1 Kings 9:1-28
1. And it came to pass, when Solomon had finished the building of the house of Jehovah, and the kings house, and all Solomons desire which he was pleased to do,
2. that Jehovah appeared to Solomon the second time, as he had appeared unto him at Gibeon.
3. And Jehovah said unto him, I have heard thy prayer and thy supplication, that thou hast made before me: I have hallowed this house, which thou hast built, to put my name there for ever; and mine eyes and my heart shall be there perpetually.
4. And as for thee, if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, in integrity of heart, and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my statutes and mine ordinances;
5. then I will establish the throne of thy kingdom over Israel for ever, according as I promised to David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man upon the throne of Israel.
6. But if ye shall turn away from following me, ye or your children, and not keep my commandments and my statutes which I have set before you, but shall go and serve other gods, and worship them;
7. then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this house, which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of my sight; and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all peoples.
8. And though this house is so high, yet shall every one that passeth by it be astonished, and shall hiss; and they shall say, Why hath Jehovah done thus unto this land, and to this house?
9. and they shall answer, Because they forsook Jehovah their God, who brought forth their fathers out of the land of Egypt, and laid hold on other gods, and worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath Jehovah brought all this evil upon them.
10. And it came to pass at the end of twenty years, wherein Solomon had built the two houses, the house of Jehovah and the kings house,
11. (now Hiram the king of Tyre had furnished Solomon with cedar-trees and fir-trees, and with gold, according to all his desire), that then king Solomon gave Hiram twenty cities in the land of Galilee.
12. And Hiram came out from Tyre to see the cities which Solomon had given him; and they pleased him not.
13. And he said, What cities are these which thou hast given me, my brother? And he called them the land of Cabul unto this day.
14. And Hiram sent to the king sixscore talents of gold.
15. And this is the reason of the levy which king Solomon raised, to build the house of Jehovah, and his own house, and Millo, and the wall of Jerusalem, and Hazor, and Megiddo, and Gezer.
16. Pharaoh king of Egypt had gone up, and taken Gezer, and burnt it with fire, and slain the Canaanites that dwelt in the city, and given it for a portion unto his daughter, Solomons wife.
17. And Solomon built Gezer, and Beth-horon the nether,
18. and Baalath, and Tamar in the wilderness, in the land,
19. and all the store-cities that Solomon had, and the cities for his chariots, and the cities for his horsemen, and that which Solomon desired to build for his pleasure in Jerusalem, and in Lebanon, and in all the land of his dominion.
20. As for all the people that were left of the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites, who were not of the children of Israel;
21. their children that were left after them in the land, whom the children of Israel were not able utterly to destroy, of them did Solomon raise a levy of bondservants unto this day.
22. But of the children of Israel did Solomon make no bondservants; but they were the men of war, and his servants, and his princes, and his captains, and rulers of his chariots and of his horsemen.
23. These were the chief officers that were over Solomons work, five hundred and fifty, who bare rule over the people that wrought in the work.
24. But Pharaohs daughter came up out of the city of David unto her house which Solomon had built for her: then did he build Millo.
25. And three times a year did Solomon offer burnt-offerings and peace-offerings upon the altar which he built unto Jehovah, burning incense therewith, upon the altar that was before Jehovah. So he finished the house.
26. And king Solomon made a navy of ships in Ezion-geber, which is beside Eloth, on the shore of the Red Sea, in the land of Edom.
27. And Hiram sent in the navy his servants, shipmen that had knowledge of the sea, with the servants of Solomon.
28. And they came to Ophir, and fetched from thence gold, four hundred and twenty talents, and brought it to king Solomon.

1 Kings 10:1-29
1. And when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of Jehovah, she came to prove him with hard questions.
2. And she came to Jerusalem with a very great train, with camels that bare spices, and very much gold, and precious stones; and when she was come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart.
3. And Solomon told her all her questions: there was not anything hid from the king which he told her not.
4. And when the queen of Sheba had seen all the wisdom of Solomon, and the house that he had built,
5. and the food of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel, and his cupbearers, and his ascent by which he went up unto the house of Jehovah; there was no more spirit in her.
6. And she said to the king, It was a true report that I heard in mine own land of thine acts, and of thy wisdom.
7. Howbeit I believed not the words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it: and, behold, the half was not told me; thy wisdom and prosperity exceed the fame which I heard.
8. Happy are thy men, happy are these thy servants, that stand continually before thee, and that hear thy wisdom.
9. Blessed be Jehovah thy God, who delighted in thee, to set thee on the throne of Israel: because Jehovah loved Israel for ever, therefore made he thee king, to do justice and righteousness.
10. And she gave the king a hundred and twenty talents of gold, and of spices very great store, and precious stones: there came no more such abundance of spices as these which the queen of Sheba gave to king Solomon.
11. And the navy also of Hiram, that brought gold from Ophir, brought in from Ophir great plenty of almug-trees and precious stones.
12. And the king made of the almug-trees pillars for the house of Jehovah, and for the kings house, harps also and psalteries for the singers: there came no such almug-trees, nor were seen, unto this day.
13. And king Solomon gave to the queen of Sheba all her desire, whatsoever she asked, besides that which Solomon gave her of his royal bounty. So she turned, and went to her own land, she and her servants.
14. Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred threescore and six talents of gold,
15. besides that which the traders brought, and the traffic of the merchants, and of all the kings of the mingled people, and of the governors of the country.
16. And king Solomon made two hundred bucklers of beaten gold; six hundred shekels of gold went to one buckler.
17. And he made three hundred shields of beaten gold; three pounds of gold went to one shield: and the king put them in the house of the forest of Lebanon.
18. Moreover the king made a great throne of ivory, and overlaid it with the finest gold.
19. There were six steps to the throne, and the top of the throne was round behind; and there were stays on either side by the place of the seat, and two lions standing beside the stays.
20. And twelve lions stood there on the one side and on the other upon the six steps: there was not the like made in any kingdom.
21. And all king Solomons drinking vessels were of gold, and all the vessels of the house of the forest of Lebanon were of pure gold: none were of silver; it was nothing accounted of in the days of Solomon.
22. For the king had at sea a navy of Tarshish with the navy of Hiram: once every three years came the navy of Tarshish, bringing gold, and silver, ivory, and apes, and peacocks.
23. So king Solomon exceeded all the kings of the earth in riches and in wisdom.
24. And all the earth sought the presence of Solomon, to hear his wisdom, which God had put in his heart.
25. And they brought every man his tribute, vessels of silver, and vessels of gold, and raiment, and armor, and spices, horses, and mules, a rate year by year.
26. And Solomon gathered together chariots and horsemen: and he had a thousand and four hundred chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen, that he bestowed in the chariot cities, and with the king at Jerusalem.
27. And the king made silver to be in Jerusalem as stones, and cedars made he to be as the sycomore-trees that are in the lowland, for abundance.
28. And the horses which Solomon had were brought out of Egypt; and the kings merchants received them in droves, each drove at a price.
29. And a chariot came up and went out of Egypt for six hundred shekels of silver, and a horse for a hundred and fifty; and so for all the kings of the Hittites, and for the kings of Syria, did they bring them out by their means.

Psalms 69:1-4
1. Save me, O God; For the waters are come in unto my soul.
2. I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.
3. I am weary with my crying; my throat is dried: Mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.
4. They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head: They that would cut me off, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: That which I took not away I have to restore.

Proverbs 17:18-19
18. A man void of understanding striketh hands, And becometh surety in the presence of his neighbor.
19. He loveth transgression that loveth strife: He that raiseth high his gate seeketh destruction.

John 11:30-57
30. (Now Jesus was not yet come into the village, but was still in the place where Martha met him.)
31. The Jews then who were with her in the house, and were consoling her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up quickly and went out, followed her, supposing that she was going unto the tomb to weep there.
32. Mary therefore, when she came where Jesus was, and saw him, fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
33. When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping who came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled,
34. and said, Where have ye laid him? They say unto him, Lord, come and see.
35. Jesus wept.
36. The Jews therefore said, Behold how he loved him!
37. But some of them said, Could not this man, who opened the eyes of him that was blind, have caused that this man also should not die?
38. Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the tomb. Now it was a cave, and a stone lay against it.
39. Jesus saith, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time the body decayeth; for he hath been dead four days.
40. Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou believedst, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
41. So they took away the stone. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou heardest me.
42. And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the multitude that standeth around I said it, that they may believe that thou didst send me.
43. And when he had thus spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.
44. He that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave-clothes; and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.
45. Many therefore of the Jews, who came to Mary and beheld that which he did, believed on him.
46. But some of them went away to the Pharisees, and told them the things which Jesus had done.
47. The chief priests therefore and the Pharisees gathered a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many signs.
48. If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans will come and take away both our place and our nation.
49. But a certain one of them, Caiaphas, being high priest that year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,
50. nor do ye take account that it is expedient for you that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.
51. Now this he said not of himself: but, being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for the nation;
52. and not for the nation only, but that he might also gather together into one the children of God that are scattered abroad.
53. So from that day forth they took counsel that they might put him to death.
54. Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews, but departed thence into the country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim; and there he tarried with the disciples.
55. Now the passover of the Jews was at hand: and many went up to Jerusalem out of the country before the passover, to purify themselves.
56. They sought therefore for Jesus, and spake one with another, as they stood in the temple, What think ye? That he will not come to the feast?
57. Now the chief priests and the Pharisees had given commandment, that, if any man knew where he was, he should show it, that they might take him.
