29:11 O Lord, you are great, mighty, majestic, magnificent, glorious, and sovereign 1 over all the sky and earth! You have dominion and exalt yourself as the ruler 2 of all. 29:12 You are the source of wealth and honor; 3 you rule over all. You possess strength and might to magnify and give strength to all. 4 29:13 Now, our God, we give thanks to you and praise your majestic name!
29:14 “But who am I and who are my people, that we should be in a position to contribute this much? 5 Indeed, everything comes from you, and we have simply given back to you what is yours. 6 29:15 For we are resident foreigners and nomads in your presence, like all our ancestors; 7 our days are like a shadow on the earth, without security. 8 29:16 O Lord our God, all this wealth, which we have collected to build a temple for you to honor your holy name, comes from you; it all belongs to you.
