Tyndale Bible

2 Chronicles 7

God having given testimony to Solomon's prayer by fire from heaven, and glory in the Temple, the people worship him.

2 Chronicles 7:1 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the LORD filled the house. 2 Chronicles 7:2 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the priests could not enter into the house of the LORD, because the glory of the LORD had filled the LORD's house. 2 Chronicles 7:3 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And when all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the LORD upon the house, they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshiped, and praised the LORD, [saying], For [he is] good; for his mercy [endureth] forever.

Solomon's solemn sacrifice.

2 Chronicles 7:4 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Then the king and all the people offered sacrifices before the LORD. 2 Chronicles 7:5 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And king Solomon offered a sacrifice of twenty and two thousand oxen, and a hundred and twenty thousand sheep: so the king and all the people dedicated the house of God. 2 Chronicles 7:6 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the priests waited on their offices: the Levites also with instruments of music of the LORD, which David the king had made to praise the LORD, because his mercy [endureth] forever, when David praised by their ministry; and the priests sounded trumpets before them, and all Israel stood. 2 Chronicles 7:7 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Moreover Solomon hallowed the middle of the court that [was] before the house of the LORD: for there he offered burnt offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings, because the brazen altar which Solomon had made was not able to receive the burnt offerings, and the meat offerings, and the fat.

Solomon having kept the feast of Tabernacles, and the feast of the dedication of the altar, dismisseth the people.

2 Chronicles 7:8 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Also at the same time Solomon kept the feast seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great congregation, from the entering in of Hamath unto the river of Egypt. 2 Chronicles 7:9 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And in the eighth day they made a solemn assembly: for they kept the dedication of the altar seven days, and the feast seven days. 2 Chronicles 7:10 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And on the three and twentieth day of the seventh month he sent the people away into their tents, glad and merry in heart for the goodness that the LORD had showed unto David, and to Solomon, and to Israel his people. 2 Chronicles 7:11 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Thus Solomon finished the house of the LORD, and the king's house: and all that came into Solomon's heart to make in the house of the LORD, and in his own house, he prosperously effected.

God appearing to Solomon giveth him promises upon condition.

2 Chronicles 7:12 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the LORD appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for a house of sacrifice. 2 Chronicles 7:13 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; 2 Chronicles 7:14 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:15 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer [that is made] in this place. 2 Chronicles 7:16 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there forever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually. 2 Chronicles 7:17 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And as for thee, if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, and do according to all that I have commanded thee, and shalt observe my statutes and my judgments; 2 Chronicles 7:18 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Then will I establish the throne of thy kingdom, according as I have covenanted with David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man [to be] ruler in Israel. 2 Chronicles 7:19 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} But if ye turn away, and forsake my statutes and my commandments, which I have set before you, and shall go and serve other gods, and worship them; 2 Chronicles 7:20 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for my name, will I cast out of my sight, and will make it [to be] a proverb and a byword among all nations. 2 Chronicles 7:21 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And this house, which is high, shall be an astonishment to every one that passeth by it; so that he shall say, Why hath the LORD done thus unto this land, and unto this house? 2 Chronicles 7:22 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And it shall be answered, Because they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, which brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, and laid hold on other gods, and worshiped them, and served them: therefore hath he brought all this evil upon them.
