And now, Lord God of Israel, I pray that you will also keep the other promise you made to my father when you told him that there would always be one of his descendants ruling as king of Israel, provided they obeyed you as carefully as he did. 126
So now, O God of Israel, let everything come true that you promised to my father David, your servant.
"But can you, O God, really live on earth? Not even all of heaven is large enough to hold you, so how can this Temple that I have built be large enough? 228
Lord my God, I am your servant. Listen to my prayer, and grant the requests I make to you today.
Watch over this Temple day and night, this place where you have chosen to be worshiped. Hear me when I face this Temple and pray. 3
