What does 1 Kings 5:5 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Kings 5:5

And, behold, I purpose to build an house unto the name of the
Lord my God
For his worship, and for his honour and glory:

as the Lord spake unto David my father;
by the prophet Nathan, ( 2 Samuel 7:12 2 Samuel 7:13 ) ;

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 6:12 Zechariah 6:13 ) .
