Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:1 - After Solomon finished building the LORD's temple, the royal palace, and all the other construction projects he had planned,

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:2 - the LORD appeared to Solomon a second time, in the same way he had appeared to him at Gibeon.

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:3 - The LORD said to him, "I have answered your prayer and your request for help that you made to me. I have consecrated this temple you built by making it my permanent home; I will be constantly present there.

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:4 - You must serve me with integrity and sincerity, just as your father David did. Do everything I commanded and obey my rules and regulations.

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:5 - Then I will allow your dynasty to rule over Israel permanently, just as I promised your father David, 'You will not fail to have a successor on the throne of Israel.'

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:6 - "But if you or your sons ever turn away from me, fail to obey the regulations and rules I instructed you to keep, and decide to serve and worship other gods,

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:7 - then I will remove Israel from the land I have given them, I will abandon this temple I have consecrated with my presence, and Israel will be mocked and ridiculed among all the nations.

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:8 - This temple will become a heap of ruins; everyone who passes by it will be shocked and will hiss out their scorn, saying, 'Why did the LORD do this to this land and this temple?'

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:9 - Others will then answer, 'Because they abandoned the LORD their God, who led their ancestors out of Egypt. They embraced other gods whom they worshiped and served. That is why the LORD has brought all this disaster down on them.'"

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:10 - After twenty years, during which Solomon built the LORD's temple and the royal palace,

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:11 - King Solomon gave King Hiram of Tyre twenty cities in the region of Galilee, because Hiram had supplied Solomon with cedars, evergreens, and all the gold he wanted.

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:12 - When Hiram went out from Tyre to inspect the cities Solomon had given him, he was not pleased with them.

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:13 - Hiram asked, "Why did you give me these cities, my friend?" He called that area the region of Cabul, a name which it has retained to this day.

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:14 - Hiram had sent to the king one hundred twenty talents of gold.

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:15 - Here are the details concerning the work crews King Solomon conscripted to build the LORD's temple, his palace, the terrace, the wall of Jerusalem, and the cities of Hazor, Megiddo, and Gezer.

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:16 - (Pharaoh, king of Egypt, had attacked and captured Gezer. He burned it and killed the Canaanites who lived in the city. He gave it as a wedding present to his daughter, who had married Solomon.)

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:17 - Solomon built up Gezer, lower Beth Horon,

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:18 - Baalath, Tadmor in the wilderness,

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:19 - all the storage cities that belonged to him, and the cities where chariots and horses were kept. He built whatever he wanted in Jerusalem, Lebanon, and throughout his entire kingdom.

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:20 - Now several non-Israelite peoples were left in the land after the conquest of Joshua, including the Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites.

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:21 - Their descendants remained in the land (the Israelites were unable to wipe them out completely). Solomon conscripted them for his work crews, and they continue in that role to this very day.

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:22 - Solomon did not assign Israelites to these work crews; the Israelites served as his soldiers, attendants, officers, charioteers, and commanders of his chariot forces.

Unchecked Copy Box1Ki 9:23 - These men were also in charge of Solomon's work projects; there were a total of 550 men who supervised the workers.
