View In My Bible
11 and have done ever since the time I appointed leadersa1 over my people Israel. I will also give you rest from all your enemies.2 " 'The LORD declares3 to you that the LORD himself will establish4 a house5 for you: 12 When your days are over and you rest6 with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, who will come from your own body,7 and I will establish his kingdom.8 13 He is the one who will build a house9 for my Name,10 and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.11 14 I will be his father, and he will be my son.12 When he does wrong, I will punish him13 with the rod14 of men, with floggings inflicted by men. 15 But my love will never be taken away from him,15 as I took it away from Saul,16 whom I removed from before you. 16 Your house and your kingdom will endure forever before meb; your throne17 will be established18 forever.19' " 17 Nathan reported to David all the words of this entire revelation.

David's Prayer

7:18-29pp -- 1Ch 17:16-27

18 Then King David went in and sat before the LORD, and he said: "Who am I,20 O Sovereign LORD, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far? 19 And as if this were not enough in your sight, O Sovereign LORD, you have also spoken about the future of the house of your servant. Is this your usual way of dealing with man,21 O Sovereign LORD? 20 "What more can David say22 to you? For you know23 your servant,24 O Sovereign LORD. 21 For the sake of your word and according to your will, you have done this great thing and made it known to your servant.
