And it shall be that, when thy days are fulfilled, to sleep with thy fathers, then will I raise up thy seed after thee, who shall be of thy sons, - and I will establish his kingdom. He, shall build me a house, - and I will establish his throne unto times age-abiding.

Yahweh hath sworn unto David, in faithfulness, will he not turn from it, - Of the fruit of thy body, will I seat on thy throne.

Therefore did Yahweh shew himself angry with Solomon, - because his heart had turned aside from Yahweh God of Israel, who had appeared unto him twice; and had been giving command to him concerning this thing, that he should not go away after other gods, - but he had not taken heed unto that which Yahweh had commanded. Wherefore Yahweh said unto Solomon - Forasmuch as this hath come to pass with thee, and thou hast not heeded my covenant and my statutes, which I charged upon thee, I will, rend, the kingdom away from thee, and will give it unto a servant of thine. read more.
Notwithstanding, in thine own days, will I not do it, for the sake of David thy father, - out of the hand of thy son, will I rend it. Howbeit, all the kingdom, will I not rend away, one tribe, will I give unto thy son, - for the sake of David my servant, and for the sake of Jerusalem, which I have chosen.

And he said unto am, Solomon thy son - he, shall build my house, and my courts, - for I have made choice of him that he may be my son, and that, I, may be his father.

Then spakest thou in vision of thy men of lovingkindness, and saidst - I have laid help upon a mighty one, I have exalted one chosen from among the people; I have found David my servant, With mine own holy oil, have I anointed him; With whom my hand shall be firm, Yea, mine arm, shall strengthen him; read more.
No foe shall make exactions on him, Nor shall, a son of perversity, humiliate him; And I will shatter, from before him, his adversaries, And, them who hate him, will I smite; And, my faithfulness and my lovingkindness, shall be with him, And, in my Name, exalted shall be his horn; And I will set, in the sea, his hand, And, in the rivers, his right hand; He, shall cry out unto me, My Father, thou art, My GOD, and my Rock of Salvation! Yea, I, will appoint him, firstborn, Most High to the kings of the earth! Age-abidingly, will I keep for him my lovingkindness, And, my covenant, hath been made steadfast for him; Therefore will I appoint, to futurity, his seed, And his throne as the days of the heavens. If his sons forsake my law, And, in my regulations, do not walk; If, my statutes, they profane, And, my commandments, do not keep: Then will I punish, with a rod, their transgression; And, with stripes, their iniquity: But, my lovingkindness, will I not frustrate from them, Neither will I falsify my faithfulness; I will not violate my covenant, And that which hath proceeded out of my lips, will I not alter: One thing, have I sworn by my holiness, Verily, to David, will I not lie; His seed, age-abidingly, shall remain, And, his throne, be like the sun before me; Like the moon, shall it be established unto times age-abiding, And, a witness, in the skies, hath been made sure.

Now, therefore, thus, shalt thou say unto my servant, unto David: Thus, saith Yahweh of hosts, I myself, took thee away from the pasture, from after the flock, - to become leader over my people, over Israel; and was with thee, whithersoever thou didst go, and have cut off all thine enemies, from before thee, - and will make thee a name, like the name of the great ones who are in the earth; and will appoint a place for my people, for Israel, and will plant them, and they shall inhabit their place, and be unsettled no more, - neither shall the sons of perversity again humiliate them, as at first; read more.
even from the day when I put judges in charge over my people Israel, thus will I give thee rest from all thine enemies. And Yahweh must tell thee that, a house, will Yahweh make for thee. And it shall be that, when thy days shall be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, then will I raise up thy seed after thee, which proceedeth from thine own body, - and I will establish his kingdom. He, shall build a house for my name, - and I will establish his kingly throne unto times age-abiding: I, will become his father, And, he, shall become my son: If he commit iniquity, then will I correct him, with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the sons of men; But, my lovingkindness, shall not depart from him, - as I caused it to depart from Saul, whom I caused to depart from before thee. So shall thy house and thy kingdom be made steadfast unto times age-abiding, before thee, - thy throne, shall be established unto times age-abiding.

Then David the king rose up on his feet, and said, Hear me, my brethren and my people, - As for me, it was near my heart, to build a house of rest for the ark of the covenant of Yahweh, and for the footstool of our God, and I made ready to build. But, God, said to me, Thou shalt not build a house for my Name, - for, a man of war, thou art, and, blood, hast thou shed. Howbeit Yahweh, God of Israel, made choice of me, out of all of the house of my father, to become king over Israel unto times age-abiding, for, of Judah, had he made choice to be chief ruler, and, in the house of Judah, the house of my father, - and, among the sons of my father, with me, was he well-pleased, to make me king over all Israel; read more.
and, from among all my sons, - for, many sons, hath Yahweh given me, - he hath made choice of Solomon my son, to sit upon the throne of the kingdom of Yahweh, over Israel. And he said unto am, Solomon thy son - he, shall build my house, and my courts, - for I have made choice of him that he may be my son, and that, I, may be his father. So will I establish his kingdom, unto times age-abiding, - if he be strong, to do my commandments and my regulations, as at this day.

Lo! GOD, is mighty, yet will he not despise, Mighty in vigour of mind; He will not keep alive one who is lawless, but, the right of oppressed ones, will he grant; He will not withdraw - from a righteous one - his eyes, - but, with kings on the throne, He hath seated men triumphantly, and they have been exalted.

Remove the dross from the silver, and there cometh forth, to the refiner, a vessel: Remove a lawless man from before the king, that his throne, may be established in righteousness.
