14_2CH_06_01 Then said Solomon, the LORD hath said that he would dwell in the thick darkness.
14_2CH_06_02 but I have built an house of habitation for thee, And A place for thy dwelling for ever.
14_2CH_06_03 And the king turned his face, And blessed the whole congregation of Israel: And all the congregation of Israel stood.
14_2CH_06_04 And he said, blessed [ be] the LORD God of Israel, who hath with his hands fulfilled [ that] which he spake with his mouth to my Father David, saying,
14_2CH_06_05 since the day that I brought forth my people out of the land of Egypt I chose no city among all the tribes of Israel to build an house in, that my name might be there; neither chose I any man to be A ruler over my people Israel:
14_2CH_06_06 but I have chosen Jerusalem, that my name might be there; And have chosen David to be over my people Israel.
14_2CH_06_07 now it was in the heart of David my Father to build an house for the name of the LORD God of Israel.
14_2CH_06_08 but the LORD said to David my Father, Forasmuch as it was in thine heart to build an house for my name, thou didst Well in that it was in thine heart:
14_2CH_06_09 Notwithstanding thou shalt not build the house; but thy son which shall come forth out of thy loins, he shall build the house for my name.
14_2CH_06_10 the LORD therefore hath performed his word that he hath spoken: for I am risen up in the room of David my Father, And am set on the throne of Israel, as the LORD promised, And have built the house for the name of the LORD God of Israel.
14_2CH_06_11 And in it have I put the ark, wherein [ Is] the covenant of the LORD, that he made with the children of Israel.
14_2CH_06_12 And he stood before the altar of the LORD in the presence of all the congregation of Israel, And spread forth his hands:
14_2CH_06_13 for Solomon had made A brazen scaffold, of five cubits long, And five cubits broad, And three cubits high, And had set it in the midst of the court: And upon it he stood, And kneeled down upon his knees before all the congregation of Israel, And spread forth his hands toward heaven,
14_2CH_06_14 And said, O LORD God of Israel, [ there Is] no God like thee in the heaven, nor in the earth; which keepest covenant, And [ showest] mercy unto thy servants, that walk before thee with all their hearts:
14_2CH_06_15 thou which hast kept with thy servant David my Father that which thou hast promised him; And spakest with thy mouth, And hast fulfilled [ it] with thine hand, as [ it Is] this day.
14_2CH_06_16 now therefore, O LORD God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my Father that which thou hast promised him, saying, there shall not fail thee A man in my sight to sit upon the throne of Israel; yet So that thy children take heed to their way to walk in my law, as thou hast walked before me.
14_2CH_06_17 now Then, O LORD God of Israel, let thy word be verified, which thou hast spoken unto thy servant David.
14_2CH_06_18 but will God in very deed dwell with men on the earth? behold, heaven And the heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house which I have built !
14_2CH_06_19 have respect therefore to the prayer of thy servant, And to his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry And the prayer which thy servant prayeth before thee:
14_2CH_06_20 that thine eyes may be open upon this house day And night, upon the place whereof thou hast said that thou wouldest put thy name there; to hearken unto the prayer which thy servant prayeth toward this place.
14_2CH_06_21 hearken therefore unto the supplications of thy servant, And of thy people Israel, which they shall make toward this place: hear thou from thy dwelling place, [ even] from heaven; And when thou hearest, forgive.
14_2CH_06_22 if A man sin against his neighbour, And an oath be laid upon him to make him swear, And the oath come before thine altar in this house;
14_2CH_06_23 Then hear thou from heaven, And do, And judge thy servants, by requiting the wicked, by recompensing his way upon his own head; And by justifying the righteous, by giving him according to his righteousness.
14_2CH_06_24 And if thy people Israel be put to the worse before the enemy, because they have sinned against thee; And shall Return And confess thy name, And pray And make supplication before thee in this house;
14_2CH_06_25 Then hear thou from the heavens, And forgive the sin of thy people Israel, And bring them again unto the land which thou Gavest to them And to their fathers.
14_2CH_06_26 when the heaven Is shut up, And there Is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; [ yet] if they pray toward this place, And confess thy name, And turn from their sin, when thou dost afflict them;
14_2CH_06_27 Then hear thou from heaven, And forgive the sin of thy servants, And of thy people Israel, when thou hast taught them the good way, wherein they should walk; And send rain upon thy land, which thou hast given unto thy people for an inheritance.
14_2CH_06_28 if there be dearth in the land, if there be pestilence, if there be blasting, or mildew, locusts, or caterpillars; if their enemies besiege them in the cities of their land; whatsoever sore or whatsoever sickness [ there be]:
14_2CH_06_29 [ Then] what prayer [ or] what supplication soever shall be made of any man, or of all thy people Israel, when every one shall know his own sore And his own grief, And shall spread forth his hands in this house:
14_2CH_06_30 Then hear thou from heaven thy dwelling place, And forgive, And render unto every man according unto all his ways, whose heart thou knowest; [ for thou only knowest the hearts of the children of men:]
14_2CH_06_31 that they may Fear thee, to walk in thy ways, So long as they live in the land which thou Gavest unto our fathers.
14_2CH_06_32 moreover concerning the stranger, which Is not of thy people Israel, but Is come from A far country for thy great name's sake, And thy mighty hand, And thy stretched out arm; if they come And pray in this house;
14_2CH_06_33 Then hear thou from the heavens, [ even] from thy dwelling place, And do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for; that all people of the earth may know thy name, And Fear thee, as [ Doth] thy people Israel, And may know that this house which I have built Is called by thy name.
14_2CH_06_34 if thy people go out to war against their enemies by the way that thou shalt send them, And they pray unto thee toward this city which thou hast chosen, And the house which I have built for thy name;
14_2CH_06_35 Then hear thou from the heavens their prayer And their supplication, And maintain their cause.
14_2CH_06_36 if they sin against thee, [ for [ there Is] no man which sinneth not,] And thou be angry with them, And deliver them over before [ their] enemies, And they carry them away captives unto A land far off or near;
14_2CH_06_37 yet [ if] they bethink themselves in the land whither they are carried captive, And turn And pray unto thee in the land of their captivity, saying, we have sinned, we have done amiss, And have dealt wickedly;
14_2CH_06_38 if they Return to thee with all their heart And with all their soul in the land of their captivity, whither they have carried them captives, And pray toward their land, which thou Gavest unto their fathers, And [ toward] the city which thou hast chosen, And toward the house which I have built for thy name:
14_2CH_06_39 Then hear thou from the heavens, [ even] from thy dwelling place, their prayer And their supplications, And maintain their cause, And forgive thy people which have sinned against thee.
14_2CH_06_40 now, my God, let, I beseech thee, thine eyes be open, And [ let] thine ears [ be] attent unto the prayer [ that Is made] in this place.
14_2CH_06_41 now therefore Arise, O LORD God, into thy resting place, thou, And the ark of thy strength: let thy priests, O LORD God, be clothed with salvation, And let thy saints Rejoice in goodness.
14_2CH_06_42 O LORD God, turn not away the face of thine anointed: Remember the mercies of David thy servant.
