Solomon’s Activities and Accomplishments
1 aNow it came° about at the end° of the twenty° years° in which° Solomon° had built° the house° of the LORD° and his own house° 2 that he built° the cities° which° Huram° had given° to Ihim, and settled° the sons° of Israel° there°.
3 ¶ Then Solomon° went° to Hamath-zobah° and captured° it. 4 He built° Tadmor° in the wilderness° and all° the storage° cities° which° he had built° in Hamath°. 5 He also built° upper° aBeth-horon° and lower° Beth-horon°, bfortified° cities° [with] walls°, gates° and bars°; 6 and Baalath° and all° the storage° cities° that Solomon° had°, and all° the cities° for Ihis chariots° and cities° for Ihis horsemen°, and all° that it pleased°° Solomon° to build° in Jerusalem°, in Lebanon°, and in all° the land° IIunder his rule°.
7 ¶ aAll° of the people° who were left° of the Hittites°, the Amorites°, the Perizzites°, the Hivites° and the Jebusites°, who° were not of Israel°, 8 [namely], from their descendants° who° were left° after° them in the land° whom° the sons° of Israel° had not destroyed°, athem Solomon° raised° as forced° laborers° to this° day°. 9 But Solomon° did not make° slaves° for his work° from the sons° of Israel°; they were men° of war°, his chief° captains° and commanders° of his chariots° and his horsemen°. 10 These° were the chief° Iofficers° of King° Solomon°, two hundred° and fifty° who ruled° over the people°.
11 ¶ aThen Solomon° brought° Pharaoh’s° daughter° up from the city° of David° to the house° which° he had built° for her, for he said°, “My wife° shall not dwell° in the house° of David° king° of Israel°, because° Ithe places° are holy° where° the ark° of the LORD° has entered°.”
12 ¶ Then° Solomon° offered° burnt° offerings° to the LORD° on athe altar° of the LORD° which° he had built° before° the porch°; 13 and a[did so] according to the daily° rule°, offering° [them] up baccording to the commandment° of Moses°, for cthe sabbaths°, dthe new° moons° and the ethree° annual°° feasts°the Feast° of Unleavened° Bread°, the Feast° of Weeks° and the Feast° of Booths°.
14 ¶ Now according to the ordinance° of his father° David°, he appointed° athe divisions° of the priests° for their service°, and bthe Levites° for their duties° of praise° and ministering° before° the priests° according to the daily° rule°, and cthe gatekeepers° by their divisions° at every° gate°; for dDavid° the man° of God° had so° commanded°. 15 And they did not depart° from the commandment° of the king° to the priests° and Levites° in any° manner° or concerning the storehouses°.
17 ¶ Then° Solomon° went° to aEzion-geber° and to bEloth° on the seashore°° in the land° of Edom°. 18 And Huram° by his servants° sent° him ships° and servants° who knew° the sea°; and they went° with Solomon’s° servants° to Ophir°, and atook° from there° four° hundred° and fifty° talents° of gold° and brought° them to King° Solomon°.
