The Holy Bible - The First Book of the Kings, Chapter 9 (Latin)
1And it came to pass, when Solomon had finished the building of the house of the LORD, and the king's house, and all Solomon's desire which he was pleased to do,
2That the LORD appeared to Solomon the second time, as he had appeared unto him at Gibeon.
3And the LORD said unto him, I have heard thy prayer and thy supplication, that thou hast made before me: I have hallowed this house, which thou hast built, to put my name there for ever; and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.
4And if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, in integrity of heart, and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my statutes and my judgments:
5Then I will establish the throne of thy kingdom upon Israel for ever, as I promised to David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man upon the throne of Israel.
6But if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your children, and will not keep my commandments and my statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods, and worship them:
7Then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this house, which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of my sight; and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people:
8And at this house, which is high, every one that passeth by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss; and they shall say, Why hath the LORD done thus unto this land, and to this house?
9And they shall answer, Because they forsook the LORD their God, who brought forth their fathers out of the land of Egypt, and have taken hold upon other gods, and have worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath the LORD brought upon them all this evil.
10And it came to pass at the end of twenty years, when Solomon had built the two houses, the house of the LORD, and the king's house,
11(Now Hiram the king of Tyre had furnished Solomon with cedar trees and fir trees, and with gold, according to all his desire,) that then king Solomon gave Hiram twenty cities in the land of Galilee.
12And Hiram came out from Tyre to see the cities which Solomon had given him; and they pleased him not.
13And he said, What cities are these which thou hast given me, my brother? And he called them the land of Cabul unto this day.
14And Hiram sent to the king sixscore talents of gold.
15And this is the reason of the levy which king Solomon raised; for to build the house of the LORD, and his own house, and Millo, and the wall of Jerusalem, and Hazor, and Megiddo, and Gezer.
16For Pharaoh king of Egypt had gone up, and taken Gezer, and burnt it with fire, and slain the Canaanites that dwelt in the city, and given it for a present unto his daughter, Solomon's wife.
17And Solomon built Gezer, and Bethhoron the nether,
18And Baalath, and Tadmor in the wilderness, in the land,
19And all the cities of store that Solomon had, and cities for his chariots, and cities for his horsemen, and that which Solomon desired to build in Jerusalem, and in Lebanon, and in all the land of his dominion.
20And all the people that were left of the Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites, which were not of the children of Israel,
21Their children that were left after them in the land, whom the children of Israel also were not able utterly to destroy, upon those did Solomon levy a tribute of bondservice unto this day.
22But of the children of Israel did Solomon make no bondmen: but they were men of war, and his servants, and his princes, and his captains, and rulers of his chariots, and his horsemen.
23These were the chief of the officers that were over Solomon's work, five hundred and fifty, which bare rule over the people that wrought in the work.
24But Pharaoh's daughter came up out of the city of David unto her house which Solomon had built for her: then did he build Millo.
25And three times in a year did Solomon offer burnt offerings and peace offerings upon the altar which he built unto the LORD, and he burnt incense upon the altar that was before the LORD. So he finished the house.
26And king Solomon made a navy of ships in Eziongeber, which is beside Eloth, on the shore of the Red sea, in the land of Edom.
27And Hiram sent in the navy his servants, shipmen that had knowledge of the sea, with the servants of Solomon.
28And they came to Ophir, and fetched from thence gold, four hundred and twenty talents, and brought it to king Solomon.
1factum est autem cum perfecisset Salomon aedificium domus Domini et aedificium regis et omne quod optaverat et voluerat facere
2apparuit Dominus ei secundo sicut apparuerat ei in Gabaon
3dixitque Dominus ad eum exaudivi orationem tuam et deprecationem tuam qua deprecatus es coram me sanctificavi domum hanc quam aedificasti ut ponerem nomen meum ibi in sempiternum et erunt oculi mei et cor meum ibi cunctis diebus
4tu quoque si ambulaveris coram me sicut ambulavit pater tuus in simplicitate cordis et in aequitate et feceris omnia quae praecepi tibi et legitima mea et iudicia mea servaveris
5ponam thronum regni tui super Israhel in sempiternum sicut locutus sum David patri tuo dicens non auferetur de genere tuo vir de solio Israhel
6si autem aversione aversi fueritis vos et filii vestri non sequentes me nec custodientes mandata mea et caerimonias quas proposui vobis sed abieritis et colueritis deos alienos et adoraveritis eos
7auferam Israhel de superficie terrae quam dedi eis et templum quod sanctificavi nomini meo proiciam a conspectu meo eritque Israhel in proverbium et in fabulam cunctis populis
8et domus haec erit in exemplum omnis qui transierit per eam stupebit et sibilabit et dicet quare fecit Dominus sic terrae huic et domui huic
9et respondebunt quia dereliquerunt Dominum Deum suum qui eduxit patres eorum de terra Aegypti et secuti sunt deos alienos et adoraverunt eos et coluerunt idcirco induxit Dominus super eos omne malum hoc
10expletis autem annis viginti postquam aedificaverat Salomon duas domos id est domum Domini et domum regis
11Hiram rege Tyri praebente Salomoni ligna cedrina et abiegna et aurum iuxta omne quod opus habuerat tunc dedit Salomon Hiram viginti oppida in terra Galileae
12egressusque est Hiram de Tyro ut videret oppida quae dederat ei Salomon et non placuerunt ei
13et ait haecine sunt civitates quas dedisti mihi frater et appellavit eas terram Chabul usque in diem hanc
14misit quoque Hiram ad regem centum viginti talenta auri
15haec est summa expensarum quam obtulit rex Salomon ad aedificandam domum Domini et domum suam et Mello et murum Hierusalem et Eser et Mageddo et Gazer
16Pharao rex Aegypti ascendit et cepit Gazer succenditque eam igni et Chananeum qui habitabat in civitate interfecit et dedit eam in dote filiae suae uxori Salomonis
17aedificavit ergo Salomon Gazer et Bethoron inferiorem
18et Baalath et Palmyram in terra solitudinis
19et omnes vicos qui ad se pertinebant et erant absque muro munivit et civitates curruum et civitates equitum et quodcumque ei placuit ut aedificaret in Hierusalem et in Libano et in omni terra potestatis suae
20universum populum qui remanserat de Amorreis et Hettheis et Ferezeis et Eveis et Iebuseis qui non sunt de filiis Israhel
21horum filios qui remanserant in terra quos scilicet non potuerant filii Israhel exterminare fecit Salomon tributarios usque ad diem hanc
22de filiis autem Israhel non constituit Salomon servire quemquam sed erant viri bellatores et ministri eius et principes et duces et praefecti curruum et equorum
23erant autem principes super omnia opera Salomonis praepositi quingenti quinquaginta qui habebant subiectum populum et statutis operibus imperabant
24filia autem Pharaonis ascendit de civitate David in domum suam quam aedificaverat ei tunc aedificavit Mello
25offerebat quoque Salomon tribus vicibus per annos singulos holocausta et pacificas victimas super altare quod aedificaverat Domino et adolebat thymiama coram Domino perfectumque est templum
26classem quoque fecit rex Salomon in Asiongaber quae est iuxta Ahilam in litore maris Rubri in terra Idumea
27misitque Hiram in classe illa servos suos viros nauticos et gnaros maris cum servis Salomonis
28qui cum venissent in Ophir sumptum inde aurum quadringentorum viginti talentorum detulerunt ad regem Salomonem
