Context11When your days are fulfilled that you must go to be with your fathers, that I will set up one of your descendants after you, who will be of your sons; and I will establish his kingdom. 12He shall build for Me a house, and I will establish his throne forever. 13I will be his father and he shall be My son; and I will not take My lovingkindness away from him, as I took it from him who was before you. 14But I will settle him in My house and in My kingdom forever, and his throne shall be established forever. 15According to all these words and according to all this vision, so Nathan spoke to David.
Davids Prayer in Response
16Then David the king went in and sat before the LORD and said, Who am I, O LORD God, and what is my house that You have brought me this far? 17This was a small thing in Your eyes, O God; but You have spoken of Your servants house for a great while to come, and have regarded me according to the standard of a man of high degree, O LORD God. 18What more can David still say to You concerning the honor bestowed on Your servant? For You know Your servant. 19O LORD, for Your servants sake, and according to Your own heart, You have wrought all this greatness, to make known all these great things. 20O LORD, there is none like You, nor is there any God besides You, according to all that we have heard with our ears. 21And what one nation in the earth is like Your people Israel, whom God went to redeem for Himself as a people, to make You a name by great and terrible things, in driving out nations from before Your people, whom You redeemed out of Egypt? 22For Your people Israel You made Your own people forever, and You, O LORD, became their God.
23Now, O LORD, let the word that You have spoken concerning Your servant and concerning his house be established forever, and do as You have spoken. 24Let Your name be established and magnified forever, saying, The LORD of hosts is the God of Israel, even a God to Israel; and the house of David Your servant is established before You. 25For You, O my God, have revealed to Your servant that You will build for him a house; therefore Your servant has found courage to pray before You. 26Now, O LORD, You are God, and have promised this good thing to Your servant. 27And now it has pleased You to bless the house of Your servant, that it may continue forever before You; for You, O LORD, have blessed, and it is blessed forever.
