5 And from among my sons—for the LORD has given me many—he chose Solomon to succeed me on the throne of Israel and to rule over the LORD ’s kingdom. 6 He said to me, ‘Your son Solomon will build my Temple and its courtyards, for I have chosen him as my son, and I will be his father.
10 So take this seriously. The LORD has chosen you to build a Temple as his sanctuary. Be strong, and do the work.”
