1 Kings 8:1-3 New Century Version (NCV)
The Ark Is Brought into the Temple
8 King Solomon called for the elders of Israel, the heads of the tribes, and the leaders of the families to come to him in Jerusalem. He wanted them to bring the Ark of the Agreement with the Lord from the older part of the city. 2 So all the Israelites came together with King Solomon during the festival in the month of Ethanim, the seventh month.
3 When all the elders of Israel arrived, the priests lifted up the Ark.
