1 Chronicles 17:1-6 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Now when David was settled in his palace, he said to Nathan the prophet, "Here I am living in this beautiful cedar palace, but the Ark of the LORD's covenant is out in a tent!" 2 Nathan replied, "Go ahead with what you have in mind, for God is with you." 3 But that same night God said to Nathan, 4 "Go and tell my servant David, 'This is what the LORD says: You are not the one to build me a temple to live in. 5 I have never lived in a temple, from the day I brought the Israelites out of Egypt until now. My home has always been a tent, moving from one place to another. 6 And I never once complained to Israel's leaders, a the shepherds of my people. I have never asked them, 'Why haven't you built me a beautiful cedar temple?'
