I have found David My servant; I have anointed him with My sacred oil.
My hand will always be with him, and My arm will strengthen him.
The enemy will not afflict him; no wicked man will oppress him.
I will crush his foes before him and strike those who hate him.
My faithfulness and love will be with him, and through My name his horn will be exalted.
I will extend his power to the sea and his right hand to the rivers.
He will call to Me, 'You are my Father, my God, the rock of my salvation.'
I will also make him My firstborn, greatest of the kings of the earth.
I will always preserve My faithful love for him, and My covenant with him will endure.
I will establish his line forever, his throne as long as heaven lasts.
If his sons forsake My instruction and do not live by My ordinances,
if they dishonor My statutes and do not keep My commandments,
then I will call their rebellion to account with the rod, their sin with blows.
But I will not withdraw My faithful love from him or betray My faithfulness.
I will not violate My covenant or change what My lips have said.
Once and for all I have sworn an oath by My holiness; I will not lie to David.
His offspring will continue forever, his throne like the sun before Me,
like the moon, established forever, a faithful witness in the sky." Selah
