Solomon Blesses the People

1 1Then Solomon said, "The LORD has said that he would dwell in thick darkness. 2 But I have built you 2an exalted house, a place for you to dwell in forever." 3 Then the king turned around and blessed all the assembly of Israel, while all the assembly of Israel stood. 4 And he said, "Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, who with his hand has fulfilled what he promised with his mouth to David my father, saying, 5 'Since the day that I brought my people out of the land of Egypt, I chose no city out of all the tribes of Israel in which to build a house, that my name might be there, and I chose no man as prince over my people Israel; 6 3but I have chosen Jerusalem that my name may be there, 4and I have chosen David to be over my people Israel.'
