And it was so, that when Solomon had made an end of praying all this prayer and supplication unto the LORD, he arose from before the altar of the LORD, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to heaven. And he stood, and blessed all the congregation of Israel with a loud voice, saying,
Blessed be the LORD, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant. The LORD our God be with us, as he was with our fathers: let him not leave us, nor forsake us: That he may incline our hearts unto him, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and his statutes, and his judgments, which he commanded our fathers. And let these my words, wherewith I have made supplication before the LORD, be nigh unto the LORD our God day and night, that he maintain the cause of his servant, and the cause of his people Israel at all times, as the matter shall require: That all the people of the earth may know that the LORD is God, and that there is none else. Let your heart therefore be perfect with the LORD our God, to walk in his statutes, and to keep his commandments, as at this day.
Y sucedió que cuando Salomón terminó de decir toda esta oración y súplica al SEÑOR, se levantó de delante del altar del SEÑOR, de estar de rodillas con sus manos extendidas hacia el cielo. Y se puso de pie y bendijo a toda la asamblea de Israel en alta voz, diciendo: Bendito sea el SEÑOR, que ha dado reposo a su pueblo Israel, conforme a todo lo que prometió; ninguna palabra ha fallado de toda su buena promesa que hizo por medio de su siervo Moisés. Que el SEÑOR nuestro Dios esté con nosotros, como estuvo con nuestros padres; que no nos deje ni nos abandone, para que incline nuestro corazón hacia El, para que andemos en todos sus caminos y para que guardemos sus mandamientos, sus estatutos y sus preceptos que ordenó a nuestros padres. Y que estas palabras mías, con las que he suplicado delante del SEÑOR, estén cerca del SEÑOR nuestro Dios día y noche, para que El haga justicia a su siervo y justicia a su pueblo Israel, según las necesidades de cada día, a fin de que todos los pueblos de la tierra sepan que el SEÑOR es Dios; no hay otro. Estén, pues, vuestros corazones enteramente dedicados al SEÑOR nuestro Dios, para que andemos en sus estatutos y guardemos sus mandamientos, como en este día.
Solomon showed us here how we can come to God in a way that is pleasing to our Maker. He does hear us as long as we walk as sons and daughters of Him. We must always support God’s people Israel no matter what the world tells us. We also must always be willing to claim Him in everything. As the last 2 verses say…there is no other God, and our hearts must be right and perfect before Him. How is your heart with God?
1O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.
2For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD.
All nations must worship and adore Him. God is great and mighty, He loves all and wants us to give our cares to Him. Sing and praise to God almighty!
Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD weighs the hearts.
Todo camino del hombre es recto ante sus ojos, pero el SEÑOR sondea los corazones.
I have done it and you have done it; we sometimes think we are right on something and days, months or even years later, we find we were wrong. God knows it and He knows our hearts. Lets all try to think and use the comforter(the Holy Spirit) to guide us. God knows our hearts, so if you are doing or saying because you believe God is leading you to, don’t kick yourself if someone takes offense. God bless all of you!
Bow down your ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply your heart unto my knowledge. For it is a pleasant thing if you keep them within you; they shall all be fitted on your lips. That your trust may be in the LORD, I have made known to you this day, even to you. Have not I written to you excellent things in counsels and knowledge, That I might make you know the certainty of the words of truth; that you might answer the words of truth to them that send unto you?
Inclina tu oído y oye las palabras de los sabios, y aplica tu corazón a mi conocimiento; porque te será agradable si las guardas dentro de ti, para que estén listas en tus labios. Para que tu confianza esté en el SEÑOR, te he instruido hoy a ti también. ¿No te he escrito cosas excelentes de consejo y conocimiento, para hacerte saber la certeza de las palabras de verdad, a fin de que respondas correctamente al que te ha enviado?
There is worldly wisdom and Godly wisdom. For me, the most important is Godly wisdom.At times, it seems the two are separate and do not coincide. In the end all will come together and we will all bow down and worship the Lord God in the Trinity. I will keep studying His Word and when obstacles come my way, I will look within God’s Word for an answer. It is the one and only way to truly survive. Today, I thank You Father God for the help You give me daily, Hourly and by each step I take; without You, I would not know what to do. Praise His Holy Name!
