1 Chronicles 28:3-6

28:3 But God said to me, ‘You must not build a temple to honor me, 1  for you are a warrior and have spilled blood.’ 28:4 The Lord God of Israel chose me out of my father’s entire family to become king over Israel and have a permanent dynasty. 2  Indeed, 3  he chose Judah as leader, and my father’s family within Judah, and then he picked me out from among my father’s sons and made me king over all Israel. 4  28:5 From all the many sons the Lord has given me, he chose Solomon my son to rule on his behalf over Israel. 5  28:6 He said to me, ‘Solomon your son is the one who will build my temple and my courts, for I have chosen him to become my son and I will become his father.
