2 Chronicles 6:7-9

Context
6:7 Now my father David had a strong desire to build a temple to honor the Lord God of Israel. 1  6:8 The Lord told my father David, ‘It is right for you to have a strong desire to build a temple to honor me. 2  6:9 But you will not build the temple; your very own son will build the temple for my honor.’ 3 

1 tn Heb “and it was with the heart of David my father to build a house for the name of the Lord God of Israel.”

sn On the significance of the Lord’s “name,” see the note on the word “live” in v. 5.

2 tn Heb “Because it was with your heart to build a house for my name, you did well that it was with your heart.”

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