Second Chronicles 8

8:1 And it came to pass at the end of twenty years, wherein
 Solomon had built the house of the LORD, and his own house,
8:2 That the cities which Huram had restored to Solomon, Solomon
 built them, and caused the children of Israel to dwell there.
8:3 And Solomon went to Hamath-zobah, and prevailed against it.
8:4 And he built Tadmor in the wilderness, and all the store
 cities, which he built in Hamath.
8:5 Also he built Beth-horon the upper, and Beth-horon the
 nether, fortified cities, with walls, gates, and bars;
8:6 And Baalath, and all the store cities that Solomon had, and
 all the chariot cities, and the cities of the horsemen, and all
 that Solomon desired to build in Jerusalem, and in Lebanon, and
 throughout all the land of his dominion.
8:7 [As for] all the people [that were] left of the Hittites,
 and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the
 Jebusites, who [were] not of Israel,
8:8 [But] of their children, who were left after them in the
 land, whom the children of Israel consumed not, them did
 Solomon make to pay tribute until this day.
8:9 But of the children of Israel did Solomon make no servants
 for his work; but they [were] men of war, and chief of his
 captains, and captains of his chariots and horsemen.
8:10 And these [were] the chief of king Solomon's officers,
 [even] two hundred and fifty, that bore rule over the people.
8:11 And Solomon brought up the daughter of Pharaoh from the
 city of David to the house that he had built for her: for he
 said, My wife shall not dwell in the house of David king of
 Israel, because [the places are] holy, to which the ark of the
 LORD hath come.
8:12 Then Solomon offered burnt-offerings to the LORD on the
 altar of the LORD, which he had built before the porch,
8:13 Even after a certain rate every day, offering according to
 the commandment of Moses, on the sabbaths, and on the new
 moons, and on the solemn feasts, three times in the year,
 [even] in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of
 weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles.
8:14 And he appointed, according to the order of David his
 father, the courses of the priests to their service, and the
 Levites to their charges, to praise and minister before the
 priests, as the duty of every day required: the porters also by
 their courses at every gate: for so had David the man of God
8:15 And they departed not from the commandment of the king to
 the priests and Levites concerning any matter, or concerning
 the treasures.
8:16 Now all the work of Solomon was prepared to the day of the
 foundation of the house of the LORD, and until it was finished.
 [So] the house of the LORD was perfected.
8:17 Then went Solomon to Ezion-geber, and to Eloth, at the sea
 side in the land of Edom.
8:18 And Huram sent to him by the hands of his servants, ships,
 and servants that had knowledge of the sea; and they went with
 the servants of Solomon to Ophir, and took thence four hundred
 and fifty talents of gold, and brought [them] to king Solomon.
