I have been with you wherever you have gone,1 and I have cut off all your enemies from before you.2 Now I will make your name great, like the names of the greatest men of the earth.310
And I will provide a place for my people Israel and will plant4 them so that they can have a home of their own and no longer be disturbed.5 Wicked6 people will not oppress them anymore,7 as they did at the beginning
and have done ever since the time I appointed leadersa8 over my people Israel. I will also give you rest from all your enemies.9 " 'The LORD declares10 to you that the LORD himself will establish11 a house12 for you:
When your days are over and you rest13 with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, who will come from your own body,14 and I will establish his kingdom.1513
He is the one who will build a house16 for my Name,17 and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.1814
I will be his father, and he will be my son.19 When he does wrong, I will punish him20 with the rod21 of men, with floggings inflicted by men.
But my love will never be taken away from him,22 as I took it away from Saul,23 whom I removed from before you.
Your house and your kingdom will endure forever before meb; your throne24 will be established25 forever.26' "
