1 Kings 8:66

8:66 all the goodness that the Lord had shown to David his servant and to Israel his people. God graciously fulfilled His commitment to David that one of his offspring would build the temple he had wanted to build (2 Sam. 7:1–16). God also gave Israel a central sanctuary (Deut. 12) and rest from their enemies (1 Kin. 5:4).
