||convocavit igitur David omnes principes Israhel duces tribuum et praepositos turmarum qui ministrabant regi tribunos quoque et centuriones et qui praeerant substantiae et possessionibus regis filiosque suos cum eunuchis et potentes et robustissimos quosque in exercitu Hierusalem
And David assembled all the chief men of Israel, the princes of the tribes, and the captains of the companies, who waited on the king: and the captains over thousands, and over hundreds, and them who had the charge over the substance and possessions of the king, and his sons with the officers of the court, and the men of power, and all the bravest of the army at Jerusalem.
||cumque surrexisset rex et stetisset ait audite me fratres mei et populus meus cogitavi ut aedificarem domum in qua requiesceret arca foederis Domini et scabillum pedum Dei nostri et ad aedificandum omnia praeparavi
And the king rising up, and standing said: Hear me, my brethren and my people: I had a thought to have built a house, in which the ark of the Lord, and the footstool of our God might rest: and prepared all things for the building.
||Deus autem dixit mihi non aedificabis domum nomini meo eo quod sis vir bellator et sanguinem fuderis
And God said to me: Thou shalt not build a house to my name: because thou art a man of war, and hast shed blood.
||sed elegit Dominus Deus Israhel me de universa domo patris mei ut essem rex super Israhel in sempiternum de Iuda enim elegit principes porro de domo Iuda domum patris mei et de filiis patris mei placuit ei ut me eligeret regem super cunctum Israhel
But the Lord God of Israel chose me of all the house of my father, to be king over Israel for ever: for of Juda he chose the princes: and of the house of Juda, my father's house: and among the sons of my father, it pleased him to choose me king over all Israel.
||sed et de filiis meis filios enim multos dedit mihi Dominus elegit Salomonem filium meum ut sederet in throno regni Domini super Israhel
And among my sons (for the Lord hath given me many sons) he hath chosen Solomon my son, to sit upon the throne of the kingdom of the Lord over Israel.
||dixitque mihi Salomon filius tuus aedificabit domum meam et atria mea ipsum enim elegi mihi in filium et ego ero ei in patrem
And he said to me: Solomon thy son shall build my house, and my courts: for I have chosen him to be my son, and I will be a father to him.
||et firmabo regnum eius usque in aeternum si perseveraverit facere praecepta mea et iudicia sicut et hodie
And I will establish his kingdom for ever, it he continue to keep my commandments, and my judgments, as at this day.
||nunc igitur coram universo coetu Israhel audiente Deo nostro custodite et perquirite cuncta mandata Domini Dei nostri ut possideatis terram bonam et relinquatis eam filiis vestris post vos usque in sempiternum
Now then before all the assembly of Israel, in the hearing of our God, keep ye, and seek all the commandments of the Lord our God: that you may possess the good land, and may leave it to your children after you for ever.
||tu autem Salomon fili mi scito Deum patris tui et servi ei corde perfecto et animo voluntario omnia enim corda scrutatur Dominus et universas mentium cogitationes intellegit si quaesieris eum invenies si autem dereliqueris illum proiciet te in aeternum
And thou my son Solomon, know the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart, and a willing mind: for the Lord searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the thoughts of minds. If thou seek him, thou shalt find him: but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.
||nunc ergo quia elegit te Dominus ut aedificares domum sanctuarii confortare et perfice
Now therefore seeing the Lord hath chosen thee to build the house of the sanctuary, take courage, and do it.
||dedit autem David Salomoni filio suo descriptionem porticus et templi et cellariorum et cenaculi et cubiculorum in adytis et domus propitiationis
And David gave to Solomon his son a description of the porch, and of the temple, and of the treasures, and of the upper floor, and of the inner chambers, and of the house for the mercy seat,
||necnon et omnium quae cogitaverat atriorum et exedrarum per circuitum in thesauros domus Domini et in thesauros sanctorum
As also of all the courts, which he had in his thought, and of the chambers round about, for the treasures of the house of the Lord, and for the treasures of the consecrated things,
||divisionumque sacerdotalium et leviticarum in omnia opera domus Domini et in universa vasa ministerii templi Domini
And of the divisions of the priests and of the Levites, for all the works of the house of the Lord, and for all the vessels of the service of the temple of the Lord.
||aurum in pondere per singula vasa ministerii argenti quoque pondus pro vasorum ad opera diversitate
Gold by weight for every vessel for the ministry. And silver by weight according to the diversity of the vessels and uses.
||sed et ad candelabra aurea et ad lucernas eorum aurum pro mensura uniuscuiusque candelabri et lucernarum similiter et in candelabris argenteis et in lucernis eorum pro diversitate mensurae pondus argenti tradidit
He gave also gold for the golden candlesticks, and their lamps, according to the dimensions of every candlestick, and the lamps thereof. In like manner also he gave silver by weight for the silver candlesticks, and for their lamps according to the diversity of the dimensions of them.
||aurum quoque dedit in mensas propositionis pro diversitate mensarum similiter et argentum in alias mensas argenteas
He gave also gold for the tables of proposition, according to the diversity of the tables: in like manner also silver for other tables of silver.
||ad fuscinulas quoque et fialas et turibula ex auro purissimo et leunculos aureos pro qualitate mensurae pondus distribuit in leunculum et leunculum similiter et in leones argenteos diversum argenti pondus separavit
For fleshhooks also, and bowls, and censors of fine gold, and for little lions of gold, according to the measure he gave by weight, for every lion. In like manner also for lions of silver he set aside a different weight of silver.
||altari autem in quo adoletur incensum aurum purissimum dedit ut ex ipso fieret similitudo quadrigae cherubin extendentium alas et velantium arcam foederis Domini
And for the altar of incense, he gave the purest gold: and to make the likeness of the chariot of the cherubims spreading their wings, and covering the ark of the covenant of the Lord.
||omnia inquit venerunt scripta manu Domini ad me ut intellegerem universa opera exemplaris
All these things, said he, came to me written by the hand of the Lord that I might understand all the works of the pattern.
||dixit quoque David Salomoni filio suo viriliter age et confortare et fac ne timeas et ne paveas Dominus enim Deus meus tecum erit et non dimittet te nec derelinquet donec perficias omne opus ministerii domus Domini
And David said to Solomon his son: Act like a man, and take courage, and do: fear not, and be not dismayed: for the Lord my God will be with thee, and will not leave thee, nor forsake thee, till thou hast finished all the work for the service of the house of the Lord.
||ecce divisiones sacerdotum et Levitarum in omne ministerium domus Domini adsistunt tibi et parati sunt et noverunt tam principes quam populus facere omnia praecepta tua
Behold the courses of the priests and the Levites, for every ministry of the house of the Lord, stand by thee, and are ready, and both the princes, and the people know how to execute all thy commandments.
