2 Samuel 7:6, “I have not dwelt in a house since the day I brought the sons of Israel from Egypt until this day. I have been moving about with a tent as my dwelling.” Modern English Version

I read this verse and thought, “God likes to camp!”

We emphasize our house (dwelling) and God emphasizes His people. When David told God he wanted to build Him a house, he was referring to a building. When God told David He wanted to build his house, He was referring to children.

2 Samuel 7:11-13, “. . . The Lord declares to you that He will instead bring about a house for you. When your days are complete and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up after you an offspring from your body, and I will establish his rule. He will build a house for My name, and I will establish his royal throne forever.” Modern English Version
