30"If his sons1forsake My law And do not walk in My judgments,
31If they aviolate My statutes And do not keep My commandments,
Then I will punish their transgression with the 2rod And their iniquity with stripes.
"But I will not break off 3My lovingkindness from him, Nordealfalsely in My faithfulness.
"My 4covenant I will not bviolate, Nor will I 5altercthe utterance of My lips.
"dOnce I have 6sworn by My holiness ; I will not lie to David.
"His e7descendants shall endureforever And his 8throne9as the sunbefore Me.
"It shall be establishedforever10like the moon, And the 11witness in the sky is faithful." fSelah.
