First Chronicles 22

22:1 Then David said, This [is] the house of the LORD God, and
 this [is] the altar of the burnt-offering for Israel.
22:2 And David commanded to assemble the strangers that [were]
 in the land of Israel; and he set masons to hew wrought stones
 to build the house of God.
22:3 And David prepared iron in abundance for the nails for the
 doors of the gates, and for the joinings; and brass in
 abundance without weight;
22:4 Also cedar trees in abundance: for the Zidonians and they
 of Tyre brought much cedar wood to David.
22:5 And David said, Solomon my son [is] young and tender, and
 the house [that is] to be built for the LORD [must be] very
 magnificent, of fame and of glory throughout all countries: I
 will [therefore] now make preparation for it. So David made
 abundant preparation before his death.
22:6 Then he called for Solomon his son, and charged him to
 build a house for the LORD God of Israel.
22:7 And David said to Solomon, My son, as for me, it was in my
 mind to build a house to the name of the LORD my God:
22:8 But the word of the LORD came to me, saying, Thou hast shed
 blood abundantly, and hast made great wars: thou shalt not
 build a house to my name, because thou hast shed much blood
 upon the earth in my sight.
22:9 Behold, a son shall be born to thee, who shall be a man of
 rest; and I will give him rest from all his enemies around: for
 his name shall be Solomon, and I will give peace and quietness
 to Israel in his days.
22:10 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 for ever.
22:11 Now, my son, the LORD be with thee; and prosper thou, and
 build the house of the LORD thy God, as he hath said of thee.
22:12 Only the LORD give thee wisdom and understanding, and give
 thee charge concerning Israel, that thou mayest keep the law of
 the LORD thy God.
22:13 Then shalt thou prosper, if thou shalt take heed to
 fulfill the statutes and judgments which the LORD charged Moses
 with concerning Israel: be strong, and of good courage; dread
 not, nor be dismayed.
22:14 Now behold, in my trouble I have prepared for the house of
 the LORD a hundred thousand talents of gold, and a thousand
 thousand talents of silver; and of brass and iron without
 weight; for it is in abundance: timber also and stone have I
 prepared; and thou mayest add to them.
22:15 Moreover, [there are] workmen with thee in great numbers,
 hewers and workers of stone and timber, and all manner of
 skillful men for every manner of work.
22:16 Of the gold, the silver, and the brass, and the iron,
 [there is] no number. Arise [therefore], and be doing, and the
 LORD be with thee.
22:17 David also commanded all the princes of Israel to help
 Solomon his son, [saying],
22:18 [Is] not the LORD your God with you? and hath he [not]
 given you rest on every side? for he hath given the inhabitants
 of the land into my hand; and the land is subdued before the
 LORD, and before his people.
22:19 Now set your heart and your soul to seek the LORD your
 God; arise, therefore, and build ye the sanctuary of the LORD
 God, to bring the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and the holy
 vessels of God, into the house that is to be built to the name
 of the LORD.
