4 so that the Lord may fulfill His [a]promise which He spoke regarding me, saying, ‘If your sons are careful about their way, to walk before Me in [b]truth with all their heart and all their soul, [c]you shall not be deprived of a man to occupy the throne of Israel.’
25 Now then, Lord, God of Israel, keep with Your servant David my father that which You have [a]promised him, saying, ‘[b]You shall not be deprived of a man to sit on the throne of Israel, if only your sons are careful about their way, to walk before Me as you have walked.’
1 Chronicles 17:11-14New American Standard Bible (NASB)
11 When your days are fulfilled that you must [a]go to be with your fathers, then I will set up one of your [b]descendants after you, who will be from your sons; and I will establish his kingdom.12 He shall build for Me a house, and I will establish his throne forever.13 I will be his father and he shall be My son; and I will not take My favor away from him, as I took it from him who was before you.14 But I will settle him in My house and in My kingdom forever, and his throne will be established forever.”’”
29 So I will establish his [a]descendants forever, And his throne as the days of heaven.
30 “If his sons abandon My Law And do not walk in My judgments, 31 If they [b]violate My statutes And do not keep My commandments, 32 Then I will punish their wrongdoing with the rod, And their guilt with [c]afflictions. 33 But I will not [d]withhold My favor from him, Nor deal falsely in My faithfulness. 34 I will not [e]violate My covenant, Nor will I alter [f]the utterance of My lips. 35 [g]Once I have sworn by My holiness; I will not lie to David. 36 His [h]descendants shall endure forever, And his throne as the sun before Me. 37 It shall be established forever like the moon, And a witness in the sky is faithful.” Selah
