Ukungeniswa komtshokotsho wesivumelwano ethempelini

Khona uSolomoni wabuthanisa abadala bakoIsrayeli a , zonke inhloko zezizwe, iziphathamandla zaboyise babantwana bakoIsrayeli, ukuya enkosini uSolomoni eJerusalema, ukuze benyuse umtshokotsho wesivumelwano sikaJehova b  bewukhupha emzini kaDavida, oyiZiyoni c . Wonke amadoda akoIsrayeli asebuthana enkosini uSolomoni emkhosini enyangeni kaEthanimi eyinyanga yesikhombisa d . Labo bonke abadala bakoIsrayeli beza, abapristi bawuphakamisa umtshokotsho wesivumelwano e , bawenyusa umtshokotsho we Nkosi lethente lenhlangano, lazo zonke izitsha ezingcwele ezazisethenteni; abapristi lamaLevi bakwenyusa-ke f . Njalo inkosi uSolomoni lenhlangano yonke yakoIsrayeli eyayibuthene babelayo phambi komtshokotsho behlaba izimvu lezinkabi ezingelakunaniswa lezingelakubalwa ngobunengi g . Abapristi basebewungenisa umtshokotsho wesivumelwano se Nkosi h  endaweni yawo i  endaweni yelizwi yendlu j , engcweleni yezingcwele, ngaphansi kwempiko zamakherubi* k . Ngoba amakherubi elulela impiko zombili phezu kwendawo yomtshokotsho, amakherubi embesa umtshokotsho lemijabo yawo, kuvela phezulu. Basebeselula imijabo ukuze izihloko zemijabo zibonakale endaweni engcwele l  phambi kwendawo yelizwi, kodwa yayingabonakali ngaphandle; njalo ikhona lapho kuze kube lamuhla m . Kwakungelalutho emtshokotshweni, ngaphandle kwezibhebhe zamatshe ezimbili uMozisi azifaka khona eHorebe n  mhla i Nkosi o  isenza khona isivumelwano labantwana bakoIsrayeli ekuphumeni kwabo elizweni leGibhithe p . 10 Kwasekusithi ekuphumeni kwabapristi endaweni engcwele iyezi layigcwalisa indlu ye Nkosi; 11 ngakho abapristi babengelakho ukuma ukuthi bakhonze ngenxa yeyezi, ngoba inkazimulo ye Nkosi yayigcwalise indlu ye Nkosi q .

12 Ngalesosikhathi uSolomoni wathi r : I Nkosi yathi izahlala emnyameni onzima s . 13 Ngikwakhele lokukwakhela indlu t , indawo yokuhlala, indawo emisiweyo yokuhlala kwakho laphakade u . 14 Inkosi yasitshibilikisa ubuso bayo, yalibusisa ibandla lonke lakoIsrayeli; lebandla lonke lakoIsrayeli lalimi v . 15 Yasisithi: Kayibusiswe i Nkosi, uNkulunkulu kaIsrayeli w , eyakhuluma ngomlomo wayo kuDavida ubaba, njalo yagcwalisa ngesandla sayo x , isithi: 16 Kusukela ngosuku engakhupha ngalo abantu bami uIsrayeli elizweni leGibhithe kangikhethanga muzi ezizweni zonke zakoIsrayeli ukwakha indlu, ukuthi ibizo lami libe lapho y , kodwa ngakhetha uDavida ukuthi abe phezu kwabantu bami uIsrayeli z . 17 Njalo kwakusenhliziyweni kaDavida ubaba ukwakhela ibizo le Nkosi uNkulunkulu kaIsrayeli indlu aa . 18 Kodwa i Nkosi yathi kuDavida ubaba: Njengoba kwakusenhliziyweni yakho ukwakhela ibizo lami indlu, wenze kuhle ukuthi kwakusenhliziyweni yakho; 19 loba kunjalo kawuyikuyakha indlu wena ab , kodwa indodana yakho ezaphuma ekhalweni lwakho, yona izalakhela ibizo lami indlu ac . 20 I Nkosi isiqinisile ilizwi layo eyalikhulumayo, ngoba ngivukile esikhundleni sikaDavida ubaba, ngihlala esihlalweni sobukhosi sikaIsrayeli njengokuba i Nkosi ikhulumile, sengilakhele ibizo le Nkosi uNkulunkulu kaIsrayeli indlu ad . 21 Njalo ngimisile lapho indawo yomtshokotsho, lapho okulesivumelwano se Nkosi khona, eyasenza labobaba ekubakhupheni kwayo elizweni leGibhithe ae .
