30 "If his sons 1forsake My law And do not walk in My judgments,
31 If they violate My statutes And do not keep My commandments,
32 Then I will punish their transgression with the 2rod And their iniquity with stripes.
33 "But I will not break off 3My lovingkindness from him, Nor deal falsely in My faithfulness.
34 "My 4covenant I will not violate, Nor will I 5alter the utterance of My lips.
35 "Once I have 6sworn by My holiness; I will not lie to David.
36 "His 7descendants shall endure forever And his 8throne 9as the sun before Me.
37 "It shall be established forever 10like the moon, And the 11witness in the sky is faithful." Selah.
