THE LORD GOD WILL GIVE HIM THE THRONE OF HIS ANCESTOR DAVID.
The word of the Lord came to Nathan: “Go and tell my servant David, ‘Thus the Lord speaks: When your days are ended and you are laid to rest with your ancestors, I will preserve the offspring of your body after you and make his sovereignty secure. (It is he who shall build a house for my name, and I will make his royal throne secure for ever.)
I will be a father to him and he a son to me. Your House and your sovereignty will always stand secure before me and your throne be established for ever.’”
V. The word of the Lord.
