6 Then he called for Solomon his son, and charged him to build an house for the Lord God of Israel. 7 And David said to Solomon, My son, as for me, git was in my mind to build an house hunto the name of the Lord my God: 8 But the word of the Lord came to me, saying, iThou hast shed blood abundantly, and jhast made great wars: thou shalt not build an house unto my name, because thou hast shed much blood upon the earth in my sight. 9 Behold, a son shall be born to thee, who shall be a man of krest; and I will give him rest from all his enemies round about: for his name shall be ||Solomon, and I will give peace and quietness unto Israel in his days. 10 lHe shall build an house for my name; and mhe shall be my son, and I will be his father; and I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel for ever. 11 Now, my son, nthe Lord be with thee; and prosper thou, and build the house of the Lord thy God, as he hath said of thee. 12 Only the Lord ogive thee wisdom and understanding, and give thee charge concerning Israel, that thou mayest keep the law of the Lord thy God. 13 pThen shalt thou prosper, if thou takest heed to fulfil the statutes and judgments which the Lord charged Moses with concerning Israel: qbe strong, and of good courage; rdread not, nor be dismayed. 14 Now, behold, ||in my trouble I have prepared for the house of the Lord an shundred thousand talents of gold, and a thousand thousand talents of silver; and of brass and iron twithout weight; for it is in abundance: timber also and stone have I prepared; and thou mayest add thereto. 15 Moreover there are workmen with thee in abundance, hewers and ||workers of stone and timber, and all manner of cunning men for every manner of work. 16 Of the gold, the silver, and the brass, and the iron, there is uno number. Arise therefore, and be doing, and vthe Lord be with thee.
