"Our fathers had the tent of witness in the wilderness, even as he who spoke to Moses directed him to make it, according to the pattern that he had seen.
Our fathers in turn brought it in with Joshua when they dispossessed the nations which God thrust out before our fathers. So it was until the days of David,
who found favor in the sight of God and asked leave to find a habitation for the God of Jacob.
But it was Solomon who built a house for him.
Yet the Most High does not dwell in houses made with hands; as the prophet says,
`Heaven is my throne, and earth my footstool. What house will you build for me, says the Lord, or what is the place of my rest?
Did not my hand make all these things?'
"You stiff-necked people, uncircumcised in heart and ears, you always resist the Holy Spirit. As your fathers did, so do you.
Which of the prophets did not your fathers persecute? And they killed those who announced beforehand the coming of the Righteous One, whom you have now betrayed and murdered,
you who received the law as delivered by angels and did not keep it."
