but I will not remove from him my steadfast love, or be false to my faithfulness.
I will not violate my covenant, or alter the word that went forth from my lips.
Once for all I have sworn by my holiness; I will not lie to David.
His line shall endure for ever, his throne as long as the sun before me.
Like the moon it shall be established for ever; it shall stand firm while the skies endure." [Selah]
But now thou hast cast off and rejected, thou art full of wrath against thy anointed.
Thou hast renounced the covenant with thy servant; thou hast defiled his crown in the dust.
Thou hast breached all his walls; thou hast laid his strongholds in ruins.
All that pass by despoil him; he has become the scorn of his neighbors.
Thou hast exalted the right hand of his foes; thou hast made all his enemies rejoice.
Yea, thou hast turned back the edge of his sword, and thou hast not made him stand in battle.
