Preparations for the Temple

1Καὶ εἶπεν Σαλωμὼν τοῦ οἰκοδομῆσαι οἶκον τῷ ὀνόματι Κυρίου καὶ οἶκον τῇ βασιλείᾳ αὐτοῦ. 2καὶ συνήγαγεν Σαλωμὼν ἑβδομήκοντα χιλιάδας ἀνδρῶν καὶ ὀγδοήκοντα χιλιάδας λατόμων ἐν τῷ ὄρει, καὶ οἱ ἐπιστάται ἐπ᾽ αὐτῶν τρισχίλιοι ἑξακόσιοι.

3Καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Σαλωμὼν πρὸς Χειρὰμ βασιλέα Τύρου λέγων Ὡς ἐποίησας μετὰ τοῦ πατρός μου Δαυεὶδ καὶ ἀπέστειλας αὐτῷ κέδρους τοῦ οἰκοδομῆσαι αὑτῷ οἶκον κατοικῆσαι ἐν αὐτῷ, 4καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ὁ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ οἰκοδομῶ οἶκον τῷ ὀνόματι Κυρίου θεοῦ μου, ἁγιάσαι αὐτὸν αὐτῷ τοῦ θυμιᾷν ἀπέναντι αὐτοῦ θυμίαμα καὶ πρόθεσιν διὰ παντός, καὶ τοῦ ἀναφέρειν ὁλοκαυτώματα διὰ παντὸς τὸ πρωὶ καὶ τὸ δεὶλης, καὶ ἐν τοῖς σαββάτοις καὶ ἐν ταῖς νουμηνίαις καὶ ἐν ταῖς ἑορταῖς τοῦ κυρίου θεοῦ ἡμῶν, εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τοῦτο ἐπὶ τὸν Ἰσραήλ. 5καὶ ὁ οἶκος ὃν ἐγὼ οἰκοδομῶ μέγας, ὅτι μέγας ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν παρὰ πάντας τοὺς θεούς. 6καὶ τίς ἰσχύσει οἰκοδομῆσαι αὐτῷ οἶκον; ὅτι ὁ οὐρανὸς καὶ ὁ οὐρανὸς τοῦ οὐρανοῦ οὐ φέρουσιν αὐτοῦ τὴν δόξαν· καὶ τίς ἐγὼ οἰκοδομῶν αὐτῷ οἶκον; ὅτι ἀλλ᾽ ἢ τοῦ θυμιᾷν κατέναντι αὐτοῦ. 7καὶ νῦν ἀπόστειλόν μοι ἄνδρα σοφὸν καὶ εἰδότα τοῦ ποιῆσαι ἐν τῷ χρυσίῳ καὶ ἐν τῷ ἀργυρίῳ, ἐν τῷ χαλκῷ καὶ ἐν τῷ σιδήρῳ καὶ ἐν τῇ πορφύρᾳ καὶ ἐν τῷ κοκκίνῳ, καὶ ἐπιστάμενον γλύψαι γλυφὴν μετὰ τῶν σοφῶν τῶν μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ ἐν Ἰούδᾳ καὶ ἐν Ἰερουσαλήμ, ἃ ἡτοίμασεν Δαυεὶδ ὁ πατήρ μου. 8καὶ ἀπόστειλόν μοι ξύλα κέδρινα καὶ ἀρκεύθινα καὶ πεύκινα ἐκ τοῦ Λιβάνου, ὅτι ἐγὼ οἶδα ὡς οἱ δοῦλοί σου οἴδασιν κόπτειν ξύλα ἐκ τοῦ Λιβάνου· καὶ ἰδοὺ οἱ παῖδές σου μετὰ τῶν παίδων μου 9πορεύσονται ἑτοιμάσαι μοι ξύλα εἰς πλῆθος, ὅτι ὁ οἶκος ὃν ἐγὼ οἰκοδομῶ μέγας καὶ ἔνδοξος. 10καὶ ἰδοὺ τοῖς ἐργαζομένοις τοῖς κόπτουσιν ξύλα εἰς βρώματα δέδωκα σῖτον εἰς δόματα τοῖς παισίν σου, κόρων εἴκοσι χιλιάδας, καὶ κριθῶν κόρων εἴκοσι χιλιάδας, καὶ οἴνου μέτρων εἴκοσι χιλιάδας.

11καὶ εἶπεν Χειρὰμ βασιλεὺς Τύρου ἐν γραφῇ καὶ ἀπέστειλεν πρὸς Σαλωμών Ἐν τῷ ἀγαπῆσαι Κύριον τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ ἔδωκέν σε ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς βασιλέα. 12καὶ εἶπεν Χειράμ Εὐλογητὸς Κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ἰσραὴλ ὃς ἐποίησεν τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν, ὃς ἔδωκεν τῷ Δαυεὶδ υἱὸν σοφὸν καὶ ἐπιστάμενον σύνεσιν καὶ ἐπιστήμην, ὃς οἰκοδομήσει οἶκον τῷ κυρίῳ καὶ οἶκον τῇ βασιλείᾳ αὐτοῦ.

13καὶ νῦν ἀπέσταλκά σοι ἄνδρα σοφὸν καὶ εἰδότα σύνεσιν τὸν Χειρὰμ τὸν πατέρα μου· 14ἡ μήτηρ αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ θυγατέρων Δάν, καὶ ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ ἀνὴρ Τύριος, εἰδότα ποιῆσαι ἐν χρυσίῳ καὶ ἐν ἀργυρίῳ καὶ ἐν χαλκῷ καὶ ἐν σιδήρῳ, ἐν λίθοις καὶ ξύλοις, καὶ ὑφαίνειν ἐν τῇ πορφύρᾳ καὶ ἐν τῇ ὑακίνθῳ καὶ ἐν τῇ βύσσῳ καὶ ἐν τῷ κοκκίνῳ, καὶ γλύψαι γλυφάς, καὶ διανοεῖσθαι πᾶσαν διανόησιν, ὅσα ἂν δῷς αὐτῷ μετὰ τῶν σοφῶν σου καὶ σοφῶν Δαυεὶδ κυρίου μου πατρός σου. 15καὶ νῦν τὸν σῖτον καὶ τὴν κριθὴν καὶ τὸ ἔλαιον καὶ τὸν οἶνον, ἃ εἶπεν ὁ κύριός μου, ἀποστειλάτω τοῖς παισὶν αὐτοῦ. 16καὶ ἡμεῖς κόψομεν ξύλα ἐκ τοῦ Λιβάνου κατὰ πᾶσαν τὴν χρείαν σου, καὶ ἄξομεν αὐτὰ σχεδίαις ἐπὶ θάλασσαν Ἰόππης, καὶ σὺ ἄξεις αὐτὰ εἰς Ἰερουσαλήμ.

17καὶ συνήγαγεν Σαλωμὼν πάντας τοὺς ἄνδρας τοὺς προσηλύτους ἐν γῇ Ἰσραὴλ μετὰ τὸν ἀριθμὸν ὃν ἠρίθμησεν αὐτοὺς Δαυεὶδ ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ, καὶ εὑρέθησαν ἑκατὸν πεντήκοντα χιλιάδες καὶ τρισχίλιοι ἑξακόσιοι. 18καὶ ἐποίησεν ἐξ αὐτῶν ἑβδομήκοντα χιλιάδας νωτοφόρων, καὶ ὀγδοήκοντα χιλιάδας λατόμων, καὶ τρισχιλίους ἑξακοσίους ἐπὶ τὸν λαόν.
