And now, son Solomon, know the God of thy fathers, and serve him with a perfect heart and willing soul: for the Lord searches all hearts, and knows every thought: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou shouldest forsake him, he will forsake thee for ever.
See now, for the Lord has chosen thee to build him a house for a sanctuary, be strong and do .
And David gave Solomon his son the plan of the temple, and its buildings, and its treasuries, and its upper chambers, and the inner store-rooms, and the place of the atonement,
and the plan which he had in his mind of the courts of the house of the Lord, and of all the chambers round about, for the treasuries of the house of God, and of the treasuries of the holy things, and of the chambers for resting:
and of the courses of the priests and Levites, for all the work of the service of the house of the Lord, and of the stores of vessels for ministration of the service of the house of the Lord.
And the account of their weight, both of gold and silver .
He gave him the weight of the candlesticks, and of the lamps.
He gave him likewise the weight of the tables of shewbread, of each table of gold, and likewise of the silver:
also of the flesh-hooks, and vessels for drink-offering, and golden bowls: and the weight of the gold and silver , and censers, bowls, according to the weight of each.
And he shewed him the weight of the altar of incense, of pure gold, and the plan of the chariot of the cherubs that spread out their wings, and overshadowed the ark of the covenant of the Lord.
David gave all to Solomon in the Lord's handwriting, according to the knowledge given him of the work of the pattern.
And David said to Solomon his son, Be strong, and play the man, and do: fear not, neither be terrified; for the Lord my God with thee; he will not forsake thee, and will not fail thee, until thou hast finished all the work of the service of the house of the Lord. And behold the pattern of the temple, even his house, and its treasury, and the upper chambers, and the inner store-rooms, and the place of propitiation, and the plan of the house of the Lord.
And see, the courses of the priests and Levites for all the service of the house of the Lord, and with thee for every workmanship, and every one of ready skill in every art: also the chief men and all the people, for all thy commands.
