A Second (Brief) Scholion on David and the Psalms

"David said, 'the house that is to be built for the Lord must be exceedingly great....I will therefore make preparation for it.' So David provided materials in great quantity before his death."
1 Chronicles 22: 5

Understanding that the bodies of the faithful are the new temple of the Lord, can this prophecy mean anything other than that we adorn the interior of this new temple in the Spirit by recitation of the 'materials provided' by David, the Psalms?
