The words of King David to his son Solomon,
upon building the Lord's Temple:
"Now my son, the LORD be with you, that you may succeed...
as He has spoken concerning you.
Only, may the LORD grant you discretion and understanding...
that you may keep the law of the LORD your God.
Then you will prosper
if you are careful to observe the statutes and the rules
that the LORD commanded Moses for Israel.
Be strong and courageous.
Fear not; do not be dismayed.
With great pains I have provided...
To these you must add.
Arise and work! The LORD be with you!
Is not the LORD your God with you?
And has He not given you peace on every side?
For He has delivered the inhabitants of the land into my hand,
and the land is subdued before the LORD and His people.
Now set your mind and heart to seek the LORD your God.
Arise and build the sanctuary of the LORD God,
so that the ark of the covenant of the LORD and the holy vessels of God
may be brought into a house built for the name of the LORD."
(From First Chronicles, chapter 22)
