2 Chronicles 7 Text (WEB)
  1. 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 Yahweh filled the house.
  2. The priests could not enter into the house of Yahweh, because the glory of Yahweh filled Yahweh's house.
  3. All the children of Israel looked on, when the fire came down, and the glory of Yahweh was on the house; and they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground on the pavement, and worshiped, and gave thanks to Yahweh, [saying], "For he is good; for his loving kindness endures for ever."
  4. Then the king and all the people offered sacrifice before Yahweh.
  5. King Solomon offered a sacrifice of twenty-two thousand head of cattle, and a hundred and twenty thousand sheep. So the king and all the people dedicated the house of God.
  6. The priests stood, according to their positions; the Levites also with instruments of music of Yahweh, which David the king had made to give thanks to Yahweh, when David praised by their ministry, saying "For his loving kindness endures for ever." The priests sounded trumpets before them; and all Israel stood.
  7. Moreover Solomon made the middle of the court holy that was before the house of Yahweh; for there he offered the burnt offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings, because the bronze altar which Solomon had made was not able to receive the burnt offering, and the meal offering, and the fat.
  8. So Solomon held the feast at that time seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great assembly, from the entrance of Hamath to the brook of Egypt.
  9. On the eighth day they held a solemn assembly: for they kept the dedication of the altar seven days, and the feast seven days.
  10. On the three and twentieth day of the seventh month he sent the people away to their tents, joyful and glad of heart for the goodness that Yahweh had shown to David, and to Solomon, and to Israel his people.
  11. Thus Solomon finished the house of Yahweh, and the king's house: and he successfully completed all that came into Solomon's heart to make in the house of Yahweh, and in his own house.
  12. Yahweh appeared to Solomon by night, and said to him, "I have heard your prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for a house of sacrifice.
  13. "If I shut up the sky so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;
  14. if my people, who 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.
  15. Now my eyes shall be open, and my ears attentive, to the prayer that is made in this place.
  16. For now have I chosen and made this house holy, that my name may be there forever; and my eyes and my heart shall be there perpetually.
  17. "As for you, if you will walk before me as David your father walked, and do according to all that I have commanded you, and will keep my statutes and my ordinances;
  18. then I will establish the throne of your kingdom, according as I covenanted with David your father, saying, 'There shall not fail you a man to be ruler in Israel.'
  19. But if you 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;
  20. then I will pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have made holy for my name, I will cast out of my sight, and I will make it a proverb and a byword among all peoples.
  21. This house, which is so high, everyone who passes by it shall be astonished, and shall say, 'Why has Yahweh done thus to this land, and to this house?'
  22. They shall answer, 'Because they abandoned Yahweh, the God of their fathers, who brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, and took other gods, worshiped them, and served them. Therefore he has brought all this evil on them.'"
2 Chronicles 7 Text (Hebrew)
  1. וככלות שלמה להתפלל והאש ירדה מהשמים ותאכל העלה והזבחים וכבוד יהוה מלא את־הבית׃
  2. ולא יכלו הכהנים לבוא אל־בית יהוה כי־מלא כבוד־יהוה את־בית יהוה׃
  3. וכל בני ישראל ראים ברדת האש וכבוד יהוה על־הבית ויכרעו אפים ארצה על־הרצפה וישתחוו והודות ליהוה כי טוב כי לעולם חסדו׃
  4. והמלך וכל־העם זבחים זבח לפני יהוה׃ ס
  5. ויזבח המלך שלמה את־זבח הבקר עשרים ושנים אלף וצאן מאה ועשרים אלף ויחנכו את־בית האלהים המלך וכל־העם׃
  6. והכהנים על־משמרותם עמדים והלוים בכלי־שיר יהוה אשר עשה דויד המלך להדות ליהוה כי־לעולם חסדו בהלל דויד בידם והכהנים נגדם וכל־ישראל עמדים׃ ס
  7. ויקדש שלמה את־תוך החצר אשר לפני בית־יהוה כי־עשה שם העלות ואת חלבי השלמים כי־מזבח הנחשת אשר עשה שלמה לא יכול להכיל את־העלה ואת־המנחה ואת־החלבים׃
  8. ויעש שלמה את־החג בעת ההיא שבעת ימים וכל־ישראל עמו קהל גדול מאד מלבוא חמת עד־נחל מצרים׃
  9. ויעשו ביום השמיני עצרת כי חנכת המזבח עשו שבעת ימים והחג שבעת ימים׃
  10. וביום עשרים ושלשה לחדש השביעי שלח את־העם לאהליהם שמחים וטובי לב על־הטובה אשר עשה יהוה לדויד ולשלמה ולישראל עמו׃
  11. ויכל שלמה את־בית יהוה ואת־בית המלך ואת כל־הבא על־לב שלמה לעשות בבית־יהוה ובביתו הצליח׃ ף
  12. וירא יהוה אל־שלמה בלילה ויאמר לו שמעתי את־תפלתך ובחרתי במקום הזה לי לבית זבח׃
  13. הן אעצר השמים ולא־יהיה מטר והן־אצוה על־חגב לאכול הארץ ואם־אשלח דבר בעמי׃
  14. ויכנעו עמי אשר נקרא־שמי עליהם ויתפללו ויבקשו פני וישבו מדרכיהם הרעים ואני אשמע מן־השמים ואסלח לחטאתם וארפא את־ארצם׃
  15. עתה עיני יהיו פתחות ואזני קשבות לתפלת המקום הזה׃
  16. ועתה בחרתי והקדשתי את־הבית הזה להיות־שמי שם עד־עולם והיו עיני ולבי שם כל־הימים׃
  17. ואתה אם־תלך לפני כאשר הלך דויד אביך ולעשות ככל אשר צויתיך וחקי ומשפטי תשמור׃
  18. והקימותי את כסא מלכותך כאשר כרתי לדויד אביך לאמר לא־יכרת לך איש מושל בישראל׃
  19. ואם־תשובון אתם ועזבתם חקותי ומצותי אשר נתתי לפניכם והלכתם ועבדתם אלהים אחרים והשתחויתם להם׃
  20. ונתשתים מעל אדמתי אשר נתתי להם ואת־הבית הזה אשר הקדשתי לשמי אשליך מעל פני ואתננו למשל ולשנינה בכל־העמים׃
  21. והבית הזה אשר היה עליון לכל־עבר עליו ישם ואמר במה עשה יהוה ככה לארץ הזאת ולבית הזה׃
  22. ואמרו על אשר עזבו את־יהוה אלהי אבתיהם אשר הוציאם מארץ מצרים ויחזיקו באלהים אחרים וישתחוו להם ויעבדום על־כן הביא עליהם את כל־הרעה הזאת׃ ף

2 Chronicles 7 Text (Latin)
  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.
2 Chronicles 7 Text (KJV)
  1. 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.
  2. And the priests could not enter into the house of the LORD, because the glory of the LORD had filled the LORD's house.
  3. 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.
  4. Then the king and all the people offered sacrifices before the LORD.
  5. 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.
  6. And the priests waited on their offices: the Levites also with instruments of musick 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.
  7. 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 brasen altar which Solomon had made was not able to receive the burnt offerings, and the meat offerings, and the fat.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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 shewed unto David, and to Solomon, and to Israel his people.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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;
  14. 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.
  15. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.
  16. 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.
  17. 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 statues and my judgments;
  18. 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.
  19. 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;
  20. 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.
  21. 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?
  22. 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.
