God's Covenant in a vision with Solomon.
1 ¶ And it came to pass,² when Solomonº had finishedºª the buildingºª of² the houseº of the LORD,º and the king'sº house,º and all² Solomon'sº desireº which² he was pleasedºª to do,ºª 2 That the LORDº appearedºª to² Solomonº the second time,º as² he had appearedºª unto² him at Gibeon.º 3 And the LORDº saidºª unto² him, I have heardºª² thy prayerº and thy supplication,º that² thou hast made¹ª² beforeº me: I have hallowedºª² this² house,º which² thou hast built,ºª to putºª my nameº there² for¹ ever;º² and mine eyesº and mine heartº shall be² there² perpetually.º² 4 And if² thou² wilt walk¹ª² beforeº me, as² Davidº thy fatherº walked,ºª in integrityº of heart,º and in uprightness,º to doºª according to all² that² I have commandedºª thee, [and] wilt keepºª my statutesº and my judgments:º 5 Then I will establishºª² the throneº of thy kingdomº upon² Israelº for ever,º as² I promisedºª to² Davidº thy father,º saying,ºª There shall not² failºª thee a manº upon²² the throneº of Israel.º 6 [But] if² ye shall at all¹ª turnºª from followingº² me, ye² or your children,º and will not² keepºª my commandmentsº [and] my statutesº which² I have setºª beforeº you, but goºª and serveºª otherº gods,º and worshipºª them: 7 Then will I cut offºª² Israelº out¹ of²²² the landº which² I have givenºª them; and this house,º which² I have hallowedºª for my name,º will I cast² out¹ª of²² my sight;º and Israelº shall be² a proverbº and a bywordº among all² people:º 8 And at this² house,º [which] is² high,º every one² that passethºª by² it shall be astonished,ºª and shall hiss;ºª and they shall say,ºª Why² hath the LORDº doneºª thus² unto this² land,º and to this² house?º 9 And they shall answer,ºª Because²² they forsookºª² the LORDº their God,º who² brought forthºª² their fathersº out of the landº² of Egypt,º and have taken holdºª upon otherº gods,º and have worshippedºª them, and servedºª them: therefore²² hath the LORDº broughtºª upon² them² all² this² evil.º

In Solomon's works the Gentiles were his bondmen, the Israelites honourable servants.
15 ¶ And this² [is] the reasonº of the levyº which² kingº Solomonº raised;ºª for to buildºª² the houseº of the LORD,º and his own house,º and Millo,º and the wallº of Jerusalem,º and Hazor,º and Megiddo,º and Gezer.º 16 [For] Pharaohº kingº of Egyptº had gone up,ºª and takenºª² Gezer,º and burntºª it with fire,º and slainºª the Canaanitesº that dweltºª in the city,º and givenºª it [for] a presentº unto his daughter,º Solomon'sº wife.º 17 And Solomonº builtºª² Gezer,º and Bethhoronº the nether,º 18 And Baalath,º and Tadmorº in the wilderness,º in the land,º 19 And all² the citiesº of storeº that² Solomonº had,² and citiesº for his chariots,º and citiesº for his horsemen,º and that¹ which² Solomonº desiredºª to buildºª in Jerusalem,º and in Lebanon,º and in all² the landº of his dominion.º 20 [And] all² the peopleº [that were] leftºª of² the Amorites,º Hittites,º Perizzites,º Hivites,º and Jebusites,º which² [were] not² of the childrenº² of Israel,º 21 Their childrenº that² were leftºª afterº them in the land,º whom² the childrenº of Israelº also were not² ableºª utterly to destroy,ºª upon those did Solomonº levyºª a tribute¹ of bondserviceºª² unto² this² day.º 22 But of the childrenº² of Israelº did Solomonº makeºª no² bondmen:º but² they² [were] men¹² of war,º and his servants,º and his princes,º and his captains,º and rulersº of his chariots,º and his horsemen.º 23 These² [were] the chiefº of the officersºª that² [were] over² Solomon'sº work,º fiveº hundredº and fifty,º which bare ruleºª over the peopleº that wroughtºª in the work.º
