First Chronicles 29


29:1 Furthermore David the king said to all the congregation,
 Solomon my son, whom alone God hath chosen, [is yet] young and
 tender, and the work [is] great: for the palace [is] not for
 man, but for the LORD God.
29:2 Now I have prepared with all my might for the house of my
 God the gold for [things to he 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, glittering stones, and of
 divers colors, and all manner of precious stones, and marble
 stones in abundance.
29:3 Moreover, because I have set my affection to the house of
 my God, I have of my own possessions, of gold and silver,
 [which] I have given to the house of my God, over and above all
 that I have prepared for the holy house,
29:4 [Even] three thousand talents of gold, of the gold of
 Ophir, and seven thousand talents of refined silver, to overlay
 the walls of the houses:
29:5 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 willing to consecrate his
 service this day to the LORD?
29:6 Then the chief of the fathers and princes of the tribes of
 Israel, and the captains of thousands and of hundreds, with the
 rulers over the king's work, offered willingly,
29:7 And gave 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 thousand talents, and
 one hundred thousand talents of iron.
29:8 And they with whom [precious] stones were found gave [them]
 to the treasure of the house of the LORD, by the hand of Jehiel
 the Gershonite.
29:9 Then the people rejoiced, for that they offered willingly,
 because with perfect heart they offered willingly to the LORD:
 and David the king also rejoiced with great joy.
29:10 Wherefore David blessed the LORD before all the
 congregation: and David said, Blessed [be] thou, LORD God of
 Israel our father, for ever and ever.
29:11 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 on the earth [is thine]; thine [is] the kingdom,
 O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.
29:12 Both riches and honor [come] from thee, and thou reignest
 over all; and in thy hand [is] power and might; and in thy hand
 [it is] to make great, and to give strength to all.
29:13 Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy
 glorious name.
29:14 But who [am] I, and what [is] my people, that we should be
 able to offer so willingly after this sort? for all things
 [come] from thee, and of thy own have we given thee.
29:15 For we [are] strangers before thee, and sojourners, as
 [were] all our fathers: our days on the earth [are] as a
 shadow, and [there is] no abiding.
29:16 O LORD our God, all this store that we have prepared to
 build thee a house for thy holy name [cometh] from thy hand,
 and [is] all thy own.
29:17 I know also, my God, that thou triest the heart, and hast
 pleasure in uprightness. As for me, in the uprightness of my
 heart I have willingly offered all these things: and now have I
 seen with joy thy people, who are present here, to offer
 willingly to thee.
29:18 O LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, our fathers,
 keep this for ever in the imagination of the thoughts of the
 heart of thy people, and prepare their heart to thee:
29:19 And give to Solomon my son a perfect heart, to keep thy
 commandments, thy testimonies, and thy statutes, and to do all
 [these things], and to build the palace, [for] which I have
 made provision.
29:20 And David said to all the congregation, Now bless the LORD
 your God. And all the congregation blessed the LORD God of
 their fathers, and bowed their heads, and worshiped the LORD,
 and the king.
29:21 And they sacrificed sacrifices to the LORD, and offered
 burnt-offerings to 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:
29:22 And ate and drank before the LORD on that day with great
 gladness. And they made Solomon the son of David king the
 second time, and anointed [him] to the LORD [to be] the chief
 governor, and Zadok [to be] priest.
29:23 Then Solomon sat on the throne of the LORD as king instead
 of David his father, and prospered; and all Israel obeyed him.
29:24 And all the princes, and the mighty men, and all the sons
 likewise of king David, submitted themselves to Solomon the
 king.
29:25 And the LORD magnified Solomon exceedingly in the sight of
 all Israel, and bestowed upon him [such] royal majesty as had
 not been on any king before him in Israel.
29:26 Thus David the son of Jesse reigned over all Israel.
29:27 And the time that he reigned over Israel [was] forty
 years; seven years he reigned in Hebron, and thirty and three
 [years] he reigned in Jerusalem.
29:28 And he died in a good old age, full of days, riches, and
 honor: and Solomon his son reigned in his stead.
29:29 Now the acts of David the king, first and last, behold,
 they [are] written in the book of Samuel the seer, and in the
 book of Nathan the prophet, and in the book of Gad the seer,
29:30 With all his reign and his might, and the times that went
 over him, and over Israel, and over all the kingdoms of the
 countries.
