(Scripture in Black, My Comments in Purple, Other Comments in Blue)

All Israel makes a liberal offering for the temple David blesses and praises JEHOVAH, and instructs the people Death of David Solomon reigns as king Books of Nathan and Gad mentioned.

1 Furthermore David the king said unto all the congregation,
Solomon my son, whom alone God hath chosen, is yet ayoung and tender,
and the work is great: for the palace is not for man, but for JEHOVAH God.

2 Now I have prepared with all my might for the house of my God
the gold for things to be made of gold, and the silver for things of silver,
and wood for things of wood;
onyx stones, and stones to be set, glistering stones, and of divers colours,
and all manner of precious stones, and marble stones in abundance.

3 Moreover, because I have set my affection to the house of my God,
I have of mine own proper good, of gold and silver,
which I have given to the house of my God,
over and above all that I have prepared for the holy house,

4 Even three thousand talents of gold, of the gold of Ophir,
and seven thousand talents of refined silver,
to overlay the walls of the houses withal:

5 The gold for things of gold, and the silver for things of silver,
and for all manner of work to be made by the hands of artificers.
And who then is willing to consecrate his service this day unto JEHOVAH?

6 Then the chief of the fathers and princes of the tribes of Israel,
and the captains of thousands and of hundreds,
with the rulers of the king's work, offered willingly,

7 And gave for the service of the house of God
of gold five thousand talents and ten thousand drams,
and of silver ten thousand talents,
and of brass eighteen thousand talents,
and one hundred thousand talents of iron.

8 And they with whom precious stones were found
gave them to the treasure of the house of JEHOVAH,
by the hand of Jehiel the Gershonite.

9 Then the people rejoiced, for that they offered willingly,
because with perfect heart they offered willingly to JEHOVAH:
and David the king also rejoiced with great joy.

10 Wherefore David blessed JEHOVAH before all the congregation:
and David said,

Blessed be thou, JEHOVAH God of Israel
Our Father, for ever and ever.

11 Thine, O JEHOVAH, is the greatness,
And the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty:
For all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine;
Thine is the kingdom, O JEHOVAH, and thou art exalted as head above all.

12 Both riches and honour come of thee,
And thou reignest over all;
And in thine hand is power and might;
And in thine hand it is to make great,
And to give strength unto all.

13 Now therefore, our God, we thank thee,
And praise thy glorious name.

14 But who am I, and what is my people,
That we should be able to offer so willingly after this sort?
For all things come of Thee, and of Thine own have we given thee.

15 For we are strangers before thee, and sojourners, As were all our fathers:
Our days on the earth are as a shadow, and there is none abiding.

16 O JEHOVAH our God,
All this store that we have prepared
To build thee an house for thine holy name
Cometh of thine hand, and is all thine own.

17 I know also, my God, that thou triest the heart,
And hast pleasure in uprightness.
As for me, in the uprightness of mine heart
I have willingly offered all these things:
And now have I seen with joy thy people,
Which are present here, to offer willingly unto thee.

18 O JEHOVAH God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, our fathers,
Keep this for ever in the imagination of the thoughts
Of the heart of thy people, and prepare their heart unto thee:

19 And give unto Solomon my son a perfect heart,
To keep thy commandments, thy testimonies, and thy statutes,
And to do all these things, and to build the palace,
For the which I have made provision.

20 And David said to all the congregation,
Now bless JEHOVAH your God.
And all the congregation blessed JEHOVAH God of their fathers,
and bowed down their heads, and worshipped JEHOVAH, and the king.

21 And they sacrificed sacrifices unto JEHOVAH,
and offered burnt offerings unto JEHOVAH,
on the morrow after that day, even a thousand bullocks,
a thousand rams, and a thousand lambs, with their drink offerings,
and sacrifices in abundance for all Israel:

22 And did eat and drink before JEHOVAH on that day
with great gladness.
And they made Solomon the son of David king the second time,
and anointed him unto JEHOVAH to be the chief governor,
and Zadok to be priest.

23 Then Solomon sat on the throne of JEHOVAH as king instead of David his father,
and prospered; and all Israel obeyed him.

24 And all the princes, and the mighty men, and all the sons likewise of king David,
submitted themselves unto Solomon the king.

25 And JEHOVAH magnified Solomon exceedingly in the sight of all Israel,
and bestowed upon him such royal majesty
as had not been on any king before him in Israel.

26 Thus David the son of Jesse reigned over all Israel.

27 And the time that he reigned over Israel was forty years;
seven years reigned he in Hebron,
and thirty and three years reigned he in Jerusalem.

28 And he died in a good old age, full of days, riches, and honour:
and Solomon his son reigned in his stead.

29 Now the acts of David the king, first and last,
behold, they are written in the book of Samuel the seer,
and in the book of Nathan the prophet,
and in the book of Gad the seer,

30 With all his reign and his might, and the times that went over him,
and over Israel, and over all the kingdoms of the countries.
