David’s Address about the Temple
1 Now aDavid° assembled° at Jerusalem° all° the officials° of Israel°, the princes° of the tribes°, and the commanders° of the divisions° that served° the king°, and the commanders° of thousands°, and the commanders° of hundreds°, and the overseers° of all° the property° and livestock° belonging to the king° and his sons°, with the officials° and bthe mighty° men°, even all° the valiant° men°. 2 Then King° David° rose° to his feet° and said°, “Listen° to me, my brethren° and my people°; I a[had] Iintended° to build° a IIpermanent° home° for the ark° of the covenant° of the LORD° and for bthe footstool°° of our God°. So I had made° preparations° to build° [it]. 3 But God° said° to me, ‘aYou shall not build° a house° for My name° because° you are a man° of war° and have shed° blood°.’ 4 Yet, the LORD°, the God° of Israel°, achose° me from all° the house° of my father° to be king° over° Israel° bforever°. For cHe has chosen° Judah° to be a leader°; and din the house° of Judah°, my father’s° house°, and among the sons° of my father° He took° pleasure° in me to make° [me] king° over° all° Israel°. 5 aOf all° my sons° (for the LORD° has given° me many° sons°), bHe has chosen° my son° Solomon° to sit° on the throne° of the kingdom° of the LORD° over° Israel°. 6 He said° to me, ‘Your son° aSolomon° is the one who° shall build° My house° and My courts°; for I have chosen° him to be a son° to Me, and I will be a father° to him. 7 I will establish° his kingdom° forever°° aif° he resolutely° performs° My commandments° and My ordinances°, as Iis done now°.’ 8 So now°, in the sight° of all° Israel°, the assembly° of the LORD°, and in the hearing° of our God°, observe° and seek° after° all° the commandments° of the LORD° your God° so° that you may possess° the good° land° and bequeath° [it] to your sons° after° you forever°°.

David, in a solemn assembly, having declared God's favour to him, and promise to his son Solomon, exhorteth them to fear God.
1 ¶ And Davidº assembledºª² all² the princesº of Israel,º the princesº of the tribes,º and the captainsº of the companiesº that ministeredºª² to the kingº by course,¹ and the captainsº over the thousands,º and captainsº over the hundreds,º and the stewardsº over all² the substanceº and possessionº of the king,º and of his sons,º with² the officers,º and with the mighty men,º and with all² the valiant² men,¹² unto² Jerusalem.º 2 Then Davidº the kingº stood upºª upon² his feet,º and said,ºª Hearºª me, my brethren,º and my people:º [As for me], I² [had] in² mine heartº to buildºª an houseº of restº for the arkº of the covenantº of the LORD,º and for the footstoolºº of our God,º and had made readyºª for the building:ºª 3 But Godº saidºª unto me, Thou shalt not² buildºª an houseº for my name,º because² thou² [hast been] a manº of war,º and hast shedºª blood.º 4 Howbeit the LORDº Godº of Israelº choseºª me before all²² the houseº of my fatherº to be² kingº over² Israelº for ever:º for² he hath chosenºª Judahº [to be] the ruler;º and of the houseº of Judah,º the houseº of my father;º and among the sonsº of my fatherº he likedºª me to make [me] kingºª over² all² Israel:º 5 And of all²² my sons,º (for² the LORDº hath givenºª me manyº sons,)º he hath chosenºª Solomonº my sonº to sitºª upon² the throneº of the kingdomº of the LORDº over² Israel.º 6 And he saidºª unto me, Solomonº thy son,º he² shall buildºª my houseº and my courts:º for² I have chosenºª him [to be] my son,º and I² will be² his father.º 7 Moreover I will establishºª² his kingdomº for ever,º² if² he be constantºª to doºª my commandmentsº and my judgments,º as at this² day.º 8 Now² therefore in the sightº of all² Israelº the congregationº of the LORD,º and in the audienceº of our God,º keepºª and seekºª for all² the commandmentsº of the LORDº your God:º that² ye may possessºª² this goodº land,º and leave [it] for an inheritanceºª for your childrenº afterº you for¹ ever.º²
