1 And when Solomon had finished praying, then the fire came down from heaven, and devoured the whole-burnt-offerings 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 at that time, for the glory of the Lord filled the house. 3 And all the children of Israel saw the fire descending, and the glory of the Lord was upon the house: and they fell upon their face to the ground on the pavement, and worshipped, and praised the Lord; for [it is] good [to do so], because his mercy [endures] for ever. 4 And the king and all the people [were] offering sacrifices before the Lord. 5 And king Solomon offered a sacrifice of calves twenty and two thousand, of sheep a hundred and twenty thousand: so the king and all the people dedicated the house of God. 6 And the priests were standing at their watches, and the Levites with instruments of music of the Lord, belonging to king David, to give thanks before the Lord, for his mercy [endures] for ever, with the hymns of David, by their ministry: and the priests were blowing the trumpets before them, and all Israel standing. 7 And Solomon consecrated the middle of the court that was in the house of the Lord: for he offered there the whole-burnt-offerings and the fat of the peace-offerings, for the brazen altar which Solomon had made was not sufficient to receive the whole-burnt-offerings, and the meat-offerings, and the fat. 8 And Solomon kept the feast at that time seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great assembly, from the entering in of Aemath, and as far as the river of Egypt. 9 And on the eighth day he kept a solemn assembly: for he kept a feast of seven days as the dedication of the altar. 10 And on the twenty-third day of the seventh month he dismissed the people to their tents, rejoicing, and with a glad heart because of the good deeds which the Lord had done to David, and to Solomon, and to Israel his people. 11 So Solomon finished the house of the Lord, and the king’s house: and in whatever Solomon wished in his heart to do in the house of the Lord and in his own house, he prospered. 12 And the Lord appeared to Solomon by night, and said to him, I have heard thy prayer, and I have chosen this place to myself for a house of sacrifice. 13 If I should restrain the heaven and there should be no rain, and if I should command the locust to devour the trees, and if I should send pestilence upon my people; 14 then if my people, on whom my name is called, should repent, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their evil ways, I also will hear from heaven, and I will be merciful to their sins, and I will heal their land. 15 And now my eyes shall be open, and my ears attentive to the prayer of this place. 16 And now I have chosen and sanctified this house, that my name should be there for ever: and my eyes and my heart shall be there always. 17 And if thou wilt walk before me as David thy father [did], and wilt do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my ordinances and my judgments; 18 then will I establish the throne of thy kingdom, as I covenanted with David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man ruling in Israel. 19 But if ye should turn away, and forsake my ordinances and my commandments, which I have set before you, and go and serve other gods, and worship them; 20 then will I remove you from the land which I gave them; and this house which I have consecrated to my name I will remove out of my sight, and I will make it a proverb and a by-word among all nations. 21 And [as for] this lofty house, every one that passes by it shall be amazed, and shall say, Wherefore has the Lord done [thus] to this land, and to this house? 22 And [men] shall say, Because they forsook the Lord God of their fathers, who brought them out of the land of Egypt, and they attached themselves to other gods, and worshipped them, and served them: and therefore he has brought upon them all this evil. ΚΑΙ ὡς συνετέλεσε Σαλωμὼν προσευχόμενος, καὶ τὸ πῦρ κατέβη ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ κατέφαγε τὰ ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ τὰς θυσίας, καὶ δόξα Κυρίου ἔπλησε τὸν οἶκον. 2 καὶ οὐκ ἠδύναντο οἱ ἱερεῖς εἰσελθεῖν εἰς τὸν οἶκον Κυρίου ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ, ὅτι ἔπλησε δόξα Κυρίου τὸν οἶκον. 3 καὶ πάντες οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ 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 ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμὼν τὴν θυσίαν μόσχων εἴκοσι καὶ δύο χιλιάδας καὶ βοσκημάτων ἑκατὸν καὶ εἴκοσι χιλιάδας, καὶ ἐνεκαίνισε 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 Δαυὶδ τοῦ βασιλέως τοῦ ἐξομολογεῖσθαι ἔναντι Κυρίου, ὅτι εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τὸ ἔλεος αὐτοῦ, ἐν ὕμνοις Δαυὶδ διὰ χειρὸς αὐτῶν, καὶ οἱ ἱερεῖς σαλπίζοντες ταῖς σάλπιγξιν ἐναντίον αὐτῶν, καὶ πᾶς ᾿Ισραὴλ ἑστηκώς. 7 καὶ ἡγίασε Σαλωμὼν τὸ μέσον τῆς αὐλῆς τῆς ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου, ὅτι ἐποίησεν ἐκεῖ τὰ ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ τὰ στέατα τῶν σωτηρίων, ὅτι τὸ θυσιαστήριον τὸ χαλκοῦν, ὃ ἐποίησε Σαλωμών, οὐκ ἐξεποίει δέξασθαι τὰ ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ τὰ μαναὰ καὶ τὰ στέατα. 8 καὶ ἐποίησε Σαλωμὼν τὴν ἑορτὴν ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας καὶ πᾶς ᾿Ισραὴλ μετ’ αὐτοῦ, ἐκκλησία μεγάλη σφόδρα ἀπὸ εἰσόδου Αἰμὰθ 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 ἀπέστειλε τὸν λαὸν εἰς τὰ σκηνώματα αὐτῶν εὐφραινομένους καὶ ἀγαθῇ καρδίᾳ ἐπὶ τοῖς ἀγαθοῖς, οἷς ἐποίησε Κύριος τῷ Δαυίδ, καὶ τῷ Σαλωμῶντι καὶ τῷ ᾿Ισραὴλ λαῷ αὐτοῦ. 11 Καὶ συνετέλεσε Σαλωμὼν τὸν οἶκον Κυρίου καὶ τὸν οἶκον τοῦ βασιλέως· καὶ πάντα, ὅσα ἠθέλησεν ἐν τῇ ψυχῇ Σαλωμὼν τοῦ ποιῆσαι ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου καὶ ἐν οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ, εὐωδώθη. 12 καὶ ὤφθη Κύριος τῷ Σαλωμὼν 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 ἐφ’ οὓς ἐπικέκληται τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐπ’ αὐτούς, καὶ προσεύξωνται καὶ ζητήσωσι 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 καὶ 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. 17 καὶ σὺ ἐὰν πορευθῇς ἐναντίον μου ὡς Δαυὶδ ὁ πατήρ σου καὶ ποιήσεις κατὰ πάντα, ἃ ἐνετειλάμην σοι, καὶ τὰ προστάγματά μου καὶ τὰ κρίματά μου φυλάξῃ, 18 καὶ ἀναστήσω τὸν θρόνον τῆς βασιλείας σου, ὡς διεθέμην Δαυὶδ τῷ πατρί σου λέγων· οὐκ ἐξαρθήσεταί σοι ἡγούμενος ἀνὴρ ἐν ᾿Ισραήλ. 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 πᾶσι τοῖς ἔθνεσι. 21 καὶ ὁ οἶκος οὗτος ὁ ὑψηλός, πᾶς ὁ διαπορευόμενος αὐτὸν ἐκστήσεται καὶ ἐρεῖ· χάριν τίνος ἐποίησε Κύριος τῇ γῇ ταύτῃ καὶ τῷ οἴκῳ τούτῳ; 22 καὶ ἐροῦσι· διότι ἐγκατέλιπον Κύριον τὸν Θεόν τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν τὸν ἐξαγαγόντα αὐτοὺς ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἀντελάβοντο θεῶν ἑτέρων καὶ προσεκύνησαν αὐτοῖς καὶ ἐδούλευσαν αὐτοῖς, διὰ τοῦτο ἐπήγαγεν ἐπ’ αὐτούς πᾶσαν τὴν κακίαν ταύτην.
