Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
History - So, now I know where it is.
Again, I would like to emphasize, simple acts of meditation are not so much difficult, as uncomfortable.
God wants you to know how His story happened.
How He created the earth, made his children, and how traditions became interwoven into his family.
12. Then Solomon prayed, "O LORD, you have said that you would live in a thick cloud of darkness.
13. Now I have built a glorious Temple for you, a place where you can live forever!"
14. Then the king turned around to the entire community of Israel standing before him and gave this blessing:
15. "Praise the LORD, the God of Israel, who has kept the promise he made to my father, David. For he told my father,
16. 'From the day I brought my people Israel out of Egypt, I have never chosen a city among any of the tribes of Israel as the place where a Temple should be built to honor my name. But I have chosen David to be king over my people Israel.' "
17. Then Solomon said, "My father, David, wanted to build this Temple to honor the name of the LORD, the God of Israel.
18. But the LORD told him, 'You wanted to build the Temple to honor my name. Your intention is good,
19. but you are not the one to do it. One of your own sons will build the Temple to honor me.'
20. "And now the LORD has fulfilled the promise he made, for I have become king in my father's place, and I now sit on the throne of Israel, just as the LORD promised. I have built this Temple to honor the name of the LORD, the God of Israel.
21. And I have prepared a place there for the Ark, which contains the covenant that the LORD made with our ancestors when he brought them out of Egypt."
