the ark, so that the cherubim made a covering above the ark and its poles.  כִּי הַכְּרוּבִים פֹּרְשִׂים כְּנָפַיִם אֶל־מְקֹום הָאָרֹון וַיָּסֹכּוּ הַכְּרֻבִים עַל־הָאָרֹון וְעַל־בַּדָּיו מִלְמָעְלָה׃
8 And the poles were so long that the ends of the poles were seen from the holy place before the inner sanctuary; but they could not be seen from outside; and they are there to this day.  וַיַּאֲרִכוּ הַבַּדִּים וַיֵּרָאוּ רָאשֵׁי הַבַּדִּים מִן־הַקֹּדֶשׁ עַל־פְּנֵי הַדְּבִיר וְלֹא יֵרָאוּ הַחוּצָה וַיִּהְיוּ שָׁם עַד הַיֹּום הַזֶּה׃
9 There was nothing in the ark except the two tables of stone which Moses put there at Horeb, where Yahweh made a covenant with the people of Israel, when they came out of the land of Egypt.  אֵין בָּאָרֹון רַק שְׁנֵי לֻחֹות הָאֲבָנִים אֲשֶׁר הִנִּחַ שָׁם מֹשֶׁה בְּחֹרֵב אֲשֶׁר כָּרַת יְהוָה עִם־בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּצֵאתָם מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם׃
10 And when the priests came out of the holy place, a cloud filled the house of Yahweh,  וַיְהִי בְּצֵאת הַכֹּהֲנִים מִן־הַקֹּדֶשׁ וְהֶעָןָן מָלֵא אֶת־בֵּית יְהוָה׃
11 so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud; for the glory of Yahweh filled the house of Yahweh.  וְלֹא־יָכְלוּ הַכֹּהֲנִים לַעֲמֹד לְשָׁרֵת מִפְּנֵי הֶעָןָן כִּי־מָלֵא כְבֹוד־יְהוָה אֶת־בֵּית יְהוָה׃ ף
12 Then Solomon said,

"Yahweh has set the sun in the heavens,
but has said that he would dwell in thick darkness.

 אָז אָמַר שְׁלֹמֹה

יְהוָה אָמַר לִשְׁכֹּן בָּעֲרָפֶל׃

13 I have built you an exalted house,
a place for you to dwell in for ever."
 בָּנֹה בָנִיתִי בֵּית זְבֻל לָךְ מָכֹון לְשִׁבְתְּךָ עֹולָמִים׃
14 Then the king faced about, and blessed all the assembly of Israel, while all the assembly of Israel stood. Solomon's address to the people. 1Kgs.8.14-21 | 2Chr.6.3-11וַיַּסֵּב הַמֶּלֶךְ אֶת־פָּנָיו וַיְבָרֶךְ אֵת כָּל־קְהַל יִשְׂרָאֵל וְכָל־קְהַל יִשְׂרָאֵל עֹמֵד׃
15 And he said, "Blessed be Yahweh, the God of Israel, who with his hand has fulfilled what he promised with his mouth to David my father, saying,  וַיֹּאמֶר בָּרוּךְ יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל אֲשֶׁר דִּבֶּר בְּפִיו אֵת דָּוִד אָבִי וּבְיָדֹו מִלֵּא לֵאמֹר׃
16 Since the day that I brought my people Israel out of Egypt, I chose no city in all the tribes of Israel in which to build a house, that my name might be there; but I chose David to be over my people Israel.'  מִן־הַיֹּום אֲשֶׁר הֹוצֵאתִי אֶת־עַמִּי אֶת־יִשְׂרָאֵל מִמִּצְרַיִם לֹא־בָחַרְתִּי בְעִיר מִכֹּל שִׁבְטֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לִבְנֹות בַּיִת לִהְיֹות שְׁמִי שָׁם וָאֶבְחַר בְּדָוִד לִהְיֹות עַל־עַמִּי יִשְׂרָאֵל׃
17 Now it was in the heart of David my father to build a house for the name of Yahweh, the God of Israel.  וַיְהִי עִם־לְבַב דָּוִד אָבִי לִבְנֹות בַּיִת לְשֵׁם יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל׃
18 But Yahweh said to David my father, 'Whereas it was in your heart to build a house for my name, you did well that it was in your heart;  וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל־דָּוִד אָבִי יַעַן אֲשֶׁר הָיָה עִם־לְבָבְךָ לִבְנֹות בַּיִת לִשְׁמִי הֱטִיבֹתָ כִּי הָיָה עִם־לְבָבֶךָ׃
19 nevertheless you shall not build the house, but your son who shall be born to you shall build the house for my name.'  רַק אַתָּה לֹא תִבְנֶה הַבָּיִת כִּי אִם־בִּנְךָ הַיֹּצֵא מֵחֲלָצֶיךָ הוּא־יִבְנֶה הַבַּיִת לִשְׁמִי׃
20 Now Yahweh has fulfilled his promise which he made; for I have risen in the place of David my father, and sit on the throne of Israel, as Yahweh promised, and I have built the house for the name of Yahweh, the God of Israel.  וַיָּקֶם יְהוָה אֶת־דְּבָרֹו אֲשֶׁר דִּבֵּר וָאָקֻם תַּחַת דָּוִד אָבִי וָאֵשֵׁב עַל־כִּסֵּא יִשְׂרָאֵל כַּאֲשֶׁר דִּבֶּר יְהוָה וָאֶבְנֶה הַבַּיִת לְשֵׁם יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל׃
21 And there I have provided a place for the ark, in which is the covenant of Yahweh which he made with our fathers, when he brought them out of the land of Egypt."  וָאָשִׂם שָׁם מָקֹום לָאָרֹון אֲשֶׁר־שָׁם בְּרִית יְהוָה אֲשֶׁר כָּרַת עִם־אֲבֹתֵינוּ בְּהֹוצִיאֹו אֹתָם מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם׃ ס
22 Then Solomon stood before the altar of Yahweh in the presence of all the assembly of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven; Solomon's prayer. 1Kgs.8.22-61 | 2Chr.6.12-42וַיַּעֲמֹד שְׁלֹמֹה לִפְנֵי מִזְבַּח יְהוָה נֶגֶד כָּל־קְהַל יִשְׂרָאֵל וַיִּפְרֹשׂ כַּפָּיו הַשָּׁמָיִם׃
23 and said, " O Yahweh, God of Israel, there is no God like you, in heaven above or on earth beneath, keeping covenant and showing steadfast love to your servants who walk before you with all their heart;  וַיֹּאמַר יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל אֵין־כָּמֹוךָ אֱלֹהִים בַּשָּׁמַיִם מִמַּעַל וְעַל־הָאָרֶץ מִתָּחַת שֹׁמֵר הַבְּרִית וְהַחֶסֶד לַעֲבָדֶיךָ הַהֹלְכִים לְפָנֶיךָ בְּכָל־לִבָּם׃
24 who have kept with your servant David my father what you declared to him; yea, you spoke with your mouth, and with your hand have fulfilled it this day.  אֲשֶׁר שָׁמַרְתָּ לְעַבְדְּךָ דָּוִד אָבִי אֵת אֲשֶׁר־דִּבַּרְתָּ לֹו וַתְּדַבֵּר בְּפִיךָ וּבְיָדְךָ מִלֵּאתָ כַּיֹּום הַזֶּה׃
25 Now therefore, O Yahweh, God of Israel, keep with your servant David my father what you have promised him, saying, 'There shall never fail you a man before me to sit upon the throne of Israel, if only your sons take heed to their way, to walk before me as you have walked before me.'  וְעַתָּה יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל שְׁמֹר לְעַבְדְּךָ דָוִד אָבִי אֵת אֲשֶׁר דִּבַּרְתָּ לֹּו לֵאמֹר לֹא־יִכָּרֵת לְךָ אִישׁ מִלְּפָנַי יֹשֵׁב עַל־כִּסֵּא יִשְׂרָאֵל רַק אִם־יִשְׁמְרוּ בָנֶיךָ אֶת־דַּרְכָּם לָלֶכֶת לְפָנַי כַּאֲשֶׁר הָלַכְתָּ לְפָנָי׃
26 Now therefore, O God of Israel, let your word be confirmed, which you have spoken to your servant David my father.  וְעַתָּה אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל יֵאָמֶן נָא {כ= דְּבָרֶיךָ} {ק= דְּבָרְךָ} אֲשֶׁר דִּבַּרְתָּ לְעַבְדְּךָ דָּוִד אָבִי׃
27 "But will God indeed dwell on the earth? Behold, heaven and the highest heaven cannot contain you; how much less this house which I have built!  כִּי הַאֻמְנָם יֵשֵׁב אֱלֹהִים עַל־הָאָרֶץ הִנֵּה הַשָּׁמַיִם וּשְׁמֵי הַשָּׁמַיִם לֹא יְכַלְכְּלוּךָ אַף כִּי־הַבַּיִת הַזֶּה אֲשֶׁר בָּנִיתִי׃
28 Yet have regard to the prayer of your servant and to his supplication, O Yahweh my God, hearkening to the cry and to the prayer which your servant prays before you this day;  וּפָנִיתָ אֶל־תְּפִלַּת עַבְדְּךָ וְאֶל־תְּחִנָּתֹו יְהוָה אֱלֹהָי לִשְׁמֹעַ אֶל־הָרִנָּה וְאֶל־הַתְּפִלָּה אֲשֶׁר עַבְדְּךָ מִתְפַּלֵּל לְפָנֶיךָ הַיֹּום׃
29 that your eyes may be open night and day toward this house, the place of which you have said, 'My name shall be there,' that you may hearken to the prayer which your servant offers toward this place.  לִהְיֹות עֵינֶךָ פְתֻחֹות אֶל־הַבַּיִת הַזֶּה לַיְלָה וָיֹום אֶל־הַמָּקֹום אֲשֶׁר אָמַרְתָּ יִהְיֶה שְׁמִי שָׁם לִשְׁמֹעַ אֶל־הַתְּפִלָּה אֲשֶׁר יִתְפַּלֵּל עַבְדְּךָ אֶל־הַמָּקֹום הַזֶּה׃
30 And hearken to the supplication of your servant and of your people Israel, when they pray toward this place; yea, O hear in heaven your dwelling place; and when you hear, forgive.  וְשָׁמַעְתָּ אֶל־תְּחִנַּת עַבְדְּךָ וְעַמְּךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל אֲשֶׁר יִתְפַּלְלוּ אֶל־הַמָּקֹום הַזֶּה וְאַתָּה תִּשְׁמַע אֶל־מְקֹום שִׁבְתְּךָ אֶל־הַשָּׁמַיִם וְשָׁמַעְתָּ וְסָלָחְתָּ׃
31 "If a man sins against his neighbour and is made to take an oath, and comes and swears his oath before your altar in this house,  אֵת אֲשֶׁר יֶחֱטָא אִישׁ לְרֵעֵהוּ וְנָשָׁא־בֹו אָלָה לְהַאֲלֹתֹו וּבָא אָלָה לִפְנֵי מִזְבַּחֲךָ בַּבַּיִת הַזֶּה׃
32 then hear in heaven, and act, and judge your servants, condemning the guilty by bringing his conduct upon his own head, and vindicating the righteous by rewarding him according to his righteousness.  וְאַתָּה תִּשְׁמַע הַשָּׁמַיִם וְעָשִׂיתָ וְשָׁפַטְתָּ אֶת־עֲבָדֶיךָ לְהַרְשִׁיעַ רָשָׁע לָתֵת דַּרְכֹּו בְּרֹאשֹׁו וּלְהַצְדִּיק צַדִּיק לָתֶת לֹו כְּצִדְקָתֹו׃ ס
33 "When your people Israel are defeated before the enemy because they have sinned against you, if they turn again to you, and acknowledge your name, and pray and make supplication to you in this house;  בְּהִנָּגֵף עַמְּךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל לִפְנֵי אֹויֵב אֲשֶׁר יֶחֶטְאוּ־לָךְ וְשָׁבוּ אֵלֶיךָ וְהֹודוּ אֶת־שְׁמֶךָ וְהִתְפַּלְלוּ וְהִתְחַנְּנוּ אֵלֶיךָ בַּבַּיִת הַזֶּה׃
34 then hear in heaven, and forgive the sin of your people Israel, and bring them again to the land which you gave to their fathers.  וְאַתָּה תִּשְׁמַע הַשָּׁמַיִם וְסָלַחְתָּ לְחַטַּאת עַמְּךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל וַהֲשֵׁבֹתָם אֶל־הָאֲדָמָה אֲשֶׁר נָתַתָּ לַאֲבֹותָם׃ ס
35 "When heaven is shut up and there is no rain because they have sinned against you, if they pray toward this place, and acknowledge your name, and turn from their sin, when you afflict them,  בְּהֵעָצֵר שָׁמַיִם וְלֹא־יִהְיֶה מָטָר כִּי יֶחֶטְאוּ־לָךְ וְהִתְפַּלְלוּ אֶל־הַמָּקֹום הַזֶּה וְהֹודוּ אֶת־שְׁמֶךָ וּמֵחַטָּאתָם יְשׁוּבוּן כִּי תַעֲנֵם׃
36 then hear in heaven, and forgive the sin of your servants, your people Israel, when you teach them the good way in which they should walk; and grant rain upon your land, which you have given to your people as an inheritance.  וְאַתָּה תִּשְׁמַע הַשָּׁמַיִם וְסָלַחְתָּ לְחַטַּאת עֲבָדֶיךָ וְעַמְּךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל כִּי תֹורֵם אֶת־הַדֶּרֶךְ הַטֹּובָה אֲשֶׁר יֵלְכוּ־בָהּ וְנָתַתָּה מָטָר עַל־אַרְצְךָ אֲשֶׁר־נָתַתָּה לְעַמְּךָ לְנַחֲלָה׃ ס
37 "If there is famine in the land, if there is pestilence or blight or mildew or locust or caterpillar; if their enemy besieges them in any of their cities; whatever plague, whatever sickness there is;  רָעָב כִּי־יִהְיֶה בָאָרֶץ דֶּבֶר כִּי־יִהְיֶה שִׁדָּפֹון יֵרָקֹון אַרְבֶּה חָסִיל כִּי יִהְיֶה כִּי יָצַר־לֹו אֹיְבֹו בְּאֶרֶץ שְׁעָרָיו כָּל־נֶגַע כָּל־מַחֲלָה׃
38 whatever prayer, whatever supplication is made by any man or by all your people Israel, each knowing the affliction of his own heart and stretching out his hands toward this house;  כָּל־תְּפִלָּה כָל־תְּחִנָּה אֲשֶׁר תִהְיֶה לְכָל־הָאָדָם לְכֹל עַמְּךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל אֲשֶׁר יֵדְעוּן אִישׁ נֶגַע לְבָבֹו וּפָרַשׂ כַּפָּיו אֶל־הַבַּיִת הַזֶּה׃
39 then hear in heaven your dwelling place, and forgive, and act, and render to each whose heart you know, according to all his ways (for you [and] only you, know the hearts of all the children of men);  וְאַתָּה תִּשְׁמַע הַשָּׁמַיִם מְכֹון שִׁבְתֶּךָ וְסָלַחְתָּ וְעָשִׂיתָ וְנָתַתָּ לָאִישׁ כְּכָל־דְּרָכָיו אֲשֶׁר תֵּדַע אֶת־לְבָבֹו כִּי־אַתָּה יָדַעְתָּ לְבַדְּךָ אֶת־לְבַב כָּל־בְּנֵי הָאָדָם׃
40 that they may fear you all the days that they live in the land which you gave to our fathers.  לְמַעַן יִרָאוּךָ כָּל־הַיָּמִים אֲשֶׁר־הֵם חַיִּים עַל־פְּנֵי הָאֲדָמָה אֲשֶׁר נָתַתָּה לַאֲבֹתֵינוּ׃
41 "Likewise when a foreigner, who is not of your people Israel, comes from a far country for your name's sake  וְגַם אֶל־הַנָּכְרִי אֲשֶׁר לֹא־מֵעַמְּךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל הוּא וּבָא מֵאֶרֶץ רְחֹוקָה לְמַעַן שְׁמֶךָ׃
42 (for they shall hear of your great name, and your mighty hand, and of your outstretched arm), when he comes and prays toward this house,  כִּי יִשְׁמְעוּן אֶת־שִׁמְךָ הַגָּדֹול וְאֶת־יָדְךָ הַחֲזָקָה וּזְרֹעֲךָ הַנְּטוּיָה וּבָא וְהִתְפַּלֵּל אֶל־הַבַּיִת הַזֶּה׃
43 hear in heaven your dwelling place, and do according to all for which the foreigner calls to you; in order that all the peoples of the earth may know your name and fear you, as do your people Israel, and that they may know that this house which I have built is called by your name.  אַתָּה תִּשְׁמַע הַשָּׁמַיִם מְכֹון שִׁבְתֶּךָ וְעָשִׂיתָ כְּכֹל אֲשֶׁר־יִקְרָא אֵלֶיךָ הַנָּכְרִי לְמַעַן יֵדְעוּן כָּל־עַמֵּי הָאָרֶץ אֶת־שְׁמֶךָ לְיִרְאָה אֹתְךָ כְּעַמְּךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל וְלָדַעַת כִּי־שִׁמְךָ נִקְרָא עַל־הַבַּיִת הַזֶּה אֲשֶׁר בָּנִיתִי׃
44 "If your people go out to battle against their enemy, by whatever way you shall send them, and they pray to Yahweh toward the city which you have chosen and the house which I have built for your name,  כִּי־יֵצֵא עַמְּךָ לַמִּלְחָמָה עַל־אֹיְבֹו בַּדֶּרֶךְ אֲשֶׁר תִּשְׁלָחֵם וְהִתְפַּלְלוּ אֶל־יְהוָה דֶּרֶךְ הָעִיר אֲשֶׁר בָּחַרְתָּ בָּהּ וְהַבַּיִת אֲשֶׁר־בָּנִתִי לִשְׁמֶךָ׃
45 then hear in heaven their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause.  וְשָׁמַעְתָּ הַשָּׁמַיִם אֶת־תְּפִלָּתָם וְאֶת־תְּחִנָּתָם וְעָשִׂיתָ מִשְׁפָּטָם׃
46 "If they sin against you - for there is no man who does not sin - and you are angry with them, and give them to an enemy, so that they are carried away captive to the land of the enemy, far off or near;  כִּי יֶחֶטְאוּ־לָךְ כִּי אֵין אָדָם אֲשֶׁר לֹא־יֶחֱטָא וְאָנַפְתָּ בָם וּנְתַתָּם לִפְנֵי אֹויֵב וְשָׁבוּם שֹׁבֵיהֶם אֶל־אֶרֶץ הָאֹויֵב רְחֹוקָה אֹו קְרֹובָה׃
47 yet if they lay it to heart in the land to which they have been carried captive, and repent, and make supplication to you in the land of their captors, saying, 'We have sinned, and have acted perversely and wickedly';  וְהֵשִׁיבוּ אֶל־לִבָּם בָּאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר נִשְׁבּוּ־שָׁם וְשָׁבוּ וְהִתְחַנְּנוּ אֵלֶיךָ בְּאֶרֶץ שֹׁבֵיהֶם לֵאמֹר חָטָאנוּ וְהֶעֱוִינוּ רָשָׁעְנוּ׃
48 if they repent with all their mind and with all their heart in the land of their enemies, who carried them captive, and pray to you toward their land, which you gave to their fathers, the city which you have chosen, and the house which I have built for your name;  וְשָׁבוּ אֵלֶיךָ בְּכָל־לְבָבָם וּבְכָל־נַפְשָׁם בְּאֶרֶץ אֹיְבֵיהֶם אֲשֶׁר־שָׁבוּ אֹתָם וְהִתְפַּלְלוּ אֵלֶיךָ דֶּרֶךְ אַרְצָם אֲשֶׁר נָתַתָּה לַאֲבֹותָם הָעִיר אֲשֶׁר בָּחַרְתָּ וְהַבַּיִת אֲשֶׁר־{כ= בָּנִיתָ} {ק= בָּנִיתִי} לִשְׁמֶךָ׃
49 then hear in heaven your dwelling place their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause  וְשָׁמַעְתָּ הַשָּׁמַיִם מְכֹון שִׁבְתְּךָ אֶת־תְּפִלָּתָם וְאֶת־תְּחִנָּתָם וְעָשִׂיתָ מִשְׁפָּטָם׃
50 and forgive your people who have sinned against you, and all their transgressions which they have committed against you; and grant them compassion in the sight of those who carried them captive, that they may have compassion on them  וְסָלַחְתָּ לְעַמְּךָ אֲשֶׁר חָטְאוּ־לָךְ וּלְכָל־פִּשְׁעֵיהֶם אֲשֶׁר פָּשְׁעוּ־בָךְ וּנְתַתָּם לְרַחֲמִים לִפְנֵי שֹׁבֵיהֶם וְרִחֲמוּם׃
51 (for they are your people, and your heritage, which you brought out of Egypt, from the midst of the iron furnace).  כִּי־עַמְּךָ וְנַחֲלָתְךָ הֵם אֲשֶׁר הֹוצֵאתָ מִמִּצְרַיִם מִתֹּוךְ כּוּר הַבַּרְזֶל׃
52 Let your eyes be open to the supplication of your servant, and to the supplication of your people Israel, giving ear to them whenever they call to you.  לִהְיֹות עֵינֶיךָ פְתֻחֹות אֶל־תְּחִנַּת עַבְדְּךָ וְאֶל־תְּחִנַּת עַמְּךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל לִשְׁמֹעַ אֲלֵיהֶם בְּכֹל קָרְאָם אֵלֶיךָ׃
53 For you separated them from among all the peoples of the earth, to be your heritage, as you declared through Moses, your servant, when you brought our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord Yahweh."  כִּי־אַתָּה הִבְדַּלְתָּם לְךָ לְנַחֲלָה מִכֹּל עַמֵּי הָאָרֶץ כַּאֲשֶׁר דִּבַּרְתָּ בְּיַד מֹשֶׁה עַבְדֶּךָ בְּהֹוצִיאֲךָ אֶת־אֲבֹתֵינוּ מִמִּצְרַיִם אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה׃ ף
54 Now as Solomon finished offering all this prayer and supplication to Yahweh, he arose from before the altar of Yahweh, where he had knelt with hands outstretched toward heaven;  וַיְהִי כְּכַלֹּות שְׁלֹמֹה לְהִתְפַּלֵּל אֶל־יְהוָה אֵת כָּל־הַתְּפִלָּה וְהַתְּחִנָּה הַזֹּאת קָם מִלִּפְנֵי מִזְבַּח יְהוָה מִכְּרֹעַ עַל־בִּרְכָּיו וְכַפָּיו פְּרֻשֹׂות הַשָּׁמָיִם׃
55 and he stood, and blessed all the assembly of Israel with a loud voice, saying,  וַיַּעְמֹד וַיְבָרֶךְ אֵת כָּל־קְהַל יִשְׂרָאֵל קֹול גָּדֹול לֵאמֹר׃
56 "Blessed be Yahweh who has given rest to his people Israel, according to all that he promised; not one word has failed of all his good promise, which he uttered by Moses his servant.  בָּרוּךְ יְהוָה אֲשֶׁר נָתַן מְנוּחָה לְעַמֹּו יִשְׂרָאֵל כְּכֹל אֲשֶׁר דִּבֵּר לֹא־נָפַל דָּבָר אֶחָד מִכֹּל דְּבָרֹו הַטֹּוב אֲשֶׁר דִּבֶּר בְּיַד מֹשֶׁה עַבְדֹּו׃
57 Yahweh our God be with us, as he was with our fathers; may he not leave us or forsake us;  יְהִי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ עִמָּנוּ כַּאֲשֶׁר הָיָה עִם־אֲבֹתֵינוּ אַל־יַעַזְבֵנוּ וְאַל־יִטְּשֵׁנוּ׃
58 that he may incline our hearts to him, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, his statutes, and his ordinances, which he commanded our fathers.  לְהַטֹּות לְבָבֵנוּ אֵלָיו לָלֶכֶת בְּכָל־דְּרָכָיו וְלִשְׁמֹר מִצְוֹתָיו וְחֻקָּיו וּמִשְׁפָּטָיו אֲשֶׁר צִוָּה אֶת־אֲבֹתֵינוּ׃
59 Let these words of mine, wherewith I have made supplication before Yahweh, be near to Yahweh our God day and night, and may he maintain the cause of his servant, and the cause of his people Israel, as each day requires;  וְיִהְיוּ דְבָרַי אֵלֶּה אֲשֶׁר הִתְחַנַּנְתִּי לִפְנֵי יְהוָה קְרֹבִים אֶל־יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ יֹוםָם וָלָיְלָה לַעֲשֹׂות מִשְׁפַּט עַבְדֹּו וּמִשְׁפַּט עַמֹּו יִשְׂרָאֵל דְּבַר־יֹום בְּיֹומֹו׃
60 that all the peoples of the earth may know that Yahweh is God; there is no other.  לְמַעַן דַּעַת כָּל־עַמֵּי הָאָרֶץ כִּי יְהוָה הוּא הָאֱלֹהִים אֵין עֹוד׃
61 Let your heart therefore be wholly true to Yahweh our God, walking in his statutes and keeping his commandments, as at this day."  וְהָיָה לְבַבְכֶם שָׁלֵם עִם יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ לָלֶכֶת בְּחֻקָּיו וְלִשְׁמֹר מִצְוֹתָיו כַּיֹּום הַזֶּה׃
62 Then the king, and all Israel with him, offered sacrifice before Yahweh. Dedication of the temple. 1Kgs.8.62-66וְהַמֶּלֶךְ וְכָל־יִשְׂרָאֵל עִמֹּו זֹבְחִים זֶבַח לִפְנֵי יְהוָה׃
63 Solomon offered as peace offerings to Yahweh twenty-two thousand oxen and a hundred and twenty thousand sheep. So the king and all the people of Israel dedicated the house of Yahweh.  וַיִּזְבַּח שְׁלֹמֹה אֵת זֶבַח הַשְּׁלָמִים אֲשֶׁר זָבַח לַיהוָה בָּקָר עֶשְׂרִים וּשְׁנַיִם אֶלֶף וְצֹאן מֵאָה וְעֶשְׂרִים אָלֶף וַיַּחְנְכוּ אֶת־בֵּית יְהוָה הַמֶּלֶךְ וְכָל־בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל׃
64 The same day the king consecrated the middle of the court that was before the house of Yahweh; for there he offered the burnt offering and the cereal offering and the fat pieces of the peace offerings, because the bronze altar that was before Yahweh was too small to receive the burnt offering and the cereal offering and the fat pieces of the peace offerings.  בַּיֹּום הַהוּא קִדַּשׁ הַמֶּלֶךְ אֶת־תֹּוךְ הֶחָצֵר אֲשֶׁר לִפְנֵי בֵית־יְהוָה כִּי־עָשָׂה שָׁם אֶת־הָעֹלָה וְאֶת־הַמִּנְחָה וְאֵת חֶלְבֵי הַשְּׁלָמִים כִּי־מִזְבַּח הַנְּחֹשֶׁת אֲשֶׁר לִפְנֵי יְהוָה קָטֹן מֵהָכִיל אֶת־הָעֹלָה וְאֶת־הַמִּנְחָה וְאֵת חֶלְבֵי הַשְּׁלָמִים׃
65 So Solomon held the feast at that time, and all Israel with him, a great assembly, from the entrance of Hamath to the Brook of Egypt, before Yahweh our God, seven days.  וַיַּעַשׂ שְׁלֹמֹה בָעֵת־הַהִיא אֶת־הֶחָג וְכָל־יִשְׂרָאֵל עִמֹּו קָהָל גָּדֹול מִלְּבֹוא חֲמָת עַד־נַחַל מִצְרַיִם לִפְנֵי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ שִׁבְעַת יָמִים וְשִׁבְעַת יָמִים אַרְבָּעָה עָשָׂר יֹום׃
66 On the eighth day he sent the people away; and they blessed the king, and went to their homes joyful and glad of heart for all the goodness that Yahweh had shown to David his servant and to Israel his people.  בַּיֹּום הַשְּׁמִינִי שִׁלַּח אֶת־הָעָם וַיְבָרֲכוּ אֶת־הַמֶּלֶךְ וַיֵּלְכוּ לְאָהֳלֵיהֶם שְׂמֵחִים וְטֹובֵי לֵב עַל כָּל־הַטֹּובָה אֲשֶׁר עָשָׂה יְהוָה לְדָוִד עַבְדֹּו וּלְיִשְׂרָאֵל עַמֹּו׃

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
The katapi NEW STUDY BIBLE is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have printed 'YHWH' in black. The later vowel sounds I have shown in the colour gray;
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.

The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background.
