The Holy Bible - The Second Book of the Chronicles, Chapter 5 (Latin)
1Thus all the work that Solomon made for the house of the LORD was finished: and Solomon brought in all the things that David his father had dedicated; and the silver, and the gold, and all the instruments, put he among the treasures of the house of God.
2Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel, and all the heads of the tribes, the chief of the fathers of the children of Israel, unto Jerusalem, to bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD out of the city of David, which is Zion.
3Wherefore all the men of Israel assembled themselves unto the king in the feast which was in the seventh month.
4And all the elders of Israel came; and the Levites took up the ark.
5And they brought up the ark, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and all the holy vessels that were in the tabernacle, these did the priests and the Levites bring up.
6Also king Solomon, and all the congregation of Israel that were assembled unto him before the ark, sacrificed sheep and oxen, which could not be told nor numbered for multitude.
7And the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the LORD unto his place, to the oracle of the house, into the most holy place, even under the wings of the cherubims:
8For the cherubims spread forth their wings over the place of the ark, and the cherubims covered the ark and the staves thereof above.
9And they drew out the staves of the ark, that the ends of the staves were seen from the ark before the oracle; but they were not seen without. And there it is unto this day.
10There was nothing in the ark save the two tables which Moses put therein at Horeb, when the LORD made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they came out of Egypt.
11And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place: (for all the priests that were present were sanctified, and did not then wait by course:
12Also the Levites which were the singers, all of them of Asaph, of Heman, of Jeduthun, with their sons and their brethren, being arrayed in white linen, having cymbals and psalteries and harps, stood at the east end of the altar, and with them an hundred and twenty priests sounding with trumpets:)
13It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD;
14So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of God.
1intulit igitur Salomon omnia quae voverat David pater suus argentum et aurum et universa vasa posuit in thesauris domus Dei
2post quae congregavit maiores natu Israhel et cunctos principes tribuum et capita familiarum de filiis Israhel in Hierusalem ut adducerent arcam foederis Domini de civitate David quae est Sion
3venerunt igitur ad regem omnes viri Israhel in die sollemni mensis septimi
4cumque venissent cuncti seniorum Israhel portaverunt Levitae arcam
5et intulerunt eam et omnem paraturam tabernaculi porro vasa sanctuarii quae erant in tabernaculo portaverunt sacerdotes cum Levitis
6rex autem Salomon et universus coetus Israhel et omnes qui fuerant congregati ante arcam immolabant arietes et boves absque ullo numero tanta enim erat multitudo victimarum
7et intulerunt sacerdotes arcam foederis Domini in locum suum id est ad oraculum templi in sancta sanctorum subter alas cherubin
8ita ut cherubin expanderent alas suas super locum in quo posita erat arca et ipsam arcam tegerent cum vectibus eius
9vectium autem quibus portabatur arca quia paululum longiores erant capita parebant ante oraculum si vero quis paululum fuisset extrinsecus eos videre non poterat fuit itaque arca ibi usque in praesentem diem
10nihilque erat aliud in arca nisi duae tabulae quas posuerat Moses in Horeb quando legem dedit Dominus filiis Israhel egredientibus ex Aegypto
11egressis autem sacerdotibus de sanctuario omnes enim sacerdotes qui ibi potuerant inveniri sanctificati sunt nec adhuc illo tempore vices et ministeriorum ordo inter eos divisus erat
12tam Levitae quam cantores id est et qui sub Asaph erant et qui sub Heman et qui sub Idithun filii et fratres eorum vestiti byssinis cymbalis et psalteriis et citharis concrepabant stantes ad orientalem plagam altaris cumque eis sacerdotes centum viginti canentes tubis
13igitur cunctis pariter et tubis et voce et cymbalis et organis et diversi generis musicorum concinentibus et vocem in sublime tollentibus longe sonitus audiebatur ita ut cum Dominum laudare coepissent et dicere confitemini Domino quoniam bonus quoniam in aeternum misericordia eius impleretur domus Domini nube
14nec possent sacerdotes stare et ministrare propter caliginem conpleverat enim gloria Domini domum Dei
