First Chronicles 28

28:1 And David assembled all the princes of Israel, the princes
 of the tribes, and the captains of the companies that
 ministered to the king by course, and the captains over the
 thousands, and captains over the hundreds, and the stewards
 over all the substance and possession of the king, and of his
 sons, with the officers, and with the mighty men, and with all
 the valiant men to Jerusalem.
28:2 Then David the king stood upon his feet, and said, Hear me,
 my brethren, and my people: [As for me], I [had] in my heart to
 build a house of rest for the ark of the covenant of the LORD,
 and for the footstool of our God, and had made ready for the
28:3 But God said to me, Thou shalt not build a house for my
 name, because thou [hast been] a man of war, and hast shed
28:4 However the LORD God of Israel chose me before all the
 house of my father to be king over Israel for ever: for he hath
 chosen Judah [to be] the ruler; and of the house of Judah, the
 house of my father; and among the sons of my father he approved
 me to make [me] king over all Israel:
28:5 And of all my sons, (for the LORD hath given me many sons,)
 he hath chosen Solomon my son to sit upon the throne of the
 kingdom of the LORD over Israel.
28:6 And he said to me, Solomon thy son, he shall build my house
 and my courts: for I have chosen him [to be] my son, and I will
 be his father.
28:7 Moreover I will establish his kingdom for ever, if he shall
 be constant to do my commandments and my judgments, as at this
28:8 Now therefore in the sight of all Israel the congregation
 of the LORD, and in the audience of our God, keep and seek for
 all the commandments of the LORD your God: that ye may possess
 this good land, and leave [it] for an inheritance for your
 children after you for ever.
28:9 And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father,
 and serve him with a perfect heart, and with a willing mind:
 for the LORD searcheth all hearts and understandeth all the
 imaginations of the thoughts: if thou shalt seek him, he will
 be found of thee; but if thou shalt forsake him, he will cast
 thee off for ever.
28:10 Take heed now; for the LORD hath chosen thee to build a
 house for the sanctuary: be strong, and do [it].
28:11 Then David gave to Solomon his son the pattern of the
 porch, and of the houses of it, and of its treasuries, and of
 its upper chambers, and of its inner parlors, and of the place
 of the mercy-seat,
28:12 And the pattern of all that he had by the spirit, of the
 courts of the house of the LORD, and of all the chambers
 around, of the treasuries of the house of God, and of the
 treasuries of the dedicated things:
28:13 Also for the courses of the priests and the Levites, and
 for all the work of the service of the house of the LORD, and
 for all the vessels of service in the house of the LORD.
28:14 [He gave] of gold by weight for [things] of gold, for all
 instruments of all manner of service; [silver also] for all
 instruments of silver by weight, for all instruments of every
 kind of service:
28:15 Even the weight for the candlesticks of gold, and for
 their lamps of gold, by weight for every candlestick, and for
 its lamps: and for the candlesticks of silver by weight, [both]
 for the candlestick, and [also] for its lamps, according to the
 use of every candlestick.
28:16 And by weight [he gave] gold for the tables of show-bread,
 for every table; and [likewise] silver for the tables of
28:17 Also pure gold for the flesh-hooks, and the bowls, and the
 cups: and for the golden basins [he gave gold] by weight for
 every basin; and [likewise silver] by weight for every basin of
28:18 And for the altar of incense refined gold by weight; and
 gold for the pattern of the chariot of the cherubim, that
 spread out [their wings], and covered the ark of the covenant
 of the LORD.
28:19 All [this], [said David], the LORD made me understand in
 writing by [his] hand upon me, [even] all the works of this
28:20 And David said to Solomon his son, Be strong, and of good
 courage, and do [it]: fear not, nor be dismayed, for the LORD
 God, [even] my God, [will be] with thee; he will not fail thee,
 nor forsake thee, until thou hast finished all the work for the
 service of the house of the LORD.
28:21 And behold, the courses of the priests and the Levites,
 [even they shall be with thee] for all the service of the house
 of God: and [there shall be] with thee for all manner of
 workmanship every willing skillful man, for any manner of
 service: also the princes and all the people [will be] wholly
 at thy command.
