Your house and kingdom will endure before Me forever, and your throne will be established forever.'"
Ask of Me, and I will make the nations Your inheritance and the ends of the earth Your possession.
And may he rule from sea to sea and from the Euphrates to the ends of the earth.
May desert tribes kneel before him and his enemies lick the dust.
May the kings of Tarshish and the coasts and islands bring tribute, the kings of Sheba and Seba offer gifts.
And let all kings bow down to him, all nations serve him.
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
In those days and at that time I will cause a Branch of righteousness to sprout up for David, and He will administer justice and righteousness in the land.
In those days Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will dwell securely, and this is what she will be named: The LORD Is Our Righteousness.
For this is what the LORD says: David will never fail to have a man sitting on the throne of the house of Israel.
The Levitical priests will never fail to have a man always before Me to offer burnt offerings, to burn grain offerings, and to make sacrifices."
The word of the LORD came to Jeremiah:
"This is what the LORD says: If you can break My covenant with the day and My covenant with the night so that day and night cease to come at their regular time,
then also My covenant with My servant David may be broken so that he will not have a son reigning on his throne, and the Levitical priests will not be My ministers.
Then the iron, the fired clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were shattered and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors. The wind carried them away, and not a trace of them could be found. But the stone that struck the statue became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.
"In the days of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, and this kingdom will not be left to another people. It will crush all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, but will itself endure forever.
He was given authority to rule, and glory, and a kingdom; so that those of every people, nation, and language should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and His kingdom is one that will not be destroyed.
The kingdom, dominion, and greatness of the kingdoms under all of heaven will be given to the people, the holy ones of the Most High. His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all rulers will serve and obey Him.'
He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.
He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end.
Then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to God the Father, when He abolishes all rule and all authority and power.
For He must reign until He puts all His enemies under His feet.
The last enemy to be abolished is death.
For He has put everything under His feet. But when it says "everything" is put under Him, it is obvious that He who puts everything under Him is the exception.
And when everything is subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who subjected everything to Him, so that God may be all in all.

His delight will be in the fear of the LORD. He will not judge by what He sees with His eyes, He will not execute justice by what He hears with His ears,
but He will judge the poor righteously and execute justice for the oppressed of the land. He will strike the land with discipline from His mouth, and He will kill the wicked with a command from His lips.
Righteousness and faithfulness will be a belt around His waist.
Indeed, a king will reign righteously, and rulers will rule justly.
Each will be like a shelter from the wind, a refuge from the rain, like streams of water in a dry land and the shade of a massive rock in an arid land.
in your splendor ride triumphantly in the cause of truth, humility, and justice. May your right hand show your awe-inspiring deeds.
Your arrows pierce the hearts of the king's enemies; the peoples fall under you.
Your throne, God, is forever and ever; the scepter of Your kingdom is a scepter of justice.
[Solomonic.] God, give Your justice to the king and Your righteousness to the king's son.
He will judge Your people with righteousness and Your afflicted ones with justice.
May the mountains bring prosperity to the people, and the hills, righteousness.
but about the Son: Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, and the scepter of Your kingdom is a scepter of justice.
Then I saw heaven opened, and there was a white horse! Its rider is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.
For a remnant will go out from Jerusalem, and survivors from Mount Zion. The zeal of the LORD of Hosts will accomplish this.'
He saw that there was no man-- He was amazed that there was no one interceding; so His own arm brought salvation, and His own righteousness supported Him.
He put on righteousness like a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on His head; He put on garments of vengeance for clothing, and He wrapped Himself in zeal as in a cloak.
For I planned the day of vengeance, and the year of My redemption came.
I looked, but there was no one to help, and I was amazed that no one assisted; so My arm accomplished victory for Me, and My wrath assisted Me.
I crushed nations in My anger; I made them drunk with My wrath and poured out their blood on the ground.
For a remnant will go out from Jerusalem, and survivors from Mount Zion. The zeal of the LORD of Hosts will accomplish this.
Then I had concern for My holy name, which the house of Israel profaned among the nations where they went.
"Therefore, say to the house of Israel: This is what the Lord God says: It is not for your sake that I will act, house of Israel, but for My holy name, which you profaned among the nations where you went.
I will honor the holiness of My great name, which has been profaned among the nations-- the name you have profaned among them. The nations will know that I am Yahweh"-- the declaration of the Lord God-- "when I demonstrate My holiness through you in their sight.
