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:
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.813
He is the one who will build a house9 for my Name,10 and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.1114
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.
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.
Your house and your kingdom will endure forever before meb; your throne17 will be established18 forever.19' "
Nathan reported to David all the words of this entire revelation.
