2 Chronicles 8

This chapter popped up the automated list to 60% completed by word when I had finished 1 Kings 9. That will continue to happen, particularly in Samuel, Kings and Chronicles, perhaps even with higher percentages, the further I get into the text. These two chapters are parallels but they betray differing authors, perhaps even differing sources of the same material.

One could make a sentence of verse 9 by ignoring the relative pronoun. But I didn't, so the sentence seems incomplete. There is no relative pronoun (אשׁר) in the parallel. Perhaps a scribe copied the relative pronoun from the prior verse. Both verses are about people's children. It could then be seen as an inadvertent nod to a community that had less regard for race and tribe, anticipating a covenant that is wider than national self-interest.

2 Chronicles 8 Min Max
וַיְהִ֞י מִקֵּ֣ץ ׀ עֶשְׂרִ֣ים שָׁנָ֗ה אֲשֶׁ֨ר בָּנָ֧ה שְׁלֹמֹ֛ה אֶת־בֵּ֥ית יְהוָ֖ה וְאֶת־בֵּיתֽוֹ 1 And it happened at the end of twenty years that Solomon had built the house of Yahweh and his house. 3c 4B 23
וְהֶעָרִ֗ים אֲשֶׁ֨ר נָתַ֤ן חוּרָם֙ לִשְׁלֹמֹ֔ה בָּנָ֥ה שְׁלֹמֹ֖ה אֹתָ֑ם
וַיּ֥וֹשֶׁב שָׁ֖ם אֶת־בְּנֵ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵֽל
2 The cities that Hiram gave to Solomon, Solomon had them built,
and he had the children of Israel settle there.
3e 4C 20

וַיֵּ֤לֶךְ שְׁלֹמֹה֙ חֲמָ֣ת צוֹבָ֔ה וַיֶּחֱזַ֖ק עָלֶֽיהָ 3 And Solomon went to Hamath-Zobah and was resolute over it. 3e 4C 17
וַיִּ֥בֶן אֶת־תַּדְמֹ֖ר בַּמִּדְבָּ֑ר
וְאֵת֙ כָּל־עָרֵ֣י הַֽמִּסְכְּנ֔וֹת אֲשֶׁ֥ר בָּנָ֖ה בַּחֲמָֽת

וַיִּ֜בֶן אֶת־בֵּ֤ית חוֹרוֹן֙ הָֽעֶלְי֔וֹן וְאֶת־בֵּ֥ית חוֹר֖וֹן הַתַּחְתּ֑וֹן
עָרֵ֣י מָצ֔וֹר חוֹמ֖וֹת דְּלָתַ֥יִם וּבְרִֽיחַ
5 And he built BethHoron the upper part, and BethHoron the lower part,

12
וְאֶֽת־בַּעֲלָ֗ת וְאֵ֨ת כָּל־עָרֵ֤י הַֽמִּסְכְּנוֹת֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר הָי֣וּ לִשְׁלֹמֹ֔ה וְאֵת֙ כָּל־עָרֵ֣י הָרֶ֔כֶב וְאֵ֖ת עָרֵ֣י הַפָּרָשִׁ֑ים
וְאֵ֣ת ׀ כָּל־חֵ֣שֶׁק שְׁלֹמֹ֗ה אֲשֶׁ֤ר חָשַׁק֙ לִבְנ֤וֹת בִּירֽוּשָׁלִַ֙ם֙ וּבַלְּבָנ֔וֹן וּבְכֹ֖ל אֶ֥רֶץ מֶמְשַׁלְתּֽוֹ
6 And Baalat and all the cities of storerooms that are of Solomon, and all the cities of the chariots, and the cities of the cavalry,
and all 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 37
29
כָּל־הָ֠עָם הַנּוֹתָ֨ר מִן־הַחִתִּ֜י וְהָאֱמֹרִ֤י וְהַפְּרִזִּי֙ וְהַחִוִּ֣י וְהַיְבוּסִ֔י אֲשֶׁ֛ר לֹ֥א מִיִּשְׂרָאֵ֖ל הֵֽמָּה 7 All the people remaining from the Hittite, and the Amorite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite, who are not from Israel, they, 3d 4C 36
מִן־בְּנֵיהֶ֗ם אֲשֶׁ֨ר נוֹתְר֤וּ אַחֲרֵיהֶם֙ בָּאָ֔רֶץ אֲשֶׁ֥ר לֹֽא־כִלּ֖וּם בְּנֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל
וַיַּעֲלֵ֤ם שְׁלֹמֹה֙ לְמַ֔ס עַ֖ד הַיּ֥וֹם הַזֶּֽה
8 from their children who remained after them in the land that the children of Israel did not consume,
Solomon brought them up into forced service to this day.
3e 4C 24
14
וּמִן־בְּנֵי֙ יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל אֲ֠שֶׁר לֹא־נָתַ֧ן שְׁלֹמֹ֛ה לַעֲבָדִ֖ים לִמְלַאכְתּ֑וֹ
כִּי־הֵ֜מָּה אַנְשֵׁ֤י מִלְחָמָה֙ וְשָׂרֵ֣י שָׁלִישָׁ֔יו וְשָׂרֵ֥י רִכְבּ֖וֹ וּפָרָשָֽׁיו
9 But from the children of Israel whom Solomon did not assign as servants for his affairs, ...
for they are men from battle, and his nobility his adjutants, and the chiefs of his chariot, and his cavaliers.
3c 4C 22
22
וְאֵ֨לֶּה שָׂרֵ֤י הַנִּצָּבִ֛ים אֲשֶׁר־לַמֶּ֥לֶךְ שְׁלֹמֹ֖ה חֲמִשִּׁ֣ים וּמָאתָ֑יִם
הָרֹדִ֖ים בָּעָֽם
10 And these were the chiefs of the monitors that were of king Solomon, two hundred and fifty, the rulers over the people. 3d 4C 24

וְאֶת־בַּת־פַּרְעֹ֗ה הֶעֱלָ֤ה שְׁלֹמֹה֙ מֵעִ֣יר דָּוִ֔יד לַבַּ֖יִת אֲשֶׁ֣ר בָּֽנָה־לָ֑הּ
כִּ֣י אָמַ֗ר לֹא־תֵשֵׁ֨ב אִשָּׁ֥ה לִי֙ בְּבֵית֙ דָּוִ֣יד מֶֽלֶךְ־יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל כִּי־קֹ֣דֶשׁ הֵ֔מָּה אֲשֶׁר־בָּֽאָ֥ה אֲלֵיהֶ֖ם אֲר֥וֹן יְהוָֽה
11 And the daughter of Pharaoh, Solomon brought up from the city of David to the house that was built for her,
for he said My wife will not settle in the house of David king of Israel, for they are holy, those to which came the ark of Yahweh.
3e 4C 23
32
אָ֣ז הֶעֱלָ֧ה שְׁלֹמֹ֛ה עֹל֖וֹת לַיהוָ֑ה
עַ֚ל מִזְבַּ֣ח יְהוָ֔ה אֲשֶׁ֥ר בָּנָ֖ה לִפְנֵ֥י הָאוּלָֽם
12 Then Solomon offered up burnt offerings to Yahweh,
upon the altar of Yahweh that he had built before the porch,
3c 4C 11
14
וּבִדְבַר־י֣וֹם בְּי֗וֹם לְהַעֲלוֹת֙ כְּמִצְוַ֣ת מֹשֶׁ֔ה לַשַּׁבָּתוֹת֙ וְלֶ֣חֳדָשִׁ֔ים וְלַמּ֣וֹעֲד֔וֹת שָׁל֥וֹשׁ פְּעָמִ֖ים בַּשָּׁנָ֑ה
בְּחַ֧ג הַמַּצּ֛וֹת וּבְחַ֥ג הַשָּׁבֻע֖וֹת וּבְחַ֥ג הַסֻּכּֽוֹת
13 so, in a word, day by day, to offer up according to the commandment of Moses, on the Sabbaths, and on the new moons, and for the appointed times, three times in the year,

3c 4B 37
16
וַיַּעֲמֵ֣ד כְּמִשְׁפַּ֣ט דָּֽוִיד־אָ֠בִיו אֶת־מַחְלְק֨וֹת הַכֹּהֲנִ֜ים עַל־עֲבֹדָתָ֗ם וְהַלְוִיִּ֣ם עַל־מִ֠שְׁמְרוֹתָם לְהַלֵּ֨ל וּלְשָׁרֵ֜ת נֶ֤גֶד הַכֹּֽהֲנִים֙ לִדְבַר־י֣וֹם בְּיוֹמ֔וֹ וְהַשּׁוֹעֲרִ֥ים בְּמַחְלְקוֹתָ֖ם לְשַׁ֣עַר וָשָׁ֑עַר
כִּ֣י כֵ֔ן מִצְוַ֖ת דָּוִ֥יד אִישׁ־הָאֱלֹהִֽים
14 And he installed, according to the framework of David his father, the divisions of the priests per their service, and the Levites per their watches, to praise, and to minister before the priests for the word, day by day, and the gatekeepers in their divisions, gate by gate,
for so had commanded David the man of God.
3e 4C 67
11
וְלֹ֣א סָרוּ֩ מִצְוַ֨ת הַמֶּ֜לֶךְ עַל־הַכֹּהֲנִ֧ים וְהַלְוִיִּ֛ם לְכָל־דָּבָ֖ר וְלָאֹצָרֽוֹת 15 And they did not put aside the commandments of the king, the priests and the Levites, for any matter, or for the treasuries. 3c 4B 27
וַתִּכֹּן֙ כָּל־מְלֶ֣אכֶת שְׁלֹמֹ֔ה עַד־הַיּ֛וֹם מוּסַ֥ד בֵּית־יְהוָ֖ה וְעַד־כְּלֹת֑וֹ
שָׁלֵ֖ם בֵּ֥ית יְהוָֽה
16 And all the lines of work for Solomon were established until the day of the foundation of the house of Yahweh, and until it was finished.
The house of Yahweh was made whole.
3d 4B 23
5
אָז֩ הָלַ֨ךְ שְׁלֹמֹ֜ה לְעֶצְיֽוֹן־גֶּ֧בֶר וְאֶל־אֵיל֛וֹת עַל־שְׂפַ֥ת הַיָּ֖ם בְּאֶ֥רֶץ אֱדֽוֹם 17 Then Solomon went to Etsion-geber and to Hart [Eiloth] by the bank of the sea in the land of Edom. 3c 3g 25
וַיִּֽשְׁלַֽח־לוֹ֩ חוּרָ֨ם בְּיַד־עֲבָדָ֜יו אֳנִיּ֗וֹת וַעֲבָדִים֮ י֣וֹדְעֵי יָם֒ וַיָּבֹ֜אוּ עִם־עַבְדֵ֤י שְׁלֹמֹה֙ אוֹפִ֔ירָה וַיִּקְח֣וּ מִשָּׁ֔ם אַרְבַּע־מֵא֥וֹת וַחֲמִשִּׁ֖ים כִּכַּ֣ר זָהָ֑ב
וַיָּבִ֖יאוּ אֶל־הַמֶּ֥לֶךְ שְׁלֹמֹֽה
18 And Hiram sent him by the hand of his servants, ships, and servants with knowledge of the sea, and they went with the servants of Solomon to Ophir and took from there four hundred and fifty talents of gold,
and they came to king Solomon.
