Then may also my covenant be broken with David my servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his throne; and with the Levites the priests, my ministers .
As the host of heaven cannot be numbered , neither the sand of the seameasured : so will I multiply the seed of David my servant, and the Levites that minister unto me.
Moreover the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah,saying ,
24Considerest thou not what this people have spoken , saying , The twofamilies which the LORD hath chosen , he hath even cast them off ? thus they have despised my people, that they should be no more a nationbefore them.
Thus saith the LORD; If my covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth;26Then will I cast away the seed of Jacob, and David my servant, so that I will not take any of his seed to be rulers over the seed of Abraham,Isaac, and Jacob: for I will cause their captivity to return , and have mercy on them.
