Todays reading is currently at:
The First Book of Chronicles Chapter 22:1-10

1 Then David said: This is the house of God, and this is the altar for the holocaust of Israel. 2 And he commanded to gather together all the proselytes of the land of Israel, and out of them he appointed stonecutters to hew stones and polish them, to build the house of God. 3 And David prepared in abundance iron for the nails of the gates, and for the closures and joinings: and of brass an immense weight. 4 And the cedar trees were without number, which the Sidonians, and Tyrians brought to David. 5 And David said: Solomon my son is very young and tender, and the house which I would have to be built to the Lord, must be such as to be renowned in all countries: therefore I will prepare him necessaries. And therefore before his death he prepared all the charges.

6 And he called for Solomon his son: and commanded him to build a house to the Lord the God of Israel. 7 And David said to Solomon: My son, it was my desire to have built a house to the name of the Lord my God. 8 But the word of the Lord came to me, saying: Thou hast shed much blood, and fought many battles, so thou canst not build a house to my name, after shedding so much blood before me: 9 The son, that shall be born to thee, shall be a most quiet man: for I will make him rest from all his enemies round about: and therefore he shall be called Peaceable: and I will give peace and quietness to Israel all his days. 10 He shall build a house to my name, and he shall be a son to me, and I will be a father to him: and I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel for ever.
