2 Chronicles 1

The solemn offering of Solomon at Gibeon.

2 Chronicles 1:1 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Solomon the son of David was strengthened in his kingdom, and the LORD his God [was] with him, and magnified him exceedingly. 2 Chronicles 1:2 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Then Solomon spoke unto all Israel, to the captains of thousands and of hundreds, and to the judges, and to every governor in all Israel, the chief of the fathers. 2 Chronicles 1:3 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} So Solomon, and all the congregation with him, went to the high place that [was] at Gibeon; for there was the tabernacle of the congregation of God, which Moses the servant of the LORD had made in the wilderness. 2 Chronicles 1:4 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} But the ark of God had David brought up from Kirjath-jearim to [the place which] David had prepared for it: for he had pitched a tent for it at Jerusalem. 2 Chronicles 1:5 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Moreover the brazen altar, that Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, had made, he put before the tabernacle of the LORD: and Solomon and the congregation sought unto it. 2 Chronicles 1:6 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Solomon went up thither to the brazen altar before the LORD, which [was] at the tabernacle of the congregation, and offered a thousand burnt offerings upon it.
