I Chronicles 22 (kjv)


Then DavidH1732 saidH559, This is the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068 GodH430, and this is the altarH4196 of the burnt offeringH5930 for IsraelH3478.2And DavidH1732 commandedH559 to gather togetherH3664 the strangersH1616 that were in the landH776 of IsraelH3478; and he setH5975 masonsH2672 to hewH2672 wroughtH1496 stonesH68 to buildH1129 the houseH1004 of GodH430.3And DavidH1732 preparedH3559 ironH1270 in abundanceH7230 for the nailsH4548 for the doorsH1817 of the gatesH8179, and for the joiningsH4226; and brassH5178 in abundanceH7230 without weightH4948;4Also cedarH730 treesH6086 in abundanceH369 H4557: for the ZidoniansH6722 and they of TyreH6876 broughtH935 muchH7230 cedarH730 woodH6086 to DavidH1732.5And DavidH1732 saidH559, SolomonH8010 my sonH1121 is youngH5288 and tenderH7390, and the houseH1004 that is to be buildedH1129 for the LORDH3068 must be exceedingH4605 magnificalH1431, of fameH8034 and of gloryH8597 throughout all countriesH776: I will therefore now make preparationH3559 for it. So DavidH1732 preparedH3559 abundantlyH7230 beforeH6440 his deathH4194.

6Then he calledH7121 for SolomonH8010 his sonH1121, and chargedH6680 him to buildH1129 an houseH1004 for the LORDH3068 GodH430 of IsraelH3478.7And DavidH1732 saidH559 to SolomonH8010, My sonH1121, as for me, it was in my mindH3824 to buildH1129 an houseH1004 unto the nameH8034 of the LORDH3068 my GodH430:8But the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 came to me, sayingH559, Thou hast shedH8210 bloodH1818 abundantlyH7230, and hast madeH6213 greatH1419 warsH4421: thou shalt not buildH1129 an houseH1004 unto my nameH8034, because thou hast shedH8210 muchH7227 bloodH1818 upon the earthH776 in my sightH6440.9Behold, a sonH1121 shall be bornH3205 to thee, who shall be a manH376 of restH4496; and I will give him restH5117 from all his enemiesH341 round aboutH5439: for his nameH8034 shall be SolomonH8010, and I will giveH5414 peaceH7965 and quietnessH8253 unto IsraelH3478 in his daysH3117.10He shall buildH1129 an houseH1004 for my nameH8034; and he shall be my sonH1121, and I will be his fatherH1; and I will establishH3559 the throneH3678 of his kingdomH4438 over IsraelH3478 forH5704 everH5769.11Now, my sonH1121, the LORDH3068 be with thee; and prosperH6743 thou, and buildH1129 the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068 thy GodH430, as he hath saidH1696 of thee.12Only the LORDH3068 giveH5414 thee wisdomH7922 and understandingH998, and give thee chargeH6680 concerning IsraelH3478, that thou mayest keepH8104 the lawH8451 of the LORDH3068 thy GodH430.13Then shalt thou prosperH6743, if thou takest heedH8104 to fulfilH6213 the statutesH2706 and judgmentsH4941 which the LORDH3068 chargedH6680 MosesH4872 with concerning IsraelH3478: be strongH2388, and of good courageH553; dreadH3372 not, nor be dismayedH2865.14Now, behold, in my troubleH6040 I have preparedH3559 for the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068 an hundredH3967 thousandH505 talentsH3603 of goldH2091, and a thousandH505 thousandH505 talentsH3603 of silverH3701; and of brassH5178 and ironH1270 without weightH4948; for it is in abundanceH7230: timberH6086 also and stoneH68 have I preparedH3559; and thou mayest addH3254 thereto.15Moreover there are workmenH6213 H4399 with thee in abundanceH7230, hewersH2672 and workersH2796 of stoneH68 and timberH6086, and all manner of cunning menH2450 for every manner of workH4399.16Of the goldH2091, the silverH3701, and the brassH5178, and the ironH1270, there is no numberH4557. AriseH6965 therefore, and be doingH6213, and the LORDH3068 be with thee.

17DavidH1732 also commandedH6680 all the princesH8269 of IsraelH3478 to helpH5826 SolomonH8010 his sonH1121, saying,18Is not the LORDH3068 your GodH430 with you? and hath he not given you restH5117 on every sideH5439? for he hath givenH5414 the inhabitantsH3427 of the landH776 into mine handH3027; and the landH776 is subduedH3533 beforeH6440 the LORDH3068, and beforeH6440 his peopleH5971.19Now setH5414 your heartH3824 and your soulH5315 to seekH1875 the LORDH3068 your GodH430; ariseH6965 therefore, and buildH1129 ye the sanctuaryH4720 of the LORDH3068 GodH430, to bringH935 the arkH727 of the covenantH1285 of the LORDH3068, and the holyH6944 vesselsH3627 of GodH430, into the houseH1004 that is to be builtH1129 to the nameH8034 of the LORDH3068.
