IN THE 7TH CHAPTER OF 7TH SAMUEL, IN THE HOLY BIBLE, we discover that God sent a message to David, King of Israel by Nathan the Prophet. And God commanded Nathan to tell David, ‘Thus saith YAHWEH to hosts, I took thee from the sheep cote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over My people Israel; and I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of My sight. And have made thee a great name like unto the name of the great men that are in the earth. Moreover, I will appoint a place for My people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them anymore, as beforetime.’

When God was speaking to David and when HE told David that HE was going to appoint a place for ‘My children of Israel to dwell,’ David was standing in Jerusalem. He was standing by his pillar, by his coronation stone. God spoke to David and said, ‘I am going to appoint another place for My people Israel to dwell.’
