David Sacrifices before the Lord - 1st Chronicles 29

1 Chronicles 29:1 Furthermore David the king said unto all the  congregation, Solomon my son, whom alone God hath  chosen, is yet young and tender, and the work is great:  for the palace is not for man, but for the LORD God.  

1 Chronicles 29:2 Now I have prepared with all my might for the  house of my God the gold for things to be made of gold,  and the silver for things of silver, and the brass for things  of brass, the iron for things of iron, and wood for things  of wood; onyx stones, and stones to be set, glistering  stones, and of divers colours, and all manner of precious  stones, and marble stones in abundance. 

1 Chronicles 29:3 Moreover,  because I have set my affection to the house of my God, I  have of mine own proper good, of gold and silver, which I  have given to the house of my God, over and above all that I  have prepared for the holy house, 

1 Chronicles 29:4 Even three  thousand talents of gold, of the gold of Ophir, and seven  thousand talents of refined silver, to overlay the walls of the  houses withal: 

1 Chronicles 29:5 The gold for things of gold, and  the silver for things of silver, and for all manner of work  to be made by the hands of artificers. And who then is  willing to consecrate his service this day unto the LORD?  

1 Chronicles 29:6 Then the chief of the fathers and princes of the  tribes of Israel, and the captains of thousands and of  hundreds, with the rulers of the king’s work, offered  willingly, 

1 Chronicles 29:7 And gave for the service of the house of  God of gold five thousand talents and ten thousand drams,  and of silver ten thousand talents, and of brass eighteen  thousand talents, and one hundred thousand talents of iron.  

1 Chronicles 29:8 And they with whom precious stones were found  gave them to the treasure of the house of the LORD, by  the hand of Jehiel the Gershonite. 

1 Chronicles 29:9 Then the people  rejoiced, for that they offered willingly, because with  perfect heart they offered willingly to the LORD: and David the king also rejoiced with great joy.   

1st Chronicles

1 Chronicles 29:10 Wherefore David blessed the LORD before all  the congregation: and David said, Blessed be thou, LORD  God of Israel our father, for ever and ever. 

1 Chronicles 29:11 Thine,  O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory,  and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the  heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O  LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all. 

1 Chronicles 29:12 Both  riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all;  and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it  is to make great, and to give strength unto all. 

1 Chronicles 29:13  Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy  glorious name. 

1 Chronicles 29:14 But who am I, and what is my  people, that we should be able to offer so willingly after this  sort? for all things come of thee, and of thine own have we  given thee. 

1 Chronicles 29:15 For we are strangers before thee, and  sojourners, as were all our fathers: our days on the earth  are as a shadow, and there is none abiding. 

1 Chronicles 29:16 O  LORD our God, all this store that we have prepared to build  thee an house for thine holy name cometh of thine hand,  and is all thine own. 

1 Chronicles 29:17 I know also, my God, that  thou triest the heart, and hast pleasure in uprightness. As for  me, in the uprightness of mine heart I have willingly offered  all these things: and now have I seen with joy thy people,  which are present here, to offer willingly unto thee. 

1 Chronicles 29:18  O LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, our fathers,  keep this for ever in the imagination of the thoughts of the  heart of thy people, and prepare their heart unto thee:  

1 Chronicles 29:19 And give unto Solomon my son a perfect heart, to  keep thy commandments, thy testimonies, and thy statutes,  and to do all these things, and to build the palace, for the  which I have made provision.  

1 Chronicles 29:20 And David said to all the congregation, Now  bless the LORD your God. And all the congregation blessed  the LORD God of their fathers, and bowed down their  heads, and worshipped the LORD, and the king. 

1 Chronicles 29:21  And they sacrificed sacrifices unto the LORD, and offered  burnt offerings unto the LORD, on the morrow after that  day, even a thousand bullocks, a thousand rams, and a  thousand lambs, with their drink offerings, and sacrifices in  abundance for all Israel: 

1 Chronicles 29:22 And did eat and drink  before the LORD on that day with great gladness. And they  made Solomon the son of David king the second time, and  anointed him unto the LORD to be the chief governor,  and Zadok to be priest. 

1 Chronicles 29:23 Then Solomon sat on the  throne of the LORD as king instead of David his father, and  prospered; and all Israel obeyed him. 

1 Chronicles 29:24 And all the  princes, and the mighty men, and all the sons likewise of  king David, submitted themselves unto Solomon the king.  

1 Chronicles 29:25 And the LORD magnified Solomon exceedingly in  the sight of all Israel, and bestowed upon him such royal  majesty as had not been on any king before him in Israel.  

1 Chronicles 29:26 Thus David the son of Jesse reigned over all  Israel. 

1 Chronicles 29:27 And the time that he reigned over Israel  was forty years; seven years reigned he in Hebron, and  thirty and three years reigned he in Jerusalem. 

1 Chronicles 29:28  And he died in a good old age, full of days, riches, and  honour: and Solomon his son reigned in his stead. 

1 Chronicles 29:29  Now the acts of David the king, first and last, behold, they  are written in the book of Samuel the seer, and in the book  of Nathan the prophet, and in the book of Gad the seer,  

1 Chronicles 29:30 With all his reign and his might, and the times that  went over him, and over Israel, and over all the kingdoms of  the countries.
