David Plans to Build the House of G-d

"All this, said he, is put in writing by the hand of the L-rd who instructed me, all the works of this pattern" (Chr. I 28:19). "Now I have prepared with all my might the gold for things to be made of gold, and the silver for things of silver, and the brass for things of brass... " (ibid) 29:2)

King David gave over the plans for building the Temple to his son Solomon according to a pre-existing blueprint known as the "Temple Scroll." The details of this plan had been handed down through the generations from Moses until Solomon (Yalkut Shimoni Chr. I). This scroll included detailed drawings and diagrams of the Temple and its vessels, and was passed down in this form throughout the generations. David and Solomon merely carried out the plans which they had received from the prophet Samuel.
