1 Chronicles 28:5-6; 1 Chronicles 28:10
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.
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.
So take this seriously. The LORD has chosen you to build a Temple as his sanctuary. Be strong, and do the work.”
