|1st Chronicles 28|
King James Bible
Furthermore David the king said4 unto all the congregation, Solomon my son, whom alone God hath chosen,1 [is yet] young and tender, and the work [is] great: for the palace [is] not for man, but for the LORD God.
Now I have prepared52 with all my might for the house of my God the gold for [things to be made] of gold, and the silver for [things] of silver, and the brass for [things] of brass, the iron for [things] of iron, and wood for [things] of wood; onyx stones, and [stones] to be set, glistering stones, and of divers colours, and all manner of precious stones, and marble stones in abundance.
Moreover, because I have set my affection2 to the house of my God, I have of mine own proper good, of gold and silver, [which] I have given1 to the house of my God, over and above all that I have prepared52 for the holy house,
The gold for [things] of gold, and the silver for [things] of silver, and for all manner of work [to be made] by the hands of artificers. And who [then] is willing102 to consecrate15 his service this day unto the LORD?
And gave4 for the service of the house of God of gold five thousand talents and ten thousand drams, and of silver ten thousand talents, and of brass eighteen 7239 thousand talents, and one hundred thousand talents of iron.
Thine, O LORD, [is] the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all [that is] in the heaven and in the earth [is thine]; thine [is] the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted102 5375 102 as head above all.
I know1 also, my God, that thou triest6 the heart, and hast pleasure4 in uprightness. As for me, in the uprightness of mine heart I have willingly offered98 all these things: and now have I seen1 with joy thy people, which are present8 here, to offer willingly99 unto thee.
And give3 unto Solomon my son a perfect heart, to keep2 thy commandments, thy testimonies, and thy statutes, and to do2 all [these things], and to build2 the palace, [for] the which I have made provision.52
And David said4 to all the congregation, Now bless16 the LORD your God. And all the congregation blessed17 the LORD God of their fathers, and bowed down their heads,4 and worshipped101 the LORD, and the king.
And they sacrificed4 sacrifices unto the LORD, and offered55 burnt offerings unto the LORD, on the morrow after that day, [even] a thousand bullocks, a thousand rams, [and] a thousand lambs, with their drink offerings, and sacrifices in abundance for all Israel:
And did eat4 and drink4 before the LORD on that day with great gladness. And they made Solomon the son of David king55 the second time, and anointed4 [him] unto the LORD [to be] the chief governor, and Zadok [to be] priest.
