2 Chronicles 8

BBE 1 Now at the end of twenty years, in which time Solomon had put up the house of the Lord and a house for himself, NIV 1 At the end of twenty years, during which Solomon built the temple of the LORD and his own palace, BBE 2 He took in hand the building up of the towns which Huram had given him, causing the children of Israel to make living-places for themselves there. NIV 2 Solomon rebuilt the villages that Hiram had given him, and settled Israelites in them. BBE 3 And Solomon went to Hamath-zobah and overcame it. NIV 3 Solomon then went to Hamath Zobah and captured it. BBE 4 And he put up the buildings of Tadmor in the waste land, and of all the store-towns in Hamath; NIV 4 He also built up Tadmor in the desert and all the store cities he had built in Hamath. BBE 5 And of Beth-horon the higher and the lower, walled towns with walls and doorways and locks; NIV 5 He rebuilt Upper Beth Horon and Lower Beth Horon as fortified cities, with walls and with gates and bars, BBE 6 And of Baalath, and all the store-towns which Solomon had, and the towns where he kept his war-carriages and his horse men, and everything which it was his pleasure to put up in Jerusalem and in Lebanon and in all the land under his rule. NIV 6 as well as Baalath and all his store cities, and all the cities for his chariots and for his horses —whatever he desired to build in Jerusalem, in Lebanon and throughout all the territory he ruled. BBE 7 As for all the rest of the Hittites and the Amorites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites, who were not of Israel: NIV 7 There were still people left from the Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites (these people were not Israelites). BBE 8 Their men who were still living in the land, and whom the children of Israel had not put an end to, these Solomon put to forced work, as is done to this day; NIV 8 Solomon conscripted the descendants of all these people remaining in the land—whom the Israelites had not destroyed—to serve as slave labor, as it is to this day. BBE 9 But Solomon did not make use of the children of Israel as servants for his work; they were men of war, his chiefs and his captains, and captains of his war-carriages and his horsemen. NIV 9 But Solomon did not make slaves of the Israelites for his work; they were his fighting men, commanders of his captains, and commanders of his chariots and charioteers. BBE 10 Now these were the chief men in authority whom King Solomon had: two hundred and fifty of them, in authority over the people. NIV 10 They were also King Solomon’s chief officials—two hundred and fifty officials supervising the men. BBE 11 Then Solomon made Pharaoh's daughter come up from the town of David to the house which he had made for her; for he said, I will not have my wife living in the house of David, king of Israel, because those places where the ark of the Lord has come are holy. NIV 11 Solomon brought Pharaoh’s daughter up from the City of David to the palace he had built for her, for he said, “My wife must not live in the palace of David king of Israel, because the places the ark of the LORD has entered are holy.” BBE 12 Then Solomon made burned offerings to the Lord on the altar of the Lord which he had put up in front of the covered way, NIV 12 On the altar of the LORD that he had built in front of the portico, Solomon sacrificed burnt offerings to the LORD, BBE 13 Offering every day what had been ordered by Moses, on the Sabbaths and at the new moon and at the regular feasts three times a year, that is at the feast of unleavened bread, the feast of weeks, and the feast of tents. NIV 13 according to the daily requirement for offerings commanded by Moses for the Sabbaths, the New Moons and the three annual festivals—the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the Festival of Weeks and the Festival of Tabernacles. BBE 14 And he gave the divisions of the priests their places for their work, as ordered by his father David, and to the Levites he gave their work of praise and waiting on the priests, to do what was needed day by day; and he gave the door-keepers their places in turn at every door; for so David, the man of God, had given orders. NIV 14 In keeping with the ordinance of his father David, he appointed the divisions of the priests for their duties, and the Levites to lead the praise and to assist the priests according to each day’s requirement. He also appointed the gatekeepers by divisions for the various gates, because this was what David the man of God had ordered. BBE 15 All the orders given by the king to the priests and Levites, in connection with any business or stores, were done with care. NIV 15 They did not deviate from the king’s commands to the priests or to the Levites in any matter, including that of the treasuries. BBE 16 And all the work of Solomon was complete, from the day when he put the base of the Lord's house in position, till Solomon had come to the end of building the Lord's house. NIV 16 All Solomon’s work was carried out, from the day the foundation of the temple of the LORD was laid until its completion. So the temple of the LORD was finished. BBE 17 Then Solomon went to Ezion-geber and to Eloth by the sea in the land of Edom. NIV 17 Then Solomon went to Ezion Geber and Elath on the coast of Edom. BBE 18 And Huram sent him, by his servants, ships and experienced seamen, who went with the servants of Solomon to Ophir and came back with four hundred and fifty talents of gold, which they took to King Solomon. NIV 18 And Hiram sent him ships commanded by his own men, sailors who knew the sea. These, with Solomon’s men, sailed to Ophir and brought back four hundred and fifty talents of gold, which they delivered to King Solomon.
