1 Chronicles 28
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And David gathered all the Princes of Israel and the Princes of the tribes and Princes of the divisions that minister to the King, and Princes of thousands, and Princes of hundreds, and those who are authorized over cattle, and over domestic animals of the King, and of his sons, the Eunuchs and the Mighty Men of the army, and all of these came to Jerusalem. 2And he said to them: “Hear me, my brothers and my people! I had it in my heart to build a house of rest for the Ark of the Covenant of LORD JEHOVAH and a place of the Shechinah presence of our God, and I prepared everything I had to build the house.” 3And LORD JEHOVAH said to me: “You shall not build a house for my name, because you are a Warrior and because you are a man who has shed much blood. 4And LORD JEHOVAH God of Israel chose me from the entire house of my father that I would be King over Israel forever, because from the house of Yehuda he chose for himself a King, and from the tribe of the house of Yehuda he chose the house of my father, and from the house of my father he chose me to be King over Israel. 5And from all my sons, for they are many sons that LORD JEHOVAH gave to me, he chose Solomon my son to sit on the throne of the kingdom, the high place of Israel. 6And he said to me: ”SOLOMON your son shall build my house and my courts, because I have chosen him that he will be to me a son and I shall be to him a father. 7And I shall establish the throne of his kingdom to eternity, even if he would not choose to keep my commands and my judgments as today 8Also now before the eyes of all Israel, the people of LORD JEHOVAH, and before LORD JEHOVAH our God, keep and seek his commandments, and you shall inherit this land to the eternity of eternities, and you shall give inheritance to your children for the eternity of eternities, and you shall not be destroyed.

9And you, Solomon my son, know everything that LORD JEHOVAH our God commanded us, and serve him with a whole heart and in the desire of your soul without necessity, because LORD JEHOVAH knows all that is in the heart, and everything that the children of men think in their thoughts he understands. If you seek him, he shall be found for you, and if you forsake him, he shall destroy you. 10Know and see that LORD JEHOVAH has chosen you to build a house for the name of the holiness of LORD JEHOVAH. Be strong and be valiant and work!”

11And David gave to Solomon his son the likeness of the porches and the dimensions of the house and of the balcony and of the uppermost chambers and of the inner porticoes and of the outer porticoes, and of the upper chambers and of the lower chambers 12And of the house of treasure, and of the house of the ministry, of the house of LORD JEHOVAH, and of the house of the butchers, and of the house of drinking, and of the house of the lamp lighters. 13The Peshitta lacks this verse. 14The Peshitta lacks this verse. 15The place in which the lampstand of gold was set, and the lamps of gold and their linen wicks and their ornaments and their vessels of oil; David wrote everything and gave to Solomon his son. 16The tables of silver and the tables of gold, dishes of silver and dishes of gold. 17The large spoons and large forks and saucers of silver, and there was no computation for the weight of the gold of these vessels. 18The Peshitta omits this verse.

19The Peshitta omits this verse.

20And David said to Solomon his son: “Be strong and be valiant and work and do not fear and do not be shaken, for The LORD of LORDS is with you; he shall not leave you and he shall not forsake you until you finish building all the work of the house of LORD JEHOVAH. 21And behold, I have authorized the divisions of the Priests and of the Levites over all the works of the house of LORD JEHOVAH, and they are with you and they are authorized over all the works that are necessary for the ministry of the house of LORD JEHOVAH, and behold, I have appointed over them Governors and Leaders that will be required, and they shall do all the works that are necessary.”
