Hope can set your spirit free.
Concerning Solomon God said
"I will be his Father and he will be my son."

Alive or going to our graves

1When David was dwelling in his house, he said to Nathan
the prophet, "See, I dwell in a house of cedar, but the ark of
the covenant of the Lord is under tent curtains." 3That night
the word of God came to Nathan, saying, 4"Go tell David,
'You shall not build Me a house to dwell in. 5For I have not
dwelt in a house since the time that I brought up Israel, but
have gone from tent to tent. 6Have I ever spoken saying,
"Why have you not built Me a house of cedar?" Furthermore
I tell you that the Lord will build you a house. 11 It shall be,
when your days are fulfilled, that I will set up your seed after
you; and I will establish his kingdom. 12He shall build Me
a house, and I will establish his throne forever. 13 I will be
his Father, and he shall be My son.'"
1After this David attacked the Philistines, and took Gath
and its towns from the hand of the Philistines. 2Then he
defeated Moab, and 3as far as Hamath, as he established
his power by the River Euphrates.
5When the Syrians of Damascus came, David killed
twenty-two thousand of the Syrians, 6and put garrisons in
Syria of Damascus. So the Lord preserved David wherever
he went. 7David took the shields of gold and brought them
to Jerusalem. 8From the cities of Hadadezer, David
brought a large amount of bronze.
9Now when the king of Hamath heard that David had
defeated all the army of Hadadezer, 10he sent his son to
king David, to greet him and bless him; he brought with
him articles of gold, silver, and bronze. 11David dedicated
these to the Lord, along with the silver and gold that he had
brought from all these nations--from Edom, Moab, the
people of Ammon, the Philistines, and Amalek.
12Moreover Abishai the son of Zeruiah killed eighteen
thousand Edomites in the Valley of Salt, 13and put garrisons
in Edom, and all the Edomites became David's servants.
14David reigned over all Israel, and administered judgment
and justice to all his people. 15Joab the son of Zeruiah was
over the army; Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud was recorder;
16Zadok and Abimelech were the priests; Shavsha was the
scribe; 17Benaiah the son of Jehoiada was over the
Cherethites and Pelethites; and David's sons were chief
ministers at the king's side. This Bible passage was condensed from the NKJV
