22Then David said, "This will be the location for the Temple of the LORD God and the place of the altar for Israel's burnt offerings!"H1732H559H1004H3068H430H4196H5930H3478

Preparations for the Temple

2So David gave orders to call together the foreigners living in Israel, and he assigned them the task of preparing finished stone for building the Temple of God.H1732H559H3664H1616H776H3478H5975H2672H2672H1496H68H1129H1004H430 3David provided large amounts of iron for the nails that would be needed for the doors in the gates and for the clamps, and he gave more bronze than could be weighed.H1732H3559H1270H7230H4548H1817H8179H4226H5178H7230H4948 4He also provided innumerable cedar logs, for the men of Tyre and Sidon had brought vast amounts of cedar to David.H730H6086H369H4557H6722H6876H935H7230H730H6086H1732 5David said, "My son Solomon is still young and inexperienced. And since the Temple to be built for the LORD must be a magnificent structure, famous and glorious throughout the world, I will begin making preparations for it now." So David collected vast amounts of building materials before his death.H1732H559H8010H1121H5288H7390H1004H1129H3068H4605H1431H8034H8597H776H3559H1732H3559H7230H6440H4194 6Then David sent for his son Solomon and instructed him to build a Temple for the LORD, the God of Israel.H7121H8010H1121H6680H1129H1004H3068H430H3478 7"My son, I wanted to build a Temple to honor the name of the LORD my God," David told him.H1732H559H8010H1121H3824H1129H1004H8034H3068H430 8"But the LORD said to me, 'You have killed many men in the battles you have fought. And since you have shed so much blood in my sight, you will not be the one to build a Temple to honor my name.H1697H3068H559H8210H1818H7230H6213H1419H4421H1129H1004H8034H8210H7227H1818H776H6440 9But you will have a son who will be a man of peace. I will give him peace with his enemies in all the surrounding lands. His name will be Solomon, and I will give peace and quiet to Israel during his reign.H1121H3205H376H4496H5117H341H5439H8034H8010H5414H7965H8253H3478H3117 10He is the one who will build a Temple to honor my name. He will be my son, and I will be his father. And I will secure the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever.'H1129H1004H8034H1121H1H3559H3678H4438H3478H5704H5769 11"Now, my son, may the LORD be with you and give you success as you follow his directions in building the Temple of the LORD your God.H1121H3068H6743H1129H1004H3068H430H1696 12And may the LORD give you wisdom and understanding, that you may obey the Law of the LORD your God as you rule over Israel.H3068H5414H7922H998H6680H3478H8104H8451H3068H430 13For you will be successful if you carefully obey the decrees and regulations that the LORD gave to Israel through Moses. Be strong and courageous; do not be afraid or lose heart!H6743H8104H6213H2706H4941H3068H6680H4872H3478H2388H553H3372H2865 14"I have worked hard to provide materials for building the Temple of the LORD—nearly 4,000 tons of gold, 40,000 tons of silver, and so much iron and bronze that it cannot be weighed. I have also gathered timber and stone for the walls, though you may need to add more.H6040H3559H1004H3068H3967H505H3603H2091H505H505H3603H3701H5178H1270H4948H7230H6086H68H3559H3254 15You have a large number of skilled stonemasons and carpenters and craftsmen of every kind.H6213H4399H7230H2672H2796H68H6086H2450H4399 16You have expert goldsmiths and silversmiths and workers of bronze and iron. Now begin the work, and may the LORD be with you!"H2091H3701H5178H1270H4557H6965H6213H3068 17Then David ordered all the leaders of Israel to assist Solomon in this project.H1732H6680H8269H3478H5826H8010H1121 18"The LORD your God is with you," he declared. "He has given you peace with the surrounding nations. He has handed them over to me, and they are now subject to the LORD and his people.H3068H430H5117H5439H5414H3427H776H3027H776H3533H6440H3068H6440H5971 19Now seek the LORD your God with all your heart and soul. Build the sanctuary of the LORD God so that you can bring the Ark of the LORD's Covenant and the holy vessels of God into the Temple built to honor the LORD's name."H5414H3824H5315H1875H3068H430H6965H1129H4720H3068H430H935H727H1285H3068H6944H3627H430H1004H1129H8034H3068
