2 Chronicles 7:1-22
1. Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt-offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of Jehovah filled the house.
2. And the priests could not enter into the house of Jehovah, because the glory of Jehovah filled Jehovahs house.
3. And all the children of Israel looked on, when the fire came down, and the glory of Jehovah was upon the house; and they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshipped, and gave thanks unto Jehovah, saying, For he is good; for his lovingkindness endureth for ever.
4. Then the king and all the people offered sacrifice before Jehovah.
5. And king Solomon offered a sacrifice of twenty and two thousand oxen, and a hundred and twenty thousand sheep. So the king and all the people dedicated the house of God.
6. And the priests stood, according to their offices; the Levites also with instruments of music of Jehovah, which David the king had made to give thanks unto Jehovah, (for his lovingkindness endureth for ever,) when David praised by their ministry: and the priests sounded trumpets before them; and all Israel stood.
7. Moreover Solomon hallowed the middle of the court that was before the house of Jehovah; for there he offered the burnt-offerings, and the fat of the peace-offerings, because the brazen altar which Solomon had made was not able to receive the burnt-offering, and the meal-offering, and the fat.
8. So Solomon held the feast at that time seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great assembly, from the entrance of Hamath unto the brook of Egypt.
9. And on the eighth day they held a solemn assembly: for they kept the dedication of the altar seven days, and the feast seven days.
10. And on the three and twentieth day of the seventh month he sent the people away unto their tents, joyful and glad of heart for the goodness that Jehovah had showed unto David, and to Solomon, and to Israel his people.
11. Thus Solomon finished the house of Jehovah, and the kings house: and all that came into Solomons heart to make in the house of Jehovah, and in his own house, he prosperously effected.
12. And Jehovah appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for a house of sacrifice.
13. If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;
14. if my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
15. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent, unto the prayer that is made in this place.
16. For now have I chosen and hallowed this house, that my name may be there for ever; and mine eyes and my heart shall be there perpetually.
17. And as for thee, if thou wilt walk before me as David thy father walked, and do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my statutes and mine ordinances;
18. then I will establish the throne of thy kingdom, according as I covenanted with David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man to be ruler in Israel.
19. But if ye turn away, and forsake my statutes and my commandments which I have set before you, and shall go and serve other gods, and worship them;
20. then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of my sight, and I will make it a proverb and a byword among all peoples.
21. And this house, which is so high, every one that passeth by it shall be astonished, and shall say, Why hath Jehovah done thus unto this land, and to this house?
22. And they shall answer, Because they forsook Jehovah, the God of their fathers, who brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, and laid hold on other gods, and worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath he brought all this evil upon them.

2 Chronicles 8:1-18
1. And it came to pass at the end of twenty years, wherein Solomon had built the house of Jehovah, and his own house,
2. that the cities which Huram had given to Solomon, Solomon built them, and caused the children of Israel to dwell there.
3. And Solomon went to Hamath-zobah, and prevailed against it.
4. And he built Tadmor in the wilderness, and all the store-cities, which he built in Hamath.
5. Also he built Beth-horon the upper, and Beth-horon the nether, fortified cities, with walls, gates, and bars;
6. and Baalath, and all the store-cities that Solomon had, and all the cities for his chariots, and the cities for his horsemen, and all that Solomon desired to build for his pleasure in Jerusalem, and in Lebanon, and in all the land of his dominion.
7. As for all the people that were left of the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, that were not of Israel;
8. of their children that were left after them in the land, whom the children of Israel consumed not, of them did Solomon raise a levy of bondservants unto this day.
9. But of the children of Israel did Solomon make no servants for his work; but they were men of war, and chief of his captains, and rulers of his chariots and of his horsemen.
10. And these were the chief officers of king Solomon, even two hundred and fifty, that bare rule over the people.
11. And Solomon brought up the daughter of Pharaoh out of the city of David unto the house that he had built for her; for he said, My wife shall not dwell in the house of David king of Israel, because the places are holy, whereunto the ark of Jehovah hath come.
12. Then Solomon offered burnt-offerings unto Jehovah on the altar of Jehovah, which he had built before the porch,
13. even as the duty of every day required, offering according to the commandment of Moses, on the sabbaths, and on the new moons, and on the set feasts, three times in the year, even in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles.
14. And he appointed, according to the ordinance of David his father, the courses of the priests to their service, and the Levites to their offices, to praise, and to minister before the priests, as the duty of every day required; the doorkeepers also by their courses at every gate: for so had David the man of God commanded.
15. And they departed not from the commandment of the king unto the priests and Levites concerning any matter, or concerning the treasures.
16. Now all the work of Solomon was prepared unto the day of the foundation of the house of Jehovah, and until it was finished. So the house of Jehovah was completed.
17. Then went Solomon to Ezion-geber, and to Eloth, on the seashore in the land of Edom.
18. And Huram sent him by the hands of his servants ships, and servants that had knowledge of the sea; and they came with the servants of Solomon to Ophir, and fetched from thence four hundred and fifty talents of gold, and brought them to king Solomon.

Psalms 80:1-6
1. Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, Thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; Thou that sittest above the cherubim, shine forth.
2. Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up thy might, And come to save us.
3. Turn us again, O God; And cause thy face to shine, and we shall be saved.
4. O Jehovah God of hosts, How long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy people?
5. Thou hast fed them with the bread of tears, And given them tears to drink in large measure.
6. Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbors; And our enemies laugh among themselves.

Proverbs 20:15-15
15. There is gold, and abundance of rubies; But the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.

Acts 13:26-52
26. Brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and those among you that fear God, to us is the word of this salvation sent forth.
27. For they that dwell in Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not, nor the voices of the prophets which are read every sabbath, fulfilled them by condemning him.
28. And though they found no cause of death in him, yet asked they of Pilate that he should be slain.
29. And when they had fulfilled all things that were written of him, they took him down from the tree, and laid him in a tomb.
30. But God raised him from the dead:
31. and he was seen for many days of them that came up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are now his witnesses unto the people.
32. And we bring you good tidings of the promise made unto the fathers,
33. that God hath fulfilled the same unto our children, in that he raised up Jesus; as also it is written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.
34. And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, now no more to return to corruption, he hath spoken on this wise, I will give you the holy and sure blessings of David.
35. Because he saith also in another psalm, Thou wilt not give Thy Holy One to see corruption.
36. For David, after he had in his own generation served the counsel of God, fell asleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption:
37. but he whom God raised up saw no corruption.
38. Be it known unto you therefore, brethren, that through this man is proclaimed unto you remission of sins:
39. and by him every one that believeth is justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.
40. Beware therefore, lest that come upon you which is spoken in the prophets:
41. Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish; For I work a work in your days, A work which ye shall in no wise believe, if one declare it unto you.
42. And as they went out, they besought that these words might be spoken to them the next sabbath.
43. Now when the synagogue broke up, many of the Jews and of the devout proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas; who, speaking to them, urged them to continue in the grace of God.
44. And the next sabbath almost the whole city was gathered together to hear the word of God.
45. But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with jealousy, and contradicted the things which were spoken by Paul, and blasphemed.
46. And Paul and Barnabas spake out boldly, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first be spoken to you. Seeing ye thrust it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.
47. For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee for a light of the Gentiles, That thou shouldest be for salvation unto the uttermost part of the earth.
48. And as the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of God: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.
49. And the word of the Lord was spread abroad throughout all the region.
50. But the Jews urged on the devout women of honorable estate, and the chief men of the city, and stirred up a persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and cast them out of their borders.
51. But they shook off the dust of their feet against them, and came unto Iconium.
52. And the disciples were filled with joy with the Holy Spirit.
