Solomon Blesses the Lord

12Then spoke Solomon, The LORD said that he would dwell in the thick darkness. 13I have surely built you an house to dwell in, a settled place for you to abide in for ever. 14And the king turned his face about, and blessed all the congregation of Israel: (and all the congregation of Israel stood;) 15And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, which spoke with his mouth to David my father, and has with his hand fulfilled it, saying, 16Since the day that I brought forth my people Israel out of Egypt, I chose no city out of all the tribes of Israel to build an house, that my name might be therein; but I chose David to be over my people Israel. 17And it was in the heart of David my father to build an house for the name of the LORD God of Israel. 18And the LORD said to David my father, Whereas it was in your heart to build an house to my name, you did well that it was in your heart. 19Nevertheless you shall not build the house; but your son that shall come forth out of your loins, he shall build the house to my name. 20And the LORD has performed his word that he spoke, and I am risen up in the room of David my father, and sit on the throne of Israel, as the LORD promised, and have built an house for the name of the LORD God of Israel. 21And I have set there a place for the ark, wherein is the covenant of the LORD, which he made with our fathers, when he brought them out of the land of Egypt.
