1 Kings 9

Didn't I just read about not doing deals with the land? I wonder if the writer of Ezekiel 48 was thinking about Solomon and the deals, the long project plan, and the shortchanging of Hiram, who appears not to have been able to avoid the embarrassment. Imagine the wheeling and dealing, the violence, the obligations, the deadlines, and the places. A time of peace or a time of war? A time of acceptance or a time of prejudice? Solomon delighted in his commitments, I expect. But if he wrote Qohelet, he realized that for all his effort, that he was tending wind.

1 Kings 9 Min Max
וַיְהִי֙ כְּכַלּ֣וֹת שְׁלֹמֹ֔ה לִבְנ֥וֹת אֶת־בֵּית־יְהוָ֖ה וְאֶת־בֵּ֣ית הַמֶּ֑לֶךְ
וְאֵת֙ כָּל־חֵ֣שֶׁק שְׁלֹמֹ֔ה אֲשֶׁ֥ר חָפֵ֖ץ לַעֲשֽׂוֹת
1 And it happened when Solomon finished building the house of Yahweh and the house of the king,
and all Solomon had committed to that he delighted in to do,
3e 4B 20
15
וַיֵּרָ֧א יְהוָ֛ה אֶל־שְׁלֹמֹ֖ה שֵׁנִ֑ית
כַּאֲשֶׁ֛ר נִרְאָ֥ה אֵלָ֖יו בְּגִבְעֽוֹן
2 That Yahweh appeared to Solomon a second time,
as he had appeared to him in Gibeon.
3c 4A 11
10
וַיֹּ֨אמֶר יְהוָ֜ה אֵלָ֗יו שָׁ֠מַעְתִּי אֶת־תְּפִלָּתְךָ֣ וְאֶת־תְּחִנָּתְךָ֮ אֲשֶׁ֣ר הִתְחַנַּ֣נְתָּה לְפָנַי֒ הִקְדַּ֗שְׁתִּי אֶת־הַבַּ֤יִת הַזֶּה֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר בָּנִ֔תָה לָשֽׂוּם־שְׁמִ֥י שָׁ֖ם עַד־עוֹלָ֑ם
וְהָי֨וּ עֵינַ֧י וְלִבִּ֛י שָׁ֖ם כָּל־הַיָּמִֽים
3 And Yahweh said to him, I have heard your prayer and your supplication that you have graciously made to my face. I have sanctified this house that you have built to put my name there for evermore.
And my eyes and my heart will be there every day.
3c 4C 52
13
וְאַתָּ֞ה אִם־תֵּלֵ֣ךְ לְפָנַ֗י כַּאֲשֶׁ֨ר הָלַ֜ךְ דָּוִ֤ד אָבִ֙יךָ֙ בְּתָם־לֵבָ֣ב וּבְיֹ֔שֶׁר לַעֲשׂ֕וֹת כְּכֹ֖ל אֲשֶׁ֣ר צִוִּיתִ֑יךָ
חֻקַּ֥י וּמִשְׁפָּטַ֖י תִּשְׁמֹֽר
4 And you, if you will walk in my presence, as David your father walked in completeness of heart, and in uprightness, and do according to all that I have commanded you,
my statutes and my judgments, you keep,
3e 4C 37
8
וַהֲקִ֨מֹתִ֜י אֶת־כִּסֵּ֧א מַֽמְלַכְתְּךָ֛ עַל־יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל לְעֹלָ֑ם
כַּאֲשֶׁ֣ר דִּבַּ֗רְתִּי עַל־דָּוִ֤ד אָבִ֙יךָ֙ לֵאמֹ֔ר לֹֽא־יִכָּרֵ֤ת לְךָ֙ אִ֔ישׁ מֵעַ֖ל כִּסֵּ֥א יִשְׂרָאֵֽל
5 Then I will place the throne of your kingdom over Israel forever,
as I spoke to David your father, saying, There will not be cut off for you a man from the throne of Israel.
3c 4C 19
27
אִם־שׁ֨וֹב תְּשֻׁב֜וּן אַתֶּ֤ם וּבְנֵיכֶם֙ מֵֽאַחֲרַ֔י וְלֹ֤א תִשְׁמְרוּ֙ מִצְוֺתַ֣י חֻקֹּתַ֔י אֲשֶׁ֥ר נָתַ֖תִּי לִפְנֵיכֶ֑ם
וַהֲלַכְתֶּ֗ם וַעֲבַדְתֶּם֙ אֱלֹהִ֣ים אֲחֵרִ֔ים וְהִשְׁתַּחֲוִיתֶ֖ם לָהֶֽם
6 If, to turn away, you turn, you and your children, from following me, and you keep not my commandments, my statutes that I gave in your presence,
and you go and serve other gods and prostrate yourselves to them,
3e 4C 33
22
וְהִכְרַתִּ֣י אֶת־יִשְׂרָאֵ֗ל מֵעַ֨ל פְּנֵ֤י הָאֲדָמָה֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר נָתַ֣תִּי לָהֶ֔ם וְאֶת־הַבַּ֙יִת֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר הִקְדַּ֣שְׁתִּי לִשְׁמִ֔י אֲשַׁלַּ֖ח מֵעַ֣ל פָּנָ֑י
וְהָיָ֧ה יִשְׂרָאֵ֛ל לְמָשָׁ֥ל וְלִשְׁנִינָ֖ה בְּכָל־הָעַמִּֽים
7 Then I will cut off Israel from off the surface of the ground that I gave for them, and the house which I have sanctified for my name, I will send away from my presence,
and Israel will become a parable and a gibe among all the peoples.
3c 4C 42
18
וְהַבַּ֤יִת הַזֶּה֙ יִהְיֶ֣ה עֶלְי֔וֹן כָּל־עֹבֵ֥ר עָלָ֖יו יִשֹּׁ֣ם וְשָׁרָ֑ק
וְאָמְר֗וּ עַל־מֶ֨ה עָשָׂ֤ה יְהוָה֙ כָּ֔כָה לָאָ֥רֶץ הַזֹּ֖את וְלַבַּ֥יִת הַזֶּֽה
8 And this house, it is Most High. All who pass by it will be desolated, and will hiss,
and they will say, To what end did Yahweh do thus to this land and this house?
3e 4C 20
22
וְאָמְר֗וּ עַל֩ אֲשֶׁ֨ר עָזְב֜וּ אֶת־יְהוָ֣ה אֱלֹהֵיהֶ֗ם אֲשֶׁ֨ר הוֹצִ֣יא אֶת־אֲבֹתָם֮ מֵאֶ֣רֶץ מִצְרַיִם֒ וַֽיַּחֲזִ֙קוּ֙ בֵּאלֹהִ֣ים אֲחֵרִ֔ים וַיִּשְׁתַּחֲו֥וּ לָהֶ֖ם וַיַּעַבְדֻ֑ם
עַל־כֵּ֗ן הֵבִ֤יא יְהוָה֙ עֲלֵיהֶ֔ם אֵ֥ת כָּל־הָרָעָ֖ה הַזֹּֽאת
9 And they will say, In that they have forsaken Yahweh their God, who brought out their ancestors from the land of Egypt and they have encouraged other gods and prostrated themselves to them and served them.
So Yahweh has made all this evil come upon them.
3e 4C 50
16
וַיְהִ֗י מִקְצֵה֙ עֶשְׂרִ֣ים שָׁנָ֔ה אֲשֶׁר־בָּנָ֥ה שְׁלֹמֹ֖ה אֶת־שְׁנֵ֣י הַבָּתִּ֑ים
אֶת־בֵּ֥ית יְהוָ֖ה וְאֶת־בֵּ֥ית הַמֶּֽלֶךְ
10 And it happened at the culmination of twenty years that Solomon had built the two houses,
the house of Yahweh and the house of the king,
3e 4B 21
10
חִירָ֣ם מֶֽלֶךְ־צֹ֠ר נִשָּׂ֨א אֶת־שְׁלֹמֹ֜ה בַּעֲצֵי֩ אֲרָזִ֨ים וּבַעֲצֵ֧י בְרוֹשִׁ֛ים וּבַזָּהָ֖ב לְכָל־חֶפְצ֑וֹ
אָ֡ז יִתֵּן֩ הַמֶּ֨לֶךְ שְׁלֹמֹ֤ה לְחִירָם֙ עֶשְׂרִ֣ים עִ֔יר בְּאֶ֖רֶץ הַגָּלִֽיל
11 Hiram the king of Tyre had supplied Solomon with cedar trees and with fir trees and with gold for all his delight.
Then the king Solomon gave to Hiram twenty cities in the land of Galilee.
3c 4C 32
21
וַיֵּצֵ֤א חִירָם֙ מִצֹּ֔ר לִרְאוֹת֙ אֶת־הֶ֣עָרִ֔ים אֲשֶׁ֥ר נָתַן־ל֖וֹ שְׁלֹמֹ֑ה
וְלֹ֥א יָשְׁר֖וּ בְּעֵינָֽיו
12 And Hiram came forth from Tyre to see the cities that Solomon gave to him,
and they were not equitable in his eyes.
3e 4C 21
7
וַיֹּ֕אמֶר מָ֚ה הֶעָרִ֣ים הָאֵ֔לֶּה אֲשֶׁר־נָתַ֥תָּה לִּ֖י אָחִ֑י
וַיִּקְרָ֤א לָהֶם֙ אֶ֣רֶץ כָּב֔וּל עַ֖ד הַיּ֥וֹם הַזֶּֽה
13 And he said, What cities are these that you gave to me, my brother?
And he called them the land of Fetter to this day.
3e 4C 18
14
וַיִּשְׁלַ֥ח חִירָ֖ם לַמֶּ֑לֶךְ
מֵאָ֥ה וְעֶשְׂרִ֖ים כִּכַּ֥ר זָהָֽב
14 And Hiram sent to the king,
a hundred and twenty talents of gold.
3e 4A 8
9
וְזֶ֨ה דְבַר־הַמַּ֜ס אֲשֶֽׁר־הֶעֱלָ֣ה ׀ הַמֶּ֣לֶךְ שְׁלֹמֹ֗ה לִבְנוֹת֩ אֶת־בֵּ֨ית יְהוָ֤ה וְאֶת־בֵּיתוֹ֙ וְאֶת־הַמִּלּ֔וֹא וְאֵ֖ת חוֹמַ֣ת יְרוּשָׁלִָ֑ם
וְאֶת־חָצֹ֥ר וְאֶת־מְגִדּ֖וֹ וְאֶת־גָּֽזֶר
15 And this matter was the tax that the king Solomon brought up for building the house of Yahweh and his house and Millo and the wall of Jerusalem,
and Hazor and Megiddo and Gezer.
3e 4C 40
13
פַּרְעֹ֨ה מֶֽלֶךְ־מִצְרַ֜יִם עָלָ֗ה וַיִּלְכֹּ֤ד אֶת־גֶּ֙זֶר֙ וַיִּשְׂרְפָ֣הּ בָּאֵ֔שׁ וְאֶת־הַֽכְּנַעֲנִ֛י הַיֹּשֵׁ֥ב בָּעִ֖יר הָרָ֑ג
וַֽיִּתְּנָהּ֙ שִׁלֻּחִ֔ים לְבִתּ֖וֹ אֵ֥שֶׁת שְׁלֹמֹֽה
16 Pharaoh the king of Egypt came up and he conquered Gezer and incinerated it with fire, and slew the Canaanite who inhabited the city,
and gave it as a parting gift to his daughter, the wife of Solomon.
3d 4C 33
14
וַיִּ֤בֶן שְׁלֹמֹה֙ אֶת־גָּ֔זֶר וְאֶת־בֵּ֥ית חֹרֹ֖ן תַּחְתּֽוֹן 17 And Solomon began to build Gezer and BethHoron, the lower part, 3e 4C 16
וְאֶֽת־בַּעֲלָ֛ת וְאֶת־תַּדְמֹ֥ר בַּמִּדְבָּ֖ר בָּאָֽרֶץ 18 And Baalat and Tadmor in the wilderness, in the land, 3d 3g 15
וְאֵ֨ת כָּל־עָרֵ֤י הַֽמִּסְכְּנוֹת֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר הָי֣וּ לִשְׁלֹמֹ֔ה וְאֵת֙ עָרֵ֣י הָרֶ֔כֶב וְאֵ֖ת עָרֵ֣י הַפָּרָשִׁ֑ים
וְאֵ֣ת ׀ חֵ֣שֶׁק שְׁלֹמֹ֗ה אֲשֶׁ֤ר חָשַׁק֙ לִבְנ֤וֹת בִּירוּשָׁלִַ֙ם֙ וּבַלְּבָנ֔וֹן וּבְכֹ֖ל אֶ֥רֶץ מֶמְשַׁלְתּֽוֹ
19 And all the cities of storerooms that are of Solomon, and the cities of the chariots, and the cities of the cavalry,
and the commitment of Solomon that he was committed to build in Jerusalem, and in Lebanon, and in all the land of his governance.
3e 4C 31
28
כָּל־הָ֠עָם הַנּוֹתָ֨ר מִן־הָאֱמֹרִ֜י הַחִתִּ֤י הַפְּרִזִּי֙ הַחִוִּ֣י וְהַיְבוּסִ֔י אֲשֶׁ֛ר לֹֽא־מִבְּנֵ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל הֵֽמָּה 20 All the people remaining from the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, the Jebusites, who were not from the children of Israel, they, 3d 4C 34
בְּנֵיהֶ֗ם אֲשֶׁ֨ר נֹתְר֤וּ אַחֲרֵיהֶם֙ בָּאָ֔רֶץ אֲשֶׁ֧ר לֹֽא־יָכְל֛וּ בְּנֵ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל לְהַֽחֲרִימָ֑ם
וַיַּעֲלֵ֤ם שְׁלֹמֹה֙ לְמַס־עֹבֵ֔ד עַ֖ד הַיּ֥וֹם הַזֶּֽה
21 out of their children who remained after them in the land that the children of Israel were not able to destroy utterly,
Solomon brought them up into forced service, a servitude to this day.
3c 4C 29
16
וּמִבְּנֵי֙ יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל לֹֽא־נָתַ֥ן שְׁלֹמֹ֖ה עָ֑בֶד
כִּי־הֵ֞ם אַנְשֵׁ֣י הַמִּלְחָמָ֗ה וַעֲבָדָיו֙ וְשָׂרָ֣יו וְשָׁלִשָׁ֔יו וְשָׂרֵ֥י רִכְבּ֖וֹ וּפָרָשָֽׁיו
22 But from the children of Israel, Solomon did not assign to servitude,
for they were the men of the battle, and his servants and his nobility, and his adjutants, and the chiefs of his chariot, and his cavaliers.
3e 4B 13
28
אֵ֣לֶּה ׀ שָׂרֵ֣י הַנִּצָּבִ֗ים אֲשֶׁ֤ר עַל־הַמְּלָאכָה֙ לִשְׁלֹמֹ֔ה חֲמִשִּׁ֖ים וַחֲמֵ֣שׁ מֵא֑וֹת
הָרֹדִ֣ים בָּעָ֔ם הָעֹשִׂ֖ים בַּמְּלָאכָֽה
23 These were the chiefs of the monitors that were over the affairs of Solomon, five hundred and fifty,
the rulers over the people who constructed in the lines of work.
3e 4C 25
11
אַ֣ךְ בַּת־פַּרְעֹ֗ה עָֽלְתָה֙ מֵעִ֣יר דָּוִ֔ד אֶל־בֵּיתָ֖הּ אֲשֶׁ֣ר בָּֽנָה־לָ֑הּ
אָ֖ז בָּנָ֥ה אֶת־הַמִּלּֽוֹא
24 But the daughter of Pharaoh came up from the city of David to the house that was built for her,
then he built Millo.
3e 4B 18
7
וְהֶעֱלָ֣ה שְׁלֹמֹ֡ה שָׁלֹשׁ֩ פְּעָמִ֨ים בַּשָּׁנָ֜ה עֹל֣וֹת וּשְׁלָמִ֗ים עַל־הַמִּזְבֵּ֙חַ֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר בָּנָ֣ה לַיהוָ֔ה וְהַקְטֵ֣יר אִתּ֔וֹ אֲשֶׁ֖ר לִפְנֵ֣י יְהוָ֑ה
וְשִׁלַּ֖ם אֶת־הַבָּֽיִת
25 And Solomon offered up, three times in the year, burnt offerings and peace offerings over the altar that he had built for Yahweh, and he burnt incense on it, that is before Yahweh,
and the house was made whole.
3e 4B 42
7
וָאֳנִ֡י עָשָׂה֩ הַמֶּ֨לֶךְ שְׁלֹמֹ֜ה בְּעֶצְיֽוֹן־גֶּ֨בֶר אֲשֶׁ֧ר אֶת־אֵל֛וֹת עַל־שְׂפַ֥ת יַם־ס֖וּף בְּאֶ֥רֶץ אֱדֽוֹם 26 And the king Solomon made a ship in Etsion-geber that was with Elath,
on the bank of the sea of reeds in the land of Edom.
3c 3g 31
וַיִּשְׁלַ֨ח חִירָ֤ם בָּֽאֳנִי֙ אֶת־עֲבָדָ֔יו אַנְשֵׁ֣י אֳנִיּ֔וֹת יֹדְעֵ֖י הַיָּ֑ם
עִ֖ם עַבְדֵ֥י שְׁלֹמֹֽה
27 And Hiram sent by ship his servants, men of ships, knowing the sea, with the servants of Solomon. 3e 4C 21
6
וַיָּבֹ֣אוּ אוֹפִ֔ירָה וַיִּקְח֤וּ מִשָּׁם֙ זָהָ֔ב אַרְבַּע־מֵא֥וֹת וְעֶשְׂרִ֖ים כִּכָּ֑ר
וַיָּבִ֖אוּ אֶל־הַמֶּ֥לֶךְ שְׁלֹמֹֽה
28 And they came to Ophir and took from there four hundred and twenty talents of gold,
and they came to king Solomon.
3e 4C 22
11
