2 Samuel 7:12–16; Psalm 132:11; Matthew 1:1; Romans 1:3

12 mWhen your days are fulfilled and nyou lie down with your fathers, oI will raise up your offspring after you, who shall come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 pHe shall build a house for my name, and qI will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. 14 rI will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son. When he commits iniquity, sI will discipline him with the rod of men, with the stripes of the sons of men, 15 sbut my steadfast love will not depart from him, tas I took it from Saul, whom I put away from before you. 16 uAnd your house and your kingdom shall be made sure forever before me.1 uYour throne shall be established forever.


11  pThe Lord swore to David a sure oath

qfrom which he will not turn back:

rOne of the sons of your body1

I will set on your throne.
