1 Kings 8 12
Then Solomon said,“ Yahweh has said that he would dwell in the thick darkness.
Clouds and darkness are around him. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
The people stayed at a distance, and Moses came near to the thick darkness where God was.
Part your heavens, Yahweh, and come down. Touch the mountains, and they will smoke.
He lays the beams of his rooms in the waters. He makes the clouds his chariot. He walks on the wings of the wind.
It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour.The sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was torn in two.
Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour.
Oh that you would tear the heavens, that you would come down, that the mountains might quake at your presence.As when fire kindles the brushwood, and the fire causes the water to boil; Make your name known to your adversaries, that the nations may tremble at your presence!When you did awesome things which we didn’t look for, you came down, and the mountains quaked at your presence.
You came near and stood under the mountain. The mountain burned with fire to the heart of the sky, with darkness, cloud, and thick darkness.
Yahweh is slow to anger, and great in power, and will by no means leave the guilty unpunished. Yahweh has his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.
