7:2
nec poterant sacerdotes ingredi templum Domini eo quodimplesset maiestas Domini templum Domini

7:3
sed et omnes filii Israhel videbant descendentem ignem etgloriam Domini super domum et corruentes proni in terram superpavimentum stratum lapide adoraverunt et laudaverunt Dominumquoniam bonus quoniam in aeternum misericordia eius

7:4
rex autem et omnis populus immolabant victimas coram Domino

7:5
mactavit igitur rex Salomon hostias boum viginti duo miliaarietum centum viginti milia et dedicavit domum Dei rex etuniversus populus

7:6
sacerdotes autem stabant in officiis suis et Levitae inorganis carminum Domini quae fecit David rex ad laudandumDominum quoniam in aeternum misericordia eius hymnos Davidcanentes per manus suas porro sacerdotes canebant tubis anteeos cunctusque Israhel stabat

7:7
sanctificavit quoque Salomon medium atrii ante templumDomini obtulerat enim ibi holocausta et adipes pacificorum quiaaltare aeneum quod fecerat non poterat sustinere holocausta etsacrificia et adipes

7:8
fecit ergo Salomon sollemnitatem in tempore illo septemdiebus et omnis Israhel cum eo ecclesia magna valde ab introituEmath usque ad torrentem Aegypti

7:9
fecitque die octavo collectam eo quod dedicasset altareseptem diebus et sollemnitatem celebrasset diebus septem

7:10
igitur in die vicesimo tertio mensis septimi dimisitpopulos ad tabernacula sua laetantes atque gaudentes super bonoquod fecerat Dominus David et Salomoni et Israhel populo suo

conplevitque Salomon domum Domini et domum regis et omniaquae disposuerat in corde suo ut faceret in domo Domini et indomo sua et prosperatus est

7:12
apparuit autem ei Dominus nocte et ait audivi orationemtuam et elegi locum istum mihi in domum sacrificii

7:13
si clausero caelum et pluvia non fluxerit et mandavero etpraecepero lucustae ut devoret terram et misero pestilentiam inpopulum meum

7:14
conversus autem populus meus super quos invocatum est nomenmeum deprecatus me fuerit et exquisierit faciem meam et egeritpaenitentiam a viis suis pessimis et ego exaudiam de caelo etpropitius ero peccatis eorum et sanabo terram eorum

7:15
oculi quoque mei erunt aperti et aures meae erectae adorationem eius qui in loco isto oraverit

7:16

7:17
tu quoque si ambulaveris coram me sicut ambulavit Davidpater tuus et feceris iuxta omnia quae praecepi tibi etiustitias meas iudiciaque servaveris

7:19
si autem aversi fueritis et dereliqueritis iustitias measet praecepta mea quae proposui vobis et abeuntes servieritisdiis alienis et adoraveritis eos

7:20
evellam vos de terra mea quam dedi vobis et domum hanc quamsanctificavi nomini meo proiciam a facie mea et tradam eam inparabolam et in exemplum cunctis populis

7:21
et domus ista erit in proverbium universis transeuntibus etdicent stupentes quare fecit Dominus sic terrae huic et domuihuic

7:22
respondebuntque quia dereliquerunt Dominum Deum patrumsuorum qui eduxit eos de terra Aegypti et adprehenderunt deosalienos et adoraverunt eos atque coluerunt idcirco veneruntsuper eos universa haec mala

007:001
Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the LORD filled the house.

007:002
And the priests could not enter into the house of the LORD, because the glory of the LORD had filled the LORD's house.

007:003
And when all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the LORD upon the house, they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshipped, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.

007:004
Then the king and all the people offered sacrifices before the LORD.

007:005
And king Solomon offered a sacrifice of twenty and two thousand oxen, and an hundred and twenty thousand sheep: so the king and all the people dedicated the house of God.

007:006
And the priests waited on their offices: the Levites also with instruments of music of the LORD, which David the king had made to praise the LORD, because his mercy endureth for ever, when David praised by their ministry; and the priests sounded trumpets before them, and all Israel stood.

007:007
Moreover Solomon hallowed the middle of the court that was before the house of the LORD: for there he offered burnt offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings, because the brazen altar which Solomon had made was not able to receive the burnt offerings, and the meat offerings, and the fat.

007:008
Also at the same time Solomon kept the feast seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great congregation, from the entering in of Hamath unto the river of Egypt.

007:009
And in the eighth day they made a solemn assembly: for they kept the dedication of the altar seven days, and the feast seven days.

007:010
And on the three and twentieth day of the seventh month he sent the people away into their tents, glad and merry in heart for the goodness that the LORD had showed unto David, and to Solomon, and to Israel his people.

007:011
Thus Solomon finished the house of the LORD, and the king's house: and all that came into Solomon's heart to make in the house of the LORD, and in his own house, he prosperously effected.

007:012
And the LORD appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for an house of sacrifice.

007:013
If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;

007:014
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

007:015
Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.

007:016
For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.

007:017
And as for thee, if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, and do according to all that I have commanded thee, and shalt observe my statutes and my judgments;

007:018
Then will I stablish the throne of thy kingdom, according as I have covenanted with David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man to be ruler in Israel.

007:019
But if ye turn away, and forsake my statutes and my commandments, which I have set before you, and shall go and serve other gods, and worship them;

007:020
Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for my name, will I cast out of my sight, and will make it to be a proverb and a byword among all nations.

007:021
And this house, which is high, shall be an astonishment to every one that passeth by it; so that he shall say, Why hath the LORD done thus unto this land, and unto this house?

007:022
And it shall be answered, Because they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, which brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, and laid hold on other gods, and worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath he brought all this evil upon them.
