David shall never want
this is what the LORD of Hosts, the God of Israel, says: Jonadab son of Rechab will never fail to have a man to always stand before Me.'"
May it hang over Joab's head and his father's whole house, and may the house of Joab never be without someone who has an infection or leprosy or a man who can only work a spindle or someone who falls by the sword or starves."
I will be a father to him, and he will be a son to Me. When he does wrong, I will discipline him with a human rod and with blows from others.
But My faithful love will never leave him as I removed it from Saul; I removed him from your way.
Your house and kingdom will endure before Me forever, and your throne will be established forever.'"
and so that the LORD will carry out His promise that He made to me: 'If your sons are careful to walk faithfully before Me with their whole mind and heart, you will never fail to have a man on the throne of Israel.'
Therefore, LORD God of Israel, keep what You promised to Your servant, my father David: You will never fail to have a man to sit before Me on the throne of Israel, if only your sons guard their walk before Me as you have walked before Me.
When your time comes to be with your fathers, I will raise up after you your descendant, who is one of your own sons, and I will establish his kingdom.
He will build a house for Me, and I will establish his throne forever.
I will be a father to him, and he will be a son to Me. I will not take away My faithful love from him as I took it from the one who was before you.
I will appoint him over My house and My kingdom forever, and his throne will be established forever.'"
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
The dominion will be vast, and its prosperity will never end. He will reign on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish and sustain it with justice and righteousness from now on and forever. The zeal of the LORD of Hosts will accomplish this.
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.
