2 Samuel 7:8–17
8 Now therefore, thus shall you say to My servant David, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts: k“I took you from the sheepfold, from following the sheep, to be ruler over My people, over Israel. 9 And lI have been with you wherever you have gone, mand have 1cut off all your enemies from before you, and have made you a great name, like the name of the great men who are on the earth. 10 Moreover I will appoint a place for My people Israel, and will nplant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own and move no more; onor shall the sons of wickedness oppress them anymore, as previously, 11 psince the time that I commanded judges to be over My people Israel, and have caused you to rest from all your enemies. Also the Lord 2tells you qthat He will make you a 3house.
12 r“When your days are fulfilled and you srest with your fathers, tI will set up your seed after you, who will come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 uHe shall build a house for My name, and I will vestablish the throne of his kingdom forever. 14 wI will be his Father, and he shall be xMy son. If he commits iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men and with the 4blows of the sons of men. 15 But My mercy shall not depart from him, yas I took it from Saul, whom I removed from before you. 16 And zyour house and your kingdom shall be established forever before 5you. Your throne shall be established forever.” ’ ”
