17 For thus saith the Lord; †hDavid shall never want a man ito sit upon the throne of the house of Israel; 18 Neither shall jthe priests the Levites want a man before me kto offer burnt offerings, and lto kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually.
19 And the word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah, saying, 20 Thus saith the Lord; mIf ye can break my covenant of the day, and my covenant of the night, and that there should not be day and night in their season; 21 nThen may also my covenant be broken with David my servant, that he should not have a son ito reign upon his throne; and with jthe Levites the priests, my ministers. 22 As opthe host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither qthe sand of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David my servant, and the Levites that minister unto me.
