2 Samuel 23:3-5 CEBA

3 Israel's God has spoken, Israel's rock said to me: "Whoever rules rightly over people, whoever rules in the fear of God,
4 is like the light of sunrise on a morning with no clouds, like the bright gleam after the rain that brings grass from the ground.
5 Yes, my house is this way with God! He has made an eternal covenant with me, laid out and secure in every detail. Yes, he provides every one of my victories and brings my every desire to pass.
