1 Kings 8:1-3 New Life Version (NLV)
The Special Box Brought into the House of God
8 Then King Solomon gathered together the leaders of Israel in front of him in Jerusalem. He gathered together all the heads of the families and the leaders of the fathers’ houses of the sons of Israel. They gathered to bring up the Lord’s special box of the agreement from Zion the city of David. 2 All the men of Israel gathered to King Solomon at the special supper in the seventh month, Ethanim. 3 All the leaders of Israel came, and the religious leaders took up the Lord’s special box of the agreement.
