1 Chronicles 29:14-18


29:14 “But who am I and who are my people, that we should be in a position to contribute this much? 1  Indeed, everything comes from you, and we have simply given back to you what is yours. 2  29:15 For we are resident foreigners and nomads in your presence, like all our ancestors; 3  our days are like a shadow on the earth, without security. 4  29:16 O Lord our God, all this wealth, which we have collected to build a temple for you to honor your holy name, comes from you; it all belongs to you. 29:17 I know, my God, that you examine thoughts 5  and are pleased with integrity. With pure motives 6  I contribute all this; and now I look with joy as your people who have gathered here contribute to you. 29:18 O Lord God of our ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, maintain the motives of your people and keep them devoted to you. 7
