1 καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ εἴκοσι ἔτη ἐν οἷς ᾠκοδόμησεν Σαλωμων τὸν οἶκον κυρίου καὶ τὸν οἶκον ἑαυτοῦ 2 καὶ τὰς πόλεις ἃς ἔδωκεν Χιραμ τῷ Σαλωμων ᾠκοδόμησεν αὐτὰς Σαλωμων καὶ κατῴκισεν ἐκεῖ τοὺς υἱοὺς Ισραηλ 3 καὶ ἦλθεν Σαλωμων εἰς Αιμαθ Σωβα καὶ κατίσχυσεν αὐτήν 4 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν τὴν Θεδμορ ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ καὶ πάσας τὰς πόλεις τὰς ὀχυράς ἃς ᾠκοδόμησεν ἐν Ημαθ 5 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν τὴν Βαιθωρων τὴν ἄνω καὶ τὴν Βαιθωρων τὴν κάτω πόλεις ὀχυράς τείχη πύλαι καὶ μοχλοί 6 καὶ τὴν Βααλαθ καὶ πάσας τὰς πόλεις τὰς ὀχυράς αἳ ἦσαν τῷ Σαλωμων καὶ πάσας τὰς πόλεις τῶν ἁρμάτων καὶ τὰς πόλεις τῶν ἱππέων καὶ ὅσα ἐπεθύμησεν Σαλωμων κατὰ τὴν ἐπιθυμίαν τοῦ οἰκοδομῆσαι ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἐν τῷ Λιβάνῳ καὶ ἐν πάσῃ τῇ βασιλείᾳ αὐτοῦ 7 πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ὁ καταλειφθεὶς ἀπὸ τοῦ Χετταίου καὶ τοῦ Αμορραίου καὶ τοῦ Φερεζαίου καὶ τοῦ Ευαίου καὶ τοῦ Ιεβουσαίου οἳ οὔκ εἰσιν ἐκ τοῦ Ισραηλ 8 ἦσαν ἐκ τῶν υἱῶν αὐτῶν τῶν καταλειφθέντων με{T'} αὐτοὺς ἐν τῇ γῇ οὓς οὐκ ἐξωλέθρευσαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ καὶ ἀνήγαγεν αὐτοὺς Σαλωμων εἰς φόρον ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης 9 καὶ ἐκ τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ οὐκ ἔδωκεν Σαλωμων εἰς παῖδας τῇ βασιλείᾳ αὐτοῦ ὅτι αὐτοὶ ἄνδρες πολεμισταὶ καὶ ἄρχοντες καὶ δυνατοὶ καὶ ἄρχοντες ἁρμάτων καὶ ἱππέων 10 καὶ οὗτοι ἄρχοντες τῶν προστατῶν βασιλέως Σαλωμων πεντήκοντα καὶ διακόσιοι ἐργοδιωκτοῦντες ἐν τῷ λαῷ 11 καὶ τὴν θυγατέρα Φαραω Σαλωμων ἀνήγαγεν ἐκ πόλεως Δαυιδ εἰς τὸν οἶκον ὃν ᾠκοδόμησεν αὐτῇ ὅτι εἶπεν οὐ κατοικήσει ἡ γυνή μου ἐν πόλει Δαυιδ τοῦ βασιλέως Ισραηλ ὅτι ἅγιός ἐστιν οὗ εἰσῆλθεν ἐκεῖ κιβωτὸς κυρίου 1 Twenty years passed, after Solomon had built the Lord’s temple and his own palace; 2 then he set about fortifying the towns which Hiram had made over to him, and establishing Israelite inhabitants there.[1] 3 He marched against Emath Suba, and took possession of it, 4 fortified Palmyra, out in the desert, and other fastnesses in the Emath country. 5 He rebuilt Bethoron, upper and lower, making two walled cities there, bolted and barred against attack; 6 Baalath, too, and all those other fortress-cities which bear Solomon’s name, cities where he stationed his chariots and his horsemen. In Jerusalem, on Lebanon, all through his kingdom Solomon built whatever he had the whim to design. 7 Some of the old population was still left, Hethites, Amorrhites, Pherezites, Hevites, Jebusites, that were no true breed of Israel, 8 but came down from the stock which had been spared by the invaders; these king Solomon made into bondservants, as they are to this day. Among the Israelites, 9 he would have no man enslaved to the royal service; it was from these he drew his warriors and his courtiers, the commanders of his chariots and his horsemen. 10 Five hundred and fifty captains king Solomon had, that issued his commands to the people at large. 11 He must build a new house, too, for Pharao’s daughter, so that she might dwell in David’s Keep no longer. I will not house wife of mine, said he, in David’s home, that was king of Israel; the ark of the Lord has found its way there, and it is hallowed ground now. 1 Expletis autem viginti annis postquam ædificavit Salomon domum Domini et domum suam, 2 civitates quas dederat Hiram Salomoni, ædificavit, et habitare ibi fecit filios Israël. 3 Abiit quoque in Emath Suba, et obtinuit eam. 4 Et ædificavit Palmyram in deserto, et alias civitates munitissimas ædificavit in Emath. 5 Exstruxitque Bethoron superiorem, et Bethoron inferiorem, civitates muratas habentes portas et vectes et seras: 6 Balaath etiam et omnes urbes firmissimas quæ fuerunt Salomonis, cunctasque urbes quadrigarum, et urbes equitum. Omnia quæcumque voluit Salomon atque disposuit, ædificavit in Jerusalem, et in Libano, et in universa terra potestatis suæ. 7 Omnem populum qui derelictus fuerat de Hethæis, et Amorrhæis, et Pherezæis, et Hevæis, et Jebusæis, qui non erant de stirpe Israël, 8 de filiis eorum, et de posteris, quos non interfecerant filii Israël, subjugavit Salomon in tributarios, usque in diem hanc. 9 Porro de filiis Israël non posuit ut servirent operibus regis: ipsi enim erant viri bellatores, et duces primi, et principes quadrigarum et equitum ejus. 10 Omnes autem principes exercitus regis Salomonis fuerunt ducenti quinquaginta, qui erudiebant populum. 11 Filiam vero Pharaonis transtulit de civitate David in domum quam ædificaverat ei. Dixit enim rex: Non habitabit uxor mea in domo David regis Israël, eo quod sanctificata sit: quia ingressa est in eam arca Domini.
12 τότε ἀνήνεγκεν Σαλωμων ὁλοκαυτώματα τῷ κυρίῳ ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον ὃ ᾠκοδόμησεν ἀπέναντι τοῦ ναοῦ 13 καὶ κατὰ τὸν λόγον ἡμέρας ἐν ἡμέρᾳ τοῦ ἀναφέρειν κατὰ τὰς ἐντολὰς Μωυσῆ ἐν τοῖς σαββάτοις καὶ ἐν τοῖς μησὶν καὶ ἐν ταῖς ἑορταῖς τρεῖς καιροὺς τοῦ ἐνιαυτοῦ ἐν τῇ ἑορτῇ τῶν ἀζύμων καὶ ἐν τῇ ἑορτῇ τῶν ἑβδομάδων καὶ ἐν τῇ ἑορτῇ τῶν σκηνῶν 14 καὶ ἔστησεν κατὰ τὴν κρίσιν Δαυιδ τὰς διαιρέσεις τῶν ἱερέων κατὰ τὰς λειτουργίας αὐτῶν καὶ οἱ Λευῖται ἐπὶ τὰς φυλακὰς αὐτῶν τοῦ αἰνεῖν καὶ λειτουργεῖν κατέναντι τῶν ἱερέων κατὰ τὸν λόγον ἡμέρας ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ καὶ οἱ πυλωροὶ κατὰ τὰς διαιρέσεις αὐτῶν εἰς πύλην καὶ πύλην ὅτι οὕτως ἐντολαὶ Δαυιδ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ θεοῦ 15 οὐ παρῆλθον τὰς ἐντολὰς τοῦ βασιλέως περὶ τῶν ἱερέων καὶ τῶν Λευιτῶν εἰς πάντα λόγον καὶ εἰς τοὺς θησαυρούς 12 Solomon used the altar he had built to the Lord in front of the temple porch for offering burnt-sacrifice 13 day by day, as the law of Moses enjoined, on sabbaths, too, and at the new moon, and for the three feasts that came round yearly, the feasts of Unleavened Bread, of Weeks, and of Tabernacles. 14 And he assigned to the priests the duties they were to perform, as his father David had prescribed them; and to the Levites their duties of singing praise, and of helping the priests with their task, as the needs of each day required; and to the door-keepers their various posts. All that God’s servant David had enjoined must be done; 15 neither priest nor Levite might go beyond the king’s orders, in this or in the keeping of the sacred treasures. 12 Tunc obtulit Salomon holocausta Domino super altare Domini, quod exstruxerat ante porticum, 13 ut per singulos dies offerretur in eo juxta præceptum Moysi in sabbatis et in calendis, et in festis diebus, ter per annum, id est, in solemnitate azymorum, et in solemnitatem hebdomadarum, et in solemnitate tabernaculorum. 14 Et constituit juxta dispositionem David patris sui officia sacerdotum in ministeriis suis, et Levitas in ordine suo, ut laudarent et ministrarent coram sacerdotibus juxta ritum uniuscujusque diei, et janitores in divisionibus suis per portam et portam: sic enim præceperat David homo Dei. 15 Nec prætergressi sunt de mandatis regis tam sacerdotes quam Levitæ, ex omnibus quæ præceperat, et in custodiis thesaurorum.
16 καὶ ἡτοιμάσθη πᾶσα ἡ ἐργασία ἀ{F'} ἧς ἡμέρας ἐθεμελιώθη ἕως οὗ ἐτελείωσεν Σαλωμων τὸν οἶκον κυρίου 17 τότε ᾤχετο Σαλωμων εἰς Γασιωνγαβερ καὶ εἰς τὴν Αιλαθ τὴν παραθαλασσίαν ἐν γῇ Ιδουμαίᾳ 18 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Χιραμ ἐν χειρὶ παίδων αὐτοῦ πλοῖα καὶ παῖδας εἰδότας θάλασσαν καὶ ᾤχοντο μετὰ τῶν παίδων Σαλωμων εἰς Σωφιρα καὶ ἔλαβον ἐκεῖθεν τετρακόσια καὶ πεντήκοντα τάλαντα χρυσίου καὶ ἦλθον πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα Σαλωμων 16 All that he needed king Solomon had by him, from the day when he laid the foundations of the Lord’s house till the day when he finished it;[2] 17 after that, he betook himself to Asiongaber, and Ailath, in Edom, on the shore of the Red Sea, 18 where Hiram’s men met him with ships and skilful mariners. These, with Solomon’s own men, sailed for Ophir, and brought back four hundred and fifty talents of gold to the royal coffers.[3] 16 Omnes impensas præparatas habuit Salomon ex eo die quo fundavit domum Domini usque in diem quo perfecit eam. 17 Tunc abiit Salomon in Asiongaber, et in Ailath ad oram maris Rubri, quæ est in terra Edom. 18 Misit autem ei Hiram per manus servorum suorum naves, et nautas gnaros maris, et abierunt cum servis Salomonis in Ophir, tuleruntque inde quadringenta quinquaginta talenta auri, et attulerunt ad regem Salomonem.
