New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
5 And from among my sons -- for the LORD has given me many children -- he chose Solomon to succeed me on the throne of his kingdom of Israel. 5 Of all my sons--and the LORD has given me many--he has chosen my son Solomon to sit on the throne of the kingdom of the LORD over Israel.
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. 6 He said to me: 'Solomon your son is the one who will build my house and my courts, for I have chosen him to be my son, and I will be his father.
