- 12 Then the LORD appeared to Solomon at night and said to him, "I have heard your prayer and have R135 chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. 13 "If R136 I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, 14 and R137 My people who F75 are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 15 "Now R138 My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer F76 offered in this place. 16 "For now R139 I have chosen and consecrated this house that My name may be there forever, and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually. 17 "As for you, if you walk before Me as your father David walked, even to do according to all that I have commanded you, and will keep My statutes and My ordinances, 18 then I will establish your royal throne as I covenanted with your father David, saying, `You R140 F77 shall not lack a man to be ruler in Israel.' 19 "But R141 if you turn away and forsake My statutes and My commandments which I have set before you, and go and serve other gods and worship them, 20 then R142 I will uproot you from My land which I have given you, F78 and this house which I have consecrated for My name I will cast out of My sight and I will make it a R143 proverb and a byword among all peoples. 21 "As for this house, which was exalted, everyone who passes by it will be astonished and say, `Why R144 has the LORD done thus to this land and to this house?' 22 "And they will say, `Because they R145 forsook the LORD, the God of their fathers who brought them from the land of Egypt, and they adopted other gods and worshiped them and served them; therefore He has brought all this adversity on them.' "
