The ark is brought with great solemnity into the temple: the temple is filled with the glory of God.

[1] Then Solomon brought in all the things that David his father had vowed, the silver, and the gold, and all the vessels he put among the treasures of the house of God.
Intulit igitur Salomon omnia, quae voverat David pater suus : argentum, et aurum, et universa vasa posuit in thesauris domus Dei.

[2] And after this he gathered together the ancients of Israel, and all the princes of the tribes, and the heads of the families, of the children of Israel to Jerusalem, to bring the ark of the covenant of the Lord out of the city of David, which is Sion.
Post quae congregavit majores natu Israel, et cunctos principes tribuum, et capita familiarum de filiis Israel in Jerusalem, ut adducerent arcam foederis Domini de civitate David, quae est Sion.

[3] And all the men of Israel came to the king in the solemn day of the seventh month.
Venerunt itaque ad regem omnes viri Israel in die solemni mensis septimi.

[4] And when all the ancients of Israel were come, the Levites took up the ark,
Cumque venissent cuncti seniorum Israel, portaverunt Levitae arcam,

[5] And brought it in, together with all the furniture of the tabernacle. And the priests with the Levites carried the vessels of the sanctuary, which were in the tabernacle.
et intulerunt eam, et omnem paraturam tabernaculi. Porro vasa sanctuarii, quae erant in tabernaculo, portaverunt sacerdotes cum Levitis.

[6] And king Solomon and all the assembly of Israel, and all that were gathered together before the ark, sacrificed rams, and oxen without number: so great was the multitude of the victims.
Rex autem Salomon, et universus coetus Israel, et omnes, qui fuerunt congregati ante arcam, immolabant arietes, et boves absque ullo numero : tanta enim erat multitudo victimarum.

[7] And the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the Lord into its place, that is, to the oracle of the temple, into the holy of holies under the wings of the cherubims:
Et intulerunt sacerdotes arcam foederis Domini in locum suum, id est, ad oraculum templi, in Sancta sanctorum subter alas cherubim :

[8] So that the cherubims spread their wings over the place, in which the ark was set, and covered the ark itself and its staves.
ita ut cherubim expanderent alas suas super locum, in quo posita erat arca, et ipsam arcam tegerent cum vectibus suis.

[9] Now the ends of the staves wherewith the ark was carried, because they were some thing longer, were seen before the oracle: but if a man were a little outward, he could not see them. So the ark has been there unto this day.
Vectium autem, quibus portabatur arca, quia paululum longiores erant, capita parebant ante oraculum : si vero quis paululum fuisset extrinsecus, eos videre non poterat. Fuit itaque arca ibi usque in praesentem diem.

[10] And there was nothing else in the ark but the two tables which Moses put there at Horeb when the Lord gave the law to the children of Israel, at their coming out of Egypt.
Nihilque erat aliud in arca, nisi duae tabulae, quas posuerat Moyses in Horeb, quando legem dedit Dominus filiis Israel egredientibus ex Aegypto.

[11] Now when the priests were come out of the sanctuary, (for all the priests that could be found there, mere sanctified: and as yet at that time the courses and orders of the ministries were not divided among them,)
Egressis autem sacerdotibus de sanctuario ( omnes enim sacerdotes qui ibi potuerant inveniri, sanctificati sunt : nec adhuc in illo tempore vices, et ministeriorum ordo inter eos divisus erat),

[12] Both the Levites and the singing men, that is, both they that were under Asaph, and they that were under Heman, and they that were under Idithun, with their sons, and their brethren, clothed with fine linen, sounded with cymbals, and psalteries, and harps, standing on the east side of the altar, and with them a hundred and twenty priests, sounding with trumpets.
tam Levitae quam cantores, id est, et qui sub Asaph erant, et qui sub Eman, et qui sub Idithun, filii, et fratres eorum vestiti byssinis, cymbalis, et psalteriis, et citharis concrepabant, stantes ad orientalem plagam altaris, et cum eis sacerdotes centum viginti canentes tubis.

[13] So when they all sounded together, both with trumpets, and voice, and cymbals, and organs, and with divers kind of musical instruments, and lifted up their voice on high: the sound was heard afar off, so that when they began to praise the Lord, and to say: Give glory to the Lord for he is good, for his mercy endureth for ever: the house of God was filled with a cloud.
Igitur cunctis pariter, et tubis, et voce, et cymbalis, et organis, et diversi generis musicorum concinentibus, et vocem in sublime tollentibus, longe sonitus audiebatur, ita ut cum Dominum laudare coepissent et dicere : Confitemini Domino quoniam bonus, quoniam in aeternum misericordia ejus : impleretur domus Dei nube,

[14] Nor could the priests stand and minister by reason of the cloud. For the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God.
nec possent sacerdotes stare et ministrare propter caliginem. Compleverat enim gloria Domini domum Dei.
