1 Kings 5:1-18
1. And Hiram king of Tyre sent his servants unto Salomon, for he had heard that they had anointed him king in the room of his father. And thereto Hiram was ever a lover of David's.
2. And Salomon sent again to Hiram saying:
3. thou knowest of David my father, how he could not build an house unto the name of the LORD his God for war which he had on every side, until the LORD had put them under his foot.
4. But now the LORD my God hath given me rest on every side, so that there is neither adversary nor any evil plague.
5. And therefore I am disposed to build an house unto the name of the LORD my God, as he promised David my father saying: thy son which I will put upon thy seat for thee, he shall build an house unto my name.
6. Now then command that they hew me Cedar trees in Libanon. And let my servants be with thine, and I will give the hire of thy servants in all such things as thou shalt appoint, for thou knowest that there are not among us that can skill to hew timber like unto the Sidones.
7. When Hiram heard the words of Salomon, he rejoiced greatly and said: Blessed be the LORD this day which hath set David a wise son over this mighty people.
8. And Hiram sent again to Salomon saying: I have accepted the request which thou sentest to me for, and will satisfy all thy lust, concerning timber of Cedar trees and fir.
9. My servants shall bring them from Libanon to the sea. And I will convey them by ship unto the place that thou shalt send me word, and will cause them to be discharged there, that thou mayst receive them. And thou shalt do me this pleasure again, to minister food for mine house.
10. And so Hiram gave Salomon Cedar trees and fir trees, as much as he desired.
11. And Salomon gave Hiram twenty thousand quarters of wheat to feed his household withal, and twenty butts of pure oil. And so much gave Salomon to Hiram year by year.
12. And the LORD gave Salomon wisdom as he promised him. And there was peace between Hiram and Salomon and they were confedered together.
13. And king Salomon raised a tribute thorowout all Israel. And the tribute was thirty thousand men,
14. which he sent to Libanon, ten thousand a month by course, so that they were one month in Libanon and two months at home. And Adoniram was over the tribute.
15. And Salomon had three score and ten thousand that bare burthens, and three score and ten thousand that hewed in the mountains
16. besides the lords he had, to oversee the work, in number three thousand and three hundredth, which ruled the people that wrought in the work.
17. And at the commandment of the king, they brought great stones and that free stones, and hewed thereto, to lay in the foundation of the house.
18. And Salomon's masons and the masons of Hiram did hew them, with them of the borders. And so they prepared both in timber and stone to build the house.

1 Kings 6:1-38
1. And it came to pass the four hundredth and fourscore year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, and the fourth year of the reign of Salomon upon Israel, and the second month called Zif that he began to build the temple unto the LORD.
2. And the house which Salomon built for the LORD, was three score cubits long and twenty broad and thirty cubits high.
3. And the porch that was before the body of the temple, was twenty cubits long after the measure of the breadth of the house, and ten broad, even at the very end of the house.
4. And he made unto the house windows to open and shut.
5. And under the walls of the house he made galleries round about, both round about the temple and also the quere. And so made sides round about.
6. And the nethermost gallery was five cubits broad and the middle gallery six. And the third seven cubits broad. For he made the walls without whereon the beams lay, ever thinner and thinner, so that they were not fastened in the walls of the house.
7. And the house was built of stone made perfect all ready yer it was brought thither, so that there was neither hammer or axe either any tool of iron heard in the house, while it was in building.
8. And the door of the middle gallery was in the end of the house on the right side. And men went up with winding stairs into the middle gallery, and out of the middle into the third.
9. And so he built the house and finished it, and roofed it with beams of Cedar timber made hollow and joined together.
10. And then he built chambers over all the temple of five cubits height, and coupled the house together with beams of Cedar.
11. And the word of the LORD came to Salomon, saying:
12. concerning the house which thou art in building, if thou wilt walk in mine ordinances and execute my laws and keep all my commandments, to walk in them: then will I make good unto thee, my promises which I promised David thy father.
13. And I will dwell among the children of Israel and will not forsake my people Israel.
14. And so therefore Salomon built the house and finished it
15. and sealed the walls of the house within, with ribs of Cedar tree: even from the pavement unto the roof did he sile it within, and boarded the floor of the house with planks of fir.
16. And he sealed twenty cubits in the end of the temple both floor and walls with Cedar, and dressed it within to be the quere and place most holy.
17. And the first house, that is to say, the body of the temple, was forty cubits long.
18. And the Cedar of the house within was carved with knops and graven with flowers, and all was Cedar timber, so that no stone was seen.
19. And the quere that was within the temple, he prepared to set there the Ark of the appointment of the LORD.
20. And the quere was twenty cubits long, and twenty in breadth and twenty in height. And he sealed it with pure gold, and boarded the altar with Cedar.
21. And Salomon sealed the house within also with pure gold. And he made golden bars run along the quere, which he had covered with gold.
22. And the whole house he overlaid with gold until he had ended it. And the altar that was in the quere he overlaid with gold also.
23. And within the quere he made two Cherubins of olive tree, ten cubits high apiece,
24. and every wing five cubits long: so that from the uttermost part of one wing unto the uttermost part of the other were ten cubits.
25. And the other Cherub was ten cubits high also: so that both the Cherubs were of one measure and one size.
26. The height of the one Cherub was ten cubits, and so was it of the other.
27. And he put the Cherubs in the middle of the inner house. And the Cherubs stretched their wings, so that the one wing of the one touched the one wall, and the one wing of the other touched the other wall. And the other two wings of them touched one another in the midst of the house.
28. And he overlaid the Cherubs with gold.
29. And all the walls of the house round about, he garnished with work of Cherubs and paulme trees and graven flowers, both within in the quere and without in the temple.
30. And the floor of the house he covered with gold both within in the quere and also without in the temple.
31. And in the entering of the quere he made two doors of olive tree, with the upper and two side posts five square.
32. And the two doors of olive tree he graved with graving of Cherubs and Paulme trees and graved flowers, and covered them with gold, and laid gold over the Cherubs and also the Paulme trees.
33. And in like manner unto the door of the temple he made posts of olive tree four square,
34. and two doors of fir tree, and either door with two folding leaves
35. and graved thereon Cherubs, Paulme trees and flowers, and covered them with gold made plain by a ruler.
36. And then he built the inner court with three rows of hewed stone and one row of Cedar wood.
37. In the fourth year of his reign was the foundation of the house of the LORD laid, even in the month Zif,
38. and in the eleventh year in the month Bul which is the eighth month, it was full finished in all that pertained thereto, and fashioned as it should be in all points. And so was he seven years in building of it.

Psalms 68:21-27
21. The God that smiteth the(his) enemies upon the heads and upon the hairy scalps: such as go on still in their wickedness.
22. The Lord hath said: some will I bring away from Basan, some will I bring again from the deep of the sea.
23. That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of thine enemies, and that thy dogs may lick it up.
24. It is well seen, O God, how thou goest, how thou my God and King goest in the Sanctuary.
25. The singers go before, and then the minstrels among the maidens with the tumbrels.
26. O give thanks unto God the LORD(Lorde)(the LORDE) in the congregation, for the wells of Israel.
27. There little Benjamin, the princes of Judah, the princes of Zabulon, and the princes of Nephtali bear rule among them.

Proverbs 17:13-15
13. Who so rewardeth evil for good, the plague shall not depart from his house.
14. He that soweth discord and strife, is like one that diggeth up a water brook: but an open enemy is like the water that breaketh out and runneth(reneth) abroad.
15. The LORD hateth as well him that justifieth the ungodly, as him that condemneth the innocent.

John 10:24-42
24. Then came the jews round about him, and said unto him: How long dost thou make us doubt? If thou be Christ, tell us plainly.
25. Jesus answered them: I told you and ye believe not: The works that I do in my father's name, (they) bear witness of me:
26. but ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep. As I said unto you:
27. my sheep, hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me,
28. and I give unto them eternal(everlasting) life, and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
29. My father which gave them me, is greater than all men, and no man is able to take them out of my father's hand.
30. And I and my father are one.
31. Then the jews again took up stones, to stone him withal.
32. Jesus answered them: many good works have I shewed you from my father: for which of them will ye stone me?
33. The jews answered him saying: For thy good works' sake we stone thee not: but for thy blasphemy, and because that thou being a man, makest thyself God.
34. Jesus answered them: Is it not written in your law: I have said,(say) ye are gods?
35. If he called them gods unto whom the word of God was spoken (and the scripture cannot be broken)
36. say ye then to him, whom the father hath sanctified, and sent into the world: Thou blasphemest, because I said I am the son of God?
37. If I do not the works of my father, believe me not.
38. But (if I do) though ye believe not me, yet believe the works, that ye may know and believe that the father is in me, and I in him.(the father)
39. Again they went about to take him, but he escaped out of their hands,
40. and went away again beyond Jordan, into the place where John before had baptised, and there abode.
41. And many resorted unto him, and said: John did no miracle: But all things that John spake of this man are true..
42. And there many believed on him there.
