1 Then David said, Deut. 12:5;2 Sam. 24:18;ch. 21:18, 19,26,28;2 Chr. 3:1This is the house of the Lord God, and this is the altar of the burnt offering for Israel.
2 And David commanded to gather together 1 Ki. 9:21the strangers that were in the land of Israel; and he set masons to hew wrought stones to build the house of God.
3 And David prepared iron in abundance for the nails for the doors of the gates, and for the joinings; and brass in abundance ver. 14;1 Ki. 7:47without weight;
4 Also cedar trees in abundance: for the 1 Ki. 5:6Zidonians and they of Tyre brought much cedar wood to David.
5 And David said, ch. 29:1Solomon my son is young and tender, and the house that is to be builded for the Lord must be exceeding magnifical, of fame and of glory throughout all countries: I will therefore now make preparation for it. So David prepared abundantly before his death.
6 Then he called for Solomon his son, and charged him to build a house for the Lord God of Israel.
7 And David said to Solomon, My son, as for me, 2 Sam. 7:2;1 Ki. 8:17;ch. 17:1;& 28:2it was in my mind to build a house Deut. 12:5,11unto the name of the Lord my God:
8 But the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 1 Ki. 5:3Thou hast shed blood abundantly, and hast made great wars: thou shalt not build a house unto my name, because thou hast shed much blood upon the earth in my sight.
9 ch. 28:5Behold, a son shall be born to thee, who shall be a man of rest; and I will give him 1 Ki. 4:25;& 5:4rest from all his enemies round about: for his name shall be [a]Solomon, and I will give peace and quietness unto Israel in his days.
10 2 Sam. 7:13;1 Ki. 5:5;ch. 17:12,13;& 28:6He shall build a house for my name; and Heb. 1:5he shall be my son, and I will be his father; and I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel for ever.
11 Now, my son, ver. 16the Lord be with thee; and prosper thou, and build the house of the Lord thy God, as he hath said of thee.
12 Only the Lord 1 Ki. 3:9,12give thee wisdom and understanding, and give thee charge concerning Israel, that thou mayest keep the law of the Lord thy God.
13 Josh. 1:7,8;ch. 28:7Then shalt thou prosper, if thou takest heed to fulfil the statutes and judgments which the Lord charged Moses with concerning Israel: Deut. 31:7,8;Josh. 1:6,7,9;ch. 28:20be strong, and of good courage; dread not, nor be dismayed.
14 Now behold, [b]in my trouble I have prepared for the house of the Lord an hundred thousand talents of gold, and a thousand thousand talents of silver; and of brass and iron As ver. 3without weight; for it is in abundance: timber also and stone have I prepared; and thou mayest add thereto.
16 Of the gold, the silver, and the brass, and the iron, there is no number. Arise therefore, and be doing, and ver. 11the Lord be with thee.
17 David also commanded all the princes of Israel to help Solomon his son, saying,
18 Is not the Lord your God with you? Deut. 12:10;Josh. 22:4;2 Sam. 7:1;ch. 23:25and hath he not given you rest on every side? for he hath given the inhabitants of the land into mine hand; and the land is subdued before the Lord, and before his people.
19 Now set your heart and your soul to seek the Lord your God; arise therefore, and build ye the sanctuary of the Lord God, to 2 Chr. 5:7bring the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and the holy vessels of God, into the house that is to be built 1 Ki. 5:3to the name of the Lord.
