Nevertheless thou shalt not build the house, but thy son that shall come forth out of thy loins, he shall build the house unto my name.

1Kings 8:25 Therefore now, LORD God of Israel, keep with your servant David my father that which you promised him, saying, There shall not fail a man in my sight to sit on the throne of Israel.(a prophecy about the endless rule of Christ:.Isaiah 9:7); so that your children take heed to their way, that they walk before me as you have walked before me.

Then hear thou in heaven and forgive the sin of thy people Israel and bring them again unto the land which thou gavest unto their fathers. When heaven is shut up and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; if they pray toward this place and confess thy name and turn from their sin, when thou afflictest them.

1Kings 8:38 What prayer and supplication soever be made by any man, or by all thy people Israel, which shall know every man the plague of his own heart and spread forth his hands toward this house.

1Kings 8:39 Then hear you in heaven your dwelling place and forgive and do and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart you know, for you, even you only, know the hearts of all the children of men;

1Kings 8:54 And it was so, that when Solomon had made an end of praying all this prayer and supplication unto the LORD, he arose from before the altar of the LORD, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to heaven.

1Kings 8:55 And he stood and blessed all the congregation of Israel with a loud voice, saying,

1Kings 8:56 Blessed be the LORD, that has given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised. There has not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant.

1Kings 8:57-61 The LORD our God be with us as he was with our fathers. Let him not leave us, nor forsake us.(Hebrews 13:5). That he may incline our hearts unto him.(your attention on God causes God to respond in your life; what is God?), to walk in all his ways and to keep his commandments, statutes and judgments, which he commanded our fathers. And let these my words, wherewith I have made supplication before the LORD, be nigh unto the LORD our God day and night, that he maintain the cause of his servant and the cause of his people Israel at all times, as the matter shall require. That all the people of the earth may know that the LORD is God and that there is none else. Let your heart therefore be perfect with the LORD our God.(how?), to walk in his statutes and to keep his commandments, as at this day.

And they came to Ophir.(some region famous for its gold.{1Kings 10:11; 22:48; Job 22:24; etc. Josephus has identified it with the Golden Chersonese, i.e., the Malay peninsula}).and fetched from thence gold, four hundred and twenty talents and brought it to king Solomon.
