2 that the king said to Nathan the prophet, See now, I dwell in a house of cedar, but the ark of God dwells within curtains.
3 Nathan said to the king, Go, do all that is in your heart; for Yahweh is with you.
4 It happened the same night, that the word of Yahweh came to Nathan, saying,
5 Go and tell my servant David, Thus says Yahweh, Shall you build me a house for me to dwell in?
6 for I have not lived in a house since the day that I brought up the children of Israel out of Egypt, even to this day, but have walked in a tent and in a tent.
