Who can contain Him?

2 Chronicles 2:5 The house that I am to build will be great, for our God is greater than all gods.  But who is able to build him a house, since heaven, even highest heaven, cannot contain him? Who am I to build a house for him, except as a place to make offerings before him? 

As Solomon prepares to build the temple, he wrote to King Hiram of Tyre, he says twice (verses 1 and 4) that he is building a house “for the name of the Lord, my God” and then tells him this house is going to be great, because our God is greater than all other gods.  Indeed, he cannot be contained in a house, but it will be a place of worship!
