22 And euery daye came there some to Dauid, to helpe him, till there was
a greate hoost as an hoost of God.
23 And this is the nombre of the heades harnessed vnto the warre, which
came to Dauid vnto Hebron, for to turne the kyngdome of Saul vnto him, acordynge
to the worde of the LORDE.
24 The childre of Iuda, which handled speares and swerdes, were sixe

38 All these men of warre, ready harnessed to the battayll, came with a
whole hert vnto
, to make Dauid kynge ouer all
Israel And all
besyde were of one hert, that Dauid shulde be made kynge.
39 And there were they with Dauid thre dayes, eatynge and drynkynge: for
their brethren had prepared for them.
40 And soch neghbours as were aboute them vntyll Isachar, Zabulon and
Nephtali, brought bred vpon Asses, Camels, Mules and oxen to eate: meel, fyges,
rasens, wyne, oyle, oxen, shepe, very many: for there was ioye in
1 And Dauid helde a councell with the captaynes ouer thousandes and ouer
hundreds, and with all the prynces,
2 and sayde vnto all the congregacion of Israel: Yf it lyke you, and yf
it be of the LORDE oure God, let vs sende forth on euery syde to oure other
brethren in all the countrees of Israel, and to the prestes and Leuites in the
cities where they haue suburbes, yt they maye be gathered together vnto vs,
3 and let vs fetch the Arke of oure God agayne vnto vs: for by Sauls tyme
we axed after it.
4 The sayde the whole cogregacion, that the same shulde be done, for it
pleased all the people well.
5 So Dauid gathered all
together from Sihor of Egipte, tyll a man come vnto Hemath, to fetch the Arke
of God from Kiriath Iearim.
6 And Dauid wente vp wt all Israel to Kiriath Iearim, which lieth in Iuda,
to brynge from thence the Arke of God the LORDE, that sytteth vpo the Cherubins,
where the name is named:
7 and they caused the Arke of God to be caried vpo a new cart from the
house of Abinadab. Vsa and his brethren droue the cart.
8 As for Dauid and all
, they played with all their strength before God, with songes, with harpes, with
psalteries, with tabrettes, with Cymbales and trompes.
9 But whan they came to the barne floore of Chidon, Vsa stretched out his
hande to holde the Arke: for the oxen wente out asyde.
10 Then waxed the wrath of the LORDE fearce ouer Vsa, & smote him,
because he stretched out his hade to the Arke, so yt he dyed there before God.
11 The was Dauid sory, because ye LORDE had made soch a rente vpo Vsa,
and called the place Perez Vsa, vnto this daye.
12 And Dauid stode in feare of God the same daye, & sayde: How shal I
brynge ye Arke of God vnto me?
13 Therfore wolde he not let ye Arke of God be broughte vnto him in to ye
cite of Dauid, but caried it in to ye house of Obed Edom the Gathite.
14 So the Arke of God abode with Obed Edom in his house thre monethes.
And ye LORDE blessed Obed Edoms house and all that he had.
1 And Hiram ye kynge of
sent messaungers vnto Dauid and Cedre tymber, and masons and carpenters, to
buylde him an house.
2 And Dauid perceaued, that the LORDE had confirmed him kynge ouer
: for his kyngdome increased for his people of
3 And Dauid toke yet mo wyues at Ierusalem, & begat yet mo sonnes
4 And the names of them yt were borne vnto him at Ierusalem, are these:
Sammua, Sobab, Nathan, Salomon,
5 Iebehar, Elisua, Elipalet,
6 Noga, Nepheg, Iaphia,
7 Elisamma, Baal Iada, Eliphalet.
8 And whan the Philistynes herde that Dauid was anoynted kynge ouer all
, they wente vp all to seke Dauid. Whan Dauid herde that, he wente forth agaynst
9 And the Philistynes came, and scatered the selues beneth in ye
10 And Dauid axed councell at God, & sayde: Shal I go vp agaynst the
Philistynes? and wilt thou delyuer them in to my hande? The LORDE sayde vnto
him: Go vp, and I wil delyuer them in to thy hande.
11 And whan they were gone vp to Baal Prasim, Dauid smote them there. And
Dauid sayde: God hath deuyded myne enemies thorow my hande, euen as the water
parteth asunder: therfore called they the place Baal Prasim.
12 And there lefte they their goddes. Then commaunded Dauid to burne them
13 But the Philistynes gat them thither agayne, and scatered them selues
beneth in ye valley.
14 And Dauid axed councell at God agayne. And God sayde vnto him: Thou
shalt not go vp behynde them, but turne the from them, that thou mayest come
vpon the ouer agaynst the Peertrees.
15 So whan thou hearest aboue vpon the Peertrees the noyse of the goynge,
go thou forth then to the batayll: for God is gone forth then before the to
smyte the hoost of the Philistynes.
16 And Dauid dyd as God commaunded him. And they smote the hoost of the
forth vnto Gaser.
17 And Dauids name was noysed out in all londes. And the LORDE caused ye
feare of him to come vpo all the Heythen.
1 And he buylded him houses in the cite of Dauid, & made ready a
place for ye Arke of God, & pitched a Tabernacle for it.
2 At that tyme sayde Dauid: The Arke of God is not to be borne, but onely
of ye Leuites: for them hath the LORDE chosen to beare the Arke of the LORDE,
and to mynister vnto him for euer.
3 Therfore gathered Dauid all
together vnto Ierusalem, to brynge vp the Arke of the LORDE vnto the place
which he had prepared for it.
4 And Dauid broughte the children of Aaron & the Leuites together.
5 Of the children of Kahath: Vriel the chefe wt his brethren, an C. and
6 Of the children of Merari: Asaia the chefe wt his brethre, two C. and
7 Of the childre of Gerson: Ioel the chefe wt his brethren, an C. and
8 Of ye childre of Elizaphan: Semaia the chefe wt his brethren, two
9 Of the childre of
: Eliel the chefe, with his brethre, foure score.
10 Of the children of Vsiel: Amminadab the chefe, with his brethren, an
hudreth and twolue.
11 And Dauid called Sadoc and Abiathar the prestes, and the Leuites,
namely Vriel, Asaia, Ioeli, Semaia, Eliel, Aminadab,
12 and sayde vnto them: Ye are the heades of ye fathers amonge the
Leuites: sanctifye yor selues therfore & youre brethre, yt ye maye brynge vp
the Arke of the LORDE God of Israel, to the place yt I haue prepared for it.
13 For a fore whan ye were not there, the LORDE oure God made a rent
amonge vs, because we soughte him not, as we shulde haue done.
14 So ye prestes & the Leuites halowed the selues, yt they mighte
brynge vp the Arke of the LORDE God of Israel.
15 And the children of Leui bare the Arke of God the LORDE vpon their
shulders with the staues theron, as Moses comaunded acordinge to ye worde of the
16 And Dauid spake vnto ye rulers of ye Leuites, that they shulde ordeyne
some of their brethren to be syngers with psalteries, harpes and loude
instrumentes, and Cimbales, to synge loude with ioye.
17 Then the Leuites appoynted Heman ye sonne of Ioel: and of his brethren
Assaph the sonne of Barachias: and of the children of Merari their brethren,
Ethan the sonne of Cusaia:
18 and with them their brethren of the seconde course, namely Zacharias,
Iaesiel, Semiramoth, Iehiel, Vnni, Eliab, Benaia, Maeseia, Mathithia, Elipheleia,
Mikneia, Obed Edom, Ieiel, the dore kepers.
19 For Heman, Assaph and Ethan were syngers, with brasen belles makynge a
20 but Zacharias, Iaesiel, Semiramoth, Iehiel, Vnni, Eliab, Maeseia &
Benaia with Phalteries to Alamoth:
21 Mathithia, Elipheleia, Mikneia, Obed Edom, Ieiel & Asasia with
harpes to synge aboue them on hye.
22 Chenania the ruler of the Leuites was the master of Musick to teach
them for to synge, for he was a man of vnderstondinge.
23 And Barachias and Elcana were the dorekepers of the Arke.
24 But Sachania, Iosaphat, Nathaneel, Amasai, Zacharias, Benaia, Elieser
the prestes, blewe the trompettes before ye Arke of God. And Obed Edom and Iehia
were dorekepers of the Arke.
25 So Dauid and the Elders of Israel, and the captaynes ouer thousandes
wente vp to fetch the Arke of the couenaunt of the LORDE out of the house of
Obed Edom wt ioye.
26 And whan God had helped the Leuites yt bare the Arke of the LORDES
couenaunt, there were offred seuen bullockes & seuen rames,
27 And Dauid had a lynne garment vpo him, and so had all the Leuites yt
bare the Arke, and ye syngers, and Chenania the master of Musick wt the syngers.
Dauid had an ouerbody cote of lynnen vpon him also.
28 Thus all
brought vp the Arke of the couenaunt of the LORDE with myrth, with trompettes,
tabrettes, & loude Cymbales, with psalteries and harpes.
29 Now whan the Arke of the couenaunt of the LORDE came in to the cite of
Dauid, Michol ye doughter of Saul loked out at a wyndowe: & wha she sawe
kynge Dauid daunsynge & playenge, she despysed him in hir hert.
1 And wha they brought in the Arke of God, they set it in ye Tabernacle,
that Dauid had pitched for it, and offred burntofferynges & thankofferynges
2 And wha Dauid had ended the burntofferynges and thankofferynges, he
blessed the people in the name of the LORDE,
3 & distributed vnto euery man in
(both vnto man and woman) a cake of bred, and a pece of flesh and a meece of
4 And he appoynted before the Arke of ye LORDE certayne Leuites to
mynister, that they shulde geue prayse, thankes and loauinges vnto the LORDE God
5 namely Assaph the first, Zacharias the seconde, Ieiel, Semiramoth,
Iehiel, Mathithia, Eliab, Benaia, Obed Edom and Iehiel, with psalteries and
harpes. But Assaph with loude Cymbales.
6 Benaia and Iehasiel the prestes with tabrettes, allwaye before the Arke
of ye couenaunt of God.
7 At the same tyme ordeyned Dauid first of all to geue thakes vnto the
LORDE by Assaph and his brethren.
8 O geue thankes vnto the LORDE, call vpon his name, tell the people what
thinges he hath done.
9 O let youre songes be of him: prayse him, and let youre talkynge be of
all his wonderous workes.
10 Geue his holy name a good reporte: let ye hert of them reioyce, that
seke the LORDE.
11 O seke the LORDE and his strength, seke his face euermore.
12 Remebre his maruelous workes that he hath done, his wonders, and the
iudgmetes of his mouth.
13 Ye sede of
his seruaunt, ye children of Iacob his chosen.
14 He is the LORDE oure God, his iudgmetes are in all londes.
15 Be myndefull euer of his couenaut what he hath commaunded in to a
16 Which he made with Abraham, & his ooth vnto Isaac.
17 And he comfirmed the same vnto Iacob for a perpetuall lawe, and to
for an euerlastinge couenaunt.
18 And sayde: Vnto the wyl I geue ye londe of
, ye metelyne of yor inheritaunce.
19 Wha they were yet but small & fewe in nobre, and straungers in the
20 And they wente from one nacion to another, & from one realme to
21 He suffred no man to hurte them, and reproued euen kynges for their
22 Touch not myne anoynted, & do my prophetes no harme.
23 O synge vnto ye LORDE, let all ye earth be tellynge of his saluacion
from daye to daye.
24 Declare his holynes amoge the Heythe, & his wonderous workes
amonge ye people.
25 For the LORDE is greate, and can not worthely be praysed, and more to
he had in awe then all goddes.
26 As for all the goddes of the Heythe, they are but Idols: but it is the
LORDE that made the heauens.
27 Thankesgeuynge and worshipe are before him, strength and ioye is in
28 Ascrybe vnto the LORDE ye kynreds of nacions: ascrybe vnto the LORDE
worshipe and strength.
29 Ascrybe vnto the LORDE the honoure of his name: brynge presentes, and
come before him, and worshipe ye LORDE in ye bewtye of holynes.
30 Let the whole earth stode in awe of him: he hath made the compase of
the worlde so fast, that it can not be moued.
31 Let the heauens reioyse, and let the earth be glad: and let it be
tolde amonge the Heythen, that the LORDE reigneth.
32 Let the See make a noyse, and the fulnesse therof: let the felde be
ioyfull, and all that therin is.
33 Let all the trees in the wod leape for ioye before the LORDE, for he
commeth to iudge the earth.
34 O geue thankes vnto the LORDE, for he is gracious: and his mercy
endureth for euer.
35 And saye: Helpe vs O God oure Sauioure, and gather vs together, and
delyuer vs from the Heythen, that we maye geue thankes vnto yi holy name, and
synge prayses vnto the in thy Psalmes.
36 Praysed be the LORDE God of Israel from euerlastinge to euerlastinge:
and let all people saye, Amen, And: Prayse be vnto the LORDE.
37 So he lefte Assaph and his brethren there before the Arke of the
couenaunt of the LORDE, to mynister allwaye before the Arke, euery daye his daye
38 But Obed
and their brethren, eight and thre score, and Obed Edom the sonne of Iedithun,
and Hossa, to be dore kepers.
39 And Sadoc ye prest, & his brethre the prestes, lefte he before the
habitacion of the LORDE vpon the hye place at Gibeo,
40 to offre burntsacrifices daylie vnto the LORDE vpon the altare of
burntofferynges in the mornynge & in the euenynge, as it is wrytten in the
lawe of the LORDE, which he comaunded vnto Israel.
41 And with them Heman & Iedithun, and ye other chosen, which were
named by name to geue thankes vnto the LORDE, because his mercy endureth for
42 And with them Heman & Iedithun to stryke vpon the tabrettes and
Cymbales, and the musicall instrumentes of God. As for the childre of Iedithun,
he made them dorekepers.
43 So all the people departed, euery one to his house: and Dauid returned
also to blesse his house.
1 It fortuned wha Dauid dwelt in his house, he sayde vnto ye prophet
Nathan: Beholde, I dwell in a house of Ceder, and the Arke of the couenaunt of
the LORDE is amonge the curtaynes.
2 Nathan saide vnto Dauid: What so euer is in thine hert, that do: for
God is with ye.
3 But the same night came ye worde of God vnto Nathan, and sayde:
4 Go and speake to Dauid my seruaunt: Thus sayeth the LORDE: Thou shalt
not buylde me an house to be an habitacio:
5 for I haue dwelt in no house sence the daye that I broughte forth the
children of Israel, vnto this daye: But where the Tabernacle and habitacion hath
bene, there haue I bene where so euer
6 I haue walked in all Israel. Spake I euer to eny of the Iudges in
(whom I commaunded to kepe my people) and sayde: Wherfore do ye not buylde me
an house of Cedre tymber?
7 So shalt thou speake now vnto my seruaunt Dauid: Thus sayeth the LORDE
Zebaoth: I toke the from the pasture behynde the shepe, that thou shuldest be
the prynce ouer my people,
8 and haue bene with the whither so euer thou wetest, and haue roted out
all thine enemies before the, and haue made the a name, acordinge to the name of
the greate men that are vpo earth.
9 And for my people of
, I wyll appoynte them a place, and wyl plante them, that they maye dwell there,
and nomore to be remoued. And the childre of wickednes shal oppresse them nomore,
10 like as afore tyme, whan I comaunded the Iudges ouer my people of
. And I wyl subdue all thine enemies, and do declare vnto the, that the LORDE
wyl buylde the an house.
11 But whan thy dayes are fulfilled, that thou departest hence with yi
fathers, I wyl after the rayse vp yi sede, which shall be eue one of thy sonnes:
his kyngdome wyl I stablisshe,
12 he shal buylde me an house, & I wyl make his seate sure for euer.
13 I wyl be his father, and he shal be my sonne. And I wyl not withdrawe
my mercy from him, as I haue withdrawen it fro him that was before the:
14 But I wyll set him in my house and in my kyngdome for euer, so that
his seate shalbe sure for euermore.
15 And wha Nathan had spoken vnto Dauid acordinge to all these wordes
& all this vision,
16 kynge Dauid came and sat him downe before the LORDE, and sayde: O
LORDE God, who am I? and what is my house, yt thou hast broughte me thus farre?
17 And this (O God) hast thou thoughte yet to litle, but hast spoken of
thy seruauntes house yet longe for to come. And thou LORDE God hast loked downe
vpon me from aboue, euen as one man loketh vpon another.
18 What more shal Dauid saye vnto the, yt thou bryngest yi seruaunt to
soch honoure? Thou knowest thy seruaunt
19 O LORDE, for thy seruauntes sake and acordinge to thy hert hast thou
done all these greate thinges, that thou mightest shewe all greate thinges vnto
20 LORDE, there is none lykel the, and there is no God but thou, of whom
we haue herde with oure eares.
21 And where is there a people vpon earth as thy people of
, where God wente to delyuer him a people, and to make him selfe a name thorow
greate & terrible thinges, to cast out the Heythen before thy people, whom
thou hast delyuered out of Egipte?
22 and ye people of
hast thou made yi people for euer, and thou LORDE art become their God.
23 Now LORDE, let the worde be verified for euer, that thou hast spoken
ouer thy seruaunt and ouer his house, & do as thou hast spoken:
24 and let thy name endure and be magnified for euer, that it maye sayde:
The LORDE Zebaoth, the God of Israel is the God in Israel, and that the house of
thy seruaunt Dauid maye be stablysshed before the:
25 for thou LORDE hast opened the eare of yi seruaunt, that thou wilt
buylde him an house. Therfore hath thy seruaunt founde (confydence) to make his
prayer before the.
26 Now LORDE, thou art God, and hast promysed soch good vnto thy seruaunt.
27 Begynne now to blesse the house of thy seruaunt, that it maye be
euermore before the: for loke what thou blessest (O LORDE) the same is blessed
1 After this smote Dauid the Philistynes, and subdued them, and toke
& the vyllages therof out of the hande of the Philistynes.
2 He smote the Moabites likewyse, so that the Moabites were subdued vnto
Dauid, and gaue him trybute.
3 He smote Hadad Eser also ye kynge of Zoba in Hemath, whan he wente to
set vp his power by the water
4 And Dauid toke from him a thousande charettes, seuen thousande horsmen,
and twetye thousande fote men. And Dauid lamed all the charettes, and kepte an

5 And the

two & twentie thousande of the same Syrians,
6 and layed men of warre at Damascon in

LORDE helped Dauid, whither so euer he wente.
7 And Dauid toke the shyldes of golde, yt Hadad Esers seruautes had,
& broughte the to Ierusale.
8 And out of Tibehath & Chun the cities of Hadad Eser, toke Dauid
very moch brasse, wherof Salomon made the brasen lauer, and pilers, and brasen
9 And wha Thogu the kynge of Hemath herde, yt Dauid had smytten all ye
power of Hadad Eser,
10 he sent his sonne Hadora vnto kynge Dauid, to salute him & to
blesse him, because he had foughte wt Hadad Eser, & smytte hi (for Thogu had
warre wt Hadad Eser) and all the same vessels of golde, syluer and of brasse,
11 dyd kynge Dauid consecrate vnto the LORDE, with the syluer and golde
that he had taken from the Heythe, namely, from the Edomites, Moabites,
Ammonites, Philistynes, and Amalechites.
12 And Abisai the sonne of

13 and layed me of warre in Edomea, so that all the Edomites were subdued
vnto Dauid: for ye LORDE helped Dauid, whither so euer he wente.
14 Thus Dauid reigned ouer all

15 Ioab the sonne of

16 Sadoc the sonne of Achitob, and Ahimelech ye sonne of Abiathar, were
prestes. Sauesa was Scrybe.
17 Benaia the sonne of Ioiada was ouer the Chrethians & Plethians.
And Dauids sonnes were chefe at ye kynges hande.
1 And after this dyed Nahas ye kynge of the childre of Ammon, and his
sonne was kynge in his steade.
2 Then sayde Dauid: I wil do mercy vpon Hanun the sonne of Nahas, for his
father dyd mercy vpon me: and so he sent messaungers to comforte him ouer his
father. And wha Dauids seruauntes came in to the londe of the children of Ammon
vnto Hanun to comforte him,
3 the prynces of the children of Ammon sayde vnto Hanun: Thinkest thou
that Dauid honoureth thy father in thy sighte, that he hath sent coforters vnto
the? Yee his seruauntes are come vnto the, to search and to ouerthrowe, and to
spye out the londe.
4 Then toke Hanun the seruauntes of Dauid, and shoue them, & cut the
halfe of their garmentes of, eue by the loynes, & so let the go.
5 And they wente their waye, & sent men to tell Dauid. Neuertheles he
sent to mete them (for ye men were put to greate shame) and the kynge sayde:
Abyde at Iericho, tyll youre beerdes be growne, and then come agayne.
6 Whan the childre of Ammon sawe, that they stynked in ye sighte of Dauid,
both Hanun and the children of Ammon sent a thousande taletes of syluer, to hyre
charettes and horsmen out of Mesopotamia, out of Maecha and out of Zoba:
7 and hyred two and thirtie thousande charettes, & ye kynge of Maecha

children of Ammon gathered them selues together out of their cities, and came to

men of armes.
9 And the childre of Ammon were gone forth, and prepared them selues to

them asyde in the felde.
10 Now wha Ioab sawe that the battayll was agaynst him both before and
behynde, he chose of all the best yonge men in

11 As for ye residue of the people, he put them vnder the hande of Abisai
his brother, that they shulde prepare them selues agaynst the children of Ammon,
12 and he sayde: Yf ye Syrias be to mightie for me, helpe thou me: but yf
the childre of Ammon be to stroge for ye, I shall helpe the:
13 take a good corage vnto the, and let vs quyte oure selues manly for

15 And whan the children of Ammon sawe yt the Syrians fled, they fled
also before Abisai his brother, and wente in to the cite. And Ioab came to

17 Wha this was tolde Dauid, he gathered all

Syrians, & they foughte with him:
18 but ye

thousande fote men. And Sophach the chefe captayne slewe he also.
19 And whan Hadad Esers seruauntes sawe that they were smytte before
, they made peace wt Dauid & his seruauntes. And the Syrians wolde helpe the
childre of Ammon nomore.
1 And whan ye yeare came aboute, what tyme as ye kynges vse to go forth,
Ioab broughte the power of the hoost, & destroyed the londe of the children
of Ammon, and came and layed sege vnto Rabba. But Dauid abode at Ierusalem. And
Ioab smote Rabba, and brake it downe.
2 And Dauid toke their kynges crowne from his heade, and founde the

9 And the LORDE spake vnto Gad Dauids Seer, & sayde:
10 Go speake to Dauid, & saye: Thus saieth the LORDE: Thre thinges
laye I before the, chose ye one of them, yt I maye do it vnto the.
11 And wha Gad came to Dauid, he spake vnto him: Thus sayeth the LORDE:
12 ether thre yeare derth, or thre monethes to flye before thine
aduersaries, & before the swerde of thine enemies, yt it maye ouertake the:
or thre dayes ye swerde of the LORDE, & pestilece in the londe, yt the
angell of the LORDE maye destroye in all ye coastes of Israel. Loke now what
answere I shal geue vnto him yt sent me.
13 Dauid sayde vnto Gad: I am in greate trouble: yet wyl I rather fall in
to ye hande of the LORDE, for his mercy is exceadynge greate, & I wil not
fall in to the handes of men.
14 Then dyd the LORDE cause pestilence to come into
, so that there fell of
thre score & ten thousande me.
15 And God sent the angell to Ierusale for to destroye it. And euen in
the destruccion the LORDE considered, and he repeted of the euell, and sayde
vnto the angell ye destroyer: It is ynough, holde now thy hande. The angell of
the LORDE stode besyde ye barne of Arnan ye Iebusite.
16 And Dauid lifte vp his eyes, and sawe the angell of ye LORDE stondinge
betwene heaue and earth, and a naked swerde in his hande stretched out ouer

17 And Dauid sayde vnto God: Am not I he that caused the people to be
nombred? I am he that hath synned and done euell: as for these shepe, what haue
they done? LORDE my God, let thine hande be agaynst me and agaynst my fathers

18 And the angell sayde vnto Gad, that he shulde speake vnto Dauid, that
Dauid shulde shulde go vp, & set vp an altare in the barne of Arnan the
19 So Dauid wente vp acordinge to ye worde of Gad, which he spake in the
name of the LORDE.
20 But wha Arnan turned him, and sawe the angell (and his foure sonnes
with him) they hyd the selues: for Arnan throsshed wheate.
21 Now whan Dauid came to Arnan, Arnan loked, and was aware of Dauid, and
wete forth out of the barne, and worshipped Dauid with his face to the grounde.
22 And Dauid sayde vnto Arnan: Geue me rowme in the barne, to buylde an
altare vnto the LORDE therin: for ye full money shalt thou geue it me, that the
plage maye ceasse from the people.
23 But Arnan sayde vnto Dauid: Take it vnto the, and let my lorde the
kynge do as pleaseth him. Beholde, that oxe geue I for a burntofferynge, and
those vessels to the oxe, and wheate for the meatofferynge, I geue it all.
24 Neuertheles the kynge sayde vnto Arnan: Not so, but for ye full money
wyl I bye it: for that which is thine wyl not I take for the LORDE, and offre a
burntofferynge for naughte.
25 So Dauid gaue Arnan for ye rowme, sixe hundreth Sycles of golde in
26 And there buylded Dauid an altare vnto ye LORDE, & offred
burntofferynges & slaynofferynges. And whan he called vpo the LORDE, he
herde him thorow the fyre from heaue vpon ye altare of the burntofferynge.
27 And ye LORDE sayde vnto the angell, that he shulde put his swerde in
to his sheeth.
28 At the same tyme wha Dauid sawe, that the LORDE had herde him vpon the
corne floore of Arnan ye Iebusite, he dyd sacrifice there.
29 For ye habitacion of ye LORDE which Moses had made in the wyldernes,
and the altare of burntofferynges, was at that tyme in the hye place at
30 But Dauid coulde not go thither to seke God before it, for he feared
the swerde of the LORDES angell.
1 And Dauid sayde: Here shal be ye house of God ye LORDE, and this the
altare of burntofferynges for
2 And Dauid comaunded to gather together the straungers that were in ye

3 And Dauid prepared moch yron for nales in the dores of the portes, and
for soch thinges as were to be naled together, and so moch brasse, that is was
not to be weyed:
4 and Cedre trees innumerable: for they of Zidon & Tyre brought Dauid
moch Cedre tymbre:
5 for Dauid thoughte, Salomo my sonne is but a childe and tender: But the
house that shal be buylded vnto the LORDE, shal be greate, that his name &
prayse maye be exalted in all londes, therfore wyl I prouyde for him. So Dauid
made greate prouysion before his death.
6 And he called Salomon his sonne, & commaunded him to buylde the
house of LORDE God of Israel,
7 and sayde vnto him: My sonne, I was minded to buylde an house vnto the
name of the LORDE my God,
8 but the worde of ye LORDE came vnto me, and sayde: Thou hast shed moch
bloude, and strycken many battayls, therfore shalt thou not buylde an house vnto
my name, for as moch as thou hast shed so moch bloude vpon the earth before me.
9 Beholde, the sonne which shal be borne vnto the, shal be a quyete man:
and I wyl cause him to be in rest from al his enemies on euery syde, for his
name shalbe Salomon: for I wyll geue peace and rest vpon
as longe as he lyueth.
10 He shal buylde an house vnto my name. He shal be my sonne, and I wyll
be his father. And I wyl stablyshe ye seate of his kyngdome vpo
11 Now my sonne, the LORDE shal be wyth the, and thou shalt prospere,
that thou mayest buylde an house vnto the LORDE thy God, acordynge as he hath
spoken of the.
12 The LORDE also shal geue the wysdome & vnderstondynge, and shal

13 But then shal thou prospere, yf thou take hede to do after the
ordynaunces and lawes which the LORDE commaunded Moses vnto
. Be stronge, and take a good corage vnto the, feare not, and be not faynt
14 Beholde, I haue in my pouerte prouyded for the house of the LORDE, an
hundreth thousande talentes of golde, and a thousande tymes a thousande talentes
of syluer, and brasse and yron without nombre: for there is so moch of it. And
tymbre and stone haue I prepared, thou mayest get more therof.
15 Thou hast many workmen also, mesons and carpenters in stone and tymber,
and all maner of men that haue vnderstondinge in all worke
16 off golde, syluer, brasse, and yron without nombre. Yet get the vp,
and be doynge, and the LORDE shal be with the.
17 And Dauid commaunded all the rulers of
, to helpe Salomon his sonne, and sayde:
18 Is not the LORDE youre God with you, and hath geuen you rest on euery
syde? for he hath delyuered the inhabiters of the londe in to youre handes, and
the londe is subdued before the LORDE and before his people.
19 Geue ouer youre hert now therfore and youre soule, to seke the LORDE
youre God, and get you vp, and buylde a Sanctuary vnto the LORDE God, that the
Arke of the couenaunt of the LORDE and the holy vessels of God, maye be brought
in to the house, which shalbe buylded vnto the name of the LORDE.
1 So Dauid made Salomon his sonne kynge ouer

and prepared my selfe for to buylde,
3 But God sayde vnto me: Thou shalt not buylde an house vnto my name, for
thou art a man of warre, and hast shed bloude.
4 Now hath the LORDE God of Israel chosen me out of all my fathers house,
yt I shulde be kynge ouer Israel: for Iuda hath he chosen to be the Prynce, and

good londe and that ye and youre children maie haue ye inheritaunce therof for

thou shalt fynde him: but yf thou forsake him, he shall refuse the for euer.
10 Take hede now, for the LORDE hath chosen the, to buylde an house to be
the Sactuary: be stronge, and make it.
11 And Dauid gaue Salomon his sonne a patrone of the Porche, and of his

20 And Dauid sayde vnto Salomo his sonne: Be thou manly and stronge, and

Salomon one of my sonnes, which yet is yonge and tender. But the worke is greate:
for it is not a mans palace, but the LORDE Gods.
2 Yet haue I after all my abilite prepared vnto the house of God, golde

& seuen M. taletes of pure syluer, which I geue vnto the holy house of God,
besyde all yt I haue prepared, to ouerlaye ye walles of the house,
5 yt the same which ought to be of golde, maye be of golde: & that it
which ought to be of syluer, maye be of syluer: and for all maner of worke by
the hande of the craftesmen. And who is now fre wyllinge, to fyll his hande this
daye vnto the LORDE?
6 Then were the prynces of the fathers, ye prynces of the trybes of
Israel, the captaynes ouer thousandes & ouer hundreds, the rulers ouer the

for all that is in heauen and earth, is thine: thine is ye kyngdome, and thou
art exalted aboue all prynces.
12 Thine are riches and honoure before ye, thou reignest ouer all, in thy
hande consisteth power and might, in thy hade is it to make euery man greate and
13 Now thake we the oure God, and prayse ye name of thy glory:
14 For who am I? What is my people? that we shulde be able with a fre
wyll to offre, as this is done? For of the commeth all, and of thy hande haue we
geuen it the:
15 For we are but pilgrems & straugers before the, as were all oure
fathers. Oure life vpon earth is as a shadowe, and here is no abydinge.
16 O LORDE oure God, all this abundaunce that we haue prepared to buylde
the an house vnto thy name, came of thy hande, and is thine alltogether.
17 I knowe my God, that thou tryest the hert, and that vnfaynednes is

with a good wyll, and now haue I had ioye to se thy people (which here are

19 And graunte my sonne Salomon a perfecte hert, that he maye kepe thy
comaundementes, thy testimonies, & thy statutes, that he maye do all, &

20 And Dauid sayde vnto the whole cogregacion: O prayse the LORDE yor
God. And all the cogregacion praysed ye LORDE God of their fathers, & bowed

21 and offred sacrifices vnto the LORDE. And on ye nexte morow offred
they burntofferynges, a M. bullockes, a M. rames, a M. labes wt their

ioye, and made Salomon the sonne of Dauid kynge ye seconde tyme, and anoynted
him to be ye prynce for the LORDE, & Sadoc to be the prest.
23 Thus sat Salomon vpon the seate of ye LORDE, kynge in his fathers
steade, & prospered. And all

submytted themselues vnto kynge Salomon.
25 And ye LORDE made Salomon excellent & greate in ye sighte of all

28 & dyed in a good age, full of dayes, riches and honoure. And
Salomon his sonne was kynge in his steade.

Nathan, and amoge the actes of Gad the Seer,
30 with all his kyngdome, power and tymes which passed vnder him, both
