RF SA2 7:1 (B.C. 1041.) David Proposes to Build a Temple.
But when the king dwelt in his palace, and the EVER-LIVING had given him peace all round from his enemies,
RF SA2 7:2 then the king said to Nathan the prophet, "See, I now rest in a palace of cedar, but the Ark of GOD remains under curtains."
RF SA2 7:3 When Nathan answered the king, "All that is in your heart, do it, for the EVER-LIVING is with you."
RF SA2 7:4 But in that night the message of the EVER-LIVING came to Nathan, saying,
RF SA2 7:5 "Go and speak to My servant David to say, 'Thus says the EVER-LIVING, Will you build Me a house to dwell in,
RF SA2 7:6 when I have not rested in a house from the days I brought Israel up out of the Mitzeraim to this day, but have marched with a pavilion and tabernacle,
RF SA2 7:7 in which I have travelled with the forces of the Children of Israel? Have I spoken to the one tribe of Israel whom I commanded to shepherd My People Israel, to ask, Why have you not built Me a palace of cedar?'"
RF SA2 7:8 "Consequently now say this to My servant David, Thus says the EVER-LIVING POWER, I took you from following after the sheep to become a Leader over My People Israel,
RF SA2 7:9 and I have been with you wherever you went, and have defeated your enemies before you, and made your name great, like the name of those famous on the earth;
RF SA2 7:10 I have also provided a position for My People Israel and planted them, and they shall rest in it, and never fear, nor shall the sons of Evil again afflict as formerly.
RF SA2 7:11 But from the day when I dictated a Constitution to My People Israel, and gave you rest from all your enemies, did the EVER-LIVING enquire, What house will you make for the LORD?
RF SA2 7:12 Your days, however, shall be completed, and you shall sleep with your fathers, but I will raise an heir after you who shall come from your loins, and I will fix him in your kingship.
RF SA2 7:13 He shall build a house to My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingship for ever!
RF SA2 7:14 I shall be his Father, and he will be My son. He will be a guide to the wandering; and I will cause him to correct men with a staff, and the sons of Adam with a touch,
RF SA2 7:15 and I will never turn my friendship from him, as I turned it from Saul, when I caused it to turn from him to you;
RF SA2 7:16 for your House, and your kingship shall endure for ever. Your throne shall be established for ever.'"
RF SA2 7:17 All these words, and all this vision, Nathan related to David.
RF SA2 7:18 King David consequently went and sat before the EVER-LIVING and said, "Who am I, LORD, my Prince? and who was my father, that You have brought me so far?
RF SA2 7:19 But even this is little in Your sight, SUPREME LORD, for You have promised also to extend the house of Your servant, and to show this to a man, SUPREME LORD.
RF SA2 7:20 So why again should David speak to You further, since You know Your servant, SUPREME LORD?
RF SA2 7:21 For according to Your promise, and Your heart, You have given all this greatness to glorify Your servant.
RF SA2 7:22 Therefore I magnify You, EVER-LIVING GOD, for there is none like You, and there is no GOD except You, from all that we hear with our ears.
RF SA2 7:23 And who are like Your People Israel? A singular nation in the earth, to whom a God comes to instruct it, as a People, and to fix a fame upon it, and to effect for it the mighty works and wonders in Your land, in the presence of Your People, whom You redeemed from the heathen of Mitzeraim and their gods.
RF SA2 7:24 And established the People of Israel for Yourself, as a People for ever. And You are become their EVER-LIVING GOD.
RF SA2 7:25 "And also, EVER-LIVING GOD, the promise You have promised to Your servant, and to his house, to fix it forever,—do what You have promised,
RF SA2 7:26 and he will magnify Your name for ever, proclaiming the EVER-LIVING GOD of Hosts, the GOD over Israel. So let the house of Your servant David, EVER-LIVING, be established before You.
RF SA2 7:27 For You, EVER-LIVING POWER, the GOD of Israel, have opened the ear to Your servant, when he said, I will build You a house;' therefore let Your servant find the heart to pray this prayer to You;
RF SA2 7:28 for You, EVER-LIVING LORD, are the GOD, and Your promises will become true, and also this good promise to Your servant.
RF SA2 7:29 Therefore You have begun to bless the family of Your servant, that it may exist for ever before You;—for You, EVER-LIVING LORD, have promised, and with Your blessing have blessed the family of Your servant for ever."
