The Holy Bible - The First Book of the Chronicles, Chapter 29 (Latin)
1Furthermore David the king said unto all the congregation, Solomon my son, whom alone God hath chosen, is yet young and tender, and the work is great: for the palace is not for man, but for the LORD God.
2Now I have prepared with all my might for the house of my God the gold for things to be made of gold, and the silver for things of silver, and the brass for things of brass, the iron for things of iron, and wood for things of wood; onyx stones, and stones to be set, glistering stones, and of divers colours, and all manner of precious stones, and marble stones in abundance.
3Moreover, because I have set my affection to the house of my God, I have of mine own proper good, of gold and silver, which I have given to the house of my God, over and above all that I have prepared for the holy house.
4Even three thousand talents of gold, of the gold of Ophir, and seven thousand talents of refined silver, to overlay the walls of the houses withal:
5The gold for things of gold, and the silver for things of silver, and for all manner of work to be made by the hands of artificers. And who then is willing to consecrate his service this day unto the LORD?
6Then the chief of the fathers and princes of the tribes of Israel and the captains of thousands and of hundreds, with the rulers of the king's work, offered willingly,
7And gave for the service of the house of God of gold five thousand talents and ten thousand drams, and of silver ten thousand talents, and of brass eighteen thousand talents, and one hundred thousand talents of iron.
8And they with whom precious stones were found gave them to the treasure of the house of the LORD, by the hand of Jehiel the Gershonite.
9Then the people rejoiced, for that they offered willingly, because with perfect heart they offered willingly to the LORD: and David the king also rejoiced with great joy.
10Wherefore David blessed the LORD before all the congregation: and David said, Blessed be thou, LORD God of Israel our father, for ever and ever.
11Thine, O LORD is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.
12Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.
13Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name.
14But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able to offer so willingly after this sort? for all things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee.
15For we are strangers before thee, and sojourners, as were all our fathers: our days on the earth are as a shadow, and there is none abiding.
16O LORD our God, all this store that we have prepared to build thee an house for thine holy name cometh of thine hand, and is all thine own.
17I know also, my God, that thou triest the heart, and hast pleasure in uprightness. As for me, in the uprightness of mine heart I have willingly offered all these things: and now have I seen with joy thy people, which are present here, to offer willingly unto thee.
18O LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, our fathers, keep this for ever in the imagination of the thoughts of the heart of thy people, and prepare their heart unto thee:
19And give unto Solomon my son a perfect heart, to keep thy commandments, thy testimonies, and thy statutes, and to do all these things, and to build the palace, for the which I have made provision.
20And David said to all the congregation, Now bless the LORD your God. And all the congregation blessed the LORD God of their fathers, and bowed down their heads, and worshipped the LORD, and the king.
21And they sacrificed sacrifices unto the LORD, and offered burnt offerings unto the LORD, on the morrow after that day, even a thousand bullocks, a thousand rams, and a thousand lambs, with their drink offerings, and sacrifices in abundance for all Israel:
22And did eat and drink before the LORD on that day with great gladness. And they made Solomon the son of David king the second time, and anointed him unto the LORD to be the chief governor, and Zadok to be priest.
23Then Solomon sat on the throne of the LORD as king instead of David his father, and prospered; and all Israel obeyed him.
24And all the princes, and the mighty men, and all the sons likewise of king David, submitted themselves unto Solomon the king.
25And the LORD magnified Solomon exceedingly in the sight of all Israel, and bestowed upon him such royal majesty as had not been on any king before him in Israel.
26Thus David the son of Jesse reigned over all Israel.
27And the time that he reigned over Israel was forty years; seven years reigned he in Hebron, and thirty and three years reigned he in Jerusalem.
28And he died in a good old age, full of days, riches, and honour: and Solomon his son reigned in his stead.
29Now the acts of David the king, first and last, behold, they are written in the book of Samuel the seer, and in the book of Nathan the prophet, and in the book of Gad the seer,
30With all his reign and his might, and the times that went over him, and over Israel, and over all the kingdoms of the countries.
1locutusque est David rex ad omnem ecclesiam Salomonem filium meum unum elegit Deus adhuc puerum et tenellum opus autem grande est neque enim homini praeparatur habitatio sed Deo
2ego autem totis viribus meis praeparavi inpensas domus Dei mei aurum ad vasa aurea et argentum in argentea aes in aenea ferrum in ferrea lignum ad lignea lapides onychinos et quasi stibinos et diversorum colorum omnem pretiosum lapidem et marmor parium abundantissime
3et super haec quae obtuli in domum Dei mei de peculio meo aurum et argentum do in templum Dei mei exceptis his quae paravi in aedem sanctam
4tria milia talenta auri de auro Ophir et septem milia talentorum argenti probatissimi ad deaurandos parietes templi
5ut ubicumque opus est aurum de auro et ubicumque opus est argentum argenti opera fiant per manus artificum et si quis sponte offert impleat manum suam hodie et offerat quod voluerit Domino
6polliciti sunt itaque principes familiarum et proceres tribuum Israhel tribuni quoque et centuriones et principes possessionum regis
7dederuntque in opera domus Dei auri talenta quinque milia et solidos decem milia argenti talenta decem milia et aeris talenta decem et octo milia ferri quoque centum milia talentorum
8et apud quemcumque inventi sunt lapides dederunt in thesaurum domus Domini per manum Ieihel Gersonitis
9laetatusque est populus cum vota sponte promitterent quia corde toto offerebant ea Domino sed et David rex laetatus est gaudio magno
10et benedixit Domino coram universa multitudine et ait benedictus es Domine Deus Israhel patris nostri ab aeterno in aeternum
11tua est Domine magnificentia et potentia et gloria atque victoria et tibi laus cuncta enim quae in caelo sunt et in terra tua sunt tuum Domine regnum et tu es super omnes principes
12tuae divitiae et tua est gloria tu dominaris omnium in manu tua virtus et potentia in manu tua magnitudo et imperium omnium
13nunc igitur Deus noster confitemur tibi et laudamus nomen tuum inclitum
14quis ego et quis populus meus ut possimus haec tibi universa promittere tua sunt omnia et quae de manu tua accepimus dedimus tibi
15peregrini enim sumus coram te et advenae sicut omnes patres nostri dies nostri quasi umbra super terram et nulla est mora
16Domine Deus noster omnis haec copia quam paravimus ut aedificaretur domus nomini sancto tuo de manu tua est et tua sunt omnia
17scio Deus meus quod probes corda et simplicitatem diligas unde et ego in simplicitate cordis mei laetus obtuli universa haec et populum tuum qui hic reppertus est vidi cum ingenti gaudio tibi offerre donaria
18Domine Deus Abraham et Isaac et Israhel patrum nostrorum custodi in aeternum hanc voluntatem cordis eorum et semper in venerationem tui mens ista permaneat
19Salomoni quoque filio meo da cor perfectum ut custodiat mandata tua testimonia tua caerimonias tuas et faciat universa et aedificet aedem cuius inpensas paravi
20praecepit autem David universae ecclesiae benedicite Domino Deo nostro et benedixit omnis ecclesia Domino Deo patrum suorum et inclinaverunt se et adoraverunt Deum et deinde regem
21immolaveruntque victimas Domino et obtulerunt holocausta die sequenti tauros mille arietes mille agnos mille cum libaminibus suis et universo ritu abundantissime in omnem Israhel
22et comederunt et biberunt coram Domino in die illo cum grandi laetitia et unxerunt secundo Salomonem filium David unxerunt autem Domino in principem et Sadoc in pontificem
23seditque Salomon super solium Domini in regem pro David patre suo et cunctis placuit et paruit illi omnis Israhel
24sed et universi principes et potentes et cuncti filii regis David dederunt manum et subiecti fuerunt Salomoni regi
25magnificavit ergo Dominus Salomonem super omnem Israhel et dedit illi gloriam regni qualem nullus habuit ante eum rex Israhel
26igitur David filius Isai regnavit super universum Israhel
27et dies quibus regnavit super Israhel fuerunt quadraginta anni in Hebron regnavit septem annis et in Hierusalem triginta tribus
28et mortuus est in senectute bona plenus dierum et divitiis et gloria regnavitque Salomon filius eius pro eo
29gesta autem David regis priora et novissima scripta sunt in libro Samuhel videntis et in libro Nathan prophetae atque in volumine Gad videntis
30universique regni eius et fortitudinis et temporum quae transierunt sub eo sive in Israhel sive in cunctis regnis terrarum
