2 Samuel 7:1-11, 16 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
7 And it came to pass, when the king sat in his house and the Lord had given him rest round about from all his enemies,
2 that the king said unto Nathan the prophet, “See now, I dwell in a house of cedar, but the ark of God dwelleth within curtains.”
3 And Nathan said to the king, “Go, do all that is in thine heart, for the Lord is with thee.”
4 And it came to pass that night that the word of the Lord came unto Nathan, saying,
5 “Go and tell My servant David, ‘Thus saith the Lord: Shalt thou build Me a house for Me to dwell in?
6 For I have not dwelt in any house since the time that I brought up the children of Israel out of Egypt even to this day, but have walked in a tent and in a tabernacle.
7 In all the places wherein I have walked with all the children of Israel, spoke I a word with any of the tribes of Israel, whom I commanded to feed My people Israel, saying, “Why build ye not Me a house of cedar?”’
8 Now therefore, so shalt thou say unto My servant David, ‘Thus saith the Lord of hosts: I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over My people, over Israel.
9 And I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a great name, like unto the name of the great men who are on the earth.
10 Moreover I will appoint a place for My people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as before,
11 and as since the time that I commanded judges to be over My people Israel and have caused thee to rest from all thine enemies. “‘Also the Lord telleth thee that He will make thee a house.
16 And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established forever before thee; thy throne shall be established for ever.’”
