1 Kings 8:17-20

Context
8:17 Now my father David had a strong desire 1  to build a temple to honor the Lord God of Israel. 2  8:18 The Lord told my father David, ‘It is right for you to have a strong desire to build a temple to honor me. 3  8:19 But you will not build the temple; your very own son will build the temple for my honor.’ 4  8:20 The Lord has kept the promise he made. 5  I have taken my father David’s place and have occupied the throne of Israel, as the Lord promised. I have built this temple for the honor 6  of the Lord God of Israel

1 tn Heb “and it was with the heart of David my father.”

2 tn Heb “to build a house for the name of the Lord God of Israel.” The word “name” in the OT 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 “Because it was with your heart to build a house for my name, you did well that it was with your heart.”

4 tn Heb “your son, the one who came out of your body, he will build the temple for my name.”

5 tn Heb “his word that he spoke.”

6 tn Heb “name.”
