1 H1732 Then David H559 [H8799] said H1004 , This is the house H3068 of the LORD H430 God H4196 , and this is the altar H5930 of the burnt offering H3478 for Israel.
2 H1732 And David H559 [H8799] commanded H3664 [H8800] to gather H1616 the strangers H776 that were in the land H3478 of Israel H5975 [H8686] ; and he set H2672 [H8802] masons H2672 [H8800] to hew H1496 wrought H68 stones H1129 [H8800] to build H1004 the house H430 of God.
3 H1732 And David H3559 [H8689] prepared H1270 iron H7230 in abundance H4548 for the nails H1817 for the doors H8179 of the gates H4226 , and for the joinings H5178 ; and brass H7230 in abundance H4948 beyond weight;
4 H730 Also cedar H6086 trees H369 H4557 in abundance H6722 : for the Zidonians H6876 and they of Tyre H935 [H8689] brought H7230 much H730 cedar H6086 wood H1732 to David.
5 H1732 And David H559 [H8799] said H8010 , Solomon H1121 my son H5288 is young H7390 and tender H1004 , and the house H1129 [H8800] that is to be built H3068 for the LORD H4605 must be very H1431 [H8687] magnificent H8034 , of fame H8597 and of glory H776 throughout all countries H3559 [H8686] : I will therefore now make preparation H1732 for it. So David H7230 made abundant H3559 [H8686] preparation H6440 before H4194 his death.
6 H7121 [H8799] Then he called H8010 for Solomon H1121 his son H6680 [H8762] , and charged H1129 [H8800] him to build H1004 an house H3068 for the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel.
7 H1732 And David H559 [H8799] said H8010 to Solomon H1121 , My son H3824 , as for me, it was in my mind H1129 [H8800] to build H1004 an house H8034 to the name H3068 of the LORD H430 my God:
8 H1697 But the word H3068 of the LORD H559 [H8800] came to me, saying H8210 [H8804] , Thou hast shed H1818 blood H7230 abundantly H6213 [H8804] , and hast made H1419 great H4421 wars H1129 [H8799] : thou shalt not build H1004 an house H8034 to my name H8210 [H8804] , because thou hast shed H7227 much H1818 blood H776 upon the earth H6440 in my sight.
9 H1121 Behold, a son H3205 [H8737] shall be born H376 to thee, who shall be a man H4496 of rest H5117 [H8689] ; and I will give him rest H341 [H8802] from all his enemies H5439 on every side H8034 : for his name H8010 shall be Solomon H5414 [H8799] , and I will give H7965 peace H8253 and quietness H3478 to Israel H3117 in his days.
10 H1129 [H8799] He shall build H1004 an house H8034 for my name H1121 ; and he shall be my son H1 , and I will be his father H3559 [H8689] ; and I will establish H3678 the throne H4438 of his kingdom H3478 over Israel H5704 for H5769 ever.
11 H1121 Now, my son H3068 , the LORD H6743 [H8689] be with thee; and prosper H1129 [H8804] thou, and build H1004 the house H3068 of the LORD H430 thy God H1696 [H8765] , as he hath said of thee.
12 H3068 Only the LORD H5414 [H8799] give H7922 thee wisdom H998 and understanding H6680 [H8762] , and give thee charge H3478 concerning Israel H8104 [H8800] , that thou mayest keep H8451 the law H3068 of the LORD H430 thy God.
13 H6743 [H8686] Then shalt thou prosper H8104 [H8799] , if thou shalt take heed H6213 [H8800] to fulfil H2706 the statutes H4941 and judgments H3068 which the LORD H6680 [H8765] charged H4872 Moses H3478 with concerning Israel H2388 [H8798] : be strong H553 [H8798] , and of good courage H3372 [H8799] ; dread H2865 [H8735] not, nor be dismayed.
14 H6040 Now, behold, in my trouble H3559 [H8689] I have prepared H1004 for the house H3068 of the LORD H3967 an hundred H505 thousand H3603 talents H2091 of gold H505 , and a million H3603 talents H3701 of silver H5178 ; and of brass H1270 and iron H4948 beyond weight H7230 ; for it is in abundance H6086 : timber H68 also and stone H3559 [H8689] have I prepared H3254 [H8686] ; and thou mayest add to them.
15 H6213 H4399 [H8802] Moreover there are workmen H7230 with thee in great numbers H2672 [H8802] , hewers H2796 and workers H68 of stone H6086 and timber H2450 , and all manner of skilful men H4399 for every manner of work.
16 H2091 Of the gold H3701 , the silver H5178 , and the brass H1270 , and the iron H4557 , there is no number H6965 [H8798] . Arise H6213 [H8798] therefore, and be doing H3068 , and the LORD be with thee.
17 H1732 David H6680 [H8762] also commanded H8269 all the princes H3478 of Israel H5826 [H8800] to help H8010 Solomon H1121 his son, saying,
18 H3068 Is not the LORD H430 your God H5117 [H8689] with you? and hath he not given you rest H5439 on every side H5414 [H8804] ? for he hath given H3427 [H8802] the inhabitants H776 of the land H3027 into my hand H776 ; and the land H3533 [H8738] is subdued H6440 before H3068 the LORD H6440 , and before H5971 his people.
19 H5414 [H8798] Now set H3824 your heart H5315 and your soul H1875 [H8800] to seek H3068 the LORD H430 your God H6965 [H8798] ; arise H1129 [H8798] therefore, and build H4720 ye the sanctuary H3068 of the LORD H430 God H935 [H8687] , to bring H727 the ark H1285 of the covenant H3068 of the LORD H6944 , and the holy H3627 vessels H430 of God H1004 , into the house H1129 [H8737] that is to be built H8034 to the name H3068 of the LORD.
