Therefore now, LORDGod of Israel,keep with thy servantDavid my father that thou promisedst him, saying , There shall not faila thee a man in my sight to sit on the throne of Israel;so that thy children take heed to their way, that they walkbefore me as thou hast walkedbefore me.
And now, O God of Israel, let thy word, I pray thee, be verified , which thou spakest unto thy servantDavid my father.27
But will Godindeeddwell on the earth? behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house that I have builded ?
Yet have thou respect unto the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry and to the prayer, which thy servantprayethbefore thee to day:29
That thine eyes may be open toward this housenight and day, even toward the place of which thou hast said , My name shall be there: that thou mayest hearken unto the prayer which thy servant shall make toward this place.b
