David's purpose to build a temple, is rewarded by most ample promises: David's thanksgiving.

chapters: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29
171Now when David was dwelling in his house, he said to Nathan the prophet: Behold I dwell in a house of cedar: and the ark of the covenant of the Lord is under skins.cum autem habitaret David in domo sua dixit ad Nathan prophetam ecce ego habito in domo cedrina arca autem foederis Domini sub pellibus est
172And Nathan said to David: Do all that is in thy heart: for God is with thee.et ait Nathan ad David omnia quae in corde tuo sunt fac Deus enim tecum est
173Now that night the word of God came to Nathan, saying:igitur nocte illa factus est sermo Dei ad Nathan dicens
174Go, and speak to David my servant: Thus saith the Lord: Thou shalt not build me a house to dwell in.vade et loquere David servo meo haec dicit Dominus non aedificabis tu mihi domum ad habitandum
175For I have not remained in a house from the time that I brought up Israel, to this day: but I have been always changing places in a tabernacle, and in a tent,neque enim mansi in domo ex eo tempore quo eduxi Israhel usque ad hanc diem sed fui semper mutans loca tabernaculi et in tentorio
176Abiding with all Israel. Did I ever speak to any one, of all the judges of Israel whom I charged to feed my people, saying: Why have you not built me a house of cedar?manens cum omni Israhel numquid locutus sum saltim uni iudicum Israhel quibus praeceperam ut pascerent populum meum et dixi quare non aedificastis mihi domum cedrinam
177Now therefore thus shalt thou say to my servant David: Thus saith the Lord of hosts: I took thee from the pastures, from following the flock, that thou shouldst be ruler of my people Israel.nunc itaque sic loqueris ad servum meum David haec dicit Dominus exercituum ego tuli te cum in pascuis sequereris gregem ut esses dux populi mei Israhel
178And I have been with thee whithersoever thou hast gone: and have slain all thy enemies before thee, and have made thee a name like that of one of the great ones that are renowned in the earth.et fui tecum quocumque perrexisti et interfeci omnes inimicos tuos coram te fecique tibi nomen quasi unius magnorum qui celebrantur in terra
179And I have given a place my people Israel: they shall be planted, and shall dwell therein, and shall be moved no more, neither shall the children of iniquity waste them, as at the beginning,et dedi locum populo meo Israhel plantabitur et habitabit in eo et ultra non commovebitur nec filii iniquitatis adterent eos sicut a principio
1710Since the days that I gave judges to my people Israel, and have humbled all thy enemies. And I declare to thee, that the Lord will build thee a house.ex diebus quibus dedi iudices populo meo Israhel et humiliavi universos inimicos tuos adnuntio ergo tibi quod aedificaturus sit domum tibi Dominus
1711And when thou shalt have ended thy days to go to thy fathers, I will raise up thy seed after thee, which shall be of thy sons: and I will establish his kingdom.cumque impleveris dies tuos ut vadas ad patres tuos suscitabo semen tuum post te quod erit de filiis tuis et stabiliam regnum eius
1712He shall build me a house, and I will establish his throne for ever.ipse aedificabit mihi domum et firmabo solium eius usque in aeternum
1713I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son: and I will not take my mercy away from him, as I took it from him that was before thee.ego ero ei in patrem et ipse erit mihi in filium et misericordiam meam non auferam ab eo sicut abstuli ab eo qui ante te fuit
1714But I will settle him in my house, and in my kingdom for ever: and his throne shall be most firm for ever.et statuam eum in domo mea et in regno meo usque in sempiternum et thronus eius erit firmissimus in perpetuum
1715According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak to David.iuxta omnia verba haec et iuxta universam visionem istam sic locutus est Nathan ad David
1716And king David came and sat before the Lord, and said: Who am I, O Lord God, and what is my house, that thou shouldst give such things to me?cumque venisset rex David et sedisset coram Domino dixit quis ego sum Domine Deus et quae domus mea ut praestares mihi talia
1717But even this hath seemed little in thy sight, and therefore thou hast also spoken concerning the house of thy servant for the time to come: and hast made me remarkable above all men, O Lord God.sed et hoc parum visum est in conspectu tuo ideoque locutus es super domum servi tui etiam in futurum et fecisti me spectabilem super omnes homines Domine Deus meus
1718What can David add more, seeing thou hast thus glorified thy servant, and known him?quid ultra addere potest David cum ita glorificaveris servum tuum et cognoveris eum
1719O Lord, for thy servant's sake, according to thy own heart, thou hast shewn all this magnificence, and wouldst have all the great things to be known.Domine propter famulum tuum iuxta cor tuum fecisti omnem magnificentiam hanc et nota esse voluisti universa magnalia
1720O Lord there is none like thee: and here is no other God beside thee, of all whom we have heard of with our ears.Domine non est similis tui et non est alius deus absque te ex omnibus quos audivimus auribus nostris
1721For what other nation is there upon earth like thy people Israel, whom God went to deliver, and make a people for himself, and by his greatness and terrors cast out nations before their face whom he had delivered out of Egypt?quis autem est alius ut populus tuus Israhel gens una in terra ad quam perrexit Deus ut liberaret et faceret populum sibi et magnitudine sua atque terroribus eiceret nationes a facie eius quem de Aegypto liberarat
1722And thou hast made thy people Israel to be thy own people for ever, and thou, O Lord, art become their God.et posuisti populum tuum Israhel tibi in populum usque in aeternum et tu Domine factus es Deus eius
1723Now therefore, O Lord, let the word which thou hast spoken to thy servant, and concerning his house, be established for ever, and do as thou hast said.nunc igitur Domine sermo quem locutus es famulo tuo et super domum eius confirmetur in perpetuum et fac sicut locutus es
1724And let thy name remain and be magnified for ever: and let it be said: The Lord of hosts is God of Israel, and the house of David his servant remaineth before him.permaneatque et magnificetur nomen tuum usque in sempiternum et dicatur Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel et domus David servi eius permanens coram eo
1725For thou, O Lord my God, hast revealed to the ear of thy servant, that thou wilt build him a house: and therefore thy servant hath found confidence to pray before thee.tu enim Domine Deus meus revelasti auriculam servi tui ut aedificares ei domum et idcirco invenit servus tuus fiduciam ut oret coram te
1726And now O Lord, thou art God: and thou hast promised to thy servant such great benefits.nunc ergo Domine tu es Deus et locutus es ad servum tuum tanta beneficia
1727And thou hast begun to bless the house of thy servant, that it may be always before thee: for seeing thou blessest it, O Lord, it shall be blessed for ever.et coepisti benedicere domui servi tui ut sit semper coram te te enim Domine benedicente benedicta erit in perpetuum
