He shall build a house for My name, and he shall be My son and I will be his Father; and I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever.’
Now, my son, the LORD be with you that you may be successful, and build the house of the LORD your God just as He has spoken concerning you.
Only the LORD give you discretion and understanding, and put you in charge of Israel, so that you may keep the Law of the LORD your God.
Then you will prosper, if you are careful to follow the statutes and the ordinances which the LORD commanded Moses concerning Israel. Be strong and courageous, do not fear nor be dismayed.
Now behold, with great pains I have prepared for the house of the LORD a hundred thousand talents of gold and a million talents of silver, and bronze and iron beyond measure, for they are in great quantity; I have also prepared timber and stone, and you may add to that.
Moreover there are many workmen with you, stonecutters, masons of stone, and carpenters; and all of them
are skillful in every kind of work.
