大卫对所罗门的嘱咐

1大卫召以色列的众首领到耶路撒冷。于是,各支派的首领、各班将领、千夫长、百夫长、负责王和王子的财产及牲畜的官员、宫廷侍臣、显贵和勇士都来了, 大卫王站起来说:“我的弟兄,我的人民啊,请听我说。我本想建造一座殿宇安放耶和华的约柜,作我们上帝的脚凳,我已准备好建造的材料。 但上帝对我说,‘你不可为我的名建造殿宇,因为你是个战士,曾流过人的血。’ 以色列的上帝耶和华从我父亲家中拣选我做以色列的王,直到永远。因为祂拣选了犹大支派做首领;在犹大支派中,祂拣选了我父亲家;在我父亲的众子中,祂喜悦我,立我做以色列的王。 耶和华赐给我许多儿子,祂在我众子中拣选了所罗门,让他坐以色列的王位,治理耶和华的国。 耶和华对我说,‘你儿子所罗门必建造我的殿宇和庭院,因为我拣选他做我的儿子,我也必做他的父亲。 倘若他像今天一样继续坚守我的诫命和典章,我必使他的国度永远稳固。’ 现在,当着耶和华的会众——全体以色列人的面,趁着我们的上帝在垂听,你们要谨遵你们的上帝耶和华的一切诫命,以便你们可以拥有这片佳美之地,并且把它传给你们的子孙作永远的产业。

“我儿所罗门啊,你要认识你父亲的上帝耶和华,诚心乐意地事奉祂,因为祂洞察人心,知道人一切的心思意念。倘若你寻求祂,祂必让你寻见;倘若你背弃祂,祂必永远丢弃你。 10 现在你要谨慎,因为耶和华拣选你来建造殿宇作圣所。你要坚定不移地去做。”

11 大卫将殿的走廊、房舍、库房、楼房、内室和安放施恩座的圣所的图样都交给所罗门, 12 又将心里构想的耶和华殿的院子、四周的房屋、殿的库房和圣物库房的图样都交给他。 13 大卫还让他知道祭司和利未人的班次、耶和华殿里各样的工作及一切所需的器皿, 14 制造各种金器银器所需金银的分量—— 15 金灯台和金灯的分量,银灯台和银灯的分量——按每座灯台的用途酌定金银的分量, 16 放供饼的金桌子的分量,银桌子的分量, 17 纯金的叉子、碗、瓶的分量,每个金碗和银碗的分量, 18 纯金香坛的分量,以及在施恩座上展开翅膀遮盖耶和华约柜的基路伯天使的样式。 19 大卫说:“以上这一切都是耶和华亲手指示我的,让我明白工作的细节。”

20 大卫又对儿子所罗门说:“你要坚定勇敢地去做!不要惧怕,也不要惊慌,因为我的上帝耶和华必不撇下你,也不丢弃你,祂必与你同在,直到圣殿的一切工作完毕。 21 你看,在上帝殿里司职的各班祭司和利未人已准备就绪,又有各种能工巧匠乐意在各种工作上帮你,众首领和百姓都听你调遣。”

1 Chronicles 28

David’s Address about the Temple

1David assembled at Jerusalem all the leaders (officials) of Israel, the leaders of the tribes, and the commanders of the divisions that served the king, and the commanders of thousands, and the commanders of hundreds, and the overseers of all the property and livestock of the king and his sons, with the palace officers and the mighty men, and all the brave warriors. Then David the king rose to his feet and said, “Hear me, my brothers [in arms] and my people. I had intended to build a permanent home for the ark of the covenant of the Lord and as a footstool for our God, and I prepared materials for the building. But God said to me, ‘You shall not build a house for My Name (Presence), because you are a man of war and have shed blood.’ However, the Lord, the God of Israel, chose me from all in my father’s house to be king over Israel forever. For He has chosen Judah to be the leader; and in the house (tribe) of Judah he chose the house of my father; and among the sons of my father He was pleased to make me king over all Israel. Of all my sons (for the Lord has given me many sons) He has chosen my son Solomon to sit on the throne of the kingdom of the Lord over Israel. He said to me, ‘Solomon your son shall build My house and My courts; for I have chosen him to be a son to Me, and I will be a father to him. [a]I will establish his kingdom forever if he loyally and continually obeys My commandments and My ordinances, as is done today.’ Now therefore, in the sight of all Israel, the assembly of the Lord, and in the hearing of our God, observe and seek after all the commandments of the Lord your God so that you may possess the good land and leave it as an inheritance to your sons after you forever.

“As for you, Solomon my son, know the God of your father [have personal knowledge of Him, be acquainted with, and understand Him; appreciate, heed, and cherish Him] and serve Him with a blameless heart and a willing mind; for the Lord searches all hearts and minds, and understands every intent and inclination of the thoughts. If you seek Him [inquiring for and of Him and requiring Him as your first and vital necessity] He will let you find Him; but [b]if you abandon (turn away from) Him, He will reject you forever. 10 Consider this carefully, for the Lord has chosen you to build a house for the sanctuary. Be courageous and strong and do it.”

11 Then David gave to his son Solomon the plan for the porch of the temple, its buildings, its treasuries, its upper chambers, its inner rooms, and for the place for the [ark and its] mercy seat; 12 and the plan of all that he had in [c]mind, for the courts of the house of the Lord, and for all the surrounding rooms, for the storerooms of the house of God and for the storerooms for the dedicated gifts and offerings; 13 the plan for the divisions of the priests and the Levites and for all the work of the service in the house of the Lord and for all the utensils for service in the house of the Lord; 14 for the golden utensils, the weight of gold and silver for all the gold and silver articles for every kind of service; 15 and the weight of gold for the golden lampstands and their golden lamps, with the weight of each lampstand and its lamps; and the weight of silver for the silver lampstands, with the weight of each lampstand and its lamps according to the use of each lampstand; 16 the gold by weight for each table of showbread, and the silver for the tables of silver; 17 and the forks, the basins, and the pitchers of pure gold; and for the golden bowls with the weight for each bowl; and for the silver bowls with the weight for each bowl; 18 and for the altar of incense refined gold by weight; and gold for the model of the chariot of the cherubim that spread their wings and covered the ark of the Lord’s covenant.

19 “All this,” said David, “the Lord made me understand in writing by His hand upon me, all the work and details [to be done] according to this plan.”

20 Then David said to his son Solomon, “Be strong and courageous, and take action; do not fear nor be dismayed, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you nor [d]abandon you [but will guide you in the construction] until you have finished all the work for the service of the house of the Lord. 21 And see, [you have] the divisions of the priests and Levites for all the service of God’s house, and every willing, skillful man will be with you in all the kinds of work for any kind of service. Also the officers and all the people will be entirely at your command.”

Notas al pie

  1. 1 Chronicles 28:7 See note 17:14.
  2. 1 Chronicles 28:9 In 1 Chr 28:7 God promises to establish Solomon’s kingdom forever; however, in 1 Kin 11:9-11 God becomes angry with Solomon for his degenerate conduct and tolerance of paganism and declares that the kingdom will be torn from him. By disregarding God’s word Solomon nullified his covenant with God. His wisdom was overcome by his love of power, his lack of ethics, his arrogance, his personal aggrandizement, and his distorted sense of privilege.
