|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
7 I will guarantee that his kingdom will last if he continues to be as strong-minded in doing what I command and carrying out my decisions as he is doing now.'
7 I will establish his kingdom forever if he is unswerving in carrying out my commands and laws, as is being done at this time.'
