And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this

given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour :
so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all

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 de-
sire which he was pleased to do, that the Lord appeared to Solo-
mon the second time, as he had appeared unto him at Gibeon.
And the Lord said unto him, I have heard thy prayer and thy sup-
phcation that thou hast made before me : I have hallowed this
house, which thou hast built, to put my name there forever ; and
mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually. And if
tl)ou roilt tDiilk before me, ns Dnuib tlin fatl)er toalkeb, in in-

judgments : then I will establish the throne of thy kingdom upon
Israel forever, as I promised to David thy father, saying, There shall
not fail thee a man upon the throne of Israel. But 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 : then will I cut
oif Israel out of the land which I have given them.

And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, ^OU) long

They served idols, whereof the Lord had said unto them, Ye

against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying.
Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments, and my

and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets. Notwith-

God, and made them molten images, even two calves, and made a

Thou, Solomon mj^ son, know thou the God of thy father, and

Now after the death of Jehoiada came the princes of Judah,
and made obeisance to the kino-. Then the kinof hearkened unto
them. And they left the house of the Lord God of their fathers,
and served groves and idols : and wrath came upon Judah and

because ye have forsaken the Lord, he hath also forsaken you.

Thou earnest down also upon mount Sinai, and spakest with

from heaven for their hunger, and broughtest forth water for them
out of the rock for their thirst, and promisedst them that they
should go in to possess the land which thou hadst sworn to give
them. J3ut they and our fathers dealt proudly, attb l)rtrbcncb

their enemies, who vexed thein : and in the time of their trouble,
when they cried unto thee, thou heardest them from heaven ; and
according to thy manifold mercies thou gavest them saviours, who
saved them out of the hand of their enemies. But after they had
rest, they did evil again before thee: therefore leftest thou them in
the hand of their enemies, so that they had the dominion over
them : yet when they returned and cried unto thee, thou heardest
them from heaven ; and many times didst thou deliver them ac-
cording to thy mercies ; and testifiedst against them, that thou
mightest bring them again unto thy law : jiet tl)ev) bcillt ^Jroubln,
