1 Chronicles 22
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And David said: “This is the house of LORD JEHOVAH God, and this is the altar of the sacrifices of Israel.”

2And David said to gather all the proselytes who were in the land of Israel, and they shall make of them Stonecutters, and they shall cut stones for the house of LORD JEHOVAH 3And to make some of them Blacksmiths, workers of iron to make axes and hatchets. And David prepared bars of iron, and much brass was there. There was no measure of weight for it. 4And there was no number of the wood boards of cedar, because the Tsurians and the Tsidanians brought wood of cedar, a great abundance to David. 5And David said: “Solomon, my son, is still a little boy, and it is said about him in the book: ‘He shall build a house to LORD JEHOVAH to make it great above fame.’ And for ten thousands and for glory to all cities I shall prepare for him everything that is needed for it from my life.” And David prepared everything that was needed for the house, and he lacked nothing.

6And he called Solomon his son 7And said to him: “You shall build a house for LORD JEHOVAH God, THE LORD of LORDS of Israel 8Because he sent to me by the hand of the Prophet and said to me: “You have shed much blood, and you have done great battles. You shall not build a house for my name, because you have shed much blood on the Earth in my sight. 9But a son who will be begotten to you, he shall be a man of repose, and I shall give rest to him from all his enemies around him, and Solomon shall be his name, and peace and tranquility shall be on all Israel in his days. 10And he will build up a house for my name, and he shall be to me like a son, and I shall be to him like a father, and I shall establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel for the eternity of eternities. 11Also now, my son, LORD JEHOVAH shall be with you and you shall prosper, and you shall build the house of LORD JEHOVAH your God, just as he said to me. 12And he shall give to you wisdom and prophecy, and he shall command you concerning Israel, and you shall keep the laws of LORD JEHOVAH your God, just as he has commanded you, and then you shall prosper. 13And if you will keep and you will do these commandments, and the laws and the judgments, just as LORD JEHOVAH commanded Moshe to teach Israel, then be strong and be valiant, and you shall not fear, neither shall you be shaken. 14And behold, I have prepared for you everything that is needed for the building of the house of LORD JEHOVAH. I have prepared for you a hundred thousand talents of gold. I have prepared for you silver, one million talents in computation, and brass and iron I have prepared for you that has no computation, and none of the sons of men who walk on the Earth know the computation of the limit of its weight in pounds, because it is abundant, and I have prepared for you the wood and the stones, and you shall add to them. 15And I shall multiply the workers of the work, Stonecutters and Stone Masons and Carpenters of wood 16And Gold Smiths and Silver Smiths and Brass Workers and Iron Workers without number; and be strong and work, and LORD JEHOVAH will be for your benefit.

17And David commanded all of the Elders of Israel and said to them: “Help Solomon my son, 18For, behold, LORD JEHOVAH your God is with you and helps you, and he supports you from all of those around you, and behold, he has delivered all the inhabitants of the land before you, and the land will be subdued before LORD JEHOVAH and before his people. 19Also now, prepare your heart and your soul to pray before LORD JEHOVAH your God, and arise and build the Holy Place of LORD JEHOVAH God, and bring there the Ark in which the Covenant of LORD JEHOVAH our God is placed, and the implements of the holiness of LORD JEHOVAH our God, and build up the house, because his name by which we are called is great.
