1 Chronicles 29


1  Furthermore David1732 the king4428 said559 unto all3605 the congregation,6951 Solomon8010 my son,1121 whom alone259 God430 hath chosen,977 is yet young5288 and tender,7390 and the work4399 is great:1419 for3588 the palace1002 is not3808 for man,120 but3588 for the LORD3068 God.430

2  Now I have prepared3559 with all3605 my might3581 for the house1004 of my God430 the gold2091 for things to be made of gold,2091 and the silver3701 for things of silver,3701 and the brass5178 for things of brass,5178 the iron1270 for things of iron,1270 and wood6086 for things of wood;6086 onyx7718 stones,68 and stones to be set,4394 glistering6320 stones,68 and of divers colors,7553 and all manner3605 of precious3368 stones,68 and marble7893 stones68 in abundance.7230

3  Moreover,5750 because I have set my affection7521 to the house1004 of my God,430 I have3426 of mine own proper good,5459 of gold2091 and silver,3701 which I have given5414 to the house1004 of my God,430 over4605 and above all4480 3605 that I have prepared3559 for the holy6944 house,1004

4  Even three7969 thousand505 talents3603 of gold,2091 of the gold4480 2091 of Ophir,211 and seven7651 thousand505 talents3603 of refined2212 silver,3701 to overlay2902 the walls7023 of the houses1004 withal:

5  The gold2091 for things of gold,2091 and the silver3701 for things of silver,3701 and for all manner3605 of work4399 to be made by the hands3027 of artificers.2796 And who4310 then is willing5068 to consecrate his service4390 3027 this day3117 unto the LORD?3068

6  Then the chief8269 of the fathers1 and princes8269 of the tribes7626 of Israel,3478 and the captains8269 of thousands505 and of hundreds,3967 with the rulers8269 of the king's4428 work,4399 offered willingly,5068

7  And gave5414 for the service5656 of the house1004 of God430 of gold2091 five2568 thousand505 talents3603 and ten thousand7239 drams,150 and of silver3701 ten6235 thousand505 talents,3603 and of brass5178 eighteen thousand7239 8083 505 talents,3603 and one hundred3967 thousand505 talents3603 of iron.1270

8  And they with854 whom precious stones68 were found4672 gave5414 them to the treasure214 of the house1004 of the LORD,3068 by5921 the hand3027 of Jehiel3171 the Gershonite.1649

9  Then the people5971 rejoiced,8055 for5921 that they offered willingly,5068 because3588 with perfect8003 heart3820 they offered willingly5068 to the LORD:3068 and David1732 the king4428 also1571 rejoiced8055 with great1419 joy.8057

10  Wherefore David1732 blessed1288 853 the LORD3068 before5869 all3605 the congregation:6951 and David1732 said,559 Blessed1288 be thou,859 LORD3068 God430 of Israel3478 our father,1 forever4480 5769 and ever.5704 5769

11  Thine, O LORD,3068 is the greatness,1420 and the power,1369 and the glory,8597 and the victory,5331 and the majesty:1935 for3588 all3605 that is in the heaven8064 and in the earth776 is thine; thine is the kingdom,4467 O LORD,3068 and thou art exalted4984 as head7218 above all.3605

12  Both riches6239 and honor3519 come of4480 6440 thee, and thou859 reignest4910 over all;3605 and in thine hand3027 is power3581 and might;1369 and in thine hand3027 it is to make great,1431 and to give strength2388 unto all.3605

13  Now6258 therefore, our God,430 we587 thank3034 thee, and praise1984 thy glorious8597 name.8034

14  But3588 who4310 am I,589 and what4310 is my people,5971 that3588 we should be able6113 3581 to offer so willingly5068 after this sort?2063 for3588 all things3605 come of4480 thee, and of thine own4480 3027 have we given5414 thee.

15  For3588 we587 are strangers1616 before6440 thee, and sojourners,8453 as were all3605 our fathers:1 our days3117 on5921 the earth776 are as a shadow,6738 and there is none369 abiding.4723

16  O LORD3068 our God,430 all3605 this2088 store1995 that834 we have prepared3559 to build1129 thee a house1004 for thine holy6944 name8034 cometh of thine hand,4480 3027 and is all3605 thine own.

17  I know3045 also, my God,430 that3588 thou859 triest974 the heart,3824 and hast pleasure7521 in uprightness.3476 As for me,589 in the uprightness4339 of mine heart3824 I have willingly offered5068 all3605 these things:428 and now6258 have I seen7200 with joy8057 thy people,5971 which are present4672 here,6311 to offer willingly5068 unto thee.

18  O LORD3068 God430 of Abraham,85 Isaac,3327 and of Israel,3478 our fathers,1 keep8104 this2063 forever5769 in the imagination3336 of the thoughts4284 of the heart3824 of thy people,5971 and prepare3559 their heart3824 unto413 thee:

19  And give5414 unto Solomon8010 my son1121 a perfect8003 heart,3824 to keep8104 thy commandments,4687 thy testimonies,5715 and thy statutes,2706 and to do6213 all3605 these things, and to build1129 the palace,1002 for the which834 I have made provision.3559

20  And David1732 said559 to all3605 the congregation,6951 Now4994 bless1288 853 the LORD3068 your God.430 And all3605 the congregation6951 blessed1288 the LORD3068 God430 of their fathers,1 and bowed down their heads,6915 and worshiped7812 the LORD,3068 and the king.4428

21  And they sacrificed2076 sacrifices2077 unto the LORD,3068 and offered5927 burnt offerings5930 unto the LORD,3068 on the morrow4283 after that1931 day,3117 even a thousand505 bullocks,6499 a thousand505 rams,352 and a thousand505 lambs,3532 with their drink offerings,5262 and sacrifices2077 in abundance7230 for all3605 Israel:3478

22  And did eat398 and drink8354 before6440 the LORD3068 on that1931 day3117 with great1419 gladness.8057 And they made4427 Solomon8010 the son1121 of David1732 king the second time,8145 and anointed4886 him unto the LORD3068 to be the chief governor,5057 and Zadok6659 to be priest.3548

23  Then Solomon8010 sat3427 on5921 the throne3678 of the LORD3068 as king4428 instead of8478 David1732 his father,1 and prospered;6743 and all3605 Israel3478 obeyed8085 413 him.

24  And all3605 the princes,8269 and the mighty men,1368 and all3605 the sons1121 likewise1571 of king4428 David,1732 submitted5414 3027 themselves unto8478 Solomon8010 the king.4428

25  And the LORD3068 magnified1431 853 Solomon8010 exceedingly4605 in the sight5869 of all3605 Israel,3478 and bestowed5414 upon5921 him such royal4438 majesty1935 as834 had not3808 been1961 on5921 any3605 king4428 before6440 him in5921 Israel.3478

26  Thus David1732 the son1121 of Jesse3448 reigned4427 over5921 all3605 Israel.3478

27  And the time3117 that834 he reigned4427 over5921 Israel3478 was forty705 years;8141 seven7651 years8141 reigned4427 he in Hebron,2275 and thirty7970 and three7969 years reigned4427 he in Jerusalem.3389

28  And he died4191 in a good old age,7872 2896 full7649 of days,3117 riches,6239 and honor:3519 and Solomon8010 his son1121 reigned4427 in his stead.8478

29  Now the acts1697 of David1732 the king,4428 first7223 and last,314 behold,2009 they are written3789 in5921 the book1697 of Samuel8050 the seer,7203 and in5921 the book1697 of Nathan5416 the prophet,5030 and in5921 the book1697 of Gad1410 the seer,2374

30  With5973 all3605 his reign4438 and his might,1369 and the times6256 that834 went over5674 5921 him, and over5921 Israel,3478 and over5921 all3605 the kingdoms4467 of the countries.776


1 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ ὁ βασιλεὺς πάσῃ τῇ ἐκκλησίᾳ Σαλωμων ὁ υἱός μου εἷς ὃν ᾑρέτικεν ἐν αὐτῷ κύριος νέος καὶ ἁπαλός καὶ τὸ ἔργον μέγα ὅτι οὐκ ἀνθρώπῳ ἡ οἰκοδομή ἀλλ᾽ ἢ κυρίῳ θεῷ

2 κατὰ πᾶσαν τὴν δύναμιν ἡτοίμακα εἰς οἶκον θεοῦ μου χρυσίον ἀργύριον χαλκόν σίδηρον ξύλα λίθους σοομ καὶ πληρώσεως καὶ λίθους πολυτελεῖς καὶ ποικίλους καὶ πάντα λίθον τίμιον καὶ πάριον πολύν

3 καὶ ἔτι ἐν τῷ εὐδοκῆσαί με ἐν οἴκῳ θεοῦ μου ἔστιν μοι ὃ περιπεποίημαι χρυσίον καὶ ἀργύριον καὶ ἰδοὺ δέδωκα εἰς οἶκον θεοῦ μου εἰς ὕψος ἐκτὸς ὧν ἡτοίμακα εἰς τὸν οἶκον τῶν ἁγίων

4 τρισχίλια τάλαντα χρυσίου τοῦ ἐκ Σουφιρ καὶ ἑπτακισχίλια τάλαντα ἀργυρίου δοκίμου ἐξαλειφθῆναι ἐν αὐτοῖς τοὺς τοίχους τοῦ ἱεροῦ

5 διὰ χειρὸς τεχνιτῶν καὶ τίς ὁ προθυμούμενος πληρῶσαι τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ σήμερον κυρίῳ

6 καὶ προεθυμήθησαν ἄρχοντες τῶν πατριῶν καὶ οἱ ἄρχοντες τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ καὶ οἱ χιλίαρχοι καὶ οἱ ἑκατόνταρχοι καὶ οἱ προστάται τῶν ἔργων καὶ οἱ οἰκονόμοι τοῦ βασιλέως

7 καὶ ἔδωκαν εἰς τὰ ἔργα οἴκου κυρίου χρυσίου τάλαντα πεντακισχίλια καὶ χρυσοῦς μυρίους καὶ ἀργυρίου ταλάντων δέκα χιλιάδας καὶ χαλκοῦ τάλαντα μύρια ὀκτακισχίλια καὶ σιδήρου ταλάντων χιλιάδας ἑκατόν

8 καὶ οἷς εὑρέθη παρ᾽ αὐτοῖς λίθος ἔδωκαν εἰς τὰς ἀποθήκας οἴκου κυρίου διὰ χειρὸς Ιιηλ τοῦ Γηρσωνι

9 καὶ εὐφράνθη ὁ λαὸς ὑπὲρ τοῦ προθυμηθῆναι ὅτι ἐν καρδίᾳ πλήρει προεθυμήθησαν τῷ κυρίῳ καὶ Δαυιδ ὁ βασιλεὺς εὐφράνθη μεγάλως

10 καὶ εὐλόγησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυιδ τὸν κύριον ἐνώπιον τῆς ἐκκλησίας λέγων εὐλογητὸς εἶ κύριε ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ ὁ πατὴρ ἡμῶν ἀπὸ τοῦ αἰῶνος καὶ ἕως τοῦ αἰῶνος

11 σοί κύριε ἡ μεγαλωσύνη καὶ ἡ δύναμις καὶ τὸ καύχημα καὶ ἡ νίκη καὶ ἡ ἰσχύς ὅτι σὺ πάντων τῶν ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς δεσπόζεις ἀπὸ προσώπου σου ταράσσεται πᾶς βασιλεὺς καὶ ἔθνος

12 παρὰ σοῦ ὁ πλοῦτος καὶ ἡ δόξα σὺ πάντων ἄρχεις κύριε ὁ ἄρχων πάσης ἀρχῆς καὶ ἐν χειρί σου ἰσχὺς καὶ δυναστεία καὶ ἐν χειρί σου παντοκράτωρ μεγαλῦναι καὶ κατισχῦσαι τὰ πάντα

13 καὶ νῦν κύριε ἐξομολογούμεθά σοι καὶ αἰνοῦμεν τὸ ὄνομα τῆς καυχήσεώς σου

14 καὶ τίς εἰμι ἐγὼ καὶ τίς ὁ λαός μου ὅτι ἰσχύσαμεν προθυμηθῆναί σοι κατὰ ταῦτα ὅτι σὰ τὰ πάντα καὶ ἐκ τῶν σῶν δεδώκαμέν σοι

15 ὅτι πάροικοί ἐσμεν ἐναντίον σου καὶ παροικοῦντες ὡς πάντες οἱ πατέρες ἡμῶν ὡς σκιὰ αἱ ἡμέραι ἡμῶν ἐπὶ γῆς καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ὑπομονή

16 κύριε ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν πᾶν τὸ πλῆθος τοῦτο ὃ ἡτοίμακα οἰκοδομηθῆναι οἶκον τῷ ὀνόματι τῷ ἁγίῳ σου ἐκ χειρός σού ἐστιν καὶ σοὶ τὰ πάντα

17 καὶ ἔγνων κύριε ὅτι σὺ εἶ ὁ ἐτάζων καρδίας καὶ δικαιοσύνην ἀγαπᾷς ἐν ἁπλότητι καρδίας προεθυμήθην πάντα ταῦτα καὶ νῦν τὸν λαόν σου τὸν εὑρεθέντα ὧδε εἶδον ἐν εὐφροσύνῃ προθυμηθέντα σοι

18 κύριε ὁ θεὸς Αβρααμ καὶ Ισαακ καὶ Ισραηλ τῶν πατέρων ἡμῶν φύλαξον ταῦτα ἐν διανοίᾳ καρδίας λαοῦ σου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα καὶ κατεύθυνον τὰς καρδίας αὐτῶν πρὸς σέ

19 καὶ Σαλωμων τῷ υἱῷ μου δὸς καρδίαν ἀγαθὴν ποιεῖν τὰς ἐντολάς σου καὶ τὰ μαρτύριά σου καὶ τὰ προστάγματά σου καὶ τοῦ ἐπὶ τέλος ἀγαγεῖν τὴν κατασκευὴν τοῦ οἴκου σου

20 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πάσῃ τῇ ἐκκλησίᾳ εὐλογήσατε κύριον τὸν θεὸν ὑμῶν καὶ εὐλόγησεν πᾶσα ἡ ἐκκλησία κύριον τὸν θεὸν τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν καὶ κάμψαντες τὰ γόνατα προσεκύνησαν τῷ κυρίῳ καὶ τῷ βασιλεῖ

21 καὶ ἔθυσεν Δαυιδ τῷ κυρίῳ θυσίας καὶ ἀνήνεγκεν ὁλοκαυτώματα τῷ θεῷ τῇ ἐπαύριον τῆς πρώτης ἡμέρας μόσχους χιλίους κριοὺς χιλίους ἄρνας χιλίους καὶ τὰς σπονδὰς αὐτῶν καὶ θυσίας εἰς πλῆθος παντὶ τῷ Ισραηλ

22 καὶ ἔφαγον καὶ ἔπιον ἐναντίον κυρίου ἐν ἐκείνῃ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ μετὰ χαρᾶς καὶ ἐβασίλευσαν ἐκ δευτέρου τὸν Σαλωμων υἱὸν Δαυιδ καὶ ἔχρισαν αὐτὸν τῷ κυρίῳ εἰς βασιλέα καὶ Σαδωκ εἰς ἱερωσύνην

23 καὶ ἐκάθισεν Σαλωμων ἐπὶ θρόνου Δαυιδ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ εὐδοκήθη καὶ ἐπήκουσαν αὐτοῦ πᾶς Ισραηλ

24 οἱ ἄρχοντες καὶ οἱ δυνάσται καὶ πάντες υἱοὶ τοῦ βασιλέως Δαυιδ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ὑπετάγησαν αὐτῷ

25 καὶ ἐμεγάλυνεν κύριος τὸν Σαλωμων ἐπάνωθεν ἐναντίον παντὸς Ισραηλ καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτῷ δόξαν βασιλέως ὃ οὐκ ἐγένετο ἐπὶ παντὸς βασιλέως ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ

26 καὶ Δαυιδ υἱὸς Ιεσσαι ἐβασίλευσεν ἐπὶ Ισραηλ

27 ἔτη τεσσαράκοντα ἐν Χεβρων ἔτη ἑπτὰ καὶ ἐν Ιερουσαλημ ἔτη τριάκοντα τρία

28 καὶ ἐτελεύτησεν ἐν γήρει καλῷ πλήρης ἡμερῶν πλούτῳ καὶ δόξῃ καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν Σαλωμων υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾽ αὐτοῦ

29 οἱ δὲ λοιποὶ λόγοι τοῦ βασιλέως Δαυιδ οἱ πρότεροι καὶ οἱ ὕστεροι γεγραμμένοι εἰσὶν ἐν λόγοις Σαμουηλ τοῦ βλέποντος καὶ ἐπὶ λόγων Ναθαν τοῦ προφήτου καὶ ἐπὶ λόγων Γαδ τοῦ βλέποντος

30 περὶ πάσης τῆς βασιλείας αὐτοῦ καὶ τῆς δυναστείας αὐτοῦ καὶ οἱ καιροί οἳ ἐγένοντο ἐπ᾽ αὐτῷ καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν Ισραηλ καὶ ἐπὶ πάσας βασιλείας τῆς γῆς

1 Locutusque est David rex ad omnem ecclesiam: Salomonem filium meum unum elegit Deus, adhuc puerum et tenellum: opus namque grande est, neque enim homini præparatur habitatio, sed Deo.

2 Ego autem totis viribus meis præparavi impensas domus Dei mei. Aurum ad vasa aurea, et argentum in argentea, æs in ænea, ferrum in ferrea, ligna ad lignea: et lapides onychinos, et quasi stibinos, et diversorum colorum, omnemque pretiosum lapidem, et marmor Parium abundantissime:

3 et super hæc quæ obtuli in domum Dei mei de peculio meo aurum et argentum, do in templum Dei mei, exceptis his quæ præparavi in ædem sanctam.

4 Tria millia talenta auri de auro Ophir, et septem millia talentorum argenti probatissimi ad deaurandos parietes templi.

5 Et ubicumque opus est aurum de auro, et ubicumque opus est argentum de argento, opera fiant per manus artificum: et si quis sponte offert, impleat manum suam hodie, et offerat quod voluerit Domino.

6 Polliciti sunt itaque principes familiarum, et proceres tribuum Israël, tribuni quoque, et centuriones, et principes possessionum regis.

7 Dederuntque in opera domus Dei auri talenta quinque millia, et solidos decem millia: argenti talenta decem millia, et æris talenta decem et octo millia: ferri quoque centum millia talentorum.

8 Et apud quemcumque inventi sunt lapides, dederunt in thesauros domus Domini per manum Jahiel Gersonitis.

9 Lætatusque est populus cum vota sponte promitterent, quia corde toto offerebant ea Domino: sed et David rex lætatus est gaudio magno.

10 Et benedixit Domino coram universa multitudine, et ait: Benedictus es, Domine Deus Israël patris nostri, ab æterno in æternum.

11 Tua est, Domine, magnificentia, et potentia, et gloria, atque victoria: et tibi laus: cuncta enim quæ in cælo sunt et in terra, tua sunt: tuum, Domine, regnum, et tu es super omnes principes.

12 Tuæ divitiæ, et tua est gloria: tu dominaris omnium. In manu tua virtus et potentia: in manu tua magnitudo, et imperium omnium.

13 Nunc igitur Deus noster, confitemur tibi, et laudamus nomen tuum inclytum.

14 Quis ego, et quis populus meus, ut possimus hæc tibi universa promittere? Tua sunt omnia: et quæ de manu tua accepimus, dedimus tibi.

15 Peregrini enim sumus coram te, et advenæ, sicut omnes patres nostri. Dies nostri quasi umbra super terram, et nulla est mora.

16 Domine Deus noster, omnis hæc copia quam paravimus ut ædificaretur domus nomini sancto tuo, de manu tua est, et tua sunt omnia.

17 Scio, Deus meus, quod probes corda, et simplicitatem diligas, unde et ego in simplicitate cordis mei lætus obtuli universa hæc: et populum tuum qui hic repertus est, vidi cum ingenti gaudio tibi offerre donaria.

18 Domine Deus Abraham, et Isaac, et Israël patrum nostrorum, custodi in æternum hanc voluntatem cordis eorum, et semper in venerationem tui mens ista permaneat.

19 Salomoni quoque filio meo da cor perfectum, ut custodiat mandata tua, testimonia tua, et cæremonias tuas, et faciat universa: et ædificet ædem, cujus impensas paravi.

20 Præcepit autem David universæ ecclesiæ: Benedicite Domino Deo nostro. Et benedixit omnis ecclesia Domino Deo patrum suorum: et inclinaverunt se, et adoraverunt Deum, et deinde regem.

21 Immolaveruntque victimas Domino: et obtulerunt holocausta die sequenti, tauros mille, arietes mille, agnos mille cum libaminibus suis, et universo ritu abundantissime in omnem Israël.

22 Et comederunt, et biberunt coram Domino in die illo cum grandi lætitia. Et unxerunt secundo Salomonem filium David. Unxerunt autem eum Domino in principem, et Sadoc in pontificem.

23 Seditque Salomon super solium Domini in regem pro David patre suo, et cunctis placuit: et paruit illi omnis Israël.

24 Sed et universi principes, et potentes, et cuncti filii regis David dederunt manum, et subjecti fuerunt Salomoni regi.

25 Magnificavit ergo Dominus Salomonem super omnem Israël: et dedit illi gloriam regni, qualem nullus habuit ante eum rex Israël.

26 Igitur David filius Isai regnavit super universum Israël.

27 Et dies quibus regnavit super Israël, fuerunt quadraginta anni: in Hebron regnavit septem annis, et in Jerusalem annis triginta tribus.

28 Et mortuus est in senectute bona, plenus dierum, et divitiis, et gloria: et regnavit Salomon filius ejus pro eo.

29 Gesta autem David regis priora et novissima scripta sunt in libro Samuelis videntis, et in libro Nathan prophetæ, atque in volumine Gad videntis:

30 universique regni ejus, et fortitudinis, et temporum quæ transierunt sub eo, sive in Israël, sive in cunctis regnis terrarum.
