1 Kings 9:1-28
1. And it cometh to pass, at Solomon`s finishing to build the house of Jehovah, and the house of the king, and all the desire of Solomon that he delighted to do,
2. that Jehovah appeareth unto Solomon a second time, as He appeared unto him in Gibeon,
3. and Jehovah saith unto him, `I have heard thy prayer and thy supplication with which thou hast made supplication before Me; I have hallowed this house that thou hast built to put My name there -- unto the age, and Mine eyes and My heart have been there all the days.
4. `And thou -- if thou dost walk before Me as David thy father walked, in simplicity of heart, and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee -- My statutes and My judgments thou dost keep --
5. then I have established the throne of thy kingdom over Israel -- to the age, as I spake unto David thy father, saying, There is not cut off to thee a man from [being] on the throne of Israel.
6. `If ye at all turn back -- you and your sons -- from after Me, and keep not My commands -- My statutes, that I have set before you, and ye have gone and served other gods, and bowed yourselves to them,
7. then I have cut off Israel from the face of the ground that I have given to them, and the house that I have hallowed for My name I send away from My presence, and Israel hath been for a simile and for a byword among all the peoples;
8. as to this house, [that] is high, every one passing by it is astonished, and hath hissed, and they have said, Wherefore hath Jehovah done thus to this land and to this house?
9. and they have said, Because that they have forsaken Jehovah their God, who brought out their fathers from the land of Egypt, and they lay hold on other gods, and bow themselves to them, and serve them; therefore hath Jehovah brought in upon them all this evil.`
10. And it cometh to pass, at the end of twenty years, that Solomon hath built the two houses, the house of Jehovah, and the house of the king.
11. Hiram king of Tyre hath assisted Solomon with cedar-trees, and with fir-trees, and with gold, according to all his desire; then doth king Solomon give to Hiram twenty cities in the land of Galilee.
12. And Hiram cometh out from Tyre to see the cities that Solomon hath given to him, and they have not been right in his eyes,
13. and he saith, `What [are] these cities that thou hast given to me, my brother?` and one calleth them the land of Cabul unto this day.
14. And Hiram sendeth to the king a hundred and twenty talents of gold.
15. And this [is] the matter of the tribute that king Solomon hath lifted up, 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 hath gone up and doth capture Gezer, and doth burn it with fire, and the Canaanite who is dwelling in the city he hath slain, and giveth it [with] presents to his daughter, wife of Solomon.)
17. And Solomon buildeth Gezer, and Beth-Horon the lower,
18. and Baalath, and Tadmor in the wilderness, in the land;
19. and all the cities of stores that king Solomon hath, and the cities of the chariots, and the cities of the horsemen, and the desire of Solomon that he desired to build in Jerusalem, and in Lebanon, and in all the land of his dominion.
20. The whole of the people that is left of the Amorite, the Hittite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite, who [are] not of the sons of Israel --
21. their sons who are left behind them in the land, whom the sons of Israel have not been able to devote -- he hath even lifted up [on] them a tribute of service unto this day.
22. And out of the sons of Israel Solomon hath not appointed a servant, for they [are] the men of war, and his servants, and his heads, and his captains, and the heads of his chariots, and his horsemen.
23. These [are] the heads of the officers who [are] over the work of Solomon, fifty and five hundred, those ruling among the people who are labouring in the work.
24. Only, the daughter of Pharaoh went up out of the city of David unto her house that [Solomon] built for her; then he built Millo.
25. And Solomon caused to ascend, three times in a year, burnt-offerings and peace-offerings on the altar that he built to Jehovah, and he perfumed it with that which [is] before Jehovah, and finished the house.
26. And a navy hath king Solomon made in Ezion-Geber, that is beside Eloth, on the edge of the Sea of Suph, in the land of Edom.
27. And Hiram sendeth in the navy his servants, shipmen knowing the sea, with servants of Solomon,
28. and they come in to Ophir and take thence gold, four hundred and twenty talents, and bring [it] in unto king Solomon.

1 Kings 10:1-29
1. And the queen of Sheba is hearing of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of Jehovah, and cometh to try him with enigmas,
2. and she cometh to Jerusalem, with a very great company, camels bearing spices, and very much gold, and precious stone, and she cometh unto Solomon, and speaketh unto him all that hath been with her heart.
3. And Solomon declareth to her all her matters -- there hath not been a thing hid from the king that he hath not declared to her.
4. And the queen of Sheba seeth all the wisdom of Solomon, and the house that he built,
5. and the food of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the standing of his ministers, and their clothing, and his butlers, and his burnt-offering that he causeth to ascend in the house of Jehovah, and there hath not been in her any more spirit.
6. And she saith unto the king, `True hath been the word that I heard in my land, concerning thy matters and thy wisdom;
7. and I gave no credence to the words till that I have come, and my eyes see, and lo, it was not declared to me -- the half; thou hast added wisdom and goodness unto the report that I heard.
8. O the happiness of thy men, O the happiness of thy servants -- these -- who are standing before thee continually, who are hearing thy wisdom!
9. Jehovah thy God is blessed who delighted in thee, to put thee on the throne of Israel; in Jehovah`s loving Israel to the age He doth set thee for king, to do judgment and righteousness.
10. And she giveth to the king a hundred and twenty talents of gold, and spices very many, and precious stone; there came not like that spice any more for abundance that the queen of Sheba gave to king Solomon.
11. And also, the navy of Hiram that bore gold from Ophir, brought in from Ophir almug-trees very many, and precious stone;
12. and the king maketh the almug-trees a support for the house of Jehovah, and for the house of the king, and harps and psalteries for singers; there have not come such almug-trees, nor have there been seen [such] unto this day.
13. And king Solomon gave to the queen of Sheba all her desire that she asked, apart from that which he gave to her as a memorial of king Solomon, and she turneth and goeth to her land, she and her servants.
14. And the weight of the gold that hath come to Solomon in one year is six hundred sixty and six talents of gold,
15. apart from [that of] the tourists, and of the traffic of the merchants, and of all the kings of Arabia, and of the governors of the land.
16. And king Solomon maketh two hundred targets of alloyed gold -- six hundred of gold go up on the one target;
17. and three hundred shields of alloyed gold -- three pounds of gold go up on the one shield; and the king putteth them [in] the house of the forest of Lebanon.
18. And the king maketh a great throne of ivory, and overlayeth it with refined gold;
19. six steps hath the throne, and a round top [is] to the throne behind it, and hands [are] on this [side] and on that, unto the place of the sitting, and two lions are standing near the hands,
20. and twelve lions are standing there on the six steps, on this [side] and on that; it hath not been made so for any kingdom.
21. And all the drinking vessels of king Solomon [are] of gold, and all the vessels of the house of the forest of Lebanon [are] of refined gold -- there are none of silver; it was not reckoned in the days of Solomon for anything,
22. for a navy of Tarshish hath the king at sea with a navy of Hiram; once in three years cometh the navy of Tarshish, bearing gold, and silver, ivory, and apes, and peacocks.
23. And king Solomon is greater than any of the kings of the earth for riches and for wisdom,
24. and all the earth is seeking the presence of Solomon, to hear his wisdom that God hath put into his heart,
25. and they are bringing each his present, vessels of silver, and vessels of gold, and garments, and armour, and spices, horses, and mules, the matter of a year in a year.
26. And Solomon gathereth chariots, and horsemen, and he hath a thousand and four hundred chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen, and he placeth them in the cities of the chariot, and with the king in Jerusalem.
27. And the king maketh the silver in Jerusalem as stones, and the cedars he hath made as the sycamores that [are] in the low country, for abundance.
28. And the outgoing of the horses that king Solomon hath [is] from Egypt, and from Keveh; merchants of the king take from Keveh at a price;
29. and a chariot cometh up and cometh out of Egypt for six hundred silverlings, and a horse for fifty and a hundred, and so for all the kings of the Hittites, and for the kings of Aram; by their hand they bring out.

Psalms 69:1-4
1. To the Overseer. -- `On the Lilies,` by David. Save me, O God, for come have waters unto the soul.
2. I have sunk in deep mire, And there is no standing, I have come into the depths of the waters, And a flood hath overflown me.
3. I have been wearied with my calling, Burnt hath been my throat, Consumed have been mine eyes, waiting for my God.
4. Those hating me without cause Have been more than the hairs of my head, Mighty have been my destroyers, My lying enemies, That which I took not away -- I bring back.

Proverbs 17:18-19
18. A man lacking heart is striking hands, A surety he becometh before his friend.
19. Whoso is loving transgression is loving debate, Whoso is making high his entrance is seeking destruction.

John 11:30-57
30. and Jesus had not yet come to the village, but was in the place where Martha met him;
31. the Jews, therefore, who were with her in the house, and were comforting her, having seen Mary that she rose up quickly and went forth, followed her, saying -- `She doth go away to the tomb, that she may weep there.`
32. Mary, therefore, when she came where Jesus was, having seen him, fell at his feet, saying to him, `Sir, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died;`
33. Jesus, therefore, when he saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping, did groan in the spirit, and troubled himself, and he said,
34. `Where have ye laid him?` they say to him, `Sir, come and see;`
35. Jesus wept.
36. The Jews, therefore, said, `Lo, how he was loving him!`
37. and certain of them said, `Was not this one, who did open the eyes of the blind man, able to cause that also this one might not have died?`
38. Jesus, therefore, again groaning in himself, cometh to the tomb, and it was a cave, and a stone was lying upon it,
39. Jesus saith, `Take ye away the stone;` the sister of him who hath died -- Martha -- saith to him, `Sir, already he stinketh, for he is four days dead;`
40. Jesus saith to her, `Said I not to thee, that if thou mayest believe, thou shalt see the glory of God?`
41. They took away, therefore, the stone where the dead was laid, and Jesus lifted his eyes upwards, and said, `Father, I thank Thee, that Thou didst hear me;
42. and I knew that Thou always dost hear me, but, because of the multitude that is standing by, I said [it], that they may believe that Thou didst send me.`
43. And these things saying, with a loud voice he cried out, `Lazarus, come forth;`
44. and he who died came forth, being bound feet and hands with grave-clothes, and his visage with a napkin was bound about; Jesus saith to them, `Loose him, and suffer to go.`
45. Many, therefore, of the Jews who came unto Mary, and beheld what Jesus did, believed in him;
46. but certain of them went away unto the Pharisees, and told them what Jesus did;
47. the chief priests, therefore, and the Pharisees, gathered together a sanhedrim, and said, `What may we do? because this man doth many signs?
48. if we may let him alone thus, all will believe in him; and the Romans will come, and will take away both our place and nation.`
49. and a certain one of them, Caiaphas, being chief priest of that year, said to them, `Ye have not known anything,
50. nor reason that it is good for us that one man may die for the people, and not the whole nation perish.`
51. And this he said not of himself, but being chief priest of that year, he did prophesy that Jesus was about to die for the nation,
52. and not for the nation only, but that also the children of God, who have been scattered abroad, he may gather together into one.
53. From that day, therefore, they took counsel together that they may kill him;
54. Jesus, therefore, was no more freely walking among the Jews, but went away thence to the region nigh the wilderness, to a city called Ephraim, and there he tarried with his disciples.
55. And the passover of the Jews was nigh, and many went up to Jerusalem out of the country before the passover, that they might purify themselves;
56. they were seeking, therefore, Jesus, and said one with another, standing in the temple, `What doth appear to you -- that he may not come to the feast?`
57. and both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a command, that if any one may know where he is, he may shew [it], so that they may seize him.
