- 1 Now R123 when Solomon had finished praying, fire R124 came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the LORD filled the house. 2 The R125 priests could not enter into the house of the LORD because the glory of the LORD filled the LORD'S house. 3 All the sons of Israel, seeing the fire come down and the glory of the LORD upon the house, bowed down on the pavement with their faces to the ground, and they worshiped and gave praise to the LORD, saying, "Truly R126 He is good, truly His lovingkindness is everlasting." 4 Then R127 the king and all the people offered sacrifice before the LORD. 5 King Solomon offered a sacrifice of 22,000 oxen and 120,000 sheep. Thus the king and all the people dedicated the house of God. 6 The priests stood at their posts, and the R128 Levites also, with the instruments of music to the LORD, which King David had made for giving praise to the LORD--"for His lovingkindness is everlasting"--whenever he F72 gave praise by their means, F73 while the R129 priests on the other side blew trumpets; and all Israel was standing. 7 Then R130 Solomon consecrated the middle of the court that was before the house of the LORD, for there he offered the burnt offerings and the fat of the peace offerings because the bronze altar which Solomon had made was not able to contain the burnt offering, the grain offering and the fat. 8 So Solomon R131 observed the feast at that time for seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great assembly who came from the entrance of Hamath to the brook R132 of Egypt. 9 On the eighth day they held a R133 solemn assembly, for the dedication of the altar they observed seven days and the feast seven days. 10 Then on the twenty-third day of the seventh month he sent the people to their tents, rejoicing and happy of heart because of the goodness that the LORD had shown to David and to Solomon and to His people Israel. 11 Thus R134 Solomon finished the house of the LORD and the king's palace, and successfully completed all that he F74 had planned on doing in the house of the LORD and in his palace.
