1 Kings 9:3-7
New King James Version
3 And the Lord said to him: (A)“I have heard your prayer and your supplication that you have made before Me; I have consecrated this house which you have built (B)to put My name there forever, (C)and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually. 4 Now if you (D)walk before Me (E)as your father David walked, in integrity of heart and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded you, and if you (F)keep My statutes and My judgments, 5 then I will establish the throne of your kingdom over Israel forever, (G)as I promised David your father, saying, ‘You shall not fail to have a man on the throne of Israel.’ 6 (H)But if you or your sons at all [a]turn from following Me, and do not keep My commandments and My statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods and worship them, 7 (I)then I will [b]cut off Israel from the land which I have given them; and this house which I have consecrated (J)for My name I will cast out of My sight. (K)Israel will be a proverb and a byword among all peoples.Read full chapter
