1 Then David said, “aThis is the house of the LORD God, and this is the altar of burnt offering for Israel.”

[1] a1Ch 21:18-28; 2Ch 3:1

2 ¶ So David Igave orders to gather athe foreigners who were in the land of Israel, and bhe set stonecutters to hew out stones to build the house of God. 3 David aprepared large quantities of iron Ito make the nails for the doors of the gates and for the clamps, and more bbronze than could be weighed; 4 and timbers of cedar logs beyond number, for athe Sidonians and Tyrians brought large quantities of cedar timber to David. 5 David said, “My son aSolomon is young and inexperienced, and the house that is to be built for the LORD shall be exceedingly magnificent, famous and glorious throughout all lands. [Therefore] now I will make preparation for it.” So David made ample preparations before his death.

Solomon Charged with the Task

6 ¶ Then ahe called for his son Solomon, and charged him to build a house for the LORD God of Israel. 7 David said to Solomon, “aMy son, II had intended to build a house to the name of the LORD my God. 8 But the word of the LORD came to me, saying, ‘aYou have shed much blood and have Iwaged great wars; you shall not build a house to My name, because you have shed [so] much blood on the earth before Me. 9 Behold, a son will be born to you, who shall be a man of rest; and aI will give him rest from all his enemies on every side; for bhis name shall be ISolomon, and I will give peace and quiet to Israel in his days. 10 aHe shall build a house for My name, and he shall be My son and I will be his father; and I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever.’ 11 Now, my son, athe LORD be with you that you may be successful, and build the house of the LORD your God just as He has spoken concerning you. 12 aOnly the LORD give you discretion and understanding, and give you charge over Israel, so that you may bkeep the law of the LORD your God. 13 aThen you will prosper, if you are careful to observe the statutes and the ordinances which the LORD commanded Moses concerning Israel. bBe strong and courageous, do not fear nor be dismayed. 14 Now behold, Iwith great pains I have prepared for the house of the LORD a100,000 talents of gold and 1,000,000 talents of silver, and bbronze and iron beyond weight, for IIthey are in great quantity; also timber and stone I have prepared, and you may add to them. 15 Moreover, there are many workmen with you, stonecutters and masons of stone and carpenters, and all men who are skillful in every kind of work. 16 Of the gold, the silver and the bronze and the iron there is no limit. Arise and work, and may athe LORD be with you.”

David, foreknowing the place of the Temple, prepareth abundance for the building of it.

1 ¶ Then David said, This [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 the 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 without weight; 4 Also cedar trees in abundance: for the Zidonians and they of Tyre brought much cedar wood to David. 5 And David said, Solomon 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.

He instucteth Solomon in God's promises, and his duty in building the Temple.

6 ¶ Then he called for Solomon his son, and charged him to build an house for the LORD God of Israel. 7 And David said to Solomon, My son, as for me, it was in my mind to build an house unto the name of the LORD my God: 8 But the word of the LORD came to me, saying, Thou hast shed blood abundantly, and hast made great wars: thou shalt not build an house unto my name, because thou hast shed much blood upon the earth in my sight. 9 Behold, a son shall be born to thee, who shall be a man of rest; and I will give him rest from all his enemies round about: for his name shall be Solomon, and I will give peace and quietness unto Israel in his days. 10 He shall build an house for my name; and he 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, the 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 give thee wisdom and understanding, and give thee charge concerning Israel, that thou mayest keep the law of the LORD thy God. 13 Then shalt thou prosper, if thou takest heed to fulfil the statutes and judgments which the LORD charged Moses with concerning Israel: be strong, and of good courage; dread not, nor be dismayed. 14 Now, behold, 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 without weight; for it is in abundance: timber also and stone have I prepared; and thou mayest add thereto. 15 Moreover [there are] workmen with thee in abundance, hewers and workers of stone and timber, and all manner of cunning men for every manner of work. 16 Of the gold, the silver, and the brass, and the iron, [there is] no number. Arise [therefore], and be doing, and the LORD be with thee.

He chargeth the princes to assist his son.

17 ¶ David also commanded all the princes of Israel to help Solomon his son, [saying], 18 [Is] not the LORD your God with you? and 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 bring the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and the holy vessels of God, into the house that is to be built to the name of the LORD.
