GW 1 While King David was living in his house, the LORD gave him peace with all his enemies around him. NIV 1 After the king was settled in his palace and the LORD had given him rest from all his enemies around him, GW 2 So the king said to the prophet Nathan, "Look, I'm living in a house made of cedar, while the ark of God remains in the 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.” GW 3 Nathan told the king, "Do everything you have in mind, 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.” GW 4 But that same night the LORD spoke his word to Nathan: NIV 4 But that night the word of the LORD came to Nathan, saying: GW 5 "Say to my servant David, 'This is what the LORD says: Are you the one who will build me a house 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? GW 6 I haven't lived in a house from the day I took Israel out of Egypt to this day. Instead, I moved around in a tent, the tent [of meeting]. 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. GW 7 In all the places I've moved with all the Israelites, did I ever ask any of the judges of Israel whom I ordered to be shepherds of my people Israel why they didn't build me a house of cedar?' 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?” ’ GW 8 "Now this is what you will say to my servant David: 'This is what the LORD of Armies says: I took you from the pasture where you followed sheep so that you could be the leader of 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. GW 9 I was with you wherever you went, and I destroyed all your enemies in front of you. I will make your name famous like the names 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. GW 10 I will make a place for my people Israel and plant them there. They will live in their own place and not be troubled anymore. The wicked will no longer oppress them as they used to do 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 GW 11 ever since I appointed judges to rule my people Israel. So I will give you peace with all your enemies. I, the LORD, tell you that I will make a house 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: GW 12 "'When the time comes for you to lie down in death with your ancestors, I will send one of your descendants, [one] who will come from you. 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. GW 13 He will build a house for my name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom 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. GW 14 I will be his Father, and he will be my Son. If he sins, I will punish him with a rod and with blows inflicted by people. 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. GW 15 But I will never stop showing him my love as I did to Saul, whom I took out of your way. 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. GW 16 Your royal house will remain in my presence forever. Your throne will be established forever.'" NIV 16 Your house and your kingdom will endure forever before me ; your throne will be established forever.’ ” GW 17 Nathan told David all these words and everything he had seen. NIV 17 Nathan reported to David all the words of this entire revelation. GW 18 King David went into the tent and sat in front of the LORD. "Who am I, Almighty LORD," he asked, "and why is my house so important 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? GW 19 And even this you consider to be a small act, Almighty LORD. You've also spoken about the distant future of my house. Almighty LORD, this is the teaching about the man. 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! GW 20 "What more can I, David, say to you, Almighty LORD, since you know me so well! NIV 20 “What more can David say to you? For you know your servant, Sovereign LORD. GW 21 You've done this great thing because of your promise and your own desire. You made it known to me.

There is no one like you, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears. GW 23 Who is like your people Israel? It is the one nation on earth that God came to free in order to make its people his own, to make his name known, and to do great and wonderful things for them. You forced nations and their gods out of the way of your people, whom you freed from Egypt to be your own. 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? GW 24 You created the people of Israel to be your 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. GW 25 "Now, LORD God, keep the promise you made to me and my house forever. Do as you promised. NIV 25 “And now, LORD God, keep forever the promise you have made concerning your servant and his house. Do as you promised, GW 26 Your name will be respected forever when [people] say, 'The LORD of Armies is God over Israel.' And the house of your servant David will be established in your presence. 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. GW 27 You, LORD of Armies, God of Israel, have revealed it especially to me, saying, 'I will build a house for you.' That is why I have found the courage to offer 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. GW 28 "Almighty LORD, you are God, and your words are trustworthy. You promised me this good thing. NIV 28 Sovereign LORD, you are God! Your covenant is trustworthy, and you have promised these good things to your servant. GW 29 Now, please bless my house so that it may continue in your presence forever. Indeed, you, Almighty LORD, have promised it. With your blessing my house will be blessed forever." 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.”
