2 Chronicles 7 (WEBP)

[1] Now when Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and Yahweh’s glory filled the house.
[2] The priests could not enter into Yahweh’s house, because Yahweh’s glory filled Yahweh’s house.
[3] All the children of Israel looked on, when the fire came down, and Yahweh’s glory was on the house. They bowed themselves with their faces to the ground on the pavement, worshiped, and gave thanks to Yahweh, saying, “For he is good, for his loving kindness endures forever!”
[4] Then the king and all the people offered sacrifices before Yahweh.
[5] King Solomon offered a sacrifice of twenty-two thousand head of cattle and a hundred twenty thousand sheep. So the king and all the people dedicated God’s house.
[6] The priests stood, according to their positions; the Levites also with instruments of music of Yahweh, which David the king had made to give thanks to Yahweh, when David praised by their ministry, saying “For his loving kindness endures forever.” The priests sounded trumpets before them; and all Israel stood.
[7] Moreover Solomon made the middle of the court that was before Yahweh’s house holy; 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 receive the burnt offering, the meal offering, and the fat.
[8] So Solomon held the feast at that time for seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great assembly, from the entrance of Hamath to the brook of Egypt.
[9] 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] On the twenty-third day of the seventh month, he sent the people away to their tents, joyful and glad of heart for the goodness that Yahweh had shown to David, to Solomon, and to Israel his people.
[11] Thus Solomon finished Yahweh’s house and the king’s house; and he successfully completed all that came into Solomon’s heart to make in Yahweh’s house and in his own house.
[12] Then Yahweh appeared to Solomon by night, and said to him, “I have heard your prayer, and have chosen this place for myself for a house of sacrifice.
[13] “If I shut up the sky 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 will humble themselves, pray, 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 prayer that is made in this place.
[16] For now I have chosen and made this house holy, that my name may be there forever; and my eyes and my heart will be there perpetually.
[17] “As for you, if you will walk before me as David your father walked, and do according to all that I have commanded you, and will keep my statutes and my ordinances,
[18] then I will establish the throne of your kingdom, according as I covenanted with David your father, saying, ‘There shall not fail you 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 pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have made holy for my name, I will cast out of my sight, and I will make it a proverb and a byword among all peoples.
[21] This house, which is so high, everyone who passes by it will be astonished and say, ‘Why has Yahweh done this to this land and to this house?’
[22] They shall answer, ‘Because they abandoned Yahweh, the God of their fathers, who brought them out of the land of Egypt, and took other gods, worshiped them, and served them. Therefore he has brought all this evil on them.’ ”

2 Chronicles 7 (KJVS)

[1] Now when Solomon H8010 had made an end H3615 (8763) of praying H6419 (8692), the fire H784 came down H3381 (8804) from heaven H8064, and consumed H398 (8799) the burnt offering H5930 and the sacrifices H2077; and the glory H3519 of the LORD H3068 filled H4390 (8804) the house H1004.
[2] And the priests H3548 could H3201 (8804) not enter H935 (8800) into the house H1004 of the LORD H3068, because the glory H3519 of the LORD H3068 had filled H4390 (8804) the LORD’S H3068 house H1004.
[3] And when all the children H1121 of Israel H3478 saw H7200 (8802) how the fire H784 came down H3381 (8800), and the glory H3519 of the LORD H3068 upon the house H1004, they bowed H3766 (8799) themselves with their faces H639 to the ground H776 upon the pavement H7531, and worshipped H7812 (8691), and praised H3034 (8687) the LORD H3068, [saying], For [he is] good H2896; for his mercy H2617 [endureth] for ever H5769.
[4] Then the king H4428 and all the people H5971 offered H2076 (8802) sacrifices H2077 before H6440 the LORD H3068.
[5] And king H4428 Solomon H8010 offered H2076 (8799) a sacrifice H2077 of twenty H6242 and two H8147 thousand H505 oxen H1241, and an hundred H3967 and twenty H6242 thousand H505 sheep H6629: so the king H4428 and all the people H5971 dedicated H2596 (8799) the house H1004 of God H430.
[6] And the priests H3548 waited H5975 (8802) on their offices H4931: the Levites H3881 also with instruments H3627 of musick H7892 of the LORD H3068, which David H1732 the king H4428 had made H6213 (8804) to praise H3034 (8687) the LORD H3068, because his mercy H2617 [endureth] for ever H5769, when David H1732 praised H1984 (8763) by their ministry H3027; and the priests H3548 sounded trumpets H2690 (8688) (8675) H2690 (8764) before them, and all Israel H3478 stood H5975 (8802).
[7] Moreover Solomon H8010 hallowed H6942 (8762) the middle H8432 of the court H2691 that [was] before H6440 the house H1004 of the LORD H3068: for there he offered H6213 (8804) burnt offerings H5930, and the fat H2459 of the peace offerings H8002, because the brasen H5178 altar H4196 which Solomon H8010 had made H6213 (8804) was not able H3201 (8804) to receive H3557 (8687) the burnt offerings H5930, and the meat offerings H4503, and the fat H2459.
[8] Also at the same time H6256 Solomon H8010 kept H6213 (8799) the feast H2282 seven H7651 days H3117, and all Israel H3478 with him, a very H3966 great H1419 congregation H6951, from the entering in H935 (8800) of Hamath H2574 unto the river H5158 of Egypt H4714.
[9] And in the eighth H8066 day H3117 they made H6213 (8799) a solemn assembly H6116: for they kept H6213 (8804) the dedication H2598 of the altar H4196 seven H7651 days H3117, and the feast H2282 seven H7651 days H3117.
[10] And on the three H7969 and twentieth H6242 day H3117 of the seventh H7637 month H2320 he sent H7971 the people H5971 away H7971 (8765) into their tents H168, glad H8056 and merry H2896 in heart H3820 for the goodness H2896 that the LORD H3068 had shewed H6213 (8804) unto David H1732, and to Solomon H8010, and to Israel H3478 his people H5971.
[11] Thus Solomon H8010 finished H3615 (8762) the house H1004 of the LORD H3068, and the king’s H4428 house H1004: and all that came H935 (8802) into Solomon’s H8010 heart H3820 to make H6213 (8800) in the house H1004 of the LORD H3068, and in his own house H1004, he prosperously effected H6743 (8689).
[12] And the LORD H3068 appeared H7200 (8735) to Solomon H8010 by night H3915, and said H559 (8799) unto him, I have heard H8085 (8804) thy prayer H8605, and have chosen H977 (8804) this place H4725 to myself for an house H1004 of sacrifice H2077.
[13] If H2005 I shut up H6113 (8799) heaven H8064 that there be no rain H4306, or if I command H6680 (8762) the locusts H2284 to devour H398 (8800) the land H776, or if I send H7971 (8762) pestilence H1698 among my people H5971;
[14] If my people H5971, which are called H7121 (8738) by my name H8034, shall humble H3665 (8735) themselves, and pray H6419 (8691), and seek H1245 (8762) my face H6440, and turn H7725 (8799) from their wicked H7451 ways H1870; then will I hear H8085 (8799) from heaven H8064, and will forgive H5545 (8799) their sin H2403, and will heal H7495 (8799) their land H776.
[15] Now mine eyes H5869 shall be open H6605 (8803), and mine ears H241 attent H7183 unto the prayer H8605 [that is made] in this place H4725.
[16] For now have I chosen H977 (8804) and sanctified H6942 (8689) this house H1004, that my name H8034 may be there for H5704 ever H5769: and mine eyes H5869 and mine heart H3820 shall be there perpetually H3117.
[17] And as for thee, if thou wilt walk H3212 (8799) before H6440 me, as David H1732 thy father H1 walked H1980 (8804), and do H6213 (8800) according to all that I have commanded H6680 (8765) thee, and shalt observe H8104 (8799) my statutes H2706 and my judgments H4941;
[18] Then will I stablish H6965 (8689) the throne H3678 of thy kingdom H4438, according as I have covenanted H3772 (8804) with David H1732 thy father H1, saying H559 (8800), There shall not fail H3772 (8735) thee a man H376 [to be] ruler H4910 (8802) in Israel H3478.
[19] But if ye turn away H7725 (8799), and forsake H5800 (8804) my statutes H2708 and my commandments H4687, which I have set H5414 (8804) before H6440 you, and shall go H1980 (8804) and serve H5647 (8804) other H312 gods H430, and worship H7812 (8694) them;
[20] Then will I pluck them up by the roots H5428 (8804) out of my land H127 which I have given H5414 (8804) them; and this house H1004, which I have sanctified H6942 (8689) for my name H8034, will I cast out H7993 (8686) of my sight H6440, and will make H5414 (8799) it [to be] a proverb H4912 and a byword H8148 among all nations H5971.
[21] And this house H1004, which is high H5945, shall be an astonishment H8074 (8799) to every one that passeth H5674 (8802) by it; so that he shall say H559 (8804), Why hath the LORD H3068 done H6213 (8804) thus unto this land H776, and unto this house H1004?
[22] And it shall be answered H559 (8804), Because they forsook H5800 (8804) the LORD H3068 God H430 of their fathers H1, which brought them forth H3318 (8689) out of the land H776 of Egypt H4714, and laid hold H2388 (8686) on other H312 gods H430, and worshipped H7812 (8691) them, and served H5647 (8799) them: therefore hath he brought H935 (8689) all this evil H7451 upon them.

Young’s Literal Translation

2 Chronicles 7 (YLT)

[1] And at Solomon’s finishing to pray, then the fire hath come down from the heavens, and consumeth the burnt-offering and the sacrifices, and the honour of Jehovah hath filled the house,
[2] and the priests have not been able to go in unto the house of Jehovah, because the honour of Jehovah hath filled the house of Jehovah.
[3] And all the sons of Israel are looking on the descending of the fire, and the honour of Jehovah on the house, and they bow-faces to the earth-on the pavement, and do obeisance, and give thanks to Jehovah, for good, for to the age is His kindness.
[4] And the king and all the people are sacrificing a sacrifice before Jehovah,
[5] and king Solomon sacrificeth the sacrifice of the herd, twenty and two thousand, and of the flock, a hundred and twenty thousand, and the king and all the people dedicate the house of God.
[6] And the priests over their charges are standing, and the Levites with instruments of the song of Jehovah-that David the king made, to give thanks to Jehovah, for to the age is His kindness, in David’s praising by their hand-and the priests are blowing trumpets over-against them, and all Israel are standing.
[7] And Solomon sanctifieth the middle of the court that is before the house of Jehovah, for he hath made there the burnt-offerings, and the fat of the peace-offerings: for the altar of brass that Solomon made hath not been able to contain the burnt-offering, and the present, and the fat.
[8] And solomon maketh the feast at that time seven days, and all Israel with him-a very great assembly-from the entering in of Hamath unto the brook of Egypt.
[9] And they make on the eighth day a restraint, because the dedication of the altar they have made seven days, and the feast seven days.
[10] And on the twenty and third day of the seventh month he hath sent the people to their tents, rejoicing, and glad in heart, for the goodness that Jehovah hath done to David, and to Solomon, and to Israel His people.
[11] And Solomon finisheth the house of Jehovah, and the house of the king; and all that hath come on the heart of Solomon to do in the house of Jehovah, and in his own house, he hath caused to prosper.
[12] And Jehovah appeareth unto Solomon by night, and saith to him, ‘I have heard thy prayer, and have fixed on this place to Me for a house of sacrifice.
[13] If I restrain the heavens and there is no rain, and if I lay charge on the locust to consume the land, and if I send pestilence among My people-
[14] and My people on whom My name is called be humbled, and pray, and seek My face, and turn back from their evil ways, then I-I hear from the heavens, and forgive their sin, and heal their land.
[15] ‘Now, Mine eyes are open, and Mine ears attentive, to the prayer of this place;
[16] and now, I have chosen and sanctified this house for My name being there unto the age; yea, Mine eyes and My heart have been there all the days.
[17] ‘And thou, if thou dost walk before Me as David thy father walked, even to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and My statutes and My judgments dost keep-
[18] then I have established the throne of thy kingdom, as I covenanted with David thy father, saying, There is not cut off a man to thee-a ruler in Israel;
[19] and if ye turn back-ye-and have forsaken My statutes, and My commands, that I have placed before you, and have gone and served other gods, and bowed yourselves to them-then I have plucked them from off My ground that I have given to them,
[20] and this house that I have sanctified for My name, I cast from before My face, and make it for a proverb, and for a byword, among all the peoples.
[21] ‘And this house that hath been high, to every one passing by it, is an astonishment, and he hath said, Wherefore hath Jehovah done thus to this land, and to this house?
[22] and they have said, Because that they have forsaken Jehovah, God of their fathers, who brought them out from the land of Egypt, and lay hold on other gods, and bow themselves to them, and serve them, therefore He hath brought upon them all this evil.’
