and forgive your people who have sinned against you, and all their transgressions that they have committed against you; and grant them compassion in the sight of their captors, so that they may have compassion on them
(for they are your people and heritage, which you brought out of Egypt, from the midst of the iron-smelter).
Let your eyes be open to the plea of your servant, and to the plea of your people Israel, listening to them whenever they call to you.
For you have separated them from among all the peoples of the earth, to be your heritage, just as you promised through Moses, your servant, when you brought our ancestors out of Egypt, O Lord God."
Now when Solomon finished offering all this prayer and this plea to the Lord, he arose from facing the altar of the Lord, where he had knelt with hands outstretched toward heaven;
he stood and blessed all the assembly of Israel with a loud voice:
"Blessed be the Lord, who has given rest to his people Israel according to all that he promised; not one word has failed of all his good promise, which he spoke through his servant Moses.
The Lord our God be with us, as he was with our ancestors; may he not leave us or abandon us,
but incline our hearts to him, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, his statutes, and his ordinances, which he commanded our ancestors.
Let these words of mine, with which I pleaded before the Lord, be near to the Lord our God day and night, and may he maintain the cause of his servant and the cause of his people Israel, as each day requires;
so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God; there is no other.
