I intend, therefore, to build a temple for the Name of the LORD my God, as the LORD told my father David, when he said, ‘Your son whom I will put on the throne in your place will build the temple for my Name.’
And, behold, I purpose to build an house unto the name of the LORD my God, as the LORD spake unto David my father, saying, Thy son, whom I will set upon thy throne in thy room, he shall build an house unto my name.
So I am planning to build a Temple to honor the name of the LORD my God, just as he had instructed my father, David. For the LORD told him, ‘Your son, whom I will place on your throne, will build the Temple to honor my name.’
saying, thy son whom I will set upon thy throne in thy
room, he shall build an house unto my name;
which was no small encouragement to Solomon to go about this
work; in which he was a type of Christ, the builder of his
temple, the church, see ( Zechariah
6:13 ) .
