David's Address about the Temple

1 Now David R388 assembled at Jerusalem all the officials of Israel, the princes of the tribes, and the commanders of the divisions that served the king, and the commanders of thousands, and the commanders of hundreds, and the overseers of all the property and livestock belonging to the king and his sons, with the officials and the R389 mighty men, even all the valiant men. 2 Then King David rose to his feet and said, "Listen to me, my brethren and my people; I had R390 intended F320 to build a permanent F321 home for the ark of the covenant of the LORD and for the R391 footstool of our God. So I had made preparations to build it. 3 "But God said to me, `You R392 shall not build a house for My name because you are a man of war and have shed blood.' 4 "Yet, the LORD, the God of Israel, chose R393 me from all the house of my father to be king over Israel forever. R394 For He R395 has chosen Judah to be a leader; and in R396 the house of Judah, my father's house, and among the sons of my father He took pleasure in me to make me king over all Israel. 5 "Of R397 all my sons (for the LORD has given me many sons), He R398 has chosen my son Solomon to sit on the throne of the kingdom of the LORD over Israel. 6 "He said to me, `Your son Solomon R399 is the one who shall build My house and My courts; for I have chosen him to be a son to Me, and I will be a father to him. 7 `I will establish his kingdom forever if R400 he resolutely performs My commandments and My ordinances, as is F322 done now.' 8 "So now, in the sight of all Israel, the assembly of the LORD, and in the hearing of our God, observe and seek after all the commandments of the LORD your God so that you may possess the good land and bequeath it to your sons after you forever.

9 "As for you, my son Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve R401 Him with a F323 whole heart and a willing mind; F324 for R402 the LORD searches all hearts, and understands every intent of the thoughts. If R403 you seek Him, He will let you find Him; but if you forsake Him, He will reject you forever. 10 "Consider now, for the LORD has chosen you to build a house for the sanctuary; be R404 courageous and act."

11 Then David gave to his son Solomon the R405 plan of the R406 porch of the temple, its buildings, its storehouses, its upper rooms, its inner rooms and the R407 room for the mercy seat; 12 and the plan of all that he had in mind, F325 for the courts of the house of the LORD, and for all the surrounding rooms, for the R408 storehouses of the house of God and for the storehouses of the dedicated things; 13 also for the R409 divisions of the priests and the R410 Levites and for all the work of the service of the house of the LORD and for all the utensils of service in the house of the LORD; 14 for the golden utensils, the weight of gold for all utensils for every kind of service; for the silver utensils, the weight of silver for all utensils for every kind of service; 15 and the weight of gold for the golden R411 lampstands and their golden lamps, with the weight of each lampstand and its lamps; and the weight of silver for the silver lampstands, with the weight of each lampstand and its lamps according to the use of each lampstand; 16 and the gold by weight for the tables of showbread, for each table; and silver for the silver tables; 17 and the forks, the basins, and the pitchers of pure gold; and for the golden bowls with the weight for each bowl; and for the silver bowls with the weight for each bowl; 18 and for the R412 altar of incense refined gold by weight; and gold for the model of the chariot, even the R413 cherubim that spread out their wings and covered the ark of the covenant of the LORD.

19 "All this," said David, "the LORD made me understand in writing by His hand upon me, all R414 the details F326 of this pattern."

20 Then David said to his son Solomon, "Be R415 strong and courageous, and act; do not fear nor be dismayed, for the LORD God, my God, is with you. He R416 will not fail you nor forsake you until all the work for the service of the house of the LORD is finished. 21 "Now behold, there R417 are the divisions of the priests and the Levites for all the service of the house of God, and every R418 willing man of any skill will be with you in all the work for all kinds of service. The officials also and all the people will be entirely at your command."
