If his children forsake my law, And walk not in mine ordinances;
If they break my statutes, And keep not my commandments;
Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, And their iniquity with stripes.
But my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, Nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.
My covenant will I not break, Nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.
Once have I sworn by my holiness: I will not lie unto David:
His seed shall endure for ever, And his throne as the sun before me.
It shall be established for ever as the moon, And [as] the faithful witness in the sky. [Selah
