(88-31) And if his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments:
(88-32) If they profane my justices: and keep not my commandments:
(88-33) I will visit their iniquities with a rod and their sins with stripes.
(88-34) But my mercy I will not take away from him: nor will I suffer my truth to fail.
(88-35) Neither will I profane my covenant: and the words that proceed from my mouth I will not make void.
(88-36) Once have I sworn by my holiness: I will not lie unto David:
(88-37) His seed shall endure for ever.
(88-38) And his throne as the sun before me: and as the moon perfect for ever, and a faithful witness in heaven.
