1 Kings 15:4; Psalm 37:26; Psalm 112:2; Jeremiah 33:20-21

Nevertheless, for David's sake the Lord his God gave him ya lamp in Jerusalem, setting up his son after him, and establishing Jerusalem,


26  He is ever nlending generously,

and his children become a blessing.


His koffspring will be mighty in the land;

lthe generation of the upright will be blessed.


20 vThus says the Lord: wIf you can break my covenant with the day and my covenant with the night, xso that day and night will not come at their appointed time, 21 ythen also my covenant with David my servant may be broken, so that he shall not have a son to reign on his throne, and my covenant with the Levitical priests my ministers.
