Preparations for the Temple

1And David will say, This house itself of Jehovah God, and this the altar for burnt-offering to Israel.

2And David will say to assemble the strangers which are in the land of Israel; and he will set up hewers of stone to hew out hewn stones to build the house of God. 3And iron for abundance for nails for the doors of the gates, and for the junctions, David prepared; and brass for abundance no weight; 4And cedar woods to no number: for the Zidonians and the Tyrians brought cedar woods for multitude to David. 5And David will say, Solomon my son a youth and tender, and the house to be built for Jehovah to be great for going up for a name and for glory to all the lands: I will now prepare for it. And David will prepare for abundance before his death.

Solomon Anointed to Build the Temple

6And he will call for Solomon his son, and he will command him to build a house to Jehovah God of Israel. 7And David will say to Solomon his son, I, it was with my heart to build a house to the name of Jehovah my God. 8And the word of Jehovah will be upon me, saying, Thou didst pour out blood for abundance, and didst make great wars: thou shalt not build a house for my name, for thou didst pour out many bloods in the earth before me. 9Behold, a son being born to thee, he shall be a man of rest; and I caused rest to him from all his enemies from round about: for Solomon shall be his name, and I will give peace and quiet upon Israel in his days. 10He shall build a house to my name; and he shall be to me for son, and I to him for father; and I prepared the throne of his kingdom over Israel even to forever. 11Now, my son, Jehovah will be with thee; and prosper thou and build the house of Jehovah thy God as he spake concerning thee. 12Surely Jehovah will give to thee wisdom and understanding, and he will command thee concerning Israel, and to watch the law of Jehovah thy God. 13Then thou shalt prosper if thou shalt watch to do the laws and the judgments which Jehovah commanded Moses concerning Israel: be strong and be active; thou shalt not fear and thou shalt not be terrified. 14And behold in my affliction I prepared for the house of Jehovah, gold, a hundred thousand talents, and silver, a thousand thousand talents; and for brass and for iron, no weight; for it was for abundance: and woods and stones I prepared, and upon them thou wilt add. 15And with thee for abundance, they doing the work, hewers and workmen of stone and wood, and all the wise for all the work. 16To gold, to silver, and to brass, and to iron, no number. Arise and do, and Jehovah will be with thee.

17And David will command to all the chiefs of Israel for help to Solomon his son: 18Is not Jehovah your God with you? and he caused rest to you from round about? for he gave into my hand the inhabitants of the land; and the land was subdued before Jehovah, and before his people. 19Now ye shall give your heart and your soul to seek to Jehovah your God; and arise ye and build the holy place of Jehovah God to bring the ark of the covenant of Jehovah and the holy vessels of God, to the house being built to the name of Jehovah.
