Previous chapter Index Next chapter
one And David said, Behold the house of the Lord God, and behold an altar for the burnt offerings of Israel.
2 And David ordered the aliens who were in the land of Israel to be assembled, and set up stone masons to trim the stones to build the house of God.
3 And David prepared a lot of iron for nails to the gate doors and for ties, and a lot of copper without weight,
4 and cedar trees without counting, because the Sidonians and Tyrians delivered to David many cedar trees.
5 And David said: Solomon, my son, is young and weak, and the house that should be built for the Lord must be very magnificent, for glory and adornment before all the lands: so I will prepare for him. And David prepared much before his death.

6 And he called on Solomon his son, and bequeathed to him to build a house for the Lord God of Israel.
7 And David said to Solomon, My son! I had in my heart to build a house in the name of the Lord my God,
eight but the word of the Lord came to me, and said: `` You shed a lot of blood and waged great wars; you must not build houses for My name because you have shed a lot of blood on the earth before My face.
nine Now, your son will be born: he will be a peaceful man; I will give him rest from all his enemies around: therefore his name will be Solomon. And I will give peace and rest to Israel in his days.
ten He will build a house for my name, and he will be my son, and I will be his father, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever. ”
eleven And now, my son! may the Lord be with you, that you may be prosperous and build a house for the Lord your God, as He spoke of you.
12 May the Lord give you meaning and reason, and set you over Israel; and keep the law of the Lord thy God.
thirteen Then you will be prosperous if you try to fulfill the statutes and laws that the Lord commanded Moses for Israel. Be firm and courageous, do not be afraid and do not lose heart.
fourteen And now, in my poverty, I prepared for the house of the Lord a hundred thousand talents of gold and a thousand thousand talents of silver, but copper and iron are not weight, because there are many; I also prepared wood and stones, and you add to that.
fifteen You have many workers, and stonecutters, carvers and carpenters, and all capable of any work;
sixteen gold, silver and copper and iron no account: start and do; The Lord will be with you.

17 And David bequeathed to all the princes of Israel to help Solomon his son:
18 are you not the Lord our God, who has given you peace from all sides? because He delivered into my hands the inhabitants of the earth, and the earth was submitted before the Lord and before his people.
19 Therefore, set your heart and soul to seek the Lord your God. Stand and build a sanctuary to the Lord God to bring the ark of the covenant of the Lord and the sacred vessels of God to a house built by the name of the Lord.
