CEB 1 When the king was settled in his palace, and the LORD had given him rest from all his surrounding enemies, NIV 1 After the king was settled in his palace and the LORD had given him rest from all his enemies around him, CEB 2 the king said to the prophet Nathan, "Look! I'm living in a cedar palace, but God's chest is housed in a tent!" NIV 2 he said to Nathan the prophet, “Here I am, living in a house of cedar, while the ark of God remains in a tent.” CEB 3 Nathan said to the king, "Go ahead and do whatever you are thinking, because the LORD is with you." NIV 3 Nathan replied to the king, “Whatever you have in mind, go ahead and do it, for the LORD is with you.” CEB 4 But that very night the LORD's word came to Nathan: NIV 4 But that night the word of the LORD came to Nathan, saying: CEB 5 Go to my servant David and tell him: This is what the LORD says: You are not the one to build the temple for me to live in. NIV 5 “Go and tell my servant David, ‘This is what the LORD says: Are you the one to build me a house to dwell in? CEB 6 In fact, I haven't lived in a temple from the day I brought Israel out of Egypt until now. Instead, I have been traveling around in a tent and in a dwelling. NIV 6 I have not dwelt in a house from the day I brought the Israelites up out of Egypt to this day. I have been moving from place to place with a tent as my dwelling. CEB 7 Throughout my traveling around with the Israelites, did I ever ask any of Israel's tribal leaders I appointed to shepherd my people: Why haven't you built me a cedar temple? NIV 7 Wherever I have moved with all the Israelites, did I ever say to any of their rulers whom I commanded to shepherd my people Israel, “Why have you not built me a house of cedar?” ’ CEB 8 So then, say this to my servant David: This is what the LORD of heavenly forces says: I took you from the pasture, from following the flock, to be leader over my people Israel. NIV 8 “Now then, tell my servant David, ‘This is what the LORD Almighty says: I took you from the pasture, from tending the flock, and appointed you ruler over my people Israel. CEB 9 I've been with you wherever you've gone, and I've eliminated all your enemies before you. Now I will make your name great—like the name of the greatest people on earth. NIV 9 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 great, like the names of the greatest men on earth. CEB 10 I'm going to provide a place for my people Israel, and plant them so that they may live there and no longer be disturbed. Cruel people will no longer trouble them, as they had been earlier, NIV 10 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 CEB 11 when I appointed leaders over my people Israel. And I will give you rest from all your enemies. And the LORD declares to you that the LORD will make a dynasty for you. NIV 11 and have done ever since the time I appointed leaders over my people Israel. I will also give you rest from all your enemies. “ ‘The LORD declares to you that the LORD himself will establish a house for you: CEB 12 When the time comes for you to die and you lie down with your ancestors, I will raise up your descendant—one of your very own children—to succeed you, and I will establish his kingdom. NIV 12 When your days are over and you rest with your ancestors, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, your own flesh and blood, and I will establish his kingdom. CEB 13 He will build a temple for my name, and I will establish his royal throne forever. NIV 13 He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. CEB 14 I will be a father to him, and he will be a son to me. Whenever he does wrong, I will discipline him with a human rod, with blows from human beings. NIV 14 I will be his father, and he will be my son. When he does wrong, I will punish him with a rod wielded by men, with floggings inflicted by human hands. CEB 15 But I will never take my faithful love away from him like I took it away from Saul, whom I set aside in favor of you. NIV 15 But my love will never be taken away from him, as I took it away from Saul, whom I removed from before you. CEB 16 Your dynasty and your kingdom will be secured forever before me. Your throne will be established forever.

NIV 17 Nathan reported to David all the words of this entire revelation. CEB 18 Then King David went and sat in the LORD's presence. He asked: Who am I, LORD God, and of what significance is my family that you have brought me this far? NIV 18 Then King David went in and sat before the LORD, and he said: “Who am I, Sovereign LORD, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far? CEB 19 But even this was too small in your eyes, LORD God! Now you have also spoken about your servant's dynasty in the future and the generation to come,LORD God! NIV 19 And as if this were not enough in your sight, Sovereign LORD, you have also spoken about the future of the house of your servant—and this decree, Sovereign LORD, is for a mere human!

There is no one like you, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears. CEB 23 And who can compare to your people Israel? They are the one nation on earth that God redeemed as his own people, establishing his name by doing great and awesome things for them, by driving out nations and their gods before your people, whom you redeemed from Egypt. NIV 23 And who is like your people Israel—the one nation on earth that God went out to redeem as a people for himself, and to make a name for himself, and to perform great and awesome wonders by driving out nations and their gods from before your people, whom you redeemed from Egypt? CEB 24 You established your people Israel as your own people forever, and you, LORD, became their God. NIV 24 You have established your people Israel as your very own forever, and you, LORD, have become their God. CEB 25 Now, LORD God, confirm forever the promise you have made about your servant and his dynasty. Do just as you have promised NIV 25 “And now, LORD God, keep forever the promise you have made concerning your servant and his house. Do as you promised, CEB 26 so that your name will be great forever when people say, "The LORD of heavenly forces is Israel's God!" May your servant David's household be established before you, NIV 26 so that your name will be great forever. Then people will say, ‘The LORD Almighty is God over Israel!’ And the house of your servant David will be established in your sight. CEB 27 because you, LORD of heavenly forces, Israel's God, have revealed to your servant that you will build a dynasty for him. That is why your servant has found the courage to pray this prayer to you. NIV 27 “LORD Almighty, God of Israel, you have revealed this to your servant, saying, ‘I will build a house for you.’ So your servant has found courage to pray this prayer to you. CEB 28 LORD God, you are truly God! Your words are trustworthy, and you have promised this good thing to your servant. NIV 28 Sovereign LORD, you are God! Your covenant is trustworthy, and you have promised these good things to your servant.

NIV 29 Now be pleased to bless the house of your servant, that it may continue forever in your sight; for you, Sovereign LORD, have spoken, and with your blessing the house of your servant will be blessed forever.”
