2 Chronicles 8
it came to pass at the end of twenty years, wherein Solomon had built the house of the LORD, and his own house,
2That the cities which Huram had restored to Solomon, Solomon built them, and caused
the children of Israel to dwell there.
Solomon went to Hamathzobah, and prevailed against it.
he built Tadmor in the wilderness, and all the store cities, which he built in Hamath.
5Also he built Bethhoron the upper, and Bethhoron the nether, fenced cities, with
walls, gates, and bars;
6And Baalath, and
all the store cities that Solomon had, and all the chariot cities, and the cities of the horsemen, and all that Solomon desired
to build in Jerusalem, and in Lebanon, and throughout all the land of his dominion.
7As for all the people that were left of the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the
Hivites, and the Jebusites, which were not of Israel,
of their children, who were left after them in the land, whom the children of Israel consumed not, them did Solomon make to
pay tribute until this day.
9But 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 captains of
his chariots and horsemen.
10And these were
the chief of king Solomon's officers, even two hundred and fifty, that bare rule over the people.
11And 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 the LORD hath come.
Solomon offered burnt offerings unto the LORD on the altar of the LORD, which he had built before the porch,
13Even after a certain rate every day, offering according to the commandment of
Moses, on the sabbaths, and on the new moons, and on the solemn 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.
14And he appointed, according to the order of David his father, the courses of the priests to their
service, and the Levites to their charges, to praise and minister before the priests, as the duty of every day required: the
porters also by their courses at every gate: for so had David the man of God commanded.
15And they departed not from the commandment of the king unto the priests and Levites
concerning any matter, or concerning the treasures.
all the work of Solomon was prepared unto the day of the foundation of the house of the LORD, and until it was finished. So
the house of the LORD was perfected.
went Solomon to Eziongeber, and to Eloth, at the sea side in the land of Edom.
18And Huram sent him by the hands of his servants ships, and servants that had knowledge of the sea;
and they went with the servants of Solomon to Ophir, and took thence four hundred and fifty talents of gold, and brought them
to king Solomon.
