* And thus the officers provided king Solomon: and [they execute] every one in his month all the orders for the table of the king, they omit nothing. 2α And they carried the barley and the straw for the horses and the chariots to the place where the king might be, each according to his charge. 2β And these [were] the requisite supplies for Solomon: in one day thirty measures of fine flour, and sixty measures of fine pounded meal, 3 and ten choice calves, and twenty pastured oxen, and a hundred sheep, besides stags, and choice fatted does. 4 For he had dominion on this side the river, and he was at peace on all sides round about. 5 And the Lord gave understanding to Solomon, and very much wisdom, and enlargement of heart, as the sand on the seashore. 6 7 8 9 10 And Solomon abounded greatly beyond the wisdom of all the ancients, and beyond all the wise men of Egypt. 11 And he was wiser than all [other] men: and he was wiser than Gaethan the Zarite, and [than] Aenan, and [than] Chalcal and Darala the son of Mal. 12 And Solomon spoke three thousand proverbs, and his songs were five thousand. 13 And he spoke of trees, from the cedar in Libanus even to the hyssop which comes out through the wall: he spoke also of cattle, and of birds, and of reptiles, and of fishes. 14 And all the nations came to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and [ambassadors] from all the kings of the earth, as many as heard of his wisdom. 14a And Solomon took to himself the daughter of Pharao to wife, and brought her into the city of David until he had finished the house of the Lord, and his own house, and the wall of Jerusalem. 14b Then went up Pharao the king of Egypt, and took Gazer, and burnt it and the Chananite dwelling in Mergab; and Pharao gave them as a dowry to his daughter the wife of Solomon: and Solomon rebuilt Gazer. 15 And Chiram king of Tyre sent his servants to anoint Solomon in the room of David his father, because Chiram always loved David. 16 And Solomon sent to Chiram, saying, 17 Thou knewest my father David, that he could not build a house to the name of the Lord my God because of the wars that compassed him about, until the Lord put them under the soles of his feet. 18 And now the Lord my God has given me rest round about; there is no one plotting against [me], and there is no evil trespass [against me]. 19 And, behold, I intend to build a house to the name of the Lord my God, as the Lord God spoke to my father David, saying, Thy son whom I will set on thy throne in thy place, he shall build a house to my name. 20 And now command, and let [men] cut wood for me out of Libanus: and, behold, my servants [shall be] with thy servants, and I will give thee the wages of thy service, according to all that thou shalt say, because thou knowest that we have no one skilled in cutting timber like the Sidonians. 21 And it came to pass, as soon as Chiram heard the words of Solomon, that he rejoiced greatly, and said, Blessed [be] God to-day, who has given to David a wise son over this numerous people. 22 And he sent to Solomon, saying, I have listened concerning all that thou hast sent to me for I will do all thy will: [as for] timber of cedar and fir, 23 my servants shall bring them down from Libanus to the sea: I will form them [into] rafts, [and bring them] to the place which thou shalt send to me [about]; and I will land them there, and thou shalt take [them] up: and thou shalt do my will, in giving bread to my household. 24 So Chiram gave to Solomon cedars, and fir trees, and all his desire. 25 And Solomon gave to Chiram twenty thousand measures of wheat as food for his house, and twenty thousand baths of beaten oil thus Solomon gave to Chiram yearly. 26 And the Lord gave wisdom to Solomon as he promised him; and there was peace between Chiram and Solomon, and they made a covenant between them. 27 And the king raised a levy out of all Israel, and the levy was thirty thousand men. 28 And he sent them to Libanus, ten thousand taking turn every month: they were a month in Libanus and two months at home: and Adoniram [was] over the levy. 29 And Solomon had seventy thousand bearers of burdens, and eighty thousand hewers of stone in the mountain; 30 besides the rulers that were appointed over the works of Solomon, [there were] three thousand six hundred masters who wrought in the works. 31 32 And they prepared the stones and the timber [during] three years.


* 1α And Solomon reigned over all kingdoms from the river unto the land of the Philistines, and unto the border of Egypt: they brought presents, and served Solomon all the days of his life.

1β And thus the officers provided king Solomon: and [they execute] every one in his month all the orders for the table of the king, they omit nothing.
* ΚΑΙ ἐχορήγουν οἱ καθεσταμένοι οὕτως τῷ βασιλεῖ Σαλωμὼν καὶ πάντα τὰ διαγγέλματα ἐπὶ τὴν τράπεζαν τοῦ βασιλέως, ἕκαστος μῆνα αὐτοῦ, οὐ παραλλάσσουσι λόγον· 2α καὶ τὰς κριθὰς καὶ τὸ ἄχυρον τοῖς ἵπποις καὶ τοῖς ἅρμασιν ᾖρον εἰς τὸν τόπον, οὗ ἂν ᾖ ὁ βασιλεύς, ἕκαστος κατὰ τὴν σύνταξιν αὐτοῦ. 2β καὶ ταῦτα τὰ δέοντα τῷ Σαλωμὼν ἐν ἡμέρᾳ μιᾷ· τριάκοντα κόροι σεμιδάλεως καὶ ἑξήκοντα κόροι ἀλεύρου κεκοπανισμένου. 3 καὶ δέκα μόσχοι ἐκλεκτοὶ καὶ εἴκοσι βόες νομάδες καὶ ἑκατὸν πρόβατα ἐκτὸς ἐλάφων καὶ δορκάδων ἐκλεκτῶν, σιτευτά· 4 ὅτι ἦν ἄρχων πέραν ποταμοῦ, καὶ ἦν αὐτῷ εἰρήνη ἐκ πάντων τῶν μερῶν κυκλόθεν. 5 Καὶ ἔδωκε Κύριος φρόνησιν τῷ Σαλωμὼν καὶ σοφίαν πολλὴν σφόδρα καὶ χύμα καρδίας ὡς ἡ ἄμμος ἡ παρὰ τὴν θάλασσαν. 6 7 8 9 10 καὶ ἐπληθύνθη Σαλωμὼν σφόδρα ὑπὲρ τὴν φρόνησιν πάντων ἀρχαίων ἀνθρώπων καὶ ὑπὲρ πάντας φρονίμους Αἰγύπτου 11 καὶ ἐσοφίσατο ὑπὲρ πάντας τοὺς ἀνθρώπους καὶ ἐσοφίσατο ὑπὲρ Γαιθὰν τὸν Ζαρείτην καὶ τὸν Αἰνὰν καὶ τὸν Χαλκὰλ καὶ Δαρδὰ υἱοὺς Μάλ. 12 καὶ ἐλάλησε Σαλωμὼν τρισχιλίας παραβολάς, καὶ ἦσαν ᾠδαὶ αὐτοῦ πεντακισχίλιαι. 13 καὶ ἐλάλησεν ὑπὲρ τῶν ξύλων ἀπὸ τῆς κέδρου τῆς ἐν τῷ Λιβάνῳ καὶ ἕως τῆς ὑσσώπου τῆς ἐκπορευομένης διὰ τοῦ τοίχου καὶ ἐλάλησε περὶ τῶν κτηνῶν καὶ περὶ τῶν πετεινῶν καὶ περὶ τῶν ἑρπετῶν καὶ περὶ τῶν ἰχθύων. 14 καὶ παρεγίνοντο πάντες οἱ λαοὶ ἀκοῦσαι τῆς σοφίας Σαλωμὼν καὶ ἐλάμβανε δῶρα παρὰ πάντων τῶν βασιλέων τῆς γῆς, ὅσοι ἤκουον τῆς σοφίας αὐτοῦ. 14α Καὶ ἔλαβε Σαλωμὼν τὴν θυγατέρα Φαραὼ αὐτῷ εἰς γυναῖκα καὶ εἰσήγαγεν αὐτὴν εἰς τὴν πόλιν Δαυὶδ ἕως συντελέσαι αὐτὸν τὸν οἶκον Κυρίου καὶ τὸν οἶκον ἑαυτοῦ καὶ τὸ τεῖχος ῾Ιερουσαλήμ. 14β τότε ἀνέβη Φαραὼ βασιλεὺς Αἰγύπτου καὶ προκατελάβετο τὴν Γαζὲρ καὶ ἐνεπύρισεν αὐτὴν καὶ τὸν Χανανίτην τὸν κατοικοῦντα ἐν Μεργάβ, καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτὰς Φαραὼ ἀποστολὰς θυγατρὶ αὐτοῦ γυναικὶ Σαλωμών, καὶ Σαλωμὼν ᾠκοδόμησε τὴν Γαζέρ. 15 Καὶ ἀπέστειλε Χιρὰμ βασιλεὺς Τύρου τοὺς παῖδας αὐτοῦ χρῖσαι τὸν Σαλωμὼν ἀντὶ Δαυὶδ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ, ὅτι ἀγαπῶν ἦν Χιρὰμ τὸν Δαυὶδ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας. 16 καὶ ἀπέστειλε Σαλωμὼν πρὸς Χιρὰμ λέγων· 17 σὺ οἶδας τὸν πατέρα μου Δαυὶδ ὅτι οὐκ ἠδύνατο οἰκοδομῆσαι οἶκον τῷ ὀνόματι Κυρίου Θεοῦ μου ἀπὸ προσώπου τῶν πολέμων τῶν κυκλωσάντων αὐτὸν ἕως τοῦ δοῦναι Κύριον αὐτοὺς ὑπὸ τὰ ἴχνη τῶν ποδῶν αὐτοῦ. 18 καὶ νῦν ἀνέπαυσε Κύριος ὁ Θεός μου ἐμοὶ κυκλόθεν· οὐκ ἔστιν ἐπίβουλος καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἁμάρτημα πονηρόν. 19 καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ λέγω οἰκοδομῆσαι οἶκον τῷ ὀνόματι Κυρίου Θεοῦ μου, καθὼς ἐλάλησε Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς πρὸς Δαυὶδ τὸν πατέρα μου, λέγων· ὁ υἱός σου, ὃν δώσω ἀντὶ σοῦ ἐπὶ τὸν θρόνον σου, οὗτος οἰκοδομήσει τὸν οἴκον τῷ ὀνόματί μου. 20 καὶ νῦν ἔντειλαι καὶ κοψάτωσάν μοι ξύλα ἐκ τοῦ Λιβάνου, καὶ ἰδοὺ οἱ δοῦλοί μου μετὰ τῶν δούλων σου· καὶ τὸν μισθὸν δουλείας σου δώσω σοι κατὰ πάντα, ὅσα ἂν εἴπῃς, ὅτι σὺ οἶδας ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν ἡμῖν εἰδὼς ξύλα κόπτειν καθὼς οἱ Σιδώνιοι. 21 καὶ ἐγενήθη καθὼς ἤκουσε Χιρὰμ τῶν λόγων Σαλωμών, ἐχάρη σφόδρα καὶ εἶπεν· εὐλογητὸς ὁ Θεὸς σήμερον, ὃς ἔδωκε τῷ Δαυὶδ υἱὸν φρόνιμον ἐπὶ τὸν λαὸν τὸν πολὺν τοῦτον 22 καὶ ἀπέστειλε πρὸς Σαλωμὼν λέγων· ἀκήκοα περὶ πάντων, ὧν ἀπέσταλκας πρός με· ἐγὼ ποιήσω πᾶν θέλημά σου, ξύλα κέδρινα καὶ πεύκινα· 23 οἱ δοῦλοί μου κατάξουσιν αὐτὰ ἐκ τοῦ Λιβάνου εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν, ἐγὼ θήσομαι αὐτὰ σχεδίας ἕως τοῦ τόπου, οὗ ἐὰν ἀποστείλῃς πρός με, καὶ ἐκτινάξω αὐτὰ ἐκεῖ, καὶ σὺ ἀρεῖς· καὶ ποιήσεις τὸ θέλημά μου, τοῦ δοῦναι ἄρτους τῷ οἴκῳ μου. 24 καὶ ἦν Χιρὰμ διδοὺς τῷ Σαλωμὼν κέδρους καὶ πεύκας καὶ πᾶν θέλημα αὐτοῦ. 25 καὶ Σαλωμὼν ἔδωκε τῷ Χιρὰμ εἴκοσι χιλιάδας κόρους πυροῦ καὶ μαχεὶρ τῷ οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ καὶ εἴκοσι χιλιάδας βαὶθ ἐλαίου κεκομμένου· κατὰ τοῦτο ἐδίδου Σαλωμὼν τῷ Χιρὰμ κατ᾿ ἐνιαυτόν. 26 καὶ Κύριος ἔδωκε σοφίαν τῷ Σαλωμών, καθὼς ἐλάλησεν αὐτῷ· καὶ ἦν εἰρήνη ἀνὰ μέσον Χιρὰμ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον Σαλωμών, καὶ διέθεντο διαθήκην ἀνὰ μέσον αὐτῶν. 27 καὶ ἀνήνεγκεν ὁ βασιλεὺς φόρον ἐκ παντὸς ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἦν ὁ φόρος τριάκοντα χιλιάδες ἀνδρῶν. 28 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν αὐτοὺς εἰς τὸν Λίβανον, δέκα χιλιάδες ἐν τῷ μηνί, ἀλλασσόμενοι, μῆνα ἦσαν ἐν τῷ Λιβάνῳ καὶ δύο μῆνας ἐν οἴκῳ αὐτῶν· καὶ ᾿Αδωνιρὰμ ἐπὶ τοῦ φόρου. 29 καὶ ἦν τῷ Σαλωμὼν ἑβδομήκοντα χιλιάδες αἴροντες ἄρσιν καὶ ὀγδοήκοντα χιλιάδες λατόμων ἐν τῷ ὄρει, 30 χωρὶς τῶν ἀρχόντων τῶν καθεσταμένων ἐπὶ τῶν ἔργων τῷ Σαλωμών, τρεῖς χιλιάδες καὶ ἑξακόσιοι ἐπιστάται οἱ ποιοῦντες τὰ ἔργα. 31 32 καὶ ἡτοίμασαν τοὺς λίθους καὶ τὰ ξύλα τρία ἔτη.


* 1α Καὶ Σαλωμὼν ἦν ἐξουσιάζων ἐν πᾶσι τοῖς βασιλείοις ἀπὸ τοῦ ποταμοῦ γῆς ἀλλοφύλων καὶ ἕως ὁρίου Αἰγύπτου προσεγγίζοντες δῶρα καὶ δουλεύοντες τῷ Σαλωμὼν πάσας ἡμέρας ζωῆς αὐτοῦ.

1β ΚΑΙ ἐχορήγουν οἱ καθεσταμένοι οὕτως τῷ βασιλεῖ Σαλωμὼν καὶ πάντα τὰ διαγγέλματα ἐπὶ τὴν τράπεζαν τοῦ βασιλέως, ἕκαστος μῆνα αὐτοῦ, οὐ παραλλάσσουσι λόγον·
