1 Chronicles 17 ©
Nathan, first approving David's purpose to build God an house, afterward by the word of the Lord forbiddeth it, but with assurance of favour, and a promise of especial blessings in his seed. David's prayer and thanksgiving.
Also jI will ordain a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, and they shall dwell in their place, and shall be moved no more; neither shall the children of wickedness waste them kany more, as at the beginning,
But I will settle him in mine house and in my kingdom for ever: and his throne shall be established for evermore.
And yet sthis was a small thing in thine eyes, O God; for thou hast also spoken of thy servant's house for a great while to come, and hast tregarded me according to the estate of a man of high degree, O LORD God.
And ywhat one nation in the earth is like thy people Israel, whom God went to redeem to be his own people, to make thee a name of greatness and terribleness, by driving out nations from before thy people, whom thou hast redeemed out of Egypt?
