“But I will not break off My lovingkindness from him,
Nor deal falsely in My faithfulness.
but My lovingkindness shall not depart from him, as I took it away from Saul, whom I removed from before you.
Also the Glory of Israel will not lie or change His mind; for He is not a man that He should change His mind.”
He shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.
However, I will not tear away all the kingdom, but I will give one tribe to your son for the sake of My servant David and for the sake of Jerusalem which I have chosen.”
(but he will have one tribe, for the sake of My servant David and for the sake of Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen from all the tribes of Israel),
But to his son I will give one tribe, that My servant David may have a lamp always before Me in Jerusalem, the city where I have chosen for Myself to put My name.
You have spurned the covenant of Your servant;
You have profaned his crown in the dust.
“In an outburst of anger
I hid My face from you for a moment,
But with everlasting lovingkindness I will have compassion on you,”
Says the Lord your Redeemer.
“Thus says the Lord, ‘If you can break My covenant for the day and My covenant for the night, so that day and night will not be at their appointed time,
For the Lord will not reject forever,
For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet.
so that by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us.
