David's Charge to Solomon

And you, Solomon my son, know the God of your father and serve him with a ywhole heart and with a willing mind, zfor the Lord searches all hearts and understands every plan and thought. aIf you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will cast you off forever.


and he went out to meet Asa and said to him, Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin: zThe Lord is with you while you are with him. aIf you seek him, he will be found by you, bbut if you forsake him, he will forsake you.


17  lI love those who love me,

and mthose who seek me diligently find me.


13 zYou will seek me and find me, when you seek me awith all your heart.


oSeek the Lord while he may be found;

call upon him while he is near;
