11 Thus (A)Solomon finished the house of the Lord and the king’s house; and Solomon successfully accomplished all that came into his heart to make in the house of the Lord and in his own house.

God’s Second Appearance to Solomon(B)

12 Then the Lord (C)appeared to Solomon by night, and said to him: “I have heard your prayer, (D)and have chosen this (E)place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. 13 (F)When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, 14 if My people who are (G)called by My name will (H)humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, (I)then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 15 Now (J)My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place. 16 For now (K)I have chosen and [a]sanctified this house, that My name may be there forever; and [b]My eyes and [c]My heart will be there perpetually. 17 (L)As for you, if you walk before Me as your father David walked, and do according to all that I have commanded you, and if you keep My statutes and My judgments, 18 then I will establish the throne of your kingdom, as I covenanted with David your father, saying, (M)‘You shall not fail to have a man as ruler in Israel.’
