Bible: Acts 7:44-50

7:44 Our ancestors 1  had the tabernacle 2  of testimony in the wilderness, 3  just as God 4  who spoke to Moses ordered him 5  to make it according to the design he had seen. 7:45 Our 6  ancestors 7  received possession of it and brought it in with Joshua when they dispossessed the nations that God drove out before our ancestors, 8  until the time 9  of David. 7:46 He 10  found favor 11  with 12  God and asked that he could 13  find a dwelling place 14  for the house 15  of Jacob. 7:47 But Solomon built a house 16  for him. 7:48 Yet the Most High 17  does not live in houses made by human hands, 18  as the prophet says,

7:49Heaven is my throne,

and earth is the footstool for my feet.

What kind of house will you build for me, says the Lord,

or what is my resting place? 19 

7:50 Did my hand 20  not make all these things? 21
