I Chronicles 17

  <  BACK



17:1 Now it came to pass, as David sat in his house, that David said to Nathan the prophet, 
Lo, I dwell in an house of cedars, but the ark of the covenant of the LORD remaineth under curtains.

17:2 Then Nathan said unto David, Do all that is in thine heart; for God is with thee.

17:3 And it came to pass the same night, that the word of God came to Nathan, saying, 

17:4 Go and tell David my servant, 
Thus saith the LORD, Thou shalt not build me an house to dwell in: 

17:5 For I have not dwelt in an house since the day that I brought up Israel unto this day; 
but have gone from tent to tent, and from one tabernacle to another.

17:6 Wheresoever I have walked with all Israel, spake I a word to any of the judges of Israel, 
whom I commanded to feed my people, saying, Why have ye not built me an house of cedars? 

17:7 Now therefore thus shalt thou say unto my servant David, 
Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, 
even from following the sheep, that thou shouldest be ruler over my people Israel: 

17:8 And I have been with thee whithersoever thou hast walked, 
and have cut off all thine enemies from before thee, 
and have made thee a name like the name of the great men that are in the earth.

17:9 Also I 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 any more, as at the beginning, 

17:10 And since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel. 
Moreover I will subdue all thine enemies. 
Furthermore I tell thee that the LORD will build thee an house.

17:11 And it shall come to pass, when thy days be expired that thou must go to be with thy fathers, 
that I will raise up thy seed after thee, which shall be of thy sons; and I will establish his kingdom.

17:12 He shall build me an house, and I will stablish his throne for ever.

17:13 I will be his father, and he shall be my son: 
and I will not take my mercy away from him, as I took it from him that was before thee: 

17:14 But I will settle him in mine house and in my kingdom for ever: 
and his throne shall be established for evermore.

17:15 According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak unto David.

17:16 And David the king came and sat before the LORD, and said, 
Who am I, O LORD God, and what is mine house, that thou hast brought me hitherto? 

17:17 And yet this 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 regarded me according to the estate of a man of high degree, O LORD God.

17:18 What can David speak more to thee for the honour of thy servant? for thou knowest thy servant.

17:19 O LORD, for thy servant's sake, and according to thine own heart, 
hast thou done all this greatness, in making known all these great things.

17:20 O LORD, there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, 
according to all that we have heard with our ears.

17:21 And what 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? 

17:22 For thy people Israel didst thou make thine own people for ever; 
and thou, LORD, becamest their God.

17:23 Therefore now, LORD, let the thing that thou hast spoken concerning thy servant 
and concerning his house be established for ever, and do as thou hast said.

17:24 Let it even be established, that thy name may be magnified for ever, saying, 
The LORD of hosts is the God of Israel, even a God to Israel: 
and let the house of David thy servant be established before thee.

17:25 For thou, O my God, hast told thy servant that thou wilt build him an house: 
therefore thy servant hath found in his heart to pray before thee.

17:26 And now, LORD, thou art God, and hast promised this goodness unto thy servant: 

17:27 Now therefore let it please thee to bless the house of thy servant, 
that it may be before thee for ever: for thou blessest, O LORD, and it shall be blessed for ever.
