1 Kings 8:24 In-Context

22 Before the entire congregation of Israel, Solomon took a position before the Altar, spread his hands out before heaven,
23 and prayed,
24 You kept your word to David my father, your personal word. You did exactly what you promised - every detail. The proof is before us today!
25 Keep it up, God, O God of Israel! Continue to keep the promises you made to David my father when you said, "You'll always have a descendant to represent my rule on Israel's throne, on the condition that your sons are as careful to live obediently in my presence as you have."
26 God of Israel, let this all happen; confirm and establish it!
