2 Samuel 7:3-4 David consults Nathan so that he would know that he is in God’s will. Nathan told the king that he should build a temple for the Lord, Nathan totally agreed with King David’s proposal. This proposal could also be taken as a pagan act. In that time the pagans thought that all their gods wanted was to be happy, and have the people as slaves to them. This idea could have given King David the thought of build a better temple for the Lord, to appease Him. All God really wanted King David to do was watch over and shepherd His people Israel. 2 Samuel 7:5-17
