8:1 And it came to pass at the end [H7093] of twenty [H6242] years [H8141] , wherein Solomon [H8010] had built [H1129] the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] , and his own house [H1004] ,
8:2 That the cities [H5892] which Huram [H2361] had restored [H5414] to Solomon [H8010] , Solomon [H8010] built [H1129] them, and caused the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] to dwell [H3427] there.
8:3 And Solomon [H8010] went [H3212] to Hamathzobah [H2578] , and prevailed [H2388] against it.
8:4 And he built [H1129] Tadmor [H8412] in the wilderness [H4057] , and all the store [H4543] cities [H5892] , which he built [H1129] in Hamath [H2574] .
8:5 Also he built [H1129] Bethhoron [H1032] the upper [H5945] , and Bethhoron [H1032] the nether [H8481] , fenced [H4692] cities [H5892] , with walls [H2346] , gates [H1817] , and bars [H1280] ;
8:6 And Baalath [H1191] , and all the store [H4543] cities [H5892] that Solomon [H8010] had, and all the chariot [H7393] cities [H5892] , and the cities [H5892] of the horsemen [H6571] , and all that Solomon [H8010] desired [H2836] [H2837] to build [H1129] in Jerusalem [H3389] , and in Lebanon [H3844] , and throughout all the land [H776] of his dominion [H4475] .(all that: Heb. all the desire of Solomon which he desired to build)
8:7 [As for] all the people [H5971] [that were] left [H3498] of the Hittites [H2850] , and the Amorites [H567] , and the Perizzites [H6522] , and the Hivites [H2340] , and the Jebusites [H2983] , which [were] not of Israel [H3478] ,
8:8 [But] of their children [H1121] , who were left [H3498] after [H310] them in the land [H776] , whom the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] consumed [H3615] not, them did Solomon [H8010] make to pay [H5927] tribute [H4522] until this day [H3117] .
8:9 But of the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] did Solomon [H8010] make [H5414] no servants [H5650] for his work [H4399] ; but they [were] men [H582] of war [H4421] , and chief [H8269] of his captains [H7991] , and captains [H8269] of his chariots [H7393] and horsemen [H6571] .
8:10 And these [were] the chief [H8269] of king [H4428] Solomon's [H8010] officers [H5324] [H5333] , [even] two hundred [H3967] and fifty [H2572] , that bare rule [H7287] over the people [H5971] .
8:11 And Solomon [H8010] brought up [H5927] the daughter [H1323] of Pharaoh [H6547] out of the city [H5892] of David [H1732] unto the house [H1004] that he had built [H1129] for her: for he said [H559] , My wife [H802] shall not dwell [H3427] in the house [H1004] of David [H1732] king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] , because [the places are] holy [H6944] , whereunto the ark [H727] of the LORD [H3068] hath come [H935] .(holy: Heb. holiness)
8:12 Then Solomon [H8010] offered [H5927] burnt offerings [H5930] unto the LORD [H3068] on the altar [H4196] of the LORD [H3068] , which he had built [H1129] before [H6440] the porch [H197] ,
8:13 Even after a certain rate [H1697] every day [H3117] , offering [H5927] according to the commandment [H4687] of Moses [H4872] , on the sabbaths [H7676] , and on the new moons [H2320] , and on the solemn feasts [H4150] , three [H7969] times [H6471] in the year [H8141] , [even] in the feast [H2282] of unleavened bread [H4682] , and in the feast [H2282] of weeks [H7620] , and in the feast [H2282] of tabernacles [H5521] .
8:14 And he appointed [H5975] , according to the order [H4941] of David [H1732] his father [H1] , the courses [H4256] of the priests [H3548] to their service [H5656] , and the Levites [H3881] to their charges [H4931] , to praise [H1984] and minister [H8334] before the priests [H3548] , as the duty [H1697] of every day [H3117] required [H3117] : the porters [H7778] also by their courses [H4256] at every gate [H8179] : for so had David [H1732] the man [H376] of God [H430] commanded [H4687] .(so had David: Heb. so was the commandment of David the man of God)
8:15 And they departed [H5493] not from the commandment [H4687] of the king [H4428] unto the priests [H3548] and Levites [H3881] concerning any matter [H1697] , or concerning the treasures [H214] .
8:16 Now all the work [H4399] of Solomon [H8010] was prepared [H3559] unto the day [H3117] of the foundation [H4143] of the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] , and until it was finished [H3615] . [So] the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] was perfected [H8003] .
8:17 Then went [H1980] Solomon [H8010] to Eziongeber [H6100] , and to Eloth [H359] , at the sea [H3220] side [H8193] in the land [H776] of Edom [H123] .(Eloth: also called, Elath, Deut.2.8.)
8:18 And Huram [H2361] sent [H7971] him by the hands [H3027] of his servants [H5650] ships [H591] [H591] , and servants [H5650] that had knowledge [H3045] of the sea [H3220] ; and they went [H935] with the servants [H5650] of Solomon [H8010] to Ophir [H211] , and took [H3947] thence four [H702] hundred [H3967] and fifty [H2572] talents [H3603] of gold [H2091] , and brought [H935] [them] to king [H4428] Solomon [H8010] .
