I will establish his kingdom for ever if he continues resolute in keeping my commandments and my ordinances, as he is today.'
Now therefore in the sight of all Israel, the assembly of the LORD, and in the hearing of our God, observe and seek out all the commandments of the LORD your God; that you may possess this good land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children after you for ever.
"And you, Solomon my son, know the God of your father, and serve him with a whole heart and with a willing mind; for the LORD searches all hearts, and understands every plan and thought. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will cast you off for ever.
Take heed now, for the LORD has chosen you to build a house for the sanctuary; be strong, and do it."
