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.a33
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.b35
Once and for all I have sworn an oath by My holiness;c 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."d Selah
