Fire from Heaven
(Psalm 136:1–26)

1And when Solomon finished to pray, and the fire will come down from the heavens and consume the burnt-offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of Jehovah filled the house. 2And the priests were not able to come in to the house of Jehovah, for the glory of Jehovah filled the house of Jehovah. 3And all the sons of Israel seeing in the fire coming down, and the glory of Jehovah upon the house, and they will bow down their faces to the earth upon the tesselated pavement, and they will worship and praise to Jehovah, for he is for his mercy is forever.

Sacrifices of Dedication
(1 Kings 8:62–66)

4And the king and all the people sacrificed sacrifices before Jehovah. 5And king Solomon will sacrifice a Sacrifice of oxen, twenty and two thousand; and sheep, a hundred and twenty thousand. And the king and all the people will consecrate the house of God. 6And the priests standing over their watches: and the Levites with instruments of song of Jehovah which David the king made to praise to Jehovah, for forever his mercy in David's praising by their hand; and the priests trumpeting before them, and all Israel standing.

7And Solomon will consecrate the midst of the enclosure which was before the house of Jehovah, for he did there the burnt-offerings and the fat of the peace, for the altar of brass which Solomon made was not able to contain the burnt-offering and the gift and the fat.

8And Solomon will do the festival in this time seven days, and all Israel with him, a great convocation, from the going in of Hamath even to the torrent of Egypt. 9And they will do in the eighth day a restraint: for they did the consecration of the altar, seven days; and the festival, seven days. 10And in the twenty and third to the seventh month he sent the people to their tents rejoicing and good of heart for the good that Jehovah did to David and to Solomon and to Israel his people.

The LORD’s Response to Solomon
(1 Kings 9:1–9)

11And Solomon will finish the house of Jehovah, and the house of the king: and all coming upon the heart of Solomon to do in the house of Jehovah, and in his house, he prospered.

12And Jehovah will be seen to Solomon in the night, and he will say to him, I heard thy prayer, and I chose in this place for me for a house of sacrifice. 13If I shall shut up the heavens and there shall not be rain, and if I shall command upon the locust to consume the land, and if I shall send death upon my people; 14And if my people which my name was called upon them shall be humbled and pray and seek my face, and turn back from their evil ways; and I will hear from the heavens and forgive to their sin, and I will heal their land. 15Now shall mine eyes be opened, and mine ears attending to the prayer of this place. 16And now I chose and I consecrated this house for my name to be there even to forever: and mine eyes and my heart were there all the days. 17And thou, if thou wilt go before me as David thy father went, and to do according to all that I commanded thee, and my law and my judgment thou shalt watch: 18And I set up the throne of thy kingdom according as I cut out to David thy father, saying, There shall not be cut off to thee a man ruling over Israel.

19And if ye shall turn away and forsake my laws and my covenant which I gave before you, and ye went and served other gods and worshiped to them; 20And I plucked them up from my land which I gave to them; and this house which I consecrated to my name I will cast from my face, and I will give it for a parable and for a derision among all peoples. 21And this house which was high shall astonish to every one passing by it; and saying, For what did Jehovah thus to this land and to this house? 22And they said, Because they forsook Jehovah the God of their fathers who brought them forth from the land of Egypt; and they will lay hold upon other gods and worship to them, and serve them: for this he brought upon them all this evil.
