2 Chronicles 5:1-14, NLT
2 Chronicles 5
1So Solomon finished all his work on the Temple of the Lord. Then he brought all the gifts his father, David, had dedicated—the silver, the gold, and the various articles—and he stored them in the treasuries of the Temple of God.
The Ark Brought to the Temple
2Solomon then summoned to Jerusalem the elders of Israel and all the heads of tribes—the leaders of the ancestral families of Israel. They were to bring the Ark of the Lord’s Covenant to the Temple from its location in the City of David, also known as Zion.
4When all the elders of Israel arrived, the Levites picked up the Ark.
7Then the priests carried the Ark of the Lord’s Covenant into the inner sanctuary of the Temple—the Most Holy Place—and placed it beneath the wings of the cherubim.
11Then the priests left the Holy Place. All the priests who were present had purified themselves, whether or not they were on duty that day.
“He is good!
His faithful love endures forever!”
At that moment a thick cloud filled the Temple of the Lord.
