NIV 2 Nathan replied to David, “Whatever you have in mind, do it, for God is with you.” GNT 3 But that night God said to Nathan, NIV 3 But that night the word of God came to Nathan, saying: GNT 4 "Go and tell my servant David that I say to him, "You are not the one to build a temple for me to live in. NIV 4 “Go and tell my servant David, ‘This is what the LORD says: You are not the one to build me a house to dwell in. GNT 5 From the time I rescued the people of Israel from Egypt until now I have never lived in a temple; I have always lived in tents and moved from place to place. NIV 5 I have not dwelt in a house from the day I brought Israel up out of Egypt to this day. I have moved from one tent site to another, from one dwelling place to another. GNT 6 In all my traveling with the people of Israel I never asked any of the leaders that I appointed why they had not built me a temple made of cedar.' NIV 6 Wherever I have moved with all the Israelites, did I ever say to any of their leaders whom I commanded to shepherd my people, “Why have you not built me a house of cedar?” ’ GNT 7 "So tell my servant David that I, the Lord Almighty, say to him, "I took you from looking after sheep in the fields and made you the ruler of my people Israel.

NIV 8 I have been with you wherever you have gone, and I have cut off all your enemies from before you. Now I will make your name like the names of the greatest men on earth. GNT 9 I have chosen a place for my people Israel and have settled them there, where they will live without being oppressed any more. Ever since they entered this land they have been attacked by violent people, but this will not happen again. I promise to defeat all your enemies and to give you descendants. NIV 9 And I will provide a place for my people Israel and will plant them so that they can have a home of their own and no longer be disturbed. Wicked people will not oppress them anymore, as they did at the beginning GNT 11 When you die and are buried with your ancestors, I will make one of your sons king and will keep his kingdom strong. NIV 11 When your days are over and you go to be with your ancestors, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, one of your own sons, and I will establish his kingdom. GNT 12 He will be the one to build a temple for me, and I will make sure that his dynasty continues forever. NIV 12 He is the one who will build a house for me, and I will establish his throne forever. GNT 13 I will be his father, and he will be my son. I will not withdraw my support from him as I did from Saul, whom I removed so that you could be king. NIV 13 I will be his father, and he will be my son.

NIV 15 Nathan reported to David all the words of this entire revelation. GNT 16 Then King David went into the Tent of the Lord's presence, sat down, and prayed, "I am not worthy of what you have already done for me, Lord God, nor is my family. NIV 16 Then King David went in and sat before the LORD, and he said: “Who am I, LORD God, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far? GNT 17 Yet now you are doing even more; you have made promises about my descendants in the years to come, and you, Lord God, are already treating me like someone great. NIV 17 And as if this were not enough in your sight, my God, you have spoken about the future of the house of your servant. You, LORD God, have looked on me as though I were the most exalted of men. GNT 18 What more can I say to you! You know me well, and yet you honor me, your servant. NIV 18 “What more can David say to you for honoring your servant? For you know your servant, GNT 19 It was your will and purpose to do this for me and to show me my future greatness. NIV 19 LORD. For the sake of your servant and according to your will, you have done this great thing and made known all these great promises. GNT 20 Lord, there is none like you; we have always known that you alone are God. NIV 20 “There is no one like you, LORD, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears. GNT 21 There is no other nation on earth like Israel, whom you rescued from slavery to make them your own people. The great and wonderful things you did for them spread your fame throughout the world. You rescued your people from Egypt and drove out other nations as your people advanced. NIV 21 And who is like your people Israel—the one nation on earth whose God went out to redeem a people for himself, and to make a name for yourself, and to perform great and awesome wonders by driving out nations from before your people, whom you redeemed from Egypt? GNT 22 You have made Israel your own people forever, and you, Lord, have become their God. NIV 22 You made your people Israel your very own forever, and you, LORD, have become their God. GNT 23 "And now, O Lord, fulfill for all time the promise you made about me and my descendants, and do what you said you would. NIV 23 “And now, LORD, let the promise you have made concerning your servant and his house be established forever. Do as you promised, GNT 24 Your fame will be great, and people will forever say, "The Lord Almighty is God over Israel.' And you will preserve my dynasty for all time. NIV 24 so that it will be established and that your name will be great forever. Then people will say, ‘The LORD Almighty, the God over Israel, is Israel’s God!’ And the house of your servant David will be established before you. GNT 25 I have the courage to pray this prayer to you, my God, because you have revealed all this to me, your servant, and have told me that you will make my descendants kings. NIV 25 “You, my God, have revealed to your servant that you will build a house for him. So your servant has found courage to pray to you. GNT 26 You, Lord, are God, and you have made this wonderful promise to me. NIV 26 You, LORD, are God! You have promised these good things to your servant. GNT 27 I ask you to bless my descendants so that they will continue to enjoy your favor. You, Lord, have blessed them, and your blessing will rest on them forever." NIV 27 Now you have been pleased to bless the house of your servant, that it may continue forever in your sight; for you, LORD, have blessed it, and it will be blessed forever.”
