Now let every one who is so inclined fill his hands this day for the Lord. 6 Thereupon the chiefs of families, and the chiefs of the sons of Israel, and the captains of thousands, and the captains of hundreds, and the overseers of the king's works and his builders, were liberally disposed, 7 and gave for the works of the house of the Lord five thousand talents and ten thousand pieces of gold, and ten thousand talents of silver, and eighteen thousand talents of brass, and a hundred thousand talents of iron. 8 And they who had precious stones gave them for the treasures of the house of the Lord which were under the care of Jeiel the Gersonite. 9 And the people were rejoiced at this readiness, for with a per 10 feet heart they gave liberally to the Lord. And David the king was exceedingly rejoiced, 10 and blessed the Lord in the presence of the assembly, saying, Blessed art thou Lord God of Israel, our Father, from everlasting to everlasting. 11 To thee, Lord, be ascribed greatness, and power, and exultation, and victory, and majesty; for thou hast dominion over all things in heaven and on earth. At thy presence every king and nation is struck with awe. 12 From thee come riches and glory; Thou, Lord, rulest over all. Thou art the head of all dominion, and in thy hand is majesty and power. And by thy hand, Almighty Sovereign, all things are made great and strong. 13 Now therefore, Lord, to thee we render thanks; and we praise thy glorious name. 14 But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be enabled to shew such liberality to thee. For all things are thine and of thine own we have given thee. 15 For we before thee are strangers and sojourners as all our fathers were. Our days on earth are like a shadow and there is no fixed abiding. 16 Lord our God, all this store which I have provided for building a house to thy holy name is from thy bounty, and belongeth all to thee. 17 As I know, O Lord, that thou triest hearts and lovest righteousness, I have with singleness of heart freely offered all these things, and have now seen with joy all thy people who are here present freely offering to thee.
