Second Chronicles 7

7:1 Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came
 down from heaven, and consumed the burnt-offering and the
 sacrifices; and the glory of the LORD filled the house.
7:2 And the priests could not enter into the house of the LORD,
 because the glory of the LORD had filled the LORD'S house.
7:3 And when all the children of Israel saw how the fire came
 down, and the glory of the LORD upon the house, they bowed
 themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement,
 and worshiped, and praised the LORD, [saying], For [he is]
 good; for his mercy [endureth] for ever.
7:4 Then the king and all the people offered sacrifices before
 the LORD.
7:5 And king Solomon offered a sacrifice of twenty and two
 thousand oxen, and a hundred and twenty thousand sheep: so the
 king and all the people dedicated the house of God.
7:6 And the priests waited on their offices: the Levites also
 with instruments of music of the LORD, which David the king had
 made to praise the LORD, because his mercy [endureth] for ever,
 when David praised by their ministry; and the priests sounded
 trumpets before them, and all Israel stood.
7:7 Moreover Solomon hallowed the middle of the court that [was]
 before the house of the LORD: for there he offered
 burnt-offerings, and the fat of the peace-offerings, because
 the brazen altar which Solomon had made was not able to receive
 the burnt-offerings, and the meat-offerings, and the fat.
7:8 Also at the same time Solomon kept the feast seven days, and
 all Israel with him, a very great congregation, from the
 entrance of Hamath to the river of Egypt.
7:9 And on the eighth day they made a solemn assembly: for they
 kept the dedication of the altar seven days, and the feast
 seven days.
7:10 And on the three and twentieth day of the seventh month he
 sent the people away to their tents, glad and merry in heart
 for the goodness that the LORD had shown to David, and to
 Solomon, and to Israel his people.
7:11 Thus Solomon finished the house of the LORD, and the king's
 house: and all that came into Solomon's heart to make in the
 house of the LORD, and in his own house, he prosperously
7:12 And the LORD appeared to Solomon by night, and said to him,
 I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to myself
 for a house of sacrifice.
7:13 If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command
 the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among
 my people;
7:14 If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble
 themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their
 wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive
 their sin, and will heal their land.
7:15 Now my eyes shall be open, and my ears attentive to the
 prayer [that is made] in this place.
7:16 For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my
 name may be there for ever: and my eyes and my heart shall be
 there perpetually.
7:17 And as for thee, if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy
 father walked, and do according to all that I have commanded
 thee, and shalt observe my statutes and my judgments;
7:18 Then will I establish the throne of thy kingdom, according
 as I have covenanted with David thy father, saying, There shall
 not fail thee a man [to be] ruler in Israel.
7:19 But if ye turn away, and forsake my statutes and my
 commandments, which I have set before you, and shall go and
 serve other gods, and worship them;
7:20 Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which
 I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for
 my name, will I cast out of my sight, and will make it [to be]
 a proverb and a by-word among all nations.
7:21 And this house, which is high, shall be an astonishment to
 every one that passeth by it; so that he shall say, Why hath
 the LORD done thus to this land, and to this house?
7:22 And it shall be answered, Because they forsook the LORD God
 of their fathers, who brought them out of the land of Egypt,
 and laid hold on other gods, and worshiped them, and served
 them: therefore hath he brought all this evil upon them.
