1 When Solomon had finished building the Temple of Yahweh, the royal palace and everything else which Solomon had wanted to do,
1Kgs 9:19 1Kgs 6:37-1 1Kgs 7:51 1Kgs 9:11 2Chr 7:11-6 Eccl 2:4 Eccl 2:10
2 Yahweh appeared to Solomon a second time, as he had appeared to him at Gibeon.
1Kgs 3:5 1Kgs 11:9 2Chr 7:12 2Chr 1:7-12
3 Yahweh said to him, 'I have heard your prayer and the entreaty which you have before me. I consecrate this temple which you have built: I place my name there for ever; my eyes and my heart will be there always.
1Kgs 8:29 Deut 11:12 Ps 10:17 2Kgs 20:5 1John 5:14 2Chr 6:40 Dan 9:23
4 For your part, if you walk before me in innocence of heart and in honesty, like your father David, if you do everything that I command and keep my laws and my ordinances,
1Kgs 11:4 1Kgs 11:6 1Kgs 15:5 Gen 17:1 1Kgs 3:14 1Kgs 11:38 1Kgs 14:8
5 I shall make your royal throne secure over Israel for ever, as I promised your father David when I said, "You will never lack for a man on the throne of Israel."
1Kgs 2:4 1Kgs 6:12 2Sam 7:12 2Sam 7:16 1Chr 22:9-10 1Kgs 8:15 1Kgs 8:20
6 But if you turn away from me, either you or your descendants, and instead of keeping my commandments and laws which I have laid down for you, you go and serve other gods and worship them,
1Chr 28:9 2Sam 7:14-16 1Kgs 11:4-10 1Sam 2:30 2Chr 7:19-22 2Chr 15:2 Josh 23:15-16
7 then I shall banish Israel from the country which I have given them, and shall disown this Temple which I have consecrated for my name, and Israel will be a proverb and a byword among all peoples.
Jer 24:9 Ps 44:14 Deut 4:26 Deut 28:37 2Kgs 25:9 2Kgs 25:21 Lev 18:24-28
8 As for this once-exalted Temple, everyone who passes by will be appalled, and they will whistle and say, "Why has Yahweh treated this country and this Temple like this?"
Jer 22:8-9 Deut 29:24-26 2Chr 7:21 Jer 22:28 Dan 9:12 Isa 64:11 Jer 19:8
9 And the answer will be, "Because they deserted Yahweh their God who brought their ancestors out of Egypt, and they adopted other gods and worshipped and served them; that is why Yahweh has brought all these disasters on them." '
Deut 29:25-28 Jer 2:10-13 2Chr 7:22 Ezek 36:17-20 Jer 2:19 Jer 5:19 Jer 12:7-8
10 At the end of the twenty years that it took Solomon to erect the two buildings, the Temple of Yahweh and the royal palace
1Kgs 6:37-1 1Kgs 9:1 2Chr 8:1-18
11 (Hiram king of Tyre had provided Solomon with all the cedar wood, juniper wood and gold that he wanted), King Solomon gave Hiram twenty towns in the territory of Galilee.
2Chr 8:2 1Kgs 5:6-10 2Chr 2:8-10 2Chr 2:16 Josh 20:7
12 But when Hiram came from Tyre to view the towns that Solomon had given him, he was not pleased with them.
Judg 14:3 Num 22:34
13 He said, 'What kind of towns are these you have given me, brother?' And to this day they are known as 'cabul-land'.
Josh 19:27 1Kgs 5:1-2 Amos 1:9
14 Hiram sent the king one hundred and twenty talents of gold.

15 This is an account of the forced labour levied by King Solomon for building the Temple of Yahweh, his own palace, the Millo and the fortifications of Jerusalem, Hazor, Megiddo, Gezer
1Kgs 5:13 1Kgs 9:24 2Sam 5:9 Josh 17:11 Josh 11:1 Josh 19:36 Josh 16:10
16 (Pharaoh king of Egypt mounted an expedition, captured Gezer, burnt it down and massacred the Canaanites living there; he then gave the town as a dowry to his daughter, Solomon's wife,
1Kgs 3:1 1Kgs 7:8 1Kgs 9:24 Josh 16:10

18 Baalath, Tamar in the desert, inside the country,
Josh 19:44 2Chr 8:4
19 all Solomon's storage towns owned by Solomon, all the towns for his chariots and horses, and whatever Solomon was pleased to build in Jerusalem, in the Lebanon and in all the countries under his rule.
1Kgs 9:1 1Kgs 4:26-28 1Kgs 10:26 2Chr 1:14 Eccl 2:10 Eccl 6:9 Exod 1:11
20 All those who survived of the Amorite, Hittite, Perizzite, Hivite and Jebusite peoples, who were not Israelites-
2Chr 8:7-18 Deut 7:1-3 Exod 23:23 Exod 23:28-33 Exod 34:11-12 Gen 15:19-21
21 their descendants still remaining in the country on whom the Israelites had not been able to enforce the curse of destruction -- these Solomon levied as forced labourers, as is still the case today.
Josh 15:63 Josh 17:12 Judg 1:21 Gen 9:25-26 Ezra 2:55-58 Neh 7:57 Neh 11:3
22 Solomon did not, however, impose forced labour on the Israelites; for they were soldiers, his officials, his administrators, his officers and his chariot and cavalry commanders.
Lev 25:39 1Kgs 4:1-27 1Sam 8:11-12 2Chr 8:9-10
23 There were five hundred and fifty officials in charge of the foremen over Solomon's work, who supervised the people employed on the work.
1Kgs 5:16 2Chr 8:10 2Chr 2:18
24 After Pharaoh's daughter had moved from the City of David up to the palace which he had built for her, he then built the Millo.
1Kgs 7:8 1Kgs 11:27 2Chr 32:5 2Sam 5:9 1Kgs 3:1 1Kgs 9:15-16 2Chr 8:11
25 Three times a year Solomon presented burnt offerings and communion sacrifices on the altar which he had built for Yahweh and set his burnt offerings smoking before Yahweh. Thus he completed the Temple.
2Chr 8:12-13 2Chr 8:16 Deut 16:16 Exod 23:14-17 1Chr 23:13 1Kgs 6:38 2Chr 26:16-21
26 King Solomon equipped a fleet at Ezion-Geber, which is near Elath on the shores of the Red Sea, in Edom.
1Kgs 22:48 Deut 2:8 Num 33:35 2Chr 8:11-12 2Chr 8:17-18 2Kgs 14:22
27 For this fleet Hiram sent men of his, experienced sailors, to serve with those in Solomon's service.
1Kgs 5:6 1Kgs 5:9 1Kgs 10:11 1Kgs 22:49 2Chr 20:36-37
