1 Chronicles 22
David Charges Solomon to Build The LORD's House1 And David said, This is the house of the lord God, and this is the altar for the whole burnt-offering to Israel. 2 And David said to gather together all the foreigners in the land of Israel. And he placed quarriers to quarry [2stones 1planed] to build a house to the lord. 3 And [2iron 1much] for the nails of the doorways, and of the gates, and of the hinges, David prepared; and brass in multitude -- there was no counting its weight. 4 And [3for the wood 4of cedars 1there was no 2number]; for [6brought 1the 2Sidonians 3and 4the 5Tyrians] wood of cedars in multitude to David. 5 And David said, Solomon my son [2boy 1is a tender], and the house to be built to the lord must be to magnify upward, for a name and for glory in all the earth. I shall prepare for it. And David prepared for it in multitude before his decease. 6 And he called Solomon his son, and gave charge to him to build the house to the lord God of Israel. 7 And David said, Solomon, My child, it was upon my soul to build a house to the name of the lord my God. 8 And [3came 4unto 5me 1the word 2of the lord], saying, [2blood 3in 4multitude 1You poured out], and [3wars 2great 1you made]; you shall not build a house to my name, for [3blood 2much 1you poured out] upon the earth before me. 9 Behold, a son is born to you, this one will be a man of rest; and I will rest him from all his enemies round about. For Solomon is his name, and peace and rest I shall appoint over Israel in his days. 10 This one shall build a house to my name, and this one shall be to me as a son, and I will be to him for father, and I will prepare the throne of his kingdom in Israel unto the eon. 11 And now, O my son, may [2be 3with 4you 1the lord]; and you shall prosper, and shall build a house to the lord your God, as he said concerning you. 12 Only may [2give 3to you 1the lord] wisdom and understanding, and strengthen you over Israel, to guard and to observe the law of the lord your God. 13 Then the way shall prosper, if you should guard to observe the orders and the judgments which the lord gave charge to Moses for Israel. Be manly and be strong! Fear not nor be timid! 14 And behold, I according to my poorness prepared for the house of the lord -- gold [3talents 1of a hundred 2thousand], and silver [3of talents 1of a thousand 2thousand], and brass, and iron of which there is no counting the weight, for [2in 3multitude 1it is]. And wood and stones I prepared. And you add unto these things! 15 And with you 3in 4multitude 1doing 2 the works] are craftsmen, quarriers of stones, and fabricators of wood, and every wise one for every work; 16 in gold and silver, in brass and in iron in which there is no number. Rise up and act and the lord be with you! 17 And David gave charge to all the rulers of Israel to assist Solomon his son, saying, 18 Is not the lord with you? And he will give you rest round about, for he delivered up into my hand the ones dwelling the land, and [3is submitted 1the 2land] before the lord, and before his people. 19 Now give your hearts and your souls to seek the lord your God! And arise and build the sanctuary to the lord, to your God! to carry in the ark of the covenant of the lord, and [3items 1the 2holy] of God, into the house being built to the name of the lord.
