1 Chronicles 28:5-6; 1 Chronicles 28:10
And then from all my sons - and God gave me many! - he chose my son Solomon to sit on the throne of God's rule over Israel.
He went on to say, 'Your son Solomon will build my house and my courts: I have chosen him to be my royal adopted son; and I will be to him a father.
Look sharp now! God has chosen you to build his holy house. Be brave, determined! And do it!"
