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 με{T'} 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 1 Scarce had Solomon finished his praying, when fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt-sacrifice, consumed all the victims; the glory of the Lord, too, filled the temple, 2 and the priests might not enter; his own glory was there, filling his own house. 3 The fire that fell, the brightness of the Lord’s visible presence, was seen by all Israel; there on the stone pavement they fell down to earth in worship, crying, Praise the Lord, the Lord is gracious, his mercy endures for ever. 4 King and people offered their victims in the Lord’s presence; 5 the beasts king Solomon slew that day, when he and all the people dedicated the Lord’s house, were twenty-two thousand bulls and a hundred and twenty thousand rams. 6 There stood the priests at their task, and the Levites with the instruments of sacred music, that king David had given them to praise the Lord with, playing David’s own chant of everlasting mercy, while the priests led with their trumpets, and all the people stood around. 7 That day, the king must needs hallow the middle part of the court before the Lord’s house, burning there the burnt-sacrifice and the fat taken from the welcome-victims; the brazen altar he had made would not suffice for these and for the bloodless offerings too. 8 After this, king Solomon spent seven days in keeping the feast of Tabernacles, and with him a great multitude from the whole land of Israel, that stretched from the pass of Emath down to the river of Egypt; 9 and the eighth day he kept as a great holiday, after seven days given up to the temple dedication, and seven to the feast. 10 At last, on the twenty-third day of the month, he sent the people home, rejoicing with full hearts over the mercies the Lord had shewn to David, to Solomon, and to his own people of Israel.[1] 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 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 ἐ{F'} οὓς τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐπικέκληται ἐ{P'} 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 11 When Solomon had finished building the temple, and his own palace, and brought all his plans for one and the other to a prosperous issue, 12 the Lord spoke to him in a vision seen by night. I have listened to thy prayer, he said; this place, none other, shall be the home of my sacrifices. 13 Shut I the heavens, so that no rain should fall, give I charge to the locust to ravage the country-side, send I pestilence to destroy my people; 14 if they, this people of mine, thus dedicated to my name, will betake themselves to my presence in entreaty, and repent of their ill doings, I, in heaven, will listen, will pardon their sins, will bring healing to their country. 15 Open my eyes shall be, my ears attentive to every man’s prayer that here prays to me; 16 I have set this place apart and hallowed it, to be the shrine of my name for all time; never a day but my eyes shall be watching, my heart be attentive here. 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 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 ἐ{P'} αὐτοὺς πᾶσαν τὴν κακίαν ταύτην 17 Do thou guide thy steps, like thy father, as in my presence, do thou fulfil all I command, hold true to observance and decree of mine; 18 and I will raise up a dynasty to follow thee; such was my promise to thy father David, that he should always have an heir to sit on the throne of Israel. 19 But if you are content to turn your backs upon me, neglecting the decrees and commands I have given you, betaking yourselves to the service and the worship of alien gods, 20 then I will pluck you up by the roots out of the land I gave you, and this temple, which I have hallowed as the shrine of my name, shall be thrust away out of my sight; it shall be a proverb and a by-word among the nations. 21 It shall be a monument to the passers-by, and they will ask in wonder, Why has the Lord treated this land, this house so cruelly? 22 And the answer will come, Because they forsook the Lord their God, who rescued their fathers from the land of Egypt, and betook themselves to the worship and service of alien gods; that is why all this ruin has come upon them.[2] 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.
