2 Chron 8:15 And they did not depart from the commandment of the king to the priests and Levites in any manner or concerning the storehouses.
2 Chron 8:16 Thus all the work of Solomon was carried out from the day of the foundation of the house of the Lord, and until it was finished. So the house of the Lord was completed.
2 Chron 8:17 Then Solomon went to Ezion-geber and to Eloth on the seashore in the land of Edom.
