Solomon Ordained The Third King
David ordained that his son Solomon become the next king.
He then gave Solomon the plans for the Temple and said:
1 Chr 28:9-11 "As for you, my son Solomon, know the God of
your father, and serve Him with a loyal heart and with a
willing mind; for the LORD searches all hearts and
understands all the intent of the thoughts. If you seek
Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He
will cast you off forever. "Consider now, for the LORD has
chosen you to build a house for the sanctuary; be strong,
and do it."
