God’s promise to David

When the king was settled in his palace,[a] and the Lord had given him rest from all his surrounding enemies, the king said to the prophet Nathan, “Look! I’m living in a cedar palace, but God’s chest is housed in a tent!”[b]

Nathan said to the king, “Go ahead and do whatever you are thinking, because the Lord is with you.”
