3:10 And when the builders [H1129] laid the foundation [H3245] of the temple [H1964] of the LORD [H3068] , they set [H5975] the priests [H3548] in their apparel [H3847] with trumpets [H2689] , and the Levites [H3881] the sons [H1121] of Asaph [H623] with cymbals [H4700] , to praise [H1984] the LORD [H3068] , after the ordinance [H3027] of David [H1732] king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] .

3:11 And they sang together by course [H6030] in praising [H1984] and giving thanks [H3034] unto the LORD [H3068] ; because [he is] good [H2896] , for his mercy [H2617] [endureth] for ever [H5769] toward Israel [H3478] . And all the people [H5971] shouted [H7321] with a great [H1419] shout [H8643] , when they praised [H1984] the LORD [H3068] , because the foundation [H3245] of the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] was laid [H3245] .

3:12 But many [H7227] of the priests [H3548] and Levites [H3881] and chief [H7218] of the fathers [H1] , [who were] ancient men [H2205] , that had seen [H7200] the first [H7223] house [H1004] , when the foundation [H3245] of this house [H1004] was laid [H3245] before their eyes [H5869] , wept [H1058] with a loud [H1419] voice [H6963] ; and many [H7227] shouted [H8643] aloud [H7311] for joy [H8057] :

3:13 So that the people [H5971] could not discern [H5234] the noise [H6963] of the shout [H8643] of joy [H8057] from the noise [H6963] of the weeping [H1065] of the people [H5971] : for the people [H5971] shouted [H7321] with a loud [H1419] shout [H8643] , and the noise [H6963] was heard [H8085] afar off [H7350] .
