|2 Chronicles 2 1 And Solomon determined
to build an house for the name of the LORD, and an house for his kingdom.
2 And Solomon told out threescore and ten thousand
men to bear burdens, and fourscore thousand to hew in the
mountain, and three thousand and six hundred to oversee
3 ¶ And Solomon sent to Huram the king of Tyre,
saying, As thou didst deal with David my father, and
didst send him cedars to build him an house to dwell
therein, even so deal with me.
4 Behold, I build an house to the name of the LORD my God, to dedicate it
to him, and to burn before him sweet incense, and
for the continual shewbread, and for the burnt offerings
morning and evening, on the sabbaths, and on the new
moons, and on the solemn feasts of the LORD our God. This is an
ordinance for ever to Israel.
5 And the house which I build is great: for
great is our God above all gods.
6 But who is able to build him an house, seeing
the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain him? who am
I then, that I should build him an house, save only to
burn sacrifice before him?
7 Send me now therefore a man cunning to work in
gold, and in silver, and in brass, and in iron, and in
purple, and crimson, and blue, and that can skill to
grave with the cunning men that are with me in
Judah and in Jerusalem, whom David my father did provide.
8 Send me also cedar trees, fir trees, and algum
trees, out of Lebanon: for I know that thy servants can
skill to cut timber in Lebanon; and, behold, my servants shall
be with thy servants,
9 Even to prepare me timber in abundance: for the
house which I am about to build shall be wonderful
10 And, behold, I will give to thy servants, the
hewers that cut timber, twenty thousand measures of
beaten wheat, and twenty thousand measures of barley, and
twenty thousand baths of wine, and twenty thousand baths
11 ¶ Then Huram the king of Tyre answered in
writing, which he sent to Solomon, Because the LORD hath loved his people,
he hath made thee king over them.
12 Huram said moreover, Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, that
made heaven and earth, who hath given to David the king a
wise son, endued with prudence and understanding, that
might build an house for the LORD, and an house for his kingdom.
13 And now I have sent a cunning man, endued with
understanding, of Huram my father's,
14 The son of a woman of the daughters of Dan, and
his father was a man of Tyre, skilful to work in
gold, and in silver, in brass, in iron, in stone, and in
timber, in purple, in blue, and in fine linen, and in
crimson; also to grave any manner of graving, and to find
out every device which shall be put to him, with thy
cunning men, and with the cunning men of my lord David
15 Now therefore the wheat, and the barley, the
oil, and the wine, which my lord hath spoken of, let him
send unto his servants:
16 And we will cut wood out of Lebanon, as much as
thou shalt need: and we will bring it to thee in floates
by sea to Joppa; and thou shalt carry it up to Jerusalem.
17 ¶ And Solomon numbered all the strangers that were
in the land of Israel, after the numbering wherewith
David his father had numbered them; and they were found
an hundred and fifty thousand and three thousand and six
18 And he set threescore and ten thousand of them to
be bearers of burdens, and fourscore thousand to
be hewers in the mountain, and three thousand and six
hundred overseers to set the people a work.
Chronicles 3 1 Then Solomon began to build the house of the LORD at Jerusalem in mount
Moriah, where the LORD appeared unto David his father, in the place
that David had prepared in the threshingfloor of Ornan
2 And he began to build in the second day
of the second month, in the fourth year of his reign.
3 ¶ Now these are the things wherein Solomon
was instructed for the building of the house of God. The
length by cubits after the first measure was
threescore cubits, and the breadth twenty cubits.
4 And the porch that was in the front of
the house, the length of it was according to
the breadth of the house, twenty cubits, and the height was
an hundred and twenty: and he overlaid it within with
5 And the greater house he cieled with fir tree,
which he overlaid with fine gold, and set thereon palm
trees and chains.
6 And he garnished the house with precious stones
for beauty: and the gold was gold of Parvaim.
7 He overlaid also the house, the beams, the
posts, and the walls thereof, and the doors thereof, with
gold; and graved cherubims on the walls.
8 And he made the most holy house, the length
whereof was according to the breadth of the house,
twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof twenty cubits: and
he overlaid it with fine gold, amounting to six
9 And the weight of the nails was fifty
shekels of gold. And he overlaid the upper chambers with
10 And in the most holy house he made two cherubims
of image work, and overlaid them with gold.
11 ¶ And the wings of the cherubims were
twenty cubits long: one wing of the one cherub was
five cubits, reaching to the wall of the house: and the
other wing was likewise five cubits, reaching to
the wing of the other cherub.
12 And one wing of the other cherub was
five cubits, reaching to the wall of the house: and the
other wing was five cubits also, joining to
the wing of the other cherub.
13 The wings of these cherubims spread themselves
forth twenty cubits: and they stood on their feet, and
their faces were inward.
14 And he made the vail of blue, and purple,
and crimson, and fine linen, and wrought cherubims
15 Also he made before the house two pillars of
thirty and five cubits high, and the chapiter that was
on the top of each of them was five cubits.
16 And he made chains, as in the oracle, and
put them on the heads of the pillars; and made an
hundred pomegranates, and put them on the chains.
17 And he reared up the pillars before the temple,
one on the right hand, and the other on the left; and
called the name of that on the right hand Jachin, and the
name of that on the left Boaz.
Mark 2 1 And again he entered
into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised
that he was in the house.
2 And straightway
many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no
room to receive them, no, not so much as about the
door: and he preached the word unto them.
3 And they come
unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne
4 And when they
could not come nigh unto him for the press, they
uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken
it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of
the palsy lay.
5 When Jesus saw
their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy
sins be forgiven thee.
6 But there were
certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in
7 Why doth this man
thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God
8 And immediately
when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned
within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these
things in your hearts?
9 Whether is it
easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins
be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed,
10 But that ye may
know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive
sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)
11 I say unto thee,
Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine
12 And immediately
he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them
all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified
God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.
13 And he went
forth again by the sea side; and all the multitude
resorted unto him, and he taught them.
14 And as he passed
by, he saw Levi the son of Alpheus sitting at the
receipt of custom, and said unto him, Follow me. And he
arose and followed him.
15 And it came to
pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many
publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and
his disciples: for there were many, and they followed
16 And when the
scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and
sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he
eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?
17 When Jesus heard
it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have
no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came
not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
18 And the
disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: and
they come and say unto him, Why do the disciples of John
and of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not?
19 And Jesus said
unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber fast,
while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have
the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.
20 But the days
will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from
them, and then shall they fast in those days.
21 No man also
seweth a piece of new cloth on an old garment: else the
new piece that filled it up taketh away from the old, and
the rent is made worse.
22 And no man
putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine doth
burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the
bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new
23 And it came to
pass, that he went through the corn fields on the sabbath
day; and his disciples began, as they went, to pluck the
ears of corn.
24 And the
Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the
sabbath day that which is not lawful?
25 And he said unto
them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had
need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with
26 How he went into
the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest,
and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to eat but
for the priests, and gave also to them which were with
27 And he said unto
them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the
28 Therefore the
Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.
Mark 3 1 And he entered again
into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a
2 And they watched
him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath days; that
they might accuse him.
3 And he saith unto
the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth.
4 And he saith unto
them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath day, or to
do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their
5 And when he had
looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for
the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man,
Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out:
and his hand was restored whole as the other.
6 And the Pharisees
went forth, and straightway took counsel with the
Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.
7 But Jesus
withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a
great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from
8 And from
Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond
Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude,
when they had heard what great things he did, came unto
9 And he spake to
his disciples, that a small ship should wait on him
because of the multitude, lest they should throng him.
10 For he had
healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to
touch him, as many as had plagues.
11 And unclean
spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and
cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.
12 And he straitly
charged them that they should not make him known.
13 And he goeth up
into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he
would: and they came unto him.
14 And he ordained
twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might
send them forth to preach,
15 And to have
power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:
16 And Simon he
17 And James the son
of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he
surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder:
18 And Andrew, and
Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and
James the son of Alpheus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon
19 And Judas
Iscariot, which also betrayed him: and they went into an
20 And the
multitude cometh together again, so that they could not
so much as eat bread.
21 And when his
friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on
him: for they said, He is beside himself.
22 ¶ And the
scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath
Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out
23 And he called
them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How
can Satan cast out Satan?
24 And if a kingdom
be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
25 And if a house
be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
26 And if Satan
rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand,
but hath an end.
27 No man can enter
into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he
will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil
28 Verily I say
unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of
men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall
29 But he that
shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never
forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:
30 Because they
said, He hath an unclean spirit.
31 ¶ There came
then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without,
sent unto him, calling him.
32 And the
multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold,
thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee.
33 And he answered
them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?
34 And he looked
round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold
my mother and my brethren!
35 For whosoever
shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my
sister, and mother.
