1 Kings 8:33; 1 Kings 8:47; 1 Kings 8:59; 1 Kings 9:3
"When Your people Israel are defeated before an enemy, because they have sinned against You, if they turn to You again and confess Your name and pray and make supplication to You in this house,
if they take thought in the land where they have been taken captive, and repent and make supplication to You in the land of those who have taken them captive, saying, 'We have sinned and have committed iniquity, we have acted wickedly ';
"And may these words of mine, with which I have made supplication before the LORD , be near to the LORD our God day and night, that He may maintain the cause of His servant and the cause of His people Israel, as each day requires,
The LORD said to him, "I have heard your prayer and your supplication, which you have made before Me; I have consecrated this house which you have built by putting My name there forever , and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually .
