2 Chronicles 7-8
Chapter 7: The Lord Appears Unto Solomon
Solomon ended his dedicatory prayer when The Lord came down from heaven and consumed his burnt offerings and sacrifices and the priests could not even enter into the temple, because the glory of The Lord had filled the entire temple. When everyone sees tv glory of God in the temple, the children of Israel bow to the earth, and worshiped and praised God. Solomon then offered 22,000 oxen and 22,000 sheep as sacrifices. Solomon had to use the middle court, because the altar in the temple could not accept all of the fat and meat offerings. But the children of Israel keep the feast for 8 days, and on the eighth day they made a Solomon assembly.
The Lord appeared to Solomon by night and tells him that his prayers have been answered and that he will overlook the little things that men do, if they turn away from their evil ways and do good He will be patient and kind to the children of Israel. The Lord also promises to bless Solomon with many things if he follows The Lord, but if he did not follow The Lord he would be cut off.
Chapter 8: Solomon Builds Cities
Hurman restores cities to Solomon and Solomon causes that his people dwell in those cities. Solomon goes on to build more cities, like; Beth-horon and Baalath and all the other cities. Solomon offers sacrifices to The Lord according to the law of Moses and priests and Levites are appointed to serve The Lord.
