1 tn Heb “saying.”

2 tn Heb “to build a house for my name to be there.”

sn To build a temple in which to live (Heb “to build a house for my name to be there”). In the OT, the word “name” sometimes refers to one’s reputation or honor. The “name” of the Lord sometimes designates the Lord himself, being indistinguishable from the proper name.

3 tn Heb “his word that he spoke.”

4 tn Heb “name.”

5 tn Heb “so your eyes might be open toward this house night and day, toward the place about which you said, ‘My name will be there.’”

6 tn Heb “by listening to the prayer which your servant is praying concerning this place.”
