2 Chronicles 6 Text (WEB)
  1. Then Solomon said, "Yahweh has said that he would dwell in the thick darkness.
  2. But I have built you a house of habitation, and a place for you to dwell in forever."
  3. The king turned his face, and blessed all the assembly of Israel: and all the assembly of Israel stood.
  4. He said, "Blessed be Yahweh, the God of Israel, who spoke with his mouth to David my father, and has with his hands fulfilled it, saying,
  5. 'Since the day that I brought forth my people out of the land of Egypt, I chose no city out of all the tribes of Israel to build a house in, that my name might be there; neither chose I any man to be prince over my people Israel:
  6. but I have chosen Jerusalem, that my name might be there; and have chosen David to be over my people Israel.'
  7. Now it was in the heart of David my father to build a house for the name of Yahweh, the God of Israel.
  8. 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:
  9. nevertheless you shall not build the house; but your son who shall come forth out of your body, he shall build the house for my name.'
  10. "Yahweh has performed his word that he spoke; for I have risen up in the place of David my father, and sit on the throne of Israel, as Yahweh promised, and have built the house for the name of Yahweh, the God of Israel.
  11. There I have set the ark, in which is the covenant of Yahweh, which he made with the children of Israel."
  12. He stood before the altar of Yahweh in the presence of all the assembly of Israel, and spread forth his hands
  13. (for Solomon had made a bronze scaffold, five cubits long, and five cubits broad, and three cubits high, and had set it in the midst of the court; and on it he stood, and kneeled down on his knees before all the assembly of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven;)
  14. and he said, "Yahweh, the God of Israel, there is no God like you, in heaven, or on earth; you who keep covenant and loving kindness with your servants, who walk before you with all their heart;
  15. who have kept with your servant David my father that which you promised him: yes, you spoke with your mouth, and have fulfilled it with your hand, as it is this day.
  16. "Now therefore, Yahweh, the God of Israel, keep with your servant David my father that which you have promised him, saying, 'There shall not fail you a man in my sight to sit on the throne of Israel, if only your children take heed to their way, to walk in my law as you have walked before me.'
  17. Now therefore, Yahweh, the God of Israel, let your word be verified, which you spoke to your servant David.
  18. "But will God indeed dwell with men on the earth? Behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens can't contain you; how much less this house which I have built!
  19. Yet have respect for the prayer of your servant, and to his supplication, Yahweh my God, to listen to the cry and to the prayer which your servant prays before you;
  20. that your eyes may be open toward this house day and night, even toward the place where you have said that you would put your name; to listen to the prayer which your servant shall pray toward this place.
  21. Listen to the petitions of your servant, and of your people Israel, when they shall pray toward this place: yes, hear from your dwelling place, even from heaven; and when you hear, forgive.
  22. "If a man sin against his neighbor, and an oath is laid on him to cause him to swear, and he comes and swears before your altar in this house;
  23. then hear from heaven, and do, and judge your servants, bringing retribution to the wicked, to bring his way on his own head; and justifying the righteous, to give him according to his righteousness.
  24. "If your people Israel be struck down before the enemy, because they have sinned against you, and shall turn again and confess your name, and pray and make supplication before you in this house;
  25. then hear from heaven, and forgive the sin of your people Israel, and bring them again to the land which you gave to them and to their fathers.
  26. "When the sky is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against you; if they pray toward this place, and confess your name, and turn from their sin, when you afflict them:
  27. then hear in heaven, and forgive the sin of your servants, and of your people Israel, when you teach them the good way in which they should walk; and send rain on your land, which you have given to your people for an inheritance.
  28. "If there is famine in the land, if there is pestilence, if there is blight or mildew, locust or caterpillar; if their enemies besiege them in the land of their cities; whatever plague or whatever sickness there is;
  29. whatever prayer and supplication be made by any man, or by all your people Israel, who shall know every man his own plague and his own sorrow, and shall spread forth his hands toward this house:
  30. then hear from heaven, your dwelling place and forgive, and render to every man according to all his ways, whose heart you know; (for you, even you only, know the hearts of the children of men;)
  31. that they may fear you, to walk in your ways, so long as they live in the land which you gave to our fathers.
  32. "Moreover concerning the foreigner, who is not of your people Israel, when he shall come from a far country for your great name's sake, and your mighty hand, and your outstretched arm; when they shall come and pray toward this house:
  33. then hear from heaven, even from your dwelling place, and do according to all that the foreigner calls to you for; that all the peoples of the earth may know your name, and fear you, as does your people Israel, and that they may know that this house which I have built is called by your name.
  34. "If your people go out to battle against their enemies, by whatever way you shall send them, and they pray to you toward this city which you have chosen, and the house which I have built for your name;
  35. then hear from heaven their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause.
  36. "If they sin against you (for there is no man who doesn't sin), and you are angry with them, and deliver them to the enemy, so that they carry them away captive to a land far off or near;
  37. yet if they shall repent themselves in the land where they are carried captive, and turn again, and make supplication to you in the land of their captivity, saying, 'We have sinned, we have done perversely, and have dealt wickedly;'
  38. if they return to you with all their heart and with all their soul in the land of their captivity, where they have carried them captive, and pray toward their land, which you gave to their fathers, and the city which you have chosen, and toward the house which I have built for your name:
  39. then hear from heaven, even from your dwelling place, their prayer and their petitions, and maintain their cause, and forgive your people who have sinned against you.
  40. "Now, my God, let, I beg you, your eyes be open, and let your ears be attentive, to the prayer that is made in this place.
  41. "Now therefore arise, Yahweh God, into your resting place, you, and the ark of your strength: let your priests, Yahweh God, be clothed with salvation, and let your saints rejoice in goodness.
  42. "Yahweh God, don't turn away the face of your anointed: remember [your] loving kindnesses to David your servant."

  1. אז אמר שלמה יהוה אמר לשכון בערפל׃
  2. ואני בניתי בית־זבל לך ומכון לשבתך עולמים׃
  3. ויסב המלך את־פניו ויברך את כל־קהל ישראל וכל־קהל ישראל עומד׃
  4. ויאמר ברוך יהוה אלהי ישראל אשר דבר בפיו את דויד אבי ובידיו מלא לאמר׃
  5. מן־היום אשר הוצאתי את־עמי מארץ מצרים לא־בחרתי בעיר מכל שבטי ישראל לבנות בית להיות שמי שם ולא־בחרתי באיש להיות נגיד על־עמי ישראל׃
  6. ואבחר בירושלם להיות שמי שם ואבחר בדויד להיות על־עמי ישראל׃
  7. ויהי עם־לבב דויד אבי לבנות בית לשם יהוה אלהי ישראל׃
  8. ויאמר יהוה אל־דויד אבי יען אשר היה עם־לבבך לבנות בית לשמי הטיבות כי היה עם־לבבך׃
  9. רק אתה לא תבנה הבית כי בנך היוצא מחלציך הוא־יבנה הבית לשמי׃
  10. ויקם יהוה את־דברו אשר דבר ואקום תחת דויד אבי ואשב על־כסא ישראל כאשר דבר יהוה ואבנה הבית לשם יהוה אלהי ישראל׃
  11. ואשים שם את־הארון אשר־שם ברית יהוה אשר כרת עם־בני ישראל׃
  12. ויעמד לפני מזבח יהוה נגד כל־קהל ישראל ויפרש כפיו׃
  13. כי־עשה שלמה כיור נחשת ויתנהו בתוך העזרה חמש אמות ארכו וחמש אמות רחבו ואמות שלוש קומתו ויעמד עליו ויברך על־ברכיו נגד כל־קהל ישראל ויפרש כפיו השמימה׃
  14. ויאמר יהוה אלהי ישראל אין־כמוך אלהים בשמים ובארץ שמר הברית והחסד לעבדיך ההלכים לפניך בכל־לבם׃
  15. אשר שמרת לעבדך דויד אבי את אשר־דברת לו ותדבר בפיך ובידך מלאת כיום הזה׃
  16. ועתה יהוה אלהי ישראל שמר לעבדך דויד אבי את אשר דברת לו לאמר לא־יכרת לך איש מלפני יושב על־כסא ישראל רק אם־ישמרו בניך את־דרכם ללכת בתורתי כאשר הלכת לפני׃
  17. ועתה יהוה אלהי ישראל יאמן דברך אשר דברת לעבדך לדויד׃
  18. כי האמנם ישב אלהים את־האדם על־הארץ הנה שמים ושמי השמים לא יכלכלוך אף כי־הבית הזה אשר בניתי׃
  19. ופנית אל־תפלת עבדך ואל־תחנתו יהוה אלהי לשמע אל־הרנה ואל־התפלה אשר עבדך מתפלל לפניך׃
  20. להיות עיניך פתחות אל־הבית הזה יוםם ולילה אל־המקום אשר אמרת לשום שמך שם לשמוע אל־התפלה אשר יתפלל עבדך אל־המקום הזה׃
  21. ושמעת אל־תחנוני עבדך ועמך ישראל אשר יתפללו אל־המקום הזה ואתה תשמע ממקום שבתך מן־השמים ושמעת וסלחת׃
  22. אם־יחטא איש לרעהו ונשא־בו אלה להאלתו ובא אלה לפני מזבחך בבית הזה׃
  23. ואתה תשמע מן־השמים ועשית ושפטת את־עבדיך להשיב לרשע לתת דרכו בראשו ולהצדיק צדיק לתת לו כצדקתו׃ ס
  24. ואם־ינגף עמך ישראל לפני אויב כי יחטאו־לך ושבו והודו את־שמך והתפללו והתחננו לפניך בבית הזה׃
  25. ואתה תשמע מן־השמים וסלחת לחטאת עמך ישראל והשיבותם אל־האדמה אשר־נתתה להם ולאבתיהם׃ ף
  26. בהעצר השמים ולא־יהיה מטר כי יחטאו־לך והתפללו אל־המקום הזה והודו את־שמך מחטאתם ישובון כי תענם׃
  27. ואתה תשמע השמים וסלחת לחטאת עבדיך ועמך ישראל כי תורם אל־הדרך הטובה אשר ילכו־בה ונתתה מטר על־ארצך אשר־נתתה לעמך לנחלה׃ ס
  28. רעב כי־יהיה בארץ דבר כי־יהיה שדפון וירקון ארבה וחסיל כי יהיה כי יצר־לו אויביו בארץ שעריו כל־נגע וכל־מחלה׃
  29. כל־תפלה כל־תחנה אשר יהיה לכל־האדם ולכל עמך ישראל אשר ידעו איש נגעו ומכאבו ופרש כפיו אל־הבית הזה׃
  30. ואתה תשמע מן־השמים מכון שבתך וסלחת ונתתה לאיש ככל־דרכיו אשר תדע את־לבבו כי אתה לבדך ידעת את־לבב בני האדם׃
  31. למען ייראוך ללכת בדרכיך כל־הימים אשר־הם חיים על־פני האדמה אשר נתתה לאבתינו׃ ס
  32. וגם אל־הנכרי אשר לא מעמך ישראל הוא ובא מארץ רחוקה למען שמך הגדול וידך החזקה וזרועך הנטויה ובאו והתפללו אל־הבית הזה׃
  33. ואתה תשמע מן־השמים ממכון שבתך ועשית ככל אשר־יקרא אליך הנכרי למען ידעו כל־עמי הארץ את־שמך וליראה אתך כעמך ישראל ולדעת כי־שמך נקרא על־הבית הזה אשר בניתי׃
  34. כי־יצא עמך למלחמה על־אויביו בדרך אשר תשלחם והתפללו אליך דרך העיר הזאת אשר בחרת בה והבית אשר־בניתי לשמך׃
  35. ושמעת מן־השמים את־תפלתם ואת־תחנתם ועשית משפטם׃
  36. כי יחטאו־לך כי אין אדם אשר לא־יחטא ואנפת בם ונתתם לפני אויב ושבום שוביהם אל־ארץ רחוקה או קרובה׃
  37. והשיבו אל־לבבם בארץ אשר נשבו־שם ושבו והתחננו אליך בארץ שבים לאמר חטאנו העוינו ורשענו׃
  38. ושבו אליך בכל־לבם ובכל־נפשם בארץ שבים אשר־שבו אתם והתפללו דרך ארצם אשר נתתה לאבותם והעיר אשר בחרת ולבית אשר־בניתי לשמך׃
  39. ושמעת מן־השמים ממכון שבתך את־תפלתם ואת־תחנתיהם ועשית משפטם וסלחת לעמך אשר חטאו־לך׃
  40. עתה אלהי יהיו־נא עיניך פתחות ואזניך קשבות לתפלת המקום הזה׃ ס
  41. ועתה קומה יהוה אלהים לנוחך אתה וארון עזך כהניך יהוה אלהים ילבשו תשועה וחסידיך ישמחו בטוב׃
  42. יהוה אלהים אל־תשב פני משיחיך זכרה לחסדי דויד עבדך׃ ף

  1. τοτε ειπεν σαλωμων κυριος ειπεν του κατασκηνωσαι εν
  2. και εγω ωκοδομηκα οικον τω ονοματι σου αγιον σοι και ετοιμον του κατασκηνωσαι εις τους
  3. και επεστρεψεν ο βασιλευς το προσωπον αυτου και ευλογησεν την πασαν εκκλησιαν ισραηλ και πασα εκκλησια ισραηλ
  4. και ειπεν ευλογητος κυριος ο θεος ισραηλ ος ελαλησεν εν στοματι αυτου προς δαυιδ τον πατερα μου και εν χερσιν αυτου επληρωσεν
  5. απο της ημερας ης ανηγαγον τον λαον μου εκ γης αιγυπτου ουκ εξελεξαμην εν πολει απο πασων φυλων ισραηλ του οικοδομησαι οικον του ειναι ονομα μου εκει και ουκ εξελεξαμην εν ανδρι του ειναι εις ηγουμενον επι τον λαον μου
  6. και εξελεξαμην εν ιερουσαλημ γενεσθαι το ονομα μου εκει και εξελεξαμην εν δαυιδ ωστε ειναι επανω του λαου μου
  7. και εγενετο επι καρδιαν δαυιδ του πατρος μου του οικοδομησαι οικον τω ονοματι κυριου θεου
  8. και ειπεν κυριος προς δαυιδ πατερα μου διοτι εγενετο επι καρδιαν σου του οικοδομησαι οικον τω ονοματι μου καλως εποιησας οτι εγενετο επι καρδιαν
  9. πλην συ ουκ οικοδομησεις τον οικον οτι ο υιος σου ος εξελευσεται εκ της οσφυος σου ουτος οικοδομησει τον οικον τω ονοματι
  10. και ανεστησεν κυριος τον λογον αυτου ον ελαλησεν και εγενηθην αντι δαυιδ πατρος μου και εκαθισα επι τον θρονον ισραηλ καθως ελαλησεν κυριος και ωκοδομησα τον οικον τω ονοματι κυριου θεου
  11. και εθηκα εκει την κιβωτον εν η εκει διαθηκη κυριου ην διεθετο τω
  12. και εστη κατεναντι του θυσιαστηριου κυριου εναντι πασης εκκλησιας ισραηλ και διεπετασεν τας χειρας
  13. οτι εποιησεν σαλωμων βασιν χαλκην και εθηκεν αυτην εν μεσω της αυλης του ιερου πεντε πηχων το μηκος αυτης και πεντε πηχεων το ευρος αυτης και τριων πηχεων το υψος αυτης και εστη επ' αυτης και επεσεν επι τα γονατα εναντι πασης εκκλησιας ισραηλ και διεπετασεν τας χειρας αυτου εις τον
  14. και ειπεν κυριε ο θεος ισραηλ ουκ εστιν ομοιος σοι θεος εν ουρανω και επι της γης φυλασσων την διαθηκην και το ελεος τοις παισιν σου τοις πορευομενοις εναντιον σου εν ολη
  15. α εφυλαξας τω παιδι σου δαυιδ τω πατρι μου α ελαλησας αυτω λεγων και ελαλησας εν στοματι σου και εν χερσιν σου επληρωσας ως η ημερα
  16. και νυν κυριε ο θεος ισραηλ φυλαξον τω παιδι σου τω δαυιδ τω πατρι μου α ελαλησας αυτω λεγων ουκ εκλειψει σοι ανηρ απο προσωπου μου καθημενος επι θρονου ισραηλ πλην εαν φυλαξωσιν οι υιοι σου την οδον αυτων του πορευεσθαι εν τω νομω μου ως επορευθης εναντιον
  17. και νυν κυριε ο θεος ισραηλ πιστωθητω δη το ρημα σου ο ελαλησας τω παιδι σου τω
  18. οτι ει αληθως κατοικησει θεος μετα ανθρωπων επι της γης ει ο ουρανος και ο ουρανος του ουρανου ουκ αρκεσουσιν σοι και τις ο οικος ουτος ον
  19. και επιβλεψη επι την προσευχην παιδος σου και επι την δεησιν μου κυριε ο θεος του επακουσαι της δεησεως και της προσευχης ης ο παις σου προσευχεται εναντιον σου
  20. του ειναι οφθαλμους σου ανεωγμενους επι τον οικον τουτον ημερας και νυκτος εις τον τοπον τουτον ον ειπας επικληθηναι το ονομα σου εκει του ακουσαι της προσευχης ης ο παις σου προσευχεται εις τον τοπον
  21. και ακουση της δεησεως του παιδος σου και λαου σου ισραηλ α αν προσευξωνται εις τον τοπον τουτον και συ εισακουση εν τω τοπω της κατοικησεως σου εκ του ουρανου και ακουση και ιλεως

2 Chronicles 6 Text (Latin)
  1. Tunc Salomon ait : Dominus pollicitus est ut habitaret in caligine :
  2. ego autem ædificavi domum nomini ejus, ut habitaret ibi in perpetuum.
  3. Et convertit rex faciem suam, et benedixit universæ multitudini Israël (nam omnis turba stabat intenta) et ait :
  4. Benedictus Dominus Deus Israël, qui quod locutus est David patri meo, opere complevit, dicens :
  5. A die, qua eduxi populum meum de terra Ægypti, non elegi civitatem de cunctis tribubus Israël, ut ædificaretur in ea domus nomini meo : neque elegi quemquam alium virum, ut esset dux in populo Israël,
  6. sed elegi Jerusalem, ut sit nomen meum in ea : et elegi David, ut constituerem eum super populum meum Israël.
  7. Cumque fuisset voluntatis David patris mei ut ædificaret domum nomini Domini Dei Israël,
  8. dixit Dominus ad eum : Quia hæc fuit voluntas tua, ut ædificares domum nomini meo, bene quidem fecisti hujuscemodi habere voluntatem :
  9. sed non tu ædificabis domum, verum filius tuus, qui egredietur de lumbis tuis, ipse ædificabit domum nomini meo.
  10. Complevit ergo Dominus sermonem suum, quem locutus fuerat : et ego surrexi pro David patre meo, et sedi super thronum Israël, sicut locutus est Dominus : et ædificavi domum nomini Domini Dei Israël.
  11. Et posui in ea arcam, in qua est pactum Domini, quod pepigit cum filiis Israël.
  12. Stetit ergo coram altari Domini ex adverso universæ multitudinis Israël, et extendit manus suas.
  13. Siquidem fecerat Salomon basim æneam, et posuerat eam in medio basilicæ, habentem quinque cubitos longitudinis, et quinque cubitos latitudinis, et tres cubitos altitudinis : stetitque super eam, et deinceps flexis genibus contra universam multitudinem Israël, et palmis in cælum levatis,
  14. ait : Domine Deus Israël, non est similis tui deus in cælo et in terra : qui custodis pactum et misericordiam cum servis tuis, qui ambulant coram te in toto corde suo :
  15. qui præstitisti servo tuo David patri meo quæcumque locutus fueras ei : et quæ ore promiseras, opere complesti, sicut et præsens tempus probat.
  16. Nunc ergo Domine Deus Israël, imple servo tuo patri meo David quæcumque locutus es, dicens : Non deficiet ex te vir coram me, qui sedeat super thronum Israël : ita tamen si custodierint filii tui vias suas, et ambulaverint in lege mea, sicut et tu ambulasti coram me.
  17. Et nunc Domine Deus Israël, firmetur sermo tuus, quem locutus es servo tuo David.
  18. Ergone credibile est ut habitet Deus cum hominibus super terram ? si cælum et cæli cælorum non te capiunt, quanto magis domus ista, quam ædificavi ?
  19. Sed ad hoc tantum facta est, ut respicias orationem servi tui, et obsecrationem ejus, Domine Deus meus : et audias preces, quas fundit famulus tuus coram te,
  20. ut aperias oculos tuos super domum istam diebus ac noctibus, super locum, in quo pollicitus es ut invocaretur nomen tuum,
  21. et exaudires orationem, quam servus tuus orat in eo : et exaudias preces famuli tui, et populi tui Israël. Quicumque oraverit in loco isto, exaudi de habitaculo tuo, id est, de cælis, et propitiare.
  22. Si peccaverit quispiam in proximum suum, et jurare contra eum paratus venerit, seque maledicto constrinxerit coram altari in domo ista :
  23. tu audies de cælo, et facies judicium servorum tuorum, ita ut reddas iniquo viam suam in caput proprium, et ulciscaris justum, retribuens ei secundum justitiam suam.
  24. Si superatus fuerit populus tuus Israël ab inimicis (peccabunt enim tibi) et conversi egerint pœnitentiam, et obsecraverint nomen tuum, et fuerint deprecati in loco isto,
  25. tu exaudies de cælo, et propitiare peccato populi tui Israël, et reduc eos in terram, quam dedisti eis, et patribus eorum.
  26. Si clauso cælo pluvia non fluxerit propter peccata populi, et deprecati te fuerint in loco isto, et confessi nomini tuo, et conversi a peccatis suis, cum eos afflixeris,
  27. exaudi de cælo, Domine, et dimitte peccata servis tuis et populi tui Israël, et doce eos viam bonam, per quam ingrediantur : et da pluviam terræ, quam dedisti populo tuo ad possidendum.
  28. Fames si orta fuerit in terra et pestilentia, ærugo, et aurugo, et locusta, et bruchus, et hostes, vastatis regionibus, portas obsederint civitatis, omnisque plaga et infirmitas presserit :
  29. si quis de populo tuo Israël fuerit deprecatus, cognoscens plagam et infirmitatem suam, et expanderit manus suas in domo hac,
  30. tu exaudies de cælo, de sublimi scilicet habitaculo tuo, et propitiare, et redde unicuique secundum vias suas, quas nosti eum habere in corde suo (tu enim solus nosti corda filiorum hominum) :
  31. ut timeant te, et ambulent in viis tuis cunctis diebus, quibus vivunt super faciem terræ, quam dedisti patribus nostris.
  32. Externum quoque, qui non est de populo tuo Israël, si venerit de terra longinqua propter nomen tuum magnum, et propter manum tuam robustam, et brachium tuum extentum, et adoraverit in loco isto,
  33. tu exaudies de cælo firmissimo habitaculo tuo, et facies cuncta, pro quibus invocaverit te ille peregrinus : ut sciant omnes populi terræ nomen tuum, et timeant te sicut populus tuus Israël, et cognoscant, quia nomen tuum invocatum est super domum hanc, quam ædificavi.
  34. Si egressus fuerit populus tuus ad bellum contra adversarios suos per viam in qua miseris eos, adorabunt te contra viam, in qua civitas hæc est, quam elegisti, et domus, quam ædificavi nomini tuo :
  35. tu exaudies de cælo preces eorum, et obsecrationem, et ulciscaris.
  36. Si autem peccaverint tibi (neque enim est homo, qui non peccet) et iratus fueris eis, et tradideris hostibus, et captivos duxerint eos in terram longinquam, vel certe quæ juxta est,
  37. et conversi in corde suo in terra, ad quam captivi ducti fuerant, egerint pœnitentiam, et deprecati te fuerint in terra captivitatis suæ, dicentes : Peccavimus ; inique fecimus, injuste egimus :
  38. et reversi fuerint ad te in toto corde suo, et in tota anima sua, in terra captivitatis suæ, ad quam ducti sunt, adorabunt te contra viam terræ suæ, quam dedisti patribus eorum, et urbis, quam elegisti, et domus, quam ædificavi nomini tuo :
  39. tu exaudies de cælo, hoc est, de firmo habitaculo tuo, preces eorum, et facias judicium, et dimittas populo tuo, quamvis peccatori :
  40. tu es enim Deus meus : aperiantur, quæso, oculi tui, et aures tuæ intentæ sint ad orationem, quæ fit in loco isto.
  41. Nunc igitur consurge, Domine Deus, in requiem tuam, tu et arca fortitudinis tuæ : sacerdotes tui, Domine Deus, induantur salutem, et sancti tui lætentur in bonis.
  42. Domine Deus, ne averteris faciem christi tui : memento misericordiarum David servi tui.
2 Chronicles 6 Text (KJV)
  1. Then said Solomon, The LORD hath said that he would dwell in the thick darkness.
  2. But I have built an house of habitation for thee, and a place for thy dwelling for ever.
  3. And the king turned his face, and blessed the whole congregation of Israel: and all the congregation of Israel stood.
  4. And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, who hath with his hands fulfilled that which he spake with his mouth to my father David, saying,
  5. Since the day that I brought forth my people out of the land of Egypt I chose no city among all the tribes of Israel to build an house in, that my name might be there; neither chose I any man to be a ruler over my people Israel:
  6. But I have chosen Jerusalem, that my name might be there; and have chosen David to be over my people Israel.
  7. Now it was in the heart of David my father to build an house for the name of the LORD God of Israel.
  8. But the LORD said to David my father, Forasmuch as it was in thine heart to build an house for my name, thou didst well in that it was in thine heart:
  9. Notwithstanding thou shalt not build the house; but thy son which shall come forth out of thy loins, he shall build the house for my name.
  10. The LORD therefore hath performed his word that he hath spoken: for I am risen up in the room of David my father, and am set on the throne of Israel, as the LORD promised, and have built the house for the name of the LORD God of Israel.
  11. And in it have I put the ark, wherein is the covenant of the LORD, that he made with the children of Israel.
  12. And he stood before the altar of the LORD in the presence of all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands:
  13. For Solomon had made a brasen scaffold, of five cubits long, and five cubits broad, and three cubits high, and had set it in the midst of the court: and upon it he stood, and kneeled down upon his knees before all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven,
  14. And said, O LORD God of Israel, there is no God like thee in the heaven, nor in the earth; which keepest covenant, and shewest mercy unto thy servants, that walk before thee with all their hearts:
  15. Thou which hast kept with thy servant David my father that which thou hast promised him; and spakest with thy mouth, and hast fulfilled it with thine hand, as it is this day.
  16. Now therefore, O LORD God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my father that which thou hast promised him, saying, There shall not fail thee a man in my sight to sit upon the throne of Israel; yet so that thy children take heed to their way to walk in my law, as thou hast walked before me.
  17. Now then, O LORD God of Israel, let thy word be verified, which thou hast spoken unto thy servant David.
  18. But will God in very deed dwell with men on the earth? behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house which I have built!
  19. Have respect therefore to the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry and the prayer which thy servant prayeth before thee:
  20. That thine eyes may be open upon this house day and night, upon the place whereof thou hast said that thou wouldest put thy name there; to hearken unto the prayer which thy servant prayeth toward this place.
  21. Hearken therefore unto the supplications of thy servant, and of thy people Israel, which they shall make toward this place: hear thou from thy dwelling place, even from heaven; and when thou hearest, forgive.
  22. If a man sin against his neighbour, and an oath be laid upon him to make him swear, and the oath come before thine altar in this house;
  23. Then hear thou from heaven, and do, and judge thy servants, by requiting the wicked, by recompensing his way upon his own head; and by justifying the righteous, by giving him according to his righteousness.
  24. And if thy people Israel be put to the worse before the enemy, because they have sinned against thee; and shall return and confess thy name, and pray and make supplication before thee in this house;
  25. Then hear thou from the heavens, and forgive the sin of thy people Israel, and bring them again unto the land which thou gavest to them and to their fathers.
  26. When the heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; yet if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their sin, when thou dost afflict them;
  27. Then hear thou from heaven, and forgive the sin of thy servants, and of thy people Israel, when thou hast taught them the good way, wherein they should walk; and send rain upon thy land, which thou hast given unto thy people for an inheritance.
  28. If there be dearth in the land, if there be pestilence, if there be blasting, or mildew, locusts, or caterpillers; if their enemies besiege them in the cities of their land; whatsoever sore or whatsoever sickness there be:
  29. Then what prayer or what supplication soever shall be made of any man, or of all thy people Israel, when every one shall know his own sore and his own grief, and shall spread forth his hands in this house:
  30. Then hear thou from heaven thy dwelling place, and forgive, and render unto every man according unto all his ways, whose heart thou knowest; (for thou only knowest the hearts of the children of men:)
  31. That they may fear thee, to walk in thy ways, so long as they live in the land which thou gavest unto our fathers.
  32. Moreover concerning the stranger, which is not of thy people Israel, but is come from a far country for thy great name's sake, and thy mighty hand, and thy stretched out arm; if they come and pray in this house;
  33. Then hear thou from the heavens, even from thy dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for; that all people of the earth may know thy name, and fear thee, as doth thy people Israel, and may know that this house which I have built is called by thy name.
  34. If thy people go out to war against their enemies by the way that thou shalt send them, and they pray unto thee toward this city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name;
  35. Then hear thou from the heavens their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause.
  36. If they sin against thee, (for there is no man which sinneth not,) and thou be angry with them, and deliver them over before their enemies, and they carry them away captives unto a land far off or near;
  37. Yet if they bethink themselves in the land whither they are carried captive, and turn and pray unto thee in the land of their captivity, saying, We have sinned, we have done amiss, and have dealt wickedly;
  38. If they return to thee with all their heart and with all their soul in the land of their captivity, whither they have carried them captives, and pray toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, and toward the city which thou hast chosen, and toward the house which I have built for thy name:
  39. Then hear thou from the heavens, even from thy dwelling place, their prayer and their supplications, and maintain their cause, and forgive thy people which have sinned against thee.
  40. Now, my God, let, I beseech thee, thine eyes be open, and let thine ears be attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.
  41. Now therefore arise, O LORD God, into thy resting place, thou, and the ark of thy strength: let thy priests, O LORD God, be clothed with salvation, and let thy saints rejoice in goodness.
  42. O LORD God, turn not away the face of thine anointed: remember the mercies of David thy servant.
