The King James Version Bible

2 Chronicles 6:7-9

  1. Now it was in the heart of David my father to build an house for the name of the LORD God of Israel.

  2. But the LORD said to David my father, Forasmuch as it was in thine heart to build an house for my name, thou didst well in that it was in thine heart:

  3. Notwithstanding thou shalt not build the house; but thy son which shall come forth out of thy loins, he shall build the house for my name.
