2 Chronicles 5


The Completion of the House of The LORD

And [4was completed 1all 2the 3work] which Solomon did in the house of the  lord; and Solomon carried in the holy things of David his father, and the silver, and the gold, and all the items; and he put them in a treasury house of the  lord. Then Solomon held an assembly of all the elders of Israel, and all the rulers of the tribes, rulers of the families of the sons of Israel in Jerusalem, to bring the ark of the covenant of the  lord from out of the city of David -- this is Zion. And [4was assembled 5unto 6the 7king 1every 2man 3of Israel] in the holiday -- this the [2month 1seventh]. And [5came 1all 2the 3elders 4of Israel], and [4took 1all 2the 3Levites] the ark. And they brought the ark, and the tent of the testimony, and all the [2items 1holy], the ones in the tent; and [6brought 7it 1the 2priests 3and 4the 5Levites]. And king Solomon, and all the gathering of Israel, and the ones being assembled unto him before the ark were sacrificing calves and sheep, which shall not be counted nor considered because of the multitude. And [3carried in 1the 2priests] the ark of the covenant of the  lord into its place, into the dabir of the house, into the holies of the holies, underneath the wings of the cherubim. And [3were 1the 2cherubim] being opened and spread out of their wings over the place of the ark. And [3covered 1the 2cherubim] the ark, and over its bearing poles on top. And [3projected 1the 2bearing poles], and [5were seen 1the 2tips 3of the 4bearing poles] from the ark of the holies in front of the dabir, and they were not seen outside. And they were there until this day. 10 Nothing was in the ark except the two tablets which Moses stationed at Horeb, which the  lord ordained with the sons of Israel in their coming forth from out of the land of Egypt.

The Glory of The LORD Fills the House

11 And it came to pass in the coming forth of the priests from out of the holy places, (for all the priests being found were sanctified, for they were not then set in order according to daily rotation) 12 and the Levites, the psalm singers, all with the sons of Asaph, of Heman, to Jeduthun, and to their sons, and to their brethren of the ones putting on apparels of fine linen, with cymbals, and with stringed instruments, and with lutes, were standing over against the altar, and with them [4priests 1a hundred 2and 3twenty] trumpeting with the trumpets. 13 And there was one sound in the trumpeting, and in the singing along with stringed instruments, and in the sounding out loud [2voice 1with one] to praise and to make acknowledgement to the  lord. And as they raised up high the voice with the trumpets, and with cymbals, and with instruments for the odes, that they said, Make acknowledgment to the  lord for he is good, for into the eon is his mercy! And the house was filled up of the cloud and of the glory of the  lord. 14 And [3were not able 1the 2priests] to stand to officiate before the face of the cloud, for [3filled up 1the glory 2of the  lord] the house of God.
