Offerings for the Temple

1 Then King David said to the entire assembly, "My son Solomon, whom alone God has chosen, is R419 still young and inexperienced and the work is great; for the R420 temple F327 is not for man, but for the LORD God. 2 "Now with R421 all my ability I have provided for the house of my God the gold for the things of gold, and the silver for the things of silver, and the bronze for the things of bronze, the iron for the things of iron, and wood for the things of wood, onyx stones and inlaid stones, stones of antimony and stones of various colors, and all kinds of precious stones and alabaster in abundance. 3 "Moreover, in my delight in the house of my God, the treasure I have of gold and silver, I give to the house of my God, over and above all that I have already provided for the holy temple, F328 4 namely, 3,000 R422 talents of gold, of the R423 gold of Ophir, and 7,000 talents of refined silver, to overlay the walls of the buildings; F329 5 of gold for the things of gold and of silver for the things of silver, that is, for all the work done F330 by the craftsmen. Who then is willing to F331 consecrate himself this day to the LORD?"

6 Then the R424 rulers of the fathers' households, and the princes of the tribes of Israel, and the commanders of thousands and of hundreds, with the R425 overseers over the king's work, offered willingly; 7 and for the service for the house of God they gave 5,000 talents and 10,000 darics R426 of gold, and 10,000 talents of silver, and 18,000 talents of brass, and 100,000 talents of iron. 8 Whoever F332 possessed precious stones gave them to the treasury of the house of the LORD, in F333 care of Jehiel R427 the Gershonite. 9 Then the people rejoiced because they had offered so willingly, for they made their offering to the LORD with R428 a whole heart, and King David also rejoiced greatly.

David's Prayer

10 So David blessed the LORD in the sight of all the assembly; and David said, "Blessed are You, O LORD God of Israel our father, forever and ever. 11 "Yours, R429 O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth; Yours is the dominion, O LORD, and You exalt Yourself as head over all. 12 "Both R430 riches and honor come from You, and You rule over all, and in R431 Your hand is power and might; and it lies in Your hand to make great and to strengthen everyone. 13 "Now therefore, our God, we thank You, and praise Your glorious name.

14 "But who am I and who are my people that we should be F334 able to offer as generously as this? For all things come from You, and from Your hand we have given You. 15 "For we R432 are sojourners before You, and tenants, as all our fathers were; our R433 days on the earth are like a shadow, and there is no hope. 16 "O LORD our God, all this abundance that we have provided to build You a house for Your holy name, it is from Your hand, and all is Yours. 17 "Since I know, O my God, that You R434 try the heart and delight R435 in uprightness, I, in the integrity of my heart, have willingly offered all these things; so now with joy I have seen Your people, who are present here, make their offerings willingly to You. 18 "O LORD, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, our fathers, preserve this forever in the intentions F335 of the heart of Your people, and direct their heart to You; 19 and give R436 to my son Solomon a perfect heart to keep Your commandments, Your testimonies and Your statutes, and to do them all, and to R437 build the temple, F336 for which I have made provision."

20 Then David said to all the assembly, "Now bless the LORD your God." And all R438 the assembly blessed the LORD, the God of their fathers, and bowed R439 low and did homage to the LORD and to the king.


21 On the next day they R440 made F337 sacrifices to the LORD and offered burnt offerings to the LORD, 1,000 bulls, 1,000 rams and 1,000 lambs, with their drink offerings and sacrifices in abundance for all Israel. 22 So they ate and drank that day before the LORD with great gladness.

Solomon Again Made King

And they made Solomon the son of David king a R441 second time, and they anointed R442 him as ruler for the LORD and Zadok as priest.

23 Then Solomon R443 sat on the throne of the LORD as king instead of David his father; and he prospered, and all Israel obeyed him. 24 All the officials, the mighty men, and also all the sons of King David pledged F338 allegiance to King Solomon. 25 The R444 LORD highly exalted Solomon in the sight of all Israel, and bestowed R445 on him royal majesty which had not been on any king before him in Israel.

26 Now David R446 the son of Jesse reigned over all Israel. 27 The R447 period which he reigned over Israel was forty years; he reigned in Hebron seven years and in F339 Jerusalem thirty-three years.

Death of David

28 Then he died in a R448 ripe F340 old age, full R449 of days, riches and honor; and his son Solomon reigned in his place. 29 Now the acts of King David, from first to last, are written in the chronicles of Samuel R450 the seer, in the chronicles of Nathan R451 the prophet and in the chronicles of Gad R452 the seer, 30 with all his reign, his power, and the circumstances which came on him, on Israel, and on all the kingdoms of the lands.
