2 Chronicles 1-5
Solomon brings the leaders of Israel to the tabernacle at Gibeon, where the tabernacle is (the ark has been taken to Jerusalem, but the tabernacle itself stays at Gibeon). He makes a thousand burnt offerings at the high place at Gibeon. Solomon asks for and receives wisdom from God (but not in a dream, as in 1 Kings). God gives wealth and strength to Solomon and Israel.
Solomon plans to build temple, requests and receives assistance from Huram king of Tyre, and assigns alien residents in Israel as workers.
Solomon begins building temple in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, where the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite had been. Detailed description is given of materials, measurements, porch, rooms, angels, pillars and so on. See 1 Kings for diagram.
Solomon makes the altar, tank, basins, candlesticks, tables, golden altar, and other furniture and for the temple.
The temple is completed. The leaders of Israel gather, sing and worship; priests bring the ark into the Most Holy Place, and the Lord’s glory fills the temple, so the priests could not continue ministering.
