And it cameH1961 to pass, whenH3588 the kingH4428 satH3427 in his house,H1004 and the LORDH3068 had given him restH5117 roundH5439 about from allH3605 his enemies;H341
That the kingH4428 saidH559 to NathanH5416 the prophet,H5030 SeeH7200 now,H4994 I dwellH3427 in an houseH1004 of cedar,H730 but the arkH727 of GodH430 dwellsH3427 withinH8432 curtains.H3407
And NathanH5416 saidH559 to the king,H4428 Go,H3212 doH6213 allH3605 that is in your heart;H3824 for the LORDH3068 is with you.
And it cameH1961 to pass that night,H3915 that the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 cameH1961 to Nathan,H5416 saying,H559
GoH3212 and tellH559 my servantH5650 David,H1732 ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORD,H3068 Shall you buildH1129 me an houseH1004 for me to dwellH3427 in?
WhereasH3588 I have not dwelledH3427 in any houseH1004 since the timeH3117 that I broughtH5927 up the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 out of Egypt,H4714 even to thisH2088 day,H3117 but have walkedH1980 in a tentH168 and in a tabernacle.H4908
In allH3605 the places whereinH834 I have walkedH1980 with allH3605 the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 spokeH1696 I a wordH1697 with anyH259 of the tribesH7626 of Israel,H3478 whomH834 I commandedH6680 to feedH7462 my peopleH5971 Israel,H3478 saying,H559 WhyH4100 buildH1129 you not me an houseH1004 of cedar?H730
NowH6258 therefore so shall you sayH559 to my servantH5650 David,H1732 ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 of hosts,H6635 I tookH3947 you from the sheepcote,H5116 from followingH310 the sheep,H6629 to be rulerH5057 overH5921 my people,H5971 overH5921 Israel:H3478
And I was with you whereverH3605 H834 you went,H1980 and have cutH3772 off allH3605 your enemiesH341 out of your sight,H6440 and have madeH6213 you a greatH1419 name,H8034 like to the nameH8034 of the greatH1419 men that are in the earth.H776
Moreover I will appointH7760 a placeH4725 for my peopleH5971 Israel,H3478 and will plantH5193 them, that they may dwellH7931 in a placeH8478 of their own, and moveH7264 noH3808 more;H5750 neitherH3808 shall the childrenH1121 of wickednessH5766 afflictH6031 them any more,H3254 as beforetime,H7223
And as sinceH4480 the timeH3117 that I commandedH6680 judgesH8199 to be overH5921 my peopleH5971 Israel,H3478 and have caused you to restH5117 from allH3605 your enemies.H341 Also the LORDH3068 tellsH5046 you that he will makeH6213 you an house.H1004
And whenH3588 your daysH3117 be fulfilled,H4390 and you shall sleepH7901 with your fathers,H1 I will setH6965 up your seedH2233 afterH310 you, whichH834 shall proceedH3318 out of your bowels,H4578 and I will establishH3559 his kingdom.H4467
He shall buildH1129 an houseH1004 for my name,H8034 and I will establishH3559 the throneH3678 of his kingdomH4467 for ever.H5769
I will be his father,H1 and he shall be my son.H1121 IfH834 he commitH5753 iniquity,H5753 I will chastenH3198 him with the rodH7626 of men,H582 and with the stripesH5061 of the childrenH1121 of men:H120
But my mercyH2617 shall not departH5493 away from him, as I tookH5493 it from Saul,H7586 whomH834 I putH5493 awayH5493 beforeH6440 you.
And your houseH1004 and your kingdomH4467 shall be establishedH539 for everH5769 beforeH6440 you: your throneH3678 shall be establishedH3559 for ever.H5769
According to allH3605 theseH428 words,H1697 and according to allH3605 thisH2088 vision,H2384 soH3651 did NathanH5416 speakH1696 to David.H1732
Then wentH935 kingH4428 DavidH1732 in, and satH3427 beforeH6440 the LORD,H3068 and he said,H559 WhoH4310 am I, O LordH136 GOD?H3069 and whatH4310 is my house,H1004 that you have broughtH935 me till now?H1988
And thisH2063 was yetH5750 a smallH6994 thing in your sight,H5869 O LordH136 GOD;H3069 but you have spokenH1696 alsoH1571 of your servant'sH5650 houseH1004 for a greatH7350 whileH7350 to come. And is thisH2063 the mannerH8452 of man,H120 O LordH136 GOD?H3069
And whatH4100 can DavidH1732 sayH1696 moreH5750 to you? for you, LordH136 GOD,H3069 knowH3045 your servant.H5650
For your word'sH1697 sake,H5668 and according to your own heart,H3820 have you doneH6213 allH3605 theseH2063 greatH1420 things, to make your servantH5650 knowH3045 them.
WhyH5921 H3651 you are great,H1431 O LORDH3068 God:H430 for there is noneH369 likeH3644 you, neitherH369 is there any GodH430 besideH2108 you, according to allH3605 that we have heardH8085 with our ears.H241
And whatH4310 oneH259 nationH1471 in the earthH776 is like your people,H5971 even like Israel,H3478 whomH834 GodH430 wentH1980 to redeemH6299 for a peopleH5971 to himself, and to makeH7760 him a name,H8034 and to doH6213 for you greatH1420 things and terrible,H3372 for your land,H776 beforeH6440 your people,H5971 whichH834 you redeemedH6299 to you from Egypt,H4714 from the nationsH1471 and their gods?H430
For you have confirmedH3559 to yourself your peopleH5971 IsraelH3478 to be a peopleH5971 to you for ever:H5769 and you, LORD,H3068 are becomeH1961 their God.H430
And now,H6258 O LORDH3068 God,H430 the wordH1697 that you have spokenH1696 concerningH5921 your servant,H5650 and concerningH5921 his house,H1004 establishH6965 it for ever,H5769 and doH6213 as you have said.H559
And let your nameH8034 be magnifiedH1431 for ever,H5769 saying,H559 The LORDH3068 of hostsH6635 is the GodH430 overH5921 Israel:H3478 and let the houseH1004 of your servantH5650 DavidH1732 be establishedH3559 beforeH6440 you.
For you, O LORDH3068 of hosts,H6635 GodH430 of Israel,H3478 have revealedH1540 to your servant,H5650 saying,H559 I will buildH1129 you an house:H1004 therefore has your servantH5650 foundH4672 in his heartH3820 to prayH6419 thisH2063 prayerH8605 to you.
And now,H6258 O LordH136 GOD,H3069 you are that God,H430 and your wordsH1697 be true,H571 and you have promisedH1696 thisH2088 goodnessH2896 to your servant:H5650
Therefore nowH6258 let it pleaseH2974 you to blessH1288 the houseH1004 of your servant,H5650 that it may continueH1961 for everH5769 beforeH6440 you: for you, O LordH136 GOD,H3069 have spokenH1696 it: and with your blessingH1293 let the houseH1004 of your servantH5650 be blessedH1288 for ever.H5769
