1 H1732 And David H6950 [H8686] congregated H8269 all the princes H3478 of Israel, H8269 the princes H7626 of the tribes, H8269 and the captains H4256 of the companies H8334 [H8764] that ministered H4428 to the king H4256 by course, H8269 and the captains H505 over the thousands, H8269 and captains H3967 over the hundreds, H8269 and the stewards H7399 over all the substance H4735 and possession H4428 of the king, H1121 and of his sons, H5631 with the officers, H1368 and with the mighty men, H2428 and with all the valiant men, H3389 to Jerusalem.
2 H1732 Then David H4428 the king H6965 [H8799] stood H7272 upon his feet, H559 [H8799] and said, H8085 [H8798] Hear H251 me, my brethren, H5971 and my people: H3824 As for me, I had in my heart H1129 [H8800] to build H1004 an house H4496 of rest H727 for the ark H1285 of the covenant H3068 of the LORD, H1916 H7272 and for the footstool H430 of our God, H3559 [H8689] and had made ready H1129 [H8800] for the building:
3 H430 But God H559 [H8804] said H1129 [H8799] to me, Thou shalt not build H1004 an house H8034 for my name, H376 because thou hast been a man H4421 of war, H8210 [H8804] and hast shed H1818 blood.
4 H3068 However the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel H977 [H8799] chose H1004 me before all the house H1 of my father H4428 to be king H3478 over Israel H5769 to the age: H977 [H8804] for he hath chosen H3063 Judah H5057 to be the ruler; H1004 and of the house H3063 of Judah, H1004 the house H1 of my father; H1121 and among the sons H1 of my father H7521 [H8804] he took pleasure H4427 [H8687] in me to make me king H3478 over all Israel:
5 H1121 And of all my sons, H3068 (for the LORD H5414 [H8804] hath given H7227 me many H1121 sons, H977 [H8799] ) he hath chosen H8010 Solomon H1121 my son H3427 [H8800] to sit H3678 upon the throne H4438 of the kingdom H3068 of the LORD H3478 over Israel.
6 H559 [H8799] And he said H8010 to me, Solomon H1121 thy son, H1129 [H8799] he shall build H1004 my house H2691 and my courts: H977 [H8804] for I have chosen H1121 him to be my son, H1 and I will be his father.
7 H3559 [H8689] Moreover I will establish H4438 his kingdom H5769 to the age, H2388 [H8799] if he shall be constant H6213 [H8800] to do H4687 my commandments H4941 and my judgments, H3117 as at this day.
8 H5869 Now therefore in the sight H3478 of all Israel H6951 the congregation H3068 of the LORD, H241 and in the audience H430 of our God, H8104 [H8798] keep H1875 [H8798] and seek H4687 for all the commandments H3068 of the LORD H430 your God: H3423 [H8799] that ye may possess H2896 this good H776 land, H5157 [H8689] and leave it for an inheritance H1121 for your children H310 after H5704 you for H5769 ever.
9 H8010 And thou, Solomon H1121 my son, H3045 [H8798] know H430 thou the God H1 of thy father, H5647 [H8798] and serve H8003 him with a perfect H3820 heart H2655 and with a willing H5315 mind: H3068 for the LORD H1875 [H8802] searcheth H3824 all hearts, H995 [H8688] and understandeth H3336 all the imaginations H4284 of the thoughts: H1875 [H8799] if thou shalt seek H4672 [H8735] him, he will be found H5800 [H8799] of thee; but if thou shalt forsake H2186 [H8686] him, he will cast thee off H5703 for ever.
10 H7200 [H8798] Take heed H3068 now; for the LORD H977 [H8804] hath chosen H1129 [H8800] thee to build H1004 an house H4720 for the sanctuary: H2388 [H8798] be strong, H6213 [H8798] and do it.
11 H1732 Then David H5414 [H8799] gave H8010 to Solomon H1121 his son H8403 the pattern H197 of the porch, H1004 and of the houses H1597 of it, and of its treasuries, H5944 and of its upper chambers, H6442 and of its inner H2315 parlours H1004 and of the place H3727 of the atonement cover,
12 H8403 And the pattern H7307 of all that he had by the spirit, H2691 of the courts H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD, H5439 and of all the surrounding H3957 chambers, H214 of the treasuries H1004 of the house H430 of God, H214 and of the treasuries H6944 of the dedicated things:
13 H4256 Also for the courses H3548 of the priests H3881 and the Levites, H4399 and for all the work H5656 of the service H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD, H3627 and for all the vessels H5656 of service H1004 in the house H3068 of the LORD.
14 H2091 He gave of gold H4948 by weight H2091 for things of gold, H3627 for all instruments H5656 of all manner of service; H3627 silver also for all instruments H3701 of silver H4948 by weight, H3627 for all instruments H5656 of every kind of service:
15 H4948 Even the weight H4501 for the lampstands H2091 of gold, H5216 and for their lamps H2091 of gold, H4948 by weight H4501 for every lampstand, H5216 and for its lamps: H4501 and for the lampstands H3701 of silver H4948 by weight, H4501 both for the lampstand, H5216 and also for its lamps, H5656 according to the use H4501 of every lampstand.
16 H4948 And by weight H2091 he gave gold H7979 for the tables H4635 of showbread, H7979 for every table; H3701 and likewise silver H7979 for the tables H3701 of silver:
17 H2889 Also pure H2091 gold H4207 for the fleshhooks, H4219 and the bowls, H7184 and the cups: H2091 and for the golden H3713 basins H4948 he gave gold by weight H3713 for every basin; H4948 and likewise silver by weight H3713 for every basin H3701 of silver:
18 H4196 And for the altar H7004 of incense H2212 [H8794] refined H2091 gold H4948 by weight; H2091 and gold H8403 for the pattern H4818 of the chariot H3742 of the cherubim, H6566 [H8802] that spread out H5526 [H8802] their wings, and covered H727 the ark H1285 of the covenant H3068 of the LORD.
19 H3068 All this, said David, the LORD H7919 [H8689] made me understand H3791 in writing H3027 by his hand H4399 upon me, even all the works H8403 of this pattern.
20 H1732 And David H559 [H8799] said H8010 to Solomon H1121 his son, H2388 [H8798] Be strong H553 [H8798] and of good courage, H6213 [H8798] and do H3372 [H8799] it: fear H2865 [H8735] not, nor be dismayed: H3068 for the LORD H430 God, H430 even my God, H7503 [H8686] will be with thee; he will not fail H5800 [H8799] thee, nor forsake H3615 [H8800] thee, until thou hast finished H4399 all the work H5656 for the service H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD.
21 H4256 And, behold, the courses H3548 of the priests H3881 and the Levites, H5656 even they shall be with thee for all the service H1004 of the house H430 of God: H4399 and there shall be with thee for all manner of workmanship H5081 every willing H2451 skilful man, H5656 for any manner of service: H8269 also the princes H5971 and all the people H1697 will be wholly at thy command.
