7 'I will establish his kingdom forever * 1if he resolutely performs My commandments and My ordinances, as is done now.'
8 "So now, in the sight of all Israel, the assembly of the LORD, and in the hearing of our God, observe and seek after all the commandments of the LORD your God so that you may possess the good land and bequeath it to your sons after you forever *.
9 "As for you, my son Solomon, know the God of your father, and 2serve Him with a whole heart and a willing mind; 3for the LORD searches all hearts, and understands every intent of the thoughts. 4If you seek Him, He will let you find Him; but if you forsake Him, He will reject you forever.
10 "Consider now, for the LORD has chosen you to build a house for the sanctuary; 5be courageous and act."
