1 Chronicles 17:16-27

David’s Prayer

16 Then King David went and sat before Yahweh and said, "Who [am] I, O Yahweh God, and what [is] my house that you have brought me thus far?
17 And this was a small [matter] in your eyes, O God. And you have spoken concerning the house of your servant for a long [time] and have shown me {future generations to come}, O Yahweh God.
18 {What more} can David [do] to you for honoring your servant? Now you know your servant.
19 O Yahweh, for the sake of your servant and according to your heart you have done all this greatness, to make known all [these] great things.
20 O Yahweh, there is none like you, and there is no God except you, according to all that we have heard with our ears.
21 And who [is] like your people Israel, [the] one nation upon earth whom God went to redeem for himself, to establish for you a reputation for great and awesome things, to drive out nations from before your people whom you redeemed from Egypt?
22 And you made your people Israel an everlasting nation for yourself. And you, O Yahweh, became their God.
23 So now, O Yahweh, let the word that you spoke to your servant and to his house be established forever, that you might do what you have spoken.
24 And let your name be established and be magnified forever, saying, 'Yahweh of hosts, the God of Israel, is Israel's God, and may the house of David your servant be established before you.'
25 For you, my God, {have informed} your servant [that] you will build a house for him. Therefore, your servant has found [courage] to pray before you.
26 So now, O Yahweh, you yourself [are] God, and you have spoken to your servant this good thing.
27 And now may you begin to bless the house of your servant {to continue forever} before you, for you, O Yahweh, have blessed. And it will be blessed forever."
