13 “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain,m or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, 14 if my people, who are called by my name,n will humbleo themselves and pray and seek my facep and turnq from their wicked ways, then I will hearr from heaven, and I will forgives their sin and will healt their land. 15 Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.u 16 I have chosenv and consecrated this temple so that my Name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there.
17 “As for you, if you walk before me faithfullyw as David your father did, and do all I command, and observe my decreesx and laws, 18 I will establish your royal throne, as I covenantedy with David your father when I said, ‘You shall never fail to have a successorz to rule over Israel.’a

I will make it a byword and an object of ridiculef among all peoples. 21 This temple will become a heap of rubble. Allc who pass by will be appalledg and say,h ‘Why has the Lord done such a thing to this land and to this temple?’ 22 People will answer, ‘Because they have forsaken the Lord, the God of their ancestors, who brought them out of Egypt, and have embraced other gods, worshiping and serving themi—that is why he brought all this disaster on them.’ ”
