2 Samuel 7

Chapter 7

7:15  But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee.

mercy

Verses 14 and 15 state the principle of judgment within the family of God. (See Scofield "1 Corinthians 11:31") . It is always remedial, not penal Hebrews 12:5-11 .

Judgment of the wicked is penal, not remedial.

7:16  And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever.

The Davidic Covenant

The Davidic Covenant 2 Samuel 7:8-17 .

This covenant, upon which the glorious kingdom of Christ "of the seed of David according to the flesh" is to be founded, secures:

(1) A Davidic "house"; i.e. posterity, family

(2) A "throne"; i.e. royal authority

(3) A kingdom; i.e. sphere of rule

(4) In perpetuity; "for ever"

(5) And this fourfold covenant has but one condition: disobedience in the Davidic family is to be visited with chastisement; but not to the abrogation of the covenant 2 Samuel 7:15 ; Psalms 89:20-37 ; Isaiah 24:5 ; 54:3 .

The chastisement fell; first in the division of the kingdom under Rehoboam, and, finally, in the captivities. 2 Kings 25:1-7 . Since that time but one King of the Davidic family has been crowned at Jerusalem and He was crowned with thorns. But the Davidic Covenant confirmed to David by the oath of Jehovah, and renewed to Mary by the angel Gabriel, is immutable Psalms 89:30-37 and the Lord God will yet give to that thorn-crowned One "the throne of his father David." ; Luke 1:31-33 ; Acts 2:29-32 ; 15:14-17 .

See, for the other seven covenants:

7:23  And what one nation in the earth is like thy people, even like Israel, whom God went to redeem for a people to himself, and to make him a name, and to do for you great things and terrible, for thy land, before thy people, which thou redeemedst to thee from Egypt, from the nations and their gods?
