2 Chronicles 5

NCV 1 Finally all the work Solomon did for the Temple of the Lord was fin- ished. He brought in everything his father David had set apart for the Temple -- all the silver and gold and other articles. And he put everything in the treasuries of God's Temple. NIV 1 When all the work Solomon had done for the temple of the LORD was finished, he brought in the things his father David had dedicated—the silver and gold and all the furnishings—and he placed them in the treasuries of God’s temple. NCV 2 Solomon called for the older leaders of Israel, the heads of the tribes, and the leaders of the families to come to him in Jerusalem. He wanted them to bring the Ark of the Agreement with the Lord from the older part of the city. NIV 2 Then Solomon summoned to Jerusalem the elders of Israel, all the heads of the tribes and the chiefs of the Israelite families, to bring up the ark of the LORD’s covenant from Zion, the City of David. NCV 3 So all the Israelites came together with the king during the festival in the seventh month. NIV 3 And all the Israelites came together to the king at the time of the festival in the seventh month. NCV 4 When all the older leaders of Israel arrived, the Levites lifted up the Ark. NIV 4 When all the elders of Israel had arrived, the Levites took up the ark, NCV 5 They carried the Ark of the Agreement, the Meeting Tent, and the holy utensils in it; the priests and the Levites brought them up. NIV 5 and they brought up the ark and the tent of meeting and all the sacred furnishings in it. The Levitical priests carried them up; NCV 6 King Solomon and all the Israelites gathered before the Ark of the Agreement and sacrificed so many sheep and bulls no one could count them. NIV 6 and King Solomon and the entire assembly of Israel that had gathered about him were before the ark, sacrificing so many sheep and cattle that they could not be recorded or counted. NCV 7 Then the priests put the Ark of the Agreement with the Lord in its place inside the Most Holy Place in the Temple, under the wings of the golden creatures. NIV 7 The priests then brought the ark of the LORD’s covenant to its place in the inner sanctuary of the temple, the Most Holy Place, and put it beneath the wings of the cherubim. NCV 8 The wings of these creatures were spread out over the place for the Ark, covering it and its carrying poles. NIV 8 The cherubim spread their wings over the place of the ark and covered the ark and its carrying poles. NCV 9 The carrying poles were so long that anyone standing in the Holy Place in front of the Most Holy Place could see the ends of the poles. But no one could see them from outside the Holy Place. The poles are still there today. NIV 9 These poles were so long that their ends, extending from the ark, could be seen from in front of the inner sanctuary, but not from outside the Holy Place; and they are still there today. NCV 10 The only things inside the Ark were two stone tabletsn that Moses had put in the Ark at Mount Sinai. That was where the Lord made his agreement with the Israelites after they came out of Egypt. NIV 10 There was nothing in the ark except the two tablets that Moses had placed in it at Horeb, where the LORD made a covenant with the Israelites after they came out of Egypt. NCV 11 Then all the priests left the Holy Place. (All the priests from each group had made themselves ready to serve the Lord.) NIV 11 The priests then withdrew from the Holy Place. All the priests who were there had consecrated themselves, regardless of their divisions. NCV 12 All the Levite musicians -- Asaph, Heman, Jeduthun, and all their sons and relatives -- stood on the east side of the altar. They were dressed in white linen and played cymbals, harps, and lyres. With them were one hundred twenty priests who blew trumpets. NIV 12 All the Levites who were musicians—Asaph, Heman, Jeduthun and their sons and relatives—stood on the east side of the altar, dressed in fine linen and playing cymbals, harps and lyres. They were accompanied by 120 priests sounding trumpets. NCV 13 Those who blew the trumpets and those who sang together sounded like one person as they praised and thanked the Lord. They sang as others played their trumpets, cymbals, and other instruments. They praised the Lord with this song: "He is good; his love continues forever." Then the Temple of the Lord was filled with a cloud. NIV 13 The trumpeters and musicians joined in unison to give praise and thanks to the LORD. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, the singers raised their voices in praise to the LORD and sang: “He is good; his love endures forever.” Then the temple of the LORD was filled with the cloud, NCV 14 The priests could not continue their work because of the cloud, because the Lord's glory filled the Temple of God. NIV 14 and the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the LORD filled the temple of God.
