If his children forsake my law, And don't walk in my ordinances;
If they break my statutes, And don't keep my commandments;
Then I will punish their sin with the rod, And their iniquity with stripes.
But I will not completely take my lovingkindness from him, Nor allow my faithfulness to fail.
I will not break my covenant, Nor alter what my lips have uttered.
Once have I sworn by my holiness, I will not lie to David.
His seed will endure forever, His throne like the sun before me.
It will be established forever like the moon, The faithful witness in the sky." Selah.
