2 Samuel 7:17-29 - David Responds To Yahweh's Covenant

17 According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so Nathan spoke to David.

18 Then David the king went in, and sat before LORD. And he said, Who am I, O lord LORD, and what is my house, that thou have brought me thus far? 19 And this was yet a small thing in thine eyes, O lord LORD, but thou have spoken also of thy servant's house for a great while to come, and this [too] according to the manner of men, O lord LORD! 20 And what can David say more to thee? For thou know thy servant, O lord LORD. 21 For thy word's sake, and according to thine own heart, thou have wrought all this greatness, to make thy servant know it. 22 Therefore thou are great, O LORD God, for there is none like thee, neither is there any God besides thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears. 23 And what one nation on the earth is like thy people, even like Israel, whom God went to redeem to himself for a people, and to make him a name, and to do great things for you, and awesome things for thy land, before thy people whom 24 And thou established to thyself thy people Israel to be a people to thee forever, and thou, LORD, became their God. 25 And now, O LORD God, the word that thou have spoken concerning thy servant, and concerning his house, confirm it forever, and do as thou have spoken. 26 And let thy name be magnified forever, saying, LORD of hosts is God over Israel, and the house of thy servant David shall be established before thee. 27 For thou, O LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, have revealed to thy servant, saying, I will build thee a house. Therefore thy servant has found in his heart to pray this prayer to thee. 28 And now, O lord LORD, thou are God, and thy words are truth, and thou have promised this good thing to thy servant. 29 Now therefore let it please thee to bless the house of thy servant, that it may continue forever before thee, for thou, O lord LORD, have spoken it. And with thy blessing let the house of thy servant be blessed forever.
