2 Chronicles 6:5-7
New International Version
5 ‘Since the day I brought my people out of Egypt, I have not chosen a city in any tribe of Israel to have a temple built so that my Name might be there, nor have I chosen anyone to be ruler over my people Israel. 6 But now I have chosen Jerusalem(A) for my Name(B) to be there, and I have chosen David(C) to rule my people Israel.’
7 “My father David had it in his heart(D) to build a temple for the Name of the Lord, the God of Israel.
