The Bible in Its Traditions

1 Kings 5:5


And, behold, I purpose to build a house for the name of YHWH my God, as the YHWH spoke unto David my father, saying: Thy son, whom I will set upon thy throne in thy room, he shall build the house for My name.

For this reason, I intend to build a temple to the name of the Lord my God, just as the Lord spoke to my father David, saying: ‘Your son, whom I will set in your place, upon your throne, he himself shall build a house to my name.’
