2 Chronicles 7:1-22
1. Now when Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the LORD filled the house.
2. The priests could not enter into the house of the LORD because the glory of the LORD filled the LORD'S house.
3. All the sons of Israel, seeing the fire come down and the glory of the LORD upon the house, bowed down on the pavement with their faces to the ground, and they worshiped and gave praise to the LORD, saying, "Truly He is good, truly His lovingkindness is everlasting."
4. Then the king and all the people offered sacrifice before the LORD.
5. King Solomon offered a sacrifice of 22,000 oxen and 120,000 sheep. Thus the king and all the people dedicated the house of God.
6. The priests stood at their posts, and the Levites also, with the instruments of music to the LORD, which King David had made for giving praise to the LORD--"for His lovingkindness is everlasting"--whenever he gave praise by their means, while the priests on the other side blew trumpets; and all Israel was standing.
7. Then Solomon consecrated the middle of the court that was before the house of the LORD, for there he offered the burnt offerings and the fat of the peace offerings because the bronze altar which Solomon had made was not able to contain the burnt offering, the grain offering and the fat.
8. So Solomon observed the feast at that time for seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great assembly who came from the entrance of Hamath to the brook of Egypt.
9. On the eighth day they held a solemn assembly, for the dedication of the altar they observed seven days and the feast seven days.
10. Then on the twenty-third day of the seventh month he sent the people to their tents, rejoicing and happy of heart because of the goodness that the LORD had shown to David and to Solomon and to His people Israel.
11. Thus Solomon finished the house of the LORD and the king's palace, and successfully completed all that he had planned on doing in the house of the LORD and in his palace.
12. Then the LORD appeared to Solomon at night and said to him, "I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for Myself as 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. and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
15. "Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place.
16. "For now I have chosen and consecrated this house that My name may be there forever, and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually.
17. "As for you, if you walk before Me as your father David walked, even to do according to all that I have commanded you, and will keep My statutes and My ordinances,
18. then I will establish your royal throne as I covenanted with your father David, saying, 'You shall not lack a man to be ruler in Israel.'
19. "But if you turn away and forsake My statutes and My commandments which I have set before you, and go and serve other gods and worship them,
20. then I will uproot you from My land which I have given you, and this house which I have consecrated for My name I will cast out of My sight and I will make it a proverb and a byword among all peoples.
21. "As for this house, which was exalted, everyone who passes by it will be astonished and say, 'Why has the LORD done thus to this land and to this house?'
22. "And they will say, 'Because they forsook the LORD, the God of their fathers who brought them from the land of Egypt, and they adopted other gods and worshiped them and served them; therefore He has brought all this adversity on them.'"

2 Chronicles 8:1-18
1. Now it came about at the end of the twenty years in which Solomon had built the house of the LORD and his own house
2. that he built the cities which Huram had given to him, and settled the sons of Israel there.
3. Then Solomon went to Hamath-zobah and captured it.
4. He built Tadmor in the wilderness and all the storage cities which he had built in Hamath.
5. He also built upper Beth-horon and lower Beth-horon, fortified cities with walls, gates and bars;
6. and Baalath and all the storage cities that Solomon had, and all the cities for his chariots and cities for his horsemen, and all that it pleased Solomon to build in Jerusalem, in Lebanon, and in all the land under his rule.
7. All of the people who were left of the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites and the Jebusites, who were not of Israel,
8. namely, from their descendants who were left after them in the land whom the sons of Israel had not destroyed, them Solomon raised as forced laborers to this day.
9. But Solomon did not make slaves for his work from the sons of Israel; they were men of war, his chief captains and commanders of his chariots and his horsemen.
10. These were the chief officers of King Solomon, two hundred and fifty who ruled over the people.
11. Then Solomon brought Pharaoh's daughter up from the city of David to the house which 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 where the ark of the LORD has entered."
12. Then Solomon offered burnt offerings to the LORD on the altar of the LORD which he had built before the porch;
13. and did so according to the daily rule, offering them up according to the commandment of Moses, for the sabbaths, the new moons and the three annual feasts--the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Weeks and the Feast of Booths.
14. Now according to the ordinance of his father David, he appointed the divisions of the priests for their service, and the Levites for their duties of praise and ministering before the priests according to the daily rule, and the gatekeepers by their divisions at every gate; for David the man of God had so commanded.
15. And they did not depart from the commandment of the king to the priests and Levites in any manner or concerning the storehouses.
16. Thus all the work of Solomon was carried out from the day of the foundation of the house of the LORD, and until it was finished. So the house of the LORD was completed.
17. Then Solomon went to Ezion-geber and to Eloth on the seashore in the land of Edom.
18. And Huram by his servants sent him ships and servants who knew the sea; and they went with Solomon's servants to Ophir, and took from there four hundred and fifty talents of gold and brought them to King Solomon.

Psalms 80:1-6
1. Oh, give ear, Shepherd of Israel, You who lead Joseph like a flock; You who are enthroned above the cherubim, shine forth!
2. Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up Your power And come to save us!
3. O God, restore us And cause Your face to shine upon us, and we will be saved.
4. O LORD God of hosts, How long will You be angry with the prayer of Your people?
5. You have fed them with the bread of tears, And You have made them to drink tears in large measure.
6. You make us an object of contention to our neighbors, And our enemies laugh among themselves.

Proverbs 20:15-15
15. There is gold, and an abundance of jewels; But the lips of knowledge are a more precious thing.

Acts 13:26-52
26. "Brethren, sons of Abraham's family, and those among you who fear God, to us the message of this salvation has been sent.
27. "For those who live in Jerusalem, and their rulers, recognizing neither Him nor the utterances of the prophets which are read every Sabbath, fulfilled these by condemning Him.
28. "And though they found no ground for putting Him to death, they asked Pilate that He be executed.
29. "When they had carried out all that was written concerning Him, they took Him down from the cross and laid Him in a tomb.
30. "But God raised Him from the dead;
31. and for many days He appeared to those who came up with Him from Galilee to Jerusalem, the very ones who are now His witnesses to the people.
32. "And we preach to you the good news of the promise made to the fathers,
33. that God has fulfilled this promise to our children in that He raised up Jesus, as it is also written in the second Psalm, 'YOU ARE MY SON; TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU.'
34. "As for the fact that He raised Him up from the dead, no longer to return to decay, He has spoken in this way: 'I WILL GIVE YOU THE HOLY and SURE blessings OF DAVID.'
35. "Therefore He also says in another Psalm, 'YOU WILL NOT ALLOW YOUR HOLY ONE TO UNDERGO DECAY.'
36. "For David, after he had served the purpose of God in his own generation, fell asleep, and was laid among his fathers and underwent decay;
37. but He whom God raised did not undergo decay.
38. "Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through Him forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you,
39. and through Him everyone who believes is freed from all things, from which you could not be freed through the Law of Moses.
40. "Therefore take heed, so that the thing spoken of in the Prophets may not come upon you:
41. 'BEHOLD, YOU SCOFFERS, AND MARVEL, AND PERISH; FOR I AM ACCOMPLISHING A WORK IN YOUR DAYS, A WORK WHICH YOU WILL NEVER BELIEVE, THOUGH SOMEONE SHOULD DESCRIBE IT TO YOU.'"
42. As Paul and Barnabas were going out, the people kept begging that these things might be spoken to them the next Sabbath.
43. Now when the meeting of the synagogue had broken up, many of the Jews and of the God-fearing proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas, who, speaking to them, were urging them to continue in the grace of God.
44. The next Sabbath nearly the whole city assembled to hear the word of the Lord.
45. But when the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy and began contradicting the things spoken by Paul, and were blaspheming.
46. Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly and said, "It was necessary that the word of God be spoken to you first; since you repudiate it and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold, we are turning to the Gentiles.
47. "For so the Lord has commanded us, 'I HAVE PLACED YOU AS A LIGHT FOR THE GENTILES, THAT YOU MAY BRING SALVATION TO THE END OF THE EARTH.'"
48. When the Gentiles heard this, they began rejoicing and glorifying the word of the Lord; and as many as had been appointed to eternal life believed.
49. And the word of the Lord was being spread through the whole region.
50. But the Jews incited the devout women of prominence and the leading men of the city, and instigated a persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and drove them out of their district.
51. But they shook off the dust of their feet in protest against them and went to Iconium.
52. And the disciples were continually filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.
