1 Chronicles 22:1 (King James Version)
Then David said, This is the house of the LORD God, and this is the altar of the burnt offering for Israel.
- This is the house
- David perhaps had some assurance that this was the place on which God designed that His house should be built; and perhaps it was this that induced him to buy not only the threshing-floor, but probably some adjacent ground also, as Calmet supposes, that there might be sufficient room for such a structure.
