2 Samuel 23:1-7

David's Last Song

1 Now these are the last words of David. David the son of Jesse declares, 1The man who was raised on high declares, 2The anointed of the God of Jacob, And the sweet psalmist of Israel,
2 "3The Spirit of the LORD spoke by me, And His word was on my tongue.
3 "The God of Israel said, 4The Rock of Israel spoke to me, '5He who rules over men righteously, 6Who rules in the fear of God,
4 7Is as the light of the morning when the sun rises, A morning without clouds, When the tender grass springs out of the earth, Through sunshine after rain.
5 "Truly is not my house so with God? For 8He has made an everlasting covenant with me, Ordered in all things, and secured; For all my salvation and all my desire, Will He not indeed make it grow?
6 "9But the worthless, every one of them will be thrust away like thorns, Because they cannot be taken in hand;
7 But the man who touches them Must be armed with iron and the shaft of a spear, And 10they will be completely burned with fire in their place."
