And now, O LORD, God of Israel, carry out your further promise to your servant David, my father. For you said to him, 'If your descendants guard their behavior as you have done, they will always reign over Israel.'
Now, O God of Israel, fulfill this promise to your servant David, my father.
"But will God really live on earth? Why, even the highest heavens cannot contain you. How much less this Temple I have built!
Listen to my prayer and my request, O LORD my God. Hear the cry and the prayer that your servant is making to you today.
May you watch over this Temple both day and night, this place where you have said you would put your name. May you always hear the prayers I make toward this place.
