2 Chronicles 8

CJB 1 At the end of twenty years, during which time Shlomo had built the house of ADONAI and his own palace, NIV 1 At the end of twenty years, during which Solomon built the temple of the LORD and his own palace, CJB 2 Shlomo built up the cities which Huram had given to Shlomo and had the people of Isra'el live there. NIV 2 Solomon rebuilt the villages that Hiram had given him, and settled Israelites in them. CJB 3 Then Shlomo attacked Hamat-Tzovah and defeated it. NIV 3 Solomon then went to Hamath Zobah and captured it. CJB 4 He built Tadmor in the desert and all the cities for storing supplies that he built in Hamat. NIV 4 He also built up Tadmor in the desert and all the store cities he had built in Hamath. CJB 5 He also built Upper Beit-Horon and Lower Beit-Horon, fortified cities with walls, gates and bars; NIV 5 He rebuilt Upper Beth Horon and Lower Beth Horon as fortified cities, with walls and with gates and bars, CJB 6 Ba'alat; and all the cities that Shlomo had for storing supplies, all the cities for his chariots, the cities for his horsemen, and all the other buildings Shlomo wanted to build in Yerushalayim, in the L'vanon and throughout the land he ruled. 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. CJB 7 As for all the people still left from the Hitti, Emori, P'rizi, Hivi, and Y'vusi, who were not part of Isra'el, NIV 7 There were still people left from the Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites (these people were not Israelites). CJB 8 from their descendants remaining after them in the land, whom the people of Isra'el did not exterminate - from them Shlomo levied [his forced laborers], as it is 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. CJB 9 But Shlomo did not raise any of his slaves from the people of Isra'el; rather, these were the soldiers, his chief commanders, and the officials in charge of his chariots and 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. CJB 10 King Shlomo had 250 chief officers in charge of the people. NIV 10 They were also King Solomon’s chief officials—two hundred and fifty officials supervising the men. CJB 11 Shlomo brought up Pharaoh's daughter from the City of David to the house he had built for her; because he said, "No wife of mine is going to live in the house of David king of Isra'el, since the [buildings] where the ark of ADONAI has been 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.” CJB 12 Then Shlomo offered burnt offerings to ADONAI on the altar of ADONAI that he had built in front of the vestibule, NIV 12 On the altar of the LORD that he had built in front of the portico, Solomon sacrificed burnt offerings to the LORD, CJB 13 as each day required, offering according to the mitzvah of Moshe on Shabbats, at Rosh-Hodesh and at the designated times three times a year - the festivals of Matzah, Shavu'ot and Sukkot. 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. CJB 14 As David his father had ordered, he appointed the divisions of the cohanim for their service and the L'vi'im to their tasks - to praise and to perform their service in the presence of the cohanim according to each day's requirements. He also appointed the gatekeepers by their divisions to be at every gate, for David the man of God had so ordered. 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. CJB 15 They did not deviate from the king's order to the cohanim and L'vi'im in any matter or in regard to the supplies. 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. CJB 16 All the work of Shlomo was organized in this way from the day ground was broken for the house of ADONAI until everything had been accomplished, and the house of ADONAI had been completed. 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. CJB 17 Shlomo went to 'Etzyon-Gever and Elot on the shore of the sea in the land of Edom. NIV 17 Then Solomon went to Ezion Geber and Elath on the coast of Edom. CJB 18 Huram sent some of his servants with ships, and others that were experienced sailors who understood the sea; they went with Shlomo's servants to Ofir and took from there fifteen tons of gold, which they brought back to King Shlomo. 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.
