2 Chronicles 6

CJB 1 Shlomo said, "ADONAI said he would live in thick darkness. NIV 1 Then Solomon said, “The LORD has said that he would dwell in a dark cloud; CJB 2 But I have built you a magnificent house, a place where you can live forever." NIV 2 I have built a magnificent temple for you, a place for you to dwell forever.” CJB 3 Then the king turned around and blessed the whole community of Isra'el. The whole community of Isra'el stood NIV 3 While the whole assembly of Israel was standing there, the king turned around and blessed them. CJB 4 as he said, "Blessed be ADONAI, the God of Isra'el, who spoke to my father David with his mouth and fulfilled his promise with his hand. He said, NIV 4 Then he said: “Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, who with his hands has fulfilled what he promised with his mouth to my father David. For he said, CJB 5 'Since the day I brought my people out of Egypt, I chose no city from any of the tribes of Isra'el to build a house, so that my name might be there; nor did I choose anyone to be the leader of my people Isra'el. NIV 5 ‘Since the day I brought my people out of Egypt, I have not chosen a city in any tribe of Israel to have a temple built so that my Name might be there, nor have I chosen anyone to be ruler over my people Israel. CJB 6 But now I have chosen Yerushalayim, so that my name can be there; and I have chosen David to be over my people Isra'el.' NIV 6 But now I have chosen Jerusalem for my Name to be there, and I have chosen David to rule my people Israel.’ CJB 7 It was in the heart of David my father to build a house for the name of ADONAI the God of Isra'el; NIV 7 “My father David had it in his heart to build a temple for the Name of the LORD, the God of Israel. CJB 8 but ADONAI said to David my father, 'Although it was in your heart to build a house for my name, and you did well that it was in your heart, NIV 8 But the LORD said to my father David, ‘You did well to have it in your heart to build a temple for my Name. CJB 9 nevertheless you will not build the house. Rather, you will father a son, and it will be he who will build the house for my name.' NIV 9 Nevertheless, you are not the one to build the temple, but your son, your own flesh and blood—he is the one who will build the temple for my Name.’ CJB 10 Now ADONAI has fulfilled this spoken word of his; for I have succeeded my father and sit on the throne of Isra'el, as ADONAI promised; and I have built the house for the name of ADONAI the God of Isra'el. NIV 10 “The LORD has kept the promise he made. I have succeeded David my father and now I sit on the throne of Israel, just as the LORD promised, and I have built the temple for the Name of the LORD, the God of Israel. CJB 11 And there I have placed the ark containing the covenant of ADONAI, which he made with the people of Isra'el." NIV 11 There I have placed the ark, in which is the covenant of the LORD that he made with the people of Israel.” CJB 12 Then he stood before the altar of ADONAI in the presence of the whole community of Isra'el, spread out his hands - NIV 12 Then Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in front of the whole assembly of Israel and spread out his hands. CJB 13 for Shlomo had made a bronze platform eight-and-three quarters feet long, eight-and-three-quarters feet wide and five-and-a-quarter feet high and had set it up in the middle of the courtyard. He stood on it, then got down on his knees before the whole community, spread out his hands toward heaven, NIV 13 Now he had made a bronze platform, five cubits long, five cubits wide and three cubits high, and had placed it in the center of the outer court. He stood on the platform and then knelt down before the whole assembly of Israel and spread out his hands toward heaven. CJB 14 and said, "ADONAI, God of Isra'el, there is no God like you in heaven or on earth. You keep covenant with your servants and show them grace, provided they live in your presence with all their heart. NIV 14 He said: “LORD, the God of Israel, there is no God like you in heaven or on earth—you who keep your covenant of love with your servants who continue wholeheartedly in your way. CJB 15 You have kept your promise to your servant David, my father; you spoke with your mouth and fulfilled it with your hand; so it is today. NIV 15 You have kept your promise to your servant David my father; with your mouth you have promised and with your hand you have fulfilled it—as it is today. CJB 16 Now therefore, ADONAI, God of Isra'el, keep what you promised to your servant David, my father, when you said, 'You will never lack a man in my presence to sit on the throne of Isra'el, if only your children are careful about what they do, so that they live by my Torah, just as you have lived in my presence.' NIV 16 “Now, LORD, the God of Israel, keep for your servant David my father the promises you made to him when you said, ‘You shall never fail to have a successor to sit before me on the throne of Israel, if only your descendants are careful in all they do to walk before me according to my law, as you have done.’ CJB 17 Now therefore, ADONAI, God of Isra'el, please let your word, which you spoke to your servant David, my father, be confirmed. NIV 17 And now, LORD, the God of Israel, let your word that you promised your servant David come true. CJB 18 "But can God actually live with human beings on the earth? Why, heaven itself, even the heaven of heavens, cannot contain you; so how much less this house I have built? NIV 18 “But will God really dwell on earth with humans? The heavens, even the highest heavens, cannot contain you. How much less this temple I have built! CJB 19 Even so, ADONAI my God, pay attention to your servant's prayer and plea, listen to the cry and prayer that your servant is praying before you, NIV 19 Yet, LORD my God, give attention to your servant’s prayer and his plea for mercy. Hear the cry and the prayer that your servant is praying in your presence. CJB 20 that your eyes will be open toward this house day and night - toward the place where you said you would put your name - to listen to the prayer your servant will pray toward this place. NIV 20 May your eyes be open toward this temple day and night, this place of which you said you would put your Name there. May you hear the prayer your servant prays toward this place. CJB 21 Yes, listen to the pleas of your servant, and also those of your people Isra'el when they pray toward this place. Hear from where you live, from heaven; and when you hear, forgive! NIV 21 Hear the supplications of your servant and of your people Israel when they pray toward this place. Hear from heaven, your dwelling place; and when you hear, forgive. CJB 22 "If a person sins against a fellow member of the community, and he is made to swear under oath, and he comes and swears before your altar in this house; NIV 22 “When anyone wrongs their neighbor and is required to take an oath and they come and swear the oath before your altar in this temple, CJB 23 then hear from heaven, act and judge your servants, paying back the wicked, so that his way of life devolves on his own head, and vindicating the one who is right, giving him what his righteousness deserves. NIV 23 then hear from heaven and act. Judge between your servants, condemning the guilty and bringing down on their heads what they have done, and vindicating the innocent by treating them in accordance with their innocence. CJB 24 "If your people Isra'el sin against you and in consequence are defeated by an enemy; then if they turn back to you, acknowledge your name, and pray and make their plea to you in this house, NIV 24 “When your people Israel have been defeated by an enemy because they have sinned against you and when they turn back and give praise to your name, praying and making supplication before you in this temple, CJB 25 hear from heaven, forgive the sin of your people Isra'el, and bring them back to the land you gave to them and their ancestors. NIV 25 then hear from heaven and forgive the sin of your people Israel and bring them back to the land you gave to them and their ancestors.

Forgive, and deal with everyone according to all they do, since you know their hearts (for you alone know the human heart), CJB 31 so that they will fear you and therefore live according to your ways throughout the time they live in the land you gave our ancestors. NIV 31 so that they will fear you and walk in obedience to you all the time they live in the land you gave our ancestors.
