Our Father, for ever and ever

What a wonderful and marvelous passage of Scripture (1 Chronicles 29:10-19). I can see Jesus reading it and then, moved by the Holy Spirit, teaching His followers how to pray… “Father of us in heaven, let sanctified, set apart, unlike any other, be the Name of You, let come the kingdom of You, let be done the will of You, as in heaven, also on earth… for Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory to the ages.”

1 Chronicles 29:10-19:

“10 And David blessed Yahweh before the eyes of all the congregation; and David said, Blessed are You, O Yahweh, the God of Israel, our Father, for ever and ever. 11 To you, O Yahweh, be the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty; for all in the heavens and in the earth belongs to You, O Yahweh; Yours is the kingdom, and You lift up Yourself to all as Head; 12 and the riches, and the honor come from before You, and You rule over all; and in Your hand is power and might; and it is in Your hand to make great, and to give strength to all. 13 And now, our God, we are giving thanks to You, and giving praise to Your glorious name; 14 yea, for who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to offer willingly in this way? For all is of You, and we have given to You out of Your hand; 15 for we are strangers before You, and settlers, like all our fathers; our days on the land are like a shadow, and there is none abiding. 16 O Yahweh our God, all this store that we have prepared to build a house to You, for Your holy name, is out of Your hand, and all is of You. 17 And I know, my God, that You try the heart and are pleased with uprightness; I, in the uprightness of my heart, have offered willingly all these things; and now I have watched with joy Your people who are present here offering willingly to You. 18 O Yahweh, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, our fathers, keep this forever for the intent of the thoughts of the heart of your people, and prepare their heart toward You; 19 and give a perfect heart to my son Solomon, to keep Your commandments, Your testimonies, and Your statutes, and to do all, even to build this magnificent house, for which I have prepared.” (Green’s Literal Translation)
