2 Samuel 7:1-6 NLT

1 When the King was settled in his palace,
2 David summoned Nathan the prophet. "Look!" David said. "Here I am living in this beautiful cedar palace, but the Ark of God is out in a tent!"
3 Nathan replied, "Go ahead and do what you have in mind, for the LORD is with you."
4 But that same night the LORD said to Nathan,
5 "Go and tell my servant David, 'This is what the LORD says: Are you the one to build me a temple to live in?
6 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.
