I will establish his kingdom 1forever 2if he continues strong in keeping my commandments and my rules, as he is today.'
Now therefore in the sight of all Israel, the assembly of the LORD, and in the hearing of our God, observe and seek out all the commandments of the LORD your God, that you may possess this good land and leave it for an inheritance to your children after you forever.
"And you, Solomon my son, know the God of your father and serve him with a 3whole heart and with a willing mind, 4for the LORD searches all hearts and understands every plan and thought. 5If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will cast you off forever.
Be careful now, for the LORD has chosen you to build a house for the sanctuary; 6be strong and do it."
