David's Prayer of Thanksgiving

18Then went king David in, and sat before the LORD, and he said, Who am I, O Lord GOD? and what is my house, that you have brought me till now? 19And this was yet a small thing in your sight, O Lord GOD; but you have spoken also of your servant's house for a great while to come. And is this the manner of man, O Lord GOD? 20And what can David say more to you? for you, Lord GOD, know your servant. 21For your word's sake, and according to your own heart, have you done all these great things, to make your servant know them. 22Why you are great, O LORD God: for there is none like you, neither is there any God beside you, according to all that we have heard with our ears. 23And what one nation in the earth is like your people, even like Israel, whom God went to redeem for a people to himself, and to make him a name, and to do for you great things and terrible, for your land, before your people, which you redeemed to you from Egypt, from the nations and their gods? 24For you have confirmed to yourself your people Israel to be a people to you for ever: and you, LORD, are become their God. 25And now, O LORD God, the word that you have spoken concerning your servant, and concerning his house, establish it for ever, and do as you have said. 26And let your name be magnified for ever, saying, The LORD of hosts is the God over Israel: and let the house of your servant David be established before you. 27For you, O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, have revealed to your servant, saying, I will build you an house: therefore has your servant found in his heart to pray this prayer to you. 28And now, O Lord GOD, you are that God, and your words be true, and you have promised this goodness to your servant: 29Therefore now let it please you to bless the house of your servant, that it may continue for ever before you: for you, O Lord GOD, have spoken it: and with your blessing let the house of your servant be blessed for ever.
