7:2 that the king said to Nathan the prophet, See now, I dwell in a house of cedar, but the ark of God dwells within curtains.
7:3 Nathan said to the king, Go, do all that is in your heart; for Yahweh is with you.
7:4 It happened the same night, that the word of Yahweh came to Nathan, saying,
7:5 Go and tell my servant David, Thus says Yahweh, Shall you build me a house for me to dwell in?
7:7 In all places in which I have walked with all the children of Israel, spoke I a word with any of the tribes of Israel, whom I commanded to be shepherd of my people Israel, saying, Why have you not built me a house of cedar?
7:9 and I have been with you wherever you went, and have cut off all your enemies from before you; and I will make you a great name, like the name of the great ones who are in the earth.
7:10 I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in their own place, and be moved no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as at the first,
7:12 When your days are fulfilled, and you shall sleep with your fathers, I will set up your seed after you, who shall proceed out of your bowels, and I will establish his kingdom.
7:13 He shall build a house for my name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.
7:15 but my lovingkindness shall not depart from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before you.
7:16 Your house and your kingdom shall be made sure for ever before you: your throne shall be established forever.
7:17 According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak to David.
7:18 Then David the king went in, and sat before Yahweh; and he said, Who am I, Lord Yahweh, and what is my house, that you have brought me thus far?
7:20 What can David say more to you? for you know your servant, Lord Yahweh.
7:23 What one nation in the earth is like your 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 your land, before your people, whom you redeem to you out of Egypt, [from] the nations and their gods?
7:24 You did establish to yourself your people Israel to be a people to you forever; and you, Yahweh, became their God.
7:25 Now, Yahweh God, the word that you have spoken concerning your servant, and concerning his house, confirm you it forever, and do as you have spoken.
7:29 now therefore let it please you to bless the house of your servant, that it may continue forever before you; for you, Lord Yahweh, have spoken it: and with your blessing let the house of your servant be blessed forever.
