With David and his house
the Holy Bible

--2 Samuel--

Although my house [be] not so with God; yet he hath made with me an everlasting covenant, ordered in all [things], and sure: for [this is] all my salvation, and all [my] desire, although he make [it] not to grow. (23:5)


I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him (89:20)

With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him (89:21)

The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him (89:22)

And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him (89:23)

But my faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted (89:24)

I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers (89:25)

He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation (89:26)

Also I will make him my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth (89:27)

My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him (89:28)

His seed also will I make to endure for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven (89:29)

If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments (89:30)

If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments (89:31)

Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes (89:32)

Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail (89:33)

My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips (89:34)

Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David (89:35)

His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me (89:36)

It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah (89:37)


[Then] may also my covenant be broken with David my servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his throne; and with the Levites the priests, my ministers. (33:21)
